My new husband and i booked the majestic spa as our honeymoon, we are both outgoing and love karaoke so a bit of lively resort looked perfect. The hotel was dirty and on the day we arrived there was blood stains on our bath mat, hairs everywhere, no plug for a bath, no shower curtain, no shower hook to hang it and to top it all off we had to pay 35 euros for the air conditioning that went off when you went out as the key card cuts the electricity. Not a good start but we were determined to enjoy it. We then discovered that there is a night club owned by the same man of majestic on the porch of the hotel. It closes after 3 am every night and the noise was unbelievable. The hotel had a few families which i really felt sorry for because the rest of the hotel was full of younger adults 18-30 type of groups that only there for the drink and clubs. They were loud and aggressive every night and no one from the hotel ever approached them about their behaviour. It wasn't just the british quests, but a lot of Italians, French, Germans and Spanish. we complained several times only to be told its "Hotel policy". Dont be fooled by all inclusive because after 9pm you have to pay for your drinks. the food was repetative and we actually only ate there 4 times ending up spending near 500 euros on food. None of the food is labelled and it really is the same every night. if you book outside thomas cook or airtours its likely that you've booked with either teletext, hotels 4 u or yourholiday.com which is what we did. Please be careful as we never had a rep and our transfer was a random women who was really rude to us. In all honesty your only 15 mins from the ariport in Laganas so get a cab its only 12 euros and we had paid £40 for transfers so lost out really. The hotel on all website advertise entertainment, THERE WAS NONE!
Outside the hotel is a loud strip of bars, restaurants and at least 25 clubs all each competing for competition offering water down drinks as a bribe. We stayed away from the clubs and were made to feel at home in The Pink Panther bar and Relax bar offering Karaoke and fun every night. The strip of road outside the hotel is Discustingly dirty and smelly where it is just constant madness for 6 months of the year. There are alot of Strip clubs, pornography shops and lap dancing clubs on the strip. The Island itself is beautiful and my husband and me were fortunate to see alot of it. For a lovely holiday book a hotel in Kalamaki as its only about 10mins from all these bars in a cab costing maybe 6 euros. it is beautiful and has its a wonderful beach that the turtles go to nest at every year. The boat trips are a must, we went to Keri Islands and saw the caves and also went turtle spotting on a seperate trip.
I have never ever made a complaint about anything in my life, I am a DJ from London so can tolerate a certain amount of stress, but this really took the "do da". I am also complaining to the companies involved in the booking of my honeymoon as they don't tell you anything when you book....4 Star...I DONT THINK SO MORE LIKE A 2 STAR!!!
Please dont give this hotel your money, we found out that the man who owns it is one of the richest on the island......Probably because he's ripping everyone off!
Definately would go back to greece actually got offerred a job out there with my husband, but never to The Majestic Spa!!!
