My partner and I stayed at this hotel 7th to 21st September 2012 and found the grounds and the lay out excellent and well looked after. Having been before we were well aware of Egyptian Belly could spoil your holiday so we used the local ANTIMAL, bought from the pharmacy to keep us in check and that proved to work again however I will say if you get a bad bug and most do, buy it from outside of the hotel as it is lots cheaper.
Food was good and plentiful but did find booking a real pain as the other nationalities tend to block book, we tried but were told to return the next afternoon to find bookings full for 7 days. My only gripe with this is the brochures say you can eat til 10pm...that may be true but you certainly cannot get a meal after 9pm, especially in the Makadi Mall, a great setting for entertaining and restaurants but not used to its full potential.
So food decent and plentiful, room... so so, we showered rather than bathed as the bath was awful (2207) but hey, thats not a major worry. Staff great expecially around the pool and the reception bar, plenty of sun beds even at 10am.
Would I go back? I think I am all Egypted out so no but this is no reflection on the hotel which fulfilled our needs for a quiet relaxing two weeks.
Our flight back with Monarch was spoilt with a stop over in Venice, which did not go down well with the 212 passengers but that is hardly the fault of the hotel is it?
The Grand Makadi was very good and worth the money!

There is a large sweeping beach, and a jetty that takes guests directly to the house reef where they can enjoy snorkelling in the crystal clear Red Sea waters. The large swimming pool and sun terrace offer plenty of space for sunbathing, and the children’s club and sporting activities keep the children occupied. Add a diverse choice of restaurants and it really is an ideal base for enjoying all the Red Sea has to offer. ... more less
