Minos Beach art hotel has been influenced by the traditional architectural style of fishermen’s villages of Eastern Crete. One storey, whitewashed bungalows and villas with terraces and minimal interiors are almost touching the sea. The unique environs of the hotel with its sumptuous gardens and narrow stone paved streets host the 45 works of Greek and foreign artists. In the eastern part of Crete, only a ten-minute walk from the town centre of Agios Nikolaos and a 45-minute drive from the airport of Heraklion. Exquisite decoration features, minimalist forms and Feng-Shui elements enriched by the Greek aesthetics of cotton and wood, handcrafted details, candles and water syntheses, create unique spaces and corners, making your stay in Minos Beach unforgettable. For a truly VIP experience at Minos Beach, we offer one presidential villa and three executive villas with private swimming pools, as well as exclusive bungalows that are literary “caressing” the sea.

Reviews Summary
This summary was created by AI, based on recent reviews.
Powered by AI
Minos Beach Art Hotel garners praise for its spotless environment, which includes immaculate rooms and pristine beaches, as well as its well-kept facilities. While the rooms are generally appreciated for their design and comfort, there are occasional remarks about size and accuracy compared to online images. The staff's friendly and professional service contributes to the hotel's serene and welcoming atmosphere, despite some design inconsistencies. Amenities like the private sunbathing platforms and tranquil spa enhance the experience. The hotel's picturesque location is convenient for local exploration, though guests' views on value vary, with some questioning the cost relative to the room offerings.

We stayed at Minos Beach Art Hotel for a week. I did an enormous amount of research before booking from Australia. We stayed for a week at both the Acro Suites and Minos Beach. Although you cannot compare the accommodation nor hotels both were perfect.

I think one of the most important things to do when booking is really research what you are looking for in your holiday as far as accommodation goes. Minos Beach Art Hotel is spread out over quite an area of land and has different accommodation options. I was so pleased I read through previous reviews as we chose the bungalow option right on the waters edge. This bungalow has been recently refurbished and the styling is excellent. The room, ensuite and WIR with balcony right on the water was just stunning and perfect for us - our own private little piece of paradise. Think boat on water vibes with a full moon thrown in.

Just a note that not all the accommodation has been refurbished and just make sure you are booking exactly what you want and I would recommend phoning and speaking with the lovely reception staff to get all the latest information.

We dined almost exclusively at Terpis nearer to our accommodation and the food and service was 10/10. It was absolutely amazing, faultless. The staff also really made our holiday. They were all just so caring, authentic and kind.

The spa was also gorgeous and the staff were friendly and caring. Maria was great and both my daughter and I enjoyed a really relaxing massage and facial. Maria has great hands and is very professional in her technique so I can highly recommend.

Probably the only area I feel the hotel could improve is the gym. We are daily gym people and the equipment really does need an upgrade and the area refreshed. I feel it would be great to have more equipment, new weights, mats and a bigger area to house the number of users in the high season.

All in all we had a fantastic time and will definitely be back. Thank you.

Had a great time with friends at this hotel, while visiting Crete. Firstly I would like to point out something that impressed me. And that is the hotels' readiness to operate in this new normality. From temperature's measurement, disinfection stations throughout the property, e-check in, qr codes etc., honestly made us feel that we are in a safe environment.
The rooms are really nice with a lovely boho chic aesthetic and decor, great views to the sea, amazing gardens, and last but not least an easy 15' coastal walking distance to the very centre of the small town of Agios Nikolaos. Great location.
However, the highlight of this hotel is its people, who are always ready to assist and to attend to every need. 5 star service.
Would definitely go back and would highly recommend it!

We wanted a place to relax and reset after all this corona madness so we decided to go back to Minos.

We were impressed by the safety measures applied at the hotel, from temperature control upon arrival and mobile check-in to cleanliness in all areas (they even have a guy who disinfects sun loungers by the beach after use). The setting offers privacy by default so that made distancing easy.

Lobby area is renovated with a modern approach which we loved. Our room was also renovated which was a big plus. All staff were friendly and attentive although this time everybody wears a face mask. Food in general is improved and focused on Greek cuisine. Some outlets are closed but operating hours to the open ones are extended, also food and drinks can be delivered everywhere by placing an order via hotel app. Tepsis restaurant has a new menu and Agapi and the team are great :)

Going back to Minos Beach was the best thing that happen to us this year.

Thank you all! We will see you soon!!!

