Akti is a very good hotel with in one of the most beautiful places in the world.
Positives: Very nice staff (all were very helpful, sociable, smiling all the time, very prompt service); good food - varied breakfast buffet, great salad bar for dinner; very nice private beach - clear water, clear sand, good service (by pushing a button you can order directly on the beach), though you need to pay 3 euros for 1 umbrella + 2 sunbeds (which is a very reasonable price); GREAT beach bar - fantastic food for lunch, good coffee and refreshments, nice varied music (not too loud, not too soft); renting a boat to visit Ammouliani and Drenia beach is a must do (40 euros/boat + gas... 10 euros discount if you ask for a voucher at the reception); very nice pool bar - perfect place to relax after a hot day; Beach party every Wednesday - great atmosphere, happy hour for drinks, locals come to have fun there so it's great to mingle with them, very nice people, good music.
Could be improved: noise - since it's a place more for families with small children there's crying and shouting all the time - good place for families, not recommended for couples or people who want peace an quiet; you are not allowed to use the pool after 7 PM - which would be great after sundown; mosquito nets on the windows would be helpful - it's not always pleasant to sleep with the AC on.
Overall: great place for families with small children, we'll definitely be back - with children when we'll have them :)
