This is the latest hotel to land in the Atlantica Hotels & Resorts collection. A recent revamp means there's a smartened-up pool scene and a brand new waterpark.
The Atlantica Akti Zeus Hotel has undergone a complete makeover. There's now a new waterpark, a pair of spick-and-span pools, and a fresh range of family-friendly rooms
The property's got a beachfront spot, so the sea is a matter of footsteps away. For the best views, head for the sand-side restaurants and bars.

Lovely Hotel, great staff.
We were greeted at reception with flannels and a juice while booking in. the staff were very friendly and extremely welcoming. The suite we were shown to was clean, modern and very spacious. It had 2 bathrooms with beds in the outer room for my teenage son to have some privacy. There was only 1 telly in the main bedroom which meant we had to sit on the bed to watch anything as we relaxed to get ready each evening, would be better to have the telly in the outer room or in both rooms. The room did not have a balcony or a terrace which had been promised in the brochure, I spoke to the rep who said we could change rooms but we liked the room so decided to stay put. At 7 each morning though the hotel next door had a rubbish collection and deliveries started to arrive so if you are not an early riser or you are a light sleeper avoid room 200! The pool was great, always clean and well looked after. There were a lot of sunbeds but not enough for the amount of people staying in the hotel, if you arrived by the pool after 9.30 you were unlikely to get a sunbed. The rules of 10am are not adhered to at all the towels are on the beds before 7am! The beach is lovely and the sea is warmer than the pool so my son spent most of his time in there as the waves were fantastic for body boarding . The power station could really only be noticed from the beach so gave no issues at all during the holiday.The food was fantastic, there was a selection for everybody even the pickiest of eaters would find something they liked. there was a selection for special dietary needs too. The bars were open from 10am ant the drinks were always served with a smile, alcoholic and non alcoholic cocktails available all day! On the whole an amazing holiday, friendly efficient staff, gorgeous hotel, fantastic weather and lovely surroundings. couldn't ask for a better holiday. Definitely deserves a return visit can't wait to go back.More

Great Family holiday
We stayed here in October 2016 for our half term 2 adults and 2 children aged 6 and almost 2 in a family room with sliding partion great size room decent travel cot with mattress, TV, bath and shower, tea&coffee, fridge, cleaned daily. We only ate at main buffet restaurant as al carte either fully booked or closed but main restaurant was great lots choice breakfast best meal of day. Plenty snacks inc ice cream throughout the day. Staff v friendly. Pool freezing but actually most places we have been this is case. Entertainment was poor v v poor but we just had early nights and made most of the day getting g up early. Kids club nice girls but so so unsafe we stayed with our two only stayed an hr choice of 2 puzzles, TV or water pistol play one girl working 8-10 children adults came and went taking or dropping children no one signed in or out (we are used to holiday village password system) but as we on!y ever use a kids club on one or two sessions then wasn't an issue for us but some did leave their children all day according to the girl working there. Splashworld really good its for age 10+ on slides but my boys liked the kiddi pool. Beach was nice enough yes there is a sun bed charge we sat on towels. Lovely dotto train from outside hotel go on 2hr trip at 10am cost us 24euro went up into mountains to monastery and local village. Small supermarket 5mins walk away its up a load steps. Overall excellent value for money and children enjpyed themselves as did we.More
Loved hotel brilliant holiday
Great hotel, great service, great location, straight on to beach, walking distance from town, half an hour from airport, lovely food, hardworking, friendly staff, clean, nice mix of guests all getting on well together, especially enjoyed archery on the beach, nice room. What can I say we had a brilliant holiday and would love to go backMore
Hotel was superb. Arrived at 11.45 p.m.to be greeted with a glass of juice and after checking in a cold buffet was available to be taken to our room. Tea and coffee making facilities in the room as well which is a bonus in hotels abroad. Toiletries also provided in room and were restocked. Food was amazing so much choice. Had a packed lunch one day and were asked what we would like in our sandwiches (normally you just get whatever you are given), when we collected the packed lunch from the restaurant it came in a cool bag which we thought was very good. Staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Hotel is kept spotless. Would certainly recommend this hotel to family and friends and will be returning to the hotel again.More

Myself and my boyfriend stayed here at the end of October and the weather was still beautiful! The hotel was lovely-very modern and clean thanks to the maids. All the staff were so friendly and efficient, always looking happy. On a couple of occasions the receptionists were unhelpful and abrupt but overall couldn't fault the rest! The pool, water slides and the beach activities were brilliant! Food was lovely and also varied every night, including theme nights which mixed things up. The snack bar was our favourite place to eat during the day. Only downside to this section were that the all inclusive alcoholic drinks were not nice at all! There isn't too much to do around the area if you're someone that likes to be out and about plus I wouldn't really say it's for young couples-so I doubt we'd return due to this factor. The power plant that other people have commented on didn't bother us at all! There's plenty of activities for young children however for adults the reps and entertainment was shocking. To the point it was quite cringe-worthy and embarrassing, especially one girl who was very loud and clearly liked the attention. They sung the same songs and performed the same routine every night and after hearing it two or three times it became too repetitive!! If you're with Thomson I recommend not booking any excursions with them, we booked a trip to spinalonga and it was awful! Totally overpriced, rubbish tour guide and we didn't even get to look around all of the island! We were taken straight past the main buildings being told we'd have time to go back but this never happened-total let down. Wish we'd of organised it off our own backs using a local business. However I'd like to add this was not the hotels fault, purely Thomson. Overall it really is a beautiful hotel and you can tell the staff are extremely hard working. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and it was a lovely relaxing break. Thank you to everyone who made it so enjoyable. More

Just so you know, all slides here have a minimum age of 10 years and minimum height of 1.2m, with the exception of the Wave Ride which has a minimum age of 12 years and minimum height of 1.2m. Also, to make you aware, there is a power station located around 300m from the hotel. Whilst this is visible from some rooms and public areas of the hotel, it should not impact your enjoyment of the facilities here.
