King Minos Palace details
With a peaceful setting close to the beach, and a great approach to service, it’s not surprising this place scores so highly on TripAdvisor.
The King Minos Palace is terraced into a hillside, just a couple of minutes’ walk from a sandy beach. But it’s not just the location that makes this place stand out from the crowd. It looks the part, too. Its pastel-washed cubist buildings peer out from a thick blanket of trees. Lawns are dotted with palms and cypress trees, while the pool area comes with a wraparound terrace and a roomy arrowhead-shaped pool.
Step inside and you’ll find a modern lobby. Kitted out with comfy chairs and dark-wood coffee tables, it strikes the perfect balance between smart and homely. The same vibe continues into the bedrooms. Accessorised with light-wood furniture, they’re stylish and comfortable at the same time.
Elsewhere, there are two restaurants. Expect Greek buffets, themed evenings and show cooking at the buffet restaurant. As for the à la carte, it serves international favourites alongside local dishes.
Lastly, there’s the entertainment. Things like volleyball, water aerobics and water polo are all on the menu during the day, while evenings see occasional live music and folklore shows.
