I have just returned from spending a week with 3 other ladies celebrating a significant birthday at the Daios Cove in Crete. I wanted to book somewhere where everyone woke up with the feeling that they were staying somewhere exceptional and this hotel did not disappoint. Having spent a long time researching options I arrived feeling anxious that the hotel...

As large luxury hotels go, this is a very good one indeed. It's been deftly and tastefully built into what must have been a empty cove until this came, as if to create a new village. The style and colours blend with the landscape. It's expensive, but rooms are superb, the beach is private with excellent swimming, there's a beautiful...

This is a beautiful hotel with wonderful service. From the moment we arrived to be greeted by name by Mitchell and be whisked to our rooms where our luggage was already waiting for us, we were always impressed by the staff. The level of customer service training was evident ( and I am very fussy). Special mention to Valentino and...

Having just returned from a fabulous week at the Cove it certainly ticked all the boxes. Without repeating what has already been commented on this is really somewhere special. Yes it was the height of the season with a lot of families but as a couple we found this unobtrusive with the vast majority of kids well behaved and under...

We did a lot of research for a 1 week holiday with grown-up children and booked two adjacent sea-view rooms with plunge pools. It was just perfect in almost every respect - classy, well appointed and highly courteous and professional staff. The hotel is in a secluded and private bay, well set back from the road, so no traffic noise...

We have stayed here three times now and it never disappoints. Barefoot luxury with great service, delightful staff and a very high standard of accommodation. The bay is breathtakingly beautiful and the northerly winds keep you cool during the blisteringly hot simmer days. Breakfasts are bountiful and you can eat almost anything and as much as you can. The pool...

Lovely place to stay, especially for family groups. If you want peace and quiet as a couple it can be hard to find. Staff excellent and facilities good. Prices are way too high for daily food and drink, watersports ridiculously so. In conclusion and in spite of the above commentary, yes, we would return but with family rather than as...

We had a wonderful deal from Expedia, with 2 deluxe sea view suites with private pools and the hotel ensured we were next door to our 3 sons' room. The beach and water sports were great (though the latter were pricey) and we spent many happy hours at the beach, we water skied, did inner tubing, scuba dived, and kept...
