We Traveled to Matala because of severe weather in Chania area, so we chased the sun and ended up looking for a new place to stay. Most welcoming reception and could not have made us feel more special. Rooms are modern and newly decorated, breakfast included and a great pool. If you’re looking for a great place to relax and explore the southern side of Crete then this is just the place. Great value
We stayed for 4 nights at this hotel, in one threebed room and one double. The hotel is located a bit outside Matala center and beach but it was only a few minutes by car. The hotel is nothing special but okey. The breakfast is good except for the coffee (very weak) but we brought our own Nescafé so we managed in that way. The place is clean and the pool is good. The wi-fi did not work in our rooms, and also in the restaurant/poolarea the signal is weak and it works poorly. This place is ok but I will try another place if I return to Matala.
This is the third time, we came here ,very frendly people , the rooms are good, mostly with a very nice view! Every day cleaning! Lovely swimmingpool. The restaurant is very good, fresh, local stuff! You can walk in 25 minutes tot the beautiful city of Matala ! Ik can recomment it! We wil be back here!
Family run hotel clean comfortable room with a big sunny terrace and continental breakfast to start the day off. I would say the only problem being the hotel is a good 25 min walk to a nice beach and good restaurants in a pretty village.
Stayed here for 5 days last week. A return visit. Lovely place. Rooms spotless with nice linen. Just outside Matala so s car would be advised. Lovely quiet pool area and a decent buffet breakfast. Would recommend.
we stayed here whilst touring crete and visiting matala. liked it so much we extended our stay. great room.very good air con and good shower for Greece. lovely position just outside town,you need a car to get to matala or a 20 min walk but we like that because it was so lovely and quiet. simple buffet breakfast,and we had a home cooked dinner by the owner one night.simple but lovely food. excellent value,50 euros a night including breakfast.9 euros per head for dinner.owner marina delightful.would recommend
This is a simple, family-run hotel. No frills, but clean, comfortable and friendly. Seems to attract couples with an interest in history, beaches and exploring southern Crete. Breakfasts are good (excellent home-made honey, marmalade and yoghurt!!!), evening meals are basic but adequate (certainly not 'disgusting' as one reviewer claims!). About 15 minutes walk from the beach for a slow walker like myself. Plenty of history in the area and cheapish car hire down the road. I would not recommend for anyone with substantial mobility issues because of the steep slope leading to the hotel
My family and I have been there from the 18th of June to the 25th. Very big pool we had good coctals at the pool bar.The room was big,clean and it had also a big balcony.The braekfast was good and it was buffet.The food was very good traditional fresh food.The owners and the staff was really friendly.Matala was a piridise.Sure we are going to go there for more days.
As we walked into the lobby we were hit by a horrible sewer smell. Luckily, our room didn't smell but the smell did find it's way to the pool area where we found it impossible to enjoy the pool because of it. When we got to our room we noticed hundreds of small dead bugs in the corners and under the bed. We told the owner who went up to our room and then came back a few minutes later and said she swept a little but the maid would clean it up tomorrow. When we went back up, there were still bugs under the bed. We had to keep our cooler up against the door to keep it from banging all night with the wind. The next morning, the dining area still smelled foul and the food wasn't much better. To top it off, they wanted to charge us a higher room rate than we had booked. If you're going to Matala, stay in the town close to the beach and great little tavernas. This hotel is NOT within easy walking distance to Matala as advertised...actually nothing is as advertised. Avoid this place!…
The hotel lies 800 metres away from the main Matala beach (caves), 1200 metres from Komo Beach and 1300 metres from magnificent Kokkino Ammos (Red Beach) - its a good point for an active holiday. If you are lazy it's not for you. On the other hand, the hotel is small and quiet - perfect silence at night! Rooms have nice view, are cleaned almost everyday. Time for bad points. There's no garden (as description says), just several trees and bushes, you've got access to twelve square meters of lawn close to the swimming pool. Swimming pool is rather small, stinks like bathroom cleaner. It's difficult to take a break - wasps are constantly flying in the pool area (I suppose the hotel owners don't mind it). Breakfast is the same all the time - bread, cheese, low quality ham, jam, juice, tea, coffee-like liquid; no vegetables; self-service. Dinner - 3 course; hotel owners and their family serve meals. Portions are very small and are simply d i s g u s t i n g: way overbolied vegetables, almost every dish has tomato-like sause added. It doesn't even taste like ketchup. Very limited variety during our 10 days stay. You have to pay for drinks, even water. 1 bottle costs 2 euros. It is possible to order something else form the menu (I was on package tour: HB, breakfast and dinner included) but they have ridiculously high prices (i.e. choriatiki salad - 5 euro, while in the best Matala tavernas you get twice much and ten times more delicious for 3 to 4 euros) We were forced to visit tavernas in Matala or Pitsidia. The hotel staff is terrible. It's not friendly family-run hotel. On those days when they serve a salad for dinner olive oil and vinegar are on tables but once you finish a salad hotel owner (fat chap that doesn' t look like a Greek) collects oil and vinegar from the tables. He constantly asks: "want something to drink?". This was my 5th visit to Greece and I've always been overwhelmed by greek hospitality and incredibly delicious cuisine. Melissa owners shouldn't run a hotel cause they simply ruin Greek cooking and culture.…
