Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had a wonderful time at the Caramel Grecotel Boutique Resort. My husband and I travel often, and I have to say this is the best hotel we've ever stayed at. The staff was super friendly, the villas were clean and spacious, and the restaurants at the hotel were diverse and delicious. If you are looking for a relaxing oaisis in Greece, this is your place to go. We very much enjoyed our stay!

Hotel's Favourite
My husband and I and our two year old son stayed at the Caramel Grecotel resort in Crete for 10 days in early September. From the moment we stepped in the hotel we were treated like royalty, we were greeted with a selection of drinks and fresh grapes followed by a tour of the hotel and we were then escorted to our lovely room. Hotel highlights: If travelling with children, Kids club, all day entertainment and activities for children over 4, (under 4’s can attend but under parent/carer supervision) Lovely big pool Quiet and relaxing atmosphere Michelin star local fresh food, we went for half board and had breakfast dinner and at the hotel, the food was absolutely faultless and delicious, plenty of options for children too Well-equipped gym Beautiful beach You get served complimentary fresh fruit and water by the pool and the beach in the morning and children can also have free of charge lunch at the buffet, the restaurant and the kids club The first round of drinks of the mini bar is also included Voucher for the Algreco farm and the hotel’s a la carte restaurant (if staying for over 7 nights) But what made our stay extra especial was the staff, they made us feel so at home, we were always greeted with a smile, service was impeccable, faultless and on point. They made a massive effort with our son and made us feel so comfortable and looked after. There’s a WhatsApp system for any service requests and all of our messages were replied to promptly, nothing ever seemed like it was too much effort. The hotel should be proud of having such an incredible team of lovely and hardworking people. Special mention to Konstantina who had a soft spot for our son Owen, always so caring and efficient, Iasonas, Arbri who became Owen’s best friend, Dimitri, Maria who made sure that the food was constantly being replenished, Litsa, George, who shared his love of cars with our son, Katerina who greeted us at on our arrival and showed us around, Entiona, Soula (capitain), George, the life guard who would bring us bottled of water every morning and found an inflatable ring for our son, he was lovely! Leonidas at reception who replied to all of my messages and requests and all the other staff members who names we didn’t get, especially, the two lovely ladies who used to service our room every day. Thank you for such an unforgettable holiday!

Warm greetings from Germany! This was my fourth visit to Grecotel Caramel Boutique Hotel, and as always we had a wonderful time there! The resort has a magical atmosphere and a very beautiful setting, full of different flowers and plants as well as a gorgeous beach. A perfect place to relax and enjoy! But what makes this hotel so special is the pleasent team✨ I would like to extend my heartfelt gratitude to the entire team for ensuring that my stay was delightful and comfortable! A special commendation to Mr. Alex from the a la carte restaurant. Together with his stellar team, they truly exceeded expectations. The culinary delights, from main courses to desserts and drinks, were not only of the highest quality but also tantalizingly delicious and beautifully presented. Every evening I enjoyed great food, live music, and a lovely service. My warmest appreciation goes out to the entire staff! Their kindness, efficiency, hospitality and genuine warmth contributed immensely to the overall experience! Lovely greetings and a thank you to the beautiful ladies with sweet hearts: Soula, Litsa, Konstantina, Maria, and the gentlemen: Oggy, Grigorios, Dimitri, Arbri, and of course everybody else!!! And a thanks to the lovely reception team who always tried to make our stay even better! I must particularly highlight the remarkable service provided by sweet Persa. Her unparalleled professionalism, combined with her genuine sensitivity, made a lasting impression. Dear guys😍 I’m wishing you all a bit of relaxation after a extra sunny, busy season and many many happy days! Stay healthy! I hope to see you again😊 Best wishes and much love❤️ Tamara

