This might just be the best hotel in Crete in many visitors’ books. Centred around the amazing confetti pool that vividly changes colour at night, Caramel’s accommodation consists of a meandering series of roomy suites set amidst...

It's quite a small hotel with one swimming pool (stunningly lit up at night time) - plenty of sun beds and gazebos. There is entertainment on an evening in...
