Stayed here for a week with my boyfriend and had an amazing time. Minas, Maria, Stefan and Jenny made us feel very welcome and love to get everyone involved so we made lots of friends there. The Saturday night BBQ was definitely the highlight, and somehow managed to win the quiz night haha. The location is ideal, only a short walk to the front with restaurants, bars, shops and beach. The room itself is more or less what we expected, basic as obviously it's Greek, but has everything you need and no complaints. Would certainly recommend to those looking for a fun, chilled-out holiday :)

Well what can I say that isn't said in the title!! From the moment you arrive to the moment you leave you ate made to feel apart of the family!!! Minas, Maria, Stefan and Jenny can't do enough for you!!! The atmosphere at the hotel is great, everyone friendly!! Mixed ages of guest staying at hotel would chat and socialise around the pool and in the bar in the evenings!!! Rooms are basic but have everything you need and are clean! Pool area is lovely as is the bar area!!! Bar food and drinks prices are really food value!! Location is fantastic, you are close to bars, restaurants and a supermarket right across the road!!! A great restaurant we found was Marina!! I have visited Crete several times in the past and my friends first visit!!! We can defiantly say we are already planning our trip to Crete for next year and there is only one place we will be staying.....Minas Apartmrnts!!! Thank you for making our holiday a holiday of a lifetime!!

Minas apartments is a very family friendly establishment set five minutes walk from the beach and harbour. The rooms are basic but for the price it is good value. The complex is small with a relativity small pool and pool area but perfect if you want a safe communal area to spend time with the kids. The bar is medium size and has a very friendly area and the staff are very warm and excellent with children. Would highly recommend if you are a family or a couple looking for a bit of peace close to the beach.

the apartments were aweful! The room we were put in was an average size and not very clean. We were on the top floor of the oldest part of the apartments, room 32 ( we can only assume it was the oldest part due to the state of which the room was in ). You entered into the kitchen area of the apartment which was equipt with the usual appliances. Kettle, toaster and a fridge which was pumping out so much heat that it heated the whole apartment and that was without the 40 odd degree temperatures we were having nearly every day. It was so bad that the ice box in the fridge would only freeze at the front while anything that was placed at the back simply defrosted. Thankfully we were only making ice and not keeping any food in it. Kitchen table, chairs and a bed sofa filled the room. The rear of the apartment consisted of the usual beds and bedroom furniture and the the bathroom was located in a box! The size of which was unbelievable! At 6' 5" I was lucky to be able to stand in it! The toilet was black and looked like it had never been cleaned as did the rest of the bathroom. No window so was very hot if you closed the door. In fact the only window in the entire apartment was a small square window located in the bedroom which only opened halfway so let in very little air. So we required the use of the air condition, which we had to pay extra for, which is common in Greece and at 35 euros was fairly reasonable. However, we had no control over the air-con as it was controlled from the reception area and therfore once the room became cooler it remained cold all night and the only way for us to control it was to turn it off at the mains!! The beds were typically hard, which is usually the norm for beds in Greece, but the sheets were full of holes as were the towels. Even when they were changed we were given towels and sheets with holes in them. The cleaning was very poor. Lucky if the floor was cleaned twice a week the bins emptied, which are supposed to be emptied every day- including the bathroom bin! The socket in the kitchen didn't work so if you wanted to use the electrical appliences then you had to use them in the bedroom. We asked for a light to be fixed twice and this was eventually sorted three days later. We asked to stay on in the room on our last day as our flight was late in the day. We were charged 20 euro but had to change rooms to the newest ( we assume ) block which is featured on this site. The room was a lot better except the fridge was of no use to anyone. The owners claimed that the apartments were only 2 stars, but thats no reason for the standards of the rooms that we were put in. The apartments are for the younger crowd who are more interested in going out and getting tanked up very night than for those couples who are there to appreciate the country that they are visiting. It hasn't put us off visiting the country or area again, but we certainly wont be staying at the Minas Apartments ever again.

Booked this on a cheapie deal but very happy as wasnt expecting a lot, officially 2 stars but you get a nice pool, clean rooms with good showers, cleaners are nice and thorough. Theres a nice bar area to sit in the evenings where the owners are really friendly and speak perfect english! The hotel is about 5 mins from the beaches and main resort where there is a nice harbour and loads of nice restaurants and bars, can get a bit bit noisy in the middle of the night because its right near the shops but you get used to it. Would definately recommend if you are thinking about coming here and we are quite fussy about our hotels so book with confidence you will have a great time!