We enjoyed a fantastic week at the Caramel Grecotel. The resort is small with a really nice atmosphere, beautiful setting and is well landscaped - balancing a great seafront location with a stunning and very relaxing pool area. Rooms were clean, very spacious and not overlooked. Our children (8 and 10) really loved the kids club, which had a really good range of activities including outdoor games - the team there were really engaging and the kids lunch buffet was a welcome addition. Breakfast and evening buffets were lovely, with lots of options including local specialities - we will definitely miss the exceptional range of cakes and desserts! What really sets this resort apart though is the team and management - everyone from reception, kids club, restaurant, bars, housekeeping, security and lifeguard were exceptionally friendly and went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. Maintenance and cleaning were of a very high standard. It was very clear that the team took pride in the resort and were focussed on the wellbeing of guests, which is a credit to management. The location was good for exploring the local area - we had a car and were able to get to Chania, Knossos and the south of the Island very easily. We will miss this place and would love to go back!

Enjoyed every minute of this vacation with my family, including two teenagers. The hotel was amazing with gorgeous views from the lobby, the on-site restaurant, and our villa. The amenities were top notch- from the pool facilities to the rooms and especially the lovely private beach. The staff went out of their way to ensure we were enjoying ourselves. Yoga in the morning on the beach, a great way to start the day followed by an amazing breakfast buffet- with champagne included! Oggy was especially helpful and made sure our champagne glasses were never empty. The beach loungers were clean and not crowded and the beach bar staff made excellent margaritas and took great care of us. Overall a super week and we will most certainly return.

We stayed at Caramel Grecotel in October 2023 and were absolutely thrilled. All staff was super friendly and at all times had a smile on their face, making us feel welcome and at home! The breakfast and dinner buffets were of great quality. You could choose small portions from a variety of dishes not to forget the countless dessert options. The activities on offer like Pilates, stretching or Aqua gymnastics were very fun to do with a great coach! The groups were always very small so that the coach was able to always check whether you‘re doing the exercise right. We can only recommend staying at this beautiful hotel!

The best hotel experience so far in Greece, all team very responsive and helpful. Finds a solution for everything :) Family-friendly hotel with children. We had even planned to visit another part of the island for 3 days, but after one night we turned back to this hotel, because we felt like home and completely relaxed here. Very good location, has its own beach area and nearby Rethimno city

I recently reviewed the hotel following a holiday in October 2022, and gave it 5 stars. We have just returned from our second stay, and somehow, it was even better. We had the same suite as last time (206) which we were really happy with, and we really appreciated that with a 2am arrival, reception were happy to delay the paperwork until after breakfast. This hotel just “gets” great customer service and whilst it is an exceptionally hard thing to do, they make it look so effortless. It would perhaps be unfair to single out any staff members individually, because they are all so amazing. But it was so nice to see familiar faces from last year and, with the current difficulties faced by the hospitality industry, high staff retention says everything about this hotel. It was so lovely to be greeted by at least 6 staff members with “weren’t you here last year? Hasn’t your daughter grown!” I was already very complimentary about the food options at the hotel, but I think the quality went up several notches this year. We had two meals in the a la carte restaurant and I would easily compare the quality with a high end restaurant. Similarly the buffet was perfect and I say that as a person who does not usually like hotel buffets. As we left, our little girl waved to the receptionists and said “bye bye, back soon” and I have no doubt that we will. All in all, staying at the Caramel Grecotel is like staying with friends, and those friends just happen to own a beautiful mansion with a spectacular swimming pool, a team of the most wonderful staff, and the beautiful Cretan coastline on their doorstep. We will absolutely return, again and again.

What an amazing stay we had here, every member of staff were so polite, friendly and couldn't do anymore for you, very attentive, I am gluten free and they went above and beyond for that too. We enjoyed aqua gym which was included too and the entertainment on some of the evenings was lovely while eating dinner at one of their restaurants. The spa was very relaxing. Reception helped book some trips, the farm not far away, where they make olive oil is lovely, and they put on so much food, it was beautiful, and not far from the town for a day/ evening out, we thoroughly enjoyed it and would love to come back in the future. Thank you everyone
