Over 6,300 personnel are employed in Grecotel offices and hotels, making it the most significant employer in the Greek hospitality sector.

All properties but one are seafront.


Award-winning Hospitality

 

Since the foundation of the Nikos Daskalantonakis-Grecotel Group in 1975, Grecotel and its management have earned thousands of national and international awards for high-quality service, visitor satisfaction, contributions to Greek tourism products, organic cuisine, environmental awareness and sustainability, and community actions. Most recently, Grecotel’s Mykonos Blu won the 2018 Condé Nast Traveler Reader’s Choice Award.


Privilege Club

Guests have even more reason to return year after year thanks to Grecotel’s Privilege Club. The loyalty scheme was founded in 1996 as the first hotel loyalty scheme in Greece. The club has over 204,000 members and was recently relaunched with an abundance of new benefits for members.


Sustainability and CSR at Grecotel

 

Besides receiving thousands of awards, the leading hotel group has supported environmental organisations and initiatives across Greece since 1992, with the Grecotel Environmental Programme being the prototype at the time for resort hotels throughout the Mediterranean.  In 2017, the N. Daskalantonakis-Grecotel Group was involved in more than 100 corporate social responsibility (CSR) programmes promoting Greek tradition, cultural heritage, cooperating with cultural organisations, and supporting local initiatives that impact local communities. Other activities are working with NGOs responsible for vulnerable social groups, raising environmental awareness by monitoring such organisations, and implementing related actions and initiatives.


AgrecoFarms

 

AgrecoFarms, just outside Rethymno in Crete, welcomes people from all over the world to take part in a Cretan farming experience. The experience combines local traditions, heartwarming hospitality and amazing food at the Taverna restaurant, all in a beautiful natural setting.

The AgrecoFarms product series is an amazing collection of herbal body care products inspired by the mythical nature of Crete. Exclusive lines of authentic gourmet food products and selected organic delicacies are available online.
