Amirandes, Iraklio, Crete $$$$
Concierge.com's insider take:
Unlike most new luxury hotels in Greeceboutique properties where Americans can be most assured of sharing their Greek experience with other Americansthe 212-room Amirandes, 20 miles east of Iraklio, is a classic Greek beach resort. Which is to say it is grand and glitzy (think a Minoan palace surrounding a palm-lined reflecting pool the size of Lake Erie) and offers just about every dining, beach, and sports option imaginable (archery, anyone?). Still, relative solitude is possible: 68 rooms have their own swimming pool, and the villa section, almost a hotel within a hotel, has its own private beach. The hotel beaches are better for sunning than swimming, as the water is shallow and rocky, but there is an Olympic-size pool, and plenty of people around it with whom you can practice a language other than your own.
