The resort's architecture characterises a traditional Greek village and combined with its modern decor creates a delightful resort that blends in perfectly with the surrounding countryside in North Eastern Crete.

The resort offers 300 rooms, suites and villas, each exuding a homely atmosphere, with complimentary in-room tea and coffee service, natural cotton linen and towels, and king sized beds. Choose between the Deluxe Sea View Rooms or the Junior Sea View Suites for elegant decorated accommodation.

Or for extra privacy and luxury the spacious Villas are wonderful quarters and the Cove Club concept offers a range of services exclusively for villa guests.

There are several activities to choose from: Exercise those muscles in the state of the art fitness centre, with a choice of saunas and the stimulating Wet Area. Or explore the local countryside on foot. Alternatively, lie back on one of the sun beds on the private beach (reached by funicular) and enjoy the Cretan sun and cool off in the crystalline waters of the Aegean Sea, or enjoy a drink at your pool sun lounger from the pool bar. Alternatively indulge in the Spa by Germaine de Capuccini, which has treatments and facilities to calm the mind, cleanse the body and rejuvenate the soul.

Daios Cove presents a variety of cuisine within its restaurants, from local Crete dishes, to Mediterranean meals and International dining. All of the restaurants offer stunning views of the bay and the surrounding area, and creates a beautiful environment to dine in.

Customer Hotel Reviews

Chris Aldrin says:

I'd like to thank you for organising our superb trip around the Greek islands. We thought your customer service, organisation and booking of the trip was excellent. Everything ran like clockwork during our trip. From our pick up at the airport and ports, all our tickets for the ferries, our welcomes at each resort and the amazing accommodation. Being upgraded to the Honeymoon Suite at The Grace Santorini, for my 50th Birthday was a wonderful surprise, as was the cake we received at Daios Cove for the occasion. We had a wonderful holiday in beautiful surroundings , and it made for a memorable celebration of my 50th Birthday. We would't hesitate in recommending your company and in fact I already have to friends.

James Coyne says:

The resort was absolutely perfect in every respect. Service, accommodation, food and transport arrangements could not be faulted and the style of the resort was so different from traditional hotels it added an extra dimension to the holiday.

Dear Kerry,

I have meant to write to you on our return from Daios Cove in Crete - Greece.
We enjoyed our holiday very much. The hotel was very good, the staff superb, and the food was good as it was variable.
The one downside was the fact that the hotel was very isolated, and thus you were basically confined to the hotel unless one hired a car which we did.
The private transfers were great and all in all we had a very peaceful and relaxing holiday.
Many thanks.
Kind Regards,

Henry Costello
