Good 6.0
Five stars no more like 3.75
Overall it was fine but for a five star hotel many things were poor for example no water to drink was provided in the room.I reported that the telephone did not work no one came to sort it.The kettle did not work and it was reported and eventually fixed .Water took a long time to drain from wash basin. The. TV had many German channels and only one English.Not at all what the case should be when selling a 5star image.Five

A great location yet needs some improvements
Great location, beautiful view, however, somewhat boaring Food not exciting Value for money - questionable
Michael, il3 night family trip
Very Good 8.0
Expensive and not really a 5 star
Stayed the Sensimar Minos Palace in August, had a lovely time, however I do not think it is a 5 star hotel and found it very expensive. Food was very average, definitely not 5 star.

Beautiful location!
Really nice location with private beach. However, rooms need maintenance and breakfast is poor. Limited choise for lunch and dinner. Food not good for value.

Just amazing layout of hotel, size of rooms, choice breakfast, panoramas, could not ask for more. Pleasant staff upgraded us at least once...small gifts of attention ...

Wonderful hotel
Everything excellent. Only small issue is that the gym is poorly equipped which is surprising in such a wonderful hotel. Having said that I have stayed before and will be staying again.

A quality hotel on a magnificent location and we were given an upgrade to a suite which was a bonus
Brian, au3 night romance trip
Good 6.0
We were put in the wrong room for the first two nights, one which was much smaller with two twin beds. Eventually on the third day we were moved.
Ian, gb7 night romance trip
Good 6.0
OK resort, normal service
Nice hotel, but not good value for the money. Also, the people working at that hotel are not all super nice. One of the breakfast, an employee came to our family and said really rudely we couldn't have a bottle of water on our table - and it's a buffet.... Anyway, this hotel is good if you want a nice relaxing resort, but if you want to do some sightseeing, i wouldn't recommend it. However, you should you to the city center and try the very nice typical restaurant - which are 10X better than the hotel dinner restaurant!
