The Blue Palace is luxury accommodation at its best. Built using local stone on a hillside, the resort spreads over a large area; you never feel enclosed. Everywhere is kept immaculate. The rooms spacious and well equipped, enjoying magnificent views of Plaka Bay and the island of Spinalonga. Our superior room featured a private pool. Well, more like a cold plunge! Free Wi-fi throughout is reasonable. The private beach is spread out with quality beds under fixed umbrellas, on wooden islands amongst the large pebbles. Good space between each island; beds are never blocked by early risers- to my knowledge. The last time we visited was in 2015, two years before. We remember some of the staff and they remember us! Staff retention is always a good sign of a well managed business. The standard of cuisine is very good. We had a half board deal. So, what’s changed since we were last here? The first thing was a segregation on the beach, called the ‘Haven’. Reserved for people staying in the more ‘exclusive’ rooms or villas. A private area on a private beach? Hmm. Those of us already spending thousands to enjoy this hotel suddenly looked an as second class? The beds we enjoyed on our first visit were now inside this zone. We felt a bit excluded. We got beds just outside the roped off area. We witnessed a number of guests turfed out over our week stay by large male beach attendants. “What is your room numberr? Sorry, this private area - I hhhave to ask you to leave.” Now those of us without kids, or those of us wishing to get away from the little darlings, may be a tad disappointed. Although the third week in October, in a very adult oriented establishment, I was surprised to see so many kids literally running about. From babies wailing on the beach to young kids yelling, to older kids running around the buffet areas. Bar prices are a little steep. A latte macchiato at €6 a cup to a bottle of house rose at €40, which caught us out on our first evening buffet experience! So to recap, the Blue Palace is an extra ordinary hotel. No hesitation whatsoever to recommend. On a purely personal note I suggest to management to re think the concept of ‘the Haven’ and maybe offer a more discreet service to your higher paying clients. Perhaps adult only weeks now and again to target a different market maybe?

The Blue Palace is a beautiful hotel set within a landscaped hillside. Both our room and common areas were immaculate, and the staff were incredibly helpful and attentive throughout our stay. The grounds do cascade down a steep hill/cliff however, which can result in long waiting times for the single life/cart - this is not ideal if you're not into climbing steps occasionally or lack mobility. The beach is very tidy with stunning views across the bay to Spinalonga (the sunsets are gorgeous) but the beach is made up from 100% imported pebble stones i.e. no sand. This may bother sand lovers. The gym is very well equipped and set within a nice spa. I'd certainly return and I am pretty fussy!

The property is stunning, we really enjoyed our stay. 2 things I mentioned to the manager, and hopefully it’s been fixed: 1. Outdoor restaurants allow smoking. As a non smoker, you either have to sit inside or put up with others blowing smoke on your table through your dinner. Yak! 2. Some guests come down before breakfast and “reserve” loungers for hours and hours. Or go up during the day, but leave a book or a towel to “save” the lounger. As a result, if you come down any time between 9am and 3-4pm, you can’t get a lounger on the beach, and have to set up somewhere in the back by the pool or on the grass. It’s not considerate and inefficient. The hotel should institute a clear policy against such rude and unfair behavior.

Had never been to Crete before so didn't know what to expect. Our holiday at the Blue Palace was just amazing with so many staff around making our stay completely relaxing, we choose an apartment with private infinity pool which made life even lazier. The on-site restaurants were all excellent but there was also a big choice of local restaurants within the local village a short walk away. Very friendly locals and hotel staff made our stay so enjoyable we'd like to go back sometime soon. Spinalonga Island is a short boat trip away but to be fair its gets swamped with people every day and there's not much shade and even less to see - but that's another story.

The hotel is generally very good, our room was well eqiped, comfortable and clean. The whole hotel seemed to be well maintained and the only average experience was the food which was slightly bland/ ordinary to be honest. The beach area and facilities were fantastic, clean, well thought out and again; serviced by amazing, friendly staff- food and drinks at the beach bar were really good. Staff at the main bar in the hotel were all typically Greek- friendly, humerus and welcoming. Great service led to a great holiday, thank you !
