Our stay in this hotel was a really great experience. The weather was very good when we visited the hotel, so we had the chance to enjoy the sea and the pools. The food in the hotel is great. We recommend it.

A stylishly designed hotel backing onto the beach with an enormous pool surrounded by palms and Mediterranean pines, it is 7km (a 25-minute bus ride) from the centre of Rethymnon with its delightful old town and Venetian harbour ringed by restaurants. The hotel staff - at reception and in the restaurants - are professional and hospitable and offer a very... More

A magnificent hotel with a colonialist touch. A rich breakfast where someone can find happiness amongst sweet and salty elements, with a lot of nicely made Greek products. The rooms are beautifully designed in blue and while touch and you can pleasingly relax on the palm leaves by the pool. Be aware that some guests leave their staff by the... More

Really enjoyed our week at the Caramel. We booked Crete for mid October as we wanted somewhere in the Med that would still be warm enough to swim in the sea every day with a good chance of reliable weather - we got both. The sea was a little rough on 1 windy day but was deliciously warm and the... More

We returned as soon as we could because it is "more-ish" (see previous review). We were greeted by everyone as welcome guests and old friends. And we were just in time to see a romantic Russian wedding on the beach. Whereas there were children of school age on our previous visit, this time the families were much younger. The peaceful...

From our arrival to departure everything was perfect. We arrived feeling quite exhausted after a 10 hour journey to be greeted at the entrance with cool wet flannels and were then presented... More
