Hotel Review

Not quite on a par with the luxury resorts around Elounda, the Minoa Palace is nevertheless the poshest address in western Crete, and the newest luxury hotel in the area. Its 254 rooms and suites straddle the coast road, connected by a bridge so you don’t have to worry about traffic. Its slightly boxy design is softened by mellow colours, palms and bougainvillea, but the big deal is the beach: Platanias has one of the best sandy beaches on the north coast, with plenty of room for all.
