We stayed at the Akti 25th July - 8th August 2012 as a family of 5 (3 kids - 9, 10 & 11) and I would highly recommend it for a good value, well run family holiday location.
We were upgraded to the new side which was lovely, we had a duplex room with 3 beds and an en-suite downstairs and a double with en-suite shower room upstairs, perfect for our needs and I would definitely pay a little extra to upgrade if we went back.
Food, as has been mentioned is very good for an all inclusive, there were sometimes queues for pancakes, omelettes or pizza but with some guests asking for 4 omelettes, or taking a whole pizza at a time then the staff do the best they can. We always found something nice to eat- hot and good variation at breakfast, lunch and dinner.
For me, the best thing about the Akti is the staff, the majority bend over backwards to help, Christina in the restaurant was brilliant and Sophia on the beach bar (or Sophia's bar as it became known!) is amazing, after 2 days she knew the names of our children and what we all liked to drink after dinner. One of the nights we mentioned we like Woo Woo's but the bar doesn't stock Cranberry. The next night we walked to the bar and she had personally been and bought Cranberry juice so she could make us a Woo Woo - now that's service!
We met the Manager of the hotel, several times doing his rounds - he was openly chatting to guests about the refurbishments around the hotel and grounds and very approachable. His office is in the main reception and most days he was in his office with the door wide open, totally accessible to all guests, clearly a man confident in his staff and property with nothing to hide!
Final mention must go to the animation team who worked round the clock to keep the kids entertained without ever being obtrusive - special thanks to Dan who our 3 adored - we are getting nagged to go back to Akti next year just in case Dan is there again! Great venue and we wouldn't hesitate to go back.
