We stayed at this hotel with my family in August 2013 and I must say it was one of the most relaxing and blissful holidays I've had. The location is brilliant as Platanias is just at your steps and if you want to explore a bit further, amazing Chania with its stony streets and old cafes are just a quick... More

This was a great hotel and one I will definitely go back to ASAP. We stayed there for 8 days in June 2013 which is just before the rush season so not too many people about (although the hotel was full). We stayed in beach part and I would stay in same part next time as you are right on... More

Everything about the resort is excellent! Although do take plenty of euros for drinks in the hotel, there is plenty of mini-markets 100m down the road. Chania definately worth a visit for a change of sceneary if you like to get out and about.

We've had two excellent stays in late October at the Minoa Palace. Both very positive all round. The food choice and quality is excellent. Staff all helpful and friendly. Slight disappointment that teenage son not allowed to use indoor pool, although no adults using it most of the time. Overall would definitely return again and again.

This was our first visit to Crete and the Minoa Resort was a last minute booking for a late getaway - how lucky were we to find ourselves in this wonderful hotel. We were accommodated in the newer part which was on the beach. The weather was superb for the second week in October ( the previous week was cool... More

Spent 10 nights at the Minoa Palace. It was the end of season and the first week the hotel was 100% full but never seemed overcrowded. The hotel is divided into 2 parts with a main road in between. (A bridge over the road joins the two parts). Around the Pools- There are an extensive amount of pools which are... More
