Stayed here in June in a pool room for our 20th anniversary. The building is magnificent and while on a hillside, its the most well laid out amazingly beautiful hotel. One of the best Ive seen. Not only that, its perfectly placed for short evening walks to Plaka village (5 mins to the left). We absolutely fell in love with...

We stayed at the Blue Palace for the first 5 days of our honeymoon in August 2016. We stayed in a Superior Bungalow with private pool. I unfortunately cannot remember the name of the specific one we were in, but it was on the south end of the resort and was only "attached" to one other private pool separated by...

The Blue Palace Resort & Spa is an absolutely amazing property... but my wife and I didn't arrive until late at night so we really didn't get to see the resort until we woke up and opened our sliding door the next morning... the views of the turquoise blue Mediterranean and the Gulf of Elounda were unbelievable. The rooms are...

We did not have the best experience at The Blue Palace. It started with a disappointing excursion to Knossos and lunch that was set up by the hotel. It fell well short of expectations and no thought was put into it while arranging it. Not to mention it cost a fortune (470 euro). To put it in perspective, it would...

If you like large resorts, this is it but they could work more on the service to get to a luxury level, the food concepts and variations were good but the actual food didn't do much for us so we found our way down to the local restaurants in the port which were much better.

We had a beautiful room and we were cheekily taking a golf buggy back and forth our entire stay. The beach is nice and we like the layout and facilities. We spent much of our days enjoying a routine that included lunch at the greek taverna and the restaurants on site.
