Reviewed 24 September 2012

We stayed for one week here in September, Room was for three but the extra bed was far too small for an adult, so one of us got a room in the Katerina apartment next door. Rooms have a fridge and small 2 ring cooker and sink. Danny's is a very nice hotel with two seperate pools, the back on is quiet and nice shade as it was so hot. Food excellant and the Greek Dancing night is great especially if you have children. The local beach in Alykansas is so warm and clear you can just jump straight in. Night life quiet, some good restaurants around and a few cocktail bars.

Room Tip: Beds are not comfortable especially the third one, springs sticking out.. AC is available, and they...

We dont usually go to the same place twice but this year we returned to Dannys and were not dissapointed. We went for a bit of peace and quiet and the sunshine and we got both. There are a few bars on the main road that cater for the younger generation so the resort caters for all really. Everyone is so happy and really want to help you enjoy your stay . Especially the staff at Dannys . Special mention to Yanni and Iona , Stellios and Julia . Dennis and Dana ( sorry if spellings are wrong) and of course Costa . Costa is on the go all day looking after the grounds and has a smile for you whenever he passes. Several of the rooms in the complex have been updated to a high standard so dont let the cheap price fool you. Bed was a little hard for us but we soon got used to it. As last year the food was fantastic and the entertainment on site and in the town was great. I can see why so many go back year after year. For the next few years we will continue to explore some more of the world but at least we know that if we get stuck or get fed up wandering there is always Dannys . Tips to improve your experience. Take a smile and leave your worrys at home. Tip the cleaner a small amount each day. The shop really isnt that much more expensive than the rest of the resort . Water was 1.8 E for 6 x 1litre bottles . Drink lots of water . The Greek night is great , The food is excellent and more than enough . Cocktails in Dannys bar were 5E but if you go elswhere they can be cheaper but not as strong . Car rental close by at end of road and bike rental a short walk down the beach road on the left side. The bay is really two beaches. The nearest has parasol and two chairs for 5E . Lots of restaurants in the area , we had a great meal and great coffee at Bekiris . Efharisto poli Dannys we will return one day .

Room Tip: Email the hotel well in advance and let them know. All rooms have balconys and either have sun in th...

Me and my boyfriend have just arrived back from 2 weeks at Dannys and we couldn't have asked for a better holiday. We were a little worried at what the hotel might be like as it was a cheap price so we were pleasantly suprised to say the least. The whole hotel complex is lovely, with 2 great pools, plenty of sun loungers and sun terraces, a supermarket, a fab pool bar and the brilliant dannys bar. But above all the best thing about the hotel is how clean it is and how friendly the staff are. Our room was perfect, with a big balcony overlooking one pool, and it was cleaned every day.
A short walk to the beach from the hotel and the best restaurant we ate at was directly facing the hotel, with the best bar (Busters) just at the end of the road. Alykanas resort is fab, plenty of places to eat and drink (even for a young couple like us).
Hired a car from Giant car rentals near the hotel just for one day and drove right around the island in about 6 hours with stop offs - a must if you want to see all the beautiful island has to offer. Also took a boat trip round the island, a trip to banana beach, the public bus to Zakynthos and the day trip to Olympia - all fantastic trips.
Overall a great hotel in a great resort on a beautiful island, would highly recommend and will definately be returning.

Clean apartments, well equipped. Yannis is the greatest bloke you could wish to meet. I mentioned that I wanted to go scuba diving & within minutes, he'd done an internet search & had a phone number for me. He even let me use his phone to make arrangements.
I don't think I ever paid the full price for a meal, Yannis always knocked some of the cost off.

Stelios in Dannys Bar was also brilliant. There was something on most nights, either quizzes, pool knockouts or a Greek night. We had a birthday in our party of 12, so Stelios had balloons & banners out & we were able to order a cake through Yannis.

It was a 10 minute walk to the beach, but we were situated close to the local tavernas.

Room Tip: From what I could see, all of the rooms were good

We have just returned from two weeks at Danny's and we had a fantastic time. We are a family of four with teenagers ages 14 (nearly 15) and 17. We booked a studio and we were a little apprehensive in case it proved to be a bit cramped. However, when we arrived we found two very spacious bedrooms, a lovely balcony looking out on to the pool and a small kitchenette which was certainly adequate for two weeks. (If you plan on doing a lot of your own catering I would perhaps take some additional cutlery as this seemed to be in short supply. We did not request more so it is possible we could have had more if we had asked). The bathroom was also fine. Danny's is spotlessly clean and sheets and towels are changed regularly. We also used the bar and the pool bar where everyone was very friendly and the prices very good. If I have one criticism it is that the pool is smaller than we expected and there was not much room for a swim with all the kids splashing about. The Kali Pigi pool is also quite small. However, the kids were having the time of their lives and it was good to witness this. We found that you could get sunbeds later in the day but not in the morning as they were mostly taken.

Danny's is only a few minutes walk from the beach and we tended to spend most of our time there. The beach is beautiful and perfect for small children because it is so shallow. Further out it is great for swimming and so so warm (in August). Golden sand. Heavenly. We loved the beach and we spent time at the Valais (en route from Danny's to the beach) where we could buy food and drinks and then use their (bigger and quieter) pool.

We went on trips to the caves and the shipwreck and also to Zakynthos town. We enjoyed both.

Alykanas is a lovely town with its assortment of shops, tavernas and pubs. All in all we had a fantastic holiday and we would certainly return to Dannys. Just one thing upset me and that was the poor dog who lives in a tree on the route from Dannys to the beach through the olive groves. It was chained to the tree so it could not venture far and no-one seemed to bother much with it although the horses nearby were very well cared for. I found this upsetting as it often needed water or some food. (I was buying it dog food). It was clear that other tourists were concerned as well by the amount of food that was appearing. However, if the Greeks want us to visit again and boost their economy they are going to have to put animal welfare higher on their agenda. I would visit Danny's again. The four of us loved it but if anyone takes any note of this review can something be done to help that poor dog.

Room Tip: We were on the third floor overlooking the pool and it was very spacious.

Ioannis and Dannys also marketed as Dannys and kali pigi is a family run hotel, We spent two weeks here July/August during a freaky heatwave 40c-45c everyday..Family run and kept clean by an army of cleaners, we were on an upper floor in a family room for four people/four seperate beds and a very basic kitchenette with a toilet and shower in an adjoining room , all very basic but adequate for sleeping in, a balcony overlooked the pool.
Air con was 6 euros per night and was needed during July/August. safety deposit boxes are also available....theres also no language barrier as everyone speaks fluent English.
Free WIFI, on site mini market and Dannys bar is nice and handy for a night cap just before hitting your pillow.
Nothing is too much trouble for Yannis and his fiancee...Ioana. a really friendly genuine couple..!!
There is nothing negative to report about this place....except maybe for the mentality of some holiday makers regarding sunbeds,which can be annoying and highly amusing at the same time..
On our first week we had no trouble getting a sunbed but on the second week two or three "Nesbit" families arrived and thought the sunbeds were put there just for them, they were up at 3am everyday just to reserve their beds, resulting in 90% of the beds reserved by 7am..
During July and August there is obviously going to be more kids,if you are not kid friendly you should either go somewhere else or book your holiday outside of the six week school holidays..
Yannis and ioana work really hard in the pool snack bar and the food is spot on, for the perfectionist looking for the most English of breakfasts...well you wont get better than here...
We came away feeling like we had known everyone for years...we enjoyed it 100%,
The friendliest place weve ever stayed at, we will be going back very soon....
