The hotel was very comfortable and nicely set-up. The service was fantastic- especially Stephanie. The beach was nice, and the breakfast buffet had a lot of variety- but nothing overly delicious. Would be happy to stay here again if looking for a place near Chania but outside the bustling town.

I stayed at this resort for a week in early October 2016 to attend a conference. The Minoa Palace really is a 5-star beach resort. Rooms are large, all have balconies, and some have private pools. There are two large outdoor pools plus the beachfront. The grounds are beautifully landscaped and cared for. Food is available from 4 or 5... More

Rooms are spacey and comfortable, and there is a little balcony. As we were celebrating anniversary wine, cake and fruits were already in the room upon our arrival. Breakfast was excellent, really high level. The... More

I've been there in late September, 2016 with a group of 15 friends and we had a great stay! Rooms are large, furnished and clean, some (at a premium price) with a little private pool inside. Breakfast is 5 star and position is perfect in this area, just a km outside from the crowdy center of shops. Ok, sea is... More

What a fantastic place to stay.... good food, excellent accommodation, lovely staff, brilliant facilities, easy access to beach providing comfortable sunbeds. Half an hour into bustling Chania town centre by taxi. Had a wonderful relaxing week and would recommend it to all who want to chill out.
