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.

AKS Minoa Palace is a wonderful, clean, comfortable hotel with wonderful staff. Poolside facilities are excellent and the hotel has its own area of beachfront on a golden, sandy beach, with sunbeds and parasols. Our room was in the older part of the hotel, with a sea view only partially obscured by walls from the new extensions jutting out on... More

This hotel is located just a few km from the Heraklion airport, so it's quite convenient if you have a late arrival or early departure. Staff was friendly and welcoming. Rooms were good-sized but a bit cold (we were there in April). Buffet breakfast was excellent, with a wide variety of local specialties. Easy parking. Beach was clean and the... More

For sure the rooms deserve some renovation, as some pieces of furniture seem to date back to the 80's. And the location is a bit secluded (about 10km from downtown Heraklion). But these are about the only two weak points worth being reported. For the rest, we really enjoyed our week in this hotel : very good buffet with a... More

Had to make a last minute rebooking and decided on this just based on availability so I wasn't expecting much. We arrived to find a typical resort style hotel with a very nice pool. Rooms were wee a bit on the small side but certainly adequate. WiFI, and important measure for me worked better than at any other hotel I've... More

We booked a last minute holiday via Thomson holidays website to the Minoa Palace Hotel- we were extremely pleased .and very surprised at previous critical reviews. We travelled with our 2 children aged 10 and 9 and were more than pleased with the family room we were given. The air con worked fine, the room was more than adequate to... More
