Dear Mr or Mrs.


For several years, we visit grecotel hotels .(as well 4 stars, 5 stars as exclusive resorts)  

It is difficult to compare  hotels: some are more suitable for families, others have other qualities. Last September, we have spent our holiday at Amirandes for the 5th (!) time.

Not only due to its fantastic accommodation, but mainly for the warm welcome.

Grecotel makes huge efforts to make their guests feel at home, but the way they achieve that at Amirandes is outstanding. They really know how to pamper their guests.


The efforts of Mr. Vassilis , the general manager, have an extraordinary effect on all his staff : he has built a fantastic team. I also especially want to mention Mrs. Maria S., George, the ‘ maître’ and the food and beverage manager. They all keep close contact with all guests and deliver wonderful work: they are the one to keep! “It’s not possible” does not exist at Amirandes. It does not surprise me that more people find Amirandes worthwhile coming back.


We have booked a holiday in May: it will be at Amirandes for the 6 th time !!

Dear ladies and gentlemen,

we spend our holidays from 13.06. - 27.06.2011 on Kos Island in the beautiful Grecotel KOS Imperial and would like to inform you about our experience and impressions with this hotel.

After arrival, we have to wait only few minutes for check in - great, because it was no more than 10:30h local time!

The entrance (lobby) and main building is really amazing and of course very clean! All the buildings around, the swimming pool area and the garden are well maintained and our room, really comfortable!

SPECIAL thanks to Mrs. E. S. for the great assistance! She always give us her full support in reference to our requests! :o)

We are looking forward to spend our next holidays in one Grecotel too!


With kind regards

J. M. & H.

Sehr geehrte Frau S.,
wir waren vom 24.09. – 06.10.2008 zum 11. mal in einem Grecotel. Dieses Mal im Grecotel Royal Park auf der schönen Insel Kos. Wir hatten einen sehr schönen Aufenthalt, das Essen und der Service waren sehr gut (wie bei den meisten der bisherigen Aufenthalte in Grecotels). Da auch das Wetter mitgespielt hat, waren wir von daher schon sehr zufrieden. Doch wir haben im Royal Park eine Gästebetreuung kennen gelernt und genossen, wie wir sie in noch keinem Grecotel, aber auch in noch keinem anderen Hotel erlebt haben.
Frau S. U. heißt Ihre "Perle". Sie war als Gäste - Betreuerin allgegenwärtig, d.h. immer ansprechbar und wo es wichtig und von Bedeutung war, immer erreichbar oder gar anwesend.
Sie war stets gut gelaunt, freundlich, kompetent und hilfsbereit. Kurz und gut, wenn "ihre" Gäste sie gebraucht haben, war sie da. Wurden Termine oder Sonstiges mit ihr oder über die Rezeption für sie vereinbart, konnte jeder Gast sich auf sie und ihre Zusagen verlassen. Dabei war es gleich ob sie die Gästewünsche selbst erledigte oder delegierte.
So stellen wir uns eine Gästebetreuung vor, einfach exzellent (vielleicht noch etwas besser). Dies war nicht nur unsere Meinung, sondern wurde uns auch von vielen anderen Gästen bestätigt.
Da Sie sicherlich oft nur kritisierende Briefe über MitarbeiterInnen erhalten, wollen wir Ihnen hiermit unsere Anerkennung für eine solch, gute, qualifizierte und doch stets freundliche Mitarbeiterin aussprechen. 
Wir hoffen, dass Frau S. U. noch lange als Guest Relations Officer, oder in noch verantwortlicherer Position in Ihren Hotels tätig ist und wir sie bei einem unserer nächsten Aufenthalte in einem Grecotel wieder sehen würden.
Mit freundlichen Grüßen
U. & G. S.

