Beach – Swimming pools

Take just a few steps from the main swimming pool at Giannoulis – Cavo Spada Luxury Sports & Leisure Resort and Spa to the pebble beach. This beach has been awarded a Blue Flag and is organized with sun beds and umbrellas and has a lifeguard. Ideal for families as the sand/pebble area is a large and comfortable space for children to play, build castles, dig and enjoy Crete’s summer sun.

The impressive 1700 sqm main swimming pool – a free style lagoon – is available for all guest use as are the sun beds and umbrellas which are set up on the green well kept garden next to the pool. At this size each guest is guaranteed a comfortable and relaxing time at the pool.

A separate children’s swimming pool is also available with a maximum depth of 0.40 cm. The unique and exotic bridge-accessed pool bar at the main pool offers refreshments and snacks (open from 10h00 to 19h00).

Guests staying in a Deluxe Junior Suite have direct access to the swimming pool.

And finally, the privileged few staying in either a ‘Deluxe sea view double room, with sharing pool’or a ‘Deluxe Family Room, with sharing pool’ enjoy a private pool – shared only by guests in the few neighboring rooms.

Crete is an ideal region for producing top quality wines.

Olive oil tasting ( Every Saturday)

There is a wide range of flavors found in Cretan extra virgin olive oils. Flavors are determined by several factors including type of olives, ripeness of olives, growing conditions, and oil storage. It is believed thatyou don’t have to become a certified expert to be a good judge of the quality and grade of the olive oil. An expert person will be showing the tips on how to determine the quality and characteristics of the oil.
