Stayed at the Patmos Aktis for 6 nights last August with my girlfriend after an extremely long trip from the US. We stayed in a “Pool Suite” which was very spacious and quiet. The rooms were very modern and comfortable with a nice TV, beautiful bathroom, and chilly pool that was great for very hot days. We encountered a few issues with service during our stay, such as long waits at room service and a very long wait for our passports to be returned to us upon checking in, but nothing significant enough to effect our stay. It is also worth knowing that WiFi at the hotel is very patchy and unreliable, due to the remoteness of the island, however, it is clear that the hotel is doing everything they can to work this out. Location near Grikos village is excellent and central. I also heard excellent things about the beach from other guests but we never used it as we had our own pool. The hotel breakfast was also excellent and I believe it is included in all stays. The Patmos Aktis is a great (albeit expensive) option for a comfortable stay in Patmos and I would not hesitate to return.

Patmos has few hotels. We have a summer house there and and we know most of them. We decided this year not to stay in our house but to a hotel for a few days so that we have a perfect rest.
Patmos Aktis was a dream. Right on the waterfront, we would go swimming before breakfast and enjoy afterwards the delicious buffet breakfast looking to the crystal blue waters of Grikou Bay.
In the evening we loved having a cocktail at the terrace, hear live music and singing.and watch the lights of the boats glittering into the water.
The personnel was friendly,, always ready to help. It was a most restful and pleasant week and we hope to repeat it this year again.

Room Tip: Rooms looking at the pool are quieter.

We stayed at the Patmos Aktis in September. It’s a beautiful tranquil place and easy on the eyes with a décor in white and shades of grey which fits beautifully into the location on the shore of Grikos bay. A beautiful view of the bay can be seen from the hotel's restaurant whilst dining.



Our suite was spacious (split level with two bathrooms) and had its own patio and swimming pool. The staff servicing it were unobtrusive (it's nice not to be disturbed) but very efficient and someone knocked on the door every afternoon to make sure everything was ok for us.



The staff generally are friendly relaxed, helpful, and well informed. Definitely 5 star.



We liked the Apocalypsis restaurant it is innovative and imaginative. On the evening of our arrival we had a special five course ‘Full Moon’ tasting menu which included fine wines, for about 30 euros. Also the hotel's taverna serves more traditional meals at very moderate prices. At breakfast the buffet had a huge range of fresh food (including an egg theatre and freshly brewed coffee and tea as required).



A bus which will take you all over the island stops right outside the hotel. It’s a good way to get around and gives wonderful views for a flat fare of 1.5 euros.

Will definitely go again.

We also stayed at the Kos Aktis while coming and going. It has a very different lively vibe but is another really good hotel.

Well a lot of it is all about location and this modern and trendy hotel certainly has that. Set on the northern edge of beautiful Grikos bay is the Aktis Hotel. With its white walls and ceilings throughout and it's gravely beach running into the crystal clear waters of the southern Aegean Sea overlooking the pristine bay with a back drop of rugged hills it has a very calm and tranquil feel.

The rooms are of good standard but to appreciate the place you really need to be on the front otherwise you will have a limited view of a hill. You may get a pool at the back of your room but this is of little use as It wasn't heated.

The hotel is trying to be very trendy with staff swishing around in white linen trousers and pastel shirts not all very effectively either. The breakfast attains a pass mark. It has some odd offerings like a large white plate with 8 pieces of cucumber perfectly placed. The breakfast staff seem more interested in making sure the cucumbers are in the correct position than concerning themselves with clearing plates and getting tea or coffee that is hot. Most breakfasts we had the dirty plates were there until the end.

A very strange business in the hotel is that the small but adequate gym does not open until 10am. From my experience the busiest time in a gym is first thing before breakfast. I don't know what that is all about.

The restaurant in the evening is very good but not somewhere you would want to eat every night. It's a little too much but great for those of you who like squid ink on everything. The gentleman running this restaurant understands his trade and is most charming.

Next door are couple of good tavernas the best however is out of the front of the hotel turn right along the beach and keep going for 5 minutes until you get to the Ktima Petra restaurant. Greek food as good as it gets.

The bar in the hotel is very stark and lacking any atmosphere. Too much lighting and too minimal and the seating uncomfortable. The bottles in the chillers are all haphazard and the bar itself just covered in stuff ! The bar is also the hang out for the staff when not on shift. Someone needs to be employed who knows how to run a bar. There is a cocktail list with staff with little experience of cocktails albeit the staff were all very pleasant. A draught beer tap with no beer. The food in there which is also served on the terrace is good though.

When we first walked into the bar a shaven headed man in a track suit was sitting in the prime seat with a drink talking to the girl working at the bar. He looked up at us and never spoke and continued his conversation. We did not sit at the bar as there didn't seem much room. We were the only other people in the bar. We saw this man in his track suit and trainers carrying his latte around and coming in for breakfast quite often. Then 2 days in a row we saw him leave with 2 young female staff members in a speed boat. This attracted my curiosity as we enquired who he might be. We were most surprised to find that he was the manager. This man had walked past us on numerous occasions and hasn't the manners to say good morning let alone anything else. I never saw him speak to any guests for that matter.

Music is played (Greek radio at times I might add) all day from 8am in the morning ! It's piped all over the place and the speakers from the terrace point straight up to our room. It's a great way to destroy the tranquil mornings. I think the staff liked it on.

Anyway overall a good stay a very pleasant hotel.

We are a young family with 3 kids and are usually staying 4-5 times per year in 4* and 5* hotels across Europe, with a special focus on Greece. This is the best hotel we have ever stayed in Greece so far. A location for dreams rather than for vacation... but it feels like a dream, a beachfront to draw a picture of, outstanding facilities, small and luxurious, excellent service mentality of the people who are always present but with a modest distance. Breakfast arrangements and restaurants among the best in Greece. Just go over there and be happy and get happier every day you stay...Dream scenery within what is one of he nicest places in the world: The island of Patmos
