The discount:

We advertise this offer at up to 32% off. We calculate this discount percentage based on the rates we offer compared to a price check of other online travel providers offering the same product and travel date. An example of our maximum discount is:

On 10/10/2018, leaving from London Luton, two people may book a five-night stay in a Caramel Junior suite (inclusions as noted above) and will pay £835 per person, per stay, compared to a third party online rate of £1,228 per person, per stay. Based on this calculation, by booking with Secret Escapes, you will save 32%.

The discounts, price and availability stated above were checked on 09/08/2018.

Due to fluctuations in other travel providers’ prices, the discount advertised will not always be the same discount on the “from” price.

The lead price shown is subject to availability, which will naturally decrease during the course of a sale as the relevant dates are booked.

The offer is 100% non-refundable and date changes are not possible once the booking has been made.

Your contract is with Secret Escapes with ATOL number 11257.

A stunning, five-star beachfront hideaway in Crete - includes half board, a spacious suite, welcome treats and all travel

Set in a prime beachfront location on the Cretan Riviera, Caramel Grecotel Boutique Resort is glamorous eccentricity at its best. Expect plush emerald velvet sofas in the lobby, a slick piano bar and an enchanting array of dining options. Spend your days on the curtained poolside daybeds or head to the immaculate beachfront to curl up under a cabana. There are also children's activities and clubs aplenty.

Caramel Wellness Centre provides soothing face and body treatments - a welcome respite for sun-scorched skin. Opt for a rosewater sponge bath or a massage with warmed essential oils for true relaxation. Your blissed-out state will continue in your restful suite, decked out in dazzling white, with blue accents and dark wood. The resort holds a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.

Good to know

Please note that a city tax of €4 per person, per night, is payable at the hotel upon check-out. Please note that an elegant-casual dress code applies when dining in the evening. Men must wear long trousers and sleeved shirts in all restaurants and bars.


Located in the main house or Atrium Wing, Caramel Junior suites are wonderfully spacious and look onto the sea or the gardens. You have an entrance hall to sashay down, plus a dressing area and vanity sinks. You'll find a furnished balcony or terrace, too. Vivid blue accents nod to the sparkling water outside, breaking up a whitewashed palette and bringing hand-made traditional tiled floors to life in classic Grecian style.

Mouthwatering buffets can be enjoyed in the bright and breezy Caramel restaurant, with the mighty breakfast spread a highlight. Expect fresh-from-the-oven bread, local cheeses and cold cuts, fresh yoghurts, seasonal fruits and home-made marmalade, alongside cooked-to-order eggs and smoked salmon. If you're hungry, plump for the farmhouse-style Cretan scramble, flavoured with tomatoes and oregano, plucked from the kitchen garden.

Sumptuous seafood and the catch of the day is the order of the evening at the gourmet a la carte restaurant - be sure to treat yourself to the Greek lobster spaghetti. Later, linger over drinks in the chic Panther Piano Bar, often to a soundtrack of live music.


Signature treatments take hold at Caramel Wellness Centre; the rosewater sponge bath is a highlight, after a day in the sun. Treat yourself to a pure collagen and 24-carat gold facial to achieve glowing skin, while classic mani-pedis are on offer, too. Please note that treatments incur an additional charge.

The fully-equipped gym offers state-of-the-art treadmills, free weights, cross trainers and more for all your fitness needs.


The hotel is just outside the town of Rethymno, which is a blend of old-world charm and lively Cretan life. Be sure to visit the landmark Venetian Fortress that sits above the town, before taking a stroll along the picturesque harbour. Just 20 minutes' drive away, hidden away among the oaks and pines, is the Arkadi monastery, while Sfendoni Cave, with its impressive formations, makes for a great day trip.

For something completely different, visit the traditional Agreco farm (booking required), located a short drive away, where you can bake bread, make cheese, press grapes and crush wheat in an antique mill.
