Love this place. You have great breakfast. Beautiful wish. Wifi, air conditioner in the room. This year we were in a new room on the 2 floor with new strong shower. Clean beds. Also you have a bed for child for free. Big space in the lobby.television in the room. But the most I portent that you have a possibility to walk around because you already situated in the center of matala. Very happy to stay here and come back again.

The Zafiria hotel, large and well located in the middle of amazing Matala. Catering to returning generations of visitors and friends, the Zafiria has long been positioned as the center of fine hospitality in Matala. One only need to witness the daily parade of repeaters as they stroll through the reception. All of this has been created by the remarkable smile, helpfulness and unstoppably friendly attitude of the hotel manager, Dionnissi. While is is true that the hotel is wanting some renovation, it is indeed receiving it, on an annual basis it appears. What Zafiria has though, in spades, is hospitality, which indeed seems to trump a dark reception area, when Dionnissi lights it up with personality. Contrary to another review, my repeated experience is also that the large cleaning staff keep the entire building very, very clean. The pool area, is also a wonderful highlight. When in Matala, wanting old style help and hospitality? Check out Dionissi and the Zafiria team. You will Not be disappointed.

Really disappointing bar. The tropical smoothie menu looked enticing enough but the drinks were actually laced with sugar. I think I lost a tooth. Also, the boiled egg was overpriced and the interior lacked air conditioning. Poor indeed!

Very old hotel in an outstanding location, downtown Matala, whereas in the past was the hurt of the hippie community. Desperate needs renovation. Not very clean as well. I think it is open even in wintertime.

It is a "only" two stars hotel. It is near the sea (max. 100 m), it has its own swimming pool and is very, really very clean. I would add 1 star. Continental breakfasts are rich and can be enjoyed on the hotel's terrace.
