Just about to leave and can't rate our experience highly enough. The service has been impeccable from arrival to our leaving gift. The staff go out of their way to constantly deliver. The facilities are as described and of superb quality. The environment is beautiful with different views at each hour of the day as the sun changes. We stayed... More

Amazing architecture. Lots of space on the beach, and the staff very willing to help out at busy times. The beach is private, too. Different types of beach 'accommodation' available. Virtually all of the staff were utterly charming. Speaking some Greek probably helps a lot, but they obviously all speak English, too. Peaceful and beautiful grounds. Breakfast buffet absolute heaven.... More

This is the second time that we've stayed at the Grecotel Amirandes and it has possibly the most consistently good customer service that I've experienced. Any issues or requests that you have are taken care of so quickly, it's amazing. For a relaxing break, I recommend this hotel 100%.

One of the best resorts in maybe Europe!! The stuff is very kind and helpful especially the captain at the pool restaurant Cristos. I've spend a week there and it was an unforgettable experience. Totally worthy. I would strongly recommend it.

We stayed at this hotel June 4th to 10th and had a really nice stay. We were there for our honeymoon, and they upgraded us to a junior suite with a pool. Upon arrival, they had someone waiting in our room with champagne and fruits and a bottle of wine, and had rose petals on our bed and it was... More

Whilst the beach at the Amirandes is not one of the most beautiful, it seems that in Crete, the best hotels are not on the best beaches. There are restrictions to building on the beautiful beaches in the West of the island in order to provide the widest possible public access. Our experience began from the moment we stepped into...

This hotel is a fantastic find, the jewel in the crown, as soon as you walk through the huge reception doors you are drawn into the most spectacular view. Frist class checking in procedure, all very calm and relaxing. Escorted to your room with all the relevant information you may need, fresh fruit, complimentary wine and a very relaxing, comfortable,... More

From the moment we arrived we were treated like royalty. We arrived around 10:00 in the morning and were greeted with a cool towel and wonderful fresh orange juice. Since our room was not quite ready (being so early) we were offered a tour of the grounds and offered breakfast while we waited. After breakfast we returned to finish checking... More

My husband and I arrived here for the first three nights of our honeymoon. We splurged for a sea view suite, but it 100% met my expectations. The rooms, and the full-glass walls with views directly onto the sea, were incredible. We arrived right at sunset, which was breathtaking, and enjoyed the next few nights with equally impressive shows. We... More

We just returned from this fabulous hotel. First, all pictures are real, it´s a great scenery. The top service starts during check in, private, hotel tour including room explanation.
