One of the best hotels in Greece
We picked the Blue Palace hotel because we wanted to have luxurious holiday last few days at our holiday in Crete. And we were not disappointed. This hotel is amazing! From our hotel room to breakfast, hotel setting, swimming pool area, the hotel grounds and fantastic service. We booked superior bungalow pool king size room which was spacious with big bathroom and wonderfull swimming pool in front of the room with amazing sea views. The breakfast was out of this world! So much choice it was unforgettable. The hotel is set on the big land and has many areas for walking and the cable car that takes you to the beach area. Among other areas, it also has tea/coffee resting divided areas near the reception which looks fabulous in the evening with low light. We enjoyed stay here so much I will never forget the wonderful setting, the amazing service and fantastic feeling that Blue Place offers. This hotel is not cheap but it delivers with luxurious feel and relaxed holiday that we wanted.
A beautiful and relaxing stay
An incredible place. Enjoyed everything about this hotel. Very helpful staff, extremely clean. We were able to walk to the local town to eat in the evenings. We did visit slightly out of season so it may not have been as busy as it probably gets but very happy travellers!
Beautiful, quiet hotel
This hotel is absolutely beautiful & perfect if you’re looking for a quiet couples escape. There is a small village with a handful of shops & restaurants within walking distance or a larger town a short drive away. The people were so friendly & the staff here was incredibly helpful. Not every restaurant at the resort is open every night but all of the food we had was fresh & so amazing! Our favorite was the cute little place down by the water where we got the fresh catch of the day & it was one of the best meals we’ve ever had (pics below). We also had a fabulous couples massage here! The only thing I would change is some added privacy between the “private” infinity pools. There is a wall separating one pool from the next but a small fence so you weren’t staring at your neighbors would be nice.
Six nights was not enough - Coming back soon!
This is what luxury should be. Our room had a beautiful view of Spinalonga that we could enjoy from our deck and private pool. We tried a different restaurant every night (including one room service) and enjoyed each unique cuisine and experience. The breakfast buffet gives you the opportunity to try local baked goods and the fresh local yogurt. Champagne and a Bloody Mary bar for extra relaxation. The resort is a little out of the way so I highly recommend renting a car. It is about 1.5 hours to the Palace of Knossos but totally worth the drive. Staff was amazing. We were lucky to have perfect weather in the middle of May and we took the boat to the island which is a must do. If you go, remember to bring money to get into the island...easy to forget as we walked from the beach to the boat with only a room key. Read The Island (Hislop novel) before going - makes the walk into town that much more meaningful.
Absolutely marvellous hotel
The reviews we’d read meant we expected high standards. It didn’t disappoint. We arrived late and were offered a beautiful meal on our terrace. First impressions were fabulous. We had a lovely room, with the most comfortable bed and heated private pool. Our view was directly onto Spinalonga and was charming. We had half board and made great use of the main restaurant. The food was super for both a veggie and meat eater. The service was wonderfully attentive. The bar, other restaurants and the beach were as fantastically staffed. The service was truly excellent in every area of the hotel. We loved the speedboat to spinalonga as others have mentioned. My husband also enjoyed the diving from the blue palace’s happy diver team. We will definitely return and highly recommend.
