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

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

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
