“Amazing Hotel!!! Couldnt expect it would be so GREAT!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

My parents have already stayed in Jaz chain and were very happy and suggested us to go to this hotel.
We were staying from 18th till 27th of January and it was so much pleasure that I cant describe.
Only best words are forwarded from my family to the management and to all stuff of the hotel. We are thankful for letting us have the best vacation of our life!!!
We will be very happy to come next year back to Sol y Mar Club Makadi!!!

Room Tip: I think that room group number 3 and 4 are the best for family with little kids, but group 2 would b...

I needed a break in the sun and booked 5 days before we went....chose this hotel because the others looked too vast and too many rooms...I requested room near pool and sea as have a bad knee and can't walk miles like you have to in many Egyptian hotels and was given it without hesitation...food and drinks were excellent and staff never stopped working or joking...ideal for families or oldies like me,,,lovely strawberries or hot towels etc brought to you on sunbeds in afternoon....beds are of excellent quality and comfortable...staff constantly cleaning and picking up rubbish.....can't fault anything....we were the only English couple there all week but it made no difference . massage was expensive at £40 so didn't have one...Lynne and Graham

Room Tip: Ask to be near the pool if you don't want to walk through the beautiful gardens to get tp your r...

We just came home from Sol Y Mar Club Makadi a few days ago. This was our first time in Egypt, but hopefully not our last one. We will definitely go back to this hotel. It has the most amazing garden and wonderful staff. They work every day from early morning till late night, yet they are always smiling, joking with kids and trying to make us feel as home. Everything was very clean: the rooms, the pool, the garden, the restaurant and also the beach. The animation team was also great. The hotel has mostly german guests, but there are also russians. We loved the drinks and the food.
The only „bad” thing is that wifi is accessible only near the reception, as the garden starts the wifi signal ends, so because our room was in one of the back buildings, we had no signal there :(. If this could improve, everything would be spotless…at least in our opinion :).

My husband and I absolutely loved this hotel!

This was our first time in this hotel and the second in Egypt. The hotel was as good as the comments said we read here before our trip. The room, the restaurant, the pool and the beach area were very clean. Drinks, food and snacks were good and tasty. We always found something delicious to eat. Staff is friendly and kind, they don't expect tip for everything, but they deserve it. There were free loungers every day at the beach without reserving it in the morning. If you didn't find any, there is a guy who helps you in a minute without asking. We hope to get back there soon.

In this hotel we were already 8x. The hotel is excellent for families with children and for pensioners. For young people, it is rather more peaceful character. Everything is excellent. Staff, accommodation, food, drink, cleaning rooms. Although it is a smaller hotel, so the beach, swimming pools and restaurants very close together. A few steps from the sea to their rooms. Beautiful, fragrant garden. Gradual sandy beach with access to the sea. Corals are very close to the shore, manageable even for non-swimmers. Lots of options for water fun, snorkeling, scuba diving, boat trips, fishing. Possibility of walks along the beautiful coast, but also in the center makadi where shops, a pharmacy, a variety of restaurants, disco, bank etc.. This hotel can only be recommended.

Everything was excellent, the hotel, the staff, the food and the entertainment.
I wrote a review two years ago, now the hotel is even better.
The staff is very friendly, always smiling and trying to satisfy the clients.
Sure I'll return there

Room Tip: Pool view rooms, ground floor.

Stayed for 10 nights with kids. Very green resort, beautiful garden, quiet and no drunk people.
Rooms are a bit dark.
Very good entrance into sea even at low tide, you can swim directly from the beach. Hotel have own jetty, you can use it for snorkeling anytime. Corals are dead near the beach but you can find pretty good coral if you will swim 100m left side from jetty end or 50m straight forward into the sea. Many fish, Lionfish lives under jetty, two days saw barracuda and blue dotted skate.
Food variety is OK, some days was offered lamb. BBQ almost every dinner, crab, squid was offered too. Food and service improved greatly on days when hotel was inspected by Company Owner.
