Hotel description

If you’re looking for a relaxing holiday and a range of services and facilities in a typical Mediterranean style then you’ll love this hotel. With its 300 rooms, the Daios Cove is one of the larger hotels in Crete, but its sprawling resort-style set-up means that it doesn’t jar with the landscape at all. Its buildings are dotted up the hillside directly above the bay of Agios Nikolaos and offer far-reaching Mediterranean Sea views. Guests have a wide range of rooms to choose from, as well as a modern spa and several restaurants to enjoy. All of this is complemented by a really friendly and professional team of staff. The only difficult decision you’ll have to make is whether you prefer the magical infinity pool or the hotel’s own beach.

The room options at the Daios Cove range from luxurious double rooms with spacious living areas and a private terrace (50sqm in total) to the family villa with three bedrooms and a huge outdoor area including a private swimming pool (180sqm in total). The public areas are finished off with a luxurious flair and include the Ocean Restaurant (gourmet Italian cuisine) and a stylishly furnished pool area.

Food & drink: Delicious themed buffets & Mediterranean cuisine à la carte
The day starts with a varied breakfast buffet. If you book a villa or a room with a terrace, you can also have breakfast brought to your room for you to enjoy in the sunshine. For lunch and dinner there are 3 restaurants to choose from: The Pangea Restaurant offers changing themed buffets for guests with half or full board. The Ocean Restaurant serves Italian à la carte gourmet cuisine. And the Taverna Restaurant offers Greek specialties with a focus on freshly caught Mediterranean fish. There’s also a beautiful open air lounge bar by the pool which serves snacks, cold drinks and cocktails during the day.
