Spent 7 days here in October and loved most aspects of the stay. But considering that this is marketed as a Luxury Collection Resort, it was let down by the little things. No attempt to stop the reserving of the waters edge sun beds- selfish residents simply leave towels to reserve until they finish their late breakfasts and then take...

Stunning hotel. Once we got into our room we opened our patio doors and Spinalonga Island was right in front of us...breathtaking. Service was fantastic and very attentive to our needs. Beautiful rooms, good size. Very clean. We had a private pool and it was cleaned every morning before we were up. We were a bit on the corner so...

If you're SPG Platinum and thinking of staying at the Blue Palace expecting some premium treatment, think again. It seems like you will be treated much better if your tour operator has a good relationship with the hotel, rather than if you have top-tier status with the chain they are supposedly a part of. Those checking in next to us...

We stayed at the Blue Palace for the first 5 days of our honeymoon in August 2016. We stayed in a Superior Bungalow with private pool. I unfortunately cannot remember the name of the specific one we were in, but it was on the south end of the resort and was only "attached" to one other private pool separated by...

We did not have the best experience at The Blue Palace. It started with a disappointing excursion to Knossos and lunch that was set up by the hotel. It fell well short of expectations and no thought was put into it while arranging it. Not to mention it cost a fortune (470 euro). To put it in perspective, it would...
