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. Just 3 days before we were due to arrive, we were told we would have to move to another hotel due to a... More

It's not the first time we visit a hotel from the Giannoulis Hotels and Resorts. We are once again very pleased. Cavo Spada is an amazing hotel with many luxuries. The breakfast and all the meals in general were excellent! Our room was big, pool view (very relaxing) with a very comfortable bed. The days by the pool were totally... More

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

Cavo Spada is for sure a recommended hotel and worth its 5 stars. Location is perfect if you want to be secluded and get rest, not good if you want to walk around or hate distances. (bus to Chania 40min). So I was glad we had all inclusive because the area is not like you walk around and sit somewhere... More

My stay at Cavo Spada Hotel was simple ecstatic. I loved and enjoyed every minute of it. Excellent food, great facilities (including spa treatment and tennis court), pleasurable activities for children and beautiful rooms with space and comfortable beds. Surely my favorite hotel. Looking forward to come back!
