"The whole hotel was great due too some fantastic staff from the cleaners to the chef .The gardens were smart and well kept .The cleaners swept and mopped around the pool every day. The apartments were basic but comfortable and cleaned every day . The snacks prepared by the chef were wholesome and very tasty. We had a fantastic holiday in the resort of Alykanas . There are some really good restaurant with very good food from Greek food to English food . Also try a horse and cart ride to the next resort only 5/6 minutes away .This is our second visit to Alykanas found there was plenty to do island tours boat trips or just kick back and relax . Already booked for next year same time same place . We would really recommend Ioannis & Danny's hotel. The supermarket on the corner run by Yannis mam and dad was handy not to far to carry the odd and ends you might need . We found Yannis and Joanne really friendly and helpful nothing was too much trouble so roll on next year"

"We have just returned from a lovely holiday, were we were made to feel very welcome by all who run Danny's. The room we stayed in was very clean had everything you would need for a self catering holiday. We ate through out the day at the pool bar which offers a great selection of food at good prices. Danny's also offers a good night with karaoke, quiz nights and the Greek night is not to be missed. The resort of Alkanas is quite with just a few bars,restaurants and only a couple of gift shops, but its only a short Horse and Carriage ride to the next town of Alkes were its a bit more lively with lots more bars, restaurants and shops to choose from. The beach is a short walk away from Danny's were you can hire 2 sun loungers for only 7 euros a day which is worth every penny as the beach is lovely, it offers Water activities at good prices. There is a couple of bars were you can go to eat or drink and they also take order from the beach and bring it down for you. If you are looking for a quite relaxing holiday away from all the noise then this is the place for you. We are already looking to book our next holiday at Danny's for next year. "

"Just returned from my second stay here. Would not usually go to the same place twice but just had to. This family run establishment is clean, friendly and fun. There are two pools, one is next to the snack bar which does great, reasonably price meals and snacks and serves lovely ice cold beer, music a little overpowering though. The other pool is much quieter and good for some peaceful reading and sun worshipping. The rooms are clean and modern with basic cooking facilities and each with a balcony for breakfast and cards in the evening.The main bar was fun in the evening with Pool tournament, Karaoke, quiz and a very good value Greek night and very friendly staff. The village was lovely and still very unspoilt by rowdy bars with so many lovely places to eat and drink that we were spoilt for choice, it is only a short walk to Alykes, the next resort where the bars are a bit more lively. There is a beautiful beach with very safe shallow water suitable for young children. Would have given a 10 but for the Grumpy woman who runs the shop on the complex, the only time she was civil was when she was trying to sell us tickets for her Greek night!"

Overall, fairly good- but the cleaning staff are rather dodgy
"The apartments in general were amazing. The staff were very friendly (other than one, who I will mention in due time), and hard working. I was there for a week and Yannis and his wife never took a day off. They were always in pleasant moods and were very friendly and accommodating. The pool area was lovely. Very relaxing, quiet, with a reasonably priced bar right next to it. And the Greek Night was brilliant! The rooms were big enough- not enormous, but I wasn't expecting enormous (nor did they say they'd be enormous). The only main downfall this place has is the cleaning staff who are, for lack of a better word, useless. I went to the beach one night and came back to go to bed. There was still sand in my bed five days later. And we received one set of fresh towels the entire week we were there, and two toilet rolls (for four people). Additionally, some of our stuff went missing. I found one of my expensive tshirts oddly stuffed down the side of the corner sofa. Definitely *not* where I left it, and in too tight a space to have fallen down there accidentally. One of my other friends lost an expensive jumper, that had only ever been in that room. Unfortunately, we never found that. Since we didn't receive fresh bedding or towels, it confuses me as to what the cleaning staff were doing in our room every day. Upon asking the lady who runs the shop and the maid service about the missing items, she got very shirty with us (even though we weren't originally accusing her service). So unfortunately, that spoilt it a bit. Ioannis and Danny's would be a definite 10/10 for me, if the cleaning staff were replaced with a respectable, honest, hardworking force."

