My husband and I have travelled all over the world both near and far. This was the best holiday ever. We have never been to Crete before in fact we have never been to Greece or any of her islands.We are already planning to go back. The staff are amazing and breakfasting in the garden was a lovely experience. We... More

What to say if I want to keep this place to myself.! We stayed in Fennel cottage just over the road from the gardens, reading room and pool. Breakfasts were sublime, my husband is converted to yogurt and honey for breakfast. The beds were comfortable. We usually can't wait to get back to our own bed. Trish the concierge was... More

Where do we start? The accommodation was excellent. Our cottage was quirky, set out on four levels. The view from the bedroom balcony was breathtakingly. It looked out over the White Mountains. The bedroom was beautiful and the bed very comfortable. Nearby are the gardens with a swimming pool, reading room over an honesty bar, and a spa and Hammas.... More

Wonderful village, we loved bloumasifis (I am so sorry I have no idea how to spell it) and we thought that one of the waiters looked just like Orlando bloom! One thing I would says as that my bed was so hard I could barely sleep on it. It was more like a brick wall with a sheet on top.... More

While we wish we could say "it's terrible" so we can keep it to ourselves, in truth the Arosmari Cottages in Vamos, Crete, are fantastic - truly a "retreat" and an oasis of peace away from hectic lives back at home ! We were fortunate to find this place almost randomly - we are normally more into road trips around... More

We have just returned from a second stay at this wonderful hotel, and it was just as good as the first time. The setting is excellent, quiet and relaxing. The cottages are essentially self-catering, but breakfast is included and light lunches can be provided on request. A wonderful team look after you from the moment you arrive and provide a... More

All ten of the cottages look absolutely charming and are in very close proximity of the main 'hotel' area which comprises of an open sided reading/relaxing room and open sided and sheltered breakfast terrace/room. Also comfortable outside seating areas. The gardens are meticulously maintained as is the pool area. Mint cottage is a bit of a hidden gem and would... More

What a fantastic week away my husband and I have just enjoyed at Chamomile cottage in the Arosmari village hotel. We travelled with Simpson and were met on arrival at the airport by Mike who directed us to the car hire desk and we had very clear driving instructions to the resort. A 50 minute journey by car was well... More

This is the perfect place for a relaxing holiday. It's adults only, which is great for anyone wanting a really peaceful holiday. The resort is a collection of 10 cottages clustered on the edge of Vamos, a quiet village about 10 minutes drive from the coast. The cottages have been beautifully and thoughtfully restored by the owner, Nicos. The pool... More
