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.

On the beloved island of Crete between Gouves and Malia, the dazzling new Amirandes, Grecotel Exclusive Resort hotel …More
Ideal for a relaxing sea-and-sun holiday, this friendly, purpose-built, family resort offers a good selection of low-cost hotels and apartments, and lies 17 kilometres east of Heraklion. The local sand beaches have sunloungers, parasols and water sports. The main strip offers a handful of tavernas (some with live music) and bars, but night-time entertainment is generally hotel-based. The Star Beach water park is nearby in Chersonissos.
