These apartments are very near the beach and just a 5 minute stroll to the main street. Lovely modern apartments with comfy beds and the owners have really tried to make sure you have everything you need for a good holiday. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and any minor complaints were dealt with quickly. Very clean and well maintained. You have the choice of 2 pools, 2 snack bars and a restaurant. We only ate there once as we prefer to wander out at night, but meal was very nice.
Pefkos is a lovely resort - no larger louts or people trying to sell you things and no aggressive marketing of their bars and restaurants. The resort isn't huge but still enough places to eat somewhere different every night for 2 weeks. Our favourite eateries were the Chinese, Philosophia above the beach, George's and the lovely restaurant just as you are entering the main beach. Perks by night is a great bar for entertainment - there was a band, or a comedian or a tribute act on most nights at 10 o'clock and the atmosphere was great! Enjoyed the holiday so much we are going back for 2 weeks this June. This time staying at the Stella

This was our second visit to Pefkos and our first to the Matina and we enjoyed every minute of it from start to finish,our only gripe was the WIFI .To access the wifi you had to go to the bar to request a slip of paper with a code on it which only lasted one hour ,this became frustrating as our children just wanted to quickly access facebook or whatever then jump back in the pool but one of the barmen got slightly annoyed saying your only allowed one a day ,everywhere else restaurants and bars it was free with no hassle.
The pool area was lovely with lots of beds and parasols and very clean .
The room was ok,the cleaner emptied the bin every day other than sunday i think ,the sheets were only changed once a week and the towels every 3 days which didn't impress us ,we got the usual amount of ants in the room that you get in Greece,all i do when i get there is spray the door frames with ant killer /raid and it solves the problem for the entirety of your holiday.
Restaurants around Pefkos were plentiful, good quality and affordable,you could eat in a different place every night.
The beach is just a few minute walk from the hotel and the view is very picturesque,the sea is lovely and warm once your in,just mind your toes for the first few metres as you walk into the sea as it is pebbly in areas .We went to Lee's beach bar for lunch quite a few times which was again good and affordable .
We went to the water park one day which was really good,the bus stop for this is just by the doorway of Pefkos by night and is free ,we went on the wednesday which is transfer day and it is much quieter than weekends.
Nothing else to say other than Pefkos is a lovely place and i would return again,if the Wifi was freely accessible without the need for a code each time i would also return to the matina .

Dear paulwiki,

Many thanks for taking the time to post your review.

We are sorry you felt that about the Wi-Fi, I don't know why you were told you were only allowed 1 code per day as this was not the case. However, this problem has been rectified, now we have password accessible wi-fi to offer for free to our customers.

We hope to welcome you back in the future.

we visited matina for a week on the 26th septemeber to the 3rd october, what an excellent place, all staff are very welcoming, polite and comforting. very quick check inn. we stayed in room 105 which is a studio and with brilliant views of the pool and the sea when stood on the balcony. A big thank you to stergos who works extrmely hard to make your holiday a relaxing and perfect stay. rooms were emaculate and cleaned every day. thank god for the air con as was extremly warm even in september, air con was also cheap, after reading reviews on here we was expecting it to be loads but was very cheap. with deposits given back for the safe. beach was literally 2 minute walk down the road and was very nice. pefkos is a beautifull place and would deffanitly reccomend it, my only fault was the cats which we never saw any of in the matina but did in pefkos its self. apart from that fabulous place will deffo be returning in the near future. thanks for everything you did to make our stay perfect.
Shelby & Jimmy.

Room Tip: would probably have a room on the 1st floor and not ground floor.

After searching trip advisor for accommodation near Lindos we decided to give the Matina Aprts a try. We booked through Thomas Cook upgrading to a 1 bed apart from a studio. The apartments have an excellent location - only a 2 min walk to the beach. Beach was very crowded and if you only wanted to spend a short time there you would struggle to find any space unless you were willing to pay the 8 euros for a bed/umbrella. If you were looking for a good value lunch time snack bar then the sea view taverna across the road was excellent and very reasonable (Gyros and Mythos - delicious). Our apartment, I am assuming, was in the older block and was of a reasonable standard, the kitchen area was particularly well appointed. Although the cleaner came every day it could have done with a more thorough clean. The drawers for clothes were particularly dirty when we arrived and under the beds had not been cleaned/swept in a long time. The bathroom was suffering from mildew and also needed a good clean around the bath. We cleaned the bath ourselves on a couple of occasions. The pool area was nice with the usual suspects getting up at the crack of dawn to reserve beds and leave them unattended while they went back to bed. We ate in the hotel restaurant once which was okay. We found the best restaurant to be Mary & Gina's Fish taverna. The fish platter was particularly good value. The only real downside for the Matina is the music/entertainment going on till the early hours of the morning. Considering that this was marketed as a family resort I think midnight would be a more acceptable time for the music to finish. Also the hotel could make the air conditioning more affordable. We hired a car for 5 days to explore the island which was great. Rhodes town was particularly worth a visit. Lindos can be reached by bus in about 10 minutes and is a must both day and night. On one of our evening returns to Pefkos we stopped in a village called Vati and ate at the Pelekanos restaurant which was traditional Greek and excellent. All in all we had a very nice holiday and the staff at the Matina were very helpful. It is unlikely that we will return to Pefkos as we explored most of the island but if you are looking for a reasonable priced holiday the Matina is ideal.

We will return in 2013 for our 4th stay at Matina in 5 years. We did try Crete for our second holiday last year, but nothing compared to the lovely Pefkos. Everything about this hotel is so welcoming... We literally cannot fault it!! We have stayed in different rooms in different blocks and loved every single one. Perfect location for the beach. Can't wait to return!

We had our 2nd stay at Matina this August and, what can I say? We loved it just as much as the first time. Everything was just great, the staff, the pools, the bars, the food. Credit to the Kids Club for keeping our little ones entertained for the whole fortnight!! We will be there!!
