My husband and I have just returned from Daios Cove. We stayed in Premium Pool Suite which was absolutely lovely, plenty of space and lovely outdoor terrace with a nice pool. The water was on the chilly side, but I had been made aware of that before we travelled. That didn't spoil the enjoyment for us. Staff in the restaurants, especially in the Ocean Restaurant were superb. Efficient and friendly, whatever you wanted they would try and get it for you. We had a lovely young lady by the name of Sonia serving us at breakfast and sometimes at dinner too. Christophoros, the pool barman was very good at making fantastic cocktails especially my favourite, Margaritas. Staf at reception the guest relations department went out of their way to make you feel welcome. Pre departure covid test were available at the medical centre at the hotel and results were emailed an hour or so after they had been taken. The hotel pool is lovely and there was plenty of space but nearer the end of our stay the hotel was more or less full and that made it also busier by the pools and on the beach. The beach was our least favourite spot even though we did enjoy swimming in the sea. Too crowded for our liking, but it didn't spoil the fun we had at this beautiful and very friendly hotel. Thank you all at Daios Cove for having given us and wonderful 10 days!

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.

I actually stayed at this beautiful hotel in august 2020. We stayed in the deluxe room with private pool. The views are amazing out to sea. Really enjoyed the adult only area for breakfast & really enjoyed the Greek taverna in the hotel. This hotel is also great for families, with its calm waters and fun activities. But also great for adults, I would recommend this hotel & visit again.

I had the very unfortunate experience of testing positive for Covid whilst staying at Daios Cove this month. I think its most likely that I contracted the virus in London at the theatre or in a restaurant in the days before I travelled but started to feel unwell a couple of days into my holiday. As with most travellers this is the nightmare scenario when my wife and I were suddenly looking at 10 days or more in isolation which took us well over our intended departure date. The in house medical team at Daios were extremely supportive as were guest relations. They quickly calmed our nerves and informed us that they had empty rooms set aside for the situation which they moved us to. We explained to the Greek authorities that we did not need to go to their quarantine hotel and spent the next 10 days relaxing in a beautiful room living from the extensive room service menu. We have stayed at this hotel before and it is amazing. This experience confirmed that a well run and well managed hotel is an absolute must in these very strange times and I would have no hesitation in recommending Daios Cove. Assuming you don't get ill the facilities are 5 star and we have already booked our return!
