Overview

Styled like a historical Minoan Palace, Grecotel Amirandes is an elegant beachfront resort that delivers family-friendly luxury. The Olympic-sized pool, spa complex and scenic beachfront are popular with adults, whilst children can enjoy an array of exciting activities and facilities. With six stylish restaurants – including one which displays a private collection of Picasso originals – you can enjoy a variety of cuisines during your holiday.

Located in the quiet area of Kato Gouves, Grecotel Amirandes boasts a peaceful setting with palm-fringed stone walkways and gardens outlined by sprawling lagoons, just under 10 mile’s distance from Heraklion Airport. The hustle and bustle of Heraklion’s centre and the iconic Minoan Palace of Knossos are around 12 miles away. You can also visit the closest developed town of Hersonissos, which is under four miles away – or tee off at the Crete Golf Course, which lies about five miles away from the resort.

The elegant accommodation exudes an earthy vibe, decorated with neutral tones. Standard features include flat-screen TVs, minibars, tea and coffee facilities and furnished outdoor spaces with garden or sea views. In bathrooms you’ll find a separate tub and shower, plus organic toiletries, bathrobes and slippers. Choose between Superior and Luxury Rooms or spacious bungalows and suites. Some accommodation includes a private pool, and Luxury Rooms have more space. Family Suites are even larger, offering a private pool and sliding doors between the living and main bedroom areas.

Amirandes restaurant serves an extensive breakfast and dinner buffet. Minotaur restaurant is an a la carte affair boasting spectacular lagoon-views and a fixed menu of modern Italian dishes. It’s here that you can admire original ceramics by the Picasso. For alfresco dining and a contemporary twist on East Asian cuisine, try Blue Monkey. Head to Xasreria for local Cretan food which is made with organic ingredients or enjoy a light lunch at Petrino, the resort’s alfresco, speciality seafood restaurant. For a candlelit meal by the waterfront, don’t miss Lago di Candia, a special grill restaurant which appears to be floating on the water. But ensure you make restaurant reservations to avoid disappointment.

There are plenty bars and lounges to enjoy fresh cocktails, low-key entertainment and dazzling sunsets. The Sunset Lounge offers an exclusive beachfront setting with calming sea views. Throughout the day, take advantage of By the Pool Brasserie, which is situated by the main pool, and enjoy live jazz music in evenings at the sophisticated Lagoon Bar.

The choice of exclusive restaurants includes those at Grecotel’s Amirandes, White Palace, Caramel Boutique Resort, Creta Palace and Agreco Farms.

As part of ‘The Dine Club’ concept, you can enjoy lunch with a set menu (or a la carte at credit allowance) in Grecotel Amirandes,or dine at the main buffet restaurant (or at a choice of a la carte restaurants with a credit allowance). You’ll also receive two complimentary a la carte dinners in select restaurants at participating hotels, or one free a la carte dinner in Agreco Farms per seven night’s stay. Another key perk of ‘The Dine Club’ is that kids under the age of 14 dine for free and can eat whenever they feel like it. This includes all-day snacks at Grecoland, lunch at the tasty corner and a la carte dining in designated restaurants with unique kids’ menus, including juices and refreshments.

Those seeking a carefree holiday experience can further upgrade to the 'Comfort All-In Package at the hotel (available for an additional charge). This means that you can enjoy 'The Dine Club' offerings, as well as lunch, drinks and snacks throughout the day.
