We stayed at the Amirandes as part of our honeymoon a few weeks ago, we stayed in a superior double and the room was very clean and spacious. The hotel itself was stunning and the main restaurant area was beautiful, the staff were always helpful and friendly. We were half board so ate in the main restaurant every night but the food quality was fantastic and very varied. The drinks weren't cheap but I think the prices are to be expected from a 5 star resort, plus there was a small shop onsite where you could buy cheaper water/soft drinks/bottles of wine if you wanted.
The beach is small but there were always sun loungers available and the pool area was fantastic. The pool attendants brought around complimentary watermelon and bottles of water every day. The hotel is close to the bus stop into Heraklion which is an easy and cheap way to get into the capital to see the sights or have a cheaper lunch.
Overall I would definitely recommend the hotel, we stayed in another 5 star resort in Crete as another part of our trip and I would say that the Amirandes had better service and quality of food. We also received a complimentary bottle of Prosecco and honeyed walnuts as it was our honeymoon, a fantastic start to our honeymoon!
