This is the first time I have written a review on any holiday but felt compelled to do so after returning home from our honeymoon at The Grand Makadi hotel. We had already booked this with our wedding money when we looked at some of the poor reviews on here. We were concerned to say the least that we had... More

We have just returned from a weeks stay at the Grand Makadi, 12-18th July. Upon arrival at the airport we were left a little complexed by the cost of the visa. Our travel agent had told us to pay $25 US each, which we exchanged especially. We then read some reviews that they accept Euro and Stirling. Anyway, the actual... More

First of all...this is not a 5 star hotel! It may have been originally when it opened, but now id say it was 3-4 star! Saying that, if your looking for a bargain getaway, to relax and enjoy the sun, if you get a good deal here then you cant go wrong! Think i paid around £700 for two people... More

Before I talk about the hotel, please don't pay more than £17 entering Egypt, I'd been told 15 but apparently it's gone up. On entering the airport terminal pay at the bank Not to the touts in front who are overcharging. Don't know how this is allowed but heyho. And it was an horrendous experience getting through passport control like... More

I stayed at The Grand Makadi in March 2014 whilst booking a very cheap last minute deal with a colleague. The hotel was fairly accommodating, but the quality of the amenities were average at best. The hotel benefitted from the access to the neighbouring hotel and the availability to eat at the number of restaurants within the Makadi Bay Area.... More

We stayed in this hotel for a week at Easter, we went because we wanted sun and weren't bothered about the place itself. We were surprised to find that we had been upgraded once we got there, the room itself was a little run down but it was a room which gave a great impression. I don't think I have... More
