“What a magical vacation!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

I have been visiting Mykonos for the past 25 years and this was by far the most amazing venue that I've stayed at! The family's hospitality, the establishment itself, so clean and homy, with a fantastic view, beautiful rooms and beautiful energy! I am grateful we chose to stay here.

New building, new studios fully equipped with just what it takes to confortably spend an holiday. We stayed in a 60 square meters apartment, with double bedroom and living room with kitchen. It was perfectly clean on arrival and has been properly cleaned on a daily base. In front of us a large and private terrace facing Panormos bay. We either had dinner at home (the terrace has a table and 4 chairs and the kitchen allows to prepare a nice meal) or went to Mykonos town. The residence is ideally located near Panormos and Agios Sostis beaches. But if you want to move to other areas of the island, no problem: with a scooter it takes less than 15 minutes to get to town, and the road is not bad at all. So don't believe those telling you that Yakinthos is in the middle of nowhere! Breakfast is brought directly to you and it will be you deciding the timing, up until 11.
The residence is managed directly by owners, nice people ready to offer their help. Christos, in particular, has to be mentioned because of his key role in assisting customers, from booking phase to check out, always with a smile.

Yakinthos Residence is in a stunning quiet location overlooking the sea on the beautiful sun kissed island of Mykonos encapsulated by glorious sandy beaches. A family run business, Christos, Eva and Elpida, whom have the personal touch, leave you with a feeling like you are ‘at home’. They are friendly, courteous and nothing is spared in ensuring that you have a fabulous holiday including advice with choosing your days destination. We hired a Quad Bike for sightseeing and visiting the wonderful beaches. Accommodation is spotless, spacious, simple, beautiful to the eye and tastefully decorated, with a true greek feeling. The kitchen has everything that you would require for self catering. Breakfast is plentiful, served on the sun terrace and provides enough nutrition until the evening if required. The pool is located outside the apartments, so a ‘stone throw away’, with wonderful sun loungers and relaxing music which adds to the ambience of the accommodation. Local shops can be found 5/10 minutes ride for every convenience. Mykonos town is located approx. 15 minutes away with a choice of magnificent restaurants, assortment of beautiful shops and party life can be found until the early hours of the morning.
A truly wonderful holiday, relaxing…and very chilled! I would recommend these apartments to anyone as it is an ideal venue, with choices of quietness but with the buzz and effervescence of night life 15 minutes away.
A big thank especially to Christos.

A superb peaceful setting with stunning views and a warm welcome.

We stayed here as my son and daughter in law got married on the beautiful Panormos beach which is overlooked by Yakinthos residences. The apartments were taken up entirely by wedding guests of all ages from 2 to 82 .

The accommodation and atmosphere at Yakinthos was perfect for the 10 days we were there. With people coming and going at various times it was handy that the drive to the airport and the docks was only about 15 mins. Even though it was easy and not far to get to Mykynos we were in the quietest part of the island away from it all. The large and lovely pool was cleaned every day. It had views across the bay as did all the balconies and terraces of the apartments. The latter were each private and not directly overlooked by others. Around the pool was plenty of shade, pretty flowers and bushes and comfortable cushions, sunbeds etc with lots of space for children to play. However, children do need supervision in the pool as there is no shallow end .

The apartments were large, spacious, spotless and well equipped with very tasteful decor. The maid service was excellent. The owners were very friendly and unobtrusive, ready to help but not at all interfering.We had a brunch party around the pool the day after the wedding which was a very relaxing and chilled out event for people of all ages.

Panormos beach was the best beach on the island for us. It's long and sandy backed by sand-dunes - great for strolling along. Swimming is easy in the bay though at the far right end it can be more dramatic with big waves . There is lovely beach bar and restaurant with excellent food where my son and daughter in law had their wedding reception. Their cushions, umbrellas and sunbeds only took up a relatively small part of the whole beach . On the left is a lovely shady rocky and sandy end to the beach with rock pools and clear sea for snorkelling. There are a few restaurants in nearby Panormos village.

I would recommend the Yakinthos residences to people looking for a quiet relaxing stay in beautiful surroundings on their own or with friends and family.

I visited Myconos after my wedding (2 years ago) and I could not imagine of staying anywhere else than "Yakinthos" at Panormos beach.

I really read some reviews that made me wonder... do people stayed there and been treated in such a bad way...I do not believe it, the owners are so careful and treat us with so much hospitality. I find it realy remarkable that one of the owners goes behind the cleaning lady to check if everything is cleaned correctly and in the right order.

Now I have 2 children my daughter is 3 and my son 1, we were realy careful of not making any noise and that was a realy good test and lesson to them of how much we should respect others that have their vacations and need to rest, we met all the people staying there the week we were there, we made friends and had such a great time....

I would definetly recomend this excellent spot for your vacation!!!

I have been to Mykonos 4 times for various reasons (holidays, weddings etc) and stayed at Yakinthos Residence on 3 occasions. Normally I am not a big fan of Mykonos island, as I like quieter holiday spots. However, since I discovered this lovely spot, it became a favourite.
Having a young child who sleeps early at night, we always try to book apartments with a small kitchen facility (including fridge etc) and a nice veranda with a view, so after dinner we can put our son to bed and then relax in the veranda with a glass of wine. I also like my apartment cleaned as often as possible and my bedsheets changed frequently. I will not bother mentioning air-conditioning etc as you can find that in almost any holiday room in the country. So, given that, Yakinthos fulfills all of them.
The apartments are super clean and the sheets changed frequently. So after a day at the beach the room is clean and tidy and the bed made. If you happen to go out for dinner after an afternoon nap, you'll find the bed made again (!!!). My son would go to bed after dinner and my husband and I would enjoy a glass of wine by the pool.
This is a great place for couples and families who would like to go on holiday to Mykonos but do not like the fuss and the noise of Mykonos town.
Likewise, Panormos beach is ideal, with nice restaurants and bars but without the constant noise of the other overcrowded beaches.
Overall it was a good experience and this is the place I would definitely stay if I ever visit the island again

I stayed at Yahinthos residence last summer with my family. The room was spacious and clean and the surroundings (pool etc) magnificent. The nearby beach is lovely and is at wlking distance. However, the residence is in the middle of nowhere and there is nothing much to do apart from sitting in your room or by the pool, which is something that we did not expect given the amount of money we had to pay for the room.
The place is nice for families as it is quiet, however we were feeling a constant pressure by the owners who live in the complex that our children remain quiet and "well behaved". We always thought of our children as quiet and pretty well disciplined but during our holiday we felt that we were constantly shushing them and asking them not to run or raise their voice, even during daytime so as not to upset the lady owner who was always there keeping an eye on us. We are not noisy people and a quiet, family holiday was what we were looking for, however this place does not help you relax and enjoy it.
In summary, the place is nice and clean with a nice view and a fantastic pool, although quite far from everything and a bit pricey, even for Mykonos. The service is OK but the main problem is the owners who live on site and behave as if the whole complex is their home and don't seem to understand the true meaning of needing privacy and relaxation. If we wanted to go on holiday with our mothers we would certainly have done so...
