Stayed here for a week in mid-July with my wife. Had a room with see view in the main building, near the pool garden. The staff was almost overwhelmingly nice, the food was varied and plenty (we had half board), the room was quiet big and comfy, the AC very effective, the pool really great. The few drawbacks were the... More

We stayed for 4 nights in July 2014. I made reservations in April. We were promised a 4 bedroom family room, since it was my wife and 2 young children. Cost was 150 euros a night which included breakfast and dinner. When we arrived, we did have a large room, with 4 single beds in a sort of galley long... More

Me and my partner (both 21) have just returned from a 2 week stay at King Minos Palace. Upon arrival we were greeted by a lady from reception and a 'bell-boy' who carried our luggage up the steps at the front of the hotel. Another lady working on reception checked us in and told us all relevant information regarding breakfast... More

My partner and I, (both early twenties) have not long returned from a 2 week stay here at the King Minos. We booked here due to a good price and the other overtly positive reviews. However to concur with a previous recent review we also felt that these other reviews over hype the hotel slightly and therefore our impressions were... More

We stayed at the King Minos Palace for the first time and we really would have to look hard to find fault with the place. The room was very tidy and was cleaned to a high standard every day. The sink plug would not close and was repaired instantly when reported. The bathroom was immaculate throughout and well stocked with... More

We feel that euphoric reviews given to this hotel on tripadvisor give a misleading representation. Therefore, we would like to focus on the criticism as there has been enough said about the positive, but nothing mentioned about the negative. Room: Didn’t feel like a 4 star hotel room. It lacks basic facilities, that we got used to staying in other... More

We stayed here from 8-22nd May. The first week was much quieter than the second. We arrived very late evening & were greeted at reception and checked in quickly. We struggled to carry our cases up the steps to the hotel (see previous review) although were helped down with them when departing. We went for the half board basis as... More
