Farrar Family - June 2017 (Guest)
The Porto Sani was a truly family friendly hotel - lots of activities to keep the kids entertained, huge variety of good
food, wonderful beaches, great facilities. The food was excellent as was the service in all of the restaurants, bars, pools and beaches. The approach to restaurant reservations was a little complicated and time consuming. My one recommendation would be to improve the information on options and how to book. Happy kids, huge variety of childcare activities, really good facilities, very friendly staff.
A private beach and views of Mount Olympus - what's not to love about the Sani, Halkidiki?
With views over Mount Olympus and the Aegean, the soft white sand and shallow water on Sanis private beach are perfect for tiny tootsies.
The long established Babewatch service, where experienced staff watch children while parents take a break, is available for those wanting to sunbathe in peace. And you neednt ever leave your sunlounger, as Beach Buddies deliver refreshments and snacks on request.
The Ofsted standard childrens clubs are run by UK childcare specialists and offer a range of activities including pool games, face-painting and arts and crafts.
