“We went for a wedding, but want to go back”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

A friend was getting married in Mati, which is a small town on the coast - there are a few restaurants, a couple of hotels and a couple of bars - enough for a few days away and much more relaxed than Athens itself. The hotel is good - very helpful staff, a nice pool area, a few steps away from the tavernas and the beach. Rooms were clean and well equipped, all with a terrace and a nice clean modern bathroom. Our terrace, being north facing, did not get any sun, but had a good view of the harbour.

My only gripe is with the keys, which are used via some magnetic system, to control the electricity and air con in the room - this means when you leave the air con turns off and any electrical items you have plugged in stop charging - without air con the rooms can be a bit stuffy when you return.

Arrived at this hotel expecting it to be close to the airport. It took us 30minutes to there by taxi costing 45Euro. Since this was an overnight stay, we ended paying 90Euro transportation.

When we arrived, we were given a room on the second floor. Upon getting to our room, we found that the room had not been cleaned, the bed was unmade and the bathroom dirty. The receptionist promptly gave us another room, saying someone had made a mistake.

The rooms themselves are nothing to talk home about. The furniture is quite old and cheap.

All in all, although this hotel would probably be well suited for those seeking a quiet time by the beach, I would not recommend it for short stays for persons in transit.

You could not meet friendlier or more helpful people than the staff at Cabo Verde. The hotel looks like it is still fairly new compared to the surrounding hotels and the rooms were modern, clean and functional. The pool is small but again clean and pool bar staff were friendly. Breakfast was simple continental selection but reasonable and did the job. That's the good...

Now the bad...
The area of Mati is not somewhere we will return to. Graffiti, litter and a sad looking place with little to offer outside the hotel.
We ate at the nearby hotel a few time Mati Resort I think and the food and service were great but the hotel looked old.

If you HAVE to stay in Mati then this is your best option

One night stay for an airport connection. Rooms are clean and larger than normal with good size bathroom however a nice tiled shower would have been better than a grotty tub and shower curtain. Usual uncomfortable Greek beds so get some pillows to make your own mattress. Friendly staff. Nice pool except it closes at 6:00, just before we arrived. Average breakfast with no cut up fresh fruit, eggs, bacon or grilled tomatoes. Machine cappuccinos. Poor beach area with rocks underfoot in the water. Place has the look and feel of an office tower. A few lackluster tavernas/ in the area. Fine for a night or two.

While on a return trip from some island hopping we had booked Cabo Verde for an overnight stay before flying back home. We thought the location would be nice along the beach while still fairly close to the airport and port of rafina. Howeve the surroundings of the hotel was very disappointing and without much activity. The hotel bar and restaurant were huge disappointments, even though one should think the 4 stars would guarantee some. The restaurant had 4-5 main dishes on the menu, only one of which was available.
The rooms, breakfast and the service of the front desk were fantastic though!
