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

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
