Having just returned from Makadi Palace after many many visits,this time was even more special than ever.We were a party of six, on a 60th birthday holiday for my wife. On arriving at the reception area,we were met with a cold refreshing drink,and a warm welcome.
The reception staff are so freindly,two of the reception staff Haytham and Mohamed made sure all our party were in rooms close together. We chose this hotel because it has a laid back atmoshhere, perfect for relaxation. we have been to this hotel numerouse times in the past , and have watched the grounds maturing over the years.We are early risers, but even if you arent, there will be plenty of sunbeds available even after breakfast.
There are three breakfast venues , lots of choice for everyone, you can eat out in the sun or sit indoors with air conditioning , if you like it cooler.
There are plenty of choices for lunch, the sunset bar near the beach, offers burgers hot dogs and the chips are great. We would change from day to day , But we loved long liesurley lunches in the Thai Garden , you wont be dissapointed if you try there, the food and staff are both amazing.
The pool boys, will offer you their services, always with a smile.We like to reward them for their service with dollar notes.as they have a problem with exchanging pound coins. You wont get a lesser service if you dont tip them. But Its nice to be nice.
In the evening there are plenty of restaurants to choose for dinner. Our personal favourites are the Thai Garden, and the Botanical Garden, service and food are to a high standard.After dinner you could relax at the Joker bar. The piano bar, or the rondevous bar, or relax on the terrace near the reception. The gin and tonics are good, but the whisky is an aquired taste. the egyption red and white wines are very good.the girls in our party loved the rose wine. the beer is very good too.
If you need any advice about your holiday,then speak to Amanda in customer relations, she is very very helpful, and very scottish.
Our party of six all had a wonderful holiday at the Makadi Palace, and i would like to thank Searge , and John . and Mr Hatim and Mr Antor, and everyone who made that 60th birthday holiday so great. You will see us again in may.
