Great and friendly service, surprisingly good á la carte restaurant (Azzuro) and pool bar. Nice and clean, spacious rooms. We loved our stay here. You definitely want to book the Ultra All Inclusive package. Especially thanks to Andrej, Constantina and Antonis for making the stay awesome. Downside: pool is only 1.1m deep, wifi is essentially useless (very slow and unstable).

Spent three days and night here before moving onto our villa. We enjoyed it. The staff were polite and helpful; the manager always greeted us and asked if we needed anything. We went all inclusive, so had free drinks and meals. We used the Italian restaurant (a la carte) a couple of times, which was very nice. The main restaurant... More

The hotel has a very friendly personel, the staff in the diningroom are also very service-minded, The rooms are quite ok, the beach is very nice, and if you are looking for a calm and restful place visit Kolymbari.

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
