All of them staff were superb, but Gemma and Kathryn were particularly good with our boys.

Kids loved it which means we do too. Hotel very good, but Scott Dunn kids club makes it.

Excellent service from Joanne and Gemma in the kids club. Hugo loved his time at Daios Cove and many thanks to them. They are great assets to Scott Dunn.

A holiday is most relaxing when you know your kids are having a fantastic time. Hugo was impatient to get to the kids club every day - t...

Daios Cove is a super location (I would recommend a villa). Beautifully modern hotel with great facilities. The kids club was wonderful (what I have learnt to expect after my third holiday with Scott Dunn). Gemma and Catherine were just wonderful with my kids and Grace my elder daughter had tears...

Just to confirm what I'm sure you already suspected.....we had a great time at Daios Cove, so thank you and the team for all your support.

The girls had a wonderful time especially as the layout of the resort allowed plenty of freedom in absolute safety. Obviously that meant we were allow...

Mrs Ohna De Bruin (Guest)

This was the first time we've used Scott Dunn for our holiday and it was a very good experience. We thought the food at Daios Cove was very good. Dinners - outstanding (we had all of them in Pangea restaurant) with something for everyone.

Our son loved his time at Explorers. It's just a pi...

The crche was stunning and really made our holiday. The flexibility and timing and the fact that the kids were fed if required made mum and dads holiday as good as the kids.

Recommend Scott Dunn? Extremely likely due to the ease of the process from booking to return. There was never a question too small or too big that could not be answered. Everyone we came into contact with, either via email or personally, were professional and friendly.

We had an amazing 2 ...

Mrs Kate Baldwin (Guest)

Ted goes to full time nursery and I have never seen him so excited and running into his nursery as he does into the Explorers.

You can thoroughly relax as all the staff are so accommodating and "on the ball"

Mr Andrew Oldale (Guest)

Most memorable moment? Having more than 5 minutes without having one or both boys with us, for the first time in 2 years! On a more serious note, swimming in the sea and in the pool and creating wonderful memories with the boys.

I am confident that our friends would appreciate the care and...

Mrs Katie Weston (Guest)

Seeing our daughter try her best to jump with joy (which she can't because she's only 13 months) when we took her back to the children's club after a day away was wonderful and relieved all feelings of guilt for ditching her for time in the sun!

It's perfect; the hotel is lovely, all the s...

The holiday was wonderful. The Scott Dunn team were fantastic on holiday and could not have done enough for us. Kyle, who looked after Rupert for 2 days, was lovely; really wonderful.

M.D - May 2014 (Guest)

This is the first time we have booked through Scott Dunn. The reason we went with Scott Dunn was due to the kids club as we thought it would be good for our 2.5 year old daughter. Originally we didn't intend her to use the club everyday but perhaps a couple of hours and we were surprised to see h...

The childcare club was a highlight, since our son Oisin loved it and it enabled us to have a fantastic honeymoon. He liked it do much he was running to it even before the opening time.

"So shall we drop him off at the kids club?

It was a question asked more in hope than expectation. My wife arched a solitary eyebrow and cast me a look that was somewhere between disbelief and despair. Her answer was a perfectly weighted: Are you joking?

Was I joking? It was day o...

The Scott Dunn children's club is the best children's club that I have seen anywhere in Europe to date. The open plan space is perfect for children of all ages especially the little ones. I loved the new Explorer design and programme. If only I could be a child again!

The Scott Dunn childrens club is amazing. I wouldnt feel guilty for a second dropping off my 16 month old!!. Id feel more guilty not letting him go! The nannies are so lovely and I have never seen so many fun things for children to do. I was quite tempted to stay there myself!

From the minute you arrive at Daios Cove you're immersed in the spectacular views. The brochure photos really don't do it justice.

The service, the food there are some brand new chefs this year are outstanding. The staff cannot do enough for you and always have a smile on their face. The...

Whether you arrive by day or night, Daios Cove is equally as impressive. Built four years ago using only local materials it blends seamlessly into the rock face of the cove and has views to die for. The rooms, suites and villas are situated in rows enabling them all to take advantage of the breat...

