We came to the resort in late April, and got lucky with the weather which was very nice. The hotel and the setting really is very cool - cut into the cliff, and the views are spectacular. The buffet food was generally delicious, with high quality food and good variation each night. We love our food, and would normally be...

Exceptional resort with stunning views. Staff are always eager to help with nothing appearing to be too much. As a well travelled couple, we were impressed with the buffet style breakfast and dinners, always offering a selection of dishes to cater for everyone's needs. Touching upon others reviews regarding prices for lunch and drinks - granted these are not cheap,...

Just returned from a week at this resort. Amazing in every sense of the word. I expected luxury being 5* but what made it so special were the staff....everyone from the cleaners to the restaurant staff, golf buggy drivers who ferry you about to the hospitality staff and management couldn't do enough for you. They genuinely went the extra mile...

Exceptional holiday resort. Contemporary but still with Greek influences. Three restaurants, the buffet being the busiest and food good. There are adult only areas as a lot of children/babies seemed to be there. We had a problem on the first evening as we required twin beds and they do not have many rooms with these. It was an issue for...

We stayed here from the 9th to the 16th of May, we thought this time of year wouldn't be too hot and on the whole it was a great time to come. The weather was around 25 degrees each day, the evenings were warmish, the only downfall being the sea, which was a little cold but still manageable - plus...

We stayed here for 7 nights in a villa with private pool. This hotel is beautiful, clean, stylish and modern. Staff are always pleasant and helpful. Food was ok in the buffet area.. we found it too expensive in the other restaurants there. Drink prices are way over the top (€5 for a 250ml bottle of Coke) and at dinner,...

This is a beautiful resort for sure, and it is in generally very good condition (the resort itself is nine years old, I was told, and was originally commissioned for the Melia hotel group). The design of the place is also really nice. The standard half-board food is exceptionally good, as was the service in and around the whole resort....

the hotel, local, food, beach and most of all the staff here where amazing. I came with clients with very demanding requirements. Literally nothing was too much trouble, everyone bent over backwards to accommodate us in every way. I cant wait to come back, it cant possibly be too soon.

Every time I come to this resort,I am amazed by its serenity and the way it seamlessly blends into the natural scenery. The staff is very well trained and polite, the food at their OCEAN restaurant is literally award winning {the chef won a prestigious greek culinary award},the beach staff is highly attentive and helpful, even under the blistering sun....

Of all the luxury resorts we've been to we have never felt the urge to return to any - except Daios Cove. This will be the first time we've ever returned anywhere and we're going back because we had a spectacular 10 night holiday in June 2016. Firstly, the resort is stunning. It's clean. It's tidy. It's very well imagined...
