      Historical Traveler Reviews Majestic Hotel Fira

      Begeistert!

      from

      Dieses war wirklich der Höhepunkt unserer Flitterwochen, nachdem wir vorher schon in Athen und auf Kreta waren. Das Zimmer war größer als erwartet mit einem Bett im Loft des Appartement und es war sehr sauber. Das Bad hatte ein Jacuzzi/Jets Tub. Das Personal und der Service waren exzellent (sehr freundlich, hilfsbereit, nützlich, sie buchten Touren für uns und haben uns Postkarten verschickt). Als wir eine Taxi über das Hotel bestellten, war der Preis genau der, den wir auch erwartet hatten. Das Frühstück war gut, es gab einen hübschen Pool und die Läden und Restaurants konnte man zu Fuß erreichen. Ich würde Ihnen zu einem Zimmer mit Meerblick raten - unsers war mit Sicht auf die Landschaft (wir sind nicht gerade Profi-Touristen).

      Nicht schlecht

      from

      Meine Frau und ich waren während unserer Flitterwochen im Juni 2005 hier. Es ist ein neues Hotel, das wirklich gerade mal eine Woche vor unserer Ankunft aufgemacht hatte. Dieses hatte sowohl Vor- als auch Nachteile. Ein Vorteil war, dass wir wie Könige behandelt wurden, mit Ausnahme von einem der Angestellten an der Rezeption (es waren nur noch 5 andere Gäste zu der Zeit im Hotel). Wir waren die ersten Gäste, die in unserem Zimmer übernachteten (eher ein wenig klein, aber nett eingerichtet, qualitativ gute Möbel, großer Balkon und nettes Badezimmer). Nicht so toll war, dass es noch Probleme mit dem Service gab. Einer der Angestellten an der Rezeption war nicht der freundlichste. Wir wollten ein paar Postkarten verschicken und er hat uns in die Stadt geschickt, anstatt es für uns zu machen. Es gab noch keine Speisekarte für den Zimmerservice, am Gebäude wurde noch gearbeitet usw. Es war trotzdem alles sehr sauber und schön eingerichtet mit einem tollen Restaurant und einem Büfettfrühstück. Der Pool war wunderbar, genauso wie die Caldera-Aussicht auf der anderen Seite. Insgesamt ein sauberes, modernes Hotel für einen guten Preis. Definitiv nicht Weltklasse, aber für die Gegend sehr gut.

      U.S. Single Girls Love Santorini

      from

      "Love the Majestic!" report two single girls from the U.S. We were in Athens prior to arriving in Santorini. This was the highlight of our vacation! We came to Santorini looking for relaxation and fun, and the Majestic accommodated us. Breakfast: great service and food that was included in our rate; a great way to start our day! Pool: area was excellent - very well-kept; view of the sea was breathtaking; the cabana bar staff provided everythinig we needed with a smile! Reception Desk: talk about problem solvers! The main guy totally went out of his way when we had requests. He came through for us every time; his service was very much appreciated! Bar: we ended every night in Santorini with a drink (or 2 or 3!) at the bar. Wonderful service and conversation with the bartender. If you have problems sleeping, try the Planter's Punch! It definitely works. Good times!!!!!!!! Overall, these two single women found the service to be some of the best we have ever encountered (and we've traveled a lot!) Stay here! Thanks, Majestic Staff!

      Outside the hotel: a taxi into Fira costs 5 Euros; well worth the expense for a wonderful day of shopping and restaurants filled with terrace sunset views. Food was excellent as was the wine! The service everywhere was unlike anything in the U.S. - it was so much better!!!! We will definitely return to Greece for another holiday.

      Nightmare in Santorini

      from

      We arrived at this hotel on our honeymoon and were very dissappointed. We expected a 5 star hotel and got something more like a 2 star hotel. The rooms were very ugly and had a nasty chemical smell. They showed us other rooms but they were all the same. The hotel staff were extremely rude and would not let us get out of our booking. We were so unhappy that we left and got a different hotel even though we paid for this one.

      Whatever you do, DO NOT STAY AT THIS HOTEL!!

      Loved it!

      from

      This was truly the highlight of our honeymoon after first staying in Athens and in Crete.

      Room was a lot larger than we expected with a bed in upper loft, and clean. Bathroom had Jacuzzi/jets tub. The staff/service was excellent (they were friendly, helpful, expedient, booked tour for us and mailed our postcards for us). When we requested a taxi via the hotel, the rates were exactly what we expected to pay. Breakfast was good. There was a lovely pool, and shops and restaurants are within walking distance.

      I would suggest requesting a room with a ocean view - ours faced the countryside (we're not particularly high-maintenance tourists).

      Very disappointed

      from

      After searching internet for a luxury hotel in Santorini, I found Majestic Hotel, a new 5* hotel. When we arrived at the hotel with my husband, we noticed that the hotel was on the main road, with no view at all. The room was very small and dirty and full of flies (flying insects all over the place). After complaining about this to the hotel staff, they used aerosol for killing the flies and then the room became full of dead insects (we had to complain again to clean the room). The whole story was repeated every day and the room smelt bad due to the sprays. Although we complained, nobody apologized or suggested to change the room. The staff was unfriendly. I had the worst vacations of my life in Santorini in this hotel!

