But it's not just the aesthetics that make this resort stand out; it's the abundance of activities that cater to every member of the family. Childcare services are second to none, with professional staff committed to keeping your little ones entertained and safe. Each suite and villa, many of which boast their own private pools, is designed with families in mind, offering comfort and luxury in equal measure.

The resort's child-friendly suites burst with extras that ensure your children won't just be accommodated but genuinely welcomed. From thoughtful touches like child-sized bathrobes and slippers to a selection of games and toys, your child's comfort is a priority here. And for moments of family togetherness, spacious living areas and shaded outdoor terraces mean quality time is irresistibly convenient.

Venturing outside your serene abode, the lagoon pool is like stepping into an aquatic paradise fit for Minoan royalty, a place where families can indulge in cool, crystal-clear waters, or simply unwind on plush loungers while sipping refreshing beverages from nearby cafes.

For the little explorers eager to experience new adventures, the resort is rich with activities. On-site entertainment options include a mini-club that boasts a diverse programme ranging from arts and crafts to movie nights, ensuring that there is never a dull moment. Meanwhile, adventure awaits in the form of boat safaris and fishing excursions, perfect for making lifelong family memories amidst the awe-inspiring Cretan sea.

The resort's proximity to cultural and historical hotspots provides opportunities to educate and inspire. A short drive takes you to the bustling island capital, Heraklion, where families can meander through the cobbled streets, explore the imposing Venetian fortresses, and marvel at the treasures within the Archaeological Museum.

And, of course, a trip to Crete would not be complete without visiting the famed Minoan Palace of Knossos. Here, history comes alive as families walk the same paths as legendary figures, and children can exercise their imaginations with tales of the Minotaur and the vast labyrinth that once contained him.

After a day of exploration and fun, the resort's dining experiences cater to all tastes, from the freshest seafood served beachside to the enchanting atmosphere of dining under the starry sky. At Minotaur restaurant, even the setting is a masterpiece, adorned with genuine Picasso ceramics.

Amirandes Grecotel Boutique Resort ensures a holistic experience that blends leisure, luxury, and learning — all within a majestically designed space that leaves families enchanted and eager to return.
