The hotel is lovely and clean and very spacious with a nice pool and beauty view at the restaurant.

We stayed in the bungalow which was very spacious.

The reception staff were very friendly. However the staff in the restaurant and spa could be a little abrupt sometimes but I think this was mainly due to a language barrier!

The food in the restaurant was average but it is concient after a day of diving to eat at your own hotel. We actually had booked to dive with a centre down the road so disnt use the dive centre on site. However this looked good.

I have not been diving before, and was very nervous but excited to try it. My diving instructor was great, very patient and understanding, so when it came time to move from practising in the Poole to the open water, I felt safe and supported.
What an adventure!
The resort is cozy and beautiful, the staff is very friendly, and the food was great!
I had taken one of the special packages offered through the web page, which was all inclusive, pick-up and drop-off (with some sigh-seeing included), room, food, introduction to diving, and two open water dives, the coral garden and the famous ship wreck.
I can highly recommend the place!

It is a shame that this seems quite a nice place until you see the bit at the very sea front which is decaying and really needs proper attention not just a lick of paint over the already peeling paint and crumbling concrete.

The menu is excellent and food quality good. Prices sensible and staff very pleasant. Id recommend it for food 100%.

Room Tip: Ask at reception. Away from main road is best.

Thank you for your feedback. And yes, we will do some improvements asap at the walls at the beach.The workers will do soon.
After rainy season it is always horrable if you are sooooo close to the beach like us.
Thanks for the feeback about our food. Our TEAM in the kitchen is very happy about that. Same like myself.
Would be great to welcome you again. Warm greetings Suci

The people of Matahari (which by the way means sunshine!) are really great. They make your stay ever so comfortable. I already stayed here three times already for diving. The location is perfect for that- right on the seashore. In front of Matahari there's a wonderful coral garden. 250 meters to the right there's a beautiful drop off (right down to over 60 meters!). And 250 meters to your left there's the USS Liberty, a 130 meters long ship wreck at a very reasonable depth (down to 30 meters max.). The early morning dives and the night dives on the Liberty are amazing....! The rooms at Matahari are good and clean. The included breakfast is good enough. Prices are here are great. I highly recommend this hotel/resort.

Room Tip: The standard rooms are kinda small. The superior rooms are excellent!
