    Location 8.92 /10

    The hotel is located along the central road connecting Fira to Imerovigli on one side (the north of the island), and Pyrgos and Perivolos on the other. It is about a 10 minute walk from the centre of Fira. The village is served by a bus route that runs the whole length of the island from north to south. The port and airport are 4 mi away, and a free shuttle provides daily connections between the hotel and these destinations.

    Accommodation 7.70 /10

    The stylish accommodation consists of 52 guest rooms and 8 apartments. The decor is understated and emphasises the space and layout of the rooms. Nicely lit and featuring relaxing shades of beige, you will be hit by a wave of excessively strong perfume when you first enter. On the whole though, the rooms are well looked after and have a good range of facilities, including free Wifi internet access, which is also available in the hall. Room service is included in the price and available from 7:00am to 11:00pm.

    The best rooms are those located in the back of the hotel: unlike the others that look out onto the road, these ones have a fine open view over the sea. Unfortunately there is no bidet in the bathroom, but it does have all the fittings and hospitality products you would expect. The only difference between the Standard and Superior rooms is their layout over one or two floors. Apart from that, the service is equally faultless and the amenities are all included in the price. The rooms are equipped with a flat screen television, air conditioning, a mini bar, and a cordless telephone.

    The hotel has only one room designed for guests with reduced mobility.

    Overview 6.95 /10

    The design of this impeccable and unrivalled hotel is based overwhelmingly around its use of geometry. The architecture leaves nothing to chance, and the Majestic could really not be more appropriately named, what with its spacious dimensions, a row of columns on the patio running the length of the hotel, and uniform square blocks.

    An imposing place, it falls victim to a style that sacrifices any feelings of cosiness. With its white leather sofas lined up in the long empty spaces, the reception is a picture of icy perfection. The marble floors of the inner corridors echo with footsteps, and the garden is composed of regular, flat shapes. Nevertheless, it should be noted that the hotel has a number of access ramps as alternatives to the steps. Along with the specially designed room, this detail illustrates the special attention given to people with reduced mobility. The white architecture clearly stands out from the light-wood parquet flooring. Next to the bar (the second one after the exterior swimming pool bar), a few flat screen televisions broadcast 24 hour news channels.

    According to management, the hotel's aim is to market itself towards families and business people. There is no denying the generous provision of facilities, including play areas for children, 3 swimming pools for families (one has a jacuzzi, another is heated, and the third is for children), a 150-seat conference room, and a 10-seat "Executive" meeting room for guests staying on business. However, we did find the blend of two such different guest profiles odd, and certainly did not envy any children staying here: they must feel like they are playing on forbidden ground! The well-being centre is open only to guests staying at the hotel, and offers its services every day except Sunday. It includes a sauna and a hammam, as well as a gym with exercise machines and a games room with a pool table.

    The Majestic is one of the largest hotels we visited on the island.

    Food and drink 7.70 /10

    The Majestic has 3 daily sittings: the capacity of the dining room is limited (20 covers) compared to the size of the hotel. The linear layout of the room is highlighted by the white stoles hanging down over the light-wood tables.

    Well located, the restaurant affords a view over the terraced hillsides, with its back to the mountain (seen through the picture window in the hall). The style here is more natural and less manufactured than the rest of the hotel, giving the place the feel of a Tuscan agritourism centre, albeit one of a less rustic variety and boasting greater attention to detail. We were especially impressed by the architectural trick using unexpected materials to recreate the vaults of a country property. The presence of flowers by the entrance lightens the atmosphere, which is never far from slipping into the rigidity of the rest of the hotel.

    The prices are average: £10 for a starter, between £7 and £8.5 for a salad, pasta dishes starting at £10, and other mains at £13.5, while desserts cost £6. Averaging out the prices, a full meal (starter, main, dessert, excluding wine) will set you back about £30. Dinner is sometimes served around the pool.

    Beach

    The hotel is too far from the sea to have easy access to the water, and therefore does not have its own beach.

    To know

    The hotel is particularly popular with Americans. Having opened in 2005, it is still in an impeccable condition and fully deserves its 5 stars.

      • Location 7.42

      The Atlantis is located on a hill in the town of Fira and was the first hotel to be built on the island in the 1960's. It is closed and renovated every year during the winter season, which means that the few facilities that it has are well maintained. The hotel enjoys fine views over the volcano crater, but it is also close to the pedestrian area of the capital, Santorini, making it well placed for exploring this small Greek town on foot. Most of the guests here are senior citizens from America.
