We stayed for my father-in-laws 60th birthday and to do the Samaria Gorge walk and thought this would be a great base for our activities . We found the food okay but the rooms really dated and were unhappy with the dirty line around the outside of the pool it didn't seem clean. Outside the hotel needs tidying up, this... More

Stayed 2 adults and 1 child in normal double room with all inclusive in the new part of the hotel. Had a lovely terrace and astonishing view - after having complained since our first room i.e. first night didn' t have functionate air condition. Close to the beach and 20 minutes walk on the strand promenade to the harbour and... More

We had booked our Holiday to Crete through Booking.com. We stayed at this hotel for a week and we cannot fault our stay here. Room was very spacious and comfortable with a balcony overlooking the pool. Every meal was great, staff were very helpful and pleasant and the tables around the pool area made it extra special. They tried very... More

The restaurant was excellent with... More

Just returned from 7 days at the Minos at the end of October 2014. The hotel is in an excellent location just 15/20 minutes walk along the lovely sea front to the old town and 3 minutes from the beach. We didn't think the area was run down like a previous reviewer but hey everyone's entitled to an opinion (street... More

We spent two weeks at Minos from 23/09/14 until 07/10/14. As a previous reviewer said, don't be put off by the look of the hotel from the outside. Once you enter it is a great hotel. Staff from the minute you enter until you leave could not be more helpful and friendly. The room was adequate with everything you could... More

We have just returned from a week here a couple of days ago. Our first impressions of this hotel were poor after the bus stopped on the roundabout opposite the hotel, the immediate area appeared run down and the bus driver pointed out the hotel over the road and left us to it. We navigated the busy road and looked... More

My wife and I stayed here end of September for 10 days using jet 2 holidays. We paid extra fro a superior room and considered it to be well worth while and value for money. Late arrival meant we missed dinner but a large plate of sandwiches and fruit was left in our room for us. Along with water and... More

We last visited the Minos in 2012 when the staff were not very happy. This time the hotel is back to what it has always been a good friendly family hotel. We have stayed here 9 times always having a mini suite(it's worth the extra). The rooms and public areas are always spotlessly clean, the reception staff most welcoming and... More

Loved this hotel, by far one of the nicest I've stayed in. The concierge is lovely, carried our bags up to our rooms while we checked in ( 4 large suitcases could not have been easy). It's ridiculously close to the beach - literally a straight 2 minute walk from the hotel, and on the way there's a restaurant and... More
