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.
