We spent 3 nights at the hotel. The place is beautiful, spacious, and very inviting. The staff were very helpful and kind, all speak good English. The rooms were large, comfortable, in very good condition. The breakfast is excellent - very rich and tasty. The pool was quite cold (October), and the beach is easily accessible and inviting but not...

We stayed here for 2 weeks from 29 July to 12 August. Our wedding at Minoa Palace was on the 5th August. From the start of organisation with our own planners and with Minoa's Rita, everything ran so smoothly. Your staff were extremely professional, caring and so lovely. Everyone knew us by our first names. Your reception staff are truly...

The hotel is brilliant. The food is perfect but the breakfast is the best I have ever eat. There are too many sunbeds to enjoy the pool and the sun. We enjoy our holidays. Many thanks to all the staff!

We have just stayed 10nights at the Hotel. Overall, we have been very happy here. Reading some of the more negative reviews gave us some reservations, and yes, if you compare this 5* hotel to one in Dubai, or Hong Kong, then you may Ben disappointed. But for a Mediterranean 5*Hotel, it was very comfortable. Stayed in better, but also...

Hotel situates right in front of the beach (at least half of the hotel). If you get the room facing the sea, you will get an excellent view. They also have two buildings which provide enough rooms. There are two pools on each side, and a lot of beach front benches. However, the hotel lacks some details. For example, there...

If you need to get away, love Greece and want a 5star stay by the sea, Minoa Palace is the place. Excellent service all the way from management to housekeeping.
