The Majestic Hotel
Ranked #16 of 81 Hotels in Fira
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 10, 2014

My daughter and I just returned from a two week mother daughter trip. We carefully select our hotels and resorts to make certain each base has an atmosphere we think we will enjoy along with a staff that is pleasant and potentially helpful. The Majestic was a ideal choice, we enjoy getting to know an area so the brief walk into Fira was enjoyable. Christina at the front desk was always very helpful, migrating from Greek to flawless English instantly. She made fabulous suggestions, including off property restaurants which were wonderful. Michael, who was always about on the property, was equally as lovely, we enjoyed our stay without a care. The property is well maintained and nicely appointed. The room was spacious and clean. The views were fantastic. And as a bonus, shiny, plump donkeys, with bells ringing, traversed on the road in front of the hotel, in the morning and evening, going to and from work. The whole experience was a lovely way to get to know Santorini.

Normally, my review would end here, in this case there is more. My daughter has a small stuffed lion mascot which was given to her during her second year in college. Even though she is now graduated, and medical school bound, Kitty goes everywhere. Somehow, during our departure, Kitty was left behind in the bed sheets. The absence was noted late in the evening after we arrived in Mykonos. I am happy to say The Majestic's staff found Kitty and shipped him home for us, he made his landing yesterday.

What a perfect testimony to The Majestic's dedication to their guests.

The Excellent service started the second we walk in the Hotel. We arrived early and Christina accommodated us with our luggage and reservations. It was our first time on Santorini and Marianna gave us a orientation about places to see and things to do. She was very informative.
The whole staff was most helpful and the service outstanding. Was a short walk to town
which we liked.The views are breathtaking you can see great sunrises and sunsets.The pool was great the service was excellent special thanks to Babis, Eleni and Flavia for all your personal attention.Also want to thank Panagoitis. The breakfast is also a great presentation and wide variety to choose from. We will most defiantly be staying here again.

Room Tip: We enjoyed seeing the sunset every evening form our balcony which was on the west side or view side...

After reading some of the negative reviews, I think the hotel has really tried to step up its game. We had no issues with the staff-they were very accomodating and friendly (especially Marianna at the front desk). We got there early at noon and were allowed to check in early. Our ferry didn't leave until 5pm the day we checked out and they were very nice about letting us use all the hotel facilities even after we checked out. The pool is beautiful, especially at night ( even though you can't swim after 8pm). The rooms were clean, the AC worked well (which is not always the case in Europe). It is about a 10-15 minute walk into town, however if you walk in the opposite direction there is a grocery store and ATM about 5 minutes away. We had a caldera view, which was lovely, however there is a main road right in front of the hotel, so if you want a more peaceful view I'd opt for the Sea View room. We love to people watch, so the road side view was I problem for us. There is also a very nice buffet breakfast.

At first we were a little worried about the distance from the hotel to center of Fira but the Majestic turned out to be a perfect place for our family of 7. We enjoyed our time by the pool and relaxed for some points during the day, and were able to walk or take a cab into town whenever we wanted to. The rooms were perfectly suited to our needs and we had lovely views across the main road into the sunset. The pool bar served great food and the staff at the concierge was incredibly helpful - assisting us in setting up two days of excursions around the island. The windows and doors are sound proof so you do not hear any cars driving by, and the view while you get ready for dinner is truly remarkable. The car to town is about 5 euros if you have any people in your party who will need a ride, but if not the walk is very easy. After spending time in Fira and seeing how crowded it can get - it was nice to get outside of the town and be able to relax. Breakfast buffet was perfect but ended at around 10:30 each morning, a very good way to get you out and about on Santorini. We noticed several guests spent their days lounging by the pool which shows that the hotel is truly a place of comfort. Beds were comfortable, Air conditioning was very good and the bathrooms were fine. There was a slight issue with the water from the shower running out into the floor, but they do have a drain in the floor to counter that situation.

Room Tip: Choose sunset facing if you would like sunset views at night - but it is on the road side of the hot...

Firstly, I couldn't believe tripadvisor had the Majestic Hotel ranked so lowly as my time here was lovely. The hotel is a few minutes walk from the centre of Fira, which is not ideal but the walk is lovely (and helped burn off all the gyro I ate..). Rooms were rather spacious, views were amazing (particularly sunrise and sunset), food was lovely and staff were friendly. Front desk were extremely helpful and transport was easily organised (special thankyou to Christiana who was particularly amazing). I would definitely stay here again.

I stayed at the Majestic Hotel for 3 nights in late May. The room (#106) was comfortable and quiet with nice bath products, robes and fully stocked minbar. The breakfast buffet was excellent even included champagne to make cocktails. It was just a 10 minute walk to the main town of Fira and the beautiful Caldera views. The service at this hotel was very good. Nice staff, happy to help and answer questions. I had a very early flight upon leaving for Athens and needed to leave at 4:45a. The staff prepared a breakfast that was waiting for me in the lobby area (coffee, juice, muffins). So thoughtful! I would definitely stay here again and recommend it!

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the road.

Santorini itself already amazing , the most amazing island for me
The hotel provide free return pick up from airport or ferry terminal ( at first this is the reason I choose the hotel )
After arriving there I am very happy that I choose this hotel , despite we had to walk around 10 min to town centre
Hotel : the room is pretty nice , feels like home , the hotel structure is pretty big
with USD 100 a night is really a catch to stay in this nice hotel
