When our taxi stopped at the entrance we were met by member of staff who welcomed us by name before escorting us to the bar for our check in. After a welcome drink we were taken to our beautiful room by the same hostess. We were fortunate to be upgraded to a delightful suite, which was the height of luxury....

We were the amongst the first guests of 2014, arriving for the Easter break. According to reception, the hotel was operating at half capacity. Unfortunately, it was evident that many of the staff were completely new to the hotel, possibly to a service career and that the hotel was not quite ready for full service. The main buffet restaurant would...

Been here for 5 nights now with 2 to go. We arrived late and the hotel had left a welcome tray of cold food and a bottle of wine which was extremely 'welcome'. The complex is in a beautiful setting and I had a deluxe sea view with private pool. The sea view was difficult to see as there were...

We stayed at this lovely resort hotel for 10 days until the end of September and the hotel and service were excellent. The rooms/villas are very well appointed and spacious and we had a large comfortable balcony with great uninterrupted sea views and this was in a basic deluxe sea view room. The staff are delightful & helpful in all...

From time of arrival till the end we were looked after very well. I do not understand why people are moaning about restaurants there, as I found them all very nice, especially Tavern.

We had a great Holiday because the service was great, the facilities were excellent and the food was very nice. Everybody, no one excepted, worked with a big smile, even at the end of the season. The room was very clean and the view was outstanding. The resort is built in a way that you have a lot of privacy...

We've just returned from a lovely and relaxing 7 days at Daios Cove. Our room, which was on the 7th level, was very spacious and well equipped. The lighting options in the room are very good with some quirky features. The daily servicing of the rooms has to be commended - thanks for being so efficient. The pool is well...

A stunning hotel, set in its own private bay. The rooms are impressive with beautiful marble finishes and stunning bathrooms. We had a private pool but it was far too cold to use and very expensive to have heated. The main restaurant is a buffet which we didn't expect in a luxury hotel, the other restaurants are excellent but a...

We are on our penultimate day here at Daios Cove and have had a really lovely holiday. I intended to write this when we returned, but having a few minutes, I thought that we would get some thoughts down whilst we were looking at the truly lovely view from our deck.
