We loved our week at the Minos Palace. The location is amazing, we had a stunning view from our room out across the sea to some of the islands. We went on various trips, and none of the other hotels we saw (in Elounda for example) seemed to come close to the Minos Palace in terms of setting. Especially loved... More

Sensimar Minos Palace- what a little gem! The hotel is set in an absolutely stunning location, on a peninsular, located high up with panoramic views of Agios Nikolaos and surrounding area- the sea, the mountains. small islands.The views are absolutely gorgeous and for peace and tranquility, this hotel is hard to beat. Although it may be fully booked, it never... More

The location of the hotel is superb for tranquility and wonderful views. But if you want do anything outside the hotel you are very limited. The walk to town is 25-30 mins (closer to 40 mins to the Lake area), with half the journey on a quite busy road, but the other half along a nice promenade. We only found... More

Stayed a week in August 2014, we had a shared pool suite which was very nice and mostly because of the pool. It´s very nice and calm, we didn´t even try the main pool area. We loved the beach, it is absolutely wonderful! About the room: It was not really a "suite", just a normal large room with access to... More

Stayed here recently for two weeks and I must say what a really nice time was had. The hotel was spacious, quiet and plenty of room just to wander about outside and enjoy the sea views.All the staff were pleasant and the food was excellent, plenty of choice for all tastes. Of course, when in another country one should go... More

Stayed here in July, nice low level hotel with a salt water pool. Area around the pool was kept clear, sun beds were scattered around the area with fixed parasols. Hotel was set on a hill meaning a short, downhill walk to the beach area, this might be a problem for people with walking difficulties. Despite regular notes from the... More

Spent 4 night at the Minos Palace and really enjoyed it. Even though the room was probably the cheapest it was minimal but with noticeable touches of style; maybe the "sea view" could have been better but again it was certainly the cheapest room around. The location is really spectacular and the hotel is kept quite well. Breakfast and dinner... More
