We stayed here mid October for 1 week on a half board package with baby and had a fantastic time. First of all I have to complement all people that work at this hotel, every single one of them was extremely friendly and helpful. It's rare to find a place with so many people working there where everyone is nice... More

We had a wonderful holiday and very much enjoyed our first visit to Greece (one of many we hope). The hotel grounds are fabulous, they are immaculate and very well looked after. The rooms are spacious and very lovely (as are the pools and beach). Water is provided by the pool and in the room and children were catered for... More

We booked a week at Les Amirandes through Thomson Holidays and couldn't have asked for anything more. The hotel's a 20-minute drive from Heraklion airport, and from the moment you enter the sweeping drive, it takes your breath away. The architecture is stunning (we've never taken so many pictures of a hotel building before). The elegant meet and greet team... More

This is a must to visit, with a wow factor arrival to an entrance with a view through the hotel over water pools to the sea. The building is stunning and a credit to the architect with lots of use of glass, water, stone and fabulous use of lighting which gives a different atmosphere in the evening. Rooms are well... More

We have recently returned from a wonderful eleven night stay at this beautiful, palatial hotel. I tried to keep my review brief but there is so much to say and here are the salient points regarding the experiences we had there: Transfer - only 10 mins drive from the airport and although there are more picturesque parts of the island,...

Grecohtel has beautiful designs and public space. We were so impressed by their Cap Sounio property that we wanted to try another property. This one again is really stunning with infinity pools stretched from the entrance to the sea. The service is excellent. Candles are everywhere at night, very romantic. However in my opinion the location is not optimal, it... More

Our 4th stay at Amirandes, and it won't be our last! The staff are one highlight from a manager with a high profile to the porters and gardeners everybody is friendly and welcoming. Since our last visit they have introduced a "floating dock" for that special meal, and it was! Also the sunbeds on the grass now have a very... More

We always try to find high quality resorts with good rooms, pool, beach, restaurants and service and the Amirandes ticked every single box.
