We booked this hotel for a night before departing on a cruise. Although not exactly in the center, the location was easy walking distance to all the places a person needs to see in Heraklion. The roof-top restaurant and bar provides a great view, and the property is just across the street from a bus stop, so you can avoid the more expensive taxis.

This resort was wonderful. I do not recommend it for the winter time though, because everything is closed. For the summer months it would be great though. During the summer it offers several stores, three restaurants, two bars, three pools, spa services, and a private beach. You wouldnt even have to leave hotel grounds to have a great time.

We have just returned from a 1 week holiday at the Amirandes Grecotel in Gouves, whilst we had a very nice stay in the most fabulous hotel, it should be mentioned that the hotel is located away from any other establishments an it is very difficult to walk to anything out of the hotel, unless you clamber over rocks and up very dodgy steps or a risky walk up a lane. Taxis's are available, but we like to walk whilst on holiday. So with this in mind unless you book full or half board at the hotel, you may go hungry. You can upgrade to the option of half board at the hotel on a daily basis but at €50 per person for a buffet, we thought that this was a bit over expensive.
After all that the hotel is extremely good, the service is second to none and the rooms very luxurious, and all very very clean.

Stunning hotel in mountain location. Perfect for unwinding and relaxing. Hotel owners and staff are extremely pleasant and welcoming, it's just like staying with family. They will give you every assistance needed and are extremely knowledgeable about the island, helping you plan any days out you might like to do. I would recommend prearranging Stelios from the hotel to collect you from the airport as it can be difficult to find. He is then happy to organise a hire car for you which again is recommended to get out to villages, restaurants and beaches. There is a lovely taverna very close but does involve an uphill walk so take appropriate shoes.
