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

The resort is very nice, clean and the staff is friendly. The room was excellent, clean and large withe a great bathroom. The food was excellent and diversified, and the deserts were great. The pool is very nice but the sunbeds could have been cleaner, and the wifi is acceptable. The beach is probably the biggest disappointment of all as... More

I stayed at this hotel with a friend, and we basically wanted a total chill out in luxurious surroundings and having both visited Crete many times, we thought that the Cavo Spada looked perfect....we were wrong. We arrived at the hotel to be informed that they were overbooked and that we would have to relocate to a nearby hotel for... More

Architecturally a very nice hotel with excellent bedrooms and pool area. Staff in reception, bar and Italian restaurants were very good and attentive. Sadly the furnishings of the lounge/bar area are very dated, more like a 2-star English standard . It felt very much like the end of the season and it seemed that the hotel was trying to last...

Dear GeoffTorquay, Thank you very much for taking time to review us. Firstly we would like to notice that our resort operates since 2008, so the furnishings of the lounge/bar area cannot be more than 6 years old. Furthermore, our resort operates with the same rules and facilities from the beginning until the end of the season every year regardless... More

We have just returned from a week at Cavo Spada and can highly recommend the experience. Everyone has mentioned the staff and the cheerful and diligent service they provide. Antonis is obviously a great manager/ team leader and his staff in the restaurant and bars could not be more friendly or helpful. We had never tried an all inclusive holiday... More

We have visit about 15-20 all inclusive the last 10 year. Cavo Spada is the best. Food is very very good. Service is top of the class. Pool is fantastic and very big. Everything is very Clean and there is a Place for everyone in sunbeds at pool and beach.

This was for a weeks getaway to relax, and it ticked the boxes for that. Lovely lawn for the sunbeds with bar service. I couldn't fault the staff, all very helpful and friendly, especially Antonis (restaurant manager), the two girls at the lounge bar, always ready with refills and the entertainment girls. I wouldn't class it as 5 star, but... More
