A wonderful hotel! I am not aware of previous reviews claiming that the hotel is not a 5 star hotel. A luxury hotel, clean, excellent food, amazing service. perfect! An amazing beach, an excellent pool and a variety of tasty food. Highly recommended!!
Just returned from the Mayia and what a fantastic place. This hotel is definitely a 5* hotel which offers pure luxury. The hotel itself oozes class and sophistication from the deco and design to the hard working staff that make you feel special. The rooms are clean and modern with sea views, the rooms are cleaned everyday with turndown service in the evening, Pool towels are changed everyday if required or not. The Main restaurant is very good with a good selection of foods to suit all tastes. There are 3 A La Carte restaurants Greek Italian and Asian which you book at reception with usually no problem getting the date and time which suits you. The staff at the restaurants are all very hard working and nothing is too much trouble for them. The pools are huge and cleaned every morning by a hard working cleaning crew. There is waiter service around the pools which is brilliant and we have to mention Juliano who doesn`t stop all day but always has time for a chat and a smile on his face. Top man Juliano. The all inclusive is excellent it includes all branded drinks and MOET in the champagne bar. Once again all the bar staff are friendly and cannot do enough for you. This is the best hotel my wife and I have stayed in, keep up the good work everyone at the Mayia and see you next year.
Service: Upon arrival we were kindly greeted by a charming chap at 1am 02/06/2019 and were still given Moët, strawberries and water. The check in process was smooth and we were efficiently shown to our room. When we got to our room there was a tray of sandwiches and macaroons which were greatly appreciated. The actual service within the room was a bit hit and miss.... we usually leave our room at around 12pm everyday after relaxing, however this meant that we always missed out on the mini bar top up as they came round earlier (we had the DND on) this should be checked when the cleaners clean the room. This meant that we had no water in the night most nights. Also the coffee capsules were sometimes not topped up. Hotel: I’ve never seen a hotel stand out as much as this stunning piece of architecture. As soon as you come round the corner from the airport you can see it lit up in the distance. It’s so stylish, clean and modern. Even the reception has a unique scent which I wouldn’t mind having back at home. Room: We had a sea view deluxe room (1131) which was spacious clean and ultra modern. It had a smart TV where you can check things like your bill, stream photos and music and watch certain popular apps. The bathroom was amazing, huge spacious walk in shower, surround sound (you can listen to music from the TV whilst showering) and White Company toiletries with robes and slippers. The mini fridge had beer, soft drinks, crisps and Haribos. There was also a Nespesso coffee machine which we used daily. The balcony was spacious with two chairs a table and a sun lounger. Our room was in the main building so the sea view was ok but not the best I’ve ever had. Restaurants: For me the order of the restaurants goes Greek, Asian and Italian. The Greek and Asian are very accommodating where as the Italian are not very accommodating. We always book a table for 9PM and three items in the Italian were not available and the pizzas tasted like plastic frozen ones. Also when we asked to change an ingredient in a dish to something else that’s on the menu they said that the couldn’t do it.The Asian has an extensive menu and Ashley is so nice polite and helpful. In the Greek restaurant there is a lot of choice for mains but there is only one starter which is meze but the food and presentation is amazing. I didn’t get the petite polite girls name that worked there but she was so helpful. The buffet is satisfactory but not very varied. Lamb chops seemed to be on the menu every afternoon/night. It was also hard to get a drink at some points. The small eateries are amazing. Freshly made sandwhiches, gyros, ice cream and Greek delicacies. Wowowow! All the staff were so helpful and would go out of their way for guests. One exception to this however is the gyros place serve chips with the gyros however, the wouldn’t serve just chips when my partner asked one day. Bars: The Del Mar Bar was amazing. So much choice and Alkis is the best waiter. You can have Grey Goose, Belvedere, Bombay Sapphire, Jack Daniels etc. The cocktail maker (James Bond) was so swarve. I love pornstar martinis and I asked Alkis if they could make one (it’s not on the menu) and he said sure it’s our speciality. The champagne bar was good. It has an inside and outside seating area with sea views and Moët on tap. Only thing I would say is that champagne cocktails would be a nice added extra. They sometimes do cheese and wine pairing too which is a bonus. The pool bar was also good but there