Just spent a gorgeous week at Makekal Beach Resort and it was EVERYTHING!! The staff was absolutely incredible…thank you to Luis at the bell desk, thank you to Veronica the spa manager and Jesus Brito for the amazing spa treatments…the best! And lastly Manuel who is the star of Las Olas and Fuego…talk about a class act! He was amazing!! We will definitely be back to enjoy the beautiful hotel grounds and gorgeous service :)

Tropical paradise that misses romantically

BBH5858 (Fairfield, Connecticut) on Feb 15, 2024

Beautiful resort with one big flaw - no adult only pool. There are four pools at this resort and the nicest one is called Las Olas, which has an infinity edge overlooking the ocean. Unfortunately this is the pool that the 10% of guests with young children all choose to use. So almost all lounge chairs are saved every morning with dozens of kids toys and floats and then all day the pool area is filled with jumping, running, shrieking, crying kids. So adults looking for resort tranquility have to retreat to one of the other pools which don’t have ocean views. If Las Olas pool was designated adults only, then families could use the other three pools where the lack of an ocean view wouldn’t matter as the focus is all about the kids.

Disappointing experience

La_Paysana on Feb 14, 2024

So disappointed with this hotel. The reception staff was so rude and non accommodating it was almost uncomfortable making any kind of requests. For the price I paid (over $400 per night) it is not worth it at all, you should just stay at a Dreams or Hilton and pay the same. One of the restaurants was very good but also very over priced. The best thing about the hotel is the location right on a street filled with restaurants and 5th avenue about 2 blocks down.

Amazing resort and vacation!

Shirley H on Feb 14, 2024

We loved our stay at the Mahekal Resort, we had a ocean front room which was amazing, there was four of us sharing our room, room was a good size, best beds we have ever slept on while on vacation, room was cleaned daily, plunge pool always maintained, staff from wait staff, bartenders, cleaning, gardeners etc were amazing as well, we truly felt spoiled while staying here. Security staff did a really good job as well, always monitoring the beach area day and night we never felt unsecured. There were four of us in our group and we all felt the same. Our waiters and bartenders were truly amazing. We would definitely return but would choose a room away from the beach next time even though we loved our room but since the resort is on a public beach there was a lot of loud noise throughout the night on several nights but the rooms that were away from the beach were very peaceful. Overall our stay was my favourite resort stay in a very long time. Food was great as well.
