Travelers' Choice
Cavo Spada Luxury Resort & Spa is located 18kms west of the picturesque city of Chania. Its location combines in a unique way the beauty and tranquility of the Cretan Archipelagos with the unsurpassed charm of the famous Old Venetian town which is only a short drive away. Positioned on the west side of the Gulf of Chania, the hotel is built on a long stretch of beach, offering magnificent view of the Gulf of Chania and of Cape Spada. 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. Being part of one of the oldest and most respected hotel companies of Chania, the Giannoulis Hotels & Resorts, Cavo Spada Luxury Resort & Spa is the epitome of our experience in providing holidays of unprecedented quality and comfort.

Lynne E wrote a review Nov 2022

I had an 11 night stay here as part of a large family group, it was the ideal venue. The hotel accommodated 4 generations and everyone enjoyed their stay. The fitness programme was comprehensive (mostly not for the light hearted), the staff in all departments were helpful, professional and friendly and the manager was accessible, hands-on and went out of his way to address any issues we had. The food exceeded expectations, and the quality and choice didn’t diminish even when guest numbers reduced significantly at the end of the season. What’s not to like? ..… the pool was cold, but it was October!

The generosity, hospitality and attention to details at this place surpassed our expectations! Rooms were clean, and the breakfast was good. We stayed here a couple of days during the end of the season and visited Elafonissi beach.

We booked this last minute and paid for seaview room and all inclusive. Amazing holiday. Huge lagoon pool although it's only 1.1m deep all through. All inclusive really was all inclusive and had drinks and snacks all day at pool bar or sea line cafe/ restaurant. Meals where we'll stocked even though we where in last week of season. Staff very friendly and helpful especially bar staff. Maid service twice per day. Garden by pool with sun beds... beach with sunbeds directly behind the garden. Some sports activities for those who want it and a small gym but has everything in it. All in all for me I had a great time, loved the whole experience and would recommend.

Room was beautiful, lovely access to the pool. All staff really helpful especially reception staff, Manos and Voula. They were more than helpful with any problems that we have. Food was very good although never hot enough. Plates could have been warmed too. On the whole a brilliant holiday - thank you! From Stowe room 411

Just retuned from a week at the cavo good points the staff are all good the manager Agirious very good Antiono and Konstantina in the restarunts are a credit to the hotel. we went all inclusive plus we would say a must the wine selectoin and the fact you can visit the Azzuro any time a must the Azzuro was a true alaacarte not just fanncying up the standard food which was also excelent. We had room 604 an upgrade, thank you, and it was very good, we did not get the sun on our balcony but did get it at the back of the room out side the front door which was a big enough area to put our beds. . We did find the lift and lift area could do with some t l c and some of the sun beds on the grass and stones need to be changed television was a bit small but dont let this deter you it was the end of the season .Thanks again to all the staff it was a terrible week weather wise but they were allways smiling .

A beautiful hotel which is spotlessly clean. Stayed in a sea view room which was spacious, tastefully furnished and had a large balcony with sun loungers and chairs. Great to have a separate shower and bath too. The restaurants were all fantastic with a wide range of dishes suitable for everyone. Don't forget to try the cocktails! Really enjoyed the wine and olive oil tastings which were very informative. All of the staff were so welcoming. Excellent service from everyone - nothing was too much trouble. When you book just be aware that there are 2 levels of all inclusive, this wasn't clearly explained by the package company we booked through. I'd highly recommend a holiday at Cavo Spada to couples and families.

The bedroom was big clean and comfortable.the bathroom one of the best I have seen walk in big shower nice deep bath plenty of hot water,a nice lady called Tula called in every day to make sure we had plenty of clean towels and the room was found spic and span when we got back in each day and the beds were really comfortable.The food in the restaurant was faultless and the staff were very helpful and friendly.The Italian a la cart restaurant was divine I’ll never forget the lovely squid.the pool was good for me because I’m not very good on my legs but there is a gradual slope in which was good for me.The beach is lovely it’s pebbles so it was no good for me but it was beautiful.The reception staff and especially the manager were very helpful about finding ways to visit places round about.there is a bus stop on the main road about ten minutes walk from the hotel.i would recomend this hotel .

Just came home from the most amazing stay here, We had a room with the private swim up pool which was just the best, our room was spacious, loved the olive oil toiletries I even purchased some to bring home. Change of bath towels twice a day and free bottles of water every morning delivered to your room. Mini bar was lovely choice (not free but not expensive prices) the cleaners were lovely and kind and came in everyday, Dressing gowns and slippers were also a treat. Pool towels can be hires for 10 euros each from the spa which was fab. We only used the main buffet restaurant but we cannot fault it, The choice of food and desserts everyday was great, (we are fussy eaters and we always found something to eat) Pasta’s, Gyros, huge salad selection, chips, potatoes, fresh meat and fish cooked each day. Breakfast you can even get fresh omelettes made which I loved or typical breakfast selections, (Greek so doughnuts at breakfast were amazing) Good choice of wine and beer in the restaurant again the staff were amazing (I wish I got all of their names) Main bar Great selection of cocktails, spirits (branded / non branded) Special thanks to Pano & Anastasia There is not entertainment every evening out of the 7 there was 3 nights which was nice Tbh after you’ve had a day in the sun a few drinks and lots of food we was ready for bed by 10pm lol Pool bar / pool / beach Again a huge selection of cocktails , coffees , spirits and again lovely staff The beach is stoney but has lots of sunbeds and is beautiful with the scenery and waves The pool was huge and lovely and clean All in all this hotel is 5 star for us and it is was amazing, the best hotel I have ever stayed in and we can’t wait to go back, Thankyou to all the staff at Giannoulis Cavo who made our holiday an amazing one, The care and attention did not go unnoticed and you made our first holiday in 3 years one we will never forget 💚💚

I can’t rate this hotel and resort high enough! From the reception, room, pool, bar, activities, food, staff and service it was excellent. The staff are friendly, courteous and can’t do enough to help you. The room was unbelievably clean and smelt good & super clean every day. The food was amazing, there was something for everyone from local to international dishes, the salads were amazing too! The Azurro restaurant was an amazing Italian experience of high end Michelin style food, which if you get a chance you must try. I can recommend the calamari which was delicious and the tomato water sorbet with mozzarella & pesto was sublime. But I have to finish on Panioutis and his bar team who made the holiday special. Thank you for a great holiday.

This is such a beautiful hotel. We had room 321 which had a patio outside with sunbeds and chairs, and a pathway direct to the amazing pool. The beach is not much to write home about - resembling a building site, but the hotel facilities were wonderful.
