“So much better than we expected - we will be back!”
Reviewed 2 November 2013

My boyfriend and I are just coming to the end of a week at the Akti beach. What can I say, it's been exactly what we wanted, and more.

Firstly, the accommodation, although fairly basic, is very spacious and our room has a lovely balcony overlooking the tennis courts. Every day we have returned to find it spotless and everything tidied up nicely. You should be made aware that a double bed may comprise two singles, with a double mattress on top. Don't let this put you off as this didn't cause us any issues at all. Any issues with the room were swiftly dealt with by the hotel staff.

Next, the food. We went all inclusive, and to be honest we were not expecting a great deal for the price. Again the Akti has outdone our expectations - the food is all fresh, delicious and there is plenty of options, even for myself as a vegetarian. However, as a vegetarian I occasionally found it difficult to distinguish what was veggie and what wasn't. The food is labelled but not for veggies.

Location-wise, the hotel is a 5 minute drive from the tourist area of Paphos. There is some major building work going on next door, however the noise is minimal and we do not think that it affected our holiday one bit. As the hotel is just outside Paphos, I would definitely recommend hiring a car from the airport, this makes it easier to explore Cyprus and gives you plenty of options if you want to get away from the hotel for a bit. We went as far as Ayia Napa one day, for example.

We both agree that we would come here again in a heartbeat, a great mix of people, good accommodation, great food and drink and staff that were more than helpful.

5/5

Also look up ZEPHYROS ADVENTURE SPORTS for some great activities from Lee and his team. We went sea kayaking - review to follow.

Just back from the Akti Beach. We stayed 7 days all inclusive in a studio apartment. All was spotlessly clean. All staff extremely helpful and friendly without exception. The food was buffet, but everything offered was cooked deliciously and there was always plenty of choice. Building work next door was on going but didn't really annoy us.

On the down side, although the hotel do have a lot of Russian guests, it would have been better if the entertainment team were not so keen to offer mostly Russian styled entertainment. The best night was on the Sunday night when we arrived. A guitarist/singer was very good and played a good mix of music.

Just a note to a previous reviewer - we were only offered moussaka once and it was delicious.

Would be happy to return again.

Room Tip: Any room from 200 - 400 as these are not so close to building work. Our room was 614 and over looked...

Just returned with my family. Nice, seems fairly new. Clean and well looked after. We were all inclusive. Food was fine. Nothing exciting but fairly fresh and varied. Rooms are nice and spacious
Service in the restaurants was always with a smile. Bar service and waitress service was also excellent. 2 swimming pools, a busy one and another fairly quiet. We switched to all inclusive instead of self catering. Good value for money at approx 45 euros per person per day.
The only down side has been mentioned before and has nothing to do with the hotel. Cyprus has a large number of Eastern European visitors , mainly Russian who apparently have no idea of queuing or waiting their turn. Quite rude.
Didn't spoil my holiday though!

My sisters and I have just returned from our all inclusive holiday to the Akti. There were five of us and our ages range between 59 and 71.
We had a great holiday and could not have asked for more.
The staff are wonderful and nothing is too much trouble for them. Saje, Jenny, Petar, Silviya and Nadiya are to name but a few they made us feel special and no matter how busy they were they took time to speak everyday. The staff on reception were first class. We had a couple of issues that they dealt with immediately. One of my sisters needed medical treatment they helped us deal with this and made the necessary phone calls.
There was a variety of food everyday and a different theme each evening. As for the food being repetitive as stated in a previous review this could only be said of breakfast. They offered everything that people eat for breakfast everyday I don't call that repetitive I call that catering for everyone's tastes.
The rooms were very spacious and well equipped. The kitchen area was dated but was quite adequate. As we were all inclusive we only used the fridge and kettle but for guests self catering everything was supplied. The hotel is closing for refurbishment so I look forward to returning once it is completed and only hope they don't change things too much.
There is no beach and it's very rocky to get in and out of the sea. We knew this before we went and all had beach shoes which made it much easier. Once in, the water is beautiful and for anyone who likes to snorkel it's great.
Apart from the days we went for a walk as there was five of us we took a cab which only cost between 10-15euros. We went to Coral bay for the day which is beautiful. We took the open topped city bus, found out what we wanted to see and then returned the following day. There is so much to see in Pathos, the tomb of the kings and the mosaics were brilliant.
The entertainment was fine, we had no problem with other nationalities and enjoyed ourselves every evening. Nadiya works really hard and try's to make sure everyone has a good time.
We did the fireworks evening on board the Wave Dancer. We were late departing due to the late arrival of a wedding party. If I could fault it at all it would be to say that if they had announced the hold up it would have been better as we were getting ready to ask for our money back but once on our way the evening was fantastic and we enjoyed every minute.
The building work did not cause us any problems at all.
All in all we had a great holiday Paphos is a beautiful place and I hope to return very soon.

