Wonderful, great amenities and service are fantastic.
Lexi was superb, she definitely understood what we wanted and recommended the right place for us. Having looked around the resort, she took our tastes and wishes into opinion and created the right perfect holiday choice. My contact with Cecile regarding our documents and transfers were also first class. Everything was beautifully presented.
A top class company that puts guest satisfaction above everything else! Thank you so much.
The most beautiful resort I have been to outside the Caribbean and service that just cant be beaten - we felt special.
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.

The long white sandy beach, lush rolling hills dissolving into the crystal clear water and the yachts and boats bobbing away in the marina. It's easy to think that you're enjoying a rum cocktail in the caribbean rather than a Mojito in the Greek islands! The Sani beach resort is the perfect resort to escape the everyday routine of life and indulge in all the luxuries on offer. My perfect day was and invigorating early morning swim followed by a breakfast at Asteria suites. A couple of hours on the beach escaping with a good book, before a Greek meze at the Ouzerie. Tennis and a bike ride through the Sani forest. This was followed by back & neck message and sauna in the Spa. The evenings involved pre dinner drinks at the Marina whilst the sun set before dinner at the Tomata. My perfect Mediterranean getaway!