is not as much choice. I like Malibu round the pool but this was not on the menu. Altzen is a star through the day. He walks round the pool taking orders with a smile and always asks people if they’re ok which was nice. We didn’t go to the nightclub as it’s not really our thing. They don’t seem to use the wristband policy so instead you have to use your room card, this can be a bit of an inconvenience when you have a bikini on and don’t have any pockets for it. Swimming areas: There are two big pools which are never crowded and we could always manage to get sun loungers at 1PM. I can’t understand the people who complain about the pool being cold? If you come in May then it’s going to be cool.... same as any other hotel. It was perfectly cool and refreshing in June as you’d want it to be. It’s not a hot tub. The beach is very good also. It’s so quiet and you can have as many sun loungers as you want. It’s quite rocky to get in the sea so I’d suggest taking some sea shoes. A little cabin has been added where you can get beer & soft drinks but not cocktails and spirits so it’s a long walk back up if you drink spirits. Entertainment: The day time entertainment team are excellent. There is aerobics, water polo, darts etc. Nothing is forced though so they don’t push if you say no thank you. The evening entertainment is a let down really. Same schedule week in week out and on some evenings there is nothing. We’ve stayed at Mitsis Alila in Rhodes which I’d compare with this hotel and their entertainment is much better. It’s more engaging and makes you actually feel like your on holiday. This hotel needs to up its game in this area. In exception to this the Funk Town boys were amazing but we’d already seen them at Alila. Overall: I know in my review I’ve said some negative things as well as positive but it’s only to try help the hotel build the best hotel on Rhodes island. Therefore I’ve given a 5* review as no hotel is perfect and we can’t wait to come back very soon. We thoroughly enjoyed our eleven nights so thanks to the team at Mayia!
Been here one day. The reason I’m putting an early review on is to dispel any negativity that has been put on here . The place is stunning. Room lovely and view just gorgeous. Pool a dream and food to die for. Staff are really friendly . I cried with happiness last night when we got here it’s that breathtaking. Every negative thing anyone’s ever said just isn’t true, I will put and of Hol review on but right now it’s heaven. Jackie Owen.
We loved the new accommodation - especially the restaurants were a great place to enjoy our relax holiday. The room service was always willing to change our towels at any time! Great bar - where we were known and got our drinks even without ordening ! Thank you Alkis!
And it has just been gorgeous. We are a huge fan of Ikos Resorts and once word gets around about Mayia, you will be hard pushed to get a room as it’s of the same vain but adults only. The setting, the staff (they are unbelievably kind, courteous, friendly and hard working - can I ask guests to remember that they are not your servants and a please and thank you would not go amiss!!!) and the overall sense of peace has been sublime. Every year my husband and I escape from “life” to spend a week just us, devour nice food, have a few too many drinks and to watch the world go by and Mayia has worked it’s magic. Thank you George and Jacquelyne
Everything was perfect for our holiday. We had a swim-up room, the food was very good and plenty of choice, the bars were perfect with a beautiful view and all the staff were very friendly. We are coming back next year!
Stayed for a week at end of May and thoroughly enjoyed all the facilities at this very luxurious hotel. As the hotel is only a year old, everything is in pristine condition and its clear to see that this hotel has been designed and finished to a very high standard. The grounds extend over a huge area resulting in everything being well spaced out which creates a very peaceful and relaxing environment. No sunbed wars here, oodles of space to pick your perfect spot. Food is plentiful across a range of restaurants and of a very good standard so be prepared to put on a few pounds. Drinks also of very high standard, Bombay/Tanquery gin, Belvedere vodka and Moet all included. Excellent service from all staff who appreciated you taking a little time to engage with them and have a bit of banter but we always firmly believe that you should treat others as you expect to be treated yourself, unfortunately not all guests abide by this All staff encountered were courteous and polite and a special thank you to Alkis, an extremely pleasant and professional waiter in the main bar who always ensured we had a drink at hand (fresh ice, not frozen.......) Also big thank you to Michalitsa from guest relations who responded promptly to my requests for some info both prior to and during my stay (hope you enjoyed the sweets !!!) Superb hotel which I would gladly return to. Hope to see you all again soon.
