We stayed here early June for a week and really enjoyed it. Relaxed atmosphere, no crowded pools etc. Grounds were exceptional. We had a basic bungalow but it was still really comfortable and clean. We had a flexible half board package which meant we could have either lunch or dinner and this worked really well for us - we enjoyed... More

A very good value 5 star hotel. Very friendly and helpful staff. Golf buggy on hand to take you to your bungalow - if required. Wonderful breakfast menu and fine restaurants. The bar run by Takis is a must. He never forgets a face or which drinks you like and how you like them served. Two weeks of bliss!

Rooms very comfortable but stick to showers as never enough hot water to run a proper bath. We went the last week of October and it was... More

Minos Beach Hotel is a large, high-end resort. We enjoyed four days in a beach-side bungalow just steps from the bay. Staff is professional and courteous. Our room was well-appointed, spacious and clean. Our included breakfast buffet had more choices than any we've experienced plus eggs cooked to order and great coffee. We had dinner one night and it was... More

Location Beautiful, landscaped grounds. Stunning location. Unfortunately, private beaches have sparse, gritty sand. Bungalows on the right get the best afternoon sun. Lots of good restaurants around the lake, if you choose the bed and breakfast board option.

Very nice hotel, with excellent beachfront location. Stayed in a beachfront superior bungalow with private sundeck only shared with the neigbouring bungalow. Generally good quality on building and fittings, but be prepared for some small flaws in maintenance. No big issue though. A bigger issue is that the indeed very nice tree outside the bungalow totally blocks all sun to... More

Relaxed, quiet, beautiful resort. Ideal for couples retreat. Spa is fantastic, massage by Marina was excellent, she is a talented and skilled masseuse. Restaurants and bars at the resort are very good, with piano evenings - it was just perfect.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Minos Beach art hotel has been influenced by the traditional architectural style of fishermen’s villages of Eastern Crete. One storey, whitewashed bungalows and villas with terraces and minimal interiors are almost touching the sea. The unique environs of the hotel with its sumptuous gardens and narrow stone paved streets host the 45 works of Greek and foreign artists. In the eastern part of Crete, only a ten-minute walk from the town centre of Agios Nikolaos and a 45-minute drive from the airport of Heraklion. Exquisite decoration features, minimalist forms and Feng-Shui elements enriched by the Greek aesthetics of cotton and wood, handcrafted details, candles and water syntheses, create unique spaces and corners, making your stay in Minos Beach unforgettable. For a truly VIP experience at Minos Beach, we offer one presidential villa and three executive villas with private swimming pools, as well as exclusive bungalows that are literary “caressing” the sea. ... more   less
