Stayed at Minos Imperial in October 2014. First impression on entering the reception area was "WOW" all marble and chandeliers. The site itself was very impressive but things went rapidly downhill. Our room was large but tired and dated and needed decorating as was the bathroom but again needed re-furbishing. there was a distinct lack of lighting in the bedroom with one ceiling light just inside the door, two bedside lights and a picture light over a very poor picture. Above the dressing table was a huge mirror with no light making it impossible to use.The food in the restaurant was very poor and certainly not 5 star standard. Our complimentary meals in the Laguna restaurant was no better with only two choices for starter and main courses and only one choice of sweet. Again the standard was very poor. We would have been tempted to go into Sissi some 8 to 9 kilometers away but this meant taking a taxi at 15 euros each way as there is no public transport and no street lighting. The only alternative was a walk along the cliff face; very nice in daylight but not to be recommended at night! The only "entertainment" was a music quiz on a couple of nights. Many of the staff gave the impression that we were a nuisance. I appreciate that the hotel was closing down for the winter 2 days after we left on 23 October but the last customer should be as important as the first. I could never recommend this hotel to any other travellers and it is certainly not suitable for anyone with walking difficulties as the paths are very steep.
