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

The Grand Makadi has been our holiday choice a few times and that is because it consistently offers the best value we have ever found. It is not in the smartest condition or the best food in the world but it is a great hotel that is smart enough and the food is much more than good enough. At the... 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

We arrived and we were greeted with a nice welcome and a thirst quenching drink, much needed after our long journey. Whilst checking in we were asked whether we wanted to change to the newly opened but not finished Sunwing hotel. Me being me, I didn't want to change as I had researched the Grand Makadi so we stayed, a... More

Lets get this straight from the outset this hotel is NOT 5 star. It lies somewhere between 3 star (The bathroom and some outside areas) and 4 star absolute tops. The whole place, apart from the hotel lobby is in need of a complete refurbishment. The hotel is 13 years old and I am sure it was once 5 star... More
