A romantic escape to the serene shores of Crete, with breakfast, dinner, treats for kids and other extras

The Lowdown

Discover the largest of the Greek Islands with a stay on the sands of sunny Crete, an isle fringed with beautiful beaches, awash with ancient wonders and peppered with picturesque villages. Amirandes Grecotel Exclusive Resort occupies a prime position on Crete’s north coast, steps away from the dazzling allure of the Mediterranean, which gently laps a postcard-perfect stretch of golden shoreline. This getaway is designed for not just two, but three, Rs: rest, relaxation and romance.
If you can tear yourself away from your spacious room, make your way to the spa, or lose yourself in the Olympic-sized seawater pool. When it comes to drinking and dining, you’ll find numerous restaurants and bars to choose between, offering cuisine from organic local treats to Asian and Italian fare. For some light leisure, you’ll have three flood-lit tennis courts and a Golf Academy at your fingertips. Or, head to the Watersports Center for sailing, canoeing and kayaking.


Superior rooms are chic, spacious and well appointed, with beautiful views over the garden and comfortable king-size beds which provide a romantic retreat after a day on the sands. Superior Family rooms are larger than Superior rooms, with 430 square feet to the former’s 334.


There are a variety restaurants to choose from here, everything from Italian specialties at Minotaur to candlelit dinners on the beach. You’ll also find seafood, Asian and organic Cretan, plus a Mediterranean buffet, as part of the mix, along with a lagoon bar and a bar by the beach.


Amirandes Elixir Alchemy Spa offers a heavenly spa experience. Treatments use extracts from organic plants and Cretan herbs and include Ayurvedic therapies from expert therapists from India. There are a superbly serene indoor pool, relaxation lounges with tea and juices, a sauna and an open-air seafront area for yoga. You’ll find a fully equipped gym here for a workout, too (if you must).


Amirandes Grecotel Exclusive Resort is beautifully located on Crete’s northern coast, along a picturesque stretch of Mediterranean coastline with two sandy coves. The archaeological site at the Palace of Knossos is well within reach. Plenty of fun can be found nearby, including horse riding, Crete’s largest water park, Gouves train ride and the CretAquarium – one of the Mediterranean’s largest marine-science complexes.

Incredible nice hotel with amazing staff: everything is possible, no effort is too much, so friendly, a totally new experience
The food is excellent , tastefull, fresh , plenty of choice and the best quality, the pools are very very clean, the rooms are luxurious and have good and quiet airconditioning. During the day the bring fresh water and fruits (for free) to all the guests at the swimming pools, in the morning and evening live music (incredible saxophone at breakfast today.....)
Very nice and professional Spa, sauna is too small, everywhere big towels for free, as many as you like.
It is just an oasis of very friendly people who have created a new level of friendlyness and hospitality!!!!
All around the best service, such a feel good atmosphere, hard to beat this one!!
Prices are fair only the choice of wines is limited and too expensive.
