We stayed at the Minos Palace for a week in late October. We booked a junior suite which was very comfortable and attractively designed with two large balconies facing different but attractive sea views.
The staff were all very helpful and polite and the pools, sun bathing areas and beach were all kept in excellent condition. The hotel is a few Km outside Agios Nickolaos, situated on a peninsula with excellent views in all directions. As a result it is quiet, which suited us perfectly, but if you wish you can walk into AK and join the throngs of tourists or drive a few Km north to Elounda.
It is a good location for visiting the Lasthli Plateau, as well as all places east. An unforgettable memory was climbing to the stunningly beautiful location of Karfi, an ancient Minoan ruined city reminiscent of an unspoilt Machu Picchu, but far more atmospheric, we were the only people there! It is also an easy drive to Heraklion and Knossos etc..
