My girlfriend and I stayed here for three days through the recommendation of a friend. It without a doubt exceeded our expectations and provided everything we needed and more! We meet the owner and operator, Marco, who was very friendly and accommodating. Mariana, at the front desk, was so helpful in getting us a room at 9am after the overnight...

The location is close to the road at one side, and spot on to the beach on the other side. Nice location. Spacious room with a nice view. The manager and the rest of the crew was very helpful. The breakfast was made after your wish. Excellent stay.

We had originally booked a room at Marina Sands Art Hotel but on arrival were surprised to find our room was no longer availble so we ended up at Minerva. This hotel is excellent. The rooms are spacious and contain everything you need including a large fridge with freezer compartment and free air conditioning. The restaurant is great and serves...

After several visits to Minerva beach, I feel that I must write a review. I have enjoyed great salads, home cooking from Mrs Eleftheria and great service from the friendly staff. The owners ( Glimidakis family ) are always giving me a warm welcome.

If i could give the restaurant a zero rating i definitely would. I want to start off by saying we did not stay here we only stopped for dinner. It was the first night in Crete and we decided to find a place randomly instead of checking any reviews first and it was a huge mistake. I genuinely don't know...

Knowing Chania since years, this was my first experience in Agia Marina, some km outside of Chania. The hotel has only 2 stars but it worse more.

We stayed there for 10 days, there was no tv! The rooms were really filthy and dirty! See pictures Even though we had a nice view to the sea. The restaurant was under average, with low quality of food. The staff was always drunk! And at nights no lighting in the alley. Bad value for money

The hotel itself is a bit worn, but the location is great - right on the beach. So loose and broken tiles and worn interior is something you have to live with at this budget hotel. Staff is nice and they make you feel welcome. Cleaning is also good. Sleep is nice, the bed is really soft and comfortable but...

We booked Minerva Beach months in advance, our last stop of two weeks island hopping. We knew we were going to arrive late so I emailed the hotel to let them know our arrival would be 11pm. They said not a problem. After a day of travelling we arrived at 11pm but instead of being shown to our rooms the...
