We had a wonderful deal from Expedia, with 2 deluxe sea view suites with private pools and the hotel ensured we were next door to our 3 sons' room. The beach and water sports were great (though the latter were pricey) and we spent many happy hours at the beach, we water skied, did inner tubing, scuba dived, and kept...

Beautiful, large, resort in great shape with nice views of a beach and bay, and clean, modern rooms. Ours had a small infinity pool. For the price, we were disappointed though: - Tough to get around the resort, one needs to call a golf cart to move around (although the carts are very responsive and come immediately) - Within the...

Stayed for a week half board with access to Taverna & Ocean menus. The Pangea food could be a bit bland - not in your face Greek flavours. Taverna was good. Did not try the Ocean. Travel round the site could be complicated if you wanted to walk. In particular there was no clear walking alternative to Funicular C. This...

Just returned from a fabulous 10 day holiday with our 5 year old son. We booked a deluxe room with a private pool. Both exceeded our expectations. The pool was more private than we expected, as it was not directly neighbouring any others. We also had the sun all day. The views from our room and around the resort were...

Beautiful setting, amazing views from every room, extremely spacious bedrooms and great facilities. Excellent Spa. Mostly what stood out is the exceptional service provided by every single member of staff! Truly a five-star experience!

Good luxury resort, with plenty of scope for improvement. Some points (pros and cons). 1. Spacious and elegant rooms with integrated deck and mini-pool. Nice sea view. -Good for children. Rooms are kept reasonably clean. 2. Understaffed. Despite the massive effort from the staff, they are largely outnumbered by the many guests the structure is prepared to accept. Some issues...

Just returned from a truly memorable week at Daios Cove with my wife and 2 year old son. The hotel itself was amazing. We had a delux room with pool which was more than big enough for the 3 of us. We were shown around the 2 and 3 bedroom villas by Konstantinos the front office manager which were stunning....

This is a really nice place - we ended up in a room with a pool after the first room we were given received no sun at all. The hotel staff sorted this out very quickly even if it did cost more money.We'd booked through Scott Dunn and thought we were getting a room with a pool, but this wasn't...

Just returned and overall very pleased with the resort. Views are amazing, and the facilities are excellent. We had a family room with plunge pool which was a lovely quiet place to relax when we wanted some private time. For half board, we usually ate in the indoor white room to avoid eating outdoors which was our only niggle, too...
