This hotel is set in the most beautiful location and has the potential to be excellent, but all let down by the food. FREEZING cold is not an exaggeration when it comes to all dishes of food. Hotel Manager does not seem to care. Holiday was ruined by poor service by staff and we eventually sorted out our issue more... More

We recently stayed at this hotel after booking with an agent. Sadly the agent got our booking wrong and booked only two people not three into this hotel. The hotel after three days moved us into the main hotel from a sister annex located across off site. So this wasn't a great start but no fault of the hotel. The... More

The Aktia hotel is excellent. Do not be put off by any bad reviews. The family room was large and spacious with a door to separate the rooms, if needed. The safe is free, as is wifi. The hotel is right on the beach and has 3 swimming pools, 2 adult pools & a children's pool. There are always plenty... More

Location: Malia is resort location and the hotel is quiet accessible. Hotel location is very nice. By the see, with the beach next to it. Room: They... More

We had a really good holiday at the Aktia Lounge & spa. in July 2014 This was our second time at this hotel although it was called the Sentido Anthousa last time. Not a lot has changed since, it is still a great hotel right on the beach with its own sunbeds. We had a sea view room this time... More
