We stayed here for 2 nights on a half-board basis when we were visiting the local music festival. The location was excellent - only a few minute's walk from the town centre and beach. No complaints about the room or the food, which was more than adequate and quite varied. There was a little problem with the air conditioner, but... More

Lovely cool environment, pool, small bar. Well within walking distance of town and beach. Rooms spotless and quite large with good-sized balcony. Breakfast was included and it was really good - eggs, cereals etc. Staff were friendly and helpful.

We stayed in Matala in May 2016 which was our 3rd visit in 4 years time. Matala Bay is perfectly Iocated. The hotel is quiet but still it is only a 10 minute walk from the very picturesque Matala village with very nice restaurants, shops and kind people all around. The hotel is relatively simple but that gives it a... More

This was below average at best. However, I think standards in Matala are very low so this could be one of the best in that town. It's an interesting place to stop and take photos, but I would not recommend spending the night, especially at this hotel. The room needed repair/rehab but at least was clean. The people at the...
