Daios Cove

Vathi, ££££

Just ten minutes from the bustling town of Agios Nikolaos, Daios Cove infuses contemporary aesthetics with authentic character, allowing it to integrate seamlessly into its natural hillside setting overlooking the sea and pretty cove. With 300 beautifully-styled rooms and suites set around the resort's extensive grounds, this is by no means a small and intimate establishment, yet its superior standards of service and wide array of facilities make for a most enjoyable stay. Most of the rooms feature their own private seawater pool yet there is also an outdoor infinity pool and separate children's pools to minimise disruption, not to mention its own private beach, blissfully lapped by the waves of the Aegean.

Insider Viewpoint

When travelling en famille, it's often difficult to find a location and indeed resort which ticks all the boxes for parents and children alike. With its enviable location, near-guaranteed sunshine and plethora of activities, Daios Cove more than satisfies both the young and young at heart. Small and intimate this isn't, yet the feeling of spaciousness and the countless activities on offer ensure that tranquillity is preserved and you're not jostling for position around the pool and on the beach. We particularly loved the Grecian and Cretan cuisine served at the Taverna, very tasty and healthy thus allowing for one extra cocktail at Crystal Box before bed!
