Insider Viewpoint

Nowadays it's rare to find a hotel in such a stunning setting with a wide variety of activities and accommodation to satisfy couples and families alike, yet the Blue Palace seems to manage this with ease. Honeymooners can hide away in a suite with its own terrace and pool, venturing out perhaps to enjoy a massage in the spa, or an evening cruise aournd the gulf aboard a privately chartered caique. Families, meanwhile, are easily accommodated in spacious villas or interconnecting rooms and the Kids Club will keep children entertained throughout the day giving parents the chance to relax and enjoy themselves too. With excellent service from the ever-helpful staff, a wide range of water sports and excursions on offer and a litany of excellent restaurants to choose from, the Blue Palace really does tick all the boxes.

Versatile and stylish accommodation in a beautiful beachside location - a great Mediterranean resort.
