    Location 5.65 /10

    From its rocky promontory, the Minos Palace overlooks the city of Aghios Nikolaos, across from Mirabello Bay. Located on a peninsula, it is located less than 1.5 miles from the city centre (a 20-minute walk, approximately). For transfers between the airport and the hotel, you should anticipate less than an hour (40 miles).

    Accommodation 8.20 /10

    Of 148 rooms, 94 are standard rooms. They are spacious and bright. The decor is simple but of good taste, with marble floors and beautiful furniture. All rooms have air conditioning, well-stocked minibar, safe (for a fee), satellite and telephone with direct international access. Bathrooms are spacious and feature a tub with shower, built-in sink with marble top, and toilets. The hotel offers guests some welcome toiletries, robes, beach towel, make-up mirror, hair dryer, and scale. All rooms have direct (72 rooms) or side (22 rooms) sea view. To enjoy the view, you can relax on one of the large balconies or terraces, equipped with a bench and wooden patio furniture.

    Overview 7.95 /10

    Built in 1981 and periodically renovated, the hotel is set in a park of several acres. The main building (2 to 4 storeys with elevator) is in a U-shape around the pool area. It overlooks the Mediterranean with a magnificent view. The solarium also offers tents, parasols, and wooden deckchairs, as well as a 1,614 feet˛ seawater swimming pool. All common areas open onto this central space: lobby, restaurant patio, and bar patio. However, there is a slight drawback: This exposed location can be very windy. The back of the hotel was arranged into Mediterranean gardens down to the seashore. They are well-groomed and feature numerous alleys and small stairs. Last, you will enjoy two tennis courts near the hotel entrance, next to the parking area.

    Food and drink 7.45 /10

    The hotel's main restaurant is only open for breakfast and dinner. The setting, with bay windows everywhere, opening onto the sea, is very pleasant. In season, if it is warm enough, all tables are set on the outside terrace. The arrangement of the buffet room is such that lines cannot be avoided at rush hour. The restaurant serves classic international gastronomy with a large choice of dishes and, twice a week, a theme buffet. In addition to buffets, you can also order from the menu (with a supplement). Lunch is served at Taverna Asteria, in the middle of the Mediterranean gardens, between the hotel and the beach. The menu includes international classics, as well as a wide range of Cretan specialities. In addition, once a week, the tavern organises a Cretan evening (with supplement for half-boarders). Last, you can also order sandwiches from the pool bar.

    Beach 7.95 /10

    The beach is accessed after a stroll down the Mediterranean gardens. It is a small 3,228 feet˛ cove covered with golden sand and rocks, only accessible to the hotel guests. Overlooking the beach are solarium terraces with (free) deckchairs and parasols. On one end of the beach is the hotel's boating club. There, you can enjoy waterskiing, jetskiing, canoeing, as well as banana, ringo, and scuba-diving (for a fee). If you are hungry, no need to go back to the top of the hill: the beach offers a snack bar with a terrace, in a pretty environment.

    To know

    If you can afford it, take advantage of the hotel's beautiful suites with private 430 feet˛ swimming pool, personal mobile phone, hi-fi system, dressing-room, Internet connection, hammam, and whirlpool bath.

      Overlooking the sea, the Iberostar Mirabello Beach Village shines like a new penny under the Cretan sun, and the manager makes sure that it does on a daily basis! Not far from Aghios Nikolaos, guests can peacefully enjoy all the activities and amenities that are available here for adults and children alike. If you are looking for traditional architecture though, you should look elsewhere as this is a spacious, stylish and modern property. Efforts made to improve this place are evident, especially concerning the recently equipped beach.

      • Location 4.1

      The Club Almiros Beach is classed as 'Syrtaki' by the tour operator Heliades, which means that entertainment there is gentle. Although the team's enthusiasm is good to see, it cannot detract from the obsolete character of the hotel and its lack of facilities, including the basic, under-equipped rooms and the cramped restaurant area without a terrace, among other things. The only positive aspect of this place is the beach!

      Surrounded on three sides by the sea, the Minos Beach Art is a cosy boutique-hotel with a rich history and the first hotel to have opened in Crete. Designed to resemble a small village, it benefits from its ideal location and lush but well-kept vegetation. You will also be pleasantly surprised to discover a gallery of stunning outdoor statues here, however, although the establishment is comfortable, the atmosphere can become a little outdated and the cuisine is sometimes disappointing.

      A good compromise between a city hotel and the services offered by a club hotel. It is obvious that the facilities are not exactly new, but as a whole they are very well-maintained and numerous, which should please both those who like the comfort of a seaside resort as well as those who like their sport (a special mention goes out to the gym). The lodgings are decent but try to avoid the rooms with a view over the city (which is not exactly the most appealing) and keep in mind that there are family rooms available.
