This is a must to visit, with a wow factor arrival to an entrance with a view through the hotel over water pools to the sea. The building is stunning and a credit to the architect with lots of use of glass, water, stone and fabulous use of lighting which gives a different atmosphere in the evening. Rooms are well...

We have recently returned from a wonderful eleven night stay at this beautiful, palatial hotel. I tried to keep my review brief but there is so much to say and here are the salient points regarding the experiences we had there: Transfer - only 10 mins drive from the airport and although there are more picturesque parts of the island,...

Grecohtel has beautiful designs and public space. We were so impressed by their Cap Sounio property that we wanted to try another property. This one again is really stunning with infinity pools stretched from the entrance to the sea. The service is excellent. Candles are everywhere at night, very romantic. However in my opinion the location is not optimal, it...

Beautifully designed hotel. The main pool is very special, has saltwater and is very clean and nice to swim in. Stayed in a basic room that was ok but nothing more, small shower, noisy air condition and the mini bar was not cool enough. It was however big and clean and nothing missing. The food at the buffet is excellent,...

We came to this resort for just three nights on our 25years late honeymoon/silver wedding anniversary, and it could not have been more romantic or perfect. Our amazing travel agent and friend had advised the hotel of our reason for traveling, and we were upgraded to a 2 bedroom suite with private plunge pool overlooking the beach - gorgeous! We...

We were looking for some guaranteed sun just in the case the British summer did not deliver! Our travel agent mentioned Amirandes and it delivered just as we might have hoped. We were only there for just over a week but in the end that was long enough. I am (slightly) embarrassed to admit we never even made it outside...
