Modern family friendly resort
This hotel is very nice and clean, a true resort feel where you can tell most folks don't leave the resort. They offer activities each day. They have a number of pools, and outdoor bars (although they close way too early in my opinion), direct access to the beach, free breakfast (full, not some measely continental offering), and great outdoor dining/seating space. They also have a general store. Upon checkin we had free wine and fruit waiting for us, which was nice. They offer bike rentals but I will warn you their time estimates for getting to certain places (winery) was vastly off. There are a bunch of tourist heavy restaurants and shops down the road but I overall wished we'd stayed somewhere in Chania versus Platanias for a more athentic feel. Also, it was quite a ways from the airport.

nice resort
overall a nice place to stay. not sure if I call it 5 star compared to I there places in the qorld, but perhaps for everything else around it in that area it is a 5 star. location is not closest to chania, but easily accessible with car/taxi. staff are very nice and helpful. room conditions are very clean and comfortable.

Fantastic stay. Nothing wrong!
This was my anniversary trip and our first time to Greece. Minos palace really made us feel special and they upgraded our room and brought us a bottle of Greek sparkling wine and cake for our anniversary, I do not remember the two girls that checked us in, but they were so friendly and fantastic that it added a nice touch to the stay. The rest f the hotel was also fantastic. The breakfast buffet was large and well prepared with a variety of food. Varied juices and. Offer were also available and everything tasted great. There are so many pools and easy access to the ocean that there is no reason to leave the hotel but the staff was so helpful in finding excellent restaurants and places to go in both Chania and Platanias. Therefore also a lot of activities for my wife and I and for my child that we were never board. We were heartbroken that we had to leave as the Minoa Palace really made our trip to Greece so special. Thank you Minoa Palace!

Great service
Stephania was super helpful. I think we bugged her but she handles it super well lol. She gave us great tips and extra special attention to our needs. The breakfast buffet was wonderfull. We didn't have time to experience the pool or beach because we were doing all day trips and only rested at night. It would have been nice since it was so hot to try the very nice pool out.
