We returned from Daios Cove a week ago and had a most enjoyable time. We decided to stay in a room that had its own pool which was lovely but if I were to return to the hotel I would definitely opt to stay in a private villa with a pool. The rooms were very close together so the pool... More

I loved everything about this hotel from moment we arrived till we too quickly had to say goodbye. You feel completely spoiled, I really enjoyed the golf carts driving us around and the lovely beach. We where half board; breakfast was great but the buffet at night was a bit monotonous and they didn't let you exchange the buffet for... More

We stayed for a week at the end of May - and enjoyed every single moment. We were in a two bed-roomed villa with private pool, and for a family like ours ( 2 adults & 2 teenage daughters) it was perfect. There was so much room, we could all spread out happily. The hotel is however, VERY expensive. But,... More

We stayed with my wife from 5th to 13th July in a Deluxe Sea View Room with Individual Pool as a honeymoon package for these dates. Everything was exceptional, the room magnificent with amazing view, we had very spacious room and washroom and the pool area was fantastic! The beach was very nice and the sunbeds very comfortable. The main... More

I cannot commend Daios Cove enough for creating the whole Luxury experience through their customer attentiveness, professionalism and attention to detail. We organised a tour of Knossos & hired a (Hertz) car through the hotel and they could not be more helpful. The buffet meals in the Pangea restaurant could not be faulted; however, to avoid the noisy children it's... More

Perfection. The food in the buffet was great but we treated ourselves to the restaurants on a couple of occasions and the food there was superb. The service was great, attentive but discreet. On the beach, Vladimir the lifeguard was great, nothing was too much trouble. The beach does get busy, but the sea is perfect for swimming in. The... More

There are a few issues that prevent this resort being stand-out, but I would recommend it highly as a value for money option relative to alternative much more expansive child friendly five star resorts (eg Verdura in Sicily). The positives are the views and setting, great beach, attentive and energetic (free for over fours) kids' club. A few things are... More

Our ten days at Daios Coves was exactly what we wanted- peaceful, relaxing and luxurious- a perfect escape from the stresses of everyday life and we arrived home feeling completely refreshed. I definitely recommend a room with a private pool- the sun stays out until around 9pm, relaxing in the evening with a cold drink watching the sunset, absolute bliss!

Without whittering on about every detail I would say that I agree with almost every other review regarding the 'not quite 5*', too many young children there, the Taverna being overpriced for average food, sunbeds being hard to get hold of after 9.30am, Pangea - bitter/sweet - yes, there was a lot of choice and occasionally they excelled themselves but...
