Sani Club

Rating: 
Sani Beach Resort has five hotels built in 1000 acres of coastal woodland and sandy beaches, on the Kassandra peninsular on mainland Greece. At the heart of the resort is Sani Marina, lined with bars and restaurants and filled with beautiful yachts providing families with a safe, relaxing holiday environment where nothing is too far away.   
 
The hotels operate a Dine Around programme, where you can take some of your half/full-board meal allowance in selected restaurants in the marina, which is a fun place to wander around in the evening. The resort has an outdoor theatre space, a children’s beach (from north to south: Sani Beach, Sani Asterias, Porto Sani,  Sani Dunes, and Sani Club), and all individually designed, and although all are family friendly, they each have a slightly different focus, so you can find one which exactly suits you.
