Great pool, rooms are spacious and staff friendly. The hotel is walking distance from town so most of our time was spent between the pool and Lipari itself. Hotel was expensive but that's Aeolian Islands in summer! Easy access to port for onward journey. Lipari is a great town with wonderful restaurants and pastry shops, can get very busy with... More

The port and the main street are a short walk up the road. The hotel offers a complimentary shuttle to and from the port! The... More

Our room had a spa bath & shower. Very relaxing pool which was a real refresher after a 12h+ journey from the UK - a real bonus for... More

We recently celebrated my friend's 70th birthday in this family-run, friendly hotel on the pretty island of Lipari. Lush gardens with bougainvillea, gardenia and palms lead down to the pristine pool. The rooms are spacious and extremely clean. Our rooms had their own private patio area; the bathrooms either had spacious showers with built-in seats or large jacuzzi baths with... More

Stayed here 4 nights with 2 children. We loved the pool area and the hotel rooms were lovely and clean. The location was perfect! A 5 minute walk to the port and city centre where you can easily take a bus to Canneto to go to the beach. The hotel staff were very professional and helped us with our requests... More

This place is fantastic. Very short stroll (less than 5 mins) into the main part of town. Easy walking distance to main port. Facilities are perfect.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Aktea hotel is conveniently located at the centre of Marina Lunga bay, close to the harbour and town centre of Lipari.Up until the 19th century, Marina Lunga (meaning “long marine”) was known as Marine of Saint Nicholas, the patron saint of the sailors and fishermen, whose worship succeeded the pagan Poseidon. In the religion of ancient Greece, the sea belonged to the Signoria of Nereus, who ruled over it with the help of the Nereid nymphs, each of whom had a name that recalled either their specific function in the court of Nereus, a favourite place, or another distinctive feature.In Greek mythology, Aktea was one of the hundred daughters of Nereus, a deity of the PreOlympic generation, preceding Zeus, Apollo and Poseidon. Aktea is the nymph of the shore, inhabitant of the coast. On Lipari, the shore par excellence was the Marina Lunga bay due to its extensive beach close to the fortified area where the ancient Greeks lived, and located on the most shielded part of the island. The name Aktea itself is directly related to this coastline as she was worshiped by the sailors and fishermen of Lipari. We hope that Aktea becomes synonymous of a pleasant journey and stay, in that new “Ulysses travellers” may come to discover the beauty and rich history of this Aeolian Archipelago. ... more   less
