I’ll start by saying I was disappointed with this hotel. I was expecting a certain standard and it simply wasn’t met. Check-in was quick and easy, but very unfriendly. We were shown to our rooms, which were ok. Fairly standard, certainly not 5*. The bed, holy moly. I’m fairly

We booked our room directly with the hotel and got an ocean view room with a fantastic view. The staff were so attentive, right down to little details like luggage delivery, dining arrangements and calling us drivers when we chose to go into town for dinner. The pool was

The location is beautiful, spoilt by a black marble swimming pool with steps which you could hardly see into the pool. Half the pool wasted with large rubber cushions to pose on and palm trees. Rooms ok, nothing special, bath very narrow and a really stupid large soap dish

This is a lovely hotel but there are a couple of things that do not make it perfect. For the positives: food is great - even for my vegan friend she managed to find enough to eat. The pineapple and the veg were so very tasty. The waiters were attentive and proactive. The rooms

Dear Mrs Denise G, Thank you for choosing Sensimar Minos Palace for your holiday and for taking the time giving us valuable feedback regarding your stay with us. We are sad to hear that you didn't enjoy our entertainment program, however we try to take into consideration all our guests preferences and age groups and that is why we have a variety of different live music programs such as Live guitar, jazz nights, Beach bar parties, and traditional Cretan music with dancers. Regarding the Bali beds, as in most hotels, are upon reservation at extra charge, as it is something more special than a normal sunbed and also because there are only five of them, so we have created a reservation system in order to avoid misunderstandings between our guests. We are glad that you have enjoyed your holiday with us and we accept your feedback with a positive mindset and always with a mission to improve ourselves. We would have loved to see a higher grade at your review or alternatively to hear from you if there is anything else we could do better. Thank you once again for your feedback and we look forward to welcoming you back in the future. Kind regards, Michalis Daskalakis Hotel Manager
