We wanted an adults only hotel and this pretty much ticked all the boxes The place is clean and functional as a base within a reasonable walking distance of Agios Nikolaos, but well served by taxis The buffet food overall was ok but nothing particularly special The bar food outlets offered a nice lunch alternative on site too The front desk staff were very helpful arranging tours and excursions There was nothing particularly wrong with the place where we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, but it was just a good 4 star experience in our opinion
Stayed in this hotel for a week in July 2022. Lovely welcome on arrival, and taken out to pool area. Stunning views. Room was clean and functional, with a balcony overlooking the pool and sea. A must here I think. Breakfasts were ok (buffet) but bit limited in some selections. Evening meals were best down by the beach side restaurant which was lovely. The little private beach was also great for swimming. But even though it was July, the hotel was very quiet in the evenings, with only 1 night of live entertainment. During the day my only gripe would be people leaving towels on the sun beds at breakfast, then disappearing for hours on end. This should be stopped immediately by the hotel staff. The pool was also very cold. We had a car (a must here), so were able to get out and about and travel to many lovely local areas for beaches, lunches and dinners, as the hotel is a good long walk to the old town of Agios Nicholas - but well worth it. We drove in most days at some point. This is a nice hotel, but don't think I would return as it seemed to lack atmosphere in the bar/hotel in the evenings.
If you’re reading these reviews then you are considering staying at this hotel. The first thing I’ll say is don’t consider any longer you have just found the most incredible place in the whole of Greece! My wife and I wanted to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary in style & luxury so deciding where to spend it was a big decision that had to be right! WOW, what an incredible experience we’ve had, from the very first email I sent asking multiple questions right the way through to our last day, nothing as been too much trouble. Every member of staff is professional, friendly and clearly have a passion to be here. It doesn’t matter who is is, from the front desk,waiting staff, bar staff, chefs, housekeeping, management, pool cleaner (I’m sure I’ve missed departments out) everyone has a smile, with a friendly, professional approach which makes the hotel an extremely nice environment to be in. The hotel itself is stunning, spotless, comfortable with outstanding views, a real 5* experience. The room was beautiful, lovely decor with some really nice touches and kept immaculate by housekeeping everyday. The food was tasty and plentiful with lots of choices and the dining area was constantly being cleaned and squared away discreetly by the staff. We had a private dining experience in the herb garden one evening which blew us away. There was a slight chill in the air that evening which my wife a little concerned it may be too cold, we had no need to worry, when we got to our private table there were blankets and a patio heater to ensure our experience was perfect, and absolutely perfect it was, from the excellent service, dietary requirements taken care of and amazing views. I could simply go on and on about this whole experience being perfect and as a couple who are fortunate to travel extensively I can honestly tell you this whole experience has been one of, if not the most special one we’ve ever had. Thank you Minos Palace and a massive thank you to all the staff who make it all happen. We will be back soon
