“Never want to leave!!”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

Just returned from another fabulous fortnight. We did a boat trip to paranoma, a trip to astiopouli waterfalls which were both amazing. We don't hire a car but take the bus or a taxi ride. Reasonable!

Room Tip: All good, we stayed in 6 of them!

We went to Camari Gardens at the end of June. What a little gem it is. It is a beautiful spot with terrfic views If you want nightlife it is not for you, but we had a great time. We met lots of nice people. The rooms are large and airy but basic but spotlessly clean. The family who run the hotel are so helpful and friendly. You can catch the bus to either Rethymnom or Chania, bot h of which are a good day out. The locals in village of Gerrani are most welcoming we really enjoyed theclocal taverna.

Not much to say that hasn't already been said. The family are great & friendly hosts, the food in the hotel is good. It's a great place to relax and most guests seem to be very friendly. Crete is a BIG island and the hotel is far enough out of Rethymnon that a car is very useful. You can get by without. Rooms were standard Greek hotel rooms with the basics but the air con was a must for me. There were mosquitoes knocking about but fly spray and repellant sorted that after day 1. A lot of guests were repeat visitors. We don't generally return to the same place but wouldn't count out returning to Camari Gardens.

Firstly, I went on this holiday with a big group of friends. Whenever I go on group holidays I always dread that this place wont cater to everyone's likes and needs as all of my friends are very different. But this place was mind blowing in that it was very much to everyone's liking.

Me and my partner like relaxing holidays, where you read next to the pool and don't have to adventure much, and with how lovely (and cheap!) and this place was perfect. There's a restaurant that is outstanding as well as shop right next to the complex if you want quick snacks. We were quite happy to stay in the complex for days, the place was so peaceful and relaxing! When you're there, you know you're in good hands.

Some of my other friends like to explore and eat out at different places, and the location of this hotel allows for that too. There's a bakery and a restaurant not too far, as well as a small cove beach within a 5 minutes walks, we went snorkeling and it was breathtaking. (Look out for sea urchins mind!)

At any time, the hotel will ring you a taxi that can take you for a 10 minute drive to town which is filled with loads of amazing restaurants and shops. (Try the Lemontree in town, my fiancee said it was the best meal she's ever had!) We also went to an amazing lake nearby where you could rent pedal boats and spend the day floating(or swimming!) on crystal blue water.

A few people who came with us went to the clubs at night and they had an amazing time. Also, the hotel bar staff will occupy those who want to have fun with late night shot sessions. However, I liked that the complex was slightly out of the way so every night you could have a peaceful sleep.

I've probably missed a hundred good points out of this review, but if you haven't been here yet, you really must give it a try. No matter what your tastes are, I think you will like it. If it was good enough to entertain every one out of my group of friends I know it's somewhere special!

Myself and my new wife decided to stay at Camari Gardens as the church on our wedding day would be in walking distance to the very scenic cove/beach a few minutes away. We stayed from early July to the middle and were joined by 20-30 family and friends.

We were instantly welcomed by the whole family, and settled in right away. George and Nikos(?) provided us with better nights than in Rethymno town, (which were very good), helped us with searching for a wedding cake and other bits and bobs we needed.

The views and surroundings are incredible, you could walk 5-10 minutes and find yourself in Gerani village, or down at the gorgeous cove.

The food at Camari Gardens was consistently delicious each night, the service was perfect and the guys even joined in with our celebrations with dancing, kareoke (that was specially booked for us), and many many drinks.

When our party left, we had two quiet days, and these were so peaceful and relaxing that you could see how Camari caters for any holiday-goers, friends, family (which they have a lovely Norwegian family staying there for 6/7 weeks), people wanting to relax with stunning views and genuine village life 5 mins away.

We would love to thank all of the family for providing us with two of the best weeks of our lives, to add to the most special day that I have had so far, Camari Gardens was the added bonus to our celebrations, and even added to the special time we had whilst staying there.

Thank you, George and family, good luck with the wedding next month!
