Travellers' Choice
Minos Beach art hotel has been influenced by the traditional architectural style of fishermen’s villages of Eastern Crete. One storey, whitewashed bungalows and villas with terraces and minimal interiors are almost touching the sea. The unique environs of the hotel with its sumptuous gardens and narrow stone paved streets host the 45 works of Greek and foreign artists. In the eastern part of Crete, only a ten-minute walk from the town centre of Agios Nikolaos and a 45-minute drive from the airport of Heraklion. Exquisite decoration features, minimalist forms and Feng-Shui elements enriched by the Greek aesthetics of cotton and wood, handcrafted details, candles and water syntheses, create unique spaces and corners, making your stay in Minos Beach unforgettable. For a truly VIP experience at Minos Beach, we offer one presidential villa and three executive villas with private swimming pools, as well as exclusive bungalows that are literary “caressing” the sea.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A very enjoyable weeklong stay!! I loved the service, the attitude and graciousness of the entire staff.. The rooms were, B+/A- the living room in our 2 bedroom suite, should have been built a bit larger and better furnished. It was sparse and cold, the concrete of it all.. The outdoor space was brilliant, and the property was large, spacious but not so big you couldn't experience it all, over a few days visit... The food, the food was terrific. Front dest and management were fantastic, and them going out of their way to actually dive and find our friend's wedding ring.. I mean they impressed me. SO service gets a major A++.. Food A+... Vibe A+.. Property A+ Rooms B+/A- Cleanliness A+... Spa A... the spa impressed me because they really tried and succeeded in fixing the BAD treatment /Massage our friend received for free.. Overall I give the hotel a very strong A, like a breath away from an A+!!

Hotel's Favourite
We stayed at Minos Beach Art Hotel for a week. I did an enormous amount of research before booking from Australia. We stayed for a week at both the Acro Suites and Minos Beach. Although you cannot compare the accommodation nor hotels both were perfect. I think one of the most important things to do when booking is really research what you are looking for in your holiday as far as accommodation goes. Minos Beach Art Hotel is spread out over quite an area of land and has different accommodation options. I was so pleased I read through previous reviews as we chose the bungalow option right on the waters edge. This bungalow has been recently refurbished and the styling is excellent. The room, ensuite and WIR with balcony right on the water was just stunning and perfect for us - our own private little piece of paradise. Think boat on water vibes with a full moon thrown in. Just a note that not all the accommodation has been refurbished and just make sure you are booking exactly what you want and I would recommend phoning and speaking with the lovely reception staff to get all the latest information. We dined almost exclusively at Terpis nearer to our accommodation and the food and service was 10/10. It was absolutely amazing, faultless. The staff also really made our holiday. They were all just so caring, authentic and kind. The spa was also gorgeous and the staff were friendly and caring. Maria was great and both my daughter and I enjoyed a really relaxing massage and facial. Maria has great hands and is very professional in her technique so I can highly recommend. Probably the only area I feel the hotel could improve is the gym. We are daily gym people and the equipment really does need an upgrade and the area refreshed. I feel it would be great to have more equipment, new weights, mats and a bigger area to house the number of users in the high season. All in all we had a fantastic time and will definitely be back. Thank you.

My poor rating is due to the room my fiancé and I stayed in. BE WARNED of room no. 104 - it sits somewhat outside the hotel grounds next to a weathered caravan, plastic kids' toys, and laundry racks. We got to see what gets hidden from the other hotel guests: mainly bags of laundry and empty bottles collected over the day and stored alongside the back wall for other hotel guests but in plain sight for us. The room itself was shockingly bad and disappointing. The photos online showcasing the room were a complete facade, we clearly got screwed over. Please see the photos attached, you'll see what I mean - a mix of old (mirrors, TV, nightstands, and lamps) with new pieces (clothes rack and kitchenette) - it felt wrong for a design hotel to offer these rooms to guests. The "kitchen" had nothing in it to use so in reality it was completely useless. The complementary wine bottle was forgotten but delivered upon us asking for it on the second day. The welcome flowers were left on our bed completely wilted. We also were told to expect a surprise as the trip was our in celebration of our engagement but no surprise was delivered. The description of the room was very much misrepresented. Had we known we would have booked a different room or a different hotel as we feel we didn’t get what we paid for. Such a shame. The worst part is that after politely giving feedback they ignored it, said they would get back to us the next day, and never did. We even emailed them afterward to express our disappointment and they never followed up.

We had a wonderful relaxing and quiet week staying in this very peaceful and serene hotel. On arrival at the hotel we were immediately met by staff who whisked away our luggage and guided us towards the reception. We immediately felt like we were relaxed and on holiday after our 40 minute taxi ride from the airport. We had a very modern bungalow right on the water's edge by one of the small sandy beaches. The layout of the hotel is very discreet with the bungalows dotted about amongst art work and greenery. The main restaurant and pool are only a short walk from the sea. There are plenty of sun loungers on stone jetties overlooking the sea, each with their own ladder to easily climb into the water. The spa is quiet, clean and relaxing and we had a very relaxing massage there. The main restaurant was not too busy and there was plentiful amounts of tasty food beautifully presented in the buffet area. The service was attentive and dishes cleared away promptly. We also eat in the Terpsis restaurant which was a lovely setting with delicious food.We used the gym, which is small but adequate and also walked into the local town, which the hotel is on the outskirts of. Certainly if you are looking for a quiet and relaxing holiday, this is a wonderful choice. We also loved all the art work spaced throughout the hotel and in the gardens. We went in later October and the weather was around 28 deg each day and the sea was refreshing to swim in.

I'm traveling a lot alone and I've been in many hotel enjoying me time. Minos Beach Art Hotel was definitely the best. Arriving at the hotel, i was immediately impressed from the service they provided me! A tall girl came onto me to welcome me and confirm my reservation. She had a big smile and "didn't let" me carry my suitcase, she just carried them to the entrance herself. After my check-in Vasiliki, (from guest relations) showed me around the hotel and i have to say it is a big hotel. The room was breathtaking and very clean. Nothing bad to say about Minos Beach Art Hotel and especially the food and its friendly staff. You feel like a celebrity in this hotel and everyone actually treat you like you are one. Highly recommend this hotel and definitely coming back!
