My family have stayed at Minas apartments 3 times now, love it there so much. it has everything you could want

Family Run and they will remember you, and are very very accommodating, changing my room to suit my disability. For a small self catering apartment they have a range of faculties not normally found- Great clean pool, bar, pool table, etc

HIGHLY RECCOMMENDED - We will be back !!!

Love to Minas Maria, Jenny & Stefanos

Spent 2 weeks at Minas Apartments - they are set in a perfect location behind the main beach road about a 4 min walk away. Opposite a supermarket and next to a coffee/bakery shop.

Apartments themselves are great - clean (maid changes sheets/towels every 2 days) and just what you need for a self catering holiday in Hersonissos. Nice clean pool area, bar and pool table.

The family owners are AMAZING! Welcoming, friendly, fun and hospitable people that made our holiday what it was :) (lots of free shots too!)

All in all an excellent value for money accommodation where you won't be disappointed. Thoroughly recommend!

Four of us arrived here not knowing what to expect from either the hotel or the resort. But from the word go, we were having the time of our lives. We were greeted by Stefan who did us a few rounds of free shots accompanied by some very well priced beers. Not to mention his favourite radio station (and now ours), Fly FM 108! The hotel bar is great for meeting and socialising with other residents; Minas, Maria, Stefan, Jenny & Niki cannot do enough to make you feel at home and relaxed. What a great family and hotel.

The resort itself was perfect for us, the location of the hotel was nice and quiet but just a few minutes walk from the main strip of bars and clubs. Even if you don't fancy a dance, every club has its own seafront seated area where you can have good conversation and a few beers. Local restaurant Mythos is fantastic to eat, great hosts and free desserts, what more can you ask for?

I will definitely be paying a return visit to Minas Apartments, can't recommend it enough! Maybe later...

Came here last minute as recommended by T Cook. What a welcome from the first minute with Stefan. Apartments are fine and clean and everything works.The bar and pool area are very spacious with shady areas as well as sunny. Food is snacks but tasty beer is cheap enough. As for the BBQ well look at the photos- great fun and Minas is a star turn. I shall be v sad to leave.
Minas,Maria,Jenni,Stefan, Markella, Niki, Julie Stefan Snr and Uncle Boss, thank you so much for looking after me.
To all the great people I met- you know who are- thanks also and the photos will be on their way. Special mention to Ed and the Leeds boys- great birthday suit mate!

We have been going to Minas Apt, on and off, for 15 years and at least once a year for the last 10 years. When I retired I decided to see the world and went to Minas as a rest between our travels. Problem is now I prefer Minas to the rest to the rest of the world. There is nowhere that makes you more welcome than Minas. The family always go that extra mile to make your stay an enjoyable one.
Some of the best tavernas are near by (Mythos Restaurant a must for a visit) and after we have eaten most guests migrate back to the bar at Minas where the tables end up pushed together and we finish the day with a good old “chin wag” over a drink.
If you turn right on leaving Minas and keep going past the Creta Maris Hotel you soon reach a less commercialised area with some quieter beaches. If you like walking keep going and you are soon in the countryside. Julia the maid keeps the rooms spotlessly clean and greets you with a cheery smile each day. In other words a holiday Apartment to suit all tastes, the best.

Firstly a big thank you to Minas, Maria, Jenny and Stefan! What a lovely family, you made us feel at home and were fantastic hosts, i cannot thank you enough! Myself and 3 other mates stayed here for 8 nights, the location of these apartments was perfect! Near enough to the strip for a 3 minute stroll in, but still far enough so you can have a good nights sleep! I cannot recommend enough!!!
