We have just returned (22/9/2011) from a week's holiday at the King Minos Palace Hotel. It is a hotel worthy of if its star rating. The hotel maintains a very high standard in its cleanliness, efficiency and professionalism. We had a room (102) which opened out on to a little garden, with olive and lemon trees. Only thing to mention regarding the room, pillows are very small and you may wish to ask Reception for another one. The pool area is beautifully kept, and the swimming pool is great for dipping in to cool down, as well as doing lengths :) The Reception staff were friendly and polite and brilliant, right from checking in, answering questions, providing information on the area and checking out. We enjoyed the buffet breakfast and the variety of choices on the evening buffet. The staff are a little too eager though, to clear your empty plates. A range of evening entertainment, including quizes, Greek evenings and Brazilian dancers (they were the most impressive act). The hotel have got it right, with the team they have in place. They are so friendly and make you feel so welcome throughout your stay. The animation team is fun and not pushy. Star Beach is only a 10 minute walk away, ideal for all ages and hosts many watersports activities. On the right of Star Beach, if you continue along the road you will come across other smaller quiet beaches. You must visit the little villages of Old Hersonissos, Piskipiano and Koutouloufari (go to Espero's Taverna - Fab), so quaint and pretty with little bars and tavernas, as well as gift shops. Nice to visit in the day or at night. They are based next to each and about a 30 minute walk from the hotel. We would highly recommend this hotel - Rach and John.
