My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights as the first stop in our honeymoon. The drive to the hotel and the initial views were breathtaking and at that point we knew this was going to am excellent stay.

Check-in was smooth and the room was amazing. Extremely spacious rooms all of which have a view of the beach/water. Breakfast was great with a very nice spread and a lot of variety. I would agree with some of the previous reviews that the restaurants were overpriced but the food was very good.

All in all I have zero complaints of our stay and the staff and hotel were excellent. One thing to note is that if you are looking to explore Crete and be in the central and lively part than do not stay here as the closest city is Ag. Nikholas which is 15min drive or 12euro taxi. However, if you are looking for a luxury and relaxing stay then Gran Melia is the way to go.

This is a fantastic place. After staying in so called 5* hotels whilst on holiday it was a suprise to find out that the property was actually a 5* property. The rooms are very spacious and luxurious, everything was clean and in good condition, all the public areas were great, it was always easy to get a sun lounger or a place on the beach. The golf carts are good fun and always available to pick you up or drop you off if you are wearing posh shoes :-) Taxis are always available to get to Agios Nikolaos and reasonable at 12 euros a trip. We thought the buffet restaurant always provided an excellent choice. We did eat in the Taverna but were told that the dine around option no longer offered a set menu but to be honest that was our only quibble with what was otherwise a really excellent experience. We were a bit suprised about the price charged for bottled water, but it is when all said and done a 5* hotel. The staff at reception were fantastic, a big thanks to the girls who assisted us with an issue with our transfer back to the airport. Everyone could not have been more helpful from the girls who meet and greet to the cleaners and the staff at the pool. There are a couple of all weather tennis courts with equipment provided but unfortunately it was too windy to have a decent game. We had an amazing time and would recommend this place to anyone.

NB Please note there are a few more reviews if you search for Daios Cove in Vathi, so I have duplicated my review here.
