First time at Crete - We had a lovely week of relaxation at this family run Hotel. (15/10 -22/10) A big thank you to all the family and Anna for looking after us with their friendly advice on things to do in the area. Hope to see you all again in the near future.

Just came back from a week of relaxation staying at Danelis. Nikos, Mikas, mum, dad, Anna all very friendly and welcoming. Great place to stay with the old town and strip just a short walk away. Great pool and plenty of sunbeds to choose from. Nikos makes an amazing cocktail but beware of raki....😂😂 Missing Kevin 😻😻 and make sure you look after the babies

We have just returned home from a 2 week holiday at Danelis, what an absolute treasure of a place. The hosts Makis and Nikos were absolutely outstanding with the service, banter and everything else that makes your holiday. The rooms are perfect for your stay, cleaned and changed regularly by the lovely Anna and literally nothing is to much trouble. Great snack bar and menu very reasonably priced and cooked to perfection by Mama, the English Breakfast and Cheese Toasties highly recommend. Cocktails no problem! Anything you want and a great variety of Spirits. Ideally located away from the main strip (10 mins walk) and perfect for The Old Town (10 mins also). This is a gem of a place and we met many return guests this time of year. Tips: Beach Towels are provided for your sunbeds, loads of sunbeds and a fabulous pool. Visitors leave sun lotions after their stay for other guests to use which is really good. Can’t say enough about this place other than I totally understand why you have so many return visitors, keep it up boys cause you are doing an amazing job 😎 And please look after Kevin cause I’m missing him as much as you 😢

Stayed here with a friend for a week and from arriving you are made to feel like part of the danelis family. The apartments are what you would expect from looking at the pictures and price. The pool and bar area is a great place to relax delicious food and drinks available, music to suit everyone played throughout the day, and additional pool and darts board. The environment created by Marcos and Nikos is like no other. The place is filled with laughter & love, I was so sad to leave. Will definitely return to danelis apartments in the near future 😃
