I did a solo travel to get some rest and relaxation before baby is due. Minoa palace was perfect in every way! I stayed in the wing across the road near the beach and had a private pool. Perfect sized pool and got lots of sun. The rooms were large and well equipped and the food was outstanding! Service was great and staff all friendly and helpful. I was sad to go. I cannot wait to return!
