Our stay at MINOS PALACE
Hotel is located on top of a hill with fabulous 360 degree views and beautifully maintain grounds. A bit hard to access without a car and there is no other access other than Taxi. If you fly in it costs almost 90 euros for a taxi to get you to the hotel after almost one hour of travel (80 km ). The so called beach is man made and hardly is a beach, although they have made it usable and accessible. There are several pools. The main pool is lovely and over looks the Mediterranean sea with comfortable sun chair and beds. Breakfast buffet is amazing with huge variety of food and beverages . There is a dinner buffet at 25 Euros per person, I think over priced, although there is nothing else around or within comfortable walking distance. The room was huge , but unfortunately out of date furniture. Our bed was made of of two single beds which was not comfortable at all. After complaining they sort of fixed it with placing a foam on top, well it sort of worked. There is a good size balcony with fabulous view of the sea. There is absolutely nothing to do there and you could feel hostage unless you are willing to explore the rest of the island. All said, its a beautiful and peaceful place if you like seclusion and rest.

The exact kind of relaxation we needed!!
This was a wonderful hotel to stay at in Agios Nikolaos, Crete. It was a perfect, quiet, yet upscale hotel with the friendliest servers and wonderful accommodations. My husband and I celebrated a bit early our upcoming 20th wedding anniversary. The hotel's photographer, Melina, was exceptional. Wonderful to work with and she captured our trip beautifully. The views were breathtaking, the layout of the hotel and the accommodations makes this a place we will definitely be back to!

A slice of heaven on Crete
I cannot say enough great things about our stay at this hotel. Somehow the reservation we made via did not transmit correctly, so when we arrived at the hotel at midnight only a room for 2 (rather than 3) was available. The hotel put us in 2 separate rooms the first night and then moved in a sofa bed to the bungalow in which two of us were put. From thereon, things were on an upsweep. Olympia at the front desk and Georgios (Sp??) went above and beyond to make our stay a truly wonderful one. Every individual at this hotel was pleasant and truly happy to see us. I loved the private beach, the proximity to the old St. Nicholas church (although it took us 2 days to find that the hotel had a key), hiking paths, etc. The breakfast was one of the best ever....still craving my homemade yogurt, Greek donut with honey and fresh squeezed orange juice...all overlooking colorful landscaping and with a view toward the port.
