BFB's Overview


Nestled on an essentially private beach a short drive from the attractive marina town of Aghios Nikolaos, Daios Cove Luxury Resort & Villas is the quintessential family-friendly large boutique hotel.

Perfect for water babies, many of the rooms, suites and villas come with the added luxury of sleek individual pools and there’s a wide range of water sports available for all ages – even those as young as 4 can learn to water-ski! Added to that, it has the largest spa on the island and brilliant kid’s facilities from crèche and kids club, to play areas and handy nursery kit from strollers to sterilisers. Even better, on selected dates, Baby Boltholes clients can claim that most elusive and, some might say, priceless of bonuses… a two hour (7am-9am) lie-in babysitting service, which sees babysitters march little ones off for breakfast and playdates, whilst parents snooze.

Catering for families of all shapes and sizes the cliff side resort has a variety of rooms, suites and villas, many of which come with their own pools. The sea views are spectacular and the facilities aren’t far behind. Along with the aforementioned spa and kid’s clubs, there’s a trio of restaurants, an impressive heated (year round) infinity swimming pool, virtually private sandy beach, water sports/sailing centre, mini market, boutiques and more.

Families tend to head straight to the infinity pool which is supervised and heated year round. It’s a wonderful spot to take in the view and, as well as life guard supervision it also has a thoughtful children’s section so little ones can splash about safely and parents can relax with a book and drink without being on tenterhooks. The poolside Ocean restaurant is ideal for parents looking to enjoy a leisurely lunch as they can take their time with their food while little ones play by the pool.

The resorts beach is another draw. It may not be massive but the clean, sandy shores lead to calm shallow waters. There’s plenty of sunbeds and umbrellas for shading little ones from the midday sun. The beach bar’s sunbed waiter service is the real icing on the cake - we recommend the mango margarita! Those not content to sun worship and splash about in the sea can enjoy a variety of water sports with everything from inflatable sofa rides to water-skiing, laser sailing, wind surfing and boat rides available. There’s a professional PADI certified diving school and lessons are available for children ages 8+.

Back on dry land the resort provides a wealth of activities from personal training sessions in the state of the art gym to yoga classes, Pilates and tennis. The spa is a haven of relaxation with an indoor, saltwater infinity pool, a second pool with hydro massage and counter current (heated), a beauty room, hairdresser, Thai massage studio and variety of treatment rooms. Unfortunately, the spa area is off limits to those under 16 years old but is a great retreat when little ones are busy enjoying the kids club or crèche.

The resorts childcare services are run by Ofsted accredited, UK company The Worldwide Kids Co. It hosts a varied programme for children ages 4 months – 11 years. The kids club for 4 years + is free of charge and open 6 days a week (7 in July & August). It has sessions in the morning, afternoon and evening plus further supervised dining session at lunchtime and dinner which is approx. 20 euros per meal per child. The crèche is charged as extra and caters for children ages 4 month-4 years. It offers morning and afternoon sessions (plus the supervised dining sessions mentioned above).

Daios Cove is a rare gem. A luxury five-star resort, truly geared up for families from the safe beach to the array of available baby gear, 24-hour medical care, children’s menus and exceptional childcare services it has all been thoughtful designed to enjoy a really relaxing family holiday.

Location Information

Daios Cove nestles on a hillside above an almost private sandy bay mid-way between the pretty fishing towns of Aghios Nikolaos and Elounda. Its is less than 10minutes drive by car or hotel-arranged taxi to either and both have a range of good quality waterside bars and tavernas, as well as boutiques and mini markets. No trip to Aghios Nikolaos is complete without a visit to the carefully preserved Byzantine chapel of St Nicholas, built during the 7th century AD.

Also not to be missed is a boat trip to the Ventian-style ancient fortress of Spinalonga, made famous by the Victoria Hislop bestseller 'The Island'. Private trips can be arranged via Daios Cove's watersports centre.

For lovers of archaeology and history, a day trip to Knossos is a must. It has one of the best preserved Minoan era palaces in all Greece and is said to be both the location where Theseus killed the Minotaur and Icarus began the flight that took him too close to the sun.


Nearest Medical Services: The hotel has an on-call English speaking doctor and the nearest A&E is in Agios Nikolaos.

Nearest Airport: The nearest airport is Heraklion which is around an hour away by car. Alternatively, Chania is around a 3.5hr drive.
