Matina Pefkos Aparthotel is an apartment hotel in the pine tree-fringed resort of Pefkos, on the Greek island of Rhodes. The beach and the centre of this laid-back resort is a short stroll away. The hotel has four outdoor swimming pools, as well as two separate kids' pools. Inside, there's Wi-Fi in the public areas. The hotel's a la carte restaurant has some covered outdoor seating, and you can also relax on the terraces around the pool with a drink from one of the poolside bars. The hotel provides entertainment in the evenings, or you can simply enjoy the warm nights on the terrace or balcony at your apartment. Lee Beach is sandy, and its shallow waters make it a popular place for families and snorkellers. There are bars and tavernas along the shore, and the resort centre also has a choice of places to eat and drink, as well as a few shops. There's a wider choice in the neighbouring resort of Lindos, which is a short drive from the hotel; look out for its rooftop restaurants with views over the sea. Historic Lindos is best-known for its ancient acropolis, which stands on the hill above the town and bay.
Matina Pefkos is 50m from the centre of Pefkos and 60m from the beach. The resort of Lindos is 6km away. Its streets are lined with traditional whitewashed buildings, and there's a mix of typical tavernas and modern bars. There are three beaches close to the town, including Main Beach, which is a popular swimming spot. Rhodes Town is 48km from Lindos. It has a medieval quarter with narrow, winding streets and a modern district with boutiques, bars and cafes. If you'd like a day trip to another country, you can catch the ferry from here across to Marmaris in Turkey.
The hotel has an a la carte restaurant that is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. If you want to prepare meals in your apartment, you can pick up supplies at the on-site mini market or head to the shops in the resort a short stroll away.
There's a playground in the hotel garden, and a shallow swimming pool for babies. The hotel has table tennis and a pool table.
The rooms have kitchenettes with electric hotplates, a fridge and a microwave. They also come with an outdoor dining area and a TV.

We were unhappy with our room so went to reception to asked to be moved.
The room was supposed to be on the ground floor, but was actually about 4 or 5 feet below ground level. Dark and smelling dank, there was mould above the mirror in the bathroom and we had to have the lights on all the time. The room, 906 I think, was more like a dungeon than a hotel room.
We were told there were no other rooms available. We went back next morning and we were told the same thing.
Before going back the second time, I brought up their website on my Phone and lo and behold, there were rooms available. Then I showed them my phone, Abracadabra, they said there we other rooms available. Magic.
I was not at all happy that I had been lied to, and I told them so.
For the next couple of hours or so, they pestered me with messages saying I had misunderstood and that I wasn't offered the other rooms because they were also on the ground floor. Ground floor would have been a massive improvement!!
They will probable say the same things in answer to this post. If they do, they'll be lying again.
After all that, the hotel is great, the position couldn't be better and if we'd have had a decent room, this review would have been very different.
I decided to take the plunge and book a solo holiday in October. Usually I would stay at Pefkos Beach hotel but as that was closed decided on Matina due to its location to the beach, bars and restaurants.
I wasn’t disappointed.
The team at the hotel really made me feel welcome as a solo traveller and looked after me well. The attached People’s Bar and Meltemi restaurants were handy if I didn’t want to venture far at night.
The room 420 was very nice. Had a lovely view and a large balcony which I was grateful for. It was nice to enjoy a glass of wine in the evening sat enjoying the stars. Yes the room could do with a little upgrade but it was clean. My only challenge with the room was my clean was due at 5.30pm and I was always back in my room by then. So I emptied the bins myself. A clean wasn’t that important just for me but it would if there were 3 guests in the room. It would be good though if the cleaners could change their routine so I wasn’t last to be done in the day.
Used the ABC online booking service for my shop and it was amazing to have the beer in my fridge on arrival !
Used the pool on a couple of occasions when I could get a sun bed with space. Some of the beds were a little too close for me in the current climate.
I would definitely return ... in fact I am next August. There is just something magical about Pefkos and Matina ...
Booked for 1 week and stayed for 3. 1 week Matina, 1 week Anthi Maria and 1 week Lemon Tree. All excellent accommodation with lovely, helpful staff. Valentina, Tsambika, Chris make a great team. Vera our maid was great too. Highly recommend these places to stay
