We booked through Kuoni a suite with private heated pool. We have little experience of resorts but this year a hand injury prevented me from driving. The suite was a little distant from reception, but very well sited to enjoy uninterrupted views of the sea and day-long sunshine. The staff at all level were helpful; we were regularly offered a...

This hotel is perfectly situated for peace and quiet. We chose this hotel because it is right opposite Spinalonga, which is featured in the book The Island. We liked the fact that as well as the main restaurant, which had a good choice of dishes, there were several al a carte restaurants as well. The hotel was beautifully decorated and...

We visited the Blue Palace at the end of April and stayed for a week. I think we started to relax the moment we arrived. We had a beautiful sea view room and there was a complimentary bottle of honey flavoured raki and some fruit when we arrived. I had also notified the hotel prior to our arrival that we...

Nice luxurious hotel, though distance is a bit far from airport. Hotel is huge and has many blocks, but all within walkable distance though there are buggies to bring us to our block. Got a nice upgrade to suite. Room is huge and well designed, high quality finishes and good amenities. Easy walk to jetty to catch a ferry to...

We really enjoyed our stay here. We were in room 533 which is a two floor suite overlooking the bay. It was gorgeous and nice and quiet with a private pool. The breakfast here is incredible! We also enjoyed the spa and massages. Nothing was any trouble and the room was extremely comfortable. We had great weather in May. A...

We were previously staying at The Domes, but since our friends were leaving before us, we decided to try another spot rather than staying in the same hotel after their departure. The Blue Palace was bigger ( about 200 rooms) than our previous hotel (The Domes) and has a very different culture. It is a Starwood hotel and felt very...

When we arrived I was initially very disappointed and underwhelmed by the resort and the room we were in. We stayed in a "bungalow" with a heated pool. Firstly, the room is not a bungalow. There is a room above it. The room was also quiet modest in size for a luxury hotel. The pool was also too cold. We...

It's a lovely hotel in a beautiful area. Very comfortable rooms. The slight disappointment is this is probably the first SPG property in 10 years that has not upgraded us. Stark contrast to just leaving the Marriott in Chania where we were treated royally. I don't bring this up out of entitlement but there seems to be a recent review...

Recently spent a glorious week with a friend and cannot recommend the hotel highly enough. Accommodation was excellent & spotlessly clean and our room had amazing views of Spinalonga.
