Lovely hotel close to the beach and restaurants
We always stop at this hotel when we are in matala.Very friendly staff that speak good English.There is a lift to all floors.Best bathrooms in Crete with modern shower cubicles.Rooms cleaned everyday and great view of sea and caves from the balcony.Double glazed patio doors onto the balcony that keep out any road no ice.Great buffet breakfast with a good selection of food.The only thing I can think of to improve this hotel is a kettle and tea and coffee making facilities and a t.v.

Pleasant location in Matala. If you are fortunate and have a room on the second or third floor you will have a wonderful view on Matala's characteristic rock formation. We liked the terrace for breakfast. Staff was friendly and helpful. Pleasant cost/quality ratio.

OK, but a little worn around the edges. Wifi is very spotty. Some minor things like lunens being a bit old, loose wall outlets, but no major issues. Good location.

Das positive zuerst. Super Lage zum Strand und den Höhlen sowie der Stadt. Leider wahnsinnig hellhörige Zimmer. Betten knüppelhart, schmal und kurz. Sehr lieblos. Klimaanlage Vorhaben jedoch zu laut zum schlafen.
