Yes i know the basics of Greece and a cheaper end holiday before anyone says anything and says I am moaning. I'm not. I will elaborate on pros/cons at the end.

. Excellent resort
. Location excellent
. Big room
. Clean when cleaned.
. Big pool and plenty of beds.

. Ignorant owners/bar staff
.THE WORST bathroom I've ever had ANYWHERE in the world!
.Rock hard mattress
.Stinky flat pillows.

We arrived at 10.30pm at was told 2 teenage boys had a double bed after we had paid for twin beds. This set the tone. After a bit of a discussion it was resolved. We got shown to our rooms and as soon we opened the door the stench of sewage hit you. I said that it was a bad smell and Vivian (only found her name on the last day) said it would go. It did not, I am not making it up when I say it was one of the most vile smells I have ever smelt. We asked to move but no more rooms we got told. The mattress was awful and was rock hard and the pebbly beach we found was softer. We had one flat pillow each and when we asked for another each we acquired one only as there were no more! I tried turning the pillow over and fluffing it and it was vile disgusting smelling. The bathroom smell didn't improve and one day there was "sand" (could have been sewage, not sure) like over the floor. We kept flip flops on in there. The same evening I was up 3 hours vomiting at the stench. We got clean towels only every at least four days. Sheets changed once and the top sheet got folded and had to make ourselves.

I know the owners had a lot on but it didn't excuse interaction. It was a case of ask for a beer and pay for a beer. George was the most uninterested barman ever. Vivian's husband (no idea of his name) was pig ignorant. A number of times I said hello or nodded/smiled and on ALL occasions I was blanked. They have a BBQ weekly which he cooks but there is no Greek dancing or anything like that.

We looked next door at the Panorama and it was like the Ritz compared to the Akis. Don't get me wrong we had a good time due to the islands beauty and charm. The village is an amazing place and the most friendly set of people with amazing food and bars. We loved the fish restaurant, El Fesco and Sugarbush was superb.

I don't know if we were unlucky but the Akis not only needs a face lift but new beds/mattresses, buy new pillows and send the staff/owners on a people interaction course. I would/will 100% go back to Alykes but 100% NOT THE Akis.
