“Great location and super friendly staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2014

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at the Martina. All the staff on reception are extremely professional and hard working.
We found Thomas Cook to be completely useless and didn't even see the rep for the whole of our two week stay (we will try and book with Fly2 next time) and the girls on reception took the brunt of complaints about the lack of Thomas Cook information but always tried to help and keep customers happy. The people’s cafe was great. Excellent food at fair prices, fabulous service and a great atmosphere - no loud music which was a relief. Valentina and all the staff are fantastic and extremely good with children. We had a great sea view from the older block on the ground floor (room 107) although it can be a bit noisy in the evening as it is right next to the bar where Karaoke takes place. The hotel is two minutes walk from the beach, which is fabulous and not at all commercialised. The cleaners work really hard and on the whole the rooms are clean (obviously it’s self-catering so you have to take some responsibility in keeping it clean and tidy). Lastly, the on site shop is really good and again, the staff are friendly and helpful. We recommend this Aparthotel wholeheartedly.
* A note to the manager (sorry we don't know your name).We noticed you run a tight ship and are very hands-on which is great, but as you do regularly work in the cafe and restaraunt It would be nice to see you smile a bit more and perhaps wear smarter clothing rather than jeans, T shirt and trainers - we hope you accept this as a friedly suggestion.

Been home 2 wks from our 1st trip to the Matina. First holiday to Rhodes and overdue return to Greece. We stayed in a studio in the new block. I sent an email request and was really pleased with the room we were given. It was well equipped clean and modern. Good supply of towels nice touch with fresh flowers on the table. With a late arrival the chance to do an online shop which was all in the room, with our drinks cold in the fridge brilliant! Fantastic service and not something I have come across before on holiday. The staff all work exceptionally hard, cleaners bar staff maintenance supermarket snack bar kitchen restaurant etc. We found the onsite supermarket to be the most competitive in Pefkos. Loved the Peoples snack bar good food and drinks. We didnt opt to pay for a/c but this was available for 49 euros per week for studio. I requested a late checkout the day before we left. Our room was free so no move necessary and for 25 euros we kept it on until 6pm.
While we were there the Matina had a mix of large family groups,big groups of retired friends and very big wedding parties. The group from Wales for the wedding were friendly and considerate of other guests. As a small party we did feel somewhat intimated by the other group. There was lots of drinking round one pool which one side was dominated by the group. I am no kill joy but some of the conversation in front of children was not appropriate. We had the choice to move to the other pool which we did. Simple consideration for other guests would have been nice, shouting to each other from one accomodation block to the other was a little annoying. It didn't spoil our enjoyment of the Matina and we didnt feel the need to complain. My point being there will be large groups staying.
Pefkos itself is very nice, main beach is beautiful. There are some great places to eat within a few minutes walk. The area at the top of the road is more commercial than I was expecting with a strip of restaurants and bars. We took a walk up there once but found all we needed on the road leading to the Matina.
Another mention to the near famous Stergos, true Greek hospitality at its best, and how he remembers every single guests name is amazing.
If you eat out of the Matina 1st make it Kyma stunning setting gorgeous food then Dama Dama beautiful people and a lovely Greek traditional feel.
We loved our holiday and its rekindled our love of Greece. The only slight niggle was other Brits

Room Tip: Request new block if poss.

Great facilities, Great rooms, Great food & Great staff. We spent the week relaxing by the pool & the very close beach whilst our son swam. We ate at the hotel & in the town every night and it was great. Our studio & the onsite supermarket had everything to make lunch whilst we were round the pool & was really spacious. We were only disappointed that we only found the football pitch on the last day.

We returned from two weeks in the sun at Matina a couple of days ago. I CANNOT understand anyone's negative comments on here. The apartments are perfectly located next to the beach, very clean with the maids working hard 6 days a week, clean pools, excellent play area for the kids which is completely safe, unlike some comments made - it is simply a matter of supervising your children and not letting them play without an adult around. The staff are the friendliest I have ever met and the family are always around to say hi and to ensure you are enjoying your time there. We spent hours talking and drinking with Mark the barman,who we will remain friends with - brilliant guy and Stergos the man who never forgets a name! Abby and April the lovely sisters who entertained us every night- lovely girls.
My son thoroughly enjoyed the kids club and they were all brilliant with him and I felt totally safe letting him play in the pool and the play area whilst we watched on.
We are due to go back next year to Pefkos for a wedding and we will definitely be staying here again! Thanks for a great two weeks and some amazing cocktails and meals in the restaurant (the food is to die for!!). See you next year! The Stewarts x

Last day here at matina apartments and will be sad to leave.
Stergos very friendly as all the other staff. Located close to beach and restaurants. Ideal for a week in a less commercialised part off rhodes.

I have recently returned from the Matina Apartments where 34 of us went for my daughters wedding. The first week was lovely it was quiet, relaxing and safe but the second week was exactly as Chris below explained. Youngsters drinking cans all day by the pool and no consideration for the children around them. That area of the pool was a no go. As there are weddings you can expect large groups but at least consider others there were 34 of us but we all know how to behave. I think management should step in and put a stop to this as if I wanted to go to Magaluf I would have done. The facilities are great and the staff very friendly. I didnt have an issue with my room as it was very clean with regular fresh towels. The pool area could have been cleaner though. There is also an issue with health and safety in the childrens park.
All in all our holiday was great and the wedding was perfect although this was not at the Matina.

Room Tip: A supplement is required for a sea view room but the sea can hardly be seen and not at all if you si...
