At the TUI BLUE Palazzo del Mare on the Greek island of Kos, good food, a swim-up pool and lots of sea await you! But not only that: The adults-only hotel offers the opportunity to simply let your soul dangle and relax. And the chance to learn more about Greek culture and the island.
I myself worked at the TUI BLUE Palazzo del Mare last year and would like to give you a little tour of the hotel here and reveal one or two tips in advance.

Where is the TUI BLUE Palazzo del Mare located?
The Palazzo del Mare is located in the northwest of the island of Kos in Marmari and impresses with an over 160 metre long pool and direct access to the beach. The hotel offers the perfect balance for sports enthusiasts and relaxation lovers and is adults only.
Best of Kos with the tips of the BLUE Guides at the TUI BLUE Palazzo del Mare
Welcome or Kalimera as they say, when you enter the hotel lobby and reception does everything to give you a pleasant start. Because now your holiday begins!
Right next to reception, someone in a blue uniform is already smiling at you. Because one of our BLUE Guides is sitting there, whom you can contact if there are any difficulties or especially if you want to go on a trip. Whether you want to learn more about the most beautiful places on Kos, or take a boat tour to the surrounding islands, explore the island on your own in a jeep or drive over to Turkey for a day. The guides have the perfect excursion for everyone. My tip is definitely to visit Kos Town and stroll through the narrow alleyways of the port town.
Food at the TUI BLUE Palazzo del Mare: Greek and much more
Especially after a long journey you are probably quite hungry? Then it’s good that the way from reception to the main restaurant is not far. The hotel offers a varied buffet in the restaurant in the mornings and evenings. From regional specialities to international dishes, everything is there. There are changing theme evenings such as the Gala Dinner, Sunset Dinner, Seafood Dinner or Local Dinner. On these evenings, cooking is tailored to the theme and at the Local Dinner, for example, you can look forward to typical Greek specialities. My favourite there is of course gyros with tzatziki! The hotel focuses on using fruit and vegetables from its own cultivation.
Another restaurant is located below the large pool on the way to the sea. At Culinarium you can treat yourself to culinary delights at lunchtime and enjoy an à la carte menu in the evening. This will be a highlight of your holiday as you will get to know the local specialities in a very special way.
Bars at the TUI BLUE Palazzo del Mare: Maybe you need a refreshment first?
How about a cocktail at the bar? You have two options right away. Either go straight from the main restaurant down the hall and you will end up at the main bar. Here you can enjoy beautiful sunsets and later in the evening fascinating shows. Usually it is external artists who come from the island to share their passion with you.
But if you’ve just wandered along the pool, then I recommend the pool bar. I like to drink a Greek frappe or a new creation by the bartender there. How about an ouzo cocktail, for example?
If that’s still not enough cooling off for you, just jump in the pool! I’ve never seen such a large pool where you can swim a few laps!
You also have the opportunity to always have the pool within reach in a swim-up room, or if you’d rather have a pool to yourself, a private pool, that’s of course possible. You can even book a room with a whirlpool.
Or would you like a bit of sport on holiday at the TUI BLUE Palazzo del Mare?
On the fitness platform you have the chance to take part in numerous sports courses while never losing sight of the sea. You can simply book the course that suits you via the BLUE App or just grab a yoga mat and do your own thing.
Or you might just jump straight from your swim-up room into the pool and become part of the morning water aerobics. The pool invites you to sign up for more sports courses. How about yoga or pilates on the water? You’re probably wondering now how that’s supposed to work, but at the Palazzo del Mare there is the possibility to test your balance on mats that are built similar to stand-up paddleboards and at the same time do fitness exercises. I guarantee you such a sports course is unique! If you need a break at any point, the cooling off in the pool is just right.
Maybe you also feel like a game of beach volleyball on the beach right in front of the hotel? All in all, the hotel offers a varied sports programme. There is something for everyone!
Relaxation at the TUI BLUE Palazzo del Mare
Simply switch off, book a massage at the BLUE Spa or relax in the sauna. Who can say they have enjoyed a massage overlooking the sea? That just sounds like relaxation!
If you need more variety, the entertainment programme also always provides good suggestions to open yourself up to the country and culture. For example, you can simply get cooked for at a cookery course and look over the chef’s shoulder. Then you’ll always have a good recipe if you want to reminisce about your holiday at the Palazzo del Mare.
