Great location, brilliant beach, shops and bars. Shops stayed open until at least 11. Locals were lovely and really helpful. Good bus service and cheap which the locals helped us with, explaining that we should buy our bus ticket in the supermarket as it was cheaper. Plenty of atms. <br /> <br /> Easy to book excursions to Spinola, Samaria Gorge, Knossos etc. Coach mostly picked you up from the hotel or a taxi was sent to transport you to a pick up point. Lovely taverna near the hotel called uncle George -3 course meal for 2 was only €38 and free raki and an extra free dessert. <br /> <br /> Small water park near by. Water sports centre locally too.

Lovely area. It's only downfall is the Greek economy, which is beyond their control as lots of shops etc. are empty. We spent a couple of lovely afternoons in a local taverna and even shared birthday cake with Helena. Lovely friendly locals.

Amoudara is a quiet area - there are restaurants and bars nearby but these are never noisy. The corner shop stocks everything you may have forgotten and if the don't, ask! Nicos and his family will get it for you.

All the restaurants we went to had good quality food, there was no need to request a starter or a dessert as you get one for free. The meal usually starts with bread with a greek dip and dessert is often fruit. The meals are all reasonably priced. The beach is very big and the loungers are free. We took the land train up into the hills to visit a monestary and the view from there was awesome. My only criticism of the resort is the footpaths need a good clean but when you consider it has not rained since April, although we did have a short thunderstorm whilst we were there, I suppose nothing gets washed away. This is a good resort for couples and families.

Akti is on the near side of Amoudara and the shops and cafes of Amoudara are 10 minutes walk. There is a fairly pleasant choice of eateries and touristy shops on the main street running parallel to the seafront. Alternatively, is a good location to hop on a bus for the short journey into the centre of Heraklion, which is where everything happens.

Not an awful lot to do. View from beach looked like dockyard at one end and power station at the other but nice and sandy and sea was lovely. Not enough places to eat out.
