Architecturally a very nice hotel with excellent bedrooms and pool area. Staff in reception, bar and Italian restaurants were very good and attentive. Sadly the furnishings of the lounge/bar area are very dated, more like a 2-star English standard . It felt very much like the end of the season and it seemed that the hotel was trying to last...

Dear GeoffTorquay, Thank you very much for taking time to review us. Firstly we would like to notice that our resort operates since 2008, so the furnishings of the lounge/bar area cannot be more than 6 years old. Furthermore, our resort operates with the same rules and facilities from the beginning until the end of the season every year regardless...

We have just returned from a week at Cavo Spada and can highly recommend the experience. Everyone has mentioned the staff and the cheerful and diligent service they provide. Antonis is obviously a great manager/ team leader and his staff in the restaurant and bars could not be more friendly or helpful. We had never tried an all inclusive holiday...

This was for a weeks getaway to relax, and it ticked the boxes for that. Lovely lawn for the sunbeds with bar service. I couldn't fault the staff, all very helpful and friendly, especially Antonis (restaurant manager), the two girls at the lounge bar, always ready with refills and the entertainment girls. I wouldn't class it as 5 star, but...

What a little gem - albeit with some strange choices in setup and management. This is not a big hotel by any standard - has a quiet setting with not much in the immediate vicinity but plenty of stuff with a longish walk, short bicycle, car, taxi or bus ride - either west to Kolymvari which had some great restaurants...

We stayed at Cavo Spada as part of our honeymoon and visit to Crete; and were greeted with a bottle of wine and water on arrival.
