Yakinthos Hotel

The family-run Yakinthos Hotel can be found just over the road from the beach. You won’t even have to travel that far to dip your toes in the water, though, because the property comes with a fantastic pool. It keeps things simple with sunloungers and a well-stocked bar, while manicured trees and shrubs frame the tranquil scene. Kids have no need to fret, because there’s a separate option that’s just for them.

For food, a buffet breakfast is served up every morning. If you’re looking for meals throughout the day, then there’s a traditional taverna just outside the front door.

In the evening, the lobby bar and the pool bar both serve drinks until late.

Overview of Nea Kydonia

Nea Kydonia is tucked away on the beautiful north-west coast of Crete. If you’re looking for a holiday to Crete where you can rest and relax by the sea, then Nea Kydonia is the place to be. Heavy on sunshine and relaxation, a stay at the Yakinthos Hotel will leave you feeling rested and recharged.

During the day, you’ll find plenty of beach spots where you can relax and soak up the sun. If the heat gets a bit much, quiet tavernas line the seafront. Away from the coast, there are plenty of walking trails that wind through the unspoilt countryside.

In the evening, the local restaurants and tavernas are the stars of the show. Fresh seafood is always on the menu, as is family-friendly entertainment.

Things to do in Nea Kydonia

A stay at the Yakinthos Hotel puts you right in the heart of Nea Kydonia. As you leave the hotel, you’ll be immediately greeted by bars and restaurants. If you turn the other way, you’re right on the beach. You’ll also reach the walking trails in only a couple of minutes. Head up into the hills to make the most of the gorgeous views.

Just down the road from the hotel, you can catch the bus to Chania. The trip only takes 20 minutes and you can buy tickets straight from reception. A livelier resort than Nea Kydonia, Chania comes with ancient ruins, plenty of beaches and a Venetian harbour.

Nea Kydonia is a shining example of an easy-going seaside resort. After a holiday spent drifting between the shores and the quiet taverns, you’ll feel super-relaxed!
