We were heartily welcomed and made feel at home. We were a bit disappointed with the overall cleanliness of the furniture. Would have liked a sea-facing room. We felt that privacy was a bit invaded. Otherwise we had a nice, although too short, stay.

Dear Guest, we pride ourselves in the cleanliness and overhaul appearance of our establishment. I would have appreciated it if you could have pointed out the" unexceptable state " of the apartment/ studio on check in. I apologise and the message will be conveyed to my staff.

Cute, quiet, oceanfront small hotel with comfortable beds, everything you need in the kitchen, and nice rooms owned by couple who lives upstairs. We had some minor issues. They were working on the house so our view was blocked and unable to enjoy the view or open our windows dur

Dear Cody and Crystal, I apologize that your stay at Makarios on Sea was spoilt by a couple of issues. I would like to address them. Although we planned that the scaffolding had to be removed the electrician could not complete the installation of the new heat pump on the roof due to welcome rain ( water and electricity are not good partners - as .you will know.!!) I apologised and explained the previous evening about the installation of the new shutters and repair of the blind. Our service provider had to come from Cape Town for the job. After you reported the malfunction of the microwave it was replaced the following morning. The local convenience store has limited groceries. The TV did not work because the channels on the notice on the door of the cabinet are the only ones available. You clicked on channels that were not available on the RSA TV guest house bouquet ( we actually requested the service of the technician to check the TV out). I am unaware that your towels were not changed daily - keep in mind that we live in a water scare area. We again offer our profuse apologies for your uncomfortable stay. We hope to welcome you back- with no issues.:) Antoinette and Louis

First time stay for us in Harold's Bay and we loved every second of it. The sea view was amazing, the service was excellent and the secluded area makes it feel like a real break away from normal life into a little holiday resort. Peace and calmness in the surroundings ensure fo

"Seagull has a great view on the sea and a very good size for a couple staying there"
"Upstairs rooms give better views. Ground floor rooms are a little darker and open directly onto the street"
"All rooms have an ocean view"
"Any room will give you a complete view of the ocean"
"All flats are great, though do ask for a flat that overlooks the beach"
