The appartments are way off from the hotel. Maybee 1-2 Miles.. why par for the Beach accessability when u need to drive there? The appartment has only one bathroom, not 2. No wahing mashine. No pool. No externa lights. No reading lamps in bedroom. The paint is peeling off, poor build quility and dangerous appliances.

I was left a little disappointed, our bed was really hard and you could feel the springs, our air-conditioning wasn't cold, when reported to the owners of the hotel, they were less than friendly. The pool was really good and the breakfast was excellent, the outdoor barman was so friendly, and breakfast staff were as well. Would I stay again, no.

We had a wonderful time staying 5 nights in the villa owned by the hotel and then 2 nights in the hotel itself. All the staff were friendly the hotel and villa were clean and the food at the hotel including breakfast and evening meal was absolutely wonderful. Really fresh home cooked authentic Greek food with lots of fruit, salad and vegetables.

Very good breakfast. Welcoming host Yannis. Very good location. Red beach and Kommos beach not far. On a lazy day local beach is only 5 minutes walk away which is full of different bars, restaurants, tavernas. Even on a lazier day hotel is equipped with swimming pool which is a lovely place to relax. Very good quality free wifi compared to the places we stayed in the past. Overall, excellent value for money.

They overbook then place you wherever they find a place in the village. Ended up in a totally different room with giant holes in the bathroom and very disgusting room. Complained and was changed to another building (looked like an abandoned hotel from last century) with single beds like kids (while we ordered couples room and king bed), very old bathroom and not cleaned plus the climatisation was from last century. When we saw it was barely working, we checked outside: ventilation was rusty, full of molds/mushrooms. Extremely unsafe! We left immediately and they started to be EXTREMELY nasty and rude, refusing to refund us. Will go to court. Believe me, avoid at all costs because you might very well be treated the same; I've never been treated like this ever and I traveled around the world. Real shame

Caution to this comment! All our hotel staff have been asked if they recognize the specific customers and they all denied it. This comment is a scam. Probably from a competing hotel. Pay attention! Matala Bay Manager

Very nice hotel only few minutes far from the Matala beach and the center. We had booked with breakfast included who was definitely worth it. Staff from the reception and the restaurant very helpful and kind. Every Wednesday they had live music who we enjoyed with very delicious cocktails.

We booked and were accommodated in the Matala Bay Annex Building Rental Rooms, which is located right across from the Matala Bay Hotel. A very good breakfast and dinner were served in the main building and we could use all the facilities of the hotel. Free parking. Very nice pool. The rooms are clean, have a refrigerator, air conditioning, a balcony and in some rooms a small kitchen. the furniture is a little older, but well maintained. I recommend the Annex Building, which is a little cheaper, and a the Hotel to, which is nicely renovated and has a modern look.

We stayed 2 nights in an enormous room on the top floor, with a big terrace with view on the mountains. Nothing to say: the room is simple, but comfortable and equipped with all the necessary services. We also enjoyed the breakfast along the hotel swimming pool and the possibility to use the hotel parking area. The hotel is 5 minutes walking from the beach and the city centre. Highly recommended, I will certainly consider booking it again,

There must be some new renovated rooms in the hotel, but we got some tiny old room with a loud and old fridge. The bathroom was even worse: Old, broken and dirty walls, small shower and a ventilation "system" where you can easily follow the conversation in the neighbour rooms.
