We stayed at Daios Cove in October 2016 with our 4 month old baby. The resort is beautiful. It is built into a hillside and the views on the entrance level and around the entire resort are stunning. There is a small private beach and a large infinity pool. There seemed to be plenty of sun beds in both locations...

I forgot to write a review after our stay last year so apologies as this is regarding a holiday taken August last year . We visited in 2015 and had a great holiday . Last year I felt it wasn't as good. The hotel is still lovely , great views , nice cocktails and food. A small beach where you...

Ok if you have a big wallet and don't mind being marooned in the complex. I would not return. It's for a certain 'type' of person. I like to be among the locals and traditional areas. Five stars but you could be anywhere. Management did try to help but it is what it is.

A perfect family holiday hotel or for couples. The hotel rooms are beautiful with views across the cove. Some rooms have their own pools which can be a gimmick. The quality of the food in the main restaurant is superb and the staff very attentive. I was impress by how accommodating the hotel was for disabled guests and would return...

We went with a young child and it was perfect - well catered for children's mealtimes, great room, stunning views. Only negative was the strong winds which made the beach nearly impossible to enjoy, definitely couldn't take kids - they were effectively sand blasted (this was entirely our bad luck). When it is still the cove is amazing and fantastic...

I went along with family on a trip to the cove last minute. The rest of my party grouped together and got a villa, but me last minute got a room. My room was nice but I was only really there to sleep otherwise I was at the villa. I was able to call a buggy to be transported to...

Daios Cove is one of the best luxury hotels I've ever been. I had a standard room, yet with a private balcony overlooking the sea, spacious and with an unbelievable huge bathroom! I have no words to describe the location, the service, the amazing decoration, including the glass track-trains to get down to the breakfast room and to the gorgeous...

Daios Cove is a good contemporary Greek resort. Brilliant staff with large modern rooms, although lacking any real 'Greek' authenticity. You could be anywhere in the world. Built into the cliff side around a pretty cove although the surrounding countryside is baron and fairly unattractive. There is however one biggie that would stop me from ever returning: in a country...

It was our first family holiday in a hotel with our 1 year old daughter. When we arrived, the stunning building, modern, arty decor and faultless welcome procedure at once reminded me of the hotels we preferred pre-family and filled me with dread because they were never welcoming of children. It turned out we had found the best of both...

We had a great week at Daios cove, we stayed in a suite, which gave us loads of room with our son sleeping on a bed in the lounge, and we had a separate room with a lounge area. We had a huge patio and a private pool, but this was too cold in October to use. We had warm...
