How to Get There
We enjoyed staying in a two bedroom cottage close to the ocean and outfitted with every possible convenience. There was a hot tub in back, fully equipped kitchen, large tv in each bedroom, and a superior room service. The Aquarium restaurant located just down the hill belongs to this complex. The food there is fresh and delicious. We even ordered a home cooked meal in our bungalow. There is a small but pleasant beach outside of the aquarium which was pleasant and quiet. The price for the season is a bit steep but off-season, we understand, is a bargain. We stayed for a relaxing week and would do it again. Close to the airport but a bit far from St. George's town.
We live in Grenada close to the town of St. George's and wanted to find a staycation location for a birthday weekend. We could not have found a better location..we checked in on Saturday and left on Monday. Rooms had soft cosy linens, the entire cabana was clean and fresh, ac worked perfectly, kitchen was outfitted with everything we could have wanted to cook for ourselves when we wanted to and Aquarium delivered delicious dinner when we didn't want to cook. When we had enjoyed the cabana to the fullest a 2 minute walk down to the beach and a snorkel was another fun option. Thank you to Uli, Nixon and Joann for welcoming us and making our stay so relaxing and fun..just what the doctor ordered!!
We visited as a group of 5 at Maca Bana for 3 nights, and our reservation process was seamless. They were accommodative enough to help us get an additional room when we had an extra guest who made a last minute reservation.
The property itself is conveniently located about 7 minutes away from the airport. The staff, especially Nickson/Nexon is just amazing. I believe it's a family run business and they do an amazing job at maintaining the overall property.
It pains me to give them 3 stars, but that is primarily because we had reserved the Mango Villa, specifically because of it's view and we wanted to experience hanging out with friends, chilling in the Jacuzzi in the evening (drinking), admiring the amazing ocean views. Sadly, the Jacuzzi wasn't working for the duration of our stay (something to do with power/transformer).
I wish the management would have either given us a discount OR could have arranged for an alternative room. In all fairness, we did not ask for a discount, because I personally try to avoid such conversations as it ruins my vacay mood, and so expected this message to come from the management.
Regardless, cannot take away the amazing hospitality and service we got from the Maca Bana team, so thanks for that!
Suggestion to future tourists - please confirm all the equipment is working in your room, especially if you reserved it for the view etc.
Stayed here for a week, and what a great week it was. Stayed at the PawPaw Villa which was right at the top of the hill. The walk up to the top was greated with the most amazing view you could wish for.
Being at the bottom of the island in a very quiet area was perfect to escape the hustle and bustle of the town with the option of a short drive down to the main beach area.
The beach by Maca Bana is extremely quiet if you want to relax, it is slightly rocky which is perfect if you want to snorkel, and Maca Bana provide you with snorkel gear.
The pool has a really good view too which was never crowded so you could easily relax.
If you were to do your own cooking the cooking facilities were great with so many utensils, it is definitely a home from home.
The views were magnificent, the accommodations were comfortable, the beach was beautiful, the restaurant food was tasty, and the staff was friendly and helpful. Sitting in the hot tub on the deck overlooking the ocean or swimming in the infinity pool with similar views was very relaxing. It was also very nice to have drinks at the beach bar overlooking the water. Also, having a kitchen to prepare meals is a major benefit and cost saver. Excursions to Grand Anse Beach, going on boat rides, and taking a hike to Seven Sisters Falls are all a must.
