We cam back from this hotel a couple of weeks ago so I've had time to think long and hard about our time there. let me start by addressing other reviewers complaints. 1. The funicular seems to be a hot topic for debate so here goes. Our room was at the very top level of the funicular so I can...

Just returned from a week at this resort-luxury by name, luxury by nature! We'd booked a deluxe seaview room with private pool but were very fortunate to be upgraded to a one bedroom seaview suite with private pool and it was absolutely amazing-seperate living room, well equipped bathroom with the best hair dryer I've ever had in a hotel, walk...

We have just had a wonderful relaxing week in Daios Cove. The staff in the hotel have all been exceptionally helpful and charming. When we had a couple of issues they were remedied immediately. The resort is absolutely beautiful. All the rooms were luxurious, with very large bathrooms and stunning views. We had a pool, but didn't use it as...

This hotel is a "place" that is separate from the real world and it is a wonderful and heavenly place and worth every accolade you will read about it elsewhere. The history of its creation and the passion and determination to be "beyond special" is a credit to the dedication of the Daios family and their team. The staff are...

When our taxi stopped at the entrance we were met by member of staff who welcomed us by name before escorting us to the bar for our check in.

We were the amongst the first guests of 2014, arriving for the Easter break. According to reception, the hotel was operating at half capacity. Unfortunately, it was evident that many of the staff were completely new to the hotel, possibly to a service career and that the hotel was not quite ready for full service. The main buffet restaurant would...
