I had emailed to ask for a free upgrade as it... More

Everything about this places makes you want to relax and enjoy your stay. The hotel facilities, the rooms, the restaurants inspire you and give you a impression that you are staying in a special place. The setup and the design of the hotel are definitely the strong points. Service was very attentive and the food at the restaurant was also... More

This was our first hot holiday for ten years as we are snow ski fanatics and sadly can't do both, but despite my reservations we really enjoyed the change of scene and heat. The holiday was booked by our friends from Vienna as we hadn't seen them for years and usually meet up on active holidays. They had already booked... More

Don't take me wrong, this is a great location with a good hotel. Nevertheless for the money paid , one expects excellent service and outstanding food. Unfortunately, it is quite average. The hotel was half full when we were there so there was no excuse for the staff forgetting to come back to us with a request for extra olive... More

We stayed at the amirandes in August as a family of four. The accommodation, facilities, spa, restaurants, food and service were 5 star deluxe in every sense of the word. If you want to completely unwind in the lap of of luxury then this is the place to go. If you want excitement and to meet people then the hotel... More

I wanted to write a really detailed review, but actually it's not necessary. The main parts of a luxury holiday that I consider to be the most important were met and some extended at the Grecotel: Service, privacy, quiet, excellent food & wine, superior room (which was also quiet, no fellow residents' noises in our room!), stunning views, and complete...

When I first visited this hotel in the spring of 2012 I was captivated by the overall presence and elegance of this hotel. The building design is amazing and the setting is superb, but what really left me with great and lasting impression was the warmth and friendliness of every member of the hotel team that I came into contact...

I spent a weekend with my wife on the Island of Crete in the Amirandes Hotel. The reception was already something special. Wet cold towels were handed, so we could refresh ourselves a bit. The second thing was that you don't only get the key, bo, one of the employees leads you to your room. The room was very nice.... More

My husband and I booked a one week stay through Sovereign, a British tour operator. We were on an a la carte half board which means that breakfast(buffet) and dinner in one of the a la carte restaurants are included. Please let me start by making very clear that the vast majority of staff are very good at what they... More

As everyone else has already mentioned this hotel is amazing. My jaw dropped from the moment we arrived, it's design is beautiful, the staff are wonderful and the accommodation luxurious. We could not fault this hotel, yes the drinks are expensive but they always are in 5 star hotels. There were lots of nice touches, presents on arrival and when... More
