I recently stayed at the Sensimar Palace for 4 nights and had a great break. The hotel is of a high standard and very clean. Staff are wonderful and were always happy to help. The ocean views and gardens are fantastic. The pool and private beach are perfect spots for sunbathing. Pool towels provided, breakfast was superb. Room cleaned daily.... More

Great welcome, late at night. As we missed dinner, a cold plate of food was in our room for us. Lovely room, balcony and seaview and across the bay. Food great, hotel lovely and peaceful. Eating areas attractive. Really good service, all staff spoke English. The swimming pool was divine! I had it to myself a lot of the time... More

I've had the pleasure twice now of staying at The Minos Palace and have adored every bit of both trips thoroughly. The location, views, rooms, staff, beach bar, spa, sports and water sports facilities are all wonderful. My favourite place by far however is the superb Kulinarium restaurant and its excellent staff. This restaurant sets The Minos Palace ahead of... More

When you enter the grounds of the Sensimar Minos Palace, you enter a beautiful resort. There is a private beach, superb dining and a great deal of privacy. If you want to rest and find your equilibrium this is the place. The view from the rooms is nothing short of spectacular there are numerous pools throughout the resort. Was disappointed... More

We stayed here 12 nights, last May. We booked directly with the hotel. Best price guarantee and choice of rooms. First week half board, second week breakfast only. The hotel is very well maintained, has beautifull gardens and great views. We especially liked the beachbar (Thomas, one of the very best and nicest bartenders we've ever met!) and that lovely...

A stunning hotel set within beautiful grounds, it's own beach in a small cove and excellent restaurants. We felt relaxed from the moment we arrived. Our suite was immaculate, clean with views to match. Food was plentiful and varied, with an unhurried atmosphere.

During our stay at Minos Palace we ate lunch at the little restaurant by the sea. The staff are amazing (specially Manolis) and they will always welcome you with a smile. The food is nice and you will always get some fresh fruit after the meal. If you stay at Minos Palace you must pay this little place a visit... More

This was our eighth visit to the hotel. We weren't able to visit last year, so were looking forward to seeing any changes. As soon as we arrived, it just reinforced that this is our favourite hotel anywhere. The staff are so warm, remembering returning guests and the service is first class.
