We stayed at Maca Bana for 1 week in August, with our two teenage daughters. Our villa, Mango, was beautiful,, very spacious and well equiped with all mod cons.The jaccuzzi and wrap around terrace were in constant use, with a view that you just couldnt stop looking at. This is a real chill out place, with all the right ingredients for the perfect holiday. Stunning beach, excellent restaurant and friendly helpful staff, who are always available to assist. Nixon, the general manager, is real gem, who was always ready to offer advice, make a booking or sort out any problem - not that there were any! Although the short walk to the beach is fairly steep, it didnt cause us a problem, and certainly didnt detract from our wonderful holiday.Saying that, it probably wouldnt suit disabilities or very young famillies. I think a good tip would be to hire a car, as there is nothing nearby to walk too, as the location is quite remote.

Room Tip: mango is an excellent choice for famillies as one of the most spacious banas

Paw Paw: the epitome of luxury. Great view, great room, great facilities. All staff are genuine and cheerful and Nickson answers his mobile, day or night, to solve problems. Except there aren't any problems. Anyone who whines about Wifi on holiday is an imbecile. Anyone who thinks the room is small is an imbecile. The steep slope you have to navigate down to the beach is a bit of a slog, sure, but only on the way up, and what you get, when you hit the beach, is some of the best snorkelling on the island. (Kick left and stick close to the big rock). The food at the restaurant is glorious, and we are fussy eaters. King Fish or Mahi Mahi is a must. The Sunday BBQ is to die for, with fabulous shrimp and evil ribs. Cocktail? Try the 'Yellowbird', if you've got the guts. We stayed for three nights in late June and it was roasting hot. On the morning it rained we sat in the hot tub with a cold beer and watched herons stalking crabs right under our noses. Maca Bana? Tanfastic. Book now and stop messing about.

Room Tip: Paw Paw. Insist on Paw Paw.

We have just returned from a magical holiday in Grenada. We spent our last three nights at Maca Bana, we really wish it had been more. The Bana (Paw Paw) was perfect. Clean, well equipped and very comfortable. The private sun deck with jacuzzi had the most wonderful view of the beach and the sea. We ended up eating in the restaurant every night as it was so good and the staff so friendly. We thought that it was excellent value for money - high end luxury at a very reasonable price. Really heavenly.

We have just stayed at a Paradise resort on the Paradise Island of Greanada
Our Bana (cottage) RockFig is right on the cliff edge with wonderful views of the coast all the way to St George
We spent time in the hot tub or on our balcony
The beach below is beautiful but the sea a little rough but we spent time on BBC beach or Morne Rouge as it is officially called where there is a great beach bar Rockys
We ate at the sister restaurants where the Aquarium below is probably the best on the Island and the other is the Victory at Port Louis
All under the same ownership
Nickson the general manager is charming and eager to please
We wil return

Room Tip: Discuss your room with Nickson

We last visited Maca Bana in May 2010. We had a really good time but felt a little restricted by the size of our Bana Paw Paw. We made good use of the hot tub but found the other outside space small for any real use. After we booked to come back in 2012 we realised that Michaela who was general manager in 2010 had left and wondered if this was a bad omen as she had been one of the really good things about Maca Bana, no need to have worried the new general manager Nickson is really good (not the same but equally good).
We booked Paw Paw again as the view is to die for and had seen on line that the external space had been extended. What a difference, we spent time everyday sun bathing on the huge deck and every morning had breakfast out there. It was really good to recognise most of the staff and find them just as friendly as last time.
One major change we made this time was to rent a car for the whole of our stay. This meant that we could just get in and drive or go shopping whenever we wanted. We did not make a huge amount of use of the car but it certainly helped.
All in all the changes to Paw Paw made this a better holiday than last time (and last time was really good). My wife said to me this morning ,we are packing to leave at the moment, that usually when you go back a second time it is never as good as you remember but this time it was actually better.
The other major change we made to our holiday this year was to split it between two hotels, Maca Bana being room only meant we got out often and visited restaurants as we wished. This afternoon we are driving to Spice Island Resort for a week of pampering (we had previously been to Spice in 2009) and we will see if that lives up to our great memories, review to follow.
To summarise, our room Paw Paw was better that last time, the good things are the fabulous view, Nickson and the staff and the Magazine beach. We would certainly come back.

Room Tip: For two people Paw Paw withits new deck is fabulous, a view to die for and totally private.
