This was our second time in this hotel and definitely not the last. We had absolutely wonderful and memorable week. There's nothing I don't like in Minoa Palace. It's perfect for couples, families and elderly as there's something for everyone. Cleanliness is top class as well as food and service. The garden area is beautiful and peaceful. There's even a...

1 week is not enough to enjoy this hotel, its easier to come up with some faults. the extending clothes line in the bathroom didnt extend and the floor tiles in the bathroom didnt geometrically line up with those in the room........thats it, this place is more or less perfect. There is however one small issue my wife and daughter... More

We we're here June 2015,and booked a bungalow with a private pool,they upgraded us when we arrived to one of their best rooms,it was amazing!The service was great,and rooms are cleaned regularly,i highly recommend this resort! The area(Platanias) itself is boring at night,restaraunts everywhere serving the same dishes,no real pubs or entertainment anywhere,so every night was an early night.

Two ladies, now in their 70's, spent 10 nights recently in this fantastic hotel. Everything was perfect for us but for the lack of entertainment and what little entertainment there was finished by 10.30 p.m. We never did hear the piano played nor did we experience the Greek dancing as it was "rained off". If you want a quiet and... More

This place is amazing. We had started our trip at The Blue Palace in Elounda, but ended it here. This place is truly worthy of a 5 star rating. I do have to add a caveat that we were really lucky for some reason and upgraded to the Executive Suite for our stay. So my room experience is divine, and... More

We found this hotel via internet so were unsure....what a fabulous find! It is large, but never feels crowded. The breakfast and dinner buffets were among the best in Europe. No need to venture into Chania for dinner. Families and newly weds and longtime marrieds all seemed to be having a wonderful time. The staff was superb and accommodated every... More

This was our second visit to the hotel, but certainly not our last. We already knew what the hotel was all about due to our last visit, and I must say, they certainly do not disappoint. Everything was once again perfect. We were upgraded to a family suite with 2 bedrooms which was absolutely great. There was lots of space,... More

I was taken to the Minoa palace for my anniversary by my husband! I can't say enough how fantastic it was! We upgraded to all inclusive as the food was all delicious, best cocktails included also! The staff were all friendly and couldn't be more helpful with whatever we asked! Customer relations team really made our stay special, my husband... More

Four Ladies visited this hotel 19th May for one week (men away in Turkey golfing). A restful week was what we were wishing and that was what we got. On arrival we were given a voucher for a fifteen minute free massage in the spar which was a nice surprise. We did take up our free sessions but did not... More
