Our favourite rooms
The Mediterranean Two-Bedroom Suite is a star for families: parents can close the door on the kids in the living room and stay up as long as they like in the bedroom, and there’s an enormous amount of space to spread out toys. There’s a terrace for alfresco dining (or just running around) with sea views, too.
Flanked by loungers and palm trees, the large swimming pool welcomes mini guests… and the ever-attentive staff are on hand to brings drinks to lounging parents, too.
The indoor pool at Danai Spa is a child-free escape when the outdoor pool’s a bit too splashy. You’ll also find a sauna and steam room, and a full menu of spa and beauty delights in the five treatment rooms (many also available in your own hotel room, too). (Don’t miss the Cleopatra room with its golden bath tub. It’s quite something.)
There’s a noticeably high staff-to-guests ratio, so you’ll always be able to find someone to fetch whatever you need.
Book babysitting and spa treatments at least a day in advance.
Dogs are welcome at no charge – beds, bowls and food are supplied. Beach access for dogs is reserved for those whose masters are staying in a Beach Cabana. (All restaurants are dog free.)
