This resort is absolutely lovely, and we had a lovely stay there last year. You can't really go wrong staying at a 5 star resort in Crete, with it's own private beach, sun beds with table service...I mean, it really is paradise. However there are a few things that could deter some travellers: - it is a huge resort, like...

This hotel is incredible and we cannot wait to get back. I am an SPG Platinum guest so my wife and I were upgraded to a corner suite with a private pool (I think all rooms have them), which went from our main room to the guestroom. Elounda and Crete were fantastic, and this setting was unreal. Basically the rooms...

TA hotel rankings for Elounda rate the Acquila Elounda Village Hotel higher than the Blue Palace. This is absurd and far from the truth. I ended up staying at both because the BP was closing for the winter in late Oct. As an SPG member I was given a complimentary upgrade to a suite with a private pool at the...

I stayed here for a week with my husband and two children (9 and 12 years old) last July and we had a lovely holiday. We were looking for a week of relaxation and sun and this did not disappoint. We were in a junior suite up at the top of the hotel on a corner, which was nice and...

We stayed in a suite with a private endless pool. The design is luxurious and yet very clean and modest - greek style. The food was good but a bit expensive , and no need to go the Chinese restaurant ... The spa is a league of its own ! The service was great , and the resort is very...

We stayed at the blue palace for a week in September. We upgraded to a private pool suite and at350 euros extra for the week was worth every penny!

I was on a trip to Europe for a few weeks with two of my buddies. We're all 30 and single. We were a lil hesitant because it seems like more of a honeymoon spot but we gave it a shot anyway. We're not young party animals anymore and we wanted to stay at least one fancy resort during our...

Fantastic variety of restaurants in combination with helpful personnel. The frendliest Lady walked us to our room, which was spacious, isolated and with a stunning view!
