Wanted a chill out week with hot sunshine and this is exactly what we got. A lovely hotel. Great staff - friendly and helpful, immaculate large tiled bedroom, excellent choice of restaurants - we ate at the Lebanese, Thai, Italian and Caribbean. Great to walk on the beach or along the jetty to spot the many fishes in the coral... More

A booking through Travelzoo with Red Sea Holidays. Very reasonably priced so went for two weeks. Weather hot but a cooling breeze made it pleasant. Sea temperature only 22 degrees in March so rather challenging. Many braved the temperature for the snorkelling opportunities on the coral reef only a few shallow metres from the beach. Regular glass bottomed boat trips... More

Booked through Red Sea Holidays via Travelzoo and got a great deal. Stayed in a junior suite with a pool view (room 1111), bathroom a bit tied but adequate for our needs. The staff were excellent and really looked after us, no demands for tips but they were gratefully accepted when offered. The choice of places to eat was very... More

Red Sea Holidays is an Egyptian company and could teach Brits a lot about good customer service. Our week at Grand Makadi Hotel was relaxing and exactly what we were looking for. We booked last minute and felt we'd had excellent value for money. There are three linked RSH hotels on this site and Makadi Mall which has restaurants, shops... More

We booked a late deal with less than 24hrs notice. Having stayed at the sister hotel Makadi Palace last year I was pretty confident of what I would find and was not disappointed. From arrival at the airport to checking in at the hotel, nothing could have gone smoother. We were quickly shown to our large, airy junior-suite room on... More

Yes its a little tired and yes there are some tiles missing in the pool but this is no way detracts from what is a fantastic location and hotel. Second year in a row and will definitely come back again. Food, service.....all of it is perfect. Love it!

Returned just over a week ago from The Makadi Grand. This was our 3rd time to Egypt and it was probably one of the nicest places we have stayed, all being of a similar price. We paid £399 each for one week all inclusive and thought that was excellent value for money. The choice of places to eat was excellent... More
