This was our first time at this hotel, and we will definitely go back. Extremely friendly staff, this is a really beautiful hotel with a large pool and sea views. It's a 20-minute stroll into Elounda, where there are excellent restaurants. Couldn't recommend this hotel highly enough, and it's great value for money.

Wasn't sure what to expect, but from the first minute, both my wife and I were extremely pleased we had picked this hotel. The staff, bar none, were all so friendly and accommodating. received a complimentary room upgrade, which was a pleasant surprise. Restaurants were good and the beach was fab. Would thoroughly recommend anyone staying here.

I just got back from staying at the Blue Palace hotel with my girlfriend and had such a wonderful time.
The staff are all outrageously friendly and all went out of their way to make sure we had a wonderful stay.
We were originally going to go for a cheaper option and stay elsewhere but glad we paid a little extra for the comforts this hotel brings.

Just returned from a fantastic & relaxing 13 night stay here @ EGS.
Great location no more than 5 minutes to the Town Square with all the bars, restaurants the beach. The rooms are kept very clean, the bed is more comfortable than our one at home, and great pillows as well which is a rarity in holiday apartments.
The pool is a great place to relax, and sometimes we had the place to ourselves, almost like having your own private villa (see pics). And it never got really busy, always loads of sun beds available.
What really makes this place special? It’s the staff. Every one of them goes out of their way to make sure you have everything you need, and that all is OK. Starting with Alex, who made sure the taxi was waiting for us at the Airport, to the lovely young lady who kept our room nice and clean. But the 3 members of staff who were always there looking after our every need (mainly wine & beer) and deserve a special mention are, Mario, Katerina and Rena. Mario thank you for being a Front of House star, Katerina thank you for keeping us fed and watered all day and Rena thank you for making our breakfast time very special and hilarious every morning.
If you order any drinks from the bar you will be rewarded with Katerina’s famous snack platters (see foodie pics) all complimentary and delicious and when she’s isn’t serving she will be found in the kitchen baking the next batch of lovely homemade cakes and tarts. The lunches are amazing too.

"Luxury villas and suites overlooking Spinalonga:"
We booked our stay right at the end of the season, in the middle of October, but the weather was beautiful and it was still warm enough to swim in the complex's infinity pool. The suite was tasteful and comfortable and the staff couldn't do enough for us. The Argo restaurant was accomplished, if pricey, but visitors really must try The Ferryman in Elounda.

Good location about 5-10 minutes walk from Elounda with nice good sized pool.
Main gripe is the bathroom - shower is tiny - impossible to use without touching the curtain and water gets all over the floor every time it's used. Thankfully the room is cleaned every day. Sink is virtually unsable as it is very narrow and the shelf above it obstructs access.
Despite this still worth the price.
Crete’s most expensive resort, Elounda overlooks the calm blue Gulf of Mirabello and Spinalonga Island. Popular with the rich and famous, it offers discreet, low-profile luxury, with several large five-star hotel complexes built into the hills above the coast. Set in landscaped grounds, they offer facilities such as wellness centres, infinity pools, private beaches, sophisticated on-site dining and chic cocktail bars.
