Excellent holiday in Agios Nikolaios
We all enjoyed our holiday in the Minos Beach Art Hotel. Staff very attentive, rooms clean. Gardens well maintained. Beaches (2) small but plenty of free recliners on the beach and surrounding paved edge of sea settings. Food excellent. Art in the gardens not that impressive. One example was 4 pyramid shaped wooden structures standing 30 foot tall approx covered in barbed wire- living on a farm it was too much like home!

Besotted by the beauty and pampered by the service
We desired a relaxing few weeks in the sunshine with good food and good service. The Minos Beach Hotel exceeded all our expectation. The location is just perfect, private and with superb vantage points. The bathing is good and there are many private spots to just lounge about and relax. Watching the sun go down each evening and change the colours of the mountains across the bay from the bar’s terrace was one of the highlights for us.
The food and drink on offer (we were half board) was very good and there are also some very friendly and very good restaurants and bars in nearby St. Nicholas. The hotel staff are so helpful and friendly and we met some very pleasant fellow holidaymakers from various European countries. We would strongly recommend the resort and in particular the Hotel and have already done so to our friends. We will return many times.

This was an out of season holiday, the resort was not ready for tourist, yet still we had a wonderful time. Room was very comfortable, Hotel staff were very friendly, polite and help full. Hotel owner was there too and he made every effort to welcome all the guests and make sure they are having a good time. Easter Sunday was particularly great since it was a big celebration in the hotel and we felt as a little family celebrating. Hotel was about 15 min. walk to the centre of the town where all the shops, bars and restaurants were. The walk is very pleasant since it can be by the sea side or walk in the main town streets. Do shop, it is much cheaper than London, you have to hackle a bet to get a better discount.

Anniversary in Crete
After reading the reviews on this hotel we were a bit wary as they were mixed thoughts about the place. We still decided to go for it & we are glad we did. The location of the hotel is absolutely beautiful, the bungalow that we had was lovely & surrounded by fantastic foliage & lemon trees (which we picked the dropped lemons up for our gin & tonics) the view, couldnt have asked for more. The food & service was second to none & the staff very pleasant. The grounds of the hotel are again beautiful & with many varied pieces of art. The rooms are kept very clean & again staff very pleasant. Not too far a walk to night life if you want it. Will go back again.
