My wife and I stayed at the Aktea as part of a Travelsphere holiday and after a very busy first week this is just what we needed. The hotel is five minutes from the port, the staff were excellent, helping up with excursions, even dropping us off at the beach in their bus on one day. Rooms are spacious and... More

A bit late with the review, but on here again looking for hotels so I thought I would leave a quick review. The hotel is in the perfect location and is within a five minutes walking distance from the port, although the hotel will pick you up for free, just let them know. All the restaurants and buses (to the... More

Don't get me wrong there are lots of good things about this hotel. The pool is beautiful, big and clean. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, and made us feel very welcome with our little baby. They helped us with restaurant bookings and planning day-trips. I can't fault the staff at all. Breakfast was fab, with a great choice... More

We were intially planning to stay only one night in Lipari at the Aktea hotel and ended up coming back a few days later due to some Ferry issues. The hotel is very conveniently located for Ferry's, 3-5 minutes walk from the main harbour and is a short walk away (5-10min) to the main animation street. We didn't stay long... More

I have just returned from the most magnificent 10 days in the Aeolian Islands. Hotel Aktea was used as a base with day trips to the other islands and days spent meandering around Lipari. The experience was made even more memorable by the hotel staff and beautiful surroundings! Hotel Aktea is a family run hotel where you are treated extremely... More

The old town of Lipari is charming. Full of quaint streets, great bars and restaurants and right on the sea. This hotel is within walking distance of all of it and the ferry port. The hotel is warm & friendly and the staff welcoming. The bedrooms are huge with large terraces or balconies. The décor is typical Italian and it... More
