Minoa Palace is an excellent example of the Greek hospitality and Cretan food. Very clean, with beautiful gardens, several swimming pools and a well organised beach. At side, there is also an organic garden with seasonal vegetables that are used by the talented chef Yannis Tsivourakis. What makes a difference is the true politeness of the personnel and the professional... More

One of the best hotels I have visited. Friendly staff and Great food. Good pool area. We have three kids, from 6m to 4 years and the kids liked the mini club so much. The village Platanias has a lot of restaurants and some activity for the kids. Hope to visit again soon.
