- Pool was always very clean - quite room - in walking distance to village center with nice restaurants
Our bungalow was spacious, clean and ready and made for an enjoyable stay. Bathroom had both lovely bathtub as well as shower compartment. Fixtures were modern and there was tons of storage space. The family members, especially Dimitrios were really warm and welcoming and did everything they could to make us comfortable. Unfortunately, we were the first clients of the season, and they really weren't ready for us. They were filling swimming pools, and construction workers were all over the village. Also, no food or drink available at that time, although we were able to get breakfast.
I went to Greece with a group of eight young professionals. We took a week to tour the islands. It was our cheapest hotel we stayed in on our trip, but the nicest. The villas are so cute with modern interior. I would totally recomend this place.
very nice budget accommodations. Very clean room and grounds, great pool. Brekkie was included in our price...was decent but nothing special. Wifi good but works only in eating and pool area. Not right by the beach but only a about a 1/2 a km, 7 or 8 minute walk. Matala is really awesome
Quiet, convenient for the town on foot, well organised, clean towels everyday, clean bed linen every 2 days, very pleasant, helpful and efficient owner. The bathroom. The floor had to be permanently wet as the shower tray had no curtain/door. The washbasin tap was high and so running water bounced into the basin and out on to the lavatory, which was also permanently wet! Water heated by solar power, so if no sun no hot water. We were lucky 6 out of 7 days. This is Greece!
Great value for money, extremely inexpensive yet included pool and breakfast and good size room.
The hotel is just a 6 min walk from the town of Matala & the lovely tavernas & shops selling traditional Greek goods & art. The hotel supplies a great breakfast inc.coffee/tea, juice, bread, eggs, spreads & yogurt etc. The pool is great & ideal for kids as it has a shallow end (3 feet) & a deep end (6 feet) plus a childs pool alongside. The room is perfect & has a lovely large patio area with tables & chairs where you can relax before going out in the evening. The rooms are clean and tidy, with a fridge/freezer, tv & safe. Perfect location for exploring Crete as you can hire a car & take the left (lovely), or right coastal routes or drive North and explore inland. No complaints at all and am ready to book for September 2011. We had to leave :( but we will be back next year :)
Breakfast Buffet Pool Clean Linens Would have preferred a double bed, Not two single side-by-side. (Asked for a double in the reservation).
This hotel was perfect. The staff was friendly and accommadating. The hotel was a short walk to town and the beach. The room was comfortable.
Very nice white wine bottle included!
Great location, a few minutes walk from the centre. Good breakfast, and lovely pool area. Room and bathroom clean but dated, but for such a good price it didnt really matter! Hard to find on the way into Matala, but a sign is visible as you exit the village. The turning is opposite the Matala Bay Hotel.
The room was large and spotless. There is a new small swimming pool by the building, where breakfast is served. I think for this rate we couldn' t have found anything close to better...
We like the location, The pool is very clean, also the room was very comfortable
Great welcome from staff who seemed genuinely pleased to see us.Room was clean and well furnished and bathroom likewise. Hotel in quiet location but within short walk of the beach,town and all facilities.Breakfast was excellent ...the apricot jam is a must! Be aware that ceilings in the rooms are very high and this combined with hard surfaces throughut mean that sounds echo and are magnified....not a problem during the day, but a snorer in the neighbouring room disturbed us...and probably the rest of the hotel.... on our first night!!
The main staff was quite friendly, and the pool was nicely maintained and refreshing. The rooms were quite small and not very comfortable. Everything was quite bare-bones, and there were frequent complaints about the bugs. Unfortunately, without screens on the windows, you either have to have the bugs, the heat or pay for the A/C. Also, the wireless internet was out and they didn't accept credit cards. The breakfast was most disappointing. Typically, buffet breakfasts that we ate in Crete at least included yogurt, but here it was just a bit of meat, cheese, bread and instant coffee. Yogurt is available at an extra fee. Overall, a disappointing experience.
Very friendly staff. Nice, clean rooms. We were lucky to get a room on top of the roof, which gave us access to the whole roof as terrace. The position of the hotel towards the rest of Kalamaki is very good, it's the best position you can find in the village, a little bit away from the boulevard where with one hotel beside the other. Next to the hotel there is a Taverna called "Marina" which serves the best (home made) food of the village. The beach is right across the (not very much frequented) street. Although the breakfast buffet was acceptable for this type of hotel I would have liked a bit more variation and especially a real orange juice instead of the sweet "nectar" you get in to many hotels around the world.
Very pleasant, quiet surroundings, excellent service. For a peaceful vacation. Equipment appropriate category hotel.
The location cclose to the beach is superb. The hotel was maintained to a good condition and rooms were clean and well kept. The breakfast was excellent and it was great to eat it in view of the sea. Only one lady spoke English and in her absence communication was not easy.
Very good quality-price rate. Very clean.
Beach with free sunbeds just in front the hotel or if you prefere in 5 minutes you can walk along the sea in a "wild" sandy beach. Breakfast is very good, served in a nice terrace in front to the sea. Staff is very friendly. Rooms are large and nice (bat for the double bed that is blocked in an angle of the room). Easy private parking. Very near to interesting archeological sites. In the area strong winds can blow. In case you have to drive 10km to Matala or to other more protected beaches.
lovely family-run hotel in a very small village on the sea, very friendly and helpful staff, careful on details. Free parking, wifi, beach, sunbeds and umbrellas. Perfect for family in need of total relax and nothing to do apart for staying on the beach, lots of regular customers from central/northern Europe. At 45 eur/night is unbeatable! not so easy to find, follow Kalamaki and then the hotel is well indicated once you get to the village. Its main advantage could also be a problem: it's calm and relaxing but there's nothing around and you have to be motorized.
On the beach, friendly staff Room standard could be slighly better but clean and nice views from balcony
We loved everything about the hotel! The family who runs this place is very friendly and helpful. It is virtually by the beach and thanks to Kalamaki localization The only thing you hear when going to sleep is the sea. Breakfest is good, rooms are very clean. We will surely come back to Alexander's next time we go to Crete.
Good value for money. Excellent breakfast. Friendly staff. Good position next to a large beach. Quiet location in a small resort.
The breakfasts and the service The noise of some insects (chicharras) during the morning
