We spent our honeymoon in Danaos Beach Hotel in June 2011.
We liked this hotel because of the following reasons:
- It was really close to the sea and the scene was just beautiful. The hotel is directly on the beach which is covered by sand, however there are many stones in the first few meters in the water, so water shoes are recommended.
- Our room was practically furnished with a small kitchenette and it was always clean because the cleaning staff came every day.
- This is a family run hotel and the owners, Kostas and Katarina, were always very nice to us. Once they organised a party for the guests with greek salad, melone wine and raki and of course with very good greek music. It was good to stay in a hotel where the athmosphere is so friendly.
So everything was very good in connection with the hotel BUT Sfakaki is a big NOTHING. There is not any nice street to walk, the supermarket is quite far away the hotel (there is a small one near the hotel but the assortment is very small) and there isn't anything to see. It has only one advantage that is close to Rethimno.
So I only recommend this hotel to those who would like to rent a car and go to trips alone or to those who do not want to step out of the hotel and just want to sunbathe and relax on the beach or next to the pool all the day.
Actually we were the first type so we rented car and made some trips alone.
