We stayed at the Akama for one night. Everything is there and clean etc. However, the overall feeling is one of sterility, blandness and over-organisation. Bed and pillows not very comfortable, fair bit of noise from outside. Overall somewhat grim.

Our first impressions of Akama resort are very similar to that expressed by Margie K in her review. Ease of checking in (we had pre booked) and the beautiful open space feeling of the unit particularly with the folding doors to the balcony being wide open. The unit and its contents were scrupulously clean, the one thing we check at... More

We stayed in an apartment in whale watching season in 2012. From the moment we opened the door we felt comfortable and rested. Very clean, fresh, stylish room.
