"The toughest part was leaving, as Macabana became our home away from home." Trip Adviser "We hope to return to Grenada someday, and if we do, I can’t imagine staying anywhere else other than Macabana." Trip Adviser
Undoubtedly the single most luxurious and unspoilt place to stay in Grenada.
The Macabana complex offers fantastic modern accommodation nestled in finely sculptured tropical gardens a mere stones throw from one of the most secluded and unspoilt golden beaches imaginable. Despite the superb world class Aquarium restaurant that sits on the beach below, the Macabana gardens are a tranquil haven where we enjoyed spending hours quietly relaxing by the private pool before wandering down to the restaurant to partake of some truly fine dining. The views across the Caribbean sea are truly breath taking, the beautiful golden beach stretches away into the distance, perfect for wandering along it at sunset before returning to the allure of the Aquarium which in the evening develops it's own unique vibrant rhythm with tasteful live music which we found captivating, especially the cocktails from the beach-side bar. To have facilities like this within walking distance of some of the most modern, well equipped accommodation in the Caribbean gave us an unforgettable experience and an urge to return again very soon.
Stayed August 2009, travelled as a couple
After reading all the other good reviews about Maca Bana, my wife and I we were excited to see it for ourselves on our 10th anniversary vacation - and we weren't disappointed. What an amazing place. We stayed at the one bedroom Paw Paw, and we couldn't have been happier (what a view!). Everything is first class, yet in an understated way, which we like.
The villas and surrounding grounds are immaculate. We loved the hot tub and the pool. We can't say enough nice things about Michaela Karger, the general manager, and the entire staff. Michaela was tremendously helpful as we planned the trip, and in arranging excursions and other activities. Exceedingly friendly, cheerful, and a true professional. Every little detail was taken care of (she even burned a copy of one of the CD’s that we enjoyed listening to in the villa). Often we would stop by the office to ask a quick question, and we would end up talking for 15 minutes. You can't get that kind of personal interaction at a mega resort.
Having the airport nearby was convenient, and there weren't many flights, so noise wasn't an issue. (I actually got a kick out of seeing the occasional Virgin or BA 747 taking off.) We loved the Aquarium and Magazine Beach. The walk back up is steep, but I guess the previous reviews sort of prepared us for it, and it wasn’t that bad. We ate out a few times (Beach House, True Blue Bay, LaSagesse), but had all of our breakfasts in, as it was hard to pull ourselves away from that view and the beautiful kitchen.
Grenada itself is spectacular, and the people are some of the nicest we’ve met anywhere. We did two tours with Mandoo. I would highly recommend him. What a terrific guy and a true goodwill ambassador for Grenada. We also did the Scaramouche fly-sail trip to the Grenadines. A bit pricey, but you won’t regret it. Swimming with the turtles in the Tobago Cays was almost worth the price alone, and it’s something we’ll never forget. The toughest part was leaving, as Maca Bana became our home away from home. We hope to return to Grenada someday, and if we do, I can’t imagine staying anywhere else other than Maca Bana.