      Not bad at all

      from

      My wife and I stayed here on our Honeymoon, in Early June 2005. As a new hotel, it had literally opened one week before our arrival. There were definitely advantages and disadvantages to this.

      On the positive side, we were treated like royalty by everyone except one of the front desk guys (there were only 5 other guests at this large Hotel), we were the first ones to stay in our room (on the smallish side, but with nice decor, high quality furnishings, big balcony, and a nice bathroom).

      On the negative side, there were still some service problems. One of the front desk guys was not too pleasant. When we needed to mail some post cards, he sent us into town, instead of mailing them for us. They did not yet have room service menus, work was still done on the property, etc...

      However, everything was clean, well decorated, with a great restaurant and buffet breakfast. The pool was wonderful, as was the caldera view on the other side.

      In summary, a clean, modern, hotel, and a great value. Definitely not world class, but great for the area.

      High Marks

      from

      We stayed at Majestic for 5 nights in September. Between my family, we had a total of 4 rooms. All were first floor rooms and very similar in size/layout with modern amenities. All had nice sized balconies overlooking the caldera and lovely bathrooms with (bless them!) full sized shower curtains and very nice toiletries. The rooms aren't huge, but certainly adequate in size and beds were comfortable.

      The service was excellent while we were there from the cleaning staff, to the front desk (excellent restaurant recommendations), to folks at the bar and pool area.

      The pool is lovely - very large and there are actually 3 pools including one for children. Lots of nice chaizes for laying out and relaxing. It doesn't overlook the caldera, but the view out towards the sea on the other side is lovely as well.

      Breakfast was a very nice buffet; we also had good, simple lunches by the pool and an excellent dinner at the tiny restaurant one night.

      I was concerned that the hotel would be out of the way, but it's a 10 minute (max) stroll to the middle of Fira and it has the advantage of being out of the line of the cruise boat tourists.

      Do note, this is not a "typical" Santorini hotel with cave-like rooms, built up the side of the cliff. You'll be disappointed if that's what you're expecting. However, the facilities are very modern, very child friendly (unlike lots in the area) and perfectly suitable for anyone with mobililty problems. If you're looking for a very small, intimate and romantic hotel, this is not for you. But if you want a lovely, modern, well run, upscale hotel, I'd highly recommend The Majestic.

      Not so bad

      from

      I agree with the previous reviewer. The majestic doesn't look so majestic. The pictures on the website is a little misleading because it shows the pool and it looks like the pool is right off a clifff but behind hte pool are local houses and donkeys and ugly grass. Other than that the hotel wasn't too bad.

      The hotel is about a 10 minute walking distance to Fira town (where the hotels/restaurants/stores are that are on the cliff). It is definitely not a bad walk but the first day we did kind of wished that we got a hotel that is on the cliff where it has a very breathtaking view. But then the majestic is not bad for its price.

      Hotel services were ok. We preferred to have a room on the second floor but the stupidest thing is that they don't have queen size beds on the second floor and only on the first floor (maybe it was just that day). So we had to put our twin beds together. They also don't have free hotel/airport services so we have to pay for our taxi rides. They do have free internet usage though. The hotel was also lenient on checking out late. We checked out as late as 5:30 since our flight out wasn't until 7.

      THe hotel pool was nice. We laid by the pool the first and last day. Although I didn't use it, there were showers beside the pool if you need.

      Anywho, if you don't mind that hte hotel is not right on the cilff, the hotel is recommended. It is very clean and everythign is new. The designs in the htel are modern. I would recommend it.

      The Majestic Hotel not so Majestic

      from

      After looking at the internet at luxury hotels in Santorini I saw the Majestic Hotel, a new hotel and the only 5 star on the Island. When we arrived there we noticed there is no view. The service was apalling. The Reception Manager wasn't very pleasant and we had requested a double room and was given a small room with 2 single beds. My husband was ready to hop on the next plane OUT of Santorini. Luckily I convinced him to look at another hotel at Oia and we stayed 4 nights at Katikies. Now that's Santorini.

      Up and walked into town after our morning coffee. It was another beautiful day and we decided kleftikoto head to Volcano Blue because they have plug-ins for our computers and we can get a lot of work done while we enjoy the scenery and of course watch the people walking to and fro.

      Today our ship stops for the port of Santorini. This is a tender port so we will all leave the ship by small boat to be taken to shore as the cruise ship is too big to dock. We have a private 5hr tour of the island booked (10am-3pm) ending with a swim at a lovely ...

      ... As we waited the area filled to capacity and still no idea of what happens. Suddenly noticed a stirring of people and movement to formalise a line then we saw the boat reversing in. How on earth were we going to get up to the passenger deck with our luggage? So like good sheep we followed the crowd to discover an escalator with a crew member pointing to a room and calling out -"Luggage - keep moving". I am sure you can picture it, with me being caught ...

      What a big, hot day!! We planned to go over to Bodrum (Turkey) for a day trip, and had been conned into going on the fast hydrofoil, a 20 minute trip. It was meant to depart at 10.00 and we arrived at 9.30 to a crowd of about 1000 people lined up to go through the Greek customs - of which there were two custom officers checking passports! Modern day Greece certainly could learn from their forefathers in efficiency and organisation. We had been promised that we would ...
