Only stayed one night after visiting Knossos, but the kinda place you wish you planned to stay more. Right on the beach with a private balcony with sea view. Very friendly front desk. Great breakfast with a lot of variety. Private parking. Really good restaurant a few doors down. Really could not be more pleased with my stay.

I stayed here for 9 nights. It is well situated, right at the start of Amoudara Beach. My room on the ground floor was very comfortable, with a double bed, bathroom and a little balcony with table, chairs and a clothes airer - very good for drying wet towels and swim wear. The breakfast was fine, a good choice , served by very helpful staff. A short walk past the swimming pool ( very clean and warm, lovely to swim in ) and you are right on the beach which is sandy and the water is clear and warm. There are plenty of good restaurants and shop nearby, including a large hypermarket only a few minutes away. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Went there just after Crete reopend after the Corona lock-down. Akti Corali is situated between the centers of Heraklion (10 min by car) and Amoudara (10-15min walk). The hotel has a swimming pool and direct access to the beach. Most tourists or locals probably enter the beach nearer to Heraklion or Amoudara meaning that the beach in front of Amoudara is relatively quiet. The beach would be perfect for families with small children as there is enough room to play around. Amoudara is a perfect starting point to explore crete. We hired a car with Holliday cars just across the road and got a nice discount because were staying in Akti Corali. Rental cars can be parked for free at the hotel grounds. The room is decent although the matrass was too hard for my liking. Shower is warm and all rooms have a small fridge and a balcony. Would recommend for a couple of days!
