“Lovely”
Reviewed 15 September 2012

Do stay here if you get the opportunity. It was such a relaxing experience. The room was lovely and the pool was so nice. The hotel is about a 5 minute walk from the beach which is good as you avoid the noisy beach bars at night. The staff are helpful too. The only real sticking point was the amount they charged to drop us to the boat. It is at the other side of the island but it was less than a 15 minute drive with traffic and they charged 18 euro. Compared to other taxis this was at least double. Most unsatisfactory.

There is loads to do in Kamari and two nights was not enough.

Room Tip: They play music at the pool bar until 1.30 am. Therefore, I would avoid a room at the front of the h...

We just came back from Santorini where our daughter got married. It is such a beautiful island. We stayed in Hotel Matina for 10 days and loved it. They helped us with the wedding by arranging transportation of the guests and they actually put some decoration around the hotel for this special day. It was only a few small things but was very thoughtful. It was unbelievable that a hotel cares so much for their guests but I guess this is the difference of staying in a Greek family hotel. Thank you all for a great time!

Great location, breakfast healthy and fresh. Pool nice and big always spotless. Pool bar lovely the choc milkshakes and strawberry piña colada's are not to be missed. The rooms basic but gd, the bathrooms are small and with a 7 month pregnant lady made it interesting but it was fine. Staff were lovely, nothing too much trouble.

We stayed in Matina for ten days in June/July 2012 and had a wonderful experience - two adults and our two-year-old son. All the staff were helpful and friendly, the hotel was clean, comfortable and well located. The pool is excellent - including for little children and the price was excellent. I would recommend to others without reservation.

A couple of personal tips as feedback. The breakfast could be better with a wider choice (not that it was bad, but with a bit of thought it could be really good) and put iPod docks in the bedrooms. Also, we would have appreciated more restaurant tips across the island - not just in Kamari.

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.

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.
