This place is perfect for relaxation, not far from the airport, no additional busdriving, close to shops, beautiful beach, and good food. The poolbar service is a great advantage and also the use of umbrellas and sun loungers is for free! Next year this place again!

I arrived after 11 pm , reception was warm , welcoming and an effort to inform me of the amenities I could look forward to the next morning. The room was clean but average in size and comfort. Wifi was quite good and... More

The Minoa Palace unfortunately needs a thorough update internally. Its location near the sea was good as was the pleasant pool area. The best thing was the Spa, where treatments were given within earshot of the waves in a curtained gazebo. Lovely products were used and the staff were most efficient and pleasant. Proximity to the airport good though there... More

We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights.. We had a room with a balcony overlooking the infinity pool and beach. Both the beach and pool were very nice. There is also a good sized kiddie pool. We only had breakfast included in our package and it was fine. The room was clean and okay sized. Bathroom was fine with... More
