Makanda exceeded expectations on all levels. Very enjoyable
9 night trip with friends

Outstanding5.0 / 5
Makanda is awesome (not the hotel's beach).
Makanda was simply awesome. We got upgraded to the ocean suite and the staff was very friendly. Makanda has an awesome atmosphere for couples. The food quality is great. One thing that I must mention is the hotel is under construction so the noise is sometimes annoying, but not a big deal. The beach is terrible since its full of rocks. The rest of the hotel is beautiful and the staff is very helpful. The rooms are very high tech and comfortable. I would come back to Makanda any day.

Amazing experience, would definitely go back. Infiniti pool and views are one of a kind.

Outstanding5.0 / 5
Fabulous hotel - grounds, room (with an exception of the bathroom which could do with updating), views, staff, food (hummus/octopus and avocado wrap/fish) and cocktails (caipirinha/g&t) were all exceptional. There are capuchin and howler monkeys, toucans and other birds whose names I don't know, plus many more in the grounds. There were some works going on during our stay (restaurant expansion) but it didn't affect our experience. The walk to the beach is just under 1km (the first half a road and the second a stepping stone path) - you can get a lift in a golf buggy half the way. We enjoyed walking to the beach every day but it is extremely steep and would not be suitable for someone with mobility issues. The village is within a kilometre and has some quite nice restaurants (Emilio's Cafe was our favourite - amazing grilled king prawns). My husband and I spent four nights here as part of our wedding anniversary trip and had an amazing time. I hope to be back!
