Stayed here for 5 days last week. A return visit. Lovely place. Rooms spotless with nice linen. Just outside Matala so s car would be advised. Lovely quiet pool area and a decent buffet breakfast. Would recommend.

This is a simple, family-run hotel. No frills, but clean, comfortable and friendly. Seems to attract couples with an interest in history, beaches and exploring southern Crete. Breakfasts are good (excellent home-made honey, marmalade and yoghurt!!!), evening meals are basic but adequate (certainly not 'disgusting' as one reviewer claims!). About 15 minutes walk from the beach for a slow walker... More

The hotel lies 800 metres away from the main Matala beach (caves), 1200 metres from Komo Beach and 1300 metres from magnificent Kokkino Ammos (Red Beach) - its a good point for an active holiday. If you are lazy it's not for you. On the other hand, the hotel is small and quiet - perfect silence at night! Rooms have... More
