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

I have visited this hotel with my family to take advantage of the tavern they have as well as to use the magnificent beach. .. the beach is great full of clear sand and the tavern has a great sense of taste! ! Only delicious options ! Congratulations to yianis from the tavern for his polite attitude!

The bedrooms are only ok, I guess some people care more than others. Mine was clean and it is what mattered. However the pool and the beach are superb...oh wait! the beach is there naturally and has nothing to do with the hotel! Of course the bar at the pool is overpriced but I was glad to pay over 3€...

I was expecting more from a 4 star hotel! Dirty and outdated room. 2 sockets only, fridge works only when you put the key in, shower mixer was terrible (incredibly difficult when you have to bath a 2 year old little one).. As for the the view...a spot of sea and a concrete building facing our balcony....no wi Fi on... More

Our floor looked like it had not seen a Hoover in a couple of weeks, the free Wi-Fi didn't reach the second floor, our balcony view was of concrete wall. We went for a snack with our two year old son at 17:10 to be told all snacks stopped at 17:00 and the local restaurants were very poor, on returning... More

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
