I spent a week at King Minos in mid September and it truly is a very good hotel. It's a very cozy place with a beautiful garden and it's located at about a five minute walk from a bus station.
I didn't spend a lot of time indoors because Crete is such an amazing island and I've tried to see as much as I could in such a short vacation, but I would recommend this hotel to anyone who is looking for a quiet place to stay in Hersonissos.
I didn't like the resort much, there are a lot of nicer choices in Crete, perhaps Rethymno for many, but I'd choose Chania.
Still this hotel is truly a four star. It was without a doubt the cleanest hotel I've ever stayed in. The food is very good, I think I ate the tastiest tomatoes ever :)). Only one small problem - dinner. Nothing to blow your mind, they need a Chef to bring some creativity to evening meals.
By far the best thing about this hotel is its staff. Everyone friendly, warm, always glad to help you - starting with the cleaning staff and ending with those working at the reception.
My favorite is Michaelis, the waiter at the pool bar. He's got the best sense of humor and he just might be the most down to earth guy I've ever met.
I know that over the next years I won't be able to stay away from Crete and I'd choose King Minos Palace again. It is a very good four star hotel which still has some work to do in order to get to the level of its five star staff.
