On a bit of a whim a few weeks ago we booked a last minute family holiday to the 5* all inclusive Akti Palace in Kos Greece. Amelie has been on our case about going back to Greece since we went to Rhodes back in 2012. It just so happened that our holiday to Kos coincided with Amelie’s 5th Birthday so we decided to keep it a secret until we arrived at Stansted. As you can imagine she was soooooo excited we we finally told her where we were going.
The flight out was okay but it happened to coincide with Harriets tea and bedtime so by the time we landed in Kos she was a bit frantic. Harriet is one of those babies who doesn’t want to miss out on anything so she fidgeted and cried most of the way Amelie on the other hand was fine plugged into Frozen on the ipad.
We were greeted at the our hotel with champagne and taken to our room by a golf buggy. The hotel was spotlessly clean, with amazingly friendly and helpful staff.
As with any all inclusive holiday you always wonder what the food and catering facilities will be like but the Akti Palace surpassed all of my expectations. The food was great – a fantastic selection all freshly made. As some of you will know Harriet has some food allergies and the hotel staff were only too happy to accommodate her needs. Each meal the restaurant manager would come and make sure we had everything she needed.
As we were away for Amelie’s Birthday I asked if we could order a birthday cake. However they already knew about it and made her an amazing chocolate moose cake all at no extra charge.
The hotel facilities were great, plenty of sunbeds, beach towels, lots of swimming pools to choose from, a spa facility, children’s clubs, tennis lessons and much more. There were restaurants or snack bars open virtually 24hours. Our room was cleaned daily and Amelie was really impressed that the towels were folded into the shape of swans and boats.
The weather for the majority of the week was glorious. I had such a great holiday that I have already been looking at booking another trip. The hotel was fabulous and lived up to all expectations and comments we had read on trip advisor. This is a hotel that I would definitely recommend.
