4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Minos palace is a very nice resort. The staff was nice and the facilities look good. Overall a great experience for a solo traveler but I wish they had more activities for everyone together so I could connect with some new people. I had a 30 minutes massage and it was really nice and relaxing. They even let me use the jacuzzi Althing wasn’t part of the deal. Due to coronavirus the spa was closed so I couldn’t experience it but the rest of the facilities were open. The only down thing I would say is that the dinner staff were so pushy about selling a drink to me and at my first time there they kinda pushed me to get still water. Obviously I could say no after all but it felt really bad to cancel on them and they know how to sell. This water bottle cost €3.30 (!!) not a reasonable price for water. I was really upset and didn’t purchase anything else in dinners after it. I felt used. If you sell drinks to the guests of the hotel that comes for their included dinner I would expect at least to have a menu with prices and details. Also there should be free tap water in the buffet which I didn’t see. So the next dinner I had to go back to my room to drink. That was annoying. Expect for this issue, everything was great! I might go back in the future.

When we arrived, we got an non-renovated room which was not worth the money. After a good chat with the general manager, we got another room which was very nice and worth the price. The hotel is in a renovation phase of all old rooms.

Lovely stay!
Woww! Overall the whole experience was amazing, this hotel deserves much more than it ranked! The facility was beautiful, the views are breathtaking, the location is very good. The architecture and design is a whole new experience in itself. It's very very clean and comfortable, the bed was dreamy. A few small things you should be aware of: If you are expecting a "5-star" service, this may not be the place. It didn't really bother us, but something to be aware of. Staff is not as welcoming (mostly in the reception), but definitely did their job. Staff didn't go the extra mile as expected in these levels and costs. Additionally, in case you are taking breakfast and dinner, expect to have more or less the same food every day. Other than that we really really enjoyed our stay and highly recommend it!
