“Relax in a family-run hotel!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 September 2012

Our family spent six lovely days at Hotel Matina owing to the personal service offered by the staff/owners. The magic touch of Ms Matina's baking was very evident at the breakfast buffet and the low keyed owner went out of his way for us. The hotel is also in close proximity to the beachfront,great restaurants, and bus routes. Neat, quiet and clean environment exists. Excellent for couples or family members. Highly recommended. Dimitri Koutakis.

The staff is friendly and makes effort to make your stay pleasant. In particular for the breakfast, although it still ended up being monotone (the terrace with a view on the pool and the nice flowers compensate a bit).
The room was simple but clean and relatively quiet, with however 2 single beds for a couple, which is not very romantic.
The hotel is also equipped with a pool big enough to swim, with a service from 10am to midnight for those willing to stay all day long at the pool.
The hotel is located in Kamari, with lots of restaurants and shops, but however a sunset quite early due to the hill close by (shade starting ca 5 pm end August).
All in all, we stayed 1 week and enjoyed our relaxing stay.

I decided on Matina after researching and reading reviews. From the moment you book, you feel welcomed. They pick you up from the port (a 22euro charge) and drive you about 15-20 minute drive to the Kamari beach area which I thought was the perfect area to stay in for all travelers, young, families, couples alike. Hotel is a few minutes walk from the beautiful black beach, boardwalk area, the bus stop (that takes you to the Thira and Ia), many restaurants, cafes, shops, and bars.The rooms are small but not crowded, bathroom is tiny but very clean, ac works great, breakfast is more than a continental with eggs and a few other warm options. Nice pool area with a bar, the whole property has a warm feeling, books and reading nooks, cute little couch clusters to relax.

My husband and I spent a week in late June at the hotel Matina in Santorini - it was one of our best holidays so far. Hotel Matina is a lovely hotel, clean, owners and staff were very helpful and they all speak good English. Breakfast was excellent with variety of food and cakes. Very good location, few minutes walk to Kamari beach. We highly recommend the Matina Hotel - looking forward to go there again.

We stayed for 4 days in July. The Matina is a wonderful boutiqe hotel. Staff were very kind, helpful and cheerful. The Matina is located in a great area. Both close to shopping and a nice beach and silence to stay on the balcony and to sleep. The whole hotel was very nice with a great ambiance. The rooms were clean. Thank you Matina, Vasso, Ender, Haris, Dimitris and all the others for everything.

We spent 2 weeks in late June at the hotel Matina in Santorini and really look forward to going back there. The island is beautiful and the hotel Matina is lovely and is a perfect base from which to travel around the island. The owners and staff very helpful and friendly, nothing is too much trouble. The hotel is very tranquil even though it is only 5 minutes from the beach. The breakfast was excellent with a large variety of homemade food including the best jams you could wish for. We highly recommend the hotel Matina to everyone.

We stayed for 2 weeks in July . The Matina is exactly what we were looking for a small family run hotel where you are a guest and not just another number as with nearly all larger hotels. The hotel is quite basic but it is spotlessly clean with excellent friendly service and a superb location . We would not hesitate to recommend the Matina if you are looking for a small friendly , well run but relaxed hotel .
