very well designed. service was amazing. Plakka only a short stroll.
We could hear family in next door room with young children so goodness knows what its like when it's fully booked. Good food and ambience with live music in the greek taverna - you would never know it was a hotel restaurant (small and quaint - you need to book and that was out of season!) but expensive. The pavement to Plakka could be extended so that it is not so dangerous walking there!
All rooms have a good view of the bay. You can swim in ciear deep water accessible via pier and ladder. Heated salt water pool in spa. Common pools are large enough to allow swimming. Adequate gym. 60 square meters of things to eat at breakfast! Breakfast is served on a terrace with a great view of the Bay. Luxurious room, bedding, and towels. Gorgeous landscaping.
Isolated location: If your ferry comes in late, it is a 90 euro taxi ride from Heraklion to the hotel. 7 euro taxi ride from hotel to Elounda. Bus system is fine, but bus to/from hotel stops running at 5:30 pm. Food in the hotel is greatly overpriced, but it is only a 7-minute walk to Plaka, with its beachfront restaurants and minimart. Surprisingly, the hotel doesn't offer half-day sailboat cruises. The only "sailboat" has no sails! The only free wi-fi is in the reception area. 8 euros to connect to the wi-fi in your room for one hour! Their hot tub seats only 1 person with long legs. Even at a 5 star resort in Greece, you can't drink the water or flush the toilet paper. But hotel provides 2 free bottles of water per day and drinking water in gym and lobby.
A lot of natural light in the rooms and eating areas, restaurants from local town within walking distance
there is only one lift in the whole resort which was a wait.
Amazing resort. We really enjoy every moment during our stay at this hotel... All was perfect to us and so romantic and quite place that we would advise any couples to experience
this place is amazing all the way to the last detail!! rooms are great, facilities are great.
when there, make sure that you don't have a parking place outside your door as the hotel's micro van is making a terrible noise very early in the morning
The bathroom shower was the only positive part of our trip to the Blue Palace. Otherwise, every part of our experience greatly failed to meet our expectations.
The hotel is massive, requiring a long tram ride from reception to the beach area. Everything feels slightly outdated. The paint is chipping, the ceiling is cracked, and the furniture is worn. The food at all of the onsite restaurants is incredibly overpriced, and surprisingly very poor quality. Expect to venture into the nearby town of Plaka or Elounda if you want a good meal. The spa, which was voted best spa of Europe in 2007, doesn't appear to have been updated since. A ring of algae and mold lined the edge of the salt water pool, the jacuzzi didn't work, and the locker rooms were dingy. The so-called heated pool was cold, definitely not the 82 degrees that hotel management claimed it was. The 'beach' consists of wooden walkways laid on top of stones. To get to the water, you have to walk out onto a plastic dock and climb down a ladder. The room felt slightly outdated. The TV was broken and only displayed channels without color. The offerings on their pay-per-view movie service were laughable and very overpriced. The lack of free wifi in the rooms was frustrating, and the free wifi offered in the lobby area was completely unreliable. Our first day there we realized we wanted to leave the resort and get a refund for our second night. After an infuriating process meeting with every manager, and waiting for over 3 hours, we were told that they would not refund our money. We then insisted on meeting with the General Manager, who again, refused to honor our request for a refund. His reason for not making an exception to their cancellation policy was "over the many years that I have worked for the hotel, we have never received negative reviews of this nature, which leads me to believe that what you're telling me is not the truth." We have never felt more taken advantage of, or disrespected from hotel management in our entire lives. Not one part of our stay at the Blue Palace felt worthy of 5-stars.
Everything was perfect.
The location Breakfast The private beach
Internet should be free And even in the lobby was very slow The laundry should not close at 3pm Room should have tea And coffee facilities
The location was superb with a great view of the sea and surrounding area. The room was clean and white and with great furnishings. Bathroom was superb. Best part though was the balcony with the great view of the bay, where we had room service - breakfast on one day, and dinner on another. Both of which, by the way, were fantastic. Have the sea bass. It's amazing! All three restaurants also were top quality. If I had to choose one, I'd say the steakhouse was the best. Only just. The greek restaurant was nice but even better was the fact it was practically on the beach. Everyone at the hotel spoke with a smile and service was excellent. There was just nothing wrong with this hotel at all. Everything you could need for a relaxing holiday experience. Highly recommended.
The Spa The breakfast The location The staff Private yoga lessons by the beach
The view was breath taking worth every penny. The hotel is excellent and the room we had (suite with private pool) was just a good. I will be returning without a doubt
Very minor but in room films and English TV channels was very limited.
The location, stunning views on the Spinalonga Island and the sun rise from the room as well as the terrace. The asian restaurant of the hotel is very good too.
Common toilettes not very clean.
The staff were excellent, very happy to help with any request. The choice of food and drinks for breakfast was spectacular and the view from most parts of the hotel were stunning.
The hotel is spread widely over a hill. The reception, breakfast, bar etc are at the top and the stony beach is right at the bottom. You either walk or wait for one funicular which is very slow considering how many guests there are.
Hotel is artistically stunning but on a hill. A lot of walking from reception, bedrooms, and particularly the beach. Only one lift so a lot of waiting.
everything private pool,beach, staff
prices in the Restaurants
The Italian restaurant is really poor and needs some serious attention. Get an Italian chef or someone who has trained or worked in Italy. Stick to the actual...true...Italian recipes.
The private heated pool at our bungalow. The beautiful main pools. The scenery. The helpful staff. The whole ambiance.
The lighting in the Blue Door restaurant was very dim-romantic, but difficult to read the menu! Other than that , it was absolutely lovely.v
Location, facitilies, spa, ambience, food, weather.
Private pools are just grandiose sunken baths.
The view of the sea and the island Spinalonga. Friendly staff.
Noise of a airco outside the room. More WC and keep them clean.
Beautiful view of Spinalonga, luxurious rooms and facilities, amazing spa
Poor internet connection, staff was overeager constantly knocking on our door for one thing or another, bad movie selection on tv
Very nice hotel Luxe is everywhere
we couldn't sleep in the morning because of noise from other rooms next to us It s a very large hotel (not very cosy)
The view is amazing so worth a visit just for that.
It feels like a complex that is very difficult to escape! We would have to call reception for a gulf buggy to collect us just to take us to reception as that's how far the bungalow was from main building. Then it's a funicular ride (sometimes waiting 5 mins for it to arrive) then another 5 min walk to beach. Doesn't feel like a homely resort but a soulless resort. We reserved a double room with double bed but this was made up of two single beds pushed together! For the price I was upset by this. When I asked for a double mattress, they didn't have one! Also this is a family oriented hotel, not really suited to couples. The restaurants are very expensive, the food is average and service not great. Your better off going to Plaka village for local cuisine.
Accommodation excellent and very good experience.
Restaurant staff overattentive Water for room very expensive
Great view beautify rooms great pools, wonderful facilities
One elevator to the beach without ac and too slowly.
The spectacular views of that Turquoise and acquamarine water and the island of Spinalonga, the funicular down to the beach (even the fact that it was pebbles and not sand - better for when the wind kicks up), the private infinity pools, the variety of restaurants (Greek outdoors taverna fabulous with beautiful live music), the location - 5 minute walk to Plakas, a cute little fishing town and short drive to Agios Nikolas, with bustling nightlife, as well as Elounda, and the services was always friendly
Our first room (with balcony pool) had a young family next door with kids up early in the morning splashing in their own neighboring pool. We were quickly accommodated and able to move to a quiet corner suite with the same spectacular views and own pool.