Room Tip: We were in rooms 304, 312 and 313. We were perfectly situated very close to reception. We were not t...

We have been here twice before and it was as good as previous, the only thing that is spoiling it and it is not the Aktis fault is, there are a certain nationallity of people who seem to think the staff should jump when they say, they dont know what manners are and they cetainly dont understand the word que, they just barge into the front no matter what, and it seems to be happening at other places as well. the Aktis rooms are clean and someone comes in to clean everyday with fresh towels, one thing dont take beach towels they provide them at reception, you pay 10 euros and can change them as many times you want over your holiday and at the end you get your 10 euros back. The staff are lovley especially the restaurant manager, Another excellant holiday at the Akti.

Just come back from the Akti Beach and it was a very relaxing holiday. Arrived late after a 2 hour delay and to be honest, first impressions weren't good. Reception area is minimalistic with stone flooring and doesn't look very inviting. In fact, the whole place could do with some personality. We didn't like our room and asked to be changed and were told to come back in the morning. Really impressed when we did - they'd made a note of it and got an alternative room available. If you want a poolview overlooking the sea, only room 701-710 have these and we paid a supplement. The rooms are apartments so come equipped with kettle, toaster, microwave and hairdryer (which is surprisingly good). You don't need travel sockets as our plugs fitted ok. And the air conditioning is the best I've ever experienced - it worked!! The rooms could do with freshening up as they look a little tired. The hotel is clean and tidy and the food is ok - fairly british in that not covered in garlic or oil. Could do with being a bit hotter though. They have a different theme every night.The service is good - Julian and Agnes in the bar area are so friendly and helpful. The guests are predominantly Russian and this is reflected in the entertainment. No chance of winning a quiz when they put in russian pop songs or films!! The hotel has nothing near it so if you want shops etc. you need to visit the harbour which is 10 euros in a taxi. You can find Debenhams, Next, Marks & Spencer and Mango there.And if you want an optician, there is one every 3 feet! There is a shuttle bus service from the hotel which goes 3 times a day. If you're self catering, there is a Lidl which takes about 20 mins to walk to . The resort is big enough for you to have your own space and there were plenty of sun loungers available. Wi-fi is hit and miss - you can get it in reception but not in the bar. You can get it on your balcony (sometimes) but not in your room.There is a beautiful cove next to the hotel but you need swim shoes to get in as there is no beach, just lots of stones and rocks. Apparently the hotel is closing for refurbishment in November and re-opening in April so it will be interesting to see what they do. The hotel being built next to it is going to be huge so Akti Beach has to up its game. Would I go back? Not sure - only because it has nothing near it and we like to go for a walk in the morning. But if you want a relaxing holiday - then this is it.

Room Tip: 701-710 are the rooms with poolview and seaview.

Have just returned from a lovely 2 week holiday at the Akti beach with my husband . daughter and her partner so mixed ages from 26 to 59 ...

I sometimes wonder if we were at the same place as other reviewers ...

The entertainment team of Michael, Lisa and Nadiya worked tirelessly encouraging people to join in the daily activities , which we did and can Ijust say have never in all my years seen someone managing to persuade so many people into the pool to do water aerobics..in fact one lady we met who was there for the 6th time said it was such a change from the previous year to have the instructor in the pool with you than standing on the side doing the excercise and not caring so well done Nadiya .at night we seen some of the entertainment some of which could be changed am sure but the lounge and terrace were full every night with the kids disco or face painting finishing at 930pm followed by either a show quiz or music and it was not all Russian guests who were in !

I never had any problems with most of the Russian guests they spoke to you or acknowledged you after a few days of seeing your face and certainly did not have any barging in front of me

The accommodation was clean and yes maybe a bit old fashioned but was adequate and maid service was daily.. Always choice for meals and you Could always find something to eat only thing would suggest would be maybe a choice of soups and in the salad bar some raw onion and maybe the tomatoes sliced rather than quartered (personal choice) I am fairly fussy when it comes to food (ask my daughter) and I did not starve.

The staff are a credit to the Hotel nothing was too much trouble and Saje and Jenny in the restaurant were great and always took time to speak to you and the waiters especially Salius and Petar were great. In the cocktail lounge Agnes Silviye , Julian and Indre worked tirelessly one of the other waiter was a hit or miss sometimes you got your drinks sometimes you never so we avoided him if possible...

Last but not least the reception staff ...everyone without fail was helpful and friendly ... Look forward to returning after the re-furb
