- Hotel: we slept in the annexe (2 rooms with a sea view) but very close to the main building, few steps up, hotel is not big but also not that small, walking distance to all buildings, - Location: in the middle of nowhere ;) if you want to rest it is a perfect place but if you expect parties & bar street you should choose another one, we were in Heraklion by local bus (3,50 EUR per person) - 40 minutes will take you to the centre - Staff is extremally friendly and helpful (animator, lifeguard, barman, reception team, cleaning staff, waiter team - all of them: great job!! ). Manager (lady) from the hotel looked stressfull for no reason. - Restaurant: food is very good and tasty, every day something different, as a vegetarian I easily found a lot of vegetables and non-meat dishes, kids were also happy with the pancakes, fruits, ice-cream, etc. you can also try local dishes there - Pool: 3 clean pool next to the main building is that what we needed. there were also animations and open pool bar with snacks and drinks - Beach: is very close, 200m next to the hotel (you can walk or use shuttle bus), sunbeds are payable so won't be so late because there are limited of them, it is better to use swimming shoes, there are shops and few tavernas, - what to do: at this hotel you will not be bored! all day animations - for kids (mini club, mini disco) and for adults (night show, pool games, aqua aerobic, etc), mini golf, tennis court, football pitch, swimming pools (also for small kids), music, good food all day (we had all inclusive version), beach, and probably much more - what could be better: there were no DJ in the hotel - all animations finishes before 11pm. - remember to buy a mask, it is obligatory to wear it in the common area- restaurants, hall It was very nice holiday and we highly recommend to families with kids

Hotel's Favourite
We stayed at the end of September-mid October. What can I say about this hotel? The food is great and have so much choice! Good entertainment in the evenings, absolutely loved the ‘Greek night’. The staff are brilliant! Really friendly, helpful and caring. Bar staff always served with a smile and made you feel so welcomed! Thank you George and Dimitri! The animation team are excellent! Every day arranging activities at the hotel; darts competition, water aerobics, volleyball, mystery cocktail ect. Very enthusiastic! Thank you again Maria and the other lady (didn’t get her name before we left). And thank you Dimos (sorry I hope I’ve spelt it right!) the guest relations manager; saw him every day during our stay, welcoming us to the dining room and informed us on the way out the evenings entertainment. Such a friendly gentleman! The all inclusive drink selection is very good as you have white wine, red wine, rose, beer, ouzo, sangria, raki cocktails (we love raki!) and soft drinks. The selection of cocktails off the all in menu were fantastic, made to perfection! Roughly cost €6.50-€7 and were so worth it! You could get drinks from the pool or from the bar near reception. Plenty of choice of where to sit and chill. The location is very good with being close to 3 beaches, shops, mini markets and supermarkets (be prepared though for the steep hill leading to the beach and shops down the road! But does make a good workout!), the hotel has its own little shop, Agia Pelagia only 15-20 minute walk (lovely village), two car hires with one being across the road from the hotel, the quad biking safari is a 2 minute walk (recommend) and boat hires 5-10 minute walk (also recommend). A bus is available outside the hotel to go to Heraklion and other destinations for good prices (Heraklion return €7.60 each). We had an issue with our shower that we mentioned on a survey, by the next morning they fixed it! They take what you say seriously and sort it. Our room was lovely and had a beautiful view. Had a bell boy take us to our room when we arrived and pick us up to bring us to reception, as we were in the annex. We phoned up reception and within minutes was at our door to collect us. Overall we love this hotel and would happily stay again! Can’t wait for our next trip! Recommend to anyone!

The hotel and staff are really nice. The food and fitness possibilities are great and we had a lot of fun. It is close to two beautiful beaches and on top of a hill, so that you have an amazing view over the sea. Aqua fitness and dancing is amazing with Timi as she always will put you in a great mood for the day. We had a lot of fun with her and awesome barkeeper Antonis, who will always make you laugh. This place is worth a stay for active and sports loving people as well as for somebody who wants to enjoy a relaxing vacation in an always sunny and beautiful place!

Late one afternoon in July I only needed a place to rest after having driven throughout the island of Crete. I pulled off the main road at the Agia Pelagia exit and found this beautiful property nestled in the hills, overlooking the beautiful Mediterranean from all angles. The lobby is decorated beautifully with Minoan Sculputres (replicas to be sure) - hundreds of pieces. I was alone but the place was filled with young and old couples and families with children of all ages enjoying this beautiful setting. Every staff member provided incredible service and went out of their way to greet me and ask how they could serve me. Kudos to management for operating such a wonderful property. I’ve been throughout Greece many many times and this is by far the best service anywhere in the country. Take advantage of the all inclusive rates which include amazing Greek foods, deserts and wine, ala carte!

It was such an amazing vacation we had. The food is amazing, everyone is so friendly and welcoming! You can ask anyone for help and they will guide you. The animators were truly amazing (Timi and Monica). They do such a hard work, they are very amiable, warm, they are smiling everytime we see them. The dances and the morning workout in the pool are really good. They are one of the most amazing animators I ever met in my experience and, sadly, I think they are unnepreciated by the management. I trully recommend going there for a warm and fun vacation!

Dear godam544, “Kalispera” – Good day from Blue Bay Resot Hotel! We are delighted to note that you spent an amazing vacation with us. Our kitchen brigade really tries to always maintain a high quality of the food offered. The hospitality is especially in the nature of the Cretans and for the Blue Bay team it is not a must, but because of genuine nature that we share it with our guests. Of course, our entire team is very valued and is in a familiar environment. However, the two animators are new and are still a bit shy, but that will surely settle down over the course of the season and become everyday life within the team, which is warm-hearted and funny wherever possible. Once again our heartfelt thanks for taking the time and making the effort to publicly share your holiday experiences with us and others here. Really appreciated. We hope to see you again in the future, whenever you come back to Crete. Faithfully yours, Guest Relation Blue Bay Resort Hotel
