12th September 2013 – After an early flight from Gatwick with Easyjet, we arrived at Thessaloniki on time. We collected our hire car and drove to the Elegant 5* Danai Beach Resort & Villas in Halkidiki – helped along the way with our Sat Nav which we had taken with us.
Upon arrival we were greeted with a welcome drink and were then shown to our Suite with its own private pool. We spent 4 nights at this beautiful hotel which has just 55 suites and 5 villas. Lovely sandy beach with well spaced loungers and umbrellas. 3 restaurants – Not to be missed is a romantic candlelit dinner on the beach.
Opinion. A really luxurious, elegant, calm and peaceful hotel. Member of the Leading Hotels of the World.
After 4 nights we moved to the Sani Resort which consists of 4 hotels along a nice sandy area of beach. The Sani Beach Hotel with over 400 rooms, the 5 star Sani Beach Club with 205 rooms, the 5* deluxe Boutique Hotel Asterias Suites with about 50 rooms or the 5* deluxe Porto Sani Village with about 100 rooms. I chose the latter as I prefer a smaller hotel. The resort is great for families offering a wide range of accommodation from interconnecting rooms to one and two bedroom suites. Crèche from 4 months upward and children’s clubs from 4 years. Lots of sports and entertainment across the resort. A central Marina with a large choice of restaurants so you do not have to eat in the hotels all the time if you don’t want to.
Opinion. A large very well run and maintained resort. Great for families. Staff extremely good and helpful. I would definitely visit again.
