We two grandparents booked a two room family suite at The Matina on the recommendation of so many visitors. Our expectations were exceeded. Vagelis and Matina Sigalis have continually upgraded their beautiful small hotel while assuring top quality service and a family friendly atmosphere. Their daughter and manager Vasso greeted us warmly on our 11 pm arrival, aided by friendly Zoey. Our rooms are spotless and comfy, with AC when rarely needed, balconies overlook either the pool or it's lovely gardens. Breakfast is included and features quiche from Matina, fruits and vegetables from the family's seaside garden, the yogurt is thick, the coffee rich.
Pool bar staff included Irini Papapavlou serving evenings, Maya during daytime, both so friendly and efficient. Day front desk manager Corina was particularly thoughtful and interactive with our shy grandson and introduced him to a local boy at the pool. Ender aided our booking and further befriended us during our stay.
The owner is a former professional soccer player and navy diver and seems to know everyone on the island. He introduced us to Dimitri's Tavern for an evening of food, drink and Greek dancing and shared stories of his family's history on Santorini.
We loved our stay. It has the flavor of our favorite hotel, The Australis on Patmos, as Vagelis and Foukas are cut from the same bolt.
One advisory: our shower was pretty tiny.
