We decided to have our 1st Christmas abroad as our 2 children were abroad. We booked the Makardi spar with trepidation as we knew nothing about the resort. We had 2 junior siutes for my husband and I and for my mum. The rooms were exeptional....beautifully finished.... total luxuary . Bath towels & beech bag.... big tv ( not a lot of choice of English channels)fridge--replenished every day, and a huge bed. The hotel complex was spotless and beautiful,the service around the pools was faultless.... as many coffees and drinks as you could manage! Breakfast buffet was amazing...so much choice. The option of so many places to eat in the evenings made "all inclusive " so much nicer and varied,we ate somewhere differnt every night. all the staff were helpfull and polit. The whole complex was spotlessly clean. Great local cocktails...mmmmmmm! the negatives..well the posh pool bar and the lobby bar was not part of the "all inclusive deal",which meant there was very little atmosphere in the lobby... and the beautifully furnished pool bar was always empty... what a waste. The wi fi was a bit iffy, which was a shame as we wanted to skype our girls. Very little Christmas atmosphere.. same CD playing all the time!! hehehe The Gala Dinner was Lovely... but a bit pricey....and we had to pay for water and coffee. The Asian resteraunt was superb,as was the steak resteraunt.
We spent the whole week by the pool, we didnt sunbath on the beach...it was very clean, but stoney and gritty.... a lovely pier to go snorkling from though. There was a little bit of work going on at the hotel( which we were told about) this did not eefect our pleasure at all.
I would definitely go to this resort again and stay at the Makadi Spa hotel.
