We stayed here for 5 nights in May. Long story but we were lucky enough to be offered a try-out transfer here from its sister hotel the Minos Palace - also a wonderful hotel.
The location is idyllic with wonderful seafront views from both sides of the peninsula it is on. We had a bungalow that was not right on the waterfront but within sight and it was wonderful. Never a problem finding a sunlounger and what a view from the sunlounger when you sat at the waterfront!
The restaurant is all outdoor which will rarely be a problem if the weather is good but we were rather cold on our first night there, however that was the only time. The food is superb. Part waiter service, part buffet.
We've booked to go again next May so that tells you how much we loved it!

- 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.
