Just arrived home from my 3rd visit to this amazing hotel and I am already planning a return visit. What makes this hotel so special is its unique location and relaxed but sophisticated atmosphere. You experience the sights sounds and atmosphere of a seafront location, surrounded by turquoise sea… you drift off to sleep with the sound of lapping waves...

My husband and I booked a trip and stayed at Minos beach art hotel at the end of June. We had a fabulous time, with great weather ( a few windy days) but lots to see and do. The food was really good quality, and the full board option is worth doing if you're going to be at the hotel...

My husband and I enjoyed a very relaxing holiday at the Minos beach. Fortunately we were upgraded to a Junior Suite bungalow (No.43) which was set in lovely gardens within sight of the sea. I can understand why many people have said it is not a 5* hotel - It definitely is not your usual glitzy, all marble 5* hotel....

If you want the latest in bathroom fittings, hotel room blingy or a 21st century approach to food and drink, then best to go elsewhere. Dubai, perhaps.

Perfect setting and lovely gardens. Rooms a bit spartan, at least at level we were in, Waterfront Bungalow. Food is generally very high standard. We had one visit to the Bouillabaise restaurant, but as we receive a credit of only € 15 each for being HB, an expensive dinner, though admittedly delicious. Staff are friendly and attentive, though on one...

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
