Returned from blue bay earlier today and my review of this hotel is good value for money. I stayed with my partner and two daughters both 12 years old. On arrival we were allocated our room in the main hotel which has three single beds! Therefore we spent our first night all huddled up together, however the next morning we were provided another bed, not ideal when you arrive at 11pm to sort these things out, but we got over it. Fortunately we were in the main hotel block, they have other apartments further down the road, which I would have been very cross about if we had been put there as they were like the poor relation of the hotel, unfortunately this is a gamble when you book as you are allocated prior to arrival. The grounds are lovely, but the steps are quite a nightmare, but the views can be enjoyed once you have mastered the steps. The staff are truly fantastic and the food is a good Al spread, however the drinks are awful and the only alcohol available is raki, beer, wine or ouzo all of which taste terrible. So we bought our own and so did many other people, much to our dismay. The entertainment was not great and I wouldn't want my kids to have been any younger or they would have been very bored, thank god for wifi, even though it was very slow. The Hotel was very clean and the pools are nice, it does attract aome quite loud holiday makers, so don't expect everyone to be as you might like to find. I can honesty say we had a great time, but they could make improvements to drinks and entertainment. I would go back but I would make sure I was in the main hotel. Summary, nice hotel, good location poor choice of drinks.

We stayed in the annex part of the hotel up a steep hill, so not advised for the unfit/immobile, which had its own separate pool. This was lovely if you want to get away from the noise of the main pools in the hotel. The room was quite small and basic with a tiny shower but adequate for a couple. The food at the hotel was poor; serving the same food everyday expect for a change in the meat served. Probably what you would expect from all inclusive. Breakfast was probably the best meal. We found the tavernas by the beach which was lucky because we were starving by day 4. There was no entertainment that we saw except for the Greek night which we had to pay 19€ for and frankly it was the same food as the buffet in the restaurant except with shellfish and a bbq. Our flight wasn't until late on our last day and they could only provide us with a room for an extra 2 hours and took our bands off us and said we had to pay for drinks and dinner (20€ each!). They did let us use the showers in the spa for free before we left though. Towels for the pool are 2€ per day, so I would suggest taking your own. Needless to say we did have a lovely time at Blue Bay and the views are amazing and the staff were very friendly. We would stay here again but not all inclusive and we would probably hire a car as there's not much to do in the area.

We stayed at the Blue Bay at the beginning of August. Our room was in the annex which had its own pool and bar. Our room was really clean and comfortable and the bedding and towels were changed daily. Pool area was beautiful and always clean. I have to say that the staff at the bar in the annex were amazing. Both Tali and Grigoria were so friendly and always happy to help. They are an asset to the hotel.

We have just returned from a 7 night stay in Blue Bay, our room was not in the main hotel but in the annex across the road, the room although basic was ground floor and a good size for 2 adults and one child. The bathroom was adequate but in need of an update. Beds were comfy and storage was enough for our needs. The room was cleaned every day by the same very hardworking housekeeper who did her best to keep standards high, the only thing I noticed were the towels, they were replenished daily but the hotel should purchase some new ones as they were often grubby looking, just a small detail which should be noted for a 4 star hotel. Views from the room were amazing and we particularly liked the pool area in the annex. We planned a quiet relaxing break and got just that, we had the pool to ourselves most days with the occasional visit from another family and a few couples. The main pools at the hotel were very busy all day with entertainment etc but our little haven across the road was a welcome break from the manic main pool. Food was fine, we had dinner in the hotel on our first night and choose to have breakfast and lunch in the hotel every day. At night we visited the many taverns in Agia Pelagia, too good to miss, the service was excellent and food in all restaurants delicious!! Blue Bay food was what you would expect AI, breakfast was nice with fresh panackes and crepes cooked to order, the greek yoghurt and fruit was delicious also. There was a good selection at lunch too. The dining area was very busy at all times and very hot! Staff worked hard and were pleasant. Our son went to kids club a few times, there was only a few kids attended so they got one to one attention from Maria which he enjoyed. I'm not sure I would rate the hotel overall a 4 star, more like a good 3 star, we have stayed 5 star in Crete in the past and the difference is significantly noticeable. Another point to note to anyone planning to book is the location, it's built on a very steep hill and there are many steps to and from the pool area into the hotel so it is in no way suitable for anyone with mobility issues of any kind. We explored the local area and it's beaches(water shoes needed), and also took the public bus to Heraklion, very cheap and worth the visit.
