Great value for money, not a new hotel but it was right on the beach, with a balcony and really very clean, well-kept rooms. read hotel review

Like others before me a detailed described, the hotel is not very big, not very new and the highlight really the staff. Rooms relatively worn, but because of the whole day hard cleaning staff always in acceptable condition. Breakfast was somewhat one-sided, daily bread, cookies, sometimes also cakes, always the same sausage (a sort of) and always the same cheese, but often supplemented with fresh fruit, olives. And the fine yogurt with honeypot next to it. We had except for german or austrians and greeks in the hotel. We were very satisfied, as mentioned especially with the always friendly and ... helpful staff. Town, beach and restaurants literally on the doorstep and there is no disturbing noise at night. We will be back! read hotel review

    Rooms are rather small, but sufficient, because we were only for sleeping there. No tv, which didn't was missing... Otherwise that you need: shower, small balcony for the cigarette in front of the sleep. Furniture its best years have passed, is however intact and clean. If possible room at the back book, the front of the hotel is to the street.

    We only booked with breakfast and were content thereby. There is a good bakery in the town, since we got in addition often a tyropita or spinatpita ☺

    The pool was always very clean, the pool bar could have been a little more open may, but due to the late time of year, not worth it. We still got everything we wanted, from the bar brought. Well maintained chairs and umbrellas around the pool.

    The beautiful pebble beach is only a 3 minutes, to Heraklion we needed about 80 minutes by car, many other points of interest nearby (10-30 kilometer) and alone the drive there by beautiful landscapes and village is well worth it!

It is a rather smaller hotel, three floors. The rooms are simply and small, nothing for demanding holidayers. The furnishing is already quite worn. No tv, no hair dryer. We have the hotel room only for sleeping used, were mostly traveling during the day, at the beach or by the pool. The cleanliness would we as good state, it is open daily from very friendly staff cleaned. The breakfast is ok, also here: rather simply, little alternation, but delicious. You have to be aware, that it is precisely in order to a 2 star hotel is, so don't set you ... expectations too high should be available. The value for money we would as good. Staff very pleasant and helpful. read hotel review

    Nice, friendly, dedicated staff. German knowledge available. The cleaning staff was very pleasant and friendly. On the first day we have the room changed, since the water in the shower didn't work. This transfer also worked out easily.

    There is no animation in the hotel. The pool of the hotel is clean, chairs and sunscreens are available. The beach is clean, the water clear and in september still optimal warm for swimming. Umbrellas and beach chairs at a charge usable.

    The gravel-sand -beach is directly easily reachable on foot. In Matala itself there are a lot of dining establishments, some of which very nice (at the sea) are located. Several times in the week gave it in different places live music. There is the possibility planned trips something to do. We have a tour to samaria gorge done, highly recommended.

Location and service were spick-and-span. Since we had a rental car we were not reliant on public transport. In the hotel we only had breakfast. This was so far okay. Now and then a few fruits, I missed. The rooms were rather small and appropriately equipped. Since we were only for sleeping anyway, as it was more than enough. The rooms were cleaned daily and every two days we got fresh Terry towels two. We would stay there again! read hotel review

The hotel is located directly at the beginning of the shopping street in Matala. The rooms facing the street are therefore rather noisy ( traffic noise and operational). The rooms facing the pool are so much better located. The pool is nice and quiet in a small backyard. The rooms are rather small and functional - but was more than adequate for a beach holiday. The hotel staff is friendly and speak English. Overall the hotel is a bit older, but ok. We had no complaints about cleanliness and service. The breakfast buffets ( white bread, cheese, sausage, eggs, jam ..., honey, yoghurt, juice, coffee). Tea or other drinks could be ordered at the bar. Freshly squeezed orange juice or other supplements for breakfast, this admittedly against payment, possible. The hotel is suitable for a beach holiday overall. Beach, grocery stores, shops and restaurants are all within the immediate vicinity. A car is essential but for excursions. read hotel review

Except for the many mosquitoes in the night we had no complaints, we enjoyed the breakfast, thanks plentiful yogurt with honey, always tasted very good. During the evening and night, depending on, there was the last 1/2 liter Cretan red wine on the terrace of the hotel. We will definitely go back. Barbara and Heinz, Austria read hotel review
