Visionary architecture connected to Cretan culture (Knossos, I guess) is truly impressive, rather unique and reassuringly inviting: an elevating experience. The facilities and the service are excellent, from Olympic swimming pool all the way to clean rooms. The quality of the food (buffet), unfortunately, is very disappointing - even the Greek olives taste very cheap, at breakfast. Perhaps the 5...

This hotel has everything a mid luxury hotel should have. Great food, Great staff, fantastic setting and super service. Don't really understand the negative reviews, but everyone has their own I suppose. We arrived back on Tuesday after a week of being wined and dined in fine fashion. If i was to pick a negative from this hotel, it would...

It is slightly worrying returning to a favourite hotel after a 2 year break in case it has changed, fortunately Amirandes hasn't. The hotel remains probably the most beautiful hotel to look at, whether by day or night. Still when it is busy there is an illusion of calm and tranquillity. The staff here are incredibly friendly and helpful, as...

It's hard to write a review about Amirandes not to look like an advertisement. We are lucky with the weather, that's true, in October could be colder or a little bit windy, but it is not. Simple perfect. Just like our villa with a beautiful view, the great food, and at last, but not least - the staff. They are...

That you have to leave! Fantastic place. Everyone of the staff is so friendly and caring. The layout of the hotel is very open and very stylish. Although food and drinks are pricy it's always served with something complementary. The room we had was fantastic, clean, spacious and with a beautiful sea view. Note that sea view means north facing...

This was our 5th visit to Amirandes and once again it proved to be the perfect summer sunshine holiday. The staff are delightful, courteous and helpful at all times. The architecture is just beautiful and the bedrooms are lovely. We stayed a la carte this time, and enjoyed all the restaurants although Blue Monkey was our clear favourite. Unfortunately the...

I stayed at the Amirandes in August and really enjoyed. From first glance the hotel has it all and the architectural design of the place is really impressive. Disappointingly, the hotel is located within the flight path of Heraklion airport which means you have airplanes passing overhead every hour to two hours. Although it really bugged us to begin with...

This is a fantastic hotel. Nothing is too much trouble for any of the staff they don't mind how late you keep them up in the bar!!! 🍺🍹Rooms are spotless and cleaned everyday and the food is great. Great location too on the beach.
