My husband and I got married at Blue Palace in September, and everything exceeded our expectations. Tatiana and Tonia expertly managed the planning process, our welcome party (including seamless last-minute adjustments) and the day of our wedding. When asked, they offered both honest and valuable advice, and we are so pleased we trusted them with our wedding. We were also very happy with all of the photography and videography work done by Mr. Georgios Augustinatos and August Studios Photography. As it was a destination wedding, we met our photographer only two days before the event, but he made us feel very comfortable and captured a wonderful balance both pre-planned and candid photos. Their eye for the right moment plus their editing quality (for highlight video) was evident when we saw their work. Would without a doubt recommend this property for not only a relaxing vacation but also any special events.

Real 5 star hotel , great staff , high quality food . The hotel is set high up in a lovely bay and is quite large . It has a lovely beach which can be easily accessed via a funicular lift . The beach is pebbles but wooden walkways have been installed for you to walk to the sunbeds and a floating pontoon for you swim from. The sea temp was 26 degrees which was very refreshing it is definitely a place to come and unwind. A number of guests flew in by helicopter just shows the quality of the hotel. There is a small town called Plaka a 10 min walk from the hotel to browse among some small gift shops. The larger town of Elounda is a 20 min taxi ride costing 8 euros. Our room 723 was excellent with great sea views and the most comfortable king size bed I've ever slept on but shaded all day long.

This Hotel is NOT a small, intimate, boutique hotel, but is a beautiful complex with spectacular views in a great location. The Hotel is extremely well run, with exceptional staff / service, and the variety of amenities are outstanding. We had a great holiday and will definitely be back ! Every member of staff is warm, friendly, polite and keen to give customer satisfaction. I must mention the Concierge Manager, Kostos, who helped us get a great feel of Crete during our stay Quality / Selection of food at breakfast is phenomenal, and the Asia Blue restaurant was exceptional
