This is a lovely hotel and we enjoyed our week long stay very much. For an all inclusive hotel the food was very good (although it became kind of repetitive towards the end of the week). Service was excellent throughout, especially housekeeping did an great job. I also want to mention the staff in the main restaurant, that even when... More

We stayed here for four nights as our sea view room wasn't ready at their sister hotel Santa Marina Plaza. We were upgraded to a pool side junior suite which was lovely. Staff were friendly & helpful. The food was fresh but no fresh fruit salad in the mornings just tinned fruit. We did notice some differences in the two... More

I spent one week here on an active sports vacation and was very happy with my stay. The room (superior) was large, nicely furnished and with a large balcony overlooking the sea. We had sunbeds on the balcony and the bathroom was spacious. The cleaning was perfect. The food (buffet) was excellent with lots to choose from, both greek and... More

Cavo Spada wasn't our hotel of choice - we were relocated there from another hotel (the same boutique chain: Giannoulis Hotels & Resorts) as a part of Cavo Spada's promotion and advertisement. It’s a beautiful hotel with a big swimming pool which is located directly next to the beach. You can also choose a room with a separate swimming pool... More

we recently spent a week at this fantastic resort. The rooms were large, clean and well furnished with nice balconies. We were 13 in our group and everyone was super happy. We had an all inclusive package and no one had any complaints! Great location and wonderfully welcoming. The staff were excellent! Go there!

It´s a rather small resort in the middle of nowhere, at least half an hour car ride from Chania (more than we expected), less to Platanias, so as a family with small kids, getting anywhere comfortably meant renting a car. There is neither a whole lot happening at the resort, but if you´re just interested in relaxing at the resort... More