It has been a great joy to spend 3 nights at the beautiful Grecotel Cape Sounio as part of our site inspection tour for the 2011 [company meeting]. I would like to thank you so much for your generous hospitality and your warm farewell. My husband … who is a fabulous cook was delighted to receive the Cretan cookbook, the special olive oil and the delicious honey. I can now look forward to some delicious "Cretan" food at home.
On a more serious note, Cape Sounio is a very special resort hotel in close proximity to Athens and the airport. In my eyes the ideal post cruise destination for the [company] incentive.
Nikos, again thank you and I hope to see you again sometime in the future. In the meantime I send you my best wishes for a very successful 2010 season.
Warm regards,
Marketing Manager

Dear Ms. Daskalantonakis,
This is a letter of appreciation. As you yourself wrote in the 10th issue of the G magazine, the island of Crete epitomizes friendship reflecting “….hospitality in the warmth of the land and the generosity of the people.”
Having by now spent the first week of June for 9 years in a row at the Grecotel El Greco outside Rhetymnon, my wife M. and I would like to write and inform you of our excellent experiences for all these years with the staff members of this hotel.
In particular, we have been impressed with the professionalism and generosity of the Maitre Restaurant, Mr. S.V and the Food and Beverage Manager, Mr. M.G, both of whom through their friendly handshakes, welcoming smiles, and hard work have made our stays so memorable. The same goes for the Maitre Luncheon, Mr. G.C, who makes our lunch experiences a wonderful break in the middle of the day. The cook in the lunch restaurant, Mr. Y, generally has an extra surprise dish for us, and served with pita bread his meat is just perfectly grilled. The Captain in the pool bar, Mr. G.A also has made us feel extra welcome, and he usually sends us a CD with Greek music as a gift for Christmas, so that we will be able to start dreaming of our El Greco week in June.
We have also been pleasantly surprised by the general atmosphere all around the hotel, with hard-working and very friendly personnel in most, if not all, locations. The wonderful and well-kept flower gardens all around the hotel are also a special treat to be admired for the guests.
The fact that the staff at El Greco has been the same for so many years is an additional pleasure, and when we arrive each year, it is almost like “coming home.”
These are the main reasons for this letter of appreciation, and I wanted to let you know of how pleased we are with your hotel and its personnel.
With kind regards,
B. Z.

FAO: The Grecotel staff team,
This is only to convey my appreciation for all your efforts throughout my stay recently.
Both my Mum and myself were well impressed by the friendliness, generosity, efficiency and quality of the services made available at the hotel.
Our holidays were simply wonderful and we shall recommend you to all our relatives, friends and acquaintances.
Bless you all and see you next Summer!!

All the best,
MS R. A.

I have just returned today to work having left your hotel yesterday following my honeymoon.  I would like to thank you for your help and assistance in ensuring that I had a very special holiday.  I was most impressed with the courtesy and professionalism of all of the staff at the hotel.  I express my special thanks for allowing me to have a room to change my child also with my late flight.
All staff were superb from check in to porters and cleaners.  I travel a great deal and visit many hotels but in terms of customer service, Creta Palace sets the benchmark.  The owner can rightly be proud of his staff.  Often on a holiday towards the end a person generally starts to feel ready for home but I am really sad to be back as the facilities of the Hotel were superb.
Thank you for a very special honeymoon.
Kind regards,
D., J. and baby S.

To the attention of Mr Yiannis K. ....... and of course all the other meeted people of the Creta Palace,
Kalimera Kriti, Kalimera Rethymno,
Already one week left and notwithstanding the "summer" temperature we get in Belgium (31°C today), we miss certainly the Greek Thalassa, the Cretan Food and the Kindness of Creta Palace's gentle people !
Once again, my wife and I wish to thank you all with heart for the agradable, splendid and first-rate vacations we spent with you !
As well as we are from the so-called "cold" countries , we just agree and share the "Phyloxenia"  mind and principle, ... and we find it of course back in Kriti !
"Efkaristo para poli, Kiries ke Kiris"  we'll never forget you !
 Yassas and good health to al of you
 Hearty & kind regards
C. & J. C. D.   (so-called in Kriti :Y. A.)
Please : Special message to deliver to my friends STELLIOS ( Labyrinth restaurant) and  YIANNIS ( Brasserie Ariadne)

