Fantastic hotel and as welcoming as before when we visited. Michael and Cornelia were on hand to answer and queries every day (not that we had any!!) Lovely evenings sitting on the terrace with other guests and being hosted by Michael & Cornelia every night. Bedroom was spotless as usual, bedding changed weekly and towels every 3 days or longer if you wanted to help save the planet with Hotel Neos’s sustainable program, and to be honest who changes their towels that frequently at home? The breakfasts were varied, you can choose anything or everything! The coffee was excellent and no limit to how many cups you had! I would definitely recommend staying at Hotel Neos and we will be booking again for next year.

We have just returned home after spending 22 fabulous days at Neos. All Covid precautions were in place with stipulation of mask wearing when inside the hotel, plenty of hand sanitiser stations around the pool, terrace and reception. Breakfast was as good as ever, this time we were socially distanced in the dining room where our order was taken and then delivered to our table. We felt very safe in and around the hotel and were made welcome with all the necessary precautions in place. In the evenings there was plenty of tables to socially distance and still feel and experience the wonderful atmosphere of the hotel. Will definitely be back next year.

We spent a week here, and it was one of the best hotel experiences I've ever had-- Michael, Cornelia and Jo are wonderful and very welcoming. This is probably the cleanest hotel I've ever been in! We were there during Covid measures, and they made sure everyone knew where you needed to wear a mask, they were taking precautions in line with the government, but it was not overwhelming. The rooms are comfortable, there's a nice balcony with each room, and it was the relaxing vacation we needed after lockdown. It's only a 5-10 minute walk to the beach, and as it is not in the absolute center of the restaurants, it's a very quiet hotel too. Breakfast is great as well! I highly recommend this hotel!

Had a brilliant stay at this hotel in Matala. It's about 5-10 minutes walk from the town centre and very convenient for the beach. The pool is great and the breakfast too. Our room had a little balcony which was ideal for cooling off in the evening. There was also decent air conditioning if needed. Beds were comfy. Overall, very good value for money, and a very friendly team running things. During these difficult times, the hotel has put in place all the relevant Covid-19 safety measures - there are numerous handing washing stations in strategic locations, as well as plexiglass erected at reception and the breakfast bar. Good work Hotel Neos! Many thanks for a nice stay Michael, Cornelia and Jo. Hope to stay again sometime.

We had a fantastic stay here, would certainly recommend. Everything was great - clean and comfortable rooms, modern bathrooms, decent sized pool, short walk to the town, and a substantial continental style buffet breakfast. The hotel had a lovely homely feel with character and a relaxed atmosphere. The owners Michael and Cornelia were friendly, welcoming, helpful and even honoured our request for two adjacent rooms for our party. Would absolutely stay again.
