Reasonably sized room with patio area. Good facilities with fantastic views down towards the sea. Good continental buffet breakfast. Great swimming pool with built in Jacuzzi. Friendly and helpful staff. Well maintained building and grounds. Within 5 minutes walking distance of the town and bus/taxi rank.

Hotel Aktea is just a few minutes stroll from the harbour and from the delightful old town of Lipari. Our room was very comfortable and overlooked the pool. Everything was very clean and the grounds were well tended and very attractive. Lipari is an attractive island with plenty to see and do. Wandering up to the Archaeological Museum was a... More

The pool is superb, large, clean and with plenty of room poolside to rest and relax when not sightseeing. The gardens are lovely too. We had planned to eat out frequently but having had a very good, and reasonably priced, meal at the hotel... More

We traveled in wonderful Sicily for 15 days and stayed in many charming hotels but it was very nice to stretch out a bit and stay at a resort. The pool is beautiful with a lot of umbrellas available in June. The hotel is a quick walk to the main port and town and to a small grocery store and... More

I am not a great fan of Lipari, the small island on which the Aktea Resort is situated. Certain areas are dirty and unkempt where nothing evidently gets fixed or repaired, and rubbish/litter/scrap cars/scrap scooters etc abound in the streets. It really needs cleaning up. It seems that either the locals or the local authority have no civic pride whatsoever.... More

We were 2 couples who stayed at the Aktea for just one night as our program dictated. Would love to come for a longer spell. Have never seen such cleanliness in any hotel. Very friendly staff and enjoyed only the lovely breakfast. Great product. Must return !
