“Below Average Holiday”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2012

We have just returned from the Yakinthos Hotel, Crete, We booked with Thompson Small & Friendly - this should be amended to Small & Unhelpful. We do not want much from our holiday, just to relax round the pool with a good book, find somwhere nice to eat and get out and about on the local transport (bus). The pool bar was never staffed - we had to resort to buying cans of coke/water or visit the accomodation next door (piatos - very friendly service from the owners). Staff were not helpful. Our rep had told us to buy bus tickets from the hotel, when we tried to we were told no, when we questioned this and repeated what our rep had said the answer was changed to yes - we were made to feel that we shouldn't have asked. Also not all busses stop at the stop outside hotel, be warned. We soon got used to the answer of NO, even when we asked about changing some money - even though this service was and still is quoted in broucher.
On the plus side the beach is lovely and i would recommend piatos and Golden Bay (both have accomodation, pools and pool bar/taverna.

Room Tip: Hotel is on a very busy main road. Ask for a room at the back

We choose the word "excellent" for everthing we experienced in the hotel yakinthos at chania crete. The breakfast was very good as well as the the rooms (clean and quiet). The beach is about 50 meters from the hotel. The staff was very kind and friendly and we had everything we needed as soon as we asked for it! We strongly recommend it. If anyone choose chania crete he must stay at yakinthos hotel. Thank you. We will back

Room Tip: "choose the rooms with view to the pool"

We really enjoyed our stay in the Yakinthos hotel because we got the tranquility what we needed so much and yet the comfort of a clean hotel. It's only a short walk from the beautiful beach which was not crowded with tourists. You can find other beaches within walking distance. Each beach has his own character so you can choose what you like. Each morning we could taste from a nice breakfast with fresh orange juice. It only takes a 10 minutes trip with the bus to Chania town. The bus stop is near by. The staff at the Yakinthos hotel is very friendly and is doing their best to answer to all your needs without loosing their tyîcal greek style. We will certainly go back!
