My wife and I have been twice to this hotel and had a water room on the last visit it was just the thing for chilling out. Whilst the hotel is classed as 5 star it's close but not there yet. The staff our great and will always go that little bit extra without coming over as being false they treat you as you like to be treated if it's like one of the family and they get to know your and share but if you want it strictly profesional that's what you get.
The setting is great with a view over St Nicholas bay and on Sunday you can even heard part of the church service. Yes the ground are rustic but they are very well kept and lit up at night when you are making your way back to the room .The art work has now weathered and blends into the surroundings. It's a 25 minute stroll into town and 5 euro taxi back. And yes we will return in May 2014 and as always looking forward to it.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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.
