Amirandes Grecotel Exclusive Resort

Impressive villas and residences make this a nice and convenient option for families, close to Crete's main airport. It's quite rare to find accommodations like this with direct beachfront access in Crete.

Stay at Amirandes

Feel the real world slip away with ease from the moment you step into the elegant reception hall and catch your first panorama of the sea shimmering to eternity in front of you. It’s a mesmerising view that will follow you to every corner of this smartly designed beachfront resort. The feeling of serenity and otherworldliness will continue as you wind your way over stone walkways, led by staff members wearing Greek-style togas. Now, relax in your villa. Enjoy the space it affords you and your family. Walk directly to the beach and sink into that shimmering sea. You have arrived and it's unlikely you'll leave the resort for quite a while.


A convenient location is a big advantage of this resort, especially for families with young children. The resort is just 20 minutes from Heraklion Airport. On another note it's only ten kilometres from the island’s only 18-hole golf course.


The property comprises 212 rooms separated into five categories. We highly recommend the villas and residences. These are available in multiple sizes and feature a rarity in Crete - direct beachfront access. For families they're a great choice. Basic rooms and suites are in need of some refurbishment and we don't recommend these.

Who is it for

Families who want an easy beachfront stay with some private space and plenty of things for everyone to do. In particular, it's great for younger children. Couples will find more suitable and stylish accommodation elsewhere on the island.

Facilities & activities

This is a substantial resort with good facilities for all ages, including an Ayurveda spa and heated indoor pool. The hotel boasts several stylish restaurants, including Minotaur, which sits on the lagoon and is home to the owner’s private Picasso collection (note that not all restaurants are included in the all inclusive package). There are plenty of sports facilities and summer activities, like a golf academy and traditional Agreco farm.
