  • 8.0.Very good

    The situation was perfect, right on the water's edge. The staff were charming and helpful and sorted out every query that we had. The public areas were smart and modern but the room itself was very dated, with an inadequate shower. The food was okay but not 5 star. However I would love to go back there if the rooms were modernised.

    Minos Art is a lovely hotel - beautiful grounds, sincere, attentive staff. The breakfast and HB dinners were excellent and authentic. We were very happy there. It is well located and offers privacy at the water’s edge. We enjoyed the art pieces and the private beaches. It is understated but elegant and within 15 mins walk if Aghios Nikolaos

    The hotel grounds are an absolulte pleasure to stroll. The buffet choices are very varied and the quality of food was excellent. All the staff - from front desk to cleaners - were very polite and friendly, happy to help. It never felt crowded because the grounds are large and the accommodation is spaced out making it private and peaceful. Views were fabulous. Location is great - close walking to town.

    A Mixed Bag

    There's so much to love about Minos Beach Art Hotel! The setting is stunning, the food is good, and the staff is friendly. However, so much of the experience depends on the bungalow you are given. We had the bad luck of being placed into an overwater bungalow that was far from the beach/reception/breakfast and had a VERY different view that that which was advertised. The water access was also unusable due to slippery rocks. It's a shame that the class of room you pay for doesn't fairly determine the quality of your room experience. We felt like we seriously overspent for the experience.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    The resort is located about a 45 minute drive east of Heraklion Airport. It has parking facilities for your vehicle. The bungalows are spaced apart so that no one feels the proximity of one's neighbor(s). In fact, you really can't tell how many people are staying at the resort because of how the lodging is planned. Minos Beach Art has a number of restaurants to sample. We tried them all and were extremely satisfied with the service and with what we ordered. You might just want to ask about the portions. They're big. The grounds are exceptionally maintained. Our bungalow had access to the sea so my wife would go swimming early each morning. There's scuba diving available if you desire, There's a beach. You can order from your lounger via an app you are encouraged to download. And if you're lucky to stay during their Greek Night, you'll be entertained with live traditional music and Greek dancers. It's really a fun night We stayed a week here and really enjoyed it. Do walk around the grounds, there's art of course scattered throughout the grounds to appreciate and an olympic sized pool. I feel somewhat guilty because I had no desire to venture into town. It might just had been being a typical New Yorker and not wanting to risk losing my parking space. Or simply this resort had it all.
