Amirandes Grecotel Exclusive Resort
Amirandes Grecotol is a sumptuous 5-star treat on the northern Crete coast.
Lavish and palatial, the Amirandes Grecotel Exclusive Resort is only a short transfer from Heraklion International Airport and a prime find for luxury-loving families. Architecturally stunning, the refined rooms, sea view villas and bungalows are built around sea water lagoons and pretty, manicured gardens. There’s an Olympic-sized swimming pool with shaded area (plus a children’s paddling pool and indoor heated pool at the spa) and nine restaurants and bars to dine at. All are loaded with highchairs, children’s menus and baby food. If you can manage to drag yourself away from the comforts of this spectacular resort, it’s perfectly located for a visit to the ancient Minoan ruins of Knossos, the lively town of Hersonissos and epic (if somewhat chaotic) Acqua Plus water park.
For You -
The Elixir spa is superb, as is the full beach service of waterside showers, changing cabins, sun beds, towels and umbrellas. With complimentary fruit and water brought to your sun bed, there’s little else to do but relax. Book into a villa and considerate touches such as coolers for your cosmetics will impress. Make use of the brilliant ‘parents’ day off’ – a designated evening a week where resort staff will occupy the children, freeing you up for dinner or drinks in peace.
For Them +
Children eat for free with the resort’s ‘Tasty corner’ – lunch, dinner and treat choices that are created specially for them. The thoroughly thought out Grecoland is a brilliant kid’s club, rendering boredom unthinkable for children aged 3 to 12 year of age. GrecoKids (3 – 6 years) and GrecoJunior (7 – 12 years) offer varied programmes and activities, such as gardening, Greek lessons, and discovery adventures. The tiny tots aren’t left out either – the GrecoBaby package ensures you have everything to keep tiny tots smiling.
