After reading many negative reviews about the Akti, we did have some concerns before we visited. On arriving, the staff at reception were very friendly. We stayed in a studio room which was very clean and tidy. There is a charge for air conditioning but we found that if we kept the curtains closed through the day when we were out, we didn't need it as it kept the room at a nice temperature. The maid visited every day, apart from the sunday and changed our towels etc.
The food wasn't very exciting but was ok and with a different theme each evening.
The pool areas were immaculate with plenty of sun loungers and parasols. We stayed by the small pool which was quiet and relaxing, the large pool attracted the families and is also were the snack bar is.
The hotel is a little out of the way but we knew this before we booked and hired a scooter for 3 days for 50 euros and less than 4 euros in petrol. The dirt track is a 5 - 10 minute walk to the main road where you can get a bus to anywhere for 1.5 euro. We walked this road a couple of times which leads to the Tomb of the kings road where there are bars and restaurants. You can get a taxi for 10 euros. If you go out for a meal, an absolute must is fat mamas. It is mainly young brits working there and the food is gorgeous. They even put on a little cabaret show which is very entertaining. We enjoyed it so much, we went twice in our one week stay!
The hotel shop sells a wide variety of things but is quite expensive. The entertainmet is very poor. On two ocassions whilst laying by the pool, the tanker truck came and emptied the waste sewer tank. I have never smelled anything like it in my life and had to go inside as the smell was so disgusting....
For what we paid for the holiday, about £700 for both me and my husband, 1 week half board, we can't really complain. Another positive - the temperature was still hitting 30!!!
