Wow is all I can say. My wife and I booked this hotel as the front part of our honeymoon. We checked in on 22 July for 4 nights and could not have had a better time. When we checked in we were greeted by Maria, the best employee they have at the resort. There were other people checking in...

The view is stunning and in terms of customer service this has to be one of the best places I've visited and as I get older I get more picky! - nothing was left to chance from the moment we arrived - doorman, porter (car taken away and parked, bags taken to our room), welcome hostess to give us a...

Arrival: My husband and I got married in Santorini and decided to take the ferry across to Crete for our honeymoon. It was an easy journey with roughly 2h at sea and the ferry was very comfortable. Having arrived at port in Heraklion we were slightly shocked to realise our hotel in Elounda was in fact 1h away (I should...

My husband and I stayed here for 6 nights while on our Honeymoon in Greece. We absolutely loved it!! Elounda was located quite a distance from the airport, but after travelling around the whole island of Crete, we were so happy we stayed in Elounda and especially at the Blue Palace. The hotel itself was gorgeous.....very clean, pretty rooms, nice...

We were at the Blue Palace for 10 nights from 16 July 2013. We had a really bad experience with our room allocation. We booked an Island Luxury Suite. Sadly room 709, which supposedly is an Island Luxury Suite, had many of the promised amenities missing most importantly the promised 30 sqm pool was actually an 18 sqm pool tucked...

We stayed here for 10 days in July and the most obvious aspect to mention is the wind. Clearly without it, life would be extemely hot, but be aware that you spend a lot of time weighing things down with rocks to stop it blowing away. The hotel is lovely, although I would not ever stay again in the rooms...

This has to be one of the nicest hotel settings in the world. Stayed as a Platinum member and was upgraded to a heated pool suite. Careful. Some pools are not heated. Great to have a private pool. The breakfast is nice. Great place for families or couples. Beware, not a sand beach. Now for the bad, the Internet is...

It has all the ingredients on paper but somehow does not pull off its 5 stars. The rooms are comfortable, not luxurious but showers good, towels soft, all sorts of pillows available - very clean. No black out curtains (unless you ask) no extras unless you count a bunch of grapes and water (!). It lacks sophistication - I agree...

Hotel has all the facilities to justify its 5 stars, however, it looks like it has lacked in investment/attention to detail and quality over recent months.
