The Lowdown

If you’ve ever wanted to step into a postcard, you won’t be disappointed by the island of Crete. The largest of the Greek Isles, it offers a stunning variety of landscapes, like white-sand coves with turquoise waters and impressive mountains that tower in the distance. It’s all too easy to fill your days here, with everything from impressive ancient ruins and pristine beaches to some of the greatest food and drink on the planet – not to mention the fabled birthplace of Zeus.
The tranquil, beachfront Cavo Spada Luxury Resort and Spa is the perfect hideaway on this mythical island. Surrounded by the stunning Mediterranean waters and boasting spectacular views of Rodopou Peninsula, this five-star retreat is steeped in natural beauty while still located only half an hour away from the city of Chania. With a lagoon swimming pool, four restaurants, tennis courts and a spa, the resort has everything you could need, and then some.


The rooms at Cavo Spada Luxury Resort and Spa are bright, airy and open-plan. With refreshing décor and plenty of space, they provide the perfect base for a relaxing Crete getaway. Each of the Deluxe Double Sea View rooms is equipped with a furnished balcony or terrace so you can really enjoy those gorgeous Mediterranean views.


Arsenali restaurant serves up buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner, with dishes ranging from classic Greek delicacies to international cuisine. Meals can be taken either in the large indoor dining room or on the outdoor terrace. Sea Line Beach Tavern give you another outdoor option and serves Mediterranean and Cretan favorites. For Italian, Azzuro restaurant is on hand for à la carte dining, and Avra features à la carte Mediterranean, as well as fusion and Asian cuisine.For drinks, Pool Bar and Main Bar are both excellent spots for an afternoon or evening cocktail. Main Bar especially, with its sophisticated setting and live music once a week, is highly recommended for a nightcap after a long day.


The hotel’s spa takes relaxation to another level. With a full range of services, including therapeutic treatments, a hammam, a sauna, an indoor heated pool and hydromassage facilities, you can be sure that you’ll be taken care of.


Cavo Spada Luxury Resort & Spa is perched on the edge of Kolymbari, a picturesque fishing village with little tavernas, shops and a beautiful stretch of beach. If you’re in the mood to explore more of the island, the beautiful city of Chania is less than 15 miles away.

Good for all inclusive but not for business

Huge hotel right by the sea, about 40km from Chania. We came here for 3 nights, on business. Views amazing, service nice, rooms clean, really tasty food (not many options for vegetarians and not enough product descriptions for people with allergies). Giving my opinion from business perspective - wi-fi was very poor, and for one evening it was completely not functioning. Mobile range really hard to catch, especially in the building. From all computers for guests not a single one was functioning. I was also surprised that in a b&b room option, in country where temperature is usually high, there was not even a small complimentary water bottle in the room. Once our towels were not changed. For early breakfast I was not informed at the reception desk that for vegetarian option I need to do a special order. Taxi to hotel around 60€, 30 min ride, is also a minus. Basically, not bad but as for 5 star hotel and business visit I was expecting better.
If I would be giving this opinion from vacation perspective, probably it would be better, because swimming pool and sea area was nice and I saw people with all inclusive option had a variety of food and drinks to choose.

Lovely holiday

We have just come back from a great few days at this hotel as our original hotel closed early for the season with 4 days still to go

We were moved to here and the staff, food, accommodation and amenities were superb.

The staff could not have been more helpful whenever we asked for something.

The pool barman made my other half's stay very entertaining by remembering and pouring his drink before he even got to the bar.


Just returned from a fabulous week at this hotel. Great arrival, swept straight into the restaurant for lunch and then shown to our room by the hotel manager. Fantastic! Room 321 was just as advertised - and spotless, as was the whole of the hotel and it’s grounds. Great food and excellent service everywhere, coupled with a great selection of food and drink on the AI package. Had a chat with our friends and decided it was a 10 out of 10 holiday - totally relaxing! We never left the site - no need to. We hope to go back soon!
