Perfect vacation!

  • June 2015
My friends and I stayed at Aktia hotel for almost one week (19-24/6) and we had a perfect vacation! When we first arrived, the room was clean and looked like new with a beautiful view of the pool and the sea. Most of the rooms have a great view. The pool looked great (the best pool in Crete, for sure) and the staff were very polite and nice to us when we first arrive, they gave us water and food to the lobby which was great after the hard flight. The WIFI worked very slowly in the hotel during the ... day because of the load, the hotel need to improve this service as guests rely on the hotel WIFI during the vacation instead of buying data packages. The hotel's location was excellent, a great promenade with lots of shops outside the hotel. All you need is in front of the hotel within walking distance. If you want to travel on the island it is best to rent a car or ATV for the best experience. Despite my comments about the lack of staff and WIFI, I am very happy that we chose this hotel and I will recommend it to all my acquaintances. I will absolutely return to Aktia hotel in the future! Highly recommended. read hotel review

    The meals were varied and delicious, we were delighted to hear that we had an option reserve a place in the hotel restaurant "La Luna" But because there was no a great demand for the restaurant at that day they canceled our dinner. I think the hotel should do a better job publicizing the "La Luna" restaurant, the guests who come do not know this option exists. Unfortunately the amount of staff in the dining room was minimal, so the waiters struggled to provide service to all guests in the dining room. Every meal we waited about 20 minutes to half an hour until we were given drinks. The hotel free bar was close to the pool and there was a variety of alcohol, but still- there was a lack of staff and bartenders in the free bar, and very large line for ordering drinks.

    The hotel's location was excellent, a great promenade with lots of shops outside the hotel. All you need is in front of the hotel within walking distance. If you want to travel on the island it is best to rent a car or ATV for the best experience. Next to the hotel there is a car rental from guy named Ben, his prices are fair and cheaper than the others (we did a research and Ben was the most recommended near the hotel), with full insurance on the vehicle ATV. He is great and I highly recommend renting it from Ben.

Main problem of the hotel? The manager!
  • Hotel not recommended

  • Beach holiday
  • June 2015
Good points: The food is amazing and quantities over provided The crew, from housekeepers to the chef are very friendly professional and approachable The hotel is big and nice Good location Bad points: It's a tour operator only hotel (you are a number) Not an international 5 stars hotel Wifi connection is the worth ever No sound isolation in the room, woken up every day by other guests slamming doors The beds are hard as rock, we had to put a thick blanket over them to be able to sleep Not enough sun beds for all the guest, so the ... first who puts his towel on it will keep it for the whole day The gym is made for old people, you can visit one time, then you are charged for the next sessions You can not have a guest in your room even if identified and you pay extra fee, even if family member Hotel is not able to provide the rule of procedures The manager is the only one who is not smiling not visible to customers, he has a con-descendant attitude, and delegates problems to his crew, defanatly a macho control freak putting jeopardizing pressure on his team read hotel review

Very nice Hotel, staff ist very kind and helpful, the food is various, the area from the Hotel is big, so there is space in all areas, the restaurant is big enough... The only think is that we have to go out of the pool at 19:00 o clock, this should be later... The La Luna Restaurant is very good, the food and the evening program. read hotel review
