So the hotel is no longer "dated" as many of the previous posts say. The renovation is very modern and lovely. The pictures on their website are completely accurate, and you can tell the rooms are new and very clean. We stayed in the Panorama Suite for the first leg of our honeymoon, we were the first people to stay in it after the renovation. The ONLY negative thing I would say about the Akrotiri is that the suite does not have any sort of panoramic view and is thus kind of unfairly advertised. The balcony only faces one direction, but it is spacious and relaxing and has a beautiful view. The beach is down many stairs which were no problem for us but if you are elderly or infirm would pose a problem. The hotel restaurant serves a passable breakfast but skip dinner in favor of any of the other local restaurants which are more fun anyway. The bar at night is fun, there are lots of drunk retired Brits pounding whiskey with the owner who was a sweetheart himself. We kind of expected that staying in the fanciest room in the hotel we would get some kind of "welcome package" like champagne or a fruit basket, but there was none. Also they don't give you shampoo, only shower gel which is just soap and makes your hair weird. The bathroom is huge and has an extremely relaxing tub and a nice shower. There are very few English-language channels on the TV but we were so pleasantly tired after sunbathing, renting mopeds, eating lots of food, etc. that we didn't really mind. Other than a few of the luxury items we would expect in the Panorama Suite missing, the staff was very very friendly and welcoming. It kind of reminded me of Dirty Dancing, when they go to that resort in the Poconos or wherever, and the same girls who serve you yogurt in the morning are the ones leading the Greek dancing night and the manager of the hotel sends over whiskey and pistachios at night which is kind of weird but touching nonetheless. Recommended!