We stayed here for a week in September and had the best time. We had visited the hotel in 2019 but only had B&B, whereas this time we opted for HB.
Overall food was amazing. Fruit, juices, pastries and toast was served to your table upon your request. The remaining cooked breakfast was made to order in a Covid sensible and organised way inside the restaurant.
Dinner was a 4 course meal of a very high restaurant standard which we thoroughly looked forward to each evening.

Our accommodation was a Superior Sea View Bungalow which was extremely spacious for 2 adults and a toddler.
We spent our days at the private beach which was perfect for us. Food and drink was easy to order to our sunbeds via the hotel app.
All the team at the hotel were extremely friendly especially Despina, Ivina & Irina who looked after us and went above and beyond to put a smile on our little boys face every day.

Overall we had the best time and cannot wait to return this little paradise in Crete.

The concept of Minos Beach Art Hotel is very well defined and matches a lot to what we like. You don't get the feeling that the hotel is overcrowded and there is enough space for everybody to access the sea for swimming. The hotel has very nice gardens with beautiful vegetations which is part of the nice concept. The staff is in general very kind, courteous and understands what good service means. Even with the cleaning lady you can talk in English and express your wishes.
We were often in the Pure lounge bar as it is next to the sea and to a small sand beach. The location was quite suitable for us with our baby, as we could have often some rest in the shadow. Writing about the Pure lounge bar I must give all compliments to the staff, Ivana and Despina. Both are super kind and read all our wishes from our lips. Both made our holiday a lot more comfortable and helped us also with heating up baby food, etc. Also I need to mention a situation when the a small kid was stung by a bee and the parents were of course quite nervous. Ivana immediately took care of the kid in a very experienced and professional way. So, kid and parents were soothed down quickly and could enjoy further in their holidays. Having such staff is really worth a lot!

However, the hotel's service is really great. For each request we got quick response. For instance, once our baby was a bit nervous in the evening and we though about eating in our bungalow by picking up the food as takeaway. Instead, the restaurant staff delivered the food on plates to our room and we had a very releaxed nice dinner at our terrace.
Another good response was when we explored a big bug in our bath which came in when we left the window open. We asked if there is some possibility to get some net on the window as protection. One hour after our request a sporadic solution was put on the window from the outside. We either didn't realized when somebody was there to put the net on.

I would also like to address some suggestion for improvements.
In our bungalow there was not enough possibilities to put up our wet towels and clothes. In the bath there are just two hooks for the towels after a shower, but there is nothing we could hang up hand or face towels, even though the bath room has quite nice space. Also on the terrace there is no possibility to hang up wet beach towels, swimming trunks, etc.

We had a wonderful stay at this hotel inspired by Greek mythology. The concept of Minos’s labyrinth really appealed to us, as did the works of art scattered throughout the gardens.
The location is ideal, a 15 minute walk from the center of Agios Nikolaos along the seafront. There is a small mini market right in front of the hotel if needed and many restaurants within walking distance.

Regarding the room, after spending a little time looking for the ideal room we opted for a "seafront bungalow", which was renovated, with a terrace overlooking the beach as well as the gardens. The opposite was almost non-existent.
For those who hesitate, I don't think that the “waterfront” bungalow (the range above) is essential as the proximity to the sea is immediate, but it really depends on your budget. The most important thing in my opinion is to get a renovated bungalow because, having visited a non-renovated one, I can tell you that the difference in standard is considerable!

In terms of swimming, we have always had free deckchairs and umbrellas. The employees of the pool bar come by regularly to see if we need anything, all in a very discreet and friendly manner (thanks again to Dimitri for his kindness!)
It is also possible to order a wide variety of drinks directly through the hotel app.

Likewise, you can book the gym on the app. My partner and I did not understand this info from the start, we went there regularly without reservations because the room is only rarely used.
There is also a room designed for working, reading or even playing the piano if you feel like it. Very useful for printing a document or just relaxing in the cool.

Finally, in terms of services and restaurants, special mention to the award-winning restaurant "La bouillabaisse", a real treat. Note that we ate little outside the hotel as the restaurants on site were so good and the setting elegant!
Special mention also to the Spa team Ananea, Maria, Irene and Dinos. You can go there with your eyes closed! The only downside is that we would like to go there every day because the care is so good! Thanks again to Maria for her cheerfulness and for her great advice!

