We booked a superior waterfront bungalow for which we paid (through Thomson Holidays) a very hefty supplement. Due to health issues, when originally arranging this holiday, we requested a bungalow close to the dining areas/reception. We followed this request with an e-mail directly to the hotel several days before our arrival. We received a response acknowledging our requests, which had...

My husband and I spent four lovely days in Crete as part of our honeymoon in Greece, and we loved Minos Beach! We were fortunate enough to be upgraded to a bungalow, and we enjoyed every minute. The resort was relaxing, beautiful and private but still close enough to Agios Nikolaos that we could walk around the downtown area, explore...

Spent a wonderful week in beautiful surroundings. The view from our sea front bungalow was amazing, and we enjoyed sitting on our patio overlooking the bay. Everything was perfect, the room, the location, the food, and the friendliness of all the staff. Couldn't ask for more!!

We chose to pay extra for a waterfront bungalow. It was bliss to be able to wake up in the morning and be right o the sea edge. There was no reserving our sunbed as the bungalow had its own sunbeds and umbrella already reserved! My husband enjoyed standing on our own little patio staring at the fish and crabs.(what...

Lovely hotel did not disappoint. Impeccable service, lovely food (did not even try the a la carte throughout the week as the standard menu so good and varied).

Friendly and efficient staff, good rooms (ask for a mattress topper if you don't like firm beds) and the food is first class. Conveniently near Agios Nikolaos, which is slightly more "up-market" than many of the resorts along the north coast. The free wifi works quite well even inside the rooms.

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. 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. ... more   less
