Hotel Makarios

Reviewed 15 August 2017

Me and my boyfriend stayed here for 10 days for our first holiday together. When we arrived I wasn't happy with our room only because of the balcony was too small and overlooked the pool so wasn't very private. Pedro on reception who is an asset to the hotel made our holiday! He changed our room we was able to view 3 rooms the next day and choose which one we wanted. Once we had moved rooms we was very happy the room was bigger and the balcony a lot nicer view. The food and lack of all inclusive drink choice was the only downfall for the hotel. The food sometimes was swimming in oil and hardly had any fresh fruit or desert options. We was very disappointed with the food and there was no cocktails on the all all inclusive alcoholic drinks just beer and wine. The pool was kept clean and tidy and the bar staff were friendly. The location is perfect and Kamari strip of bars and restaurants is fantastic lots of variety. I left my house keys in my room when we checked out. I emailed the hotel 'Pedro' and he responded he would post my keys to me in England free of charge because they had found them. I have received the keys finally in the post and am very happy that Pedro sent them free of charge and kept in contact via email. So thank you Pedro!

Room Tip: rooms on the left of the hotel have bigger balconys

Very clean and comfortable hotel with plenty of sun beds by the pool, only 200 yards from sea, but 10 minute walk to the nicest beaches. Food was healthy and tasty although if you're a regular all inclusive traveller in Spain you may find the menu more limited. Loved the squid! Not too many choices of alcohol included. Staff were charming and friendly as were the guests we spoke to. Within easy reach of capital and a hike to ancient Thera. Cheaper hire car rates away from hotel. All in all one of the most enjoyable stays.

Room Tip: First floor rooms offer better views

Good location with a bit of a walk to the beach, bars and nightlife. Stayed in June so no children around the pool, nice and peaceful and no waiting in the restaurant! The manager is great also the bar staff. Rooms are small clean and comfortable no complaints. In fact we loved it and will most definitely return. The all inclusive is basic when it comes to the drinks so a tip take a few bottles of your favourite tipple with you from the airport as it is very expensive to buy whilst there!

Quite small hotel far from everything, expensive. We had a good time here last summer, and the food was really good with the unlimited wine from tap being my favorite part
When we arrived we got a very small room that wasn't like the photos at all. We had paid for all inclusive but regretted, as the breakfast was unsatisfactory, whilst the dinner and lunch was more interesting. One of the waitresses always greeted my boyfriend very kindly, introducing the dishes to him one by one, but gave me a horrible look and did not want to serve me.
The door to the room we were originally given didn't lock, and there was barely a mattress or covers. And for $150 per night! Luckily we were "upgraded" after presenting our confusion to the kind manager. He helped us with atv rental, sightseeing, and such, but was very suggestive and opinionated on when we should do things and how. Still appreciated his help and I recommend the hotel for its dinner and manager.
