We had a fantastic holiday here. The weather is beautifully hot but not unbearable. The hotel boasts the best beach in Makadi with a stunning coral reef within feet of the shore. The staff are very friendly and the whole places is clean and tidy. The food is your usual all inclusive fair but with enough variety to stop it...

Food 9/10. Clean, lots of it and enough variety for a week. Great selection of vegetables and salads everyday. Advice is to go to the smaller restaurant in the new block. From the beach looking back - the new block is on the left. From the entrance door it is the right. Stick with the cheaper rooms - they're bigger...
