Wonderful journey

trip advisor rating

I really appreciated the availability of the staff and particularly Anthi for having taken all our remarks in account since the first day and to fastly put us in a new room more in line with our expectations.

The room entirely renovated provided us an amazing view during all the stay and it was perfect during the sunset. The decoration was modern and well thought.

Regarding the outside equipment and area, the palace is very relaxing, clean and offers many places to chill : we particularly loved the private beach with beach restaurant/bar + sea activities and the swimming pool with panoramic view. The gardens are also very relaxing all the more in the evening. We only ate at the hotel for the breakfast which was ok. We will probably come back during next trip on Greece!


Wonderful Hotel and Overall Experience in Agio Nikolas, Crete

trip advisor rating

e booked our room directly with the hotel and got an ocean view room with a fantastic view. The staff were so attentive, right down to little details like luggage delivery, dining arrangements and calling us drivers when we chose to go into town for dinner. The pool was amazing and we had the morning breakfast buffet which was exceptional, with a great omelet bar and virtually everything else one might expect from a wonderful hotel like this. We would definitely return to this hotel again if we ever get over to Crete.

Weltklasse Hotel // Great Place to stay!!!

trip advisor rating

Me and my girlfriend had a truly wonderful stay at the hotel. Every one of the staff members were kind, supportive and just a pleasure to be around with on a professional base. The GM (Mr. Michalis) did a great job selecting his staff, usually I don’t say this but I have to mention a few of them by names since every single one of them had their knowledge and expertise damn straight! Thanks to Mr. George, Mr. Aggelos and Elena for a wonderful private dinner experience. Anthi, for the guest relation experience, as well as Manos – the best Barman(!) & Giannis the greatest Maître for the INBLU dining restaurant! All of them gave us a truly great experience. Thanks again to everyone! We will come back!!! Keep on doing the great work!
