​I visited Minoa Palace in July for 10 days with my sister and both of us agree it was the most amazing holiday experience in Greece we have every had. The Minoa Palace staff were all such lovely people and took great care of us on our 10 day holiday. There is such a wonderful family atmosphere (staff and guests!)... More

We stayed here for 2 weeks in October, 2014, just before the hotel closed for the season. The first impression of the reception area was that it was smart, and clean, though `OK` rather having the 'wow' factor seen in so many new hotels. We had a similar reaction to our room, (in the original building), though it was quite... More

This was our second stay at the Minoa Palace - we also came here in October 2012 - and both holidays here were excellent. The gardens are absolutely beautiful, the staff are so helpful and friendly, the whole place is really clean and the reception area is simply stunning. We had room 228 in the main building which faced the... More

The hotel is fairly new (no outdated decor etc) and very clean. Sandy beach with bar service,towels,changing room etc. (You would find some pebble stones by the water or in the shallow, but going deeper seabed is sandy).Swimming pools are a bit chilly. Entertainment is not a strong side of this hotel, Greek nights are really poor, even though you... More

Hotel is rated five star (*****) and it's totally worth it. I could say that it is one of the best hotels in the area. Hotel is made with good taste to the people that have money to spent to luxury. Beach is next to hotel. Crossing between two hotel buildings is done over the road so no need to... More

This is place with great gardens and in general outside areas!! The architecture is nice and the connection to the beach is quite easy over the bridge that passes a very busy road!! However, I should admit that the hexagonal room type I had, did not left me the best impression!!

All round great trip - the hotel is pricy but worth it due to the great rooms, good food and luxury touches. The staff are very friendly and would bring free grapes to you while sunbathing on the beach. Drinks are very expensive by the pool but worth it if you can lay down and have someone bring them to...

This is the second time we 've stayed here and we brought our son and girlfriend this time. I have no complaints whatsoever. My son had a mountain view room and they were delighted with this. Our room in the Imperial room was lovely. The food, service, cleanliness was excellent. The room was comfortable and had all we needed. Shame... More
