We spend three weeks in September in Dimitris´ in Matala and it was a nice experience for all of us. We booked for two rooms - one was in the house nearby the breakfast premisses and the nice swimming pool, the rooms are on the second floor (a little bit higher stairs - no elevator), the other in the building only one minute walk distant, with rooms also on the ground floor with a charming veranda. Our rooms were not five stars but corresponding with the price we had chosen - big enough for two and every day cleaned. If You are not in a honeymoon trip, book for a room with two separate beds as the double bed is not wide enough and every move next to You will awake You. All offered equipmets were functional - just a little bit weak shower. Only a couple of wire hangers in the wardrobe. Pack the hangers in Your suitcase as well as drying line, there is no facility for drying Your swimming costume and towel used at the sea.
Breakfast in a form of buffet is sufficient and nobody will limit Your appetite and hunger - good coffee or tea, outstanding greek bread and feta cheese, pastry, ham, eggs, butter, jam, excellent yoghurt, honey, fruits ... The stuff - mother and her doughter and the aunt are friendly and always willing to meet Your needs and wishes - our thanks to all of them!
The swimming pool at the breakfast premisses is 1st class - spacious and clean, surrounded by a lot of couchettes. The nearest Matala beach is reaaly just a stones´
throw away, but alwas crowded. We decided for the nearby beach Komos - much bigger (1 km long) without any beach facilities but possible to swim or sunbathe without swim suit. In Matala there are many taverns with delicious dishes. We realy enjoyed our stay.
