This was my first stay at this resort but it won't be my last. My husband and I had a wonderful time. The staff was very friendly especially Desilyn who managed the restaurant and LynDonna and Terry who are the bartenders. They truly made us feel welcomed and at home. The beach is awesome and the food was great. They managed to incorporate local cuisine in almost every meal. We met other vacationers and after a while we felt like a little family. We were very saddened to leave and felt like we were leaving friends and family. I read many reviews regarding this resort prior to going and most were fair but some were misleading. Let me tell you, if you visit this jewel in the sun, you will have a wonderful, relaxing vacation - and you will never forget it.
Maca Bana is a wonderful boutique resort. They are about 8 minutes from the airport and yet you do not hear airplanes constantly flying over you. If you are looking for warm weather, a white sandy beach, a breath-taking view and solitude, then Maca Bana is for you. If you enjoy snorkeling, then Magazine beach is the place you want to be. Our stay was quite enjoyable. The staff is warm and friendly and if you need anything, all you need to do is ask. The onsite restaurant, The Aquarium, is situated right off Magazine beach, so you can dine and enjoy the lovely ambiance as you listen to the ocean waves.
They do not have a gym at t he moment (however, one will be available in the not so distant future). Nor do they have a spa or a large pool. There is a bit of a climb from the base of the property to the villas; that alone can be a daily workout. A walk on the beach or a swim in the ocean can add to your daily workout. If you feel like you are in the mood for spa services, all you need to do is ask and they will be happy to have someone come to you. The pool they have is small to medium sized, however clean and serene.
This trip was booked last minute and when my husband and I arrived, even though it was 7:00am, we were able to check in. Rooms are very comfortable, and we were able to control our own AC unit. The purpose of this trip was to celebrate our honeymoon and my husband and I were speaking to the Checkin agent, Carol, who was extremely helpful and friendly, we advised the purpose of our trip and after arriving back to the hotel later on in the day, we were welcomed with roses on the bed, which was beautiful! Pool and bar/breakfast area was comfortable and the very amazing!!! Grounds were clean and the staff were welcoming and always friendly
Stayed just the one night but should have been longer. Very welcoming hotel, run by the owners. Lovely big and clean rooms - my bathroom was cleaner and better than the all inclusive I was in the night before. Nice restaurants nearby, very near the airport.
The beachfront location is superb. The villas are excellent, and very private.
The staff not only provide outstanding service, but are some of the friendliest hotel staff that I have ever encountered !
The hotel is right on the BBC which is a beautiful beach which doesn't get crowded. The hotel grounds are well kept and the rooms are extremely clean and have a daily clean.
All the staff at the hotel including the management are very friendly and helpful.
I would highly recommend this hotel to all age groups.
The Gem is ideal because of its value and location. All rooms come with a complete kitchen and there is a excellant grocery store near by at the Spiceland Mall, so one can cook or choose one's meals within the hotel or its sister hotel, the Kalingo. It is located on one of the finest beaches in Grenada and 5 minutes from the finest...the Grand Anise. The staff was extremely helpful and accomodating with everything from wake up calls to recommending and arranging wonderful tours.
The rooms are cozy. This is not a luxury hotel but the beds are comfortable and the bedroom air conditioner kept the room cool. Think more cozy lake cottage. Our garden view room came with a terrace that gave us excellant sea views and magnificent sunsets. It was quiet and we both slept very well in the beds provided. Daily made service provided us with clean towels and freshly made beds. I would not hesitate to book there again.
All if the hotels on the beach are twice and three times the price. My view from the room was the most incredible view I've ever had from a hotel. U see the entire bay. A double rainbow came out. It was amazing. A perfect weekend with my lovely lady. U walk to the beach in less than 5 mins, and you can eat at the flamboyant which had a wonderful menu with live music. Next door wa my fav place on the beach, it was a beach bar with a croquet field and bochie balls. Sooo much fun. Recomend this for a nice getaway if u don't wish to pay 500 at the beach resorts. It's a great price at this place
