If you're SPG Platinum and thinking of staying at the Blue Palace expecting some premium treatment, think again. It seems like you will be treated much better if your tour operator has a good relationship with the hotel, rather than if you have top-tier status with the chain they are supposedly a part of.

We stayed at the Blue Palace for the first 5 days of our honeymoon in August 2016. We stayed in a Superior Bungalow with private pool. I unfortunately cannot remember the name of the specific one we were in, but it was on the south end of the resort and was only "attached" to one other private pool separated by...

The Blue Palace Resort & Spa is an absolutely amazing property... but my wife and I didn't arrive until late at night so we really didn't get to see the resort until we woke up and opened our sliding door the next morning... the views of the turquoise blue Mediterranean and the Gulf of Elounda were unbelievable.

We did not have the best experience at The Blue Palace. It started with a disappointing excursion to Knossos and lunch that was set up by the hotel. It fell well short of expectations and no thought was put into it while arranging it. Not to mention it cost a fortune (470 euro). To put it in perspective, it would...
