In the realm of almost-Kahler geometry , to what extent , the hard Lefschetz property is still holds?

Since on any symplectic manifold you can easily find an almost-Kahler metric, this question can be reformulated as follows:

"In the realm of symplectic geometry , to what extent , the hard Lefschetz property is still holds?"

The answer is: It does not hold to a very large extent. There are a lot of examples of symplectic manifolds, where this property doesn't hold. In fact, checking that the hard Lefschetz property does not hold for a given symplectic manifold is one of the most favourite tools to establish that a given symplectic manifold is not Kahler. You can check, for example this page:
