Room - Ground floor, edged with a tidy little hedge - never felt overlooked. A good size room with everything you need (except a kettle - but this is not self catering), shower cubicle as well -nice. Although we were next to the stairs the room was very quiet. Beds were very hard and very comfortable. Air con was included...

We have just returned from a fabulous holiday at the Makis. We travelled with two children (16 & 10). The whole hotel was spotlessly clean, rooms spacious (I did have my concerns before arriving that we would be squashed as staying in one room but shouldn't have worried), staff extremely friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were great, loads of choice...

Loved the position of the hotel and the staff are lovely. If you are a couple or in an adult only group I would say it is a great place to stay. If you have children I would avoid this hotel and go to another in Skala. Dennis does not like children even though he has children himself. Dennis needs...