The hotel Amirandes (we spend our holidays in Sep 2008) compared to other Grecotels is outstanding regarding the architectural design. The conception to combine water, stone and wood has been implemented perfectly. The complex seems like 1001 nights (especially by night). The big pool is visually pleasing. You will find a wide range of rooms and suites for every taste and wallet. We liked our room with sea view very much and found other guests echoed this. The whole team, Management, Guest Relations Manager, Reception, waiters and cleaners spared no effort to please the guests. Since opening in the middle of 2007, they have created a brilliant team. Catering (half-board buffet) offers a big variety at breakfast as well as at dinner. For special occasions, you will find, in addition to the main restaurant, other theme restaurants for a fee. The Guest Relations Manager greeted us and explained everything and we found a welcome with a choice of drinks and fruits. Sunbeds, umbrellas, bath robe, safe, beach towels etc. are available free. Our impression and summary of Amirandes and the staff: excellent and recommendable!

Dear Ms. Daskalantonaki,

On the 23rd and 24th May 2008 we had our wedding ceremony and reception at the Grecotel Amirandes hotel.

Please allow us through this email to extend a very big thank you to the General Manager Mr. V.M and his outstanding staff including the F&B Manager, for going out of their way to please us and our guests, and make our wedding a very special and unforgettable occasion. We couldn't have chosen a better hotel in the world to organize our venue! Everything was perfect!

We would like to take a few minutes to praise Mrs. M.Z the Resident Manager who for the past five months has not only met our expectations but has exceeded them by far! From the first moment we contacted her,she made sure that our every little or big 'demand' was met to the fullest. She took care of EVERYTHING, attended our every need in the outmost professional and personal way. She has been in every sense our 'personal wedding oranizer'. Thank you for a 'dream' wedding!

Grecotel Amirandes and its staff will always be in our hearts. Thank you everyone!


Thank you for your time,

Best Regards,

J. & O. M.

Lieber Herr Stratos M.,


da ich bei meiner Abreise am 25.09.2010 leider  keine Gelegenheit hatte, mich persönlich bei Ihnen zu verabschieden, möchte ich Ihnen heute diese Zeilen schreiben.

Ich bin nun schon wieder eine Woche hier im eisigkalten Berlin ( Tagestemperaturen von 5 bis 10 Grad), aber in Gedanken bin ich noch oft auf Corfu und in Ihrem wunderbaren Hotel.

Es ist mir  ein großes Bedürfnis, Ihnen persönlich für diesen erholsamen und erstklassigen Aufenthalt in diesem „Paradies“ zu danken. Ich fühle mich im „Eva Palace- Hotel“ immer wieder außerordentlich wohl und hatte auch in diesem Jahr keinerlei Grund zur Klage. Es war einfach alles, aber auch wirklich alles absolut perfekt, so dass ich mich  mittlerweile bei Ihnen fast wie zu Hause fühle.

Da ich mich nirgendwo auf der Welt so gut entspannen kann, wie in Ihrem Haus ( und ich habe schon einige Orte dieser Welt besucht), werde ich sicher auch im nächsten Jahr wieder einen Erholungsaufenthalt im „Eva Palace“ einplanen. Ich hoffe sehr, Sie dann wiederzusehen und verabschiede mich bis dahin


in Dankbarkeit und mit den aller besten Grüßen aus Berlin



Dr. E. H.

An den General Manager der Grecotel Eva Palace
Sehr geehrte Herr Stratos M.,
mit meiner Gruppe (15 Personen) haben wir vom 28. September bis 5. Oktober eine wunderschöne Woche in Ihrem Hotel verbracht.
Ich möchte mich hiermit, auch im Namen meiner Gruppe, bei Ihnen herzlich bedanken: für die erstklassige Qualität Ihres Hotels, für die extreme Freundlichkeit und Kompetenz Ihres Personals (an der Rezeption, an der Bar, im Restaurant, in den Zimmern, überall).
Wir waren alle sehr beeindruckt, wie Ihr Perssonal uns empfangen und umorgt haben.
Wir werden Ihr Hotel gerne weiter empfehlen.
Bitte richten Sie meinen ausdrücklichen Dank und meine Anerkennung an alle Personalmitglieder mit denen wir im Kontakt waren.
Ihr Team ist einsame Spitze!!!
Vielen Dank für alles.
Mit freundlichen Grüßen
M. C.