Guest Comments

The hotel itself is magnificent, very modern, clean and with spectacular views, George and his colleagues in the kids club were nothing less than superb. George was superb. Ethine, Vicky and Suzy were wonderful & the kids could not have been bigger fans. They literally ran into their arms every day and never wanted to leave. Kessler family June 2011

The childcare facilities at Daios Cove and the nannies have been outstanding in every way. We planned for the kids just to spend mornings in the club but it has been difficult convincing them to leave! It has been a wonderful break for us all. The excursions to Olive farm, water park , aquarium have been great for the children. Kapila Family, August 2011

Hamish helped smooth everything from UK and childcare staff here were amazing and made the holiday for us all. Phillips family, August 2011

We can't say enough positive things about the Scott Dunn childcare, it makes our holiday and the children are very very happy! The children are so full of stories when we pick them up from the club and were in tears when we told them it was their last day! The children are never bored, always entertained and we managed to read our books, luxury! We can't recommend it enough! Thank you so much. Wood family, August 2011

Great service from first calling to enquire, quality of the hotel and quality of the childcare. Law family, August 2011.

Really couldn't have asked for more when it comes to kids club. My son had a great time and the girls are fantastic, they do a brilliant job and are a real credit to Scott Dunn. We collected Finlay from Kids club on the first day and he asked if he could go again tomorrow. This made our holiday very relaxing. We enjoyed the beach and were able to totally chill knowing that Finlay was in good hands. Stait family, Aug 2011.

Childcare and guest relations from Louise and the team was absolutely excellent. They really made our holiday.

Brilliant facilities and brilliant staff. We were very confident leaving our daughter in their care.

Best kids club ever, offering a really personal service, tailored to our boys needs.

Its a great holiday for young families. The boys loved the SD kids club and the club cart and funicular rides were a bonus! The only disappointing thing was that the pool was FREEZING.

Smooth and trouble free experience from booking to leaving, feeling like nothing is too much trouble and putting us, the family, at the centre of everything.

SD Childcare was perfect! Extremely loving, capable, wonderful!!!!!!! George was great!!! Giger family June 2011

Louise, Ellie,Tayler & Louise at the kids club have been brilliant, really fantastic and so good with the kids, couldn't have asked for more.

Great service & attention to detail.

Scott Dunn provide excellent holidays for families and their childcare is exceptional. The facilities and staff at Daios Cove were brilliant.

The kids club has been a huge success and we're full of praise for the excellent Scott Dunn nannies. A big thank you to Louise and her team!

The Scott Dunn childcare team were superb. They made it a truly fabulous holiday for us all. Reliable and totally dedicated staff.

Excellent customer service before and during my holiday.

Quality and friendly on-site staff. Ease of booking and advice given on choice of holiday.

Scott Dunn take the hassle out of travelling with children. Reassuringly expensive....

The girls at the SD kids club are amazing and we couldn't be happier. In particular, Nicole, Tayler and Louise- but all of them are so good at their jobs and made our stay SO much more enjoyable as the boys loved the kids club! Thank you.

Resort: wonderful view, beautiful suite, very private & quiet and daughter was happy all the time.

Staff at the scott dunn nursery were fantastic. Vanderbroeck family June 2011

Excellent resort with excellent childcare.

It is our 3rd experience with SD and from initial enquiry to resort, the service is second to none. The child care aspect is important to us and the care is second to none with staff that genuinely care.

Scott Dunn's service was very good indeed. Your staff at Daios Cove are great. The nannies were great with our kids and George worked really hard to look after us. Silburn family June 2011

The whole experience has felt very tailor made and personal. Everyone in the Scott Dunn team that we have encountered has been not only very professional but a pleasure to deal with. Thank you. James Family, July 2011.

George has been fabulous at dealing with all aspects of our stay, very helpful at suggesting where to go and where to eat .... definitely a case of service with a smile. As for the nannies, our children have had a ball and have made our stay so easy. Bravo! James Family, July 2011.

George, Eithne and Susie were amazing. Really friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Our boys loved the club and used to ask to go in the mornings which meant we were worry free and had a relaxing time. Larkin Family, July 2011.

The Scott Dunn children's club should be rolled out worldwide, it allowed the kids to have a wonderful holiday and us as parents to have the flexibility to relax as and when we wanted guilt free. We think you have identified a gap in the market...there are lots of parents who are more than willing to pay to have this type of experience when the rest of their lives are time poor. Kessler family, June 2011.

The quality of childcare and accommodation on offer means that we will be happy and have no stress about what things might be like when we arrive. The kids adore the kids club and even choosing a different location (The Hutchinson family have previously stayed in Pine Cliffs) we knew we'd have a great holiday. Hutchinson family, August 2011
