My daughter won this holiday in a competition. We had a sea view and our own pool - but late September is too cool to use the pool for anything more than a quick swim - if you are brave. But the deck around the pool was good for chilling - except it was over looked by the funiculars when...

Stunning from start to finish. Slightly overpriced food and drink though, which smarts at times. Beautiful facilities, though spa a let down. Lots of choice to sit, rest, eat. Though not perfect...minor niggles but one doesn't expect any in a place such as this. Looks great for families too. I'd return.

My husband and I stayed at Daios Cove for one week at the end of September. It was a lovely resort and well thought out. The bedrooms were beautiful and very comfortable. Unfortunately we had a lovely terrace but no sun, this was a disappointment so we never used it. The beach was lovely and we much preferred it to...

We stayed in the middle of October and were lucky enough to have good weather, albeit it was quite windy on a few days. The hotel is fantastic. Great rooms and facilities in a beautiful setting. The beach is great and the water clear (except on very windy days). There is a dive instructor on site who was very helpful...

Amazing service, cannot wait to visit again! Overall, as a couple, we don't like resorts but this is something special. It has the feeling of a boutique hotel in the quality but is a big resort. The gym, pools, bar and restaurants were all incredible. Breakfast was amazing too. Once here, you don't want to leave! The only small downside...

A lovely location. The food is excellent and the rooms are spotlessly clean. All the staff work hard to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Thank you Anna and Maria for looking after us so well ! To make this experience five star it would be great if there was a shuffle bus into town, even if you had...

The first thing to say in writing this review is, remember all is comparative and depends what you are used to. If you have been to Dubai for example, or the Far East, this 5 star hotel doesn't compare, however they make a good effort and overall is a good, well run hotel that caters for families. I spent 5...

We have come back for a second time as we just love it. Relaxing place, great staff, lovely restaurants and really nice location. It is not cheap means but it really makes for a wonderful holiday and on top of that the pricing is what you would expect from a five star resort. You always get a sense of arrival...

Arriving at the Daios Cove is different as you step out of the taxi all you see is a lift. Once in it you descend to the reception area of the hotel. Modern yet made out of stone it has the feel of a luxury resort. Having read reviews before I booked I requested a high up room. They took...
