The resort is particularly popular with parents with children between 4 months and 13 years old for its dedicated childcare facilities, including an Explorers Club, qualified childcare staff and fun activities such as treasure hunts and days at the beach. Toys, games, creative activities and more are offered making sure that the entire family enjoys a much-needed break in the sun.
Each of the resort’s restaurants boasts a children’s menu and for adults there’s a choice between delicious local Greek cuisine, chic Italian fusion foods and international cuisine with themed nights.
Pampering is an essential part of a luxury holiday, with Daios Cove’s spa offering a selection of treatments aimed at balancing, energising and revitalising using the best products available. Excursions to Crete’s many archaeological sites of interest can be arranged, with millennia-old Knossos the highlight for its legend of Theseus and the Minotaur and its position as the heart of the Minoan Empire.
