We just spent 5 nights in a 2 bedroom Pool Suite with 3 adults and 2 young children. We can not recommend this hotel enough. The kids club in particular were amazing and very accommodating. They even opened up on their day off when it rained! 5* for everything!

Hotel's Favourite
Fantastically beautiful 14 days, we were allowed to enjoy the luxury offered with the hotel's own beach. The view from the bed to the sea, fantastic, including the sound of the sea! Extremely friendly and professional staff. We lived in a villa with a private pool and a very large terrace. We give 5 stars +. The corona hygiene measures were implemented perfectly. The spa with its offers was very good for us! We have enjoyed being in Greece at this time of year for years, especially on Crete. We stayed several times in other 5 star hotels. Daios Cove is by far the BEST! The offers of the included services are very good! Many thanks to the entire Davos Cove team! We'll be back soon.

We travelled to Daios Cove at the beginning of October as a couple. I have had my eye on this hotel for a few years and we were very excited to be going. We booked a premium Junior Suite with Private Pool and were delighted to be upgraded when we arrived to a one bedroom suite with private pool. Unfortunately this did mean we were located at the top of the resort and it was extremely windy. We actually couldn't use the outside area of our room for 4 days of the holiday as all the furniture was blown up against the patio door. Obviously this is not the hotel's fault but I did wonder if other rooms may have been more sheltered from the wind. Also the private pool was freezing and completely unusable in October and they wanted 80 euros a day to heat it. The rooms although very clean are very sparse and honestly didn't have the usual feel of a 5 star hotel. No mini bar because of Covid but you could call down for drinks which usually took about 1/2 to arrive. The beach, although very lovely, was just not big enough for the size of the hotel. The beach guys were brilliant and tried to get as many beds on as possible so everyone was accommodated but this then meant you were literally squashed in next to each other. If you are travelling as a couple be warned the adult only pool is small with about 10 beds round it which I assume you had to get up at 6am to get. There were a lot of children at the hotel. Unfortunately for us we were staying the first week of a Boot Camp and they decided to run the classes on the tennis court which was next to our bedroom. The first day at 7.30am they had the speaker so loud it honestly felt like we were lying in the middle of a gym. I know we weren't the only ones to complain and after my husband had a chat with the owner of the Boot Camp they did turn it down but you could still hear it. If you wanted to go out at night this hotel is a 20 minute taxi ride away from Agios Nikolaos. OK on the positives. The staff were all amazing and super friendly, we had the Residents Club all inclusive which was very generous but I did notice some of the things that used to be on it weren't anymore. The food was lovely in all the restaurants although we did go to Agios Nikolaos one day to get some proper Greek food. The buffet was very well organised and although we usually steer clear we ate there 3 nights in the end.

We spent one week in Daios Luxury Resorts. From the first moments in the Hotel we felt the famous Greek hospitality. The check-in procedure was fast and efficient and nothing could be more inviting as the view we enjoyed during the check-in from the upper level of the Cove. In many resorts that we visited so far were luxurious and glamorous decorated like in Daios but the one thing that separates it from the rest is the beating heart of its Hotel, the attentive staff in all departments. The three dining experiences that we had where tasteful and diverse enough to explore something new it's time we went for dinner. The highlight though is the beach house restaurant, on the sea level you enjoy the journey of flavours that represent what Greek Kitchen is all about fresh-bold-tasty....... An amazing experience on an island that has a special place in my heart!!! Thank you.
