“excellent hotel which lived up to its expectation”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013

My wife and I have just retured from a week at the Akti Palace. The hotel is relatively new and is of the more modern hotels I have seen in Greece. The room and bathroom facilities are very clean, modern and well maintained. We asked for a sea view and we were upgraded by very helpful receptionist staff. All the staff spoke good english which really helped. The beach is located very close to the hotel which was nice and clean with plenty of sunbeds but the beach has a lot of pebbles/stones on it. The location is out of the way but there is a free frequent free hotel shuttle which takes you to the nearest town Kardamena which is 10 mins on the bus where you can pick up a bus service to Kos Town for 6 euro return. This takes 45 mins from Kardamena. A taxi to the airport from thehotel wil cost you 20 euro each way if you want to avoid paying for the bus transfer which in hindsight I would have done as it would be much easier and quicker than paying for the bus transfer as it only took us 20 mins in the taxi going back as there was a mix up with our transfer. We went all inclusive and the food was very good, lots of variation and the quality was very good. The greek restaurant in the hotel was the best as you would expect! The largest negative for me was the amount of ignorant crabby faced russians walking around like they owned the place in their tight budgie smugglers! I nearly had a few scrapes with Boris and Yuri as I dont have the patience to take it lying down I'm afraid! The staff were all very helpful and really polite so nothing but praise for their patience. Other than that I will finish by saying we had a great relaxing time and would really recommend the hotel it if you simply want to chill out beside the pool or beach for a week, if you want something more lively where you have easy access to bars and restaurants at night then this is probably not the best option unless you are prepared to travel by bus/taxi each night as walking would be too far.

Room Tip: ask for a sea view upgrade!

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2013

We stayed in hotel for almost 2 weeks in June 2013 and we were very satisfied. Hotel is pretty new and so arranged in modern style. Everything is neat and clean, rooms are being cleaned every day with fresh towels, daily supplied minibar and so on.

Restaurant was up to 5* standard, plenty of food whenever you came. We can recommend all 3 special á la carte restaurants (sea food, asian and greek). Especially good were drinks at bar with not only local beverages but with internationaly known drinks as well. In hot summer days we will remember local made frappé.

Pool area was standart, plenty of beds during the day, nice big pool. Problem was sun loungers and beds at beach ... as we vere told hotel is still beeing equipped with them and as such it can be problem to find a place if you are not an early bird. The only dissappointment was beach itself which was made of gravel and entrance to sea which was very stony and only chance to get into the sea was on few artificial made entries (line of bags). Other than that no complaints, sea was crystal clear.
