After a bad start to the holiday in the grand Makardi hotel we were transferred to the Makardi sunwing water world where the staff could not have been more helpful. There was building work going on but it did not interfere with us. The staff were very good especially if you were polite however you often had to wait to be attended to at reception. The food was ok you could always find something to eat even my very fussy sister, each morning you could get freshly made omelettes and crepe's plus fresh fruit cereals and breads, they also did fried eggs to order, lunch varied depending on your choice of venue and the evening meal was also served in several restaurant some of which you had to book. The pool and swimming facilities were brilliant from a lazy river to several water shutes, a small children's play pool that we wanted to go in and for us grown ups an infinity pool and a wave pool , whilst the beach was only a 5 minute walk where you could go scuba diving to see the wonderful fish. It had an abundance of sun beds and the waiters came around regularly to replace your drinks. On The down side you had to pay to hire a tea pack which included tea coffee sugar milk cups and a kettle and there were a lot of steps, on the whole I would go back but not in school holidays and I would definitely take a smallish child so that I could play in the children's pool. Again I must say that the staff could not have done more for us and all that let it down was the food but you could always find something!
