Paradise Matala Hotel, hotel in Matala

Located in Matala, a 9-minute walk from Matala beach, Paradise Matala Hotel has accommodations with a garden, free private parking, a shared lounge and a terrace.

Casa E Mare is a great place to stay. It's a short walk from the main beach road but still has a nice selection of restaurants around it. It appears to be a family run place and I found everyone there to always be friendly and ready to help. The rooms are very large and actually feel pretty luxurious for the very reasonable price being charged. Additionally, they are very thorough in the daily room cleaning which is extremely nice for a beach place since no matter what you do, you will bring sand home with you. Kata Beach is only about a 10 minute walk away but they even offer a shuttle bus that will take you there or to Karon Beach or Kata Noi Beach. They will even pick you up again! The internet is extremely strong.

    Such a beautiful little seaside village that comes to life at night. Could have stayed longer and enjoyed the views, vibes and people. Also we found the pricing cheaper for food and drinks. I must stop

    The room was clean and relatively new looking.

    The room was clean and relatively new looking. There is no wifi or tv in room. They have wifi at the bar and should be able to get it to rooms with routers but have not bothered. The bed was a disaster, it was hardest bed I have ever tried to sleep on. My wife and I both hardly slept and had sore back in the morning. We have been travelling for over 5 weeks had no problem with any other beds.

    There is a great vibe at Matala that differs from the rest of Creta. The hippie feel is true. We caught live music the night we were there and it was the best moment. This along with the red beach - strongly recommend.

    Matala is a tourist hot spot.

    Matala is a tourist hot spot. So a lot of restaurants there, lot of tourist shops with souvenirs and a lot of people. The beach itself is not that big, but it was nice though. I mean it really depends on what you are looking for. I am more fond of less crowded and less touristy places, so perhaps next time I would look for something more matching my preferences. On the other hand there is nothing wrong about Matala at all. All the people there are very friendly. Really it depends on what you prefer...

    Matala is a quiet little town with not a lot of traffic, music or noise. You come here to relax. If you like naturist beaching this place is definitely for you (Red beach and Komos beach). Moreover, Matala can be a good base for visiting the area (you have to rent a car or a bike).

    Hotel Matala was exactly what we expected it to be.... wonderful. Small hotel in the beach zone, which was one street from the beach and the village centre, so quiet at night away from the bustle. Room was exceptionally clean, lovely shower and comfortable beds. There's no pool here which does not matter at all as the beach is 2 minutes away. Free parking just up the road was great - there's very little parking in the beach zone. Lovely owner who was super helpful. Astounding value for the price Highly recommend

    Beautiful room with balcony, quiet and comfortable sleeping, fridge available, aircondition working, good cleaning every day, good breakfast, very friendly staff, 2 mins walk to the beautiful beach. Many restaurants and souvenir shopping nearby (handmade stuff also available). Matala is peaceful, live music in one of the pubs in the evening (hotel is located quiet, but central 5 min walking distance to everything)

    Absolutely AMAZING apartment in SPECTACULAR MATALA. The place is probably the best short term rental we ever stayed, and we do travel quite a lot. Eva, the host was super accommodating... but the place.... the place is just AWESOME... the pictures do not do justice... you're RIGHT ON THE BEACH in Matala, one of the most enchanting towns in Crete (or is it on earth?).

    Xenia’s Dias is in an excellent location for walking everywhere in Matala, and an added bonus is the free parking on sight. The bed was very comfortable, our room was quiet, everything was spotless, and the staff was very helpful. The free breakfast at a nearby cafe was delicious and came with a great view of the beach.

    This is a very simple hotel in a great location in Matala. The parking and location were definitely the highlights and make everything about the experience easy. The room was spacious but simple. Staff was kind and helpful without being intrusive. 2 minute walk into the heart of Matala and the beautiful beach.
