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

This hotel was ideal for a relaxing holiday and for wandering around Lipari. Super swimming pool with bar and free beach towels. We had a garden room with a patio but all rooms have balconies. The dining room has open air tables with buffet indoors. Staff took our luggage to rooms as well as taking cases to luggage room at... More

In June my wife and I had 3 most enjoyable days in the Aeolian Islands. A significant contribution to our brief holiday was the service provided by the Aktea Hotel in Lipari. A relatively new hotel, it is spotlessly clean and comfortably appointed. They provide a comprehensive and delicious breakfast. Enjoy to keep you going for much of the day.... More
