Lovely cool environment, pool, small bar. Well within walking distance of town and beach. Rooms spotless and quite large with good-sized balcony. Breakfast was included and it was really good - eggs, cereals etc. Staff were friendly and helpful.

We stayed in Matala in May 2016 which was our 3rd visit in 4 years time. Matala Bay is perfectly Iocated. The hotel is quiet but still it is only a 10 minute walk from the very picturesque Matala village with very nice restaurants, shops and kind people all around. The hotel is relatively simple but that gives it a... More

This was below average at best. However, I think standards in Matala are very low so this could be one of the best in that town. It's an interesting place to stop and take photos, but I would not recommend spending the night, especially at this hotel. The room needed repair/rehab but at least was clean. The people at the...

In Hotel Matala Bay we arrived 5.9 and stayed for 14 days. We got a room in the 3 floor, as we wanted. Dinner always typically Greek, which is particularly found the charm of a wonderful evening. Breakfast is fairly simple but all delicious and perfectly satisfactory. Staff very helpful and pleasant. The rooms are clean and spacious enough. Matala... More

Whilst on tour around Crete, we eventually got sick of changing hotel every day and decided to stop in Matala for a few days (doing Kathering Gorge from here). The Matala Bay has an unbeatable location, right in front on the beach, the caves and only a little stroll to the nightlife area. Our room was clean and ample and... More

When you book a room at this hotel, make sure it is on the new wing of the hotel (which is also in every photo on the internet) and not on the old wing, across the road. We were given a room in the old wing (not what we saw on the photos on the Internet) and although the room... More

The general overview of this hotel is that it is in the mid-low range of the Cretan Holtel we visited. It has a position a little bit external respect to the Matala center but anyhow reacheable on foot very easily in 10 min walk. Sleeping room is sufficient in term of wardarobe, drawers and also cleanliness, the air conditioning was... More
