Quite expensive for what it offers! Toilets without toilet paper but also not a disposal box!the kitchen area is tragic. An old refrigerator and two or three sinks ... There is no space for cooking. generally, the campsite gives an image of abandonment ...Another black spot was their demand when paying to pay extra for my two dogs! When I mentioned that there is no precedent for charging dogs in campsites in Greece I received the rudest answer"oh well! we are the first and it is our right" !!!in my remark, that it is not mentioned anywhere in their price lists the answer was "we will look at it" ...I had to be informed from the beginning, to decide if I wanted to stay or not!
Apparently the oldest camping of Rethymno, the vibe of this place is to provide anything in the range of basic to excellent accomodation to all visitors. I personally had the opportunity to learn insight info about hiking the gorges in the area aw well aw furtber south as well. If you want a no stress place, this is certainly your pick.
We did not stay at campsite but visited the Taverna on the Beach which is part of it. What a fantastic location on the beach, the Taverna serves great food and had a wonderful relaxed atmosphere to watch the sunset whilst eating. The food was delicious. Don’t be put of parking at campsite entrance of campsite and walking through to the Taverna, the campsite looked well organised. Well Worth a visit and away from the resorts crowds and feel like you are off the beaten track Thank you
There was no one at the reception office whenever tou need them. The note on the reception window says the opening times and adds that the manager is at the tavern in case you need him. The place is very dirty full of soil so when it blows there is a lot of dust. There are reeds around the tents and no trees, but there was a strong smell of urine around the place. Later in the evening we transfered the tent closer to the main alley because we heared noice in the reeds and were afraid of mice or snakes. There was no paper in the toilets and they looked dirty. The worst was that we couldn't find a plug to charge our phones. There were a couple in the laundry room which was far away from our tent. The security guy told us that last year a drank customer stole a campers lap top. So we were without phones or gps for 2 days. And ofcourse we got lost. The sea was nothing special. The whole place looked abandoned and dirty. The price was very expensive for no actual facilities and we left next day yo find a place less dirty and weird.…
I was here second time, this time with second kid and it was great! We booked the deluxe caravan(with toilet and shower) and that makes the difference; 2 min from beach, 2 min from taverna with good food and good value for money, staff really friendly. A supermarket is 10 min walking A car could be useful for going out and visiting :) Also, big teenage groups can be a bit noisy but not a drama in the end.
The site is ok but is really set up for tents, glamping and bungalows We arrived and were told find a spot which we did but could not see where to plug in motorhome so hubby decided we would drive on. The lady then showed us where electricity was which helped. There is a private part of camp for volunteers helping to preserve turtle population There was lots of other youngsters in tents on our two night stay so trying to get into showers was difficult and they left quite a mess I sympathise with the cleaners The site is right in the ocean so that is perfect if you want beach and you have free use of sun beds There is also a small taverna which looked nice The best thing for us was being able to leave the van parked and get a bus into the town cheap too only 2.20 return each person and very frequent Also the site is 5 minute walk to good supermarkets selling nice Cretian food …
We spent 4 days in a glamping tent and it was hard for us to leave. A glamping tent with coffee maker, fridge, AC, bathroom and shower on a marvellous quiet beach, how much better can it get. Yes I should mention the taverna that serves breakfast and excellent food all day round. All this just a short walk from Rethymno beach, if you prefer the busier life.
We stayed in a bungalow and loved it. IT is basic and simple but you can hear the beach when you go to sleep and going for a swim is ridiculously easy - just walk. It is near hotels but you really get camping atmosphere - very well organized. Showers and toilets are reasonably clean. Wi-fi works well. Air con 5 euros per stay but we managed without. Fridge to share between two bungalows. Sun beds. Towels and bedding. Beach without all these ugly umbrellas and tourist business. But you can have a chance to learn about sea turtles! Staff are friendly and helpful!!! Camping Elizabeth🏕 got a green 👍 from me for 1. "Free to use" basket with items left by previous guests for the future ones: we borrowed citronella candles, coffee☕ an, d plates (and returned back to the box with some addition). Thank you! 2. Batteries collection( just simple plastic bottles!!!) with extra points for my patronus - squirrel🐿 3.Simple crate for recycling next to general waste bin ( its empty on the picture but we filled it with #beachplastic after our morning swim. ➕camping has much lower environmental footprint and sounds of the sea when you go to sleep and wake up as a bonus…
Very nice place to stay. Not far away from the Rethymno city, easy to find, clean and safe beach, good food and fast wifi, sunbeds included. Supermarket, bus tickets, all around. The staff is very nice. Highly recommend.
Not well advertised, we were told by another holiday maker who found it. You walk through a very basic camp site to a fantastic taverna. Fantastic food/service, but don't be in a hurry, its all freshly cooked. Overlooks the beach. Front of house is on the beach. Beware of walking on beach without shores, lots of shells/sharp If you are in the area, look for this eatery.
