Service was incredible. All staff were incredibly positive and attentive to the guests needs and enquires. Another area of the resort that was incredible was the food. I stayed as a half board but this was not an issue due to the fact the vast range of the breakfast buffet meant I wasn't hungry until the evening! Anything you fancy... More

Our family visited this hotel (every year we go at least on one holiday trip to an all in resort) and it was fantastic. Very clean and beautiful hotel area and room. Super friendly staff. Superb restaurants. Al the drinks are the real stuff, no 'locals' brands. Even near the pool is a waitress to bring your order... Top-class!!

We stayed last summer at this hotel. We had a splendid holiday. Rooms, food and service were great. We upgraded to all inclusive while staying at the hotel. This was a fantastic deal. We were lucky to experience small turtles on the beach one morning.

My wife and I were in the Minoa Palace one night, on 8/30/2015. I believe we were in room 718, which has its own pool. The room was spacious, clean and with view of the beach. The private pool is a great feature. Hotel staff were very nice and helpful. Food was very good.

We visited the Resort off season (mid-october) and did not reap its benefits. The resort located in Agia Marina (15km from Chania Town). The resort is split into two sections (across the road) and connected via overpass. The section closer to the beach has rooms with individual swimming pools, separate breakfast buffet, underground parking lot with elevator. The section across... More

An excellent hotel in all aspects. Very very polite and friendly personnel ready to help. The hotel complex is very big, spotlessly maintained, in both areas (the older and the new one). A bridge is connecting the two different areas giving access to the beach to the older part of the hotel. Breakfast selection is wonderful with delicious choices of... More

I booked a 7 night holiday for my husband's 50th birthday 16-23 October. I emailed the hotel in advance and communications were prompt - wish they'd actioned my request for when we arrived. No major problem as addressed during our stay. Check in smooth and greeted with bottle of wine, water and fruit in the room. The accommodation: I was... More

I traveled for the first time in my life to Crete, Greece, but I can say I am an experienced traveler (40-70 hotel nights per year). The Minoa Palace Resort & Spa is one of the best hotels I ever stayed. I cannot find any negative issue. I got a nice spacious room with a nice view. Amenities, bed, bathroom,... More

Sad to say our overwhelming memory is the indifference towards a group of pups abandoned by the tennis courts, shown by the management and most, but not all of the staff. Hotel staff regularly left the adjoining gate to the car park with no consideration given to the welfare of the dogs. On one occasion a staff member walked past... More

We stayed at the Minoa back in August for two weeks. This was our second stay at the Minoa Hotel. The rooms are very comfortable and the Hotel's facilities are good. We really enjoyed our holiday and we would like to thank the following staff who made it more special. Vaggelis Dagunkis who mainly worked in the Corali restaurant. His... More
