Matala View - visitor's Reviews
·We, my sister and daughter enjoyed a thoroughly relaxing holiday at your guest house/hotel last July. The accommodation was spotless and perfectly adequate for all our needs. It was a very quiet, no noise much after 11 o'clock which we really appreciated. The proprietors were extremely friendly and helpful and genuine in their concern that we should enjoy our holiday. Matala itself was a lovely little village. You stepped out of the hotel and within a few short steps were at the shops, restaurants and many cafes so close at hand. The beach was less than five minutes from the hotel and the sea was a wonderful temperature. Only caution, you had to be a good swimmer to get into the water as there is a shelf of stone to negotiate to get in and out, your balance has to be good. If you are looking for a quiet relaxing holiday, but to include some sightseeing, this is the place. Ancient ruins are a short bus ride away, hire car service and trips are easy to arrange,again yards from your hotel. We intend coming to stay again.
·Most enjoyable stay in Matala (again) Clean room and friendly and helpful staff.
·Our fifth visit to Crete,our third to Matala and our first to Matala View. We have now found the perfect place to stay on Crete. We will be back next year. Thankyou Sofia and Manolis- the perfect hosts.
·We stayed at Matala View and had the charming German family (Siegfried, Helga and Lea) as our neighbours. Agree with everything they say - Matala is a good base for exploring the surrounding area and Matala View a lovely place to come back to each day.Very well located by a stunning ,mountain side in lovely gardens. The family is very welcoming and if you are lucky you will get some of Georgia's cakes!
·We came to stay at the Matala View for the third time this October. As always Manolis and his family were welcoming, friendly and went to great lengths to make sure that we didn't want for anything for the entirety of our stay. We love staying here! Thanks Manolis and the Matala View!
·Hello to Matala, We spent two wonderfull weeks in Matala View Pension. Everyone in the hotel was so friendly to us and our little shy grandchild and gave us the feeling of coming home, although it was our first stay in Matala View, but surely not our last.The Appartment we had was very clean and quit, almost perfect! Greatings from Germany to Manolis, his family and all friends. Hope to see you soon!!!
·ENJOYED THE STAY, THANKS.
·First time in Matala but not last. We wish to thank you most warmly for your hospitality to us during our stay in Matala.
·Our second visit to Matala View, and a thoroughly enjoyable one! Would definitely recommend it to anyone, whether you've visited Matala before or not. Very friendly but not in an "in your face" kind of way, just nice and relaxed. Agree with the other comments, especially about cleanliness and the warm welcome. If you've not been, then do it!
·Hallo, we spent holiday in Matala for second time after ten years becasuse of nice memories and we were very satisfied again. Matala View Pension is nice, quiet and clean, close to the sea, comfortable for children. Weather by end of September and beginning of October simply perfect. We will come again.
·It was our first visit to Crete and will not be our last! Manolis and Sofia were so efficient and courteous to deal with over the booking and gave us a very warm Cretan welcome to their very comfortable pension situated so close to the heart of Matala. The town is charmingly compact but has all the amenities we needed and was surrounded by spectacular and beautiful scenery. We will come back to Crete, to Matala and to the Matala View Pension!
·We returned to Crete after an absence of more than 14 years.And we were not to be disappointed,Matala itself seems still to be unspoiled from mass tourism and is still truly a magical place to holiday,which of course we enjoyed very much. Our stay was made all the better by the warm hospitality of Manolis,Georgia,Sophia and Aphrodite at the Matala View Pension,who run a very friendly,warm, and clean, establishment which cannot be found in the busier resorts of Crete.We look forward to our return in the Springtime when we will hopefully walk in the Samaria gorge.
·IT'S THE THIRD TIME THAT I VISIT MATALA. IT WAS VERY STRANGE TO REMEMBER THE FIRST TIME THAT I CAME 25 YEARS AGO WITH LONG HAIR . NOW I TURNED BACK WITH A CHILD. LIFE CHANGES BUT ONE THING DIN'T CHANGE VERY MUCH: CRETE, MATALA AND THE PEOPLE. THE KINDNESS OF EVERYBODY. RESPECT FOR THE TOWN, FOR THE VISITORS. I HAVE PASSED ONLY TWELVE DAYS, BUT IT SEEMS LIKE HAVE BEEN IN MATALA FROM ONE YEAR. TWELVE LONG BEAUTIFULL DAYS WITH A LOT OF PICTURES IN MY MIND. ONE OF THESE PICTURES IS THE KINDNESS OF MANOLIS, GEORGIA AND THEIR FAMILY.