lovely relaxing clean hotel
"Having just returned from 7 days in Alykanas and a stay at Danny's hotel I would have to say that I would definately return, all staff including Danny, Joanna and Aphrodite were helpful and welcoming nothing was too much trouble and any request (the loan of a bottle opener for the week) was met with a friendly attitude. the rooms were immaculate on arrival, well equipped for our self catering holiday. rooms/bin and sheets changed regularly, pool area spotless including a jacuzzi. snack pool bar cheap and food excellent. the bar on an evening was entertaining and friendly. the area had plenty of bars and restuarants to keep a group of 5 mid twenty to thirty somethings happy without being to 'clubby' due to the early season the area was quite quiet but we were happy to spend time in Danny's bar each evening with the staff and other residents.

Superb & Fantastic
"Just returned from a 7 night stay at Danny's and have to say it was by far our best holiday yet. The Staff were very welcoming, the room was clean and tidy and had everything we needed. Yannis, Jo, Linda, Stellios and Aphrodite, nothing was to much trouble for them and they made our holiday what it was. The pool snack bar had something for everyone and the evening entertainment in Danny's bar was superb. Big thank you to everyone at Danny's and we can wait to return soon."

"Just got back after a superb holiday - Whilst not using all the facilities at Danny's - we liked to go to beach and see a bit of the island - I would recommend these studios to all my friends and family. Up to date rooms - modern kitchen, bed and bathroom. We had change of sheets at least every 4 days and bin in toilet changed daily. Only disappointment was a taxi - ordered through Danny's (goes by the name of Jimmy) - left us standing at St Nicholas Port which is quite remote for nearly two hours in the evening - luckily had enough money on mobile to ring the only taxi firm on the island who were very helpful and retrieved two very concerned ladies. Saying that Proprietor of Danny's was very concerned that we had been let down which was not his fault at all - wonderful holiday - wonderful area - food above average as tried all the different restaurants - and management and staff at Danny's were as good as it gets "

great for a chilled out holiday
"Dannys is a friendly family run complex.They all make you very welcome and cannot do enough for you. Danny's bar is very friendly and welcoming for the start of your night, end of your night or the entire night, having some entertainment certain nights. The rooms are spacious and clean, also cleaned regular thoughout your stay. We went away for 2 weeks in july 2010,and would love to return to Danny's and would recommend this to our family and friends. "

Friendly staff, nice hotel, good value
"I've been to Danny's last week for my summer holidays. The hotel is really nice and clean. Green spot, friendly people. The rooms are average size, small bathroom with shower in one corner, balcony with nice view over the mountains. They clean the room every day (making up beds, taking the garbage out...), change towels twice a week.Every room has it's own kitchenette, with everything you need. Breakfast contains: butter, jam, coffee or tea, juice, tomatoes, cucumber, bacon, eggs, cheese and a small sandwich (bread, ham, cheese). I didn't like the breakfast to-go they served when you go on trips: they give you only that small sandwich. The pool, even if kind of small, is clean and welcoming. At the bar there are several guys answering your request, depending on the language you speak. We were served by Ioana, who did her best to make us feel great, but the others helped too in other occasions. The pool bar has good prices, and you can eat lost of fast food for a very small price. Everybody is very kind and helpful. We had a small accident at the beach one of the days and they called the doctor for us, assisted us while he was there and even assured themselves we are not going to pay anything because we had a medical insurance. I would go back if I would visit the island again one day and would recommend this to anyone."

Friendly and clean apartments
"We stopped at Danny's apartments for 1 week from 27th June and had a smashing time. The apartment was large and clean and overlooked the pool. The pool was very clean and i was in it a lot to cool down as the weather was very hot. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. Stelios at the bar was brilliant and his cocktails and shots were great. When you go past the bar Stelios will beep his horn, give him a wave or go in for a drink. The food at the pool bar was good and a very good price. I know there are a few bad reviews on here, but i don't know why, this was one of the best holidays we have had and we will be going back."
