“Amazing holiday!”
Reviewed 13 June 2014

Just got back from a week away at akti beach hotel, this was our first holiday abroad and can honestly say it was excellent. The hotel complex is always clean, rooms are cleaned daily and it is very rare that you find rubbish around the hotel. rooms are as true as the pictures - clean, neat and tidy. There is a huge selection of different foods from different cultures, all food was really good!
Aircon and tv remote - 20 euros deposit, safe is 20 euros which is non returnable - both of these are for one week.
Entertainment - the animation team are excellent all provide good entertainment and try their best to get everybody involved with both day time and evening entertainment - couldn't fault them at all!
Bar staff and restaurant staff are excellent too, very friendly, always polite and will always make the effort to speak to you.
Reception staff are not as friendly - only let down of the holiday.
The beach is just outside the complex, lovely beach but is a little stoney, recommend buying beach shoes from the supermarket.
There is 3 swimming pools, 2 quieter ones and the main pool near the restaurant, no need to rush for sunbeds as there is always some left.
Overall we had a lovely holiday and would defiantly go back.

We stayed at Akti Beach Club 5th - 12th June 2014.
Overall,for the price we paid we have no major complaints. Of course their were some disappointments and I will mention these later.

The hotel is situated some distance from Kardamena, but this is no problem as there is a frequent shuttle bus service laid on by the hotel. The hotel is kept spotlessly clean and the rooms and balconies are lovely (judging by some other reviews I suspect not all rooms are to the same standard)?

The food on the whole was very good, but as other reviewers have mentioned, can be repetitive. As we only stayed for a week, and sometimes ate outside the hotel, this was not a problem for us.

Bad points:
On arrival at the hotel (around 10.30pm) we were checked in and told to leave our bags at reception. The restaurant was closed but some food had been left aside on the hot plate for late arrivals. This turned out to be stone cold lasagne & Luke warm soup! Not good enough after a long day of travelling!

After some vague directions We were then left to wander around in the dark to find our room. I'm told others were taken by buggy along with their luggage, so I don't know what went wrong there? Anyway, again, not good enough!

The reception staff in this hotel need to take lessons in customer service. The big guy ( May be Belgian or German) in particular needs to find new employment. The most rude receptionist I have ever encountered in many years of travelling. Not good enough!

I know the above 'bad' points may seem petty, but they let down an otherwise excellent stay.
I note that there are no management responses to reviews on this board, and this seems complacent in the extreme. Surely, they must want visitors to visit year after year and should be looking to improve in areas that desperately need it? The reception is simply shocking at this hotel.

Room Tip: We syed in room 955 which was lovely. Spacious and a good view of the hotel grounds and main pool ar...

If you like just sun bathing, eating and drinking all day then this is the place for you.
The hotel is situated in lovely grounds with the gardeners working hard all day .
The beach is not great, it is not very easy to get in to the water with very big pebbles all along the shore line .
The water sports centre only had 2 kayaks ( only 1 working ) and 2 pedalos for our hotel and the sister hotel next door .there are other water sports on offer but these have to be paid for separately.
Rooms are nice and kept clean (but beware of the shower , water temp gets hot then cold without you touching it ) .
We went to play crazy golf and the reception staff only gave us one ball between 4 of us to play with , this is how they do it .
The main swimming pool is where all the action is and is good fun , if you prefer peace and quiet there are 2 other swimming pools ( which are better than you would find as a main pool in other hotels )which are lovely and the animation team do not bother you at these .
The 5 aside pitch is astro turf and is very good , only down side they keep it locked and only open it up at certain times and you have to supply your own ball and also they allow youngsters and adults to play at the same time so you have to watch what your doing .
The kids club looked good for the smaller kids , my son is 11 and in the evening not much for him to do , no gaming machines ( only table tennis or air hockey )
Do not take any towels with you as the hotel supply them for a small deposit which you get back when you return them .
We walked to Kardemena a few times along the sea front and it takes about 40 mins , there are several place you can stop at along the way for a refreshment break .
Food was nice and my son loved the sushi ,
All in all we had a good holiday and all the staff worked hard and long hours , some things can be improvedbut if you like a relaxing holiday you can not go wrong with this place .

