Wow what a awesome setting and place!! Only problem is that our stay was not long enough!! We will come back soon!! We had a flat tyre, and did not even ask, but the owner supplied us with a pump to help!! Service excellence!!

We stayed in the Dolphin apartment and we had a lovely time. The room was well equipped (self-catering) and had a lovely bathroom and main bedroom. We cooked one of the nights and it was just lovely sitting on the patio watching the waves. This is a wonderful place to visit and I highly recommend it to all travellers !

We stayed for one night at this self catering on the beach haven and wish we could stay longer! You do not make a mistake booking and staying at Makarios on Sea, especially if you could have the room with balcony.

My husband and I visited Macarios during our two week holliday in the garden route. What a beautiful place. With indestructible views. We loved the visit in Herolds bay. And with George only 18km away the is plenty to do. I will definitely visit them again.

The place was good and i will most probably used it again. However, you should consider introducing breakfast as part of the package. It would make the stay even worthwhile, especially for those that are therefore for leisure.

The apartments are clean and tide and although self-catering, attention was given to the smallest detail and everything that you can think of was supplied...it was like staying at home. There...
