My wife and I spent 5 days at Makanda by the Sea and we truly enjoyed our stay. We loved that the hotel is in the middle of the jungle, giving us prime access to the surrounding wildlife. We had monkeys visiting our villa's patio every morning, or taking care of the entertainment while we were having dinner.
I was impressed by how clean everything was. The staff does a great job at keeping everything tidy, in addition to being very friendly and helpful.
The food in the hotel is excellent, better than the couple of places we tried outside of the hotel. The restaurant is designed to look like you're sitting on top of the trees and you can enjoy the environment (the surrounding jungle, and the ocean in the background) while enjoying a meal.
Overall, it would be very difficult to not recommend this place.
