“WONDERFUL HOLIDAY YET AGAIN”
Reviewed August 23, 2010

This was our 3rd stay at the Matina Apartments and 4th stay in Pefkos. I had booked direct with the hotel arranging my own flights but they arranged transfers to and from the airport.. From the first e-mail to the end of the holiday Irini, Bev and Julie on reception could not have been more helpful. We were this time in the new apartments and was very impressed with them. The staff in both bars and the restaurant were very helpful and always very friendly especially Stergio and Amy. The food was excellent no matter whether in the pool bars or in the restaurant and good value for money. There are plent y of sunbeds for everyone and although there were a lot of teenagers there was never any problems with them disturbing the sunbathing. The location of the hotel is perfect away from the main part of town and close to the glorious sandy beach with a sea that is safe for young children because of how far you can go out before you are out of your depth. We were part of a large group and all of us have already booked to go back next year.

A perfect venue for a lively family group, this was my 6th time at Matina and would recommend it to anybody with young children and teenagers. Matina just gets better evry year with new facilities cropping up each time and the ongoing upgrade of apartments, WELL DONE TO ALL INVOLVED KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK AND WILL SEE YOU ALL NEXT YEAR HOPEFULLY

We loved this accomodation, I have worked in travel for many years and think that this accomodation is amongst the best i have stayed in within europe.
The staff were extremely friendly , the location amazing!!!
We were allocated rooms in the older block which were a little more basic than the newer ones however they were quieter so depends which is more important to you.
I loved Pefkos plenty of restaurants, nice beach and easy to get around on local transport.
This complex was amazing for kids we travelled with four children age between two and seventeen and there was something for everyone.
The Thomas cook reps were very good too and very reliable.
All in all one of the most meorable family holidays we have had! And at fantastic value better still!!

My 11th time staying in the Matina Hotel and it is still as brilliant as ever. The rooms are lovely and spacious and very comfy to stay in. There are 2 pools at the accomodation, both nice to stay around as they are very relaxing, but the beach is not far down the road so it is nice to spend a day at the beach aswell as the pool. Nightlife is excellent, plenty of nice restraunts with great food, aswell as bars to enjoy a few drinks in. I highly recommend the Matina Hotel as it is a great place to get away too, my family and i love it there, thats why we keep going back every year for more!

Just back from 1 wk at the Matina with extended family including 4 teenagers. Our studio room was the biggest we've ever had in Greece (we've been about 14 times to various islands) - large L shaped room at the back of the block away from the pool bars which do have entertainment nightly (but these aren't too noisy and certainly don't go late into the night). Aircon was 45 euros for 1 wk and you needed it - very hot outside! Room well equipped for Greek standards with a bath/shower and a microwave, toaster and kettle in the kitchenette.

Apartments are really well kept, grounds are lovely and full of flowers, pools were large and clean, but did get crowded, however the beach is literally a 2 min walk away so you have the best of both worlds.

Food the the pool bars was v.reasonable with quick service from ever smiling staff! The cocktails were 4.50 and very refreshing! Best restaurants in Pefkos are Enigma (for the view as well as the food quality), the Greek House (opposite the apartments, lamb shank to die for) and Smile Garden restaurant which does a fab 3 course set menu for 7.90 euro each and they threw in a free carafe of wine!

We've been to Rhodes about 4 times and stayed in private villas and also at the Stella Apartments, have to say Matina beats the Stella hands down....based on location, the food and service from the pool bars, and the pools themselves being large enough to cope with all the guests. Would go again! Book with confidence, you'll love it! Yammas!!

I stayed at this hotel with my husband and 8 year old daughter for 1 week but we wish we had stayed for 2. We stayed in the new block in a 1 bedroom ground floor apartment which had 2 bathrooms, it was clean and spacious we paid for 1 air con in the main room which was enough. The location was excellent a short walk down to beach and a walk up to the main area with all the restaurants,shops and bars.The staff at the hotel were excellent and friendly especially in the restaurants.The 2 pools were excellent and we got sunbeds no problem,the poolbars were lovely and served nice food the meltemi which opened on the evening was excellent we tried a few places to eat in Pefkos, Nostalgia was the worst it looks nice from the outside but it took them 20 min to take our order then the food came out within 5 min the starters and main meal together and the mains where lukewarm, some people we talked to said the same and a couple of people had nice meals there but they went early evening and said we should have went then but it shouldn't matter what time you go to eat wouldn't recommend at all, Smile was very nice but the Meltemi was the best.The kids club was brilliant and my daughter says the staff were great fun.Having a supermarket on site was handy. We got a taxi to Lindos which the lady at the front desk phoned for us it cost 18 euros there and back,Lindos was great we paid for a donkey to take myself and our daughter to the acropolis my husband walked next to us make sure you don't wear sandals if your going to walk up there, it cost 5 euros per donkey and was worth it, to go in the acopolis it cost 6 euros each for adults children are free the ruins and views were stunning, just make sure when going up there you buy drinks before in the town as the little bar/shop at the top is a rip off .We also went to Rhodes town for the day which is a must.We spoke to many people who are repeat guests at the hotel which says it all.The only moan about the hotel is the cleaners didn't empty the bins everyday they are suppose to 6 out of 7 days and having a ground floor room ment we had a few ants in the room and a load on the balcony because of the foliage. Overall the holiday and hotel was excellent and we will defintely go back and stay in the matina.

This was our 1st time staying at Matina and after reading all the great things people had to say on this site and matesofmatina I certainly was not disappointed. The Matina is ideally situated for the beach and just a short stroll up to the main street.

I was pleasantly surprised when our coach journey from airport only took us approx. 40 mins with being the first drop off. Check-in was straightforward and we were then promply shown to our room. Our 1 bedroom apartment was located in an older block behind the launderette on the ground floor and was surprisingly spacious. Shaded by trees, the terrace only got the sun a few hours a day, but we didn't mind as this helped to keep the room cool. Room was a bit dated, but clean with linen being changed every other day(except suns). Only gripe would be cost of aircon.

Our room was close to the new pool & baby pool, which my kids loved. The first week we had no problem getting sunbeds round the pools but going into the second week found it harder with more and more people putting their towels out earlier. Although additional beds did appear.

Facilities at Matina were great for the kids, they had the TC kids club, well equipped playground and games room, they also loved the go-carts next door.

I can genuinely say we never had a bad meal in our 2 week stay in Pefkos, a few favourites were Enigma, Meltima, Red Dragon, Alexandras.

We tended to go to bars with kids play areas - where we could relax and have a drink while the kids made new friends and played safely - Jasmine Cafe Bar & Armonia (which also had free wi-fi) were a couple of favourites.

Staff at Matina were all extremely polite and friendly and would go out of their way to help you have a most enjoyable holiday.

All-in-all we could not fault the Matina and will certainly make a return visit soon.
