Stayed from 3/8/15 to 15/8/15, all inclusive. Great staff, great facilities, great location, hotel has private beach with a decent number of sunbeds. Although I have food allergies I could have a substantial meal at each sitting, chef being very helpful with advising as to ingredients of each dish. Whether you prefer the beach or the pool for lounging, get out there early as the hotel was predominantly occupied by French and German guests who seem to have an ethos of put your towel on the sunbed and turn up when you like. No disrespect to either nationality but seems to be their norm.
Having said the above about sun beds I can not think of a holiday which was more relaxing than this.

"Perfect location on beach and very close to City"
Great hotel, perfect location on beach and short bus ride into Heraklion for Knossos and the two museums. Resort is fairly quiet with a handful of bars and restaurants which suited us fine. Very clean and hotel staff are lovely and very friendly. Rooms are quite basic and a little outdated but that's the only downside I can think of! All in all, a perfect place to stay and would highly recommend.
We have been so well served with a free extension of stay by Sophie that we cannot give a bad review. The room was average size with AC & balcony.
They were a moisty smell in the room. We found the solution by cleaning the filthy AC filters. The people who clean the linens are surely smokers because the sheet had a strong cigarette smell (should be a easy solution). Beside that all was OK and close to your need. Just 5 min. Walks you can pick the bus #1 (next to Castro Hotel) to the airport (1.70€ from the machine)
Family run hotel - lovely family too! It is very basic, the pool is a medium size, the rooms are a good size with excellent air conditioning. I stayed for 4 days on a room only basis and glad I did because breakfast (€5 per day) was not to my liking at all the food just look dried and old so I opted not to have it. The purpose of this mini break was to just relax and do nothing which I did. Unfortunately, my room was right by the main road so I heard every single motorbike that went by all day every day even with the double glazed windows and slatted balcony door it was still noisy.
"Good value hotel with friendly and helpful staff"
Akti Corali is a great place to stay if you mainly want a base for touring, or prefer to just sit on the beach or by the pool and relax. The hotel only serves a buffet breakfast, no other meals, so you'll need to go out for lunch and evening meals, which may not suit everybody.
The pool is nice and the hotel is located directly on the beach.
I stayed in late September so it wasn't busy. The pool bar was closed during my stay.
It's good value for what it is but if you want lots of facilities, a proper restaurant, or room service then look elsewhere (and expect to pay more!)
