We spent one night at Makana Resort and can't complain about anything. We received a friendly welcome and the facilities were good.

For the second year we stayed at Makana Resort to enable us to attend the Grandparents Day at Kingswood. We were allocated Chalet 7 which was much larger than the accommodation used last year. Very comfortable, clean and with oceans of hot water. We awoke ready to face a host of lively little people.

Pleasant stay but nothing was ready when we got there, no tv channels worked no restaurant and no microwave or stove in a self catering chalet.
