Another great vacation at Amirandes. The hotel building is just beautiful with great indoor and outdoor facilities. The rooms are very good and are kept spotlessly clean from housekeeping. We had a family suite with a master bedroom, a living room that converted to a separate 2 beds room for the kids and a bathroom with 2 sinks, bathtub for two and a separate shower, so quite convenient for the 4 of us. Housekeeping had the room cleaned while we were on breakfast, so room was spotlessly cleaned when we returned to get ready for the beach or pool. The sea and beach in front of the hotel are very good, especially when there is no wind. Although it’s tough to avoid wind in August, we were lucky and had 3 days that it was just perfect with kids loving to build castles in the sand. Swimming pool is simply great and the Elixir spa offers very good services. Food and drinks are perfect and as you expect them from a high quality resort. For one more year what really made the difference is the people who will welcome you and make sure you have the best time possible. Special thanks to the entertainment team (Kostas, Niki, Charoula, Giouli, Mathilde and Martina, Mathilde), and Mrs. Polina and Mrs. Anna. On top of this, the Amirandes team is committed to listen and find ways to always improve; Grecoland facilities were renovated and there was no phone installed anymore to contact the team. This created some insecurity in terms of communication if something was needed or there was an emergency. We shared the feedback and the full team including the hotel manager mobilized and made sure that phone and wifi were installed. Net-net for us it was great! We are looking forward to visiting again!

I stayed at Amirandes Grecotel for 5 days mid August. I travelled alone to have some time by myself and recharge my batteries. The Hotel did not only meet my expectations, but exceeded them Everything was perfect by all means. The room good value for money with small gym and private pool. Very clean every day with lots of towels for the room and the beach. The breakfast buffet, as well as lunch and dinner was very rich and tasty. I visited the italian restaurant one night with fine dining cuisine experience. The Hotel, from what i saw, has a lot to offer to families with children as well as to couples (tennis, mini soccer etc). I left the most important part for the end. The people! the staff was amazing!!! Super polite and willing to make my stay as comfortable as possible!!! They were very polite in a truly genuine, non formal way, making me feel as home!!! Special thanks to Jenny from the Reception for her info about the island and professional handling of my stay! Definitely going to be back again!

This is one of the best 5 star hotels. We fully recommend it due to the following reasons: (1) The quality of the customer service is outstanding! The staff is very welcoming, accomodating, flexible and friendly. They are always ready to help. All speak very good English. (2) Offers a great variety of high-quality food: from a very refined cuisine style (Michelin level), to a very nice simple day-to-day menus for the family. The prices are excellent, you pay far less for what you get, when compared to other countries where we have been. (3) The proximity to the airport is practical. Unlike other 5 star hotels, this one is only 20 Mins away from the airport. The hotel offers the service of being picked up and dropped off in the airport. This is priceless!! Particularly during high-season. You avoid the crowds. (4) Impressive & beautiful hotel: Private villas with their own pool. Clean & private beach, nice swimming pool, lovely gardens, many restaurants within the hotel. Tennis courts, football area, indoor and outdoor gyms, spa, etc. It is useful to have a grocery shop, stores to buy clothes & shoes. All in one place. NOTE: The kids club with plenty of fun activities was extremely useful. There is a pharmacy service, and free-of-charge doctor’s appointments 2x per day. These saved the day. We cannot recommend it enough. It is definitely a winner!

I have been to Grecotel with my boyfriend and his family. We enjoyed the hotel, food and beach a lot. Because we are both sportive persons we at first were sad that the gym was closed due to COVID. But then we tried out the individual trainings offered by Niki and Kostas. And it was amazing! They are both extremely friendly and talented teachers. Overall We had a great time at the hotel with sports and chilling at the beach which were absolute highlights for us.

We visited Amirandes Hotel and stayed for 10 days. This was one of the best holidays we ever had!The hotel has a lovely private beach and an enormous pool. Also a large playground for children and lots of activities to keep them occupied during the day and in the evening. The food for superb. Great variety of both meat and fish dishes (different every day). The hotel is close to the airport and to the Ancient Knossos. And the hospitality of all the staff was out of this world! We have been looked after like family! We will definitely return to our beloved Crete and wonderful Grecotel Amirandes!
