We stayed at Akti Retzika for the last week of October which is very end of the season. We wanted somewhere that was relaxing and offered as much peace and quiet as possible, and in this respect, it was perfect. The situation is right on the beach and we we fortunate enough to have lovely weather, so spending most days sat in the sun reading our books was idyllic. We rented a hotel room but were given an upgrade to an apartment, which only differed by having a small kitchenette area. If you go out of season, be prepared for solitude as the nearest shops/village are 3 miles walk, but we knew this in advance and suited us perfectly. The food here is lovely, with perfectly fresh ingredients including fresh local fish.
What makes this place very special are the people. Sotiria, her family and staff are just so friendly, and nothing is too much trouble for them. We have never been made to feel so welcome anywhere else, and we left feeling that we had made new friends.
Please bear in mind when reading this review, that we went right at the end of the season, purposely to avoid the maddening crowds and enjoy some "chill out" time, but I doubt if the people change in their ways just because they are busy.
Highly recommended for all.
