“Amazing..would definitely go back!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2011

We recently stayed at Yakinthos Apartments for a week at the end of june. There was a group of 18 of us and the family that run the hotel were so nice to us and did everything they could to make sure we had an amazing week. Even though there was a lot of us away together and we were quite loud they didn't mind. We had 3 four person rooms and 3 two people studios. The rooms were very nice and were a good size and were cleaned properly every day. The pool was also really nice any most days we ate at the bar right next to the pool. The food they served was also really good and cheap and even though the hotel was just run by a family and there beings lots of us the food always came fairly quickly. It was about a 5 minute drive to the strip from the apartments but there is a taxi rank right next to the hotel so it was very easy to get there and would always cost about 6 euros. I would definitely come back to these apartments and stay again, we all miss the family already!

We stayed here for a week and could not fault it at all! The family that run the apartments are so friendly and make you feel very welcome, it was like a home away from home. Our apartment slept all four of us comfortably and it was spotless! The location is perfect... far away enough to not be disrupted by the noise of the strip but close enough to walk or get a taxi for a set price of 6 euros. There is a taxi rank just outside the apartments and a good supermarket. Overall, we would definately recommend the apartments and we will be going back! :-)

This hotel is run by husband and wife, Peter and Coola, and their lovely daughters, Evie and Letta, and they address everyone by their christian names from the moment you arrive making you feel like one of the family.

We occupied twin room 25, first floor next to the bar area, this block is the newest. The rooms are large and spotlessly clean. All rooms overlook the pool area and have balconies. The shower room is very small but adequate and the kitchen area has a fridge, one electric hob and a kettle, however, most people eat out.

Denise cooks a very mean full english breakfast consisting of 2 eggs, bacon, sausage, beans and mushrooms, together with orange juice, tea/coffee, and two slices of toast with butter and jam/marmalade for 4 euros. She also makes the lunch if you want to stay round the pool area during the day, the greek salad if very good for 5 euros and large.

Angelo is the barman from 5.00 pm and is a riot. Watch out for the "medicine" shots!!! He also prepares and serves food in the evenings if you want to eat in house.

The swimming pool is a good size and again spotless, with mesh sun beds. The cleaning ladies clean the whole area every day before they hit the rooms.

There are several good restaurants in the immediate area, Paradise being one of them; turn left out of the hotel and its a couple of hundred yards down on the right. It is a good 20 minutes walk into the main strip of Laganas which is near enough, and far away enough, depending on whether you like the noise and hustle and bustle or not.

The only minor point for me, being a light sleeper, was the noise the youngsters made coming back in at 3/4/5 in the morning after leaving the clubs without considering that others were asleep. If you want a quite room avoid the rooms by the end staircases as the clip clop of the high heels on the tiled areas certainly resound very well. This only happended a couple of times and did not detract from the holiday. We are in our 60's (but not boring old farts) and enjoyed chatting with the youngsters.

We usually go fully inclusive 4/5*, but in this instance very much enjoyed the whole feel of the hotel and our holiday.

Don't be put off by any negative reports of illness etc, it would not be the result of food eaten at this hotel.

just returned from yakinthos apts on 23rd sept. I had a large,modern, 3 bedded studio . All doors and windows double glazed which kept the dog and road noise down.The room and larger than usual bathroom were spotless. It is quite a long way to the beach and the paths are not the best. The pool was great with walk in steps which enabled me to actually use. Book exchange at reception. Koula and her family are lovely people. Towels not very good but bed linen was fresh and clean. I think the maids wash the towels but I saw the laundry van taking the sheets. All on the flat so no problem for people with walking difficulties. A good choice for walkers as the surrounding areas are very peacefull. The nighlife down the strip is manic so the Yakinthos is well placed to have the best of both worlds.Bus stop across the road,every hour on the timetable but wear a hat ,you are in Greece. After looking around other properties there I think Yakinthos outshines in everything. I ate every night at the restaurant Plalataki across the road to the right.Excellent home cooked english and greek food . A lovely atmosphere and family. If returning to Laganas I would go back to Yakinthos.

My husband & I stayed here for 2 weeks in Aug with 2 friends, We have stopped here previously 3 years ago and decided to return as the place is so clean with friendly staff.

The pool was spotless and we saw Peter checking the chemicals most days to ensure the pool was clean. Mamma Khula runs a tight ship and although Olympic recommend the apartments are cleaned only 3 times per week, Khula insists the rooms are cleaned every day. With the bathroom and kitchen bins changed and the rooms mopped out. So where these dirty rooms are I have no idea??
We stopped in a studio apartment this time where last time we had a 1 bedroom apartment. We were in room 1 which was overlooking the pool and was pleny big enough for us 2. We decided to pay for the air conditioning which was a godsend with the August heat especially at night!
The hotel holds a BBQ every Tues which we attended twice as it was so much fun. The price is only 10 euros and there is plenty of food!! I am vegetarian and Khula made me a fresh veggi Pizza which was excellent I also ate the salads and potatos from the BBQ. My husband ate from the BBQ and enjoyed all the food. The only bad comment is that the free wine is awful and tastes of sherry?? Although some other people found it nice! Not one person was ill during our 2 week stay other than from too much alcohol consumption from Lagans town !

We ate from the pool bar most days for breakfast or lunch and the prices are very cheap with a good variation and always freshly made.

Lagans strip is approx a mile from the apartments and 6 euros in a taxi or 20 min walk. This is fab during the day as it is so quiet around the pool with the sun directly on the pool all day. Other hotels nearer into town especially on the right only have sun for half a day!!

Overall we found the Apartments excellent and loved the family atmosphere of the place. Peter, Khula, Evi,Letta and of course Andreous the Barman!! They are all friendly and will make you welcome.

me and 3 friends stayed here for one week and we all got ill a couple of days into the hol, we had severe stomach cramps, sickness and diaherrea and it totally ruined our holiday as we wanted to get out there and have a good time but cudnt as we were too ill. i know there are some good reviews on here but nearly everyone we spoke to staying here was also very ill too. i looked at holiday watchdog reviews and some of them said that alot of people were ill when they stayed here too, i noticed the pool was never cleaned and there were all bits of dead skin in it, so it cud of been the pool or the food, but please dont risk staying here
