“An excellent choice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

Located 2 minutes from the beach, this family run hotel is really an excellent choice: the pool is fine, the pool bar really nice and the hotel staff is friendly and welcoming. Our room (2 adults, a child) was nice, perfectly clean, comfortable, and the bathroom small but nice.
Resting at the pool during the day was really relaxing, and the choice of music at the pool bar perfect.
Breakfast comprehends very good local cakes. Obviously, we'll go back again.

We stayed at this hotel 15years ago and are delighted that we chose it again this year. A family run hotel that puts its guests first. All staff were friendly and helpful. Although the rooms and balconys are not large they are adequate and very clean and comfortable. The hotel is situated back from the main road and is a cool and quiet retreat from the main strip of restaurants. We will definately stay here again.

If you are looking for a small, Family-owned hotel with warm staff & great people, then you found your place. Yes rooms are not huge and the hotel is simple, but that's the beauty of it. You feel at home and it's very very clean. Greek Papa is always here to great you, or advise you, or to take you to some beautiful traditional places. If you are traveling alone, you will feel safe there.
At night it's quiet and windy, so your sleep quality is optimal.

Beach & Promenade are only two minutes walk away and there are plenty of available exciting excursions.

I will definitely return there.

Have fun & enjoy your stay!!!

Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay on Santorini. Family owned and run hotel who were the most gracious, friendly and helpful hosts you could ask for. They organised hire cars for us, tours and the father took groups of guests out to traditional Greek dinners, sunset dinners etc. Rooms are spotless, the pool area is great, lovely breakfasts in the morning by the pool. The kids and I didn't want to leave the place. Wouldn't recommend anywhere else to stay on Santorini.

We stayed at the hotel in June this year. The hotel is lovely and nice little oasis set back from the road a few minutes walk to the main strip of restaurants. The Hotel is very clean through out and all the staff and owners are really nice people and so friendly. There was never any problem to get loungers around the pool and a nice mix of sun and plenty of shade. I can't really think of any faults of the hotel for the price range that its in and if we visited Santorini again I wouldn't stay anywhere else. I also had an accident on a boat whilst there and they kindly drove me to the Hospital and then to the pharmacy afterwards.

Thanks to Athina and Athina for the great bar service and their lovely company!

This must be the friendliest hotel we have visited. The owners were lovely and very helpful. When you arrive you are greeted by one of their dogs (both of them are strays that they have rescued) and especially if you have children that helps to break the ice. They organised all of our trips and excursions and they were all really good and reasonably priced. When we did our sailing and swimming trip the hotel even provided us with spare towels. When we arrived at the island we immediately hired and car and drove to the hotel - don't do that! The hotel will pick you up from the port or airport and deliver you back again. You can easily hire a car or moped from several places close to the hotel (like 30 sec walk). The rooms were all a good size and very clean. Each one has a balcony and they feel very relaxing after a long day at the beach, which is only a 2 min walk from the hotel. Kamari beach must be one of the best we went to. Lots of shops, lots of restaurants and bars, and a really nice beach to relax on. The pool is also great, a haven from the hustle and bustle. There is a pool bar and the attendant is also very friendly and nice. Everyone in this hotel seemed to be having a lot of fun.

After having stayed at Hotel Matina three times in 2009, 2011 and 2013 I felt it was time to put in a review. The hotel is very well maintained, very clean and very friendly to its guests. The location is superb, being within walking distance to Kamari Beach, with its restaurants, bars and shops. Fira is accessible from the bus stop, only a few hundred meters down the road. The pool is great, especially for younger children, as it is not too deep. The pool area is very attractive, and supported by a pool bar serviced by some of the friendliest staff I have ever encountered in a hotel. The rooms are nice and clean, and the beds are really comfortable. The breakfast buffet is good, although some might find it a bit too simple. The owner goes out of his way to make sure you enjoy your stay, and is truly a great host. This hotel is both suited for couples and families.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms do not have balconies. Make sure to request this, as it makes it easier to dry wet...
