pretty quiet and well located hotel. forget good greek food: same poor choice everyday. forget daily room service and bathroom comforts: clean towels once in a week. forget nice welcome and tolerance: management do not understand what hospitality is. really a pity such a structure is not improved by a reasonably professional staff.

Very harsh welcome. The owner knocking at the door inviting us to leave the room. The reservation by Expedia already charged on my credit card was not received by the Hotel. They refused to check by phone with Expedia saying that my evidence was not their problem. I had to call myself and check thair problem. The hotel eventually called...

We picked Matala Bay due to the good reviews and price for half board. The rooms themselves were very nice and clean and well equipped and included safe, fridg, tv and a/c included. Staff was nice and friendly. They spoke English and German and maybe more. The shower was bad due to some weird unusable shower curtain. If they would...

My partner and I have recently returned from a holiday in Crete where we stayed at the Matala Bay Hotel on a half board basis. This is a simple hotel, but is excellent value for money. The hotel is extremely clean and the rooms are comfortable. The management and staff are very friendly and very helpful. The food is fairly...
