This is a hotel with very good location, and we had a room on the top with a sea view. Room was clean, large enough, with balcony. Food: good choice for breakfast, not always for dinner (sometimes too much vegetables). Nice small private beach, but during the weekends you have to book your umbrellas a day before, since it used to be crowded. Staff in hotel helpful and kind, but in the beach bar not always versed in their job. Pool small, but clean. Room maid used to clean very lately, even afternoon.

Akti is a good hotel for a families with small children. It is located very close to the village of Ouranopolis (5 minutes drive from village) . Though it is not old hotel (as I understood it is build at the end of the 90's) it has been recently renovated and overall it is been kept in good condition.
We have been accomodated on a HB , the food was generally OK , good choice for breakfast as well as for dinner At breakfast there was always fresh pie ,andtThe best (my choice)was when they have served Greek cuisine (souflaki, mpofteki...) and there was always fresh seasonal fruits.
The pool was excellent, it is open from 11-19h , and very importantly cleaned on everyday basis ( I witnessed it every morning).Just nearby there is pool bar and large part of the hotel is well covered with a Wi-Fi- which is free. I note it is free, because I have witnessed in some hotels nearby, the Wireless internet is charged!
The hotel is well cleaned, they clean the rooms every morning after the breakfast and change the sheets every 2 days.
The beach is very close, sandy , just under the road leading to Ouranopollis (small tunnel) and it is fair enough for small kids. There is a beach bar serving grill food (gyros , soufalki...) and it is not expensive.
The umbrellas and sun beds are charged 3 EUR per day (for all) which is Ok price compared to the prices in the 1st leg (Kassandra). It was a custom for people in the morning to book umbreallas of the 1st line near the shore.
The staff were very polite,almost everyone speaks solid English so that was not an issue.
We were accomodated in standard room with bunk beds, jsut enough what we needed.
At night once or twice per week there is a karaoke, which was very funny especially for the kids.

Overall it is nice hotel for families, not expensive, and we (family of four , 2adults + 2 kids) will likely visit it again.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view, not to be regreted ;)

My family (two kids, Mrs and I) stayed this June in Akti. Very nice ten days of relaxation, excellent food, amazing water (clear and warm). This was our first time in Greece and, for sure, not the last. We used to go Croatia and Monte Negro before, but Greece gave us much more value for the money. In short:
Good: staff very professional, room with balcony and beautiful sea view, clean (change of bed sheets every day - a quantum leap compared to HR or CG at the same price range), food was excellent (amazing salads), sand beach clean and not crowded at all.
On the minus side: just one remark, really. There's no place for evening walks (apart from the beach, but it would be nice to have a promenade). What we did was to go to Ouranoupoli (shuttle bus) and had a nice evening walks with a bit of shopping, beer etc. As for the loud music, only one night there was a beach party, but I found it quite OK, refreshing almost.

Room Tip: Sea view rooms are a bit more expensive, but it's worth it. The morning coffees at the balcony w...

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 :)

Room Tip: Rooms on the north west side (not facing directly the beach, not facing backwards to the parking lot...

Having wonderful memories from my first visit to Akti Hotel which took place in 2003, this year I've booked it again. Located on the main road that comes from Ierissos very near to the village of Ouranoupolis - the entrance to The Holy Mount of Athos - the hotel offers a beautiful atmosphere with excellent scenery and tranquile environment. It has extremely ingenious architecture as its traditional greek buildings spread around the slopes.
The sea in front of the hotel is very clear with sandy and clean beaches that can be accesed from the main building by an underground tunnel which is crossing the road that separates the hotel from the seaside shores. Most of the rooms have sea view from the balcony across the pool straight onto the beach. The hotel itself is immaculate both outside and inside. Free private parking in shades is available. The only thing that can be improved is the food variety from the breakfast and maybe some amenities from the regular rooms that are slightly rusty. Should I mention that immediately after my departure I've booked the same room again for another holiday in September?

I stayed with my wife for 3 nights, last July, for a short summer break at Akti Ouranoupoli. They offered us a junior suite at very good price and we accepted it. The suite was absolutely marvelous from all aspects. We chose half board, breakfast was incredible, much food variety and top quality. Dinner, served at pool area, could be of better quality, although rich enough from buffet. Nice pool area, clean pool warer and nice pool bar for relaxing. The beach just in front of the hotel, is beautiful with crystal waters, like all the nearby beaches in Chakidiki. They offer free sunbeds and umbrellas to hotel's clients. Village of Ouranoupoli is 5 mins by car.
