The Hotel provides a delightful experience in Lipari, even more than it promises. We went in september, for 3 days at the end of the high season. Excellent location, very close walking distance to town, yet peaceful and secluded. Luscious gardens, excellent swimming pool (unusual: flat floor, all same depth, not indicated, about 1.60 m; no guard on duty, no... More

Staff was really helpful, flexible and friendly. Young, dynamic and very professional. Pool is amazing, ideal for young children (and parents). Situation is extremely convenient, close to the hydrofoils arrivals/departures and also close to the city center of Lipari (walking distance). Quiet location. The room we had was very clean and large (we have chosen a room for 4 people)... More

We stayed here for 5 nights in early September. The hotel was meant to arrange a cab (pre-paid) from Catania airport to the ferry. They forgot. We callled and it took them 2 hours to sort this out. We called to tell them the ferry time, but still had to call again on arrival at the port as they had... More

Approximately 30 of us used the Aktea resort for a scientific conference in April 2010. Without exception everyone was impressed with the excellent service, cleanliness, food quality and general ambience. We would certainly return to this lovely place and would recommend it as a conference venue. All the staff and the management were highly professional. Ian C. Univ of Southampton.

We arrived in Hotel Aktea after a long trip from Taormina with rough seas. It was great to be collected from the port by the hotels mini bus (and i dont think we would have found the hotel in the dark). We were pleasantly suprised on our arrival. Our room was beautiful and had a garden terrance overlooking the pool... More

We had a conference meeting for four days in AKTEA. We were very well taken care of, and the hotel is of good quality in all aspects. A few of us got a room with sea view.

The manager is a bit rude although the receptionists are very friendly. There is a view of and the constant sound of a manufacturing plant from the room balconies beyond a huge slab of a concrete terrace which is not pleasant. There is little atmosphere in the hotel and at times we felt unwelcome there as paying guests by some... More

We spent 3 lovely days at the Hotel Aktea. It is a large, modern hotel with a wonderful swimming pool, we only had breakfast included but that too was very nice too. This is an ideal place for a relaxing holiday, very close to the centre of Lipari but very quiet too and there is a shuttlebus to the nearest... More
