Location of the hotel is excellent - 5 min drive from the busy centre in a beautiful bay. Our room was quite big, with a terrace and amazing view. We ate only breakfast which was very good. The only disappointing thing was gym. Machines are very old and air conditioning system is not good either.

Choosing Elounda for our summer vacation was an easy choice, but deciding on the resort we would be booking wasn’t. There is a selection of 3-4 hotels that really look stunning. I must say that I can’t imagine them being more beautiful, relaxing, and luxurious than BLUE PALACE! We booked a room with a private pool which was perfect in...

We have just had a 10 day stay at the Blue Palace. Lots of good things to say about the views and general hotel amenities but unfortunately marred by the inconsistent customer service. General feeling of arrogance from the management and a real lack of experience on how to engage with customers. Many of the local staff in the restaurants...

I stayed at the blue palace for. 4 nights on my honeymoon. The room was beautiful and had a fantastic view. There were always chairs at the pool and beach area so we didn't rush down. The gym was great and we exercised every day. We also took advantage of the spa which was nice as well. Because we were...
