This hotel is a wonderful place to stay if you want peace and quiet, good food and excellent views. Having read previous reports I did not know what to expect, the drive up leaves you wondering what have I done! The hotel however was wonderful. We arrived late, due to delayed flight! On arrival we were quickly allocated our rooms and were given a food box had we had missed our evening meal. We stayed in 2 rooms as we split our holiday with a Nile Cruise. Both rooms were lovely, a little worn around the edges, but this is normal in most meditaranean hotels in my experience. They were clean and spacious. Meals were available at 4 restaurants in the resort and 2 in the adjoining Makadi Palace, we did not dine in these 2 as we found the selection in the Grand Makadi were enough. Unlike previous reviews we had no problem when it came to knowing what is included in the all inclusive package, the menus are clearly marked. We were informed of this at our introduction meeting, some people obviously don't listen!! The pool area was to die for with plenty of sunbeds, we never had a problem finding one. The beach is narrow and to swim you need to navigate the coral beds. Beach shoes highly reccommended! There is a roped off area for snorkelling, give it a go wow! The entertainment was basic, local singers who apparently did not know all the words, but hey its not the X Factor and it was a relaxing way to end the days. We found most people had gone to their rooms by 11 o clock so we didn't need a disco etc blasting out till all hours!
To sum up, if you want peace, quiet, relaxation, clean rooms, friendly, but not pushy, staff and lovely hot weather this is the hotel for you.
