We as a family stayed at this hotel two years ago in 2013 and loved every minute so we came back this year. It didn't start off well though as we were given a room over the bins and generator which were smelly and noisy. Our hotel dealt with our complaint and moved us to another room immediately. We advised... More

Spent last week in August at Minoa Palace with husband & two grown up children. Loved it from the moment I walked into reception, very stylish reception area. Offered a nice cold glass of orange juice on arrival whilst our cases were taken to our rooms(613 & 614)Stayed in a garden view room, lovely and quiet. Large room, very comfortable... More

This is a lovely hotel with two equally lovely parts to it connected by a bridge over the road. We had a room overlooking beautiful gardens with our own little pool (which was actually a very generous size).The view across to the mountains was stunning. Across the road was the 'beach side' with a huge, deep pool, perfect for some... More

6 of us stayed here in August this year for our summer holiday, we were two families with children. Upon arrival I was a little concerned as it did not look as expected when we pulled up in the coach, but upon entering the hotel I realised that in actual fact it was what I expected. We had two mountain... More

When I arrived at the hotel I was a little upset. From outside it did not seem what I expected. The hotel is split in two parts by the coast road and the area did not seem enough green to my eyes. My bad mood disappeared 30 seconds after the check in started. Staff is so professional and efficient that... More

We stayed mid August when the hotel was full, but it didn't feel like that, there were plenty of sunbeds and sunshades at the pools and beach, plenty of space in the restaurants. The food was very good and we enjoyed both of the restaurants available to us as half board. The staff were all very courteous and helpful, It... More

I thought the Hotel was good, but not a 5 star experience. The food was definitely not good enough to be classed as 5 star. We paid for half board, but was so fed up with the food at the Hotel that we ate out in Chania two nights out of the week for something a bit different, and also... More

We stayed here at the beginning of August and had a fantastic holiday... The hotel was full but never felt crowded . Sun beds were always available around the pool thanks to the no reserving of sun beds policy. The restaurants were great ... We mainly stuck to the main buffet restaurant which had a great choice of food ...... More

Working in the travel industry as a travel agent, I get to deal with many clients and hotels on a daily basis. I have seen some very beautiful properties, and this is one that I will definitely recommend. The title says it all. We spent 9 days in the heart of the summer at this resort, and I cannot think...

Just returned from our fifth time at Mino. Once again excellent service throughout the whole day-nothing is too much trouble. Food is always excellent with a huge variety of world cuisine both at breakfast and dinner. We were half-board and didn't need lunch, but if we needed to eat at lunch then the waiters by the pool will bring you... More
