“Luxury resort with lots to offer families with children of all ages, but not overrun by kids. On a long stretch of sandy best close to Rethymnon – Crete's cutest town - Caramel is around an hour from Heraklion and Chania airports.”

Hotel Overview

“The Grecotel group has transformed this former three-star into the Rethymnon area's first true luxury boutique resort. It's a blinder – that's blinding as in 'fabulously stylish' and as in 'dazzlingly white', with blue accents. The sun glimmers off a lagoon-like, seawater relaxation pool, surrounded by palms, that is the hotel's focal point. Around it, suites and villas continue the colour scheme, even down to the specially commissioned floor tiles, bed linens and soft furnishings. Huge walk-in showers, Nespresso machines, wine coolers and hand-carved furniture are among the in-room trimmings. White canvas gazebos provide shade around the pool and on the semi-private sandy beach. Eating and drinking options include brasserie and a la carte restaurants, piano bar, poolside dining. 'Tasty Corner' provides free meals and snacks for kids all day and there are lots of activities for tots, teens and pre-teens.”
