“An outstanding experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2010

During our two-weeks in Greece, we stayed in six 4-5 star hotels on the islands and the mainland. While all but one deserved their star ratings, the Majestic Hotel was the very best in every way. The views across the island to the east, and the spectacular perspective to the west from the edge of the caldera cliff, were breathtaking. The room we had, while not the top of those available, was clean, spacious and well paid-out with a large en-suite and wonderful king-ssized comfortable bed. Amenities were numerous: simple but not always available - extra pillows, extra duvet, coffee/tea in the room, proper lightings, comfortable chairs. We were there for three days and each breakfast was the best we had during our 14 days. Seating was on the patio or in the A/C room, and the food was diverse, fresh and excellent. Wonderful, friendly staff. Incidentally, I have never before written a review of hotels and rarely read any. But I really liked this place!

The Majestic is a great hotel, propably the best hotel in Fira area from what i've seen , the location is convinient just a 10 minutes walk from the centre of Fira but the staff is amazing and the one that makes the difference...
Starting from the complimentary transfer to the hotel (by the way you have to let them know with which flight you're coming in otherwise you'll have to wait there for them to pick you up like we did) to the front desk staff which had great recommendations on restaurants and things to do there and most of all the breakfast which was delicious and the girls there really nice and polite, they really made our day!
The pool is large and we spent most of our time there, we also tried the hammam at the spa and the gym as well.There is free internet in the rooms even if we didn't spend much time there are so many things to do in Santorini
Overall i loved Santorini and the hotel i'm definitely going back there someday

we began our 3 week Greece vacation at the Majestic in Santorini. It was the most incrediable 6 days of my life. It was myself, husband 3 kids aged 14, 12 and 8....and my brother's family of 5, mu cousin family of 4 and my other cousin with her husband. There was 18 of us all together.
The staff could not have treated us any better than they did. The 5 star rating lived up to its expectation and the kids had the most amazing experience.There was one night we decided to go to Oia to see the sunset and we got stuck there as no taxi was willing to come out and take us back to Fira. We called the hotel for help and a taxi was there within 15 mins. to take us back!!! talk about service.
The hotel was clean, the food amazing and the poole to die for!

We stayed at the Majestic just a few weeks ago. It's hard to pin point but the hotel seems to have some really nice points, and some really bad downers at the same time. It is an easy walk to Fira. The breakfast brunch is outstanding.

The Good:
Most of the staff were wonderful. They were very helpful for everything from food to nightlife. The pool is great, and even deep enough to dive. We could watch the sunset from out balcony. The finishes in the rooms are good. Peter was awesome. He picked us up from the airport and volunteered to drop us back.

The Bad:
The night time manager was rude and short with us. When we brought our rental car back at night and didn't know where to park it, he made us feel like complete idiots as he talked down to us. When we came to the front desk (next to the pool) to ask for pool towels, the gave us towels, but felt compelled to tell us that we could have gone back to our room to get them as well (we decided to take a spontaneous dip). The rooms have a very unfinished feel (example: the marble in the bathrooms and area that had been cut to accommodate plumbing, but there had never any follow-through to finish the job). We left the room at 2pm and told them the fan was broken, when we returned at 10pm it still hadn't been fixed. The patios attached to the units are beautiful; however, the patio furniture was so filthy with caked-on dirt we couldn't sit on them. On the grounds, there was miscellaneous litter spread about (buckets sitting all day in front of unoccupied units that we being cleaned, etc..). Oh, and major road right out your window isn't great, especially if you are on the ground floor. You can definitely hear the cars go by.

we've stayed at the Majestic for 4 nights on August and all i can say about this hotel is that it was perfect for me.... After read of all the reviews about it i was disappointed having to stay there since i already booked on a non-refundable reservation but the finally i enjoyed my stay there 100%... Rooms are nice and spacious, service is excellent and the pool area amazing...My girlfriend and i wanted a place close to the nightlife of Fira but away from all the noise afterwards and the location suit us fine since it was a 10 minute walk from the town...We rented a car ant drove around for a day cause no taxis were available due to the fact that it was the peak of the season...
Don't miss the red beach and the lighthouse they're very close to each other and also take a cruise to the volcano which definetely worths it...we took a semi private one with a catamaran which saved us a lot of hiking and it was great...
Overall i would recommend this hotel for sure

We stayed here even though there some less than sterling reviews. It is a great hotel. It is beautifully appointed and has a great staff that was helpful in every way. The rooms were spacious and the beds were very comfortable. It is true that there is a major road that runs by it but our room was on the road side and there was essentially no noise at night. The pool is very large and refreshing. You are a 5 minute walk from town which presented no problems for us. We were traveling as 10 friends and we all would highly recommend this hotel.
