I have just returned from a week with my husband at the Majestic and was a little sceptical after reading a few recent reviews! However it was fabulous. The hotel is gorgeously stylish and minimal, pool and sunbed so relaxing, clean and quiet, loads of beds and no saving beds at dawn!
The lunches at the Pool bar were fantastic. Our room with a Caldera view was great, clean, nice bed linen and with drinks making facilities, lovely good size bathroom and plenty of toiletries if required.
The breakfasts were great but the staff in the restaurant including Eurina and Rena plus the Pool Bar staff were lovely, friendly and couldnt help enough, really lovely people. Overall we found everyone on Santorini incredibly friendly - even shopkeepers where you didnt buy anything.
Although the hotel is a good 10 min walk into the town of Thira the town is steep and cobbled and it was nice to get out of the busy town back to a quiet oasis. Thira town gets busy with tourists from the cruise ships and can be very hot and claustrophobic during the day but at night it cools off.
We ate in the town but wished we had eaten in the hotel restaurant more after hearing how good the food was from other guests. It initially looks expensive but realistically we paid similar amounts for dinner at tavernas that were very mediocre.
Beware of Thira airport on your return, it is a nightmare! Totally disorganised, not enough space and total chaos!
