The Best Guesthouses and Hotels in Akrotiri Based on Reviews

Read up on these great hotels and guesthouses available in Akrotiri village as you prepare for your relaxing island escape.

1. The Fisherman’s House

Google Rating: 4.8/5 out of 144 reviews

While The Fisherman’s House is technically a guesthouse, it has many of the amenities that hotels also boast, such as free breakfast every morning, front desk access throughout the day and incredibly clean rooms.

But you’ll also get a quieter setting thanks to there being fewer rooms, which means fewer guests. The private pool features a poolside bar to help you unwind and relax. 

The property is family-owned, and the family takes pride in welcoming travelers to their homes. Located just 1.4 km from the Red Beach, it’s also an ideal location for enjoying the seaside.