My wife and I stayed here at the end of May 2019 for 10 days, booked through TUI Poland for our honeymoon after getting married in October. As soon as we arrived at the hotel, we were blown away by the service. Arriving mid-morning we didn’t know if our room would even be available but it was. We were immediately offered drinks and snacks and shown to our room with all the amenities and facilities shown to us. We had a sea view room with a balcony (room 1135) which was spacious, impeccably clean and nicely fitted out. Cleaned at least once if not twice a day, you couldn’t find a drop of dust! We had the same cleaner almost every day and she was wonderful! So friendly and helpful and left different lovely towel decorations on the bed each day. Such a nice touch. As it is all inclusive, you have the mini bar which is replenished each day and very nice toiletries in the bathroom. TV has good functionality although limited channels beyond news channels. The main restaurant and the three a la carte are all great with the Asian and main probably being our favourites but the Italian and Greek were also good! Special shout out has to go to the staff at the main restaurant who assured us they really don’t work every day, although it really did seem like they were. In particular you have to say hello to George who is possibly one of the nicest people you could meet, plus Domina, Maria and the rest of the team! They work so hard and are always so friendly and welcoming, it’s actually very humbling and you feel very at ease in their company. They are sometimes busy, and so be patient if you see they are as they will get to you and nothing will be too much bother for them. The selection for the main restaurant is very wide and changes each day. The a la carte places have a smaller selection but great quality. The bars and the small places to get ice cream, sandwiches, street food etc during the day are great and again with super service from the staff. You could easily spend your entire holiday at the hotel resort as they have everything you need! Alkis at the main bar is a mind reader too and has a drink ready for you before you’ve even finished your last and realise you want another! :-D The pools and the beach are also clean and of a great standard. They aren’t heated, but it’s Greece and in the hot weather a warm pool wouldn’t make sense. The indoor spa does have a heated pool and a jacuzzi. It also has a steam room, two saunas and a Hammam as well which are all free to use. The selection of treatments at the spa is good and not overly complicated. Prices are suggested by some to be expensive but remember this is a 5 star resort and the spa is a reflection of that offering a 5 star service! You will not be left disappointed in my view! I personally had three treatments and was not disappointed at all! Vicky deserves particular praise for her friendly and warm manner and professional service! She knew exactly what treatments to recommend me and made sure that everything was 100% perfect! A true asset to the team there! If you go to the Spa Reception you will hopefully meet Sophia who no matter how many times you go there asking questions or wanting to cancel or change a booking has a smile on her face and will do anything she can to help you! She is another one who always seems to be there, but again I’m assured does have days off! Katerina and Eri are also incredibly helpful and welcoming! Katerina you will know as the friendly lady waiting for you after breakfast to show you around the spa and show you what else awaits you beyond the outdoor pools! The indoor gym is also well equipped and the activities team will help stop you piling on the kilos from all the great food with things like water polo, aqua aerobics and loads of other activities! I really could go on and on and on about how great this hotel is, the facilities are great, the location is quiet and pleasant as its adults only. What stands this truly out from any other hotel I have visited around the world - THE STAFF! INCREDIBLE! 10 star if I could award it! ;-) Thank you to the team for a wonderful holiday! We truly didn’t want to leave and will definitely be back as soon as we possibly can!!
We spent 8 days in Mayia as from May 30. Stayed in Premier room with sea view (room 1222). Mayia is one of the best holiday hotels I stayed in, excelling on different levels: - service: impeccable. Any request is being taken care of. One feels pampered every moment of the day. Special thanks to the staff at reception, the people in the main restaurant, the main bar, the pool bar and pool restaurant. - room: beautifully decorated. Decent size. Materials used are of high quality. Airco functioning well (and silently). Great shower. Very good amenities (The White Company). Minibar filled daily. Great sea view. Rooms also very clean (cleaned twice a day). - Food/drinks: impeccable with excellent and very large offering in main restaurant, both in the morning and evening. Service is also very professional in main restaurant. One really feels at ease and relaxed, enjoying the large choice of excellent food. Also restaurant at pool was excellent for a meal in the afternoon. Next to that, also able to enjoy main bar, pool bar, ice-cream, finger food most of the day...with here again great service. Specialty restaurants (Italian, Greek and Asian): see remark below. Ultra all inclusive formula of course makes this hotel stand out: includes food practically all-day, international cocktails, top-rated international spirits, excellent wines and even champagne (Moët & Chandon).... Fantastic offering! - Swimming pools: great! Very large (around 50 meters for the largest one). Materials used around the pool again of very high quality. Also very quiet around the pool ( adult-only) and always enough sun-beds available, so one can really relax around the pool. Any "points of development": Perhaps 2 (although this will not lower the highest score I give this hotel): - offering in Italian (and to a lesser extent in the Greek) restaurant is in my opinion too limited and not up to the same standard as offered in the main restaurant. - food in specialty restaurants was served too quickly, so one felt less relaxed (while people do want to relax and take their time during dinner). Summarised, Mayia is the best holiday hotel we stayed in. Not very cheap, but certainly worth the money taking into account the hotel's offerings. Again congratulations to staff at reception, all people in main restaurant, main bar, pool bar, pool restaurant, champagne bar....... Wish I could go back as soon as possible!
