We had an amazing time at Makuti last year and were made to feel so welcome and relaxed by Peter and all the staff. Nothing was too much for them to arrange for us. WIll definitley be back again to this relaxing laid back hotel.

My boyfriend had stayed in Makuti a few years ago and had enjoyed it, so we decided to stay at the same place. He said the place had improved a lot: the rooms were cleaner & the breakfast was better. Just the people were just as nice and caretaking as before. We stayed for a week. Thank you Ussi, Hassan...

We stayed at Makuti and it was just what we needed. Relax and very friendly place. Clean and spacious rooms. The property is beachfront, so every day you can take long walks and on the back of the property is located the swimming pool, amazing place to be during sunset while enjoying a cocktail. Highly recommended!!!

This was in August 2015. To date we have not received the refund from Makuti and they do not answer my calls either. The...
