We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this hotel, so much that we preferred to stay in the resort than leave to sight see!! Relaxing, clean, beautiful tranquil views, lovely food which we enjoyed all inclusively! My husband would have preferred a more English breakfast but we were in crete lol!
We had a very relaxing holiday staying at this hotel. We had an excellent standard room (it was more like an apartment with a double bedroom, 2 bathrooms, lounge area & large balcony). On arrival we were escorted to and given a quick tour of our room by the manager. The welcome pack included sparkling wine and pastries along with a large bottle of water. Also on arrival, the hotel asked if there was any special occasion during our stay - as it was our wedding anniversary, they arranged to provide a cake (it was a delicious chocolate cake) after our restaurant dinner!
All the hotel staff were very polite, friendly and helpful. There was a huge variety available at the buffet breakfast, and table service was provided for ordering omelettes, pancakes, toast, tea/coffee. During our stay we ate at 2 of the hotel's a la carte restaurants, the food and ambience was superb, as was the service. The hotel's restaurants were a bit pricey (although the food is of a very high standard) but there were lots of reasonably priced tavernas nearby.
The hotel has landscaped gardens which were a delight to walk through on the way to breakfast/pool/beach. There were lots of options for sunbathing: 2 pools, a small beach and extensive terraced areas next to the beach, so we never had a problem getting suitable sunloungers. The hotel provides fresh towels every day for sunbathing and waiter service all day.
This hotel thoroughly deserves its 5 star rating. We would definitely stay here again.

This hotel has really amazing views over the bay from every room and from the bar/restaurant areas. The hotel itself isn't the best we've ever stayed in, but with a view like that who cares? Quite dated and a very small bar etc., but the reason we went was for the view so we weren't disappointed!

We went to the blue palace for a week. We were upgraded to a suite with a private pool and terrace. It was amazing. The staff are also lovely and very helpful. The blue door restaurant is fantastic and the on the beach setting is very romantic and the food is amazing. Flame the steakhouse was also very good. I could not recommend this hotel enough. We will be back next year for sure!

We chose a week at the Elounda Beach to celebrate our wedding anniversary and from the moment we arrived it was like a second honeymoon.
As soon as we came through the front gate the elegance and peace of the resort struck us.
The staff at reception were appropriately attentive and made us feel very welcome.
Our suite was beautifully laid out with a stunning sea view - if the rest of the hotel hadn't been so stunning we would have loved to have spent even more time there.
Lounging under the olive trees by the white sandy beach was the perfect way to relax during the day with the occasional swim in the crystal clear waters to cool down.
All of the restaurants were excellent covering a range of cuisines and with superb wine lists (the local Cretan wines were a revelation). Service was impeccable. Half board is thoroughly recommended as you will not want to venture far from the resort. A nice touch was the decorated chocolate gateau we were presented with at dinner on our anniversary.
We thoroughly recommend the resort and look forward to returning in the future.

I have stayed on several ocasions at this hotel. The staff are excellent and genuinely happy to serve you. The breakfast buffet was plentifull with a variety of choices. Room cleanliness was top notch, with alot of amenities availabel. The free wi-fi was surprisingly fast. The only negative I would say are the beds, perhaps in my room the mattresses were due for a change, but its my personal preference I guess. I would gladly return to this hotel.
