Just returned from 2 weeks at this wonderful resort. We were 4 friends travelling together in order to help the convalescence of one of our group from a major cancer operation last year and 50th birthdays for 2 of our group. We needed 2 rooms, one twin and another with two bedrooms (for peace and privacy to help the recovery) so a family room was our best option. We e mailed the hotel beforehand with our requirements and despite a bumpy start for the first night they did their utmost to help and by day 2 we had perfect rooms in a perfect location with a cleaner/chamber person called Anwar who was excellent.
Many thanks to the animation team (don't be put off by the word 'animation' they deal with everything like modern day 'redcoats') especially Marley and Angelika who went out of their way to help make our holiday perfect.
Never short of things to eat, all tastes are catered for. Tip.... Try to book an a la carte restaurant for each evening....the main buffet can be a bit if a free for all! There are six or seven a la cartes so plenty if choice.
Also many thanks to Ahmed and both Abdels in the lobby bar for making us feel special.
Before booking excursions with your rep take the chance to see what's available elsewhere too. We got a discount from the great guys at the beach entrance of the hotel next door (fort arabesque ) called iDive we did a snorkelling trip and a trip to see the dolphins (brilliant!)
The pools are great, as are the gardens. There's not much outside the hotel apart from other hotels which you can walk through with small souk about halfway round the bay. Shuttle buses and taxis available to take you into Hurghada if you wish trance from airport...about 40mins.
We did a two day trip to Luxor mid holiday. Felt safe at all times (booked with www.redseatranfers.com ) very quiet at the moment so no queues for the sights at Luxor and Karnak temples, valley of the kings etc.

We are all ready planning to go back this time next year......can hardly wait! Oh....when you arrive they will say welcome home! Don't worry sounds cheesy but it's only on arrival!

Don't forget a few tips in the right places go a long way! Try and get small money at the airport banks, a 10 egyptian pounds note is worth less than £1 UK.

Room Tip: Try for a pool view.

Had a brilliant time at this resort and the attention to detail is outstanding. The Animation team are fantastic and deserving a special mention are Marley and Angelica who made our stay so special. Really did not want to leave and will definitely be returning as soon as possible.

Another amazing holiday at Sunrise Royal Makadi!!

It was my second visit to SRM, the staff at the hotel are the best ever & remember you each time you visit, really making it feel like home. The animation team are fantastic & aqua aerobics in the sea was a highlight of the morning!! Special mentions to Natalie, John, Angelika, Momo, Marley, Sylvie, Ghazal , Kareem & Coco who came & found us every day to make sure that we were happy guests...the most personable animation team I’ve ever met.

The food in the 6 a la carte restaurants is delicious & the service is second to none, the main restaurant food is good but is very busy at night. Breakfast in the Mexican was great...lovely omelettes & great service from Ahmed Elminiawy & Ashraf!!

The daytime on the beach was lovely & warm. The evenings were a little chilly so we spent time in the lobby bar where we were looked after by Abdel & Ahmed Sayed.

There are too many people to mention that made our stay so special. Thanks to Hashem Lotfy, Salah Mahdy, Hossam Abdallah, Ehab Mohamed, Mahmoud, Khaled, Said....& many more!!

Fantastic holiday in an amazing hotel.....can’t wait to visit again soon!!

Just returned from our second 14 night stay at hotel, we stayed around the same time last February, we met several people who also returned, that tells you how good it is. ALL the staff are so genuinely helpful and nothing is too much for .The hotel and grounds are spotless always someone sweeping, cleaning and gardening. The food in the main restaurant is well cooked,hot and something to every bodies tastes. The 6 speciality restaurants are also really good especially the Asian and the Mexican. The 6 pools and pool areas are very clean with beds and shade. The beach is proper sand not like the grit in Sharm and the sea is clear and slopes into the sea. The rooms are nice an clean and cleaned every day, pop and water in the . The entertainment and animation team are the best we ever had in Egypt,always around the pool or beach areas talking to guests, always happy and smiley. The locally produced drinks and cocktails are better then most we have tasted. The Mexican is open for breakfast and is far less busy then the main restaurant. All in all I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone and hopefully we will be returning next year, thank you Makadi for a relaxing holiday.

I loved this hotel, the food, the staff everything. I cannot find anything bad to say about. Do not hesitate to book this place and I am sure you will not be disappointed. We booked our excusions with Aladdin who has a desk in the reception area and again we were very happy with the service.

This is the best hotel we have ever stayed in, in Egypt. rooms and all other areas spotlessly clean and all amenities are great. Heated pools make this hotel great for our winter months, i e Dec to Feb as you can still use pools. the al a cartes set the Royal Makadi bay above any other I have visited as they are exceptional for an all inclusive complex. Stayed here twice now and both times absolutely no complaints with everything fabulous, cant wait to return in the next couple months. Facilities for kids, although we did not have any with us were also really good, kids pools and park areas through out the complex. Animation team best ever with all being very pleasant, friendly and genunally concerned for guests. Bar and waiter staff again fabulous could not do enough for you all really friendly and helpful. Food ace no other words for it. rooms again good with good working tv and english film channels.Have to mention animation teams, Natalie, Angelica, Jamaica, Marley ( Marli ) and Ghazal who were all oustanding as were all the rest. Great hotel would recommend to anyone and we will certainly be returning as are other guests we met and got friendly with whilst there

Room Tip: We have been twice just booked standard double room and have had pool view and also garden view, gen...
