10/10 Exceptional

This is paradise on earth! We were lucky enough to stay in a superior water front room and it was just amazing. We have traveled a lot but often find it hard to find a hotel that delivers on all aspects, this is one of those rare gems. The hotel is beautifully designed so there is plenty of space, the rooms and garden layout are very cleverly thought through so it feels very private and exclusive. The rooms are modern with a rustic chic twist and the cleaning team do a wonderful job at keeping everything immaculate without really being noticed. We are not art enthusiasts but enjoyed finding the quirky art pieces in unexpected places. The food was consistently excellent, and the staff couldn’t have been more helpful and personable. The local town is a 10 minute walk offering great shopping and restaurants (though we didn’t need to eat there as we were so well catered for in the hotel). The Pelagos water sports centre (associated with but not owned by the hotel) is hugely impressive and we used their boats twice in the short time we were there, they were so professional with immaculate equipment and very knowledge and safety conscious staff. We will definitely come back!!!!

Fantastic property, very clean and excellent staff. Location is very close to a little strip of good restaurants which are nice to visit if you would like some variation from the hotel restaurant (which are both lovely), and a relatively short walk into Agios Nikolaos itself which has a wider even more bars and restaurants. The grounds of the hotel are well maintained, the setting on the coast is beautiful, and even though the property is close to the local town manages to feel very seculded. The hotel bar serves wonderful cocktails, which the staff put a lot of effort into ensuring are beautifully presented and on most nights there was a great DJ that played very melow music which added to the hotels ambience without being distruptive. I'd highly recommend this hotel to anyone and will definitely be visiting again.

Fantastic hotel, highly recommended
We had the most wonderful stay for our Honeymoon at the Minos Beach Art Hotel. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and they were incredibly friendly. We had a slight issue in that the original bungalow allocated to us had only a partial sea view when we had booked a sea view and it was sorted straight away, moving us to a different room and offering us a free meal in the fabulous Bacchus restaurant. The rooms are minimalist and cool, our balcony with the sea view was gorgeous. Beach and pool area are great with plenty of space for lounging. We did one of the free yoga classes with Maria which was excellent. We also had a massage in the spa-highly recommended and very relaxing. Great breakfast selection and amazing meal for my birthday in the Bouillabaisse restaurant. A cake was even sent to our room which was such a lovely touch. Special mention to Alexandra and Katerina at the front desk who couldn’t have done enough for us. We will definitely be back

Minos is the first hotel we've ever gone back to for a second trip, and it didn't disappoint. Beautiful location, superb staff and delightful gardens to unwind in. Special mention to Caterina on reception, who surprised us with the same room we stayed in (and loved) last time; thanks to Roula who kept our room spotlessly clean; and to Yiannis and Stavros behind the bar. Can't recommend the hotel enough – a glorious spot to watch the sun rise each morning, and then relax for the rest of the day – with a host of restaurants within easy walking distance. Thank you – I'm sure we'll be back (again).

we had a few minutes of disappointment when we realized that the room we booked was not the one on the picture but we upgraded it and got what we wanted... all was great except for the water sport / boat rental at the end of the resort. Not so friendly lady there (lacking patience) and charged us every penny she could! not recommended). but the resort was great ;)
