IN LOVE with their Guests…

Posted by GRECOTEL on February - 21 - 2012

What is that special kind of hospitality that brings Grecotel guests back year after year?Perhaps it’s the fact that they are treated like VIPs, no matter what. Each one of them is greeted by their name instead of ‘sir’ followed by a genuine smile and a warm handshake. We asked six of our exceptional hotel managers to reveal their secrets and suggest that special way to welcome a special guest:

Beach Dining Crete
Vassilis Minadakis,
General Manager
AMIRANDES Grecotel Exclusive Resort
Despite the fact that Amirandes features 7 restaurants and bars my ideal table setting nestles on the beachfront. Let the moment dictate the mood as nature stops the clock with a gentle sea breeze. It’s always the simplest things that are really precious. Feel the sand, smell the salt, breathe in the fresh air, savour imaginative
cuisine with the freshness and flavour of local ingredients… and listen to the waves. www.amirandes.com

Agreco Farm Crete
Dimitris Kalaitzidakis,
Operation Manager
GRECOTEL S.A
Cretan people are always looking for an excuse to celebrate. Join us next Sunday in the harvest festival at Agreco farm. The golden wheat is ready to be harvested, threshed and ground into flour. We will celebrate the traditional Cretan way, while the lunch menu includes: suckling pig roasted in the wood-burning oven, fresh organic vegetables and salads, fried quail, Sfakian pies, all followed by Greek coffee and Cretan sweets! www.grecotel.com

Cap Voyage Peloponnese
Michalis Minadakis,
General Manager
GRECOTEL OLYMPIA RIVIERA RESORT
Cretan hospitality at Peloponnese’s most beautiful beachfront landscape. That is the winning combination for the Resort’s fanatics. The service is refined, with great attention to detail and complete respect for privacy. Here, diners can indulge in a regal feast: Mediterranean delicacies and perfectly matched regional wines stimulate the senses and create a festive mood. We will celebrate at Cap Voyage, an incomparable gourmet restaurant in a location of outstanding beauty… www.grecotel.com

Easter at Corfu
Spyros Michas,
General Manager
CORFU IMPERIAL Grecotel Exclusive Resort
Corfu is at its prettiest in the spring and Corfiots, along with hotel guests celebrate the Greek Orthodox Easter with particular pageantry and unique traditions. Preparations begin far in advance & culminate with Holy Week, an extraordinary experience that visitors are invited to share with locals. On Holy Saturday evening a special menu is served featuring the traditional mayiritsa, a soup served to break the Lenten fast. On Easter Sunday we will get in the festive spirit with live music, local folk dance and, of course, the spit-roasted lambs. www.corfuimperial.com

Sunset Sailing Attica
Nikos Manolesakis,
General Manager
CAPE SOUNIO Grecotel Exclusive Resort
Cape Sounio is Greece’s cape of myth. Embrace the colours and romance of the world-famous Sounio sunset with a cruise on our private yacht around the foot of the Temple of Poseidon. With champagne in hand and classical music in the background, you can truly savour the unforgettable images of this unique place framed by the vibrant evening sky. www.capesounio.com

Beach Party Psarou, Mykonos
Konstantinos Pletsas,
General Manager
Mykonos Blu Grecotel Exclusive Resort
Mykonos is one big party, but there’s one venue that never fails to wow even the most jaded socialite: Psarou beach. Exotic settings, exquisite surroundings and pristine waters. Feel the rhythm of the Aegean summer as you dance barefoot on the sand soaking up the shimmering sunset. www.mykonosblu.com
