This was our first time in Makadi Bay and we were not disapointed. This hotel is fantastic with large spacious rooms which were cleaned daily and numerous towel art left. Comfy king size beds and a mini bar with water, fruit juice and fizzy drinks. Numerous bars around the resort serving a variety of spirits, wine, beers and fizzy drinks... More

Bit wary about taking our three month old on holiday, let alone to Egypt (had previously been to Sharm a number of times and although the snorkeling and weather were fab, not had friendly staff so were concerned who could assist if anything went wrong), but desperate for some family time and sun we risked it and booked. We would... More

This hotel is good. It has lovely grounds, a great beach, good swimming/snorkelling, it is well maintained and one will always find something acceptable to eat in the restaurants. The only down side is that the rooms are a little tired and could do with some refreshing. The staff perform well although could be a little more attentive and proactive.... More

We went to FA over Christmas and New Year and what a fabulous time we had. This is the place to be if you want to relax and have no stress. The mobiles were put in the safe, we didn't use the TV and no newspapers! We stayed in the West Wing having booked with Saga. When we opened our... More

It was lovely to visit the Fort again, a few familiar faces amongst the guests as well as the staff, especially in the west wing restaurant. I have only travelled with Saga to this hotel and as a result am only familiar with the west wing accommodation. My room faced south, facing the sea, and being on the ground floor... More

Pros: 1- Very spacious rooms and beds 2- For a 4 stars, very nice bathroom. 3- Food was relatively nice 4- When you ask for a drink, you get... More

Arrived at FA and we were checked in at the normal check in desk (not the Villa check in) but it was quick. We were not shown to the villa (1 bedroom) just pointed in the general direction. You will not be disappointed as the Villas are great! You enter in to a hallway where the bedroom and bathroom are... More
