I went to Florianopolis for 5 days and chose the Majestic out of a list offered in a package of air+hotel. There were also options on the type of room to be chosen. I chose the "luxury room", the best of the choices above standard and superior. This meant I would get a room with a view of the city and ocean in the upper floors. I did get apartment 1112 and the view, although not frontal, but lateral. However, for a 5 star hotel I would have expected better cleanliness in the apartment. I have stayed in three star hotels with better and cleaner rooms than the one I got at the Majestic. I have added some pictures to prove my point. There were stains in the carpet, and in the bathroom, as well as the side panel of the glass desk was unclean and stayed so for the 5 days I was there. Moreover, I left a transparent piece of plastic fall on the carpeted floor in the morning and in the evening I step on it, which meant that although the cleaning staff made the bed, they did no vacuum the floor.
Another thing is that they charge an outrageous price for phone calls from the room. I know that hotels charge a premium for making phone calls from the room but I was aghast to find out that the 37 minutes and 41 seconds of calls made during the 5 days came out to be R$91.84 or US/CAN$61.23. I did ask at the desk when checking in the price of calls and they told me R$1.00 per minute (quite high) but it ended up being almost R$3.00 per minute!
