It had been around 18 years since we visited Matala, we previously visited 10 years in a row staying in this accommodation. We were met and received with great warmth and friendliness by Antonia who remembered us well. The apartment we had was tastefully decorated and designed.

Wow that's all I can say. Beautifully clean hotel. Spotless throughout and room was brilliant. Very high standard throughout.

Bathroom high spec and great patio...

I last visited Matala, Crete 18 years ago, and took my girlfriend there to see what I always raved about. Matala, about an hour from Iraklion on the south shore (the far less developed and in my opinion, better shore) is a still little discovered gem about as South as you can get in the Mediterranean without being in Africa....

Hello to all. I was in Matala on summer 2004! I stayed in Pension Iliaki for two weeks with my family. It's a very clean and beautiful pension and it's very near the sea! Matala is a very beautiful place, you can't miss it!
