If you have ever had the fortune to stay in true 5 star luxury you will know that the Red Sea rating of this hotel is vastly exaggerated, If however, you are an habitual visitor to Egypt you will know this already and have come to expect a certain standard of hotel. Considering the above statement the main problem with... More

the Hotel is tired, it is not 5 star sadly. Everything is worn and needs attention. The food is very poor which is a shame, we only had 2 good meals in our 8 days. The beer is good but dont bother with the wine, it's like paint stripper. The staff are very friendly and polite and they loved looking... More

Very nice people that work there, they always take care of anything you need. The hotel is on a beach, that has a long pier that takes you right to the corals, so you can get into water very easily (trust me, this is impotrant :) ). Food was nothing special, but many different to choose from.. european food usually..... More

Visited the Grand Makadi in July/August 2015 with my wife and two 15 year old boys. We booked via Red Sea Holidays. Excellent value. The Grand Makadi is a little quieter than some of the hotels in Egypt I have visited. There are around 300 rooms (a lot fewer than the Makadi Palace next door) and while the hotel was... More
