“Very rude owner”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

We booked a studio for one night only and did not expect much. I am used to this class category hotel in mykonos having used them for the last 30 years. The good thing is the room size and the pool area. However I think that room smelling of mould in the summer months should not be rented!

There was an issue with port transfer, I have emailed owner and did not get a reply so I called twice and was promised a pick up, this never happened however we were told a lie that the driver was there and left because of ferry delay, the delay was 10 minutes and every other hotel waited their guest. In Greece they know in the harbour when the arrival time is. So what they told us is unacceptable, they also accused us of having not informed them of the delay from the boat, by calling them !!!

The Lady owner, we were later told she has a very bad reputation in the island, To us she was simply rude and not welcoming. We moved the following day to a much better hotel in the area

Room Tip: high floor room with sea view are not worth the extra money. The rent bike places in the area are ov...

Nice people, nice place and although its away from the partying, its close enough to the food and culture on offer. The staff are excellent. The rooms are fantastic. The view is splendid! The best hotel I have stayed in while at Mykonos!

Friendly owners, free transfer, spacious rooms, not too clean but hey it's a cheap little pension :) really nice pool and not too far from the town. With a scooter it was a 5 minutes drive. Overall it was a very nice stay and the owners were friendly and available when we needed.

We booked for 3 nights through "booking.com". The most expensive fare in our entire trip to Cyclades.
The room was supposed to overlook the pool and we specifically asked for twin beds.
When we arrived at the hotel, our room overlooked the parking lot and the busy road, and we had a queen size bed. We went to the reception to complain, and were (very aggressively) replied that "the hotel was full and there was no alternative room for us".
No need to say we left and found a friendlier place to stay!

Overall, Pension Matina wasn't bad for the price and location. It was of walking distance to Mykonos Town, and the beach. The front desk wasn't too friendly or helpful however which is why I rated this hotel a 3/5.
The pool is absolutely wonderful, and the rooms are spacious. There is a kitchen which comes in handy. Overall, I would come back to Pension Matina.
Also the airport/ferry transportation is great, because its free and convenient!

Stayed for 4 nights and had a lovely time here. The pool area is relaxing and the room clean with a great view over Mykonos town. If you don't hire a bike or some sort of vehicle the walk up and down the hill is very tiring. We were also woken up in the early hours of the morning by drunken party-goers on a couple of nights, but this is no fault of the hotel! It was a pleasant stay if you're happy to stay a little out of town.