Room Tip: Hair driers and towels supplied

Where do I start thats the question? This is a really good hotel with lots of pluses but unfortunately for me there was a few minor niggles.
When we arrived we were seen to quickly and our cases were taken to the apartment by one of the buggys which was good, especially with three kids it toe, its a help to have a hand with your luggage. Our room was a superior family room. I don't know if the family rooms vary but i read some comments about the rooms being pokey, but ours was massive. We had a double bed and three single beds which is good compared to previous holidays where we had a mattress on the floor.
The first niggle we had was the showers...oh dear, ive never known anything like it. for a big hotel they really need to sort out the water pressure, They were either scorching hot or freezing. You could get a good flow of water if you took the shower off the hook but if you put it back up on the hook it would just trickle out. this made it pretty difficult to wash your hair etc. We woke up one morning to brown water, but to be fair the problem was quickly verified.
The food in the hotel is good probably the best ai ive been to. There is loads of choice at both dinner and tea. lots of pasta meats etc. It did get a bit repetitive after 2 weeks but i suppose any all inclusive hotel would.
I have mixed reviews about the staff. The staff on the reception desk are so rude. When my hubby complained about the shower they just shrugged their shoulders at us. The reception staff let the hotel down to be honest because the restaurant staff are really nice (not including the bar staff) -grumpy!
The three pools are all nice we spent time at them all, the main pool is where its all going on. there isnt really much entertainment around the other pools but are good for relaxing and if you want peace.
The kids club is good, and the lady who runs is Barbera is lovely and my kids got really attached to her. However they need more staff in there the poor girls run off her feet. They also need to stick to the time table as its a bit annoying when your child wants to go for a certain activity but they've already done it earlier in the day.
The evening entertainment leaves a lot to be desired. The mini disco starts at 8.45 and its pretty much the same as everywhere else ive been to be fair, but the shows are dreadful. I know the entertainers work really hard but they really need to come up with some better material. The theater where they have the evening entertainment isn't the best either, hard wooden benches to sit on, and if it rains theirs no other venue apart from the main pool bar, which is now way big enough to do the mini disco or the shows from.
The beach was a let down, very shingle and rocky.
Over all a good hotel, I probably would return.

Good hotel, room clean, neat and tidy - somewhat basic ( more travel inn/ premier inn than a luxury hotel) but then we didn't pay for a luxury hotel!

Several swimming pools including little ones for the kids so plenty of room. I imagine in high season it could get crowded but at end of May it was wonderful. Enough sun loungers, room to swim and for kids to play without causing problems. We were all inclusive and food was fine - a great selection suitable for everyone plus free wine, beer or cocktails every meal.

Entertainment/ kids club staff worked very hard to keep people entertained from beach volleyball, aqua gym to a fire show and cabarets - they were a bit hit and miss but they put in a lot of effort for everything.

Would recommend this to family groups or groups of friends.

Hotel staff were all helpful and pleasant with the exception of Sean( jean?) French reception staff who was rude, didn't care about customers and THE most unhelpful a*$e I've ever had the misfortune to deal with in over 20 years of travelling.
Everyone else at reception were lovely and helpful but he was obnoxious and a snotty idiot!

Be prepared to pay deposits for use of beach towels, air con in rooms, tv remote etc but that is all refundable - NB we couldn't find any English speaking tv but we weren't in our room other than to sleep so didn't care.

There is a supermarket at the edge of the resort near the beach and a shop on site which sells tourist goods/gifts etc as well as drinks, suncream, toys etc and all the little bits and bobs you might have forgotten to pack.

All in all a very nice clean place to go with the family and I would recommend this for a chilled out holiday.

Room Tip: Some rooms are further from the restaurant and pools than others. If you had mobility issues you mi...

Just come back after a week or 5 1/2 days of great weather. Really taken back by how nice the place is we had read the reviews but u never know. Place lovely and nice we'll kept grounds. Very cosmopolitan with lots of Germans French Dutch Polish and other eastern bloc. Food good but not enough hot veg for me personally I preferred the breakfast and the lunches to dinner. Kids club sand animation team do a fantastic job and our daughter (7) had a ball. The evening entertainments was in parts great but sometimes a bit poor and needs some freshening up. For a four star complex it ticks the box and we'll done to the animation team particularly ashley, Barbara and Lukas...others too but forgot names. The only let down is the beach at best a scruffy gritty stripped sand beach but I knew that before I went so it did not affect our holiday but if u want to laze on a lovely sand beach this is not for you really. This is a great complex holiday place and would defo come back

We stayed here for a week in May this year and found the hotel to be a good choice. We have stayed in Kardamena several times but never at this hotel and only booked it as it was the only accommodation we could get for 3 adults in 2 separate rooms.
The accommodation was excellent, very clean and spacious with a faultless maid service. The complex was also very clean and well maintained at all times.
Although all inclusive we did not eat in the hotel every night, but when we did the food was very good and there was plenty of choice, we ate breakfast here every day and this was also good, the manager, Heracles and his deputy were always present to ensure food and service were both of a high standard.
We did not attend any of the shows or entertainment so cannot comment about these.
Overall the hotel is of a very good standard and we would return.
