Reviews of Hotel Matheo in Malia, Crete
Hotel Matheo Review by Lin Dillon (Crete but originally UK) - Rating 10/10
Wonderful, family-run hotel, away from the "madness" of Malia, yet only a ten minute stroll to the old village, or 15 minutes to the beach.
Spotlessly clean, fantastic food, optional air-conditioning, modem lines in all rooms, safety deposit boxes in reception, a very large pool with free sunbeds and parasols plus a small children' s pool.
My husband and I stayed there for many years before coming to live in Crete last October.
Very cheap: I purchased flights over the internet, phoned the hotel to let them know when we were arriving (they provide a free transfer service to and from Heraklion) and for four weeks, including half board at the hotel, flights and travel insurance it was just under £1,500 for the two of us!
The family could not be more friendly and there are no language problems - George and his sister, Tina speak fluent English!
