Quiet, relaxing, close to the beach, laid back
Posted May 18, 2015
I stayed in room 131, a room with the "private" pool. It was an amazing experience. The staff turned the rooms down sometimes 3 times a day which was impressive. The location was a little out of the way but that just added to the brilliance of everything. I was a bit let down by not having the bed I wanted, yet the staff did their best to accommodate. The breakfast is plentiful, however get their early, everything is cooked fresh but as it is a buffet it cools pretty quickly. The hotel waiting staff work very hard to make your stay comfortable and the managers were more than willing to roll their sleeves up and get stuck in if they could. This place will be a 5 star hotel soon but at the moment it's the very small things that have them at a 4.5. Minor repair issues around wooden decking, patchwork on paint repairs, spelling errors on paperwork and menu's (i know its finicky but its the really small things that set the excellent aside). Would I go back, gladly. Top tips 1: learn a few phrases in Greek, the staff will appreciate it. 2. The private pool rooms don't have a direct sea view, but the beach is so close it doesn't matter even slightly. 3. Beach shoes are a must as the pebbles take some getting used to in flip flops. The Cavo Spada is a place where you can get away, be completely rejuvenated in privacy and solitude, or you can get involved in any of the many listed activities they have on offer and meet some great people. I loved this place. Thank you to all the team.
