Akteon Holiday Village
a great pool & more
The Akteon has a great pool, but unfortunately they close it quite early, so I could not use it a lot. It was getting dark around 06.00pm and so they also closed to pool that early and did not open it again before 09.00am
Unique Quality: Akteon Holiday Village
is the name of this hotel because this hotel is not just a large building, but lots of small houses with a nice park between them and all of them share the pool etc. Only the reception and the restaurants are in a big building in the centre and there is a shop as well.
an excellent hotel
I had 2 nights in this hotel and it was a big difference from the room that I had in the Larco-hotel in Larnaca. In the Akteon everything was perfectely clean and when looking at the tiles in the bathroom etc. it was like you know it from lots of perfect hotels in Europeand elsewhere, BUT the price here was also double: I payed 42 euros per night at the end of October for the single-use of this big appartment that had a full kitchen, fridge, microwave and cutlery, pans and pots etc. for a family of 4 or even more.
This price of 42 euros was "self-catering" and in addition I was given the chance to book upon arrival for halfboard for 16 euros extra, while the dinner-buffet alone was 15 euros and breakfast-buffet was 7,50 euros, so these 16 euros are a good offer.
Another offer was "all inclusive" for 30 euros a day.
The Lunch-buffet is 11,50 euros, but during the day I was sightseeing, so only the Halfboard made sense for me.
Unique Quality: They have a large outdoor-swimmingpool and also some smaller pool inside and a family would find lots of facilities there in order to spend the day.
Directions: This hotel is at the very west-end of Paphos.
Akteon Tourist Village Hotel 4* AI
We chose to try out the Akteon Tourist Village as it isn't a tall sunblocking hotel, it's more of a little village, hence the name I suppose. The hotel is made up of the Main building with reception, restaurants, bars, indoor pool, spa etc, then lots of seperate buldings which have 2 appartments in them on above the other.
We coudn't Believe the room. It was fantastic. Spacious, VERY clean, well equipped and close to everything. It had a fully controlable Air Con unit which we NEEDED so much, a full kitchen, bathroom, safe, balcony, TV, massive wardrobes, phone, pretty much everything you can imagine you'd need really. The rooms were tidied every day, beds and rubbish bins cleaned up (be careful though as the maid came in one morning and I was asleep on the bed, no covers, stark bo**ock naked, she didn't seem to mind though). The room was 1 floor up and the only bug we saw was a tiny weeney lizard who we made friends with.
The main bar is a cocktail bar which serves up a wide range of cocktails from a menu, and beers including the local beer KEO and most international drinks. All drinks are bought to the table with free popcorn. We went all inclusive which is usually only all local spirits, wines and beers but there was an international beer included - Carlesberg. The other bar was where all the nightly entertainment was. Both bars are central to everything and access to everything from the bars is clear and easy.
Directions: In Between Coral Bay and the Harbour
