Greece at its best.
Typical Greek hotel, a little dated but very pleasant staff, the hotel really suited the location, we had fantastic views of the beach and caves. The cost of the holiday is value second to none. I loved it there and I'll definitely be returning.

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.
