“Disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2014

We stayed here for one night before flying home, as it's near Athens airport. It wasn't as good as it looked on the website. We stayed in much better hotels in Greece for the same price as this hotel. The bathroom was poor, with cracked grouting and a dead mosquito! Only one window has a fly screen, so we had to keep the other window and balcony doors closed and keep the air conditioning on all night. There is a small pool (the reason we chose this hotel). The pool was fine but the weather was overcast so we only had a quick dip. The beach nearby wasn't very nice. The surrounding area isn't very attractive either. If doing a similar journey again, I would stay the night in Athens.

Because of scheduling issues, we had a transit night in Athens, and rather than stay in the city, headed east from the airport to Marathon. Same cab fare as the ride to town, but instead of grey buildings and rush we got a fabulous view, a quiet, spacious room and a good breakfast for a very good price (about $US80).
At this time (June) there were few other guests and we got a perfect seafront corner room on the top floor, which gave us a 180 degree panorama of the Aegean.
Excellent pool was popular with airline crew, comfortable bar, lovely terrace overlooking the sea and the marina. Quite a few local restaurants to choose from.
Buffet breakfast was reasonable and the staff were very helpful.
Great alternative if you don't want to deal with Athens, and an easy trip back to the airport for the next flight.

Room Tip: Upper floors. Ocean side.

We stayed here for 1 night prior to catching the boat from Rafina port, which is only 10 mins. Nea Makri is a tiny little village with a amazing bar called Cavos, with stunning views and very cool. Good for an overnight, wouldn't suggest staying any longer, as there isn't much to do.

We stayed here for 4 days-the staff are excellent. The location is not convenient and transport-either a car or taxi, is required. the hotel is very quiet and breakfasts are good. the location has a wonderful view of the sea and islands. there are no shops nearby.

Room Tip: Ask for a corner room with direct views of the coast and islands

I want to tell you that this hotel is amazing and encompasses the meaning of GREEK HOSPITALITY!!! The staff was so sweet helping us with absolutely everything we needed. We stayed for a total of 5 days and enjoyed every minute. I will definitely come back when I am in the Nea Makri area again!!!

The best part of this hotel is the positive service oriented attitude of staff/owners. We arrived very late approximately 11pm and were welcomed with much gusto.
We were hungry and asked if there was any chance of getting something to eat at that late hour. Not a problem at all! :) Amazing attitude, we were immediately taken through to the restaurant and had a delicious (and cheap) meal, served by the owner herself I think.
Tummies full, we had a good night's sleep and left in the morning with transport arranged by the hotel.
The breakfast is simple but adequate. The hotel prices are good.
The hotel is a distance from the airport. Approximately €45. Cheaper transport is organised from the hotel when leaving, just ask.
The welcome - can not be beat.
We would stay here again, it is value for money.

Thank you Natasha/Mimi/Panyiotis/Tassos... and all the staff at Hotel Mati... we have had the most awesome time from the whole planning process to our wedding evening. The food and the decorations were amazing - I wish I ate more and chased our DJ less!! Our family and friends were so very happy with everything. We cannot thank you enough for all the hard work you put in to make it perfect. We can't wait to see you all again... and we certainly will next summer. Big hugs all round.. until we see you again. Have a good winter. xxxxx