Liebes Eva Palace Team, wir möchten uns auf diesem Wege nochmals ganz herzlich für die erholsame und angenehme Woche im Eva Palace bedanken: - für die sympathische und engagierte Betreuung durch die Gästebetreuerin Elini - für den jederzeit freundlichen und aufmerksamen Service von Sakis und seinen Teams im Restaurant und an den Bars, spezieller Dank an Theo für die "Privatstunden in Griechisch" - für die gute Küche. - Wir denken, Premium Plus ist für Kunden und Hotel eine sehr gute Idee gewesen. Wir waren damit sehr zufrieden. Unser Fazit: Ein sehr gutes Team und Management (man spürt den guten Teamgeist) an einem sehr schönen Standort. Und "die Biene Maja" werdet Ihr sicherlich auch noch bändigen. Viele Grüße und nochmals herzlichen Dank. Deutschland.

Dear Eleni
We are writing this email to thank you for your personal kindness and assistance in ensuring we had a very memorable holiday (3rd September to 10th September 2010) at the Grecotel Eva Palace. The hotel is a wonderful example of the Grecotel brand and all the staff at the Hotel were all very kind and helpful and we were very impressed by everyone who made our stay so relaxing which was just what we needed as we have pressured lives. We were most impressed by the whole team's approach to making guests feel welcome and very special.  To  mention just a few, we had great service from Fanis in the restaurant, Theo and Annya at the pool bar and from house keeping for room 315. Your personal care and attention from Guest Relations was also very much appreciated and we wish to thank you personally and also everyone at Grecotel Eva Palace for making out stay with you so very special.
With kind regards, our thanks and very best wishes

Dear Client Relations Manager


My husband and I stayed at the Grecotel Eva Palace from 2 August to 10 August 2010.


Whilst our stay in Corfu was beautiful and the hotel was generally lovely, our stay was made even better by your staff. In particular, I want to make special mention of the front desk manager Maria (who went out of her way to accommodate us), the reception staff Eleni (whose smile and local food recommendations were excellent), housekeeper Maria (who was always ready to say hello and made sure that our room was cleaned even though we got up very late) and night staff Odysseus (whose laughter and hospitality when we returned to the hotel every night at 3am made it worthwhile coming in at such a late hour!).


We regularly travel to Europe annually and have experience with 5 star hotels and staff. I would go so far to say that Maria, Eleni and Odysseus are collectively some of the best hotel staff that my husband and I have ever encountered. Please pass on this message to whomever deals with your client relations and ensure that you let the staff know of our appreciation as it these little things that make us want to return to your hotel.

Dear S.P.,
On behalf of our dear friends, S. & B. L. (Room 510) and ourselves (Room 511) can we thank both yourself and all the staff at Pella Beach for the absolutely lovely holiday we again enjoyed with you at Pella Beach from 9 - 23 June.
As always we are so impressed with the first class way the hotel is run, the caring, friendly and ever helpful members of your staff and of course the superb catering which, after nearly 50years of continental package holidays, is easily the best we have ever experienced and certainly something you would find difficult to find at such an affordable price in any seaside resort in the UK.  It is no surprise that we keep wanting to make return trips to Hanioti and we only hope that Thompsons will be offering the daytime flights we so like for 2009.
Again our grateful thanks to you all for such a splendid holiday.

Kindest regards,

A. & I. W.

Dear S.P,

I hope you are well. I wish to thank you and all your staff at Pella Beach hotel for making our family holiday such a great success. They all really enjoyed themselves and were very impressed with the great welcome they received. As it is very difficult to choose a place that suits everyone we knew Pella Beach was the place to be. I would also like to thank you for the lovely birthday cake which was made for our grand-daughter M., she had a lovely birthday.

L. and J. were amazed at the care you all take, and M. and K. also were very happy with all the lovely vegetarian food that Mr. Z. and his team made every day.

For us, B. and I, it was like coming home.

We have not forgotten about the DVDs and will send them when we trace them.

Please give all our kind regards to all the staff and management and we hope you all have a good year.


Yours sincerely, 

A. B.
