Having read other reviews we arrived with a certain level of doubts as to whether our choice of Cavo Spada was likely to be a mistake. On that basis our fears were unfounded.

We visited this hotel in September, traveling as a couple. The area around the hotel isn't a lot to see, since there are barely no stores nor restaurants - however this was nice since it made the area very calm and relaxing. The rooms were great even though we didn't get a room with a pool or sea view -...

It is a nice 5 star hotel of reasonable size (no spanish/turkish monstruosity in Greece:). Rooms are big, Greek personnel is great (non-greeks mush less polite). Swimming pool is great and big.

Everything you would ask for in a 5 star resort: quiet, never crowded, beautiful and clean pools, outstanding and large rooms and great service. The sea is right next to the main pool.

Had a 2 week family break in August and have come away extremely relaxed. In short - great friendly service from all the staff, great food with plenty of variety, clean rooms (ours also had a private pool which was lovely). Overall a really relaxing atmosphere. Well done Cavo Spada, we will definitely come again.
