Just got back from a week at Amirandes and it was thoroughly brilliant. I am 22 years old, my father is 50 and my sister is 19. We were looking for a 5* relaxing beach hotel with a few activities and within close proximity to the airport. We booked through Thompsons- included flights and taxi transfers in the costs. We...

The Amirandes is a very good resort. We stayed there for 5 days in late July August and the the service and rooms were about as good as it gets. The food in the different restaurants was also reliably good with one exception: their version of sushi was a little strange and the nigiri didn't seem to contain sushi-quality fish.... More

We have just returned from the Amirandes and it was a fabulous holiday. The modern design of the hotel was superb and the staff were outstanding. We did have an issue with the room initially allocated but just one visit to reception, with no need for raising voices, and our problem was solved - a room change the next day.... More

This was my 2nd trip to this wonderful hotel and it didn't disappoint. From the moment you drive through the gates, you are taken care of. Our taxi pulled up outside the entrance and we were met by a member of the team who took us through to see the Lagoon and sea view, we were then given cold flannels... More

We spent one week in late July 2014 in Kato Gouves, the Amirandes Grecotel Hotel. We were very satisfied by the hotel room, the services, the breakfast and the beach. Staff is friendly and relaxed, tries to accommodate your needs, although we rarely asked for anything-no need to ask. Hotel room was as one could expect for a true 5*.... More

We visited Amirandes between the 23rd June - 1st July, and cannot praise this hotel and every single member of staff highly enough. Firstly, we were originally quite anxious to visit a hotel of its size, as we usually stay in properties with 100 rooms or less, and have been fortunate enough to stay in other 5 star resorts both...

I am spending since three years one week in July at the Amirandes. It's a fantastic hotel, an unbelievable architecture. The service is near to perfect, friendly staff, always ready to help. The rooms are quite nice, and clean.

Stayed 10 days with wife and 2 small kids. The hotel is more on the romantic side, no good entartainment for small kids. However, dining for kids is well organized, free kids lunch is quite helpful, so no problem. Design is impressive, decorated with plenty of water and stone. Nice outside bar with live music and coctails nighttime. Family suite... More
