Carriacou Island, Grenada186 contributions109 helpful votes
The views from Maca Bana’s Paw Paw villa must be the best on the island! Simply breathtaking. I had been wanting to stay at Maca Bana for a while and was delighted to finally have the opportunity last month. My visit coincided with the reopening of The Aquarium restaurant (attached to Maca Bana) which is one of the best in Grenada. Maca Bana was the perfect choice for my short summer break! The villas are really well-equipped and comfortable. I particularly loved the private outdoor jacuzzi and spent hours just lazing around on the sun deck. In addition, Maca Bana is located on one of the most beautiful beaches in Grenada - Magazine Beach. There’s a steep hill back to the villa from the beach but it is a small price to pay for the gorgeous, practically empty beach at your doorstep. Maca Bana was blissfully quiet during my stay (because of the Coronavirus) and I found Paw Paw villa very private, just as I had hoped for. If you’re interested in more details, photos and a video, check out my blog Hopping Around the Globe in Style for a full review.

Maca Bana is perfection! This small luxury hotel is perched on a hillside overlooking the Caribbean. My lovely villa had one of the most spectacular views I’ve ever encountered in my nearly 60 years of world travels. My villa also had its own outdoor jacuzzi, huge deck, and full kitchen. Joanne, the concierge, and Uli, the owner, are terrific! They are veterans of the island and have all the resources one needs. The Aquarium Restaurant just at the foot of the resort’s hillside villas and the outside seaside bar are also owned by Uli and are a huge amenity of the resort. Great food, two large bars with extensive wine cellar, and full staff are available daily (except Mondays), and fantastic live music is presented on designated days. The beach (Magazine Beach) is one of the most gorgeous and pristine on the planet, and the swimming is sublime. Maca Bana has the huge advantage of being off the beaten path of tourist-laden Grande Anse, but is still very close and convenient to all points on the southern side of the island. What a fantastic place! I can’t wait to come back!

Boutique hotels are so hit or miss, but this was clearly a hit. Nickson went out of his way to make certain our family was taken care of by having Ricky, the taxi driver, take us wherever we wanted with a cell phone to contact him, fresh fruit and food upon arrival, and they even found a way to get us a tour guide at the last minute when Island Routes cancelled our tour less than 12 hours before. HIGHLY RECOMMEND

Maybe not for people who want a full service hotel, but great alternative for people who like renting a villa but having a bit of support. Great location close to the airport on a beautiful nearly empty beach. Very good restaurant in Aquarium adjacent (same owner). Nicely updated and maintained cottage-villas. Clustered together but positioned so they feel private. Private hot tub and almost always empty pool were nice to have. However, the people make the difference - Joanne, Nixon and the diligent, friendly cleaning staff made all the difference. With the small number of guests, you feel like they get to know your family quickly and want to help in more ways than just making sure you have towels. In short, if you like to make your own breakfast, be out and about for lunch and go to different nice restaurants for dinner, this is a fantastic option. If you need all inclusive 3 meals, then this is not for you. PS unless you are in poor health or elderly, ignore the comments about the walk to the beach. it's a little steep but literally about under a minute. our two year old did it no problem.

We were so delighted with our stay at Maca Bana. We had never been to Grenada before and now can't wait to return. Maca Bana was beyond expectations and it was the little things that made a difference ….the stocked fridge when we arrived, the use of a local cell phone, the quality appliances and equipment and the friendliness of all the staff, in particular Jackson and Joanne. We stayed in Avocado and at first were disappointed that we didn't have a full sea view from the deck, however being able to listen to the sea, the palm trees and the birds made up for it. Be sure to visit the bench on the top of the hill to see the sun set! FYI, the waves on the beach can be strong so be careful and if you are looking to buy spices to bring home, purchase in the Spice market in St Georges rather than on the beach, they are much cheaper.
