Dear Richmond238, Thank you very much for sharing your holiday experience with us. We are delighted to read that you have had an enjoyable and relaxing stay in our Resort. We are always pleased to assist our guests upon arrival or during their stay, in order to find the perfect accommodation type for them where they will feel comfortable. Please kindly note that the there is no older part as the hotel was completely rebuilded in 2007. Moreover, with 7 restaurants for lunch and dinner, we offer a great choice for everyone. At the end of the season, you are right, that there are also evenings where most of our guests prefer to go to the main restaurant to enjoy the buffet selection. But our staff creates always a warm atmosphere in our a la carte restaurants and makes a continuous effort for personalized service and through extensive training we try to improve day by day. We truly welcome and value your comments as direct feedback helps us always to try harder in order to exceed your expectations and provide exclusive luxury service and we hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you back soon. Kind Regards, Georgios Skoulaxinos General Manager

We stayed with Amirandes with a Luxury Escapes booking, which was worthwhile booking through them. The hotel itself was excellent: bigger than expected, beautiful hotel and views, and fantastic service. While the beach isn't as 'flat and clear' as some nearby, we loved swimming

Dear Angela C, Thank you very much for your kind comment and for sharing your holiday experience with us. We are delighted to read that you have had an enjoyable stay in Grecotel Amirandes. In September the weather is wonderful and the sea is warmer than in June. But it is also always the perfect month to discover the island and to enjoy the amazing beaches of Crete. We hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you back soon. Kind Regards, Georgios Skoulaxinos General Manager

Hello. Yes it is possible to swap for credit to dine in the a la carte restaurants and the amount you get back is about €20 per person (when we were there) but you should reconfirm on the amount in case they change it recently.

No but the concierge will help you with taxi wich is very cheap. Taxi to Hersonissos would cost less than 8 pounds each way.

Are there many places to walk to from the hotel?
There is a coast walk which is not very exciting but some nice inns along the way. The hotel is nice and you dont need to leave unless you want to.

Is there plentiful vegan (no meat, dairy, egg, seafood) options available?
I don't think that options are plentiful but staff will ensure that you are well fed. They were excellent with dietary requirements but probably best to contact them before you go to ensure that you're well looked after.

"The upgrade to have a garden view was well worth it, with deck chairs to relax outside the room."
"The Lagoon view is impressive at night."
"Rooms 307-318 on the higher floors."
"Our room overlooked the tennis courts on the second floor."
"All rooms a great but a sea view would be the ultimate. We had a garden view king."
