Recent guest reviews
We would definitely recommend staying at this hotel. The rooms were clean, spacious, luxurious, very comfortable and there was an outdoor balcony with a lounger. The 1/2 board was completely worth the price. It was delicious! The service was quick and friendly. They worked really hard to make sure everything was in excellent condition. It was slightly difficult to find and the wifi was only around the lobby/pool area when we stayed but everything, I mean everything else about this place was spectacular. Who needs wifi anyway when you're staying in paradise? Once you know where to find the place, it's not hard to find again.
spent a good holiday with my family there. Arrived early in the morning. Room was nor prepared yet. Another type of room was proposed (with parking view vs sea veiw as was booked. We refused it and in short time proper room was prepared. Staff is friendly, no issues. Room is big enough with a kitchen facilities, nice sea view. Breakfast was average, nothing special, but our children liked it anyhow. There are a lot of great external food facilities, every night we tried different one. unfortunately, did not get a chance to have a dinner in hotel. Hotel located quote far from the beach and shopping, car or other transport for rent is the must. Swimming pool is very good, our children like to spend time there. While traveling around saw a lot of nice hotels around ,could rate Amazones as good one but nothing special.
We stayed for 1 month on business. We needed to stay somewhere close to the City of Malia. I chose the Amazones because of the great reviews and they were all correct. Especially note worthy was the winter Care Taker Caroline. She went out of her way to make sure our stay was comfortable. She entertained us with movie night, sight seeing recommendations, and billards. Caroline even accomidated our special request for early breakfast. Because of the great experience, I will be bringing my family back for summer vacation.
We spent 4 weeks at the Amazones Suites for business. We found it to be a beautiful location which overlooks the sea from the mountain side. We had a very memorable room which overlooked the pool and a great view of the town below. Most note worthy was the hospitality of Caroline who was the winter care taker. She went out of her way to make sure our stay was comfortable. She consulted us with sight seeing of Knossos, The Pallace of Malia, and the Village of Lota on the east coast - all worth seeing. Miss Caroline filled our extra time with movie night, billards, and information on local eateries and sights.
Excellent place! The view was terrific, and it was only minutes away from two small towns and one larger one with nightlife at all times. Very friendly staff. Room was clean, included a kitchenette, living room, bedroom, bathroom. The pool was gorgeous. Breakfast every morning was an array of pastries, fruits, hot items, fresh vegetables...The staff was very friendly and made us feel at home. Free access to internet to catch up on e-mail. They did have a game/fitness room, but we were so busy we did not check it out. The only "weird" thing for us was that the bed was two twins pushed together. Understandable, and I have seen this at many resorts in the past, but not ideal for a honeymoon. This may have only been our room, and possibly there are double beds in other rooms. Also has a restaurant and bar next to the pool. the pool had the most amazing view of the mountains and city and sea below. We would definitely stay here again.
The hotel was beautiful, the view from our room was breathtaking (we overlooked the town of Chersonnossis), the resort was clean and the pool area was very nice. All of the restaurants were within 10 minutes walking distance from the hotel - we stayed 10 days and ate at different restaurants each night and walked to every one of them. We would have to say that the staff ([...] and [...]) really made our trip that much more enjoyable-they were very friendly and hospitable. We absolutely loved our stay at this hotel and will definately be going back!
We arrived almost at midnight, the staff was very helpful, delivered some food to the room just as the restaurant was closing (3.80 E). The resort is clean and the rooms large, with everything. It is about 25 minutes from the port of Iraklio, just so you know. If you have a car, it is worth the trip, if you are commuting and mostly want to see the sights, it is distant. If you want to kick back and enjoy relaxing, I can hardly think of a nicer place, you don't have to leave the premises. The beach is about a mile away, the resort is on a hill overlooking the sea and is very nice. A little town is only a short walk away. Know that non-smoking is relative in Greece. The hotel staff and visitors smoke like chimneys in the lobby and game room area. Most other areas are free of smoke. Your room may have been smoked in, also, despite the policies. Most Greeks and Europeans in general feel that non-smoking means, no one is smoking in the room while you are in it, or if you leave a window open or stand in the window, it is not "smoking". So if you allergic, ask a lot of questions. If you can deal with low levels of cigarette smell, like in a restaurant, lobby, you may be OK. But rental cars are a whole 'nother story. We enjoyed our stay here and wish we had longer.
Stayed just one night in Crete after booking on Orbitz, and were wonderfully suprised by the gem we found. The hotel is beautiful, away from the city, but right down a stepway is a great little town square with a few bars and restaurants. We got there late at night, walked down and had a great meal. Our room had beautiful views of the ocean, with a balcony, and was clean and comfortable. They also had a fruit basket and small bottle of wine waiting for us. The staff were fantastic and very helpful in showing us where to go in Crete. The breakfast provided was also excellent. This hotel is perfect if you are looking for a gettaway that is romantic and private, but within walking distance to restuarants and a calm (at least the night we were there) social scene. I would highly reccommend this to anyone looking for a nice quiet getaway on their trip to Crete. The town of Piskopiano is somewhat hard to find (make sure you tell people that you are looking for Piskopiano - not Hersonissos), but we stopped several times and asked locals where to go and eventually found it.
