Ok as with anything in life it's not perfect (really a 4*) but if you can get to this hotel December/January you will have an unforgettable holiday.
The design of the grounds is very impressive.They seem to make their women disappear since there are no female staff at the hotel.
Bring a torch since the lightning is very low in the evening and it's easy to trip up but the ambience is beautiful.Bring a jumper for the evening chill.If you've booked the smaller hotel next door, the Grand Makadi change the booking, you've made a mistake it since it's a dump compared to the Palace and your heart will sink everytime you have to return to your run down tiny hotel complex.One guy we met was so miffed with the Grand that he managed to get all his meals in the Makadi Palace since the restarants are so superior.
The French restaurant was good and the staff even wear black berries.
The food in the various restaurants is very good,only go to the Dome for breakfast, but Egyptian chicken is not presented in the clean non greasy style we expect in the UK and meat is not so tender but these are minor details since you still get great value.
Forfeg the day trips and just relax.
Entertainment in the Joker bar could be mproved and the Piano bar is more sophisticated.
