Just spent 4 days at the Macakizi Hotel (July 2014). Let's start with the plus of the hotel:
- Location: amazing view and beautiful gardens
- Food: breakfast, lunch and diner (the 3 meals are delicious)
Now the minuses:
- There is a nightclub close to the hotel which means that if you happen to have a room exposed to the noise you dont sleep until the music stops at 3AM. I complained about the noise. I was first given earplugs and they had only a pair left because they gave away all the earplugs. The next day I was told that the hotel complained about the noise and it will not happen again...... It happened again and again. As you will notice in the other client posts a few of us had to bear with this annoying music. The client relationship manager promised us a free dinner to compensate but that promised never materialized.
When I asked for a room change I was told that the hotel is full. I found out that it was not the case by calling reception and pretending I am a potential client looking for a room.
- The staff is curtuous and some speak english but they will never step out of their lines. While on the beach, I order still water and ice cubes. It turned out that the ice cube machine had a failure and engine oil leaked into the ice cubes. When I told the bar manager about the incident he refused to offer us a free bottle of water.
Overall: For that kind of pricing you would expect a better service/experience. I would not recommend this hotel. The Macakizi is a tourist factory and lost its authenticity: "if you are not happy another tourist will take your room...."
