We stayed at this hotel 10-17th June 2012 and had a fantastic holiday. Letta, Evi and the family are so lovely and made us feel really welcome. The rooms and pool area's are very clean. You cant go wrong with this hotel. Its on the edge of the strip its a nice walk down to the beach or you can get a taxi for 5euros. The bbq night is well worth the 10euros. Elvis is a great bar man i recomend the "Elvis Specials". I would recomend this hotel to everyone. Thank you Letta and Evi again for an amazing holiday! xx :)

Me and 3 of my mates stayed in this hotel a few weeks ago and these reviews make the hotel look good but it is actually not. The 'famous' elvis guy is an arrogant little man who sounds like a girl. He never said anything to us apart from when he wanted to have a go at us drinking beer from the supermarket. The 'best BBQ on the island' is absolutely pathetic unless u like eating a load of raw fat! The hotel is very stingy and gave us 1 toilet roll to last 4 people for a week and refused to give us any more. The air conditioning you have to pay extra for something like 15 euros per day which is a joke. The cleaners clean up when they can be bothered. The cafe takes HOURS to give you a burger and that is no exaggeration it is terrible and then they expect a tip!! Also, do NOT get a full english breakfast here the sausage is basically raw u get 3 mushrooms and some beans, stay clear. The strip feels miles away from the hotel and u simply can not walk there in the day. If you are thinking about staying here DONT, STAY WELL AWAY.

Room Tip: Do not book here.

Yakinthos Apartments are a pleasant, clean and affordable holiday apartments located outside of Laganans.

Pros
-family run, helpful and friendly staff
-good daily room clean service
-newly refurbished exterior
-good security, night watchman on duty throughout night
-supermarket, taxi rank and scooter/quad bike hire shop located next door

Cons
-location is poor, you will need your own transport to get around and to visit local towns such as Tsilivi, Kalamaki, Zakynthos town or Laganas strip/beach or be prepared to use taxis.
-you have to pay cash upfront for extras such as air con and room safes. 42 euros per week for air-con and 10 euros per week for room safe key.
-kitchen equipment and bath towels are old and have seen better days
-bath towels are not changed daily, only receive fresh towels on 3rd or 4th day during week stay which is not ideal in summer when it's above 30 degrees and have to shower twice a day

Room Tip: room 4 is nice

We have just had a week here and although the rooms are basic, they are clean. They are cleaned each day.

Nice small pool.

Bar and food is very good.

The family who own this place make you feel very welcome and made our holiday that much better.

Room Tip: Top floor then you dont hear all the high heels clipping around.

Just got back from a week in the Yakinthos hotel.... I read all the reviews about this place before i went as it was going to be my 1st visit to Greece .... I`m so glad i took no notice ....What lovely welcoming people Evi and Letta were , we were an hour late due to a delay in Birmingham but nothing was too much for them. The room was lovely and clean and more than enough space for us but not enough pans and utensils as was sold as self catering but struggled with what was provided , the pool area was cleaned every morning we even saw the 2 ladies cleaning all the marble banisters around the building and washing stairs down .... they even did our washing up for us so we left them a very nice tip .... I would recommend this to all but on the downside some customers can be annoying i`ll say with there arrivals home in the early hours ...
The highlight of our week was the BBQ night it was fab they had the bar on fire there was greek dancing lessons and karaoke the food was plentiful and lovely well worth the 10 euros with wine and fishbowls .
My only moan i will put cos its not really a complaint it is personal preference the seating in the rooms is not very comfy and as i suffer a bad back has not done me much good ... loved the walk into Laganas but be warned it is a good mile and a half with some quite unstable walking areas lovely in the daylight but would not have liked to have done it in the dark.
Buses are cheap but very irregular you cant rely on them.
My reccomendations whilst visiting here has got to be the island tour by bus well worth the money and also turtle spotting we saw 5 when we did this ...

All in all a very good week and will be returning in the near future Thank you all for making it a great holiday
