We have just returned from our second visit to the Akti , we stayed half board and I must say the evening meal wasn't up to the standard as last year , there wasn't much choice and in my opinion it was done on the cheap . You can eat in the blue sky restaurant that belongs the hotel and... More

Only complaint was that the breakfast was always cold no matter what time you came down for it.rooms spotlessly cleaned,small beach area at the front of the hotel where the sun loungers could be found.we ate at the restaurant which is a part of the hotel and found the food ok.

Just back from our 4th time at this lovely hotel and this time we went as a family instead of a couple (as theywanted to know what all the fuss was about) Well now they know as we all had a great time. The hotel, staff, area and people are all just so nice. Seemed like we were coming home... More

Stayed here on a half board basis but only needed B&B as there were better places to eat at night for a reasonable price. Stayed in room 211 which was very small but clean and served its purpose for a good nights sleep. The location of the Akti Olous is perfect to explore Crete, there are regular local buses to... More

We stayed at the Akti Olous for three nights in August and for a budget hotel, it pleasantly surprised us. We paid £30 per person per night for bed, breakfast and evening meal - superb value in my opinion. Our room was on the small size but clean with everything we needed. The pool bar area is beautiful with amazing... More

This hotel is in a great location in Elounda right on the seashore. The shore is shingle and not sandy.There is a rooftop swimming pool with a bar. The hotel is spotlessly clean and the staff are very friendly and helpful.Our room which is at the side is very quiet at night. Breakfast has many choices and changes every day-... More

It's a 2 hour transfer from the airport. Finding the hotel when dropped off by your coach at 01:00 in the morning isn't easy without a tour rep to offer guidance (jet2). It's down a dark alley which you follow to the bottom through overhanging bushes. Thankfully another person staying there showed us the way. A warm and friendly greeting... More
