We had an excellent stay at the Caramel! We came back rather late from our Santorini trip and had a very warm welcome. We were upgraded from a Garden Suite to a Sea view suite which was a nice surprise. The rooms are very nice. We had a huge room with separate dressing and enormous italian shower. On the last...

Crete at it's best. Very pleasant location. Smart and clean. Lovely rooms. Great staff (especially Oggy!) Nice grounds and facilities. The beach is very nice although the sea is a bit hazardous with rocks etc. Plenty of nearby restaurants to explore within walking distance.

This is the 2nd time we have visited the Caramel and it did not disappoint. The staff could not be more helpful. Especially Oggy in the restaurant and Sara by the pool. I would most certainly recommend the Caramel. I am hoping to return again next year.
