Ok, so me and my partner wanted to switch off and have a week away all inclusive to be as lazy as we could be and not think of food etc. Still, as we are a young couple I rented out a car with the hope to drive to a couple of beaches and bars etc. So, the hotel delivered in the area of cleanliness, good food etc but I warn you (if you are a you g couple) that there are no bars or beaches nearby for "fun". I would definitely recommend staying in Chania as there are plenty of pop up bars and beautiful beaches for you to drive up to every day. Here in heraklion we were bound to the hotel. So, all in all, good experience the hotel was great (and we still managed to drive to Bali beach and the palacw of Knossos which is nearby) but this is a family orientated hotel. Loads of families and kids. If youre young, stay in Chania. Trust me, do the research (unlike I did :D). Ps: also Elafonissi beach is just off the coast of Chania (Elafonissi is one of the most beautiful beaches in the world!!).

"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!)
I stayed here with my wife and daughter as our flight was arriving in Crete at stupid o'clock in the morning and our main hotel for our stay would not have room ready until after 14:00.. This was all due the airline changing the flight times..
I opted for the Handakas due to its good reviews and its location being over the room from our primary hotel...
The staff are lovely and seem like they cannot do enough to help you.. That was a great welcome to Crete and one we remembered thoughout our stay and to this day..
The room we had was a little knackered but we made the best of it seeing as it was only going to be for about 8 hours so we could get out heads down for a little while then get some breakfast and them decamp to our hotel across the road...
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.
