One of the more interesting aspects of this type of adventuring is not knowing on any given day what is going to be taken on next. We have tonight's and tomorrow nights accommodation booked here but absolutely nothing else until we hit Paris on the last few days of this month so will be making it up as we go along. Catch a taxi into the main town which is called Fira, only a short distance away which is also located on the caldera. It is where the old port is, it is also where most of ...

... was a challenge in some places, so that’s all I needed to hear– ATV it was.

The hotel arranged someone to come deliver the ATV, but the problem was they didn’t bring a watermelon-sized helmet. Just large and medium. The guy told me I could drive to their office and get an XL. He gave me directions and off I went. I couldn’t find it, but I did fill up with gas. In Santorini and Mykonos (not sure about the rest ...

Santorini to Istanbul

A travel blog entry by wanderingblonde

This is a top pick!

Arrived early at the miniscule Santorini airport, where everyone present was checking in for the same flight. One guy at security manned both the bag and body scanners. The gate area was one medium-sized room with the separate "gates" made of blue French doors about a meter apart from each other. Too funny.

The guy who checked my bag in asked where I was from and then commented on my pale skin. ...

... tzaziki, gyros, and beer of course! A beautiful, oh so warm day. I always thought I didn't really like the heat, but I'm proving myself wrong (again). I love this heat. Feels so good. Oh, almost forgot - Margareet and I did the lying down picture. So funny, we were laughing so hard.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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 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.
