Majestic Colonial vs. Majestic Elegance

What is the difference? Are these hotels on essentially the same property? What is the price difference?

Thanks.

I was wondering the same thing. Can you use both proerties if staying at either, or are they completely seperate?

MC and ME are run as two separate resorts. You are free to wander the grounds of both but your wrist bands are different and you are restricted to using your own resort's facilities.

Some facilities (kid's clubs, all night snack bar, casino, disco, etc.) are shared.

Thanks. What is the difference between the two? Which is better and what is the price difference? We're three families with kids between 2 and 15.

We were also considering the Iberostar Bavaro, but it may be too pricey for our companions. Any opinions?

Thanks.

For price differences you will have to look that up yourself which will depend on when your going and from where. Out of Boston M.E. is the cheaper price even thou M.E. is the newer resort and geared more towards adults.

Hi Hockeymum, The Elegance seems a bit more upscale and, at least to me, more romantic for couples while the Colonial seems more geared towards families. We have been to both within the last 6 months. In August, my wife and I went with our 2 children, 15 and 17, to the Colonial and we loved it. In November, just my wife and I went to the Elegance and we had, probably, our best vacation ever. You really cannot go wrong with either one, my wife and I just preferred the Elegance. The Elegance is a little more pricey but, as I said, is more upscale and is the newer of the two. The service and attitude of the staff at both was amazing. If you choose either of these two resorts, rest assured, you will have a fantastic vacation!!

I saw that the disco, kids club, and snack bar are shared, what about the pools? Can you swim in both pools or do you have to stay at Elegance or Colonial? Also, is there room service at Elegance or only for the people who upgrade to the Club level? Anyone tried out the golf- any comments?

It's sort of like asking what is the difference between Ford and Mercury -- pretty much the same under the hood, even look the same--just a few minor esthetic differences. Really no big difference between the two other than the Elegance has the Elegance club (AO) within the resort.

Between the Majestic and the Elegance I would select which ever is the cheaper price -- would only pay more for the elegnace club.

Cheers, Lance

Hi, I have been to the Elegance twice and am going back in June. My wife and I prefer the Elegance as it is more for couples and not for kids.

The colonial has more families. The elegance during the day is quieter and the pools are more relaxing due to the lack of kids.

The Colonial is more active at night as the casino is over there as well.

if you book Elegance, can you use the pools at the Colonial?

Yes you can use the pools, as well as the grounds, beach, and even sit in on the shows. Just not the bars and restaurants.
