“EXCELLENT”
Reviewed April 6, 2014

We spent 10 wonderful days at this magnificent hotel.
we wnjoyed every minute due to the good staff,the politeness and help they provided all guests with.
the food was excellent with great choice every day,while the gastronomic dishes at the Azzuro restaurant were really fantastic.
rooms were large and comfortable,very clean .
The hotel is located right on the beach and it is just 15 minutes drive from the magnificent chania city.
It is also close to beatiful beaches,well known such as Balos or Falassarna.
We are going back in May and look forward to another great holiday.

Room Tip: Beach front junior suites.

It has been a wonderful experience,a week of great holidays at Cavo spada Luxury resort.
the gotel is built on a wonderful location,beach front,with a huge lagoon style pool in front.
Rooms are nice and very clean and in general the staff is really polite and always eager to help you.
we spent all days in the hotel,only two excursions to nearby fabulus Balos and lafonisi,and it was really a very relaxing holiday.
the spa is nice,with great ambience ,very good products and i would say really good prices.
The food is a culinary experience,as there are always traditional Greek plates to try as well as international dishes.
the same happens at the nice beach tevern,where you can either eat light or try among a nice variety of dishes,really tasty.
the whole ambience is relaxing,friendly and there are always people around tom take care of customers wishes.

Room Tip: Junior suites,in front of the lagoon pool.

Dear Rosario G,
Thank you very much for your wonderful review on Tripadvisor.

It is great to hear that you had a pleasant stay and that you have enjoyed the amenities of our Cavo Spada Luxury Resort & Spa in such a great level.

Regarding your notice about the location of our resort, we would like to note that it is ideal as it is very close to many amazing beaches with crystal water.

As you have already mentioned, the served dishes at all of the restaurants of our Resort are based on Greek and international tastes, in order to be able to meet and satisfy our guests flavor preferences. Furthermore, we are really proud of the served breakfast which is awarded by Hellenic Chamber of Hotels of being on the 1st 100 hotels to apply the Greek Breakfast idea.
We are looking forward to welcoming you again at our Resort, on your next visit at Greece.

Best regards,
The management.

We have been to many holiday destinations but this is the best so far. We were there in July 2013 with 2 daughters. We nad a room with a terrace overlooking the swimming pool and this was the best choice as we could keep an eye on the kids.
The food was great and the staff - very friendly.
We are now thinking about coming back in 2014 and hope that the travel agent will be able to ensure that we get the same room.

We spent only one week at this fabulus hotel.
The whole area is really nice and the hotel is located on a long pebble beach with crystal clear water.Although it was end of September beginning of October the sea water was warm and the weather fantastic.
We stayed in a superior pool access room really worth the price.
The service was excellent and the staff,mainly young people very friendly and polite.
We went there on Half board basis but we chose to turn it just for the last 4 days to premium all inclusive.
It was a good decision as we tried all restaurants and we enjoyed spa treatments.
The food in all restaurants was fantastic with huge variety .
An excellent buffet with Greek and international deserts is daily at the Arsenali restaurant which is worth trying all of them.
Tennis courts were given to us free of charge and spa tretments afterwards were really nice and at very reasonable prices.
Next year we will be back.

Room Tip: superior pool access room.

We visited Cavo in June 2013. Overall our vacation was great. Quick overview: hotel small and very nice, beach - 100% pebbles, rent a car, like we did - Elafonissi and Falasarna beaches r a must, i have to admit the water, sand, everything was excellent! Food at the hotel - very mediocre, nothing special I'm not a picky person so meat balls and french fries are ok (for a couple of days), kids were happy but my girl friend wasn't - poor choice of salads, fruits etc. Rooms very nice and clean. Hotel's very quite, usually at around 11pm i was the only person at the bar!!! Like I mentioned before overall good stay but that's not a 5* hotel if you would compare to some hotels we stayed in Caribbean or Hawaii but that's ok we love Greece and Greek people. We won't be back cause we never stay at the same hotel twice but we recommend the hotel for a nice quite vacation.
