Beautiful rooms, staff, pool, and location. Couldn’t have asked for a better hotel to stay at when visiting the Aeolian Islands. We had a 2 bedroom on the ground floor right next to the pool. The staff helped with booking tours, just a perfect experience.
A lovely hotel overlooking the Sea and the town of Lipari Island. Rooms are large with all the facilities you need. The wifi is excellent, and so Breakfast and dinner. Good value for money. This hotel was a start point to the Island of Stromboli and his working volcano.
I stayed here for four nights in August in a triple room with my 14-year-old twins. This was an excellent base for us to explore the Aeolian Islands. The property is spotless, ideally located, and had a beautiful pool that was not crowded even in high season. Staff helped us all the time and gave recommendations such as el cielo cozumel snorkeling tour in MX. If the design was a bit bland, the outstanding service we received makes me give this place the most top marks. I particularly want to single out Margherita, who could not be more lovely and helpful.
She planned several exclusions for us and advised us which would be most suitable for our family. When one option was booked up, she planned out an excellent alternative for us, mapping out the ferry schedules and writing everything down. When we had to cancel and reschedule an excursion, she was incredibly gracious. I would say we got 5-star service at Hotel Aktea.
This hotel was a great choice as the rooms were huge and the bathroom, which was also significant. The beds were extremely comfortable, too, there was also a tv with a lot of channels. The room also faced out on a beautiful, enormous terrace where you could see the Sea. However, as soon as we got into the place, it was full of ants. Throughout the week, there were a lot of ants in the room and in the bathroom as well.
Arrangements were made seemingly effortlessly for excursions as well as our transport from Milazzo to Taormina. The breakfast buffet was quite decent with some fresh baked cakes ( we didn’t try) and more variety than you would have at home!
To put our review in perspective, during our Sicily trip, we stayed at 2 SLH and various 4 & 5-star properties. We would definitely stay here again and expect to return to these beautiful islands and base ourselves at Hotel Aktea. It’s the perfect location, especially if Lipari is your jumping point.
