This hotel was lovely and the perfect spot for relaxing. We stayed half board, but could have an evening meal if we wished. Also there was a snack bar on hand during the day. The food at breakfast was all you could ask for, it was hard to choose what you wanted as everything was fresh and looked so appetising.... More

This hotel was fabulous, spotlessly clean. Our room was on the small side but adequate, with a decent sized balcony with a slight sea view! Our bathroom had a bath with shower over and again was very clean. Breakfast had something for everyone and was replenished all the time. There was a restaurant on a long jetty across the quiet...

Would definitely recommend Akti Olous to anyone! Me and my friend have just got back from a weeks stay here, it was our first time in Crete and we had an amazing time, great hotel! :) The room was lovely, very clean, beds and towels were changed regularly, we had our own little balcony. The staff were all so friendly... More

We just returned from our stay and have immediately booked to return next year (as most of the guests do - it really is that good). Okay so the rooms are small and the showers aren't great but these are very minor niggles. The hotel itself is immaculate and the staff are very helpful and friendly. We stayed b&b and... More

We had 2 weeks holiday at this hotel in late June. The hotel is immaculate and the pool wonderful but the location is not for anyone who has difficulty on steps or steep inclines. The airoport bus drops the passengers on the main road which leaves the holiday maker to negotiate a very steep and winding hill to the hotel... More

Having just read the other review i have to disagree regarding Jet2. We travelled via JET2 on the 5th July for a weeks holiday and yes was a little dubious about a package holiday but I have to say we got value for money. Flights took off on time and yes it did take a couple of hours to reach... More

We were in a room that was not the best and not what we ordered with JET2 but could not be moved because full...I did hear this excuse a lot at reception a French couple were having the same problem. On booking We asked Jet 2 Holidays for a... More

Just returned from 2 weeks at this hotel and it was fab - we had a room on the second floor and whilst compact it was perfectly adequate. A big bonus was the free wifi which seemed to be pretty fast and available throughout the hotel. As other reviewers have mentioned the hotel is very clean and tidy with linen... More

Your impression of this hotel will depend very much on which room you are allocated on arrival. We were given Room 108 which, to be honest, was not good. The bathroom was tiny and the shower curtain simply didn't function so when we took a shower the bathroom flooded. The biggest disappointment was the balcony/terrace which was also tiny (not... More
