An advantage of our family booking was that we could use the restaurants within the Makadi Mall as part of our all inclusive package. We had been advised to tell the waiters that our drinks were also all inclusive and made a point of explaining this to the waiting staff. We chose to dine at the Golden Dragon, the waiter... More

I have reviewed the Sunwing seperately but, as we were accomodated in thefamily Star, we have reviewed the two seperately. Our suite [room 301] was large and comfortable. we only had two problems. 1. The air conditioning This was very underpowered... More

A number of years ago we stayed at Makadi Palace hotel and this time we felt comfortable staying at Makadi Family Star as it is run by the same group. I have to say we were a little concerned having read some of the other reviews as it appeared some of the standards may have slipped. We travelled during the... More

The accommodation is fine but there were a number of things broken etc. and it was slow to be repaired. The bar at family star was never manned until we made a fuss and by 2nd week was fine. Having been on many a all inclusive holiday I was surprised to fin in some of the restaurants over 90% of... More

My family and I stayed here for a week over Christmas this year. The resort looks spectacular, the pools and palm trees and well maintained buildings. It is very well maintained, on the outside. However, when it comes to the rooms things are definitely lacking attention. The hallway and bathroom of our room had plaster work peeling and a very... More

This hotel ticket all the boxes and left little to be desired. The two floor, two bedroom, two bathroom apartment had plenty of room for myself and the three friends I travelled with. And the best part was the upstairs balcony/terrace where we would start our mornings with breakfast in the sun. The staff were really friendly and always there... More

My wife and I and our 3 teenage boys all enjoyed the resort and staying at the Family Star. The room was a good size and was comfortable. A few things did not work but were quickly and effectively repaired. We found our room to be very quiet and were very rested after our weeks holiday. We enjoyed the large... More
