We had very relaxing week in Grand Makadi with my husband. The place is like oasis on a beach surrounded by sand. Very beautiful garden and large pool area. The rooms were spacious and the bed was huge (junior suite).
For a one week, there were lot of choices were to eat. Especially the Caribbean restaurant was nice; both the surroundings and the food. The Lebanese and Italian were a bit disappointment, but that might have been just wrong food choices from the menu. During a week time, we didn't had time to try those twice. The barbeque party on the beach was really good and atmosphere nice. We actually ate twice in there. It was not included to the all inclusive package, but it didn't matter for us (15 euros per person).
The sun beds in the beach and the pool were not too close to each other which was nice and gave a little privacy. We didn't have to reserve those early in the morning either! It was something extra to see those beautiful fishes and corals straight from the hotel's own beach. Note that the swimming shoes are needed if you want to go the sea.
We just wanted to relax and didn't look for shopping opportunities, local life or sight-seeing, so this was perfect place for us. There were enough small "shops" to buy the souvenirs, but they were quite expensive. For sight-seeing, Egypt offers some really great ones, but we decided to let those wait until we can spend little longer time there since those are quite far away.
We could easily go back there at some point and take the children with us also.
