Hotel looks nice, but it definitely is not 4* hotel. Rooms are 80-90's style, one day we also have a cockroach here. Rooms has only 2sockets, so charging of mobile devices is hard, because there is a fridge in one of them. Food is ok, but we expected some fresh fishes, seafood or traditional lamb meat. Every day, the food... More

AKS Minoa Palace is a nice, comfortable hotel located directly on the sandy beach with wonderful staff. My mum and I stayed there for a week at the end of May/ beginning of June. Our room was quiet with side sea view and beautiful sunrise every morning. We had an amazing stay there. Poolside facilities there are excellent overlooking the... More

When you fly into Heraklion, sit on the left hand side of the plane, in a window seat, and just before landing, look out of the window. If you see a golden sandy beach with 3 rows of yellow umbrellas and blue sun loungers, then you are looking at the AKS Minoa Palace Hotel. Yes, it really is that close... More

Stayed just one night on our way to the south of the island. Even though we booked this through Booking.com at what we thought was a bargain price, we anticipated a bargain room, not so. When we arrived at about 11 pm we were greeted by the very friendly reception staff, one of whom told us we were getting his... More

My mum and I stayed there for a week in July and we had an amazing stay! Our room was huge and it was on the front of the hotel so we had a great view on the sea and the pool area. The buffet at the restaurant had plenty of choices, and a special mention goes to the desserts,... More

I normally give good reviews for places we stay. Can't do that this time, and to be fair, it may have been that it just wasn't designed for American expectations. Booked this hotel for a 3 day stay in Crete as part of a family vacation. The good- relatively nice lobby, staff ok, beach area had adequate chairs and was... More

This is a terrific hotel just a few minutes drive from the airport. Friendly staff. Great pool overlooking the beach. They do a terrific Greek night show by the pool area. The food is very good and the half board dinner includes drinks which is a nice surprise. Would definitely stay again. I do have a suggestion if management reads... More

I stayed to AKS Minoa Palace for two days with my parents. It's a wonderful, clean, comfortable hotel with helpfful and welcoming staff. The location of the hotel is beautiful as Karteros is a quiet place and it's near the see.
