Blue Aegean is very well located, close to the beach, restaurants, car rental, store and supermarket. We booked directly on the website the package "flight+transfer+stay". We chose an apartment with two bedrooms, terrace, bathroom and kitchenette, perfect for breakfast and convenient for some cooking.  The hotel provides excellent snacks (greek salad, pizzas, burgers...) at very affordable prices. The pool is perfect! The staff is very friendly and professional. We enjoyed our stay very much ! We definitely recommend Blue Aegean !

Friend and I stayed here for 4 nights, the hotel was quiet, clean and perfect for our stay. Pool was lovely and in a courtyard so sheltered, we spent hours by the pool. so many local restaurants and a quiet beach just out the door, with a bigger beach with lots of activities 15 min walk away. Staff were friendly and reassuring especially with the COVID situation. Would definitely stay again

We've never returned to the same hotel twice as there's always somewhere new to try, but we'd happily return to the Blue Aegean! This is a self catering review during COVID, so can't be compared with previous years due to the changes that Dimos and team had to make at short notice. We booked directly through the hotel and, once we became aware that the all inclusive arrangements weren't in place, the hotel were great at putting in place everything we needed prior to our arrival; communications were great and very reassuring. They arranged a private transfer from the airport and negotiated discounts with local tavernas for us. If you want to stay here I would definitely recommend booking direct. It's located in a great spot just a couple of minutes to the beach and a few minutes walk to the bars and tavernas in the area. We stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment; room 17, right beside the pool. A great spot and a really good sized apartment with a separate sleeping area for our little girl. Air con worked fine and kept the room cool and all the other usual amenities were up to standard. The one and only thing I think needs improvement is the showering facilities. Our room had quite low water pressure and needed better drainage; possibly a shower screen rather than a curtain would give a better feel, but it wasn't a dealbreaker. The pool was a great size for the size of the hotel and a good depth at 1.55m at the deepest point. It was nice and cooling but it never felt too chilly to get in, even first thing in the morning! The bar served a good range of drinks at very reasonable prices. The snack bar served a selection of baguettes, burgers, pizzas, nuggets and salads and again, were very reasonably priced. The portion sizes were very typically Cretan (huge!) so you were well taken care of in the food department. The hotel was kept clean throughout our stay; the cleaners were always busy cleaning rooms or public areas and the maintenance team were always out doing something to keep the hotel grounds looking nice. You can book excursions directly from the hotel and they will happily provide you with any information about your stay. Gouves is a great base for getting around the Heraklion area and I would definitely recommend the Blue Aegean for your stay! Our little girl couldn't stop crying on our last day as she didn't want to come home. It felt such a welcoming place; Dimos and Stefanos did a great job at making us feel at home from the minute we arrived to the moment we left. Given the COVID situation, we could have felt uneasy, but we felt completely relaxed the whole time - that's down to the team at this hotel. We hope to come back soon! Thanks for the hospitality! Lee, Nat and Lola
