Hotel was lovely stunning surroundings and scenery! Drinks and food were a bit pricey but that comes with the territory you expect to pay a bit more while you in such a lovely place! Over all I was very impressed!!

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.

We were returning to Crete for the first time in 25 years, apart from the town being a little bigger, the calm atmosphere and friendliness of the locals was still the same.
The Hotel is hidden in the hill rising from the sea, affording fantastic views. We had a room with an infinity pool looking out to Sea and the island in front of the hotel.
It was an easy walk into town, taking 10 to 20 minutes depending on your speed and ability.
The hotel is small enough to feel personal, but big enough to offer a great selection of food and drink on site. The rooms range from rooms with personal pools, rooms called bungalows, which are large double rooms, and doubles. Staff will go the extra mile to accommodate your needs, the gardener is always busy, and the beautiful gardens reflect this, and members of the family who own the Hotel are always around but unobtrusive.
Watch out for the Barman, Sitirus, he is a charming character, he likes nothing more than to make sure you have what you require and goes out of his way to ensure you have a time at the bar. All in all a very good stay.

Excellent staff that are very attentive, ensuring that you have a great stay.
The hotel has it's own private beach that is superb. There are two sections with a quiet zone.
The whole atmosphere is relaxing and the views are excellent.
Would deffinately recommend.
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.
