Minoa Palace is a nicely decorated hotel with an extremely friendly, service-oriented staff. Hotel rooms are nice but our "garden or mountain view room" actually overlooked the parking lot...And the balcony got no sun whatsover at any time of the day. I guess we got the worst rooms in the complex because we were participating in a conference that was... More

We stayed at Minoa Palace for 10 nights in May 2015 (booked through Thomson/TUI). Upon arrival we were upgraded and everything about this hotel, its' staff and facilities are without doubt 5*. The rooms were fantastic and the bed was so comfy! Mini-bar in the room, at reasonable hotel prices, along with complimentary bottle of water, bottle of wine and... More

Good location for exploring Chania and the West coast. Cannot fault hotel or service. Wish I wrote this review sooner as I cannot find my photos. Only point to add is the double bed was two zipped together which wasn't the most comfortable, but they were very eager to address.

The Minoa Palace lives up to its Trip Advisor rating of #1. We’ve stayed in many top quality hotels in Tunisia, Crete, Canaries and Madeira and can say that this ranks highest as a holiday hotel for many reasons. We had Room 329 on the top floor (3 storey buildings) at the rear of the hotel with stunning views of... More

By spending 7 days at Minoa, we had a pleasant stay what the hotel facilities concern. Nice room, garden with lots of flowers, lovely breakfast tables with various choices. The staff was quite polite and service minded from the minute we entered the reseption to the farewell day. However, it felt silly and surprisingly to pay 10 Euro to spend... More

A really thoughtfully designed resort hotel, with very attractive features and a beautiful outdoor terraced dining area. A unique walkway links the original buildings to the newer rooms and gardens on the beach side. We stayed in April/May so were able to take advantage of the calm before what I'm sure will be the summer rush although there are ample... More

Had the pleasure staying at this wonderful hotel for 4 days and opted for a Imperial double Private Pool Room which we did not regret.. The private pool was however not heated why we did make much use of it but a great feature for sure !! Everything spotless at this resort and can highly recommend it... Fantastic breakfast incl...