·We received a very warm welcome from all at Matala View Apartments. The apartments were clean and comfortable and we will definately be visiting again.
·Hello, We had a very nice holiday in Matala. We enjoyed our stay at Matala View, the only thing we missed was som more shadow on the terrace, in the afternoon especially. See you again! Lise and Carsten Høyer
·Me and my friends have just came back from Crete and our stay in Matala has been GREAT!!! This village is so beautiful, you can find all that you want in a so small place: shops, disco-pubs, cafè, beach bars, supermarket...but most of all wonderful beaches and crystal clear seawater!And what about the special atmosphere of Matala?Furthernmore we have been very satisfied of our stay in Matala View apartments for the good quality at a cheap price and for the kindness of Manolis and his family! We hope to come back in the future! Chiara
·Matala ist one of the most beautiful places in the world. Each time, we come here - we feel like in paradise. Especially on the red beach. It ist one of the single places, you always want to come back. We like to stay in our favorite hotel "Matala view", because it is quiet and Manolis family is so nice and does everything for a pleasant stay. We are sure to come back soon!
·Our 14 days in Matala were absolutely great! We enjoyed staying in your appartment very much. Our children (and we) were very sad to leave! Matala, Pitsidia, Lentas, Agia Galinni, Imbros Gorge, etc... we will never forget. We hope to be back one day.
·This July Me and my family (4 adults and 2 kids) have spent one beautiful and unforgettable week at Matala. The only which was a bit sad thing the weather was a bit windy and my son was unable to play more in the sea because of the big waves. But Georgia, Manolis and their grandchild was absolutely nice and their hospitality and kindness can't compare to anywhere else I was previously. I would really like to recommend for everybody who plans to spend any days around there to choose Matala-View and you will get unforgettable moments for a reasonable price. The scene is picturesque and the rooms are very clean. You would like to stay there much more than you could be. Thanks a lot for the pleasant stay there and if we can get back then we will choose you for sure!
·We had a great time at the Matala View Apartments. PLenty of space, with our two rooms and a balcony, which was lovely to sit on with a glass of wine before getting dinner in the evening. Breakfasts were great. Definitely fabulous value for money. We hope to be back soon.
·What a pleasant and warm welcome we had when my 2 sisters and I arrived from Iraklio! Georgia was the best hostess - offered us an additional room upstairs without additional charge. The rooms were very pleasant, breafast sumptious - the best value in town! Manolis helped us with our route when we left. We would definitely recommend Matala View for anyone wanting a room at Matala - and we would stay there again if we go there in the future!
·We had a very pleasant holiday in Matala. Our booking was very simple online, with Manolis even arranging for our rental car. The personal service in the beach front Tavernas was outstanding. Our best regards to Manolis, Georgia and all of those that made us feel welcome in the village.
·We came back to Matala after 20 years, not sure what to expect. The village has changed a bit (even new tarmac on the roads now!) but everyone is still very friendly, and we had a really good week. Matala View has a superb location, near the centre but quiet. Our room had lovely views up the valley toward Red Beach. Thank you for making us so welcome. We very much enjoyed your breakfasts - a really good start to the day. We have been recommending you to our friends, and hope to see you all again soon.
·Creta is one of the best Mediterranean isles. We had two wonderful weeks in Matala and all around the island. The Adroulidakis family supported us for all our needs and was very kind. Thank you Manolis, Sofia, Afroditi, Georgia and best wishwes also to Dimitris! Hope to see you all again. Greetings from Venice, Giuliano-Roberta-Roberto-Ivana.
·We enjoyed a too short 9 days holiday, quiet and relaxing atmospere with so friendly people at Matala View. Best regards to Georgia, Manolis, Sofia & Aphrodite, hope to come back next year!

·Hallo Manolis, Georgia, Sofia and Aphrodite, we spent 3 weeks in Matala View and it was a real nice time. Not the first time and sure not the last time! You were very kindly and we still remember the wonderful dinner. Now we miss the sun, the beautiful beach and all the good friends in Matala. We wish you all the best and hope to see you again next year. Many greetings and thank you very much, Bernd & Danae.
