4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

There is no doubt that this is a 5 star hotel. From the minute we stepped in although our arrival was around midnight we missed sitting down for a cool drink while filling out registration it wasn't offered to us maybe because of the time of arrival . We had well missed dinner but a lovely selection of sandwiches and... More

We just returned from a 7 night stay at Daios Cove staying in a 3 bedroom villa (3 adults and 3 children under 5). There are lots of positives - stunning setting in the cove, beautiful infinity pool, great architecture, very friendly service from staff. Our case went missing on the outbound flight and turned up two days later and... More

We have stayed at Daios Cove half a dozen times over the last three years and always look forward to returning. The hotel is a true five star, and the staff have always gone "above and beyond" to provide a friendly, relaxed, atmosphere which is exactly what we look for. Suggestion - dont take a transfer bus from Heraklion airport.... More

There is very little to fault this place. It's certainly not cheap, but the rooms are spacious, well thought out and all with fantastic views. The staff are all very friendly and professional. Lovely communal areas. Food is very nice. Plus as a bonus, a nice free kids club too. We were on a half board basis and had a... More

We stayed here for a week. We were lucky enough to be upgraded to a villa (room 202, perfectly located near the beach and restaurants but still very private) but I would still have given this hotel 5 stars even without the upgrade. The attention to detail stood out, be it in the restaurants, at the beach or in the... More

Let me summarise that we had a great time, and we would always recommend you go there if you travel to Crete. It is a wonderfully designed place, fitting right in with the surrounding nature - amazing! Windy yes, at times, but that's the case all over Crete. The rooms are great, and the hotel offers everything you might need... More
