Stunning 5 star hotel in a 'To die for setting'. Spotlessly clean. Attentive staff. A white sand beach that extends fir ever in both directions. Food is outstanding! Beautiful pool areas (Noisy at 4pm fir the daily pool party).

We originally booked a Jr.suite A1, but what was given us was a room overlooking the receiving area and pick up point for garbage, laundry etc. Lots of noise and sewage smells and diesel trucks running all the time they are parked. We first requested a change of rooms at the front desk, and were told a further $500.00 would... More

The is our second trip to the Macao, we like it because it is small easy to get to the beach. The one person we loved, Roberto, works at El Patio for breakfast and dinner, he makes your dining so special. Roberto has a wonderful smile and works very hard at making everyone smile and laugh, he has been with... More
