The Grand Makadi infrastructure is a little tired, but exceptionally clean, however it is more than made up for by the superb quality of the food and the fantastic staff. This was our 3rd time here and we normally don't go anywhere twice.You get great weather, willing staff with a sense of humour and even the golf is pretty good... More

We have been here a few times now and whilst I admit that there are aspects where some repairs need to be done, it must be appreciated what a difficult time Egypt have experienced and so investments will come over time. In the meantime the service we got just cannot be improved upon. Particular praise must go to Mr Arabi... More

Having just spent a week over in Hurghada, I feel like melted ice-cream ,Im so relaxed! Well, where to begin? The hotel was excellent. Huge rooms, plenty of space, lots of sun-loungers ,when and where you need them, an excellent waiter service, the beach on your doorstep...and a HUGE pool which spans the whole hotel. Go 'all inclusive' and a... More

Visited the grand makadi on 5th May for a week with my boyfriend, I have been to the palace 4 times previous and although the grand makadi isn't as good, it most definitely doesn't deserve some of the bad reviews that have been left here. It's a gorgeous hotel, perfect location, there are lots of restaurants to choose from, in... More

Stayed for 11 nights from 17th April. Hotel ok but certainly not 5 star. On arriving we were pleasantly surprised when told we had a free upgrade to a junior suite. The room was very spacious and on first impressions were impressed with the cleanliness/layout. This impression changed once we had used the shower! The shower curtain was REVOLTING! The... More

A very nice Scandinavian buffet on Saturday with the excellent swedish host, Pierre Edlund. I experienced a very nice and professional treatment. Calm surroundings with not too many children, close to the beach with wonderful snorkling/diving opportunity. I also liked the Carribean restaurant very much. Best regards, Dag Kristoffersson

A great hotel with beautiful view of the Red Sea. The beach is close and from there you can go snorkeling or diving. The food was amazing to be all-inclusive, and very luxurious. The staff were fantastic and you will be well taken care of.

1st time in Egypt so only able to compare to the much more expensive AI in Mexico and Caribbean. Based purely on price this holiday was less than 1/2 the cost of previous ones. But overall value was unbelievable. The building is the original one of the Makadi hotels and it beautiful in what appears to be traditional Egyptian style.... More
