Makanda by the Sea is by far one of the most beautiful places I’ve been to. I was there April 5th & 6th, 2021. Everything is perfectly thought out with the guests in mind. Me and 7 friends went for a birthday dinner and a spa day the following day. The dinner & drinks were amazing. I had the lobster ravioli and every bite was perfect & the ambiance is everything. The following day felt like my honeymoon all over again. The staff is so attentive and you don’t have to think about anything other than taking it all in. Each part of the day was timed out perfectly. We started at the pool where we had drinks & relaxed in the crystal clear water with a view that was to die for. Then we went to this beautiful lanai with yet another amazing view that was unmatched. We had this area all to ourselves. This is where the jacuzzi room & sauna are located & it’s hard to believe but this view exceeded the previous one and the weather was great. From there we were taken down to the message room with yet another breathtaking view. There I experienced the best message I’ve ever had. I didn’t want it to end. After that we had lunch. I ordered shrimp pasta & Caesar salad which was delicious & good portions. Then we went back to the pool area & finished off the day by swimming & having drinks the way we started. This was the last night of our trip & the perfect way to end our vacation. I travel often, go to many places & love luxury experiences. I’ve been to Tulum, Maui, Orlando & Costa Rica in the last 2 months and I can say my heart is here, at Makanda by the Sea. I can’t wait to go back in September. This was a 5 Star experience from start to finish. You must see it! Amber ~…
It was an amazing stay. Everything was great. We had the Wow suite and it really is Wow. The design is exceptional and unique. You live in a rainforest in a very modern room. The pool is very nice and stylish. An amazing sunset can be watched from the pool. The staff are friendly and the food is delicious. If you want something unusual and impressive, I definitely recommend
The Makanda by the Sea exceeded our expectations. It is conveniently located near Manuel Antionio Parque, but feels very secluded and private. The two infinity pools were absolutely stunning with beautiful views of the ocean and tropical terrain. We saw sloths, monkeys, birds, lizards and hermit crabs on our daily walks around the resort. The beach was private with nice quiet lounge swings made for two. Our suite was newly remodeled and incredibly nice. The food and drinks were delicious. The staff spoiled us with their attentive service. I highly recommend this hotel.
Lovely place with super friendly and attentive staff - they paid attention to my every request! veeeeery clean and stylish rooms! I definitely highly recommend it and really hope to come back again as the level of relaxation was way beyond my expectations!:) Thank you for the magic holidays and wish you prosperity!!!
I stayed in Makanda Hotel for a couple of nights on March 2021 and my experience was the best ever. The architecture is outstanding, the rooms crafted in every detail and the ocean view is amazing. During Friday they had live music and dinner was great! I will sure be back.
