This hotel is nice. I would say it is 4-star. But since I paid for 5-star my overall grade here is 3. The food is 5-star, and the beach is nice except all the stones. The housekeeping staff is very nice and thorough, they even arranged our daughters cuddly toys every morning. Most of the staff is very friendly, but... More

Am a regular customer with my family for the last six years. The hotel has excellent location, walking distance to Platanias where you can find many restaurants, bars and shops. The staff is very friendly and well trained. Very good professionals. Good facilities and the best food in Chania. Yiannis, the chef, is top, like the rest of the guys... More

What more can we say? We've just returned from a week holiday at the Minoa Palace Resort & Spa fully relaxed and nicely recharged. As previous reviewers have stated the staff are very welcoming and friendly, the food good and plentiful, and the atmosphere just right. One added note for those celiacs out there - the resort can cater for... More

Great hotel with fantastic facilities. Not far from chania town. Lovely pool and food was to a very high standard, even had free mini bottles of wine in the room (which they replaced each day). The hotel is a bit of a quiet oasis, but if you want lively the road the hotel is on leads to chania and has... More

We had a family half board holiday here this July and the entire family was most impressed about the friendly service, good food and excellent pools. The new part of the hotel is on the sea side and you can choose the pool or sandy beach next to it for swimming and sun. The resort has many pools so they... More

We had a memorable holiday with our family in this beautiful hotel. We would like to thank especially Sophia for all her kindness and really good service she has given us. She made it happen that we were upgraded to a gorgeous bungalow suite with private pool with a beautiful garden, mountain view and the large swimming pools. Personnel are... More

Everything was wonderful. Good-sized room - every room had spacious balcony - every room had some sort of nice view. We were at the back so it was quiet with view of trees & mountains. Hotel is beautifully landscaped and immaculately kept - palm trees plus other trees to offer shade, lovely calla lillies & other flowers with not a... More

Minoa Palace is an excellent example of the Greek hospitality and Cretan food. Very clean, with beautiful gardens, several swimming pools and a well organised beach. At side, there is also an organic garden with seasonal vegetables that are used by the talented chef Yannis Tsivourakis. What makes a difference is the true politeness of the personnel and the professional... More
