We stayed in this lovely hotel for a week with our 6 month old baby. The hotel is fantastic, lovely decor, lovely rooms and a great location. However, as we paid more money for a private pool room we were extremely disappointed to find they were ice cold! Far too cold for me and my partner, let alone our baby....

When we booked this hotel (via Sovereign Holidays) we thought it would be good but did not appreciate how good it turned out to be. Beautiful location overlooking Spinalonga Island, large well-equipped room, marvellous staff who all seemed keen to look after their guests, excellent buffet -style restaurant with lots of Greek food choices. The only complaint was the hotel...

We have recently returned from an amazing ten day stay at the Blue Palace and we will certainly be looking to return. The hotel itself is beautiful from the minute you walk into the beautiful reception all the way through to the Bungalows and restaurants. We were very happy with the location of our Sea view Bungalow and the room...

This Is a large and beautiful property. We had a bungalow suite with a private pool and the bungalow suites offer stunning views of the beach. This hotel is hi tech in terms of the application to access various information needs and your billing on the TV screen itself. The cable car that connects the reception to the beach is...

When you arrive at the resort the first impression of the lobby is just amazing. It has a huge ceiling and is a perfect replica of the Venetian Arsenali. The check-in was quick and while somebody accompany you to your room, they explain the most important things of the hotel. Even the smallest rooms are quite spacious. The decor is...

We have just arrived back from the blue palace and I echo many of the comments made by other reviewers, especially around service and the kids club - Maria is a diamond. The spa facilities are excellent - although the mens hot tub and womens steam room were both out of action at various times. a couple of small negatives...

The blue palace should be on everyone's bucket list. Not only is this resort on Crete, renowned for hospitality but the place has elegance and style mixed with the most magnificent views you could wish for. As I write this , Iam looking at the caldera in Santorini, and although the views are magnificent, the package at Elounda is far...

This resort is absolutely lovely, and we had a lovely stay there last year. You can't really go wrong staying at a 5 star resort in Crete, with it's own private beach, sun beds with table service...I mean, it really is paradise.
