“lovely hotel right on the beach front”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2010

We booked this last minute and the hotel was lovely we were greeted with a welcome drink and taken to our room by golf buggy as the resort is large. The staff were very welcoming and friendly. The rooms were nice and very clean however we were given a twin room and were told they had no doubles left which was a disapointment and frustrating when a double had been booked.

The grounds were lovely and taken good care of however the main pool needed some small maintenance to it as the steps were wobbly and the tiles around the edge were worn. The main pool was not as clean as it could have been either but there were other pools in the resort that were newer and spotlessly clean so it was really just the main pool that needed some time spent on it.

The restaurants were great especially the italian which we ate in a few times and plenty of choice in the buffet restaurant! There was also good entertainment on in the evenings so plenty to do without leaving the resort.

With Thomas Cook, well organised, tidy clean rooms, spacious. Great variety of food and the various restaurants were suburb. Friendly local people, not pestered. Went diving , 5 dives, but not as much to see as Sham (might of been a good thing !) however diving instructors at the hotel school very good and kind. Music turned off at 12, so you know you could sleep. Good entertainment. Definitely return. Had massage, my husband had a strong sport massage, i also asked for a sports massage but got a girl, not strong if you are looking for a deep massage, but pleasant enough.

It is getting very difficult to know what to say about this hotel as we have been so many times (9 in 5 years)but I think there slogan “Welcome home” says it all from the moment you get of the airport coach until the day you leave stress is very much something you need not think about.
The hotel is an oasis of relaxation with fantastic staff supervised by an incredible Management team all of whom are very approachable, it is quite hard to believe this hotel now has over 600 rooms and around 700 staff all with one thing in mind to ensure that your holiday exceeds your expectations, My wife Yvonne and I say to each other each time that we go surly this holiday can’t be as good as our last visit but we are always wrong our visit to the hotel last week exceeded our expectations by a mile and bear in mind we love this hotel so our expectations are very high to start with.
It was also a great pleasure for us to meet other guests on this trip whom we had met on the forum pages here on tripadvisor, a big hello to A and H.

In short if you are thinking of a holiday in the Red Sea Area Makadi bay in particular then
The Sunrise Select Royal Makadi Resort and Spa
Is still without doubt the best hotel in Makadi bay

We went last year and having been to a five star resort in Dominican Republic we knew it wouldn't live up to this, but we were really quite surprised. It was fantastic for the money we paid. The buffet was fine for breakfast and dinner, although can get repetitive, but we used to go to the other restaurants most evenings - not sure if this was because it was out of season, but we just used to book them that morning and went every night. Weather was lovely and snorkelling great - sea temp warm as were two of the pools - the non heated pools were freezing - no one even sunbathing around them. Great place would def recommend if you want a bit of sun in the winter at a good price! Oh the staff and the entertainment crew were also great!

just spent another week in Egypt with the Sunrise group not been to Makadi bay before
found the hotel not upto the normal Sunrise groups hotels suffered a stomack upset not an unusual event in Egypt the site rep was off duty at the time so visited the reception and asked where the nearest pharmacy was located the answer none available so i waited until the next morning to see the rep but was talking to fellow guests and they said there was a pharmacy in the ajecent hotel TIA heights just past the dive centre located in the drounds of the royal makadi hotel collected some medicine and all ok suffered another bout of upset so did my partner and told the reception that the food seemed uncooked pots and meat normally they said they would fix it but they didnt when i return to Egypt again which i will do it WILL NOT be the Makadi Bay this otel in my opinion lets down a very good group of hotels image there appears not to be any leadership at the helm the bqalcony fittings are in need of replacement anf a general overhaul of the standard rooms

We really enjoyed our stay at the Sunrise Makadi Bay, there where 8 in total in our party 6 Adults & 2 youngsters, the pools where kept immaculately clean, we where lucky enough to have our rooms upgraded & we couldn't fault them, again everywhere was kept lovely & clean. the staff were very friendly & helpfull they couldn't do enough for you. We ate out a couple of times in the Asian & Italian restaurants, these were excellent & we would most definately recommend these! the main restaurant food was ok but did get a little monotonous as did the breakfasts. But overall everything was excellent we would definately like to go again.
