10/10 Exceptional

Fantastic property, very clean and excellent staff. Location is very close to a little strip of good restaurants which are nice to visit if you would like some variation from the hotel restaurant (which are both lovely), and a relatively short walk into Agios Nikolaos itself which has a wider even more bars and restaurants. The grounds of the hotel are well maintained, the setting on the coast is beautiful, and even though the property is close to the local town manages to feel very seculded. The hotel bar serves wonderful cocktails, which the staff put a lot of effort into ensuring are beautifully presented and on most nights there was a great DJ that played very melow music which added to the hotels ambience without being distruptive. I'd highly recommend this hotel to anyone and will definitely be visiting again.

Fantastic hotel, highly recommended
We had the most wonderful stay for our Honeymoon at the Minos Beach Art Hotel. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and they were incredibly friendly. We had a slight issue in that the original bungalow allocated to us had only a partial sea view when we had booked a sea view and it was sorted straight away, moving us to a different room and offering us a free meal in the fabulous Bacchus restaurant. The rooms are minimalist and cool, our balcony with the sea view was gorgeous. Beach and pool area are great with plenty of space for lounging. We did one of the free yoga classes with Maria which was excellent. We also had a massage in the spa-highly recommended and very relaxing. Great breakfast selection and amazing meal for my birthday in the Bouillabaisse restaurant. A cake was even sent to our room which was such a lovely touch. Special mention to Alexandra and Katerina at the front desk who couldn’t have done enough for us. We will definitely be back

Minos is the first hotel we've ever gone back to for a second trip, and it didn't disappoint. Beautiful location, superb staff and delightful gardens to unwind in. Special mention to Caterina on reception, who surprised us with the same room we stayed in (and loved) last time; thanks to Roula who kept our room spotlessly clean; and to Yiannis and Stavros behind the bar. Can't recommend the hotel enough – a glorious spot to watch the sun rise each morning, and then relax for the rest of the day – with a host of restaurants within easy walking distance. Thank you – I'm sure we'll be back (again).

we had a few minutes of disappointment when we realized that the room we booked was not the one on the picture but we upgraded it and got what we wanted... all was great except for the water sport / boat rental at the end of the resort. Not so friendly lady there (lacking patience) and charged us every penny she could! not recommended). but the resort was great ;)

Perfect from start to finish
Loved my stay at Minos Beach Art Hotel. Check in was slightly overly complicated as it’s contact free via an app due to Covid but once we were set up this app would enable us to order drinks anywhere in the hotel, from the beach to the beds by the pool. All the staff were super friendly and happy to assist. Our room was one of the newly renovated sea view rooms which are cool and stylish and include a super comfy bed. I definitely recommend contacting the hotel in advance to try and secure one of these rooms! Public areas are equally stunning, from the huge art in reception to the main bar and restaurants that have been put together with huge attention to detail. We also had fun walking round finding art in the hotel grounds. Some is better than others but it’s still a nice touch. Breakfast was served in the main restaurant and has a huge choice of both fresh prepared options and buffet (served by staff from behind glass screens). Finally the cocktails served in the evening from the main bar are epic! Lots of unusual flavour combos but all really delicious. I definitely hope to return to this hotel one day!
