Well first things first: this hotel is stunning, just arriving at the entrance of the hotel in its rustic but still modern architecture was breathtaking. With looks over the "lagoon" we were greeted by one of the staff members, she was polite, efficient and happy to welcome us to the hotel. As we arrived a bit before our supposed check-in time not both rooms were ready at the time. This of course is no issue, as the hotel was really well booked for this time of the year. After geting escorted to our rooms we were told that the 2nd room (which was right next door) had 2 single beds. After checking by the cleaning staff, we got confirmed again that this room had 2 single beds. Upon entry 45min later there was, you guessed it, a double. Again not a huge problem but still kind of weird for getting it confirmed twice. The restaurant employees were phenomenal! Stavros from the breakfast buffet was extremely attentive and well trained with a smile on his face at all times. Every morning he brought out the right order, without even taking it. Not something you regularly get.. Also the bar employee Marilena (or Alexandra as we called her) were superbly friendly, attentive and lovely to talk to. Now to our personal highlight: Kosta & Niki - the two fitness Instrutors & promoters. With Kosta we really became friends as he was by far the most open, friendly and at the same time funny guy we met in Crete! He was always there for a joke, played volleyball with us at 11:30 every morning and was just fun to talk to! We all are really glad we met Kosta and already set up a meeting in our vacation (as he coincidentelly travels to the same destination) This guy was the reason our trip is memorable for the most part! If anyone goes to Grecotel - check out Volleyball at 11:30 :D & tell Kosta you came from the Helmet Gang As for the not so pleasing part: the hotel was although the rating says something completely different, not as clean as I wished it to be.. there were crumbs all over the floor, hair in the shower and just not a "clean feeling" comming back to the room, after having a chat with the Guest relations manager this quickly got resolved and wasn't an issue any longer. I really appreciate the level of service we got in this hotel! The service and hospitality of every employee at Grecotel Amirandes was impeccable and should be an inspiration for other hotels.

We have just returned from an amazing break at Grecotel Amirandes. The hotel itself is beautiful and tranquil. The food at all the restaurants used top quality ingredients, prepared and cooked with skill (my only negative is the food waste at the Xasteria - everything was so delicious yet no one we saw was able to eat more than half of it so lots of food kept being sent back uneaten - much smaller portions would have been better). All the staff were really friendly and helpful, with a particular shout out to the lovely ladies in the housekeeping team, and to Niki for her excellent yoga /Pilates sessions (Nikki, I am practising my much-improved Crow!). All in all a highly recommended resort. We hope to return!

We visit Crete regularly and love it because of the friendly nature of the people and the great food and sea. I would never have thought to get an Allinclusiv program here - until now after my experience in Amirandes. I have not experienced such great food /buffet and ala cart restaurants deserving of a michelin star/and service almost anywhere in our travels around the world. The slightest concerns were immediately addressed and the attitude of the manager Maria was unbelievable. Thank you so much for everything and expect us again next year🙋.

Stayed in this luxurious hotel for one week to celebrate our honeymoon and we were WOWED. The place is absolutely stunning and the staff are so lovely, kind, helpful and polite. The rooms are beautifully clean, the food was amazing and there is literally nothing I can fault about this hotel, apart from maybe a lack of evening entertainment - only one live singer on one night of the week. However, this was a very minor issue that did not affect our trip very much at all. The activities were brilliant - we done yoga, aqua aerobics, table tennis, tennis and beach volleyball - which were all led by brilliant instructors who were very fun and knowledgeable. In this hotel, you want for nothing. Suitcases brought to your room for you, rooms cleaned and water replenished daily, all needs catered for. You are made to feel like a celebrity/royal! In the buffet restaurant, the second you have finished eating, your plate is cleared and your drinks are always kept topped up. To sum up, I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough to anyone looking to visit Crete. This place is an absolute palace and we hope to return one day as it is by far the best hotel we have ever been to and the best holiday we have ever been on.
