Makana is a stunning property with an incredibly attentive staff.
Makana was perfect for hosting a family of 10! The grounds were stunning and kept immaculately. The staff paid attention to every single detail. Our needs were constantly anticipated and met! It was fabulous!
AMAZING WEEK IN PARADISE
We had an amazing week at Makana on Discovery Bay. The house is incredible; so beautiful and luxurious. The grounds and amenities were perfect for a family of adults and kids; there was plenty to keep us occupied for the week. Tennis, a gym, lots of pool and sand toys for the kids, as well as kayaks, stand up paddle boards and snorkel equipment kept us busy. The staff at this house is the most amazing part. They are all the loveliest people, who genuinely seem happy to be with you and make your stay the most enjoyable it could be. Devon and Kevin worked so hard all week to make sure that we had everything that we needed and that the kids had their smoothies everyday. Marlon and Kayla made sure that we had the best meals & snacks each day & Patrick made meal time easy and so pleasant with 4 kids. Maisie and Juliet quietly kept the house immaculate and Henry kept the grounds beautiful and made the best bonfire and Sm'ores party. BEST VACATION EVER!!! Thanks to the staff.
Most beautiful setting with most amazing staff
We booked this vacation last minute, a week & a half before arrival. Upon driving through the property gates, we glanced around & were really excited, the outside of the villa (& tennis court) looked beautiful. There were 10 staff waiting to greet us, everyone was so friendly & welcoming. As soon as we met the staff we walked through the door & my first words were "oh my goodness!" The interior was even more beautiful than I imagined, we could see the beach & the pool, & I truly was floored. As beautiful as the house was, as comfortable as the cool air conditioned rooms were, it was the soft sand private beach, the pristine pool & the staff that made this vacation extraordinary. The chefs cooked us the most delicious meals & hors d'oeuvres while the butlers mixed up tasty cocktails & were constantly asking if we wanted refills or if there was anything they could do for us. Everyone was working from sun-up to late in the evening, cleaning, preparing & pampering.
Perfect getaway girls trip
The house was clean, the staff was amazing, pictures do not do this place justice. One of the most relaxing vacations I have taken. Would rebook this property again.
Best family vacation ever
Villa was immaculate, staff were brilliant and the weather obliged. We have done 5 Villa vacations so far (4 in Jamaica) and this has been the best by far. Some of it is down to price (more expensive), but I think it is more than that, and both the villa and staff are truly exceptional.
Thanks to the beautiful accomadations & staff, this was a perfect trip
The house exceeded our expectations as did the friendly, attentive staff. This was a true vacation for the children and the parents alike. I would definitley recommend this house to friends and family.
