We travelled to Akti palace at beginning of June with Broadway travel. We arrived very late at night and after an efficent check in and being taken to our room on a golf buggy( only two mins walk) we were able to return to the dining room to eat. maria at reception was always friendly and helpful.
Our room was large , very modern and clean. there was a fridge in the room with water , fruit and wine and tea and coffee facilities. The rooms were cleaned daily and towels and beds changed every other day. the fridge was replenished each day. Air con in the room and a hairdryer in the bathroom. Shower was good and always plenty of hot water.
We were in a room on the ground floor with a small pool that we shared with 3 other rooms. it was so peaceful and great to be right outside our room. we did go to the main pool on one occasion but preferred the peace at our little pool. At night the complex was very quiet and easy to sleep.
The food was good although lunch and dinner were very similar, lunch at the pool bar was good and a nice change from eating in the restaurant at every meal. It was lovely to sit outside the restaurant at night and the staff were friendly and helpful. The wine and drinks were all very good. As another guest said the lady on the egg stand in the morning needed to learn to smile! we ate in the greek restaurant and the food was good but the restaurant lacked a bit of atmosphere, maybe a bit of greek music!
In the evening we used to sit outside and have a drink and chat, the young girl and young man from the bar were lovely and always smiling and interacted with the guests. The hotel contained guests from many countries.
We did go next door one evening to see the fire show, but it was soo bad it was good!
We were happy to relax and chat in the peace of the Akti Palace but there was games and music all day in the Akti Beach if you wanted it. there is a gift shop at both hotels for gifts and any forgotten toiletries, like the mosquito relief stick I forgot to take!
The town of Kardemena was about a 45 minute walk along the sea front and this was very pleasant in the morning and evening but far too hot during the day, we did get the shuttle which only took 10 mins. The streets around the square have lots of shops and restaurants but unfortunately a lot of the shops and restaurants on the outskirts have closed down.
We took a boat trip over to the island of Nisyros which we booked through an agent in Kardemena, it cost 48 euros for both of us and it was well worth the time and money . We set off at 9.30 in the morning and sailed over to the island , then got a coach to the crater of the volcano which was amazing to see, we then had a stroll around the town and lunch there, a really good day out.
We went away for a relaxing break in a good hotel which is excactly what we had. We dont tend to go to the same place twice but if we went to Kos again we would definently go back to Akti Palace.
