Wow! our stay at Danelis was amazing. Both Markos and Nikos are such brilliant hosts, they go the extra mile to ensure all their guests are happy. All the facilities were in superb condition and honestly both the brothers company was splendid. We really did feel right at home at Danelis, we were so sad to leave. We've already decided that we will return next year as we had such an amazing time this time. As we're both vegetarian and don't drink alcohol, Nikos catered to our dietary requirements, nothing was too much for both him and his brother. It was so wonderful to witness how they truly cared about their guests, they were super attentive and honestly just amazing. This hotel may be a 3 star hotel but the service and facilities provided are definitely 5 star. Nikos, Markos thank you so much for making our holiday one of the best holidays we've ever been on. Both you brothers are so hard working and such a pleasure to be around. We'll see you next year!

There really is nothing negative I could possibly say about my stay at Danelis. The location, staff, apartment, pool area and everything in Danelis is amazing. From the moment me and my sister stepped off the bus and saw the outside of Danelis we were speechless. It looked absolutely amazing! Once we walked in, we were greeted by the lovely Nikos who I must say impressed the socks off us with his service. After looking through a number of resorts (including 4 an 5 star resorts prior to booking an apartment with Danelis) we were super confused as to which one to stay in. Now, having stayed at Danelis I must say we made an excellent choice, I don't believe we would have enjoyed our time in Crete as much as we did if we had stayed anywhere else. Nikos, Markos you both are such amazing people, thank you so much for your hospitality. We most certainly will be returning to Danelis next year, thank you for everything.

I honestly can't work out why this is a 3 star resort, in my eyes I would say it's between 4 and 5 stars. Absolutely amazing!

Fab holiday. Markus and Nikos two brothers who run it definitely do go that extra mile to look after you. Lovely pool area, so clean and plenty of sunbeds. Apartments are clean and basic.
Pool bar is reasonably priced selling a good range of food and drinks, open all day and late at night 2am. Nikos makes lovely cocktails and will tailor them to you if you fancy some think a bit different. Yamas!!

Malia has the strip, had a great steak at the bull, also had lots of meals in old town Malia. Plenty of choice.

Well our 2nd visit to Danelis this year - and our 6th in total! We just love these apartments, the owners, the location and Malia. Clean apartments that offer everything you need for a good nights sleep, small kitchenette so you can enjoy your own coffe n toast sat out on a morning, excellent hosts, Nikos and Makis, superb pool and outside area that is clean and uncrowded. No fighting for sun beds here. Enjoy a beer, cocktails or coffees from the bar and excellent home cooked food provided by Makis's wife, Sophia. Great breakfasts, snacks, and traditional Greek gyros, Dakos and much more. Already booked to go back 2019.
