Well we had the best week away from the British snow well exceeding our expectations, and experience at other all inclusive resorts. The staff were polite and friendly and did not look for tips all the time as there are tip boxes which are shared with back of house staff too. The food range was excellent, heaps of fresh fruit and veg and they never ran out of tonic to go in the gin for a sundowner! (Unlike the Hilton!). The resort is at one end of a string of Red Sea resorts and you had access to them all to use pools etc - there is a fab infinity pool! The house reef is very new and stable and was excellent for snorkelling. I was able to see a huge range of fish just in waist height water - simply stunning.
The Italian and Lebanese restaurants were superb and we ate there most evenings. It was also super to have wifi access in the reception area.
The pools are huge and super to swim around - mostly the water was heated but there was a cooler day or two. The Lagoon restaurant was super for breakfast and lunch, or other pool and beach options exist with scrummy food.
There was a fair range of entertainment during the day - Pilates in the morning, all over body workout later and Zumba in the afternoon. The entertainment team were charming and fun despite very low attendance for many events.
We were blessed with superb weather for the time of year which was a blessing but none the less we shall be returning again without doubt.

- The Grand Makadi Hotel is a lively destination with the needs of younger families firmly at its heart. 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
