Our hotel/apartment was fantastic, clean and comfortable. Staff were incredibly friendly and made us feel incredibly welcome. We had everything we could possibly need and for so cheap. Pool is lovely and clean but only used it once as the sea is just across a road, fantastic for early morning and evening swimming with a beautiful backdrop. Wi-Fi and air conditioning both work well and for no extra charge at all. Only thing we felt was odd was the wardrobes yet no hangers, however there is plenty of storage space and even a washing dryer just outside your door. Incredible value for money, great relaxed atmosphere. We will be back!

I had a two bedroom apartment in Vangelis Villas. It is a very nice apartment, typical Cretan style. It has everything needed for a comfortable stay. The location is perfect. The apartments are facing the sea. There is a small, but very nice beach right there; there is also a swimming pool. Maria, the owner/manager is very accommodating and caring. She will do anything possible and impossible to make one's stay in Vangelis Villas very comfortable. It is necessary to have a car since there is really nothing there within a waling distance. There are a few nice tavernas in Istron, and Aghios Nikolaos is only a few km away.

Great place to stay. Very tempted to book next year's already. Up a steep drive so we left the car at the bottom, walked 10 mins into town, had a meal then walked back to the car and drove up the hill (off-road).
Views are stunning. We stayed 7-nights and could have stayed another 7. No sun on the balcony after 10 (suited me) but plenty of sun at the pool. Lack of sun on the windows kept the apartment cool. Every apartment has fantastic views so book with confidence.
There is a lot of slopes and steps though - so if you're not fit then this isn't for you.
Lots to see nearby. Only 30 mins drive to either Agios or to the South coast.

Really convenient for the town/village and beach, plus walking distance to all the nicest restaurants - do try the Okeanis - fabulous food and not your typical tourist fare. Staff were really helpful - Alex is great - and the rooms and pool are very comfortable, quiet and well looked after. Highly recommended, particularly for a quiet getaway!

Our stay was very early in the season, we arrived two days after opening and the hotel was quiet. The staff could not have been more helpful. We had a sea view bungalow which gave us a fantastic view of the gardens and the beautiful bay. The breakfast buffet was superb but because the hotel was so quiet the only restaurant open in the evening was the main buffet which very good but expensive.

I booked a 3 night package at the Daios Cove for my girl friend and myself. I planned to propose my GF there and the staff was very helpful in assisting my setting up the venue and providing the proper atmosphere to make this holiday
special for my girlfriend and myself.
The place itself is amazing, clean, quite and relaxing which is all you need on a holiday and the staff is extremely helpful in all you need.

What a wonderful 7 day break ! The rooms are spotlessly clean, site very well maintained. Facilities better than we expected- breakfast, lunch, dinner served each day - all good. Bar with coffee, wine etc tea. Shop selling essentials. Amazing manager and staff who bend over backwards to help with whatever you need.
Slight disappointment in beach, photos show umberlla etc but no sign, however it was low season. Lovely beaches within 10 minutes however. Pool very clean and covered at night.
We will return

We had a very relaxing holiday staying at this hotel. We had an excellent standard room (it was more like an apartment with a double bedroom, 2 bathrooms, lounge area & large balcony). On arrival we were escorted to and given a quick tour of our room by the manager. The welcome pack included sparkling wine and pastries along with a large bottle of water. Also on arrival, the hotel asked if there was any special occasion during our stay - as it was our wedding anniversary, they arranged to provide a cake (it was a delicious chocolate cake) after our restaurant dinner!
All the hotel staff were very polite, friendly and helpful. There was a huge variety available at the buffet breakfast, and table service was provided for ordering omelettes, pancakes, toast, tea/coffee. During our stay we ate at 2 of the hotel's a la carte restaurants, the food and ambience was superb, as was the service. The hotel's restaurants were a bit pricey (although the food is of a very high standard) but there were lots of reasonably priced tavernas nearby.
The hotel has landscaped gardens which were a delight to walk through on the way to breakfast/pool/beach. There were lots of options for sunbathing: 2 pools, a small beach and extensive terraced areas next to the beach, so we never had a problem getting suitable sunloungers. The hotel provides fresh towels every day for sunbathing and waiter service all day.
This hotel thoroughly deserves its 5 star rating. We would definitely stay here again.
