We stayed at this hotel in early June. The amenities are excellent, definitely 5 star and the breakfasts are fantastic. I have seen other reviews and I'm not sure where they were but the staff were all really friendly and attentive and the tea / coffee service excellent, they were there practically before you sat down (although I would concur...

After AMAZING stays at three other properties in Athens, Mykonos, and Santorini, this was a huge let-down and unfortunate ending to our wonderful Greek Island trip of a lifetime. The reception staff was abrupt and unfriendly while checking us in, and could not find our reservation right away despite me producing a voucher from the travel agent (which none of...

We stayed in Blue Palace for 10 days in June and thoroughly loved the experience from start to finish. Upon arrival we were met and welcomed warmly, given refreshments while we checked in, and then shown around the hotel and to our room while our luggage was delivered and our car parked up for us. Our room itself was amazing,...

The Resort: This is an excellent resort, lovely contemporary architecture and beautifully maintained, all very fresh. This is a big hotel complex spread out on the side of an east facing hill sloping down to the resorts private beach. Although the resort is big (circa 250 rooms?), it is spear out, so it didn’t feel crowded at all. As far...

Amazing Hotel, Friendly helpful staff and lovely spacious rooms and the views are jaw dropping. The bathrooms are top notch! When we first got here, we were given the tour of the hotel. The spa is lovely but expensive and the gym is pretty modern too! The Vernicular lift is a bit annoying as other people have mentioned but you...
