Dear Bianca, thank you very much for booking our hotel Neos Matala for your short stay in Matala. We are happy you enjoy the most in the hotel. What we don´t understand is that you didn´t find any bath products. In all of our rooms you find - under the make-up mirror - a small container. In this you will find soap, shower gel, sewing things, shoehorn and a shoe cleaning set. Maybe you just didn´t see it. It may be that there was a smell in the bathroom. Some of the houses in our area are not yet connected to the municipal sewage network, unlike us. If it is pumped out in these houses, it can come to us also smell, but extremely seldom this happens. But normally this smell is away after 5 or 10 minutes. The internet works in all public areas and also reception and pool. Normally you must have a perfect connection also in your room, perhaps it was a problem with your mobile or really in this moment with the connection. We checked it direct after your review and it works perfect, in and outside in your room. Perhaps we see us one day again and we can show you the facilities for the bathroom and look together for the WIFI. Have a nice summer. Many greetings from Team Neos Matala

Dear Javier, thank you for your review and your open words. We try to make every time our best for the guests, but trust me also us happens a lot of things or mistakes and than nobody feel "perfect". Our endeavor is to do our part for the guests so everybody have nice holidays. This is absolute not possible every time. Only for one point we really say no this is not correct: In our hotel nothing is strict. We make perhaps our job in this way - only so we can run the hotel with 18 rooms, pool, breakfast, bar and our big garden with 3 persons - but the guests have sure no restrictions, only the breakfast time. And sometimes I like icecream in the winter and a cheese-fondue in the summer, this fit perfect together. Thank you for being guests in our place. Have a good summer in Spain. Many greetings Cornelia, Jo and Michael

Hallo Frau / Herr Korb, danke für Ihr Interesse an unserem Hotel. Vom Flughafen Heraklion nach Matala sind es etwa 70 km. Sie haben beide Alternativen, sowohl per Mietwagen, als auch per Taxi. Die Preise des Mietwagens kann man so natürlich nicht genau beziffern, da sich diese nach der Mietdauer und dem Wagentyp richten. Der Taxitransfer liegt bei 65 EURO für den Wagen (bis 4 Personen). Bei weiteren Fragen stehen wir gerne zur Verfügung, möglichst unter unserer e- mail, welche auf unserer Homepage zu ersehen ist. Viele Grüße aus Matala Cornelia Ohe und Michael Birkenmayer

"ask for a room with a slightly larger bathroom, they can be quite small"
"All the rooms have some A/C noise even if you turn yours off, as we did - after a night you get used to it."
"We would recommend looking at the room layouts and choose the one that works for you."
"All rooms have security from the outside and a free safe inside so no problems, plus the owners are always present to check everywhere. All rooms have a good balcony and a garden view."
"On the first floor: very easy access from the street to the room through balcony door, you have to accept the risks."
$52 - $89 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
