Part of the ever-caring Grecotel chain, the concierge here is meticulous, guest-tailored and impeccable. You will choose this hotel if you have kids, prefer a large cooling pool yet want to dip in the...

Fantastic hotel with superb service and style that also caters for children excellently. We enjoyed our first family holiday abroad with our baby and we're delighted with how well Amirandes caters for babies. All the staff were incredibly attentive and the small touches for families such as special children's lunch zone with baby station takes the stress out of travelling...

We visited the Amirandes with our three boys (1 to 5 years) and had a fantastic stay. The weather was great with a temparature just below 30C and the sea was very warm (warmer than the pool even).

The architecture and layout of the hotel is stunning and it has its own waterfront with beaches, sun chairs and pool areas right next to the sea. Still there are a few things that could be improved and which makes it a 4.5 and...

Our first visit to Amirandes for some winter sun & a celebration for some milestone birthdays and anniversaries. Our first taste of the exceptional customer service the resort offers was the hotel representative waiting for us pretty much as we stepped off the plane.
