I have recently returned from a 1 week stay in the Minos Palace and had a fantastic time. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly, and when we arrived we were pleasantly suprised with our upgrade to a suite with a shared pool, which had beautiful views over the bay.
The hotel was lovely and peaceful, I would honestly recommend this hotel for anyone seeking a quiet and relaxing holiday.
The main town of Agios Nikolaos is a 40 minute walk into town, but its actually a nice stroll along the sea front and a taxi back is only 6 or 7 euros. We didn't eat in the hotel in the evening as we went into town but breakfast and lunch was lovely, especially the Taverna which has beautiful views and excellent food.
I am getting married in Elounda next year and will definitely be recommending this hotel for my guests to stay in.
