This hotel is spread over 2 sites and has a newer wing across the road on the beach. As a family of 4 we requested interconnecting rooms and booked by booking.com. We were given large rooms on the older site but they were in the corner which meant we had a tiny window overlooking the car park. We had heard... More

A lovely place, if you stay in the right wing! The hotel consists of a main building, which is connected, by a footbridge, to their Imperial wing on the beachfront. We booked a sea view room at the Imperial wing, but got 'upgraded' to a junior suite in the main building. A nice thought, but given the distance to the... More

The Minoa Palace is an excellent hotel. The service from the hotel staff was first class and everyone was very friendly and made you feel welcome. Reception staff were excellent and never had to wait to speak to anyone. The hotel is in a great location on the edge of Platanias and right on the beach. The food was of... More

We have just spent a week at this hotel. The spa is lovely, the staff are professional and friendly, the grounds are pretty, the food is truly delicious and the rooms are clean and pretty standard. The beach isn't great, the sea was very choppy with big waves, making it hard to swim in and the beach is made of... More

This is very nice place to stay at Platanias in Crete. The hotel is very nice, the staff perfect and the food quite good. But we had a very bad surprised we have arrived. We have paid extra cost for a room with swimming pool view and we get a room very dark with a big pilar on the middle... More

Stayed at Minoa Palace for 5 Nights. It was a very clean and well run hotel. The facility was clean, the staff very pleasant and nice and I definitely felt relaxed there. I even used the spa. Got a one hour massage which was excellent. The general manager of the spa, Evi Migiaki was very professional and knew her products... More

I was really sunburned and tired. the delicate hands of Aliki really relaxed me and helped my skin to get the hydration needed. Congrats girls. Excelent job. Highly... More

The property is much larger than I expected based on the website. Our room was up high and clean. The breakfast was amazing! Lots of local choice and a beautiful view of the sea. Since the pool was overcrowded, we stayed at the beach almost every day. We had lunch and dinner most of the time at the hotel. Definitely... More
