Blue Sea Beach Affiliated by Melia

Blue Sea Beach is a family-friendly 5 star hotel, overlooking the majestic Bay of Malia, on the northern coast of Crete. The long and sandy Paralia Stalidas is just metres away, while nearby there’s a water sports centre, as well as hiking and horse riding opportunities.

If you go on holiday to relax there’s sunloungers both poolside and on the beach (the latter reserved for all-inclusive guests). For a rejuvenating experience visit the spa, equipped with an indoor heated pool, sauna, steam bath, Jacuzzi and shower jets. Those looking for a personal touch should book a massage or facial treatment. If you prefer to keep active, enjoy a game of table tennis or darts, alternatively opt for an individual workout in the fitness room.

The children will be well looked after thanks to the mini club, encompassing a range of activities including drawing, games and music. There’s also a kids’ pool, playground and mini disco.

The main restaurant serves buffet style meals. For dinner the chef prepares Mediterranean and Greek cuisine, infused with fresh ingredients, herbs and spices to suit everyone’s taste palates. For sleepy heads a late continental breakfast is served in Ammos, offering panoramic views over the beach. Here all-inclusive guests, staying for the whole week, can also enjoy one evening meal from the a la carte menu. All-inclusive refreshments during meals include draft beer, wine, soft drinks and still water, with filter coffee, tea and juices accompanying your first meal of the day. Other beverages may incur an additional charge.

There are three bars, which combined provide a drinks service from 10am to 1.30am (all-inclusive ends at midnight). Evening entertainment includes live music and folklore dancing.

Standard rooms offer a balcony or terrace, individually controlled air conditioning, a satellite TV with music channels, Wi-Fi, a safe deposit box, a mini fridge, tea & coffee making facilities and a hair dryer. You’ll also receive bottles of water and wine on arrival, plus a selection of tasty fruit. Family rooms offer a segregated sleeping area for the little ones. If you have a mini human, a baby cot is available on request.

Just 7km from the hotel is Malia Palace Archaeological Site, which includes the remains of a sprawling Minoan palace dating from c.1650 BC. Children and Jurassic Park lovers who want to discover something even older shouldn't miss a trip to Dinosauria Park with its collection of bones and fossils. Not to mention its life-size replicas and 3D exhibitions.

Sleep Quality







Oct 2021 | KevanandSam
Just returned from a week all inclusive at blue sea beach. Definitely not 5 stars, 4 stars at best. Location is great and hotel cleanliness and COVID measures were good. Breakfast was good however evening meal reminded me of school dinners, quality of food disappointing, although all inclusive we ate out 4 nights out of 7. Room was small and our daughters bed was a flimsy camp bed. Despite paying extra for a sea view our room (105) we could barely see the sea. Reception staff were not the most helpful and on checkout didn’t even ask if we had had a good holiday. Definitely not 5 star service and not what you expect from a 5 star hotel

First time in Crete

Positives: Nice hotel, although in no way 5 star or platinum as TUI sell it. The room was spotless and all the staff, other than reception, were very friendly. I found the food and drinks pretty good for an all inclusive. Negatives: I have never stayed at a hotel before and had to queue for a table for meals. Hard to keep the room on if you have a later flight. The pools are very small and sunbeds are reserved very early on a morning. A major downside is the mosquitos, even with a plug in at the room, smidge etc I dont think either of us had been bitten so many times on holiday. While I appreciate this is out of the hotels control it is something to be aware of.

Lovely, lazy, holiday

Hotel is in a good location, separated from the beach only by a small road. The beach opposite is very narrow and a bit scrappy. Better stretches of beach are further to the right. All beachside restaurants have sunbeds to hire for the day. The hotel has nicely kept grounds with sunbeds around a small pool and on grassed areas around the hotel. Breakfast was good with a wide choice of hot and cold. Evening meals were good but not varied enough, and repeats after 7 days. We enjoyed what we had, but towards the end of the holiday we ate out, at the Mastoras, The Greek Grill or the Sergiani Restaurants. All staff at the hotel were friendly and helpful, and everywhere was kept clean and tidy. The hotel sunbeds were getting a bit old, but serve the purpose. The main bar tables and chairs were in need of a scrub and repaint, or even replacing. The seating area could do with extending to accommodate more seats as there never seemed enough in the evenings. Evening entertainment was limited due to covid restrictions. We loved our stay here, and had a lovely, but lazy, holiday.
