We have just returned from a lovely week in the makadi Grand. The weather was just right, hot and sunny in the day time but cool enough to not need the air conditioning at night. There was a cool breeze at night so needed a wrap for my shoulders, when sitting outside for our evening meal. We ate out at... More

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.

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.
