We have been holidaying in this area for 25 years and love Crete and the people of Crete, however in all that time we never imagined we would be staying in this 5* hotel as we usually go self catering. Last June 2014 we went all inclusive for the first time at the Kyknos Beach Hotel which is just down... More

We are in October so obviously everywhere is deserted and lacking entertainment but the local bar near the hotel called the red lion is always fun with good atmosphere. The food in the... More

We were greeted by a very pleasant lady, Nandia, who checked us in and explained the whereabouts of the facilities in... More

Having just returned from a seven night stay we can honestly say that the hotel is fine. The Aktia is modern and very clean but perhaps a little characterless and impersonal. Positives are position on the beach, nice pool areas, sea view rooms and central location in Stallis. Negatives are lack of personality, confusing public areas (no signage or hotel... More

2 stars maybe. Far away from being 5 stars. Terrible food, terrible service, an ugly room. Rude employees. You ant get diet drinks, no choices for veggies. They also don't have a children's buffet. The internet doesn't work...

the hotel is pretty with great location next to lovely beaches and a busy but pleasant street full of shops and a veriety of restaurants and bars. Also, a short bus ride to the touristic center of Hersonissos. The hotel staff is also very nice and pleasant, the front desk staff is especially warm and welcoming, although dealing with many...