·Dear Manolis, Georgia, Sophia and all, thankyou very, very much for all you did for us over the 2 wonderful weeks we had at Matala, and Matala View apartments. It was more than we thought it would be, the room was perfect, with a great view of the surrounding mountains. You were all very kind to us, and always happy to help with anything we asked for. We are now safely back in London, England, although our hearts are very much in Matala with you. Good luck for the future and we will see you again when we return. Love and Peace, Pavlos & Lucy.
·Our family (three kids and 2 adults) spent our fantastic holidays in Matala in June, 2005. As we have spent 5 weeks in Matala View Pansion we have made our real opinion about this wonderful place! Dear Mr. Manolis, Sophia, Georgia and Aphrodite!Thank you very much for your great hospitality, for your kind assistance with everything what we needed during our staying with you! Also we would like to note that the Pansion located perfectly OK - in very queit place and in one minute walk from the beach. So we really enjoyed our staying much and would like to get a chance to repeat our voyage again! All the best to Matala View from Moscow, Galina-Nikolay-Anna-Arina-Ekaterina.

·We spent 5 days in Matala View Pension (apts #14 & 15) & it was really great. We really apreciate attention paid to us from Manolis, Georgia, Sofia. matala is a wonderfull village for spending very good hollidays.
·Manolis, Georgia, Sofia and Aphrodite were very kind hosts. Georgia's cakes were delicious and Matalaview Apartment was very comfortable. Creta is a wonderful Island. Thank you for all!
·Matala was nice and relaxing and our hosts at Matala View were very hospitable. Manolis showed us how to make a Greek fish casserole and it was delicious. The carvings on the rocks at Red Beach were as fun to explore as the caves. The water was great. We'd love to come back!
· Matala View is a very friendly hotel. The host and stuff are very nice and they make you feel as if you were at home. Matala view is very convenient, near the main beach and not too far from Red Beach and at a walking distance from shops and bus stop.
·Really enjoyed my stay in Matala-View. Very nice people, uncomplicated and pleasant! Looking forward to come back.
·The Matala View is a great place to stay, with friendly people and clean, airy rooms. We particularly liked the studio apartmens with their balconies for sitting and watching the sun set. The mini kitchens were very handyu for making cups of tea! I'll be coming to Matala View again!
·I am thinking we should return to Crete because our visit was simply beautiful and our stay in Matala too!
·We have stayed in Matala many times over the years but this time in Matala View was the best we visited old friends and Manolis and Georgia made us very welcome. We will be going back again next year. Matala View very highly reccomended and Matala if in Crete.
·We stayed at Matala-View for only one week and we didn't want to come home . . we will definately visit again but for two weeks. The rooms are clean and comfortable in an ideal location. We were made to feel very welcome. The resort is traditional and unspoilt with lots of nice bars and tavernas.
·We stayed in Matala-View for three weeks and we can say, that it was the nicests place we ever stayed. The rooms are clean and quiet and Georgia and Manolis take care for their customers like a family!!! We would like to come back soon. Andrea+Elisa
·Hello! I revisited Matala after 33 years and was not disappointed in 2004. My daughter Alexis, my sister Carole and my best friend Jeanne & I stayed at the Matalaview Apartments and were very comfortable. Our hosts were very accommodating, as was all of the people of Matala. We loved the bakery by the boats and made many trips there too. The Greek people are the best in the world and I do look forward to making this trek again. If only it was not so far away! Thank you Matalaview!
·Our two weeks at Matala View were fun and relaxing, and the facilities and surroundings were just perfect. We had sun and warm temperatures every single day, eating out regularly at the many quaint restaurants nearby. The beach is only a couple minutes walk down the road. Sofia and Manolis were friendly hosts, making us feel quite welcome in the true Greek tradition. Thanks from us all: Kiffin, Thea, Lennart, Marlies, Sabien and Maarten.
·We stayed in March out of season in a difficult time for us but with Manolis' omelets and his calm and friendly way of dealing with us we just wanted to stay for ever! Later in Mai we met his wife and daughter and we are looking forward seeing them again soon.
