Reviewed September 27, 2013

Stayed here with a group of lads in July 2012. The hotel itself is spotless, the rooms were really nice and were always cleaned, the hotel was located nicely at the top of the strip, not too busy but not too far from all the clubs, and about a 5 minute walk to the beach.

As it was a lads holiday, we were after a lively week and looking to utilize the alcohol part of the all inclusive deal. However, the drinks were awful, there was only 1 bar, which always had a lengthy queue, and drinks were served in tiny plastic cups! The spirits and cocktails really were like paint stripper, almost impossible to drink. The staff were rude and not very helpful! In addition, the food was awful, so to summarize it definitely wasn't worth going all inclusive! The hotel was quiet around the pool during the day, and had more of a relaxed atmosphere rather than a lively one which we were anticipating.

Overall, this hotel may be worth visiting as a couple looking for a relaxing holiday, but would keep away from being all inclusive if possible, as we ended up eating out most nights.

location is great.. especially if you're 18-30 and dont want a far walk from the night life.
rooms were clean and spacious.
STAFF WERE ABSOLUTLEY AWFUL. we were informed by the receptionist that we had to check out at 10am the day before our flight because if not we would have an early check out at 3am and it was not possible to check out at that time. we therefore packed and came down the next day to check out a whole 16 hours before we had to leave without any complaint from us to then have a very impolite conversation with the receptionist. She raised her voice at us not making eye contact once. (bare in mind she was speaking to us whilst rudely talking to other staff mid-conversation and using the telephone whilst in conversation with us) she was near enough shouting at us for her incorrectly telling us we needed to check out a day early and we could actually still have the room.. surely she should have been apologising for informing us incorrectly and for the hassle and inconvenience of us having to pack and be down before 10am for their own mistake in the end.
Constantly felt like i was scum and judged because I was a young british girl even though me and my friend were always very polite and made sure we would make little noise as possible.
only good thing about this hotel is location and pool area.. staff let this hotel down massively

Pool was nice food wasn't that nice everything had about a ton of salt on it and there were birds flying in and pecking at the food. The room was 4 sharing and was quite cramped. The drinks at the bar were vile but quite strong so it was OK. Right on the strip too and 2 mins from the beach so was really good location.

No doubt Majestic is one of the nicest hotels to stay in when visiting Laganas, Zante and every rep I spoke to did clarify that. It's located just before the better half of the strip, heading towards the beach (5 minute walk) with pretty much all the good bars and clubs right on the doorstep, great if you can't be bothered for a drunken trek home!

I couldn't fault the rooms, we came as a two and were allocated a room big enough to fit 4 people which was lovely and spacious and always clean - housekeeping came everyday and did a great job with fresh sheets and towels.

What I would suggest to anyone thinking of staying at majestic, if possible, go self catering or half board, I wouldn't bother with all inclusive unless you're planning on rinsing the bar and don't mind cheap nasty drinks or really really poor food with lack of variety. The snacks you get throughout the day aren't snacks, just half a sandwich already pre made and wrapped in cling film (which they don't inform you is available to get anyway). There are plenty of cheap eating places right outside (definitely try Sirocco for breakfast) with a lot better quality and there is even a Nandos around the corner!

The staff aren't that friendly and reception weren't helpful, they didn't inform us of any information on arrival, just pointed our room out and told us the number. The cost of wifi and late check out are ridiculous so if you've got a late flight, expect to be kicked out your room at 10am or pay 60€ to stay til the evening. Would suggest you don't bother buying wifi at the hotel, it doesn't always work and there's plenty of bars (even at the beach) that offer free unlimited wifi when you buy just 1 drink at their bar.

Other than the negative points, I would recommend Majestic for the nice rooms, cleanliness and perfect location, just don't bother with all inclusive.

We were in this hotel for 10 days! The hotel is not bad - it ia only 10 minutes from the beach!
Breakfast, lunch and dinner were always fantastic - very tasty and you can always take what you want to eat - meat/fish/very tasty potato/fruits/salads/cheese/vegetables/bread/soup!
Nicos - manager of the hotel is very friendly and professional, thanks a lot for his help and hospitality!
Misha - barmen of the hotel is the best!
The bar works till 00:00, that's why you can always drink a lot before crazy night on the most popular club street.
Spa in the hotel is not bad! When you check out ypu can use a shower in the spa center for 5 euro.
Reception can give you a city map, but if you want to have find good places to see and to eat - it's better to use internet, becouse personol don't give you any advices!
In summer this hotel is very good for young companies of friends, for family its's better to go in april or september!
