Stayed 4 nights at Matahari. It was a standard sort of room, nothing special. The bathroom was unfortunately very damp and did not seem to have any ventilation at all. Because of this, the walls in the shower were miscoloured and looked a bit nasty. The shower had only cold water but that was okay since it was very warm.... More

Had a nice meal & coffee here until the bill came .. The price had changed ! It was not acceptable as the price quoted was not on the menu for what we had , the man then halved our bill to which we had to accept . Very nice calamari snack for 2 ..just wouldn't pay £20 for it... More

We landed from the boat and a hotel agent offered to show us this place. We took a horse carriage here for $10 USD for 3 ppl. Worth it in the blazing sun and with luggage. Basic bungalows, showers are outdoors attached to bungalow, breakfast is so-so, but the view is spectacular! Direct access to the beach. We negotiated prices... More

This resort is really a low budget place to stay. We stay 8 nights and 4 of them we had no cold water, which meant no water to flush the toilet. In saying that, they fixed the problem every time we asked. The steps and surrounding tiles around the restaurant and swim up bar were very slippery. A couple of... More

Stayed for 2 weeks in July and loved the place. The food in the restaurant is really good; a lot of options also for a vegetarian like myself. The staff is super friendly and the ocean bright blue and only a few meters away. They offer a bunch of different room options, we picked a budget alternative and found it... More

Stayed at matahari for 2weeks. The breakfast was ok but the rest was top notch. Clean rooms, super friendly staff and lime/lemon juice to die for. The prices are lower than the neighbouring resorts and owned by three siblings native to the island. Matahari sits on the chilled out side of the island faceing the sunset and if you care... More
