Negative: *The drinks for... More

Me and my sister had a great stay at this hotel. We enjoyed the food, the staff is really nice and the hotel had everything we needed for a week of total relaxation. The hotel is very clean and fresh and we are definitely going back next year when we need a week of pampering and doing nothing besides eating... More

Brilliant Brilliant Brilliant. I can say no more. The hotel is a little out in the sticks but there's a great cheap frequent bus service at the top of the road. If you can.... Book it now you won't be disappointed

We just had a 7 night stay at this hotel. I am not sure that this will live up to 5 star expectations for everyone. We were also a little dissapointed at first, having booked a junior suite. Yes, it was very spacious, but the room was dated, and we were a bit bothered by a not-so-nice smell from the... More

We tried to find high end hotel in Crete and ended up here. Great service at the ala carte restaurant took the hotel from 4 to 5. Good spa nice beach and great to have direct access to semi private pool. Good location and nice activities as yoga, core and tennis.

The Cavo spada hotel is a great 5 star hotel. We stayed for 11 nights and were really impressed. It’s a very nice, clean, well maintained, well designed hotel with extremely high standard of food and drink.

We stayed here by accident when the hotel we were booked into was overbooked. This is a nice hotel and the rooms are large and all have easy access to the pool. The beach is a pebble beach so not ideal. This is a good family destination as you don't have to take the kids anywhere else and with a... More

The latter is a spectacular rocky cape after which our hotel was named. The hotel is spread over a 65,000 m2 private property, hence offering ample space for all the guests to enjoy their holidays in one of the 150 rooms that the hotel has to offer.
