We have just returned from our 4th visit in 4 years, and whilst we still love the hotel, ground, staff and service, have a few small niggles that will probably make us give the hotel a miss for a couple of years. The grounds and pool are lovely, but the sunbeds are getting rather old and many are broken on... More

We liked every aspect of the Minos Beach hotel. There wasn’t anything that we didn’t like. The staff, the location, the beautiful scenery, the gardens, the rooms were all excellent. It has to be one of the most attractive hotels we have ever visited, set in exquisite scenery. I particularly liked the art work around the grounds, which served as... More

Had an amazing 5 nights stay at this hotel! It actually felt like a boutique hotel as at times you can find the beaches to yourself and as each room is like a little house, guests weren't on top of each other. Lots of privacy, great Cretan food and really well located near the Cretan Olive Oil Farm, nearby beaches... More

This was an early season stay and even though all of the restaurants were not yet open it was superb. The excellent rooms were set throughout the gardens which incorporated many art installations, with views over the bay at Agios Nikolaos and over to the mountains. The private beaches were a bonus. We had a birthday while we were there... More

Had a wonderful stay at the Minos beach art hotel. What a special place. Views fantastic food good and very clean and tidy. My only complaint would be the daily charge for bottles of water at nearly £4 pound. Come on guys I know it's 5 star but least drop the price for rehydration..

We had the most perfect 3 nights at Minos Beach Art Hotel. We felt pampered and well rested. We did not have a booking, and intended only staying for 1 night then moving onto another town, but after seeing the suites and facilities we decided to stay for the remaining time in Crete. The staff went out of their way... More

We had a beautiful room with veranda near the water. Service was excellent; restaurants were all excellent; breakfast buffet was excellent. Swimming was fantastic. The only annoyance were other guests determined to reserve beach chairs for their sole and exclusive use despite hotel policy to the contrary. The hotel did nothing to stop this going on.

Stayed for a week, last week of September 2016 - booked a Superior Bungalow with private pool. The hotel was full and often is so I was hoping for an upgrade, and got one too, up to an Executive Villa with pool. Also paid extra for full board as did not expect to be leaving the hotel very often. That... More

We returned this year having really enjoyed our stay in 2015 and 2 friends came along because we'd raved about it so much.

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
