    Mackaya Bella was able to accommodate on the last minute when space was still available. The room is equipped with everything that is needed. The breakfast was awesome. I would recommend guests and visitors coming to Durban to stay at Mackaya Bella.

    Hi. Yes, if they are able to have 2 people in the same room, ie. share a double bed. We only have 7 double rooms, so if they are singles there won't be enough. Kind regards, Nicki
