I have recently just come back from a weeks holiday at the King Minos Palace. Overall the hotel is lovely! I would recommend it if you are looking for a quiet relaxing holiday. The positives of this hotel far out weigh the few negative aspects.
I will begin with the positives; the rooms were very clean and well kept (beds were relatively comfortable). The rooms were cleaned everyday included new bedding and towels each day. The pool area was clean and a relaxing atmosphere to be around. The pool bar serves drinks and food throughout the day - a good choice and excellent staff (George in particular). Breakfast had plenty of choice (contential, cooked & pastries etc). Dinner was a good selection of Greek food (perhaps not child friendly but this didn't affect our party) the staff in the restaurant area are very polite and attentive in particular (Stella). The staff on reception are very friendly and were able to answer any questions we had.
The negatives to this hotel; the plumbing in the bathroom was odd. There was a drain in the middle of the bathroom floor, whilst showering this additional drain foamed up and made the floor wet and dangerous. The only other downside to the King Palace Minos is the entertainment programme. There are a married couple who reside at the hotel called 'Animation'. Both members of staff are a huge disappointment to the hotel and bring the overall feel of the hotel down. The day to day activies were the same each day and the eveing entertainment was not to standard for a 4 star hotel. The Animation team often looked bored and un-interested to the extent where they were yawing during the evening entertainment and looking at their watches for when it was due to end! Such a disapointment.
Overall this hotel was fantastic and I would definetly stay again! (Just be careful if you have mobility problems as the hotel is on a hill with large steps to the entrance - this can be overcome though!)
