Very pleasant atmosphere, delicious dinner, as if Mama cooked it. This is the way to imagine Greece. Friendly, and uncomplicated. The way to the beach and the beautiful village Matala is short and on foot well also several times a day to cope.

We stayed here while visiting the festival - location was very good as just outside the village but still an easy walk - we stayed in the main building with a nice view across the pool, our room was clean, comfortable, good bathroom, and the air con worked very well which was important as it was extremely hot and humid...

Stayed here for three days. They had upgraded us to their super pretty white bungalow which we love love love! Lovely quiet area with plenty of space for parking. It has two rooms and four bed. A bit difficult for us to sleep on two twin beds being put tgt but not much of a problem. We had a back... More

I booked us a room in Matala Valley Village having done very little research. Here is what I found. Very nice breakfast buffet. Only negative was maybe the coffee which was from a machine. The breakfast staff were super friendly and very accommodating. The rooms were very clean. The air-con worked brilliantly and was also clean. I had a few... More

This is our second time staying here - I must say I think they have done some work on improving the hotel since our last visit 4 years ago. The bungalows are great and very quite.

The rooms are more a bungalow. Very big. Very beautifull room. Food (breakfast) was good. Not excellent but very good. It was 500 meters from Matala beach. The room was very clean. Beds are very good. I recommend this hotel

We stayed here for 2 weeks at the end of July. We had a classic room in the main building, the decoration is classic Greece and are spacious enough for 2. When entering our room for the first time it smelled a lot of cigarettes and the smell persisted for the rest of our stay. Cleaning could have been done... More

Visited Matala for Festival, 3d time, before stayed at Fantastic and Zafiria. It's not so near to the beach as hotel's mentioned before, but big plus of Valley Village - you can have quiet nights :) and nice walk for 15-20 min (nearly 800 m). Good breakfast and nice personnel. Regards to Kostas, who was definetely very helpful!

A short walk from the village centre and beach, the hotel is situated on the outskirts of the village (turn sharp left as you reach the bottom of the hill approaching the village). It has reasonable sized rooms with balconies. No extras in the rooms and a distinct lack of hot water for the showers. There is a reasonable sized... More
