Let’s be honest. This hotel isn’t a 5 star hotel. Maybe a 4 star hotel but if you look critically it’s a 3+ star hotel. Let’s start with the positive notes. The rooms are quite big and reasonably clean. The staff is willing to help. The orange juice at the breakfast is really tasty and fresh. Also, the restaurant at the nice looking pool is tasty and affordable. That doesn’t help much with the critical points. The beds are truly horrific. Way too stiff mattresses. The extra bed on the room is hard as a stone and sleeping one night on it made me feel like being beaten up by a bouncer. The room we booked was Superior Sea View and the bell boy called this one of the best rooms. As you can see the room is located closely to the airconditioning units as well as the restaurants obstructing the sea view. The rooms are also a few hundred meters away from the sea so I don’t think this can be called “superior”. Additionally there isn’t any sun whatsoever on the terrace. Also is the balcony railing obstructing the view when using the sun beds. We ordered only breakfast which was very disappointing. The bread and croissants are stale and dry, the breakfast is every day nearly identical and it totally lacks inspiration. The cook who makes the eggs isn’t willing to make an omelet on the day he makes scrambled eggs and vv. This has really nothing to do with a 5 star hotel. The breakfast room is extremely noisy and airconditioned which, in combination with its boring interior, looks more like a school canteen. Please note that this hotel is dominated by Danes, Danes and more Danes. The pool is gorgeous to loo at but freezing cold. I haven’t seen any adult using the pool because the water is just extremely cold. Buying a drink at the pool is an expensive affair. We paid 10 euro (!) for a G&T in a plastic cup that wasn’t good either. 10 euro is a ridiculous price for such a lousy G&T. Crete offers much better hotels than this one. If you find a bargain and look at this at a 4 star hotel, it could be acceptable.

Had a great week in Cavo Spada. Food was very tasty and the staff was friendly. Special thanks to the pool bar and the awesome 80s music collection which made every pool day even better. Also the outdoor gym was very good, I would say the gym I’ve seen in any hotel. Some areas of the hotel are outdated and needs a little bit renovation, especially the Wifi system was quite unreliable in the room - beasically those were the only things why I didn’t give 5 stars.

Great hotel, great food, but the staff make it. Panos and Stephanos were the stars of the show and made the week for me. They both went above and beyond to ensure I had one of the best holidays ever. 5 star!!! Love from York. Mikey

We are just returned from a first class holiday at the Cavo Spada. We cannot fault this wonderful hotel. All staff are extremely hard working, lovely people. Covid precautions exemplary. Disposable plastic gloves available for use at the buffet, antiseptic gel on all tables, everywhere was spotless, all staff wore masks and guests were asked to when moving around the resort. Food choices were spectacular and everyone’s tastes are catered for. We were upgraded to a Superior deluxe room with sharing pool. Housekeeping staff worked so hard and our room was serviced throughout the day, as if by magic. Thank you everyone for an unforgettable week in the sun.