The best thing about the Hotel is the close Location to the Ocean, with direct access from many points across the Hotel. The Staff are also fantastic. Any wish at any time of the day and night is welcome and fulfilled. The food is also amazing. What was not so great about the Hotel are the intransparent room categories displayed on the website and all booking sites. As many have said here before you need to be careful that you don't get a non renovated room, which they call classic style. The pictures on the website and online are only of the renovated rooms with the best view. Probably its best to book with the hotel directly and state that you want a bungalow on the left side and not the right side of the grounds. The right side also has a very ugly view directly onto the town. Upon our arrival they tried to show us many different bungalows as we did not want one with classic style however they had sold all the modern/renovated bungalows and so we had to opt for a different category. I think its very unfair to ask hotel guests to pay the same amount for a bungalow that is not renovated. However, this set aside we had an amazing stay and would come back!

We were lucky enough to stay for a whole week at Minos Beach Art Hotel and can confidently say it's one of our favorite hotels in the world. The location is divine - within easy walking distance of Agios Nikolaos, so you're close enough to other restaurants/bars if you want them, but you still feel you're in a secluded, private place. We loved waking up early in the morning, taking advantage of the outstanding breakfast buffet (delicious and extensive), heading down to one of the hotel's two private beaches for a morning swim, and splitting the rest of our day between relaxing on the beach, sampling the hotel's several bars and restaurants and taking our rental car out to visit cultural sites in the surrounding area. We stayed in one of the refurbished rooms - highly recommend booking one of these if you're able. The bathroom was spacious with a large rain shower (that didn't sacrifice water pressure for aesthetics as some rain showers do!). Alexandra was a great help in booking activities (we booked a vineyard tour/tasting and boat charter through the hotel, both of which were exceptional), and the whole staff was engaging, friendly and helpful. All in all, it was truly a dream of a vacation, and we can't wait to come back.

My partner and I stayed at Minos Beach Art Club for 3 nights this July as a treat (as a little more on the expensive side). The setting is beautiful, the interiors are a feast for the eyes and all the staff went above and beyond! We stayed in a garden view bungalow and loved the interiors but think we’d upgrade if visited again to be able to benefit from a sea view.
We have to call out the Aegeo spa which was incredible, Irini with her warm friendly energy made us smile and feel welcomed. The Cretan massage was out of this world with the magic hands of Dinos and Valedina. We felt the pricing at the spa was very reasonable. A must if you visit !
The sunbeds / beach areas are incredible with wide open views and crystal clear waters. We did however have to reserve beds in the morning as the best spots got snapped up early. Using the app to order from your sunbed was great and good touch.
Food at breakfast was great - again incredible services. I think they could do a better job of offering a vegan option. We found for lunch that the best menu was at the pool bar - however again there could be better vegan and lighter options available.
The restaurants down by the sea (La bouillabaisse) whilst the setting and staff are amazing, they could do with some interior love as it feels very basic (the tables and chairs especially) vs the rest of the hotel and is a more expensive dining experience.
The yoga classes are a nice touch but felt that they missed a trick not offering this with a sea view and instead it was held in a garden courtyard…
We loved and would recommend but small rooms for improvement.

There is something about this resort that is very quintessential I think the fact that it is privately owned by a family makes it special.

From top to bottom you can tell that the staff wants to make you feel as comfortable as possible because it shows in everything they do.

One of my favorite things about Minos beach resort is that it is very quiet and you can only hear the water.

This resort definitely has a family vibe, but it also has a grown and sexy vibe as well. A for sure destination spot for Newley weds or anniversaries or couples just dating. ;)

The Terpsis restaurant on site is my favorite because it has the sea view and love the shaded area for lunch during the day.

All the food It's presented beautifully and is very fresh and taste worthy.

Housekeeping is also on point with making sure the rooms are refreshed daily, it's a pretty big resort but they make you feel like you are the only one there.

If you like peace and quiet on leisure travel The private sea entrances are amazing and you can enjoy a swim in the water without disturbing others or others disturbing you.

Minos beach is definitely leading in Crete when it comes to service. They really mastered the excellence of what hospitality is.

I definitely will pay Minos beach a visit again in the near future.

This is my second time ;)

I would say all of them do from early morning As sun moves round by late afternoon some waterfronts are shaded due to large trees Which sometimes is welcome.

There are pool towels in your room and it’s easy to get them changed by the pool bar once you’ve used them. The maid also put clean ones in our room each day. There aren’t many steps but some of the footpaths are laid in a ‘crazy paving’ style aren’t perfectly flat so not ideal if you are unsteady on your feet.
