    Our Crete Getaway

    Fantastic 5 star Hotel Staff also deserve 5 stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ From beachside location to overall high standards nothing could be faulted. Only minor complaint is the €2 charge for coffee pods in room A bit excessive 😟

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    I did a solo travel to get some rest and relaxation before baby is due. Minoa palace was perfect in every way! I stayed in the wing across the road near the beach and had a private pool. Perfect sized pool and got lots of sun. The rooms were large and well equipped and the food was outstanding! Service was great and staff all friendly and helpful. I was sad to go. I cannot wait to return!

    Room was clean and spacious, staff were attentive and helpful, especially the concierge staff who went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. Pool areas were very nice and the food is spectacular. Highly recommend.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    The hotel is in a nice location, it has spacious rooms and lots of great amenities. You get to eat a wonderful breakfast on the beach every morning, there are multiple great pools, a nice spa and fitness center on the property. The beach is nice, but it's a pebble beach and the water gets deep pretty quickly, so it's not the most ideal for young kids (they had a great time in the pools though).

    Great Views

    I really loved this hotel. Customer service was great and the views were exceptional. I would not buy jewelry from them again as a lot of the jewelry they sold in the store was not authentic. I saw it down at the old Venetian harbor for 1/4 of the cost. I am pretty upset about that.

  • 8.0.Very good

    Hotel had very little atmosphere, split across two parts, the beach side was remote from the other side. No cushions for the beach sunbeds- poor in a 5 star hotel! Beach shingle between the sunbed area and the sea.
