The hotel looks nice on the outside, has a nice looking reception area, but the bedrooms are very, very run down . Very much in need of repairs and renovation.The bathroom had broken tiles and was very dirty. The diningroom looked like a boardingschool dininghall from the 50's . Food is put on your plate at a buffet table and... More

We stayed here one week. It was a travel agency pack with a half board. It wasn't exactly what you want out of Podgora. It's safe "hotel food", nothing wrong with it, but You should go out for a dinner. There's a lot of good places to eat. The room itself was a good one with a sea view. We... More

The rooms at the hotel are far from the best, but good enough for sleeping at! Everything at our room were orange and gave a feeling of time travelling back to the 70's. The rest of the hotel is actually not that bad; nice indoor swimmingpool, gym with sauna and jacuzzi, hotel bar and reception looks good, pool and arcade... More

The only good thing about this hotel is its location.Minerva hotel was probably very high class in 70-s, but it does not look like any refurbishing was made since that. Our room was old, in clear need of renovation and with some unpleasant smells in the bathroom. This hotel does not deserve 3 stars. We travelled via Apollo operator as... More

The hotel doesn't look very well outside, it seems a little bit old, but the rooms are cleaned and the food is good. Now I will tell you the bad aspects. When we first arrived at the hotel we were a little bit dissapointed, it looked like a hospital, we arrived a little bit earlier and the stuff was cleaning... More

We thought we'd made a mistake when we arrived at Hotel Minerva. Our room smelt of diesel oil and the furniture and bathroom were rather basic. We were given another room that night, but the air con didn't work and it was very hot, but the next day we headed for the beach after breakfast and everything seemed much better.... More

Rated 3 stars, I would expect more from this hotel. However, stars might have been given because of the hotels facilities. Here I found a swimmingpool and spa, and an ok fitness room too. Set this away, and we end up with a 2 stars hotel located near the beach in a nice area. Our room was old and considerately... More

The hotel is old and worned down but it is clean and the staff is polite and service-minded. The air conditioning worked and there was always enough warm water. You get what you pay for and here you get surprisingly more.

We felt that the hotel should be rated with two stars, not three. The hotel needs some remodeling. The Spa-section was great but it seems as if they have neglected the rest. (Rooms, restaurant, bar, sun-deck etc.) The hotel has great potential. They need to get rid of the carpet on the floor, fix the bathrooms and make the rooms... More
