We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights. Although we'd booked a 2 bedroom suite, upon arrival we were told that we were given two side-by-side 1 bedroom suites as the 2 bedrooms were all booked up. Since our teens are old enough to stay on their own, this was perfectly fine, and in fact worked better as we didn't... More

Great location, a view of the castle over the bay, a pleasant stroll into the old town, good breakfast. Nice snack bar and pool. Lovely staff. What is there to not like? Our suite has a huge bed, a nice lounge/ kitchen and a wide useful balcony. What not to like?

Just over 1km from the old town, this hotel was perfect for our 5 night stay. A good sized swimming pool, and sunbathing area that gets very good sun all day. The staff are friendly and welcoming. The spa offers quite a few treatments, my wife and I had an hours massage which was good quality. But we didn't see... More

We had the best holiday here, and loved the hotel which was superb, with a great breakfast that was included. We had a large room with the biggest, comfiest bed, automatic blinds, jacuzzi bath and a huge balcony overlooking the sea, with a small cove/ beach across the road. The old town is just a 10/15 min walk away next... More

We stayed here in early season, so that what with that and the economic climate, we were two of only a few guests. Despite that, there were no shortcuts in offering us the best service. Breakfast had one of the widest ranges of great food you can think of with no compromises in reducing the offering because of the few... More

The staff were lovely and helpful throughout our 10 day stay, we stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment. It was had a fully equipped kitchenette, sitting area, very large balcony and very comfortable beds. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Macaris and would recommend it to families visiting the town.

All of the rooms are sea view, and the size of rooms are so big, especiakly for suites. When I opened window, I found a large dining table and sofa. What an amazing terrace? They prepared welcome fruits and a bottle of white wine, which is not cheap one. You must like this resort. It is not located in old... More

Pillows are most comfortable! Place is really lovely. You will need a car, as there is very little in the area without walking for 20-30 mins. Very quiet for families. Breakfast is really good too. Very nice people.
