The hotel is a cheap separate building included to Sunwing Waterwrold Makadi palace hotel complex. It means you will use everything from Sunwing Waterworld - aquapark, restaurants territory but actually will live outside the hotel. It isn't a problem, because the area more quiet but big two rooms apartment and furniture are noticeble shabby and require renovation. Even my children... More

An advantage of our family booking was that we could use the restaurants within the Makadi Mall as part of our all inclusive package. We had been advised to tell the waiters that our drinks were also all inclusive and made a point of explaining this to the waiting staff. We chose to dine at the Golden Dragon, the waiter... More

A number of years ago we stayed at Makadi Palace hotel and this time we felt comfortable staying at Makadi Family Star as it is run by the same group. I have to say we were a little concerned having read some of the other reviews as it appeared some of the standards may have slipped. We travelled during the... More

My family and I stayed here for a week over Christmas this year. The resort looks spectacular, the pools and palm trees and well maintained buildings. It is very well maintained, on the outside. However, when it comes to the rooms things are definitely lacking attention. The hallway and bathroom of our room had plaster work peeling and a very... More

This hotel ticket all the boxes and left little to be desired. The two floor, two bedroom, two bathroom apartment had plenty of room for myself and the three friends I travelled with.

“Try and get within the Sunwing itself if you want a more modern room - but the Makadi family Start is good if you want things a little quieter with the convenience of it's own bar. Watch the a/c, though! Temperatures were still mid 30's at night so you will really need it. Great fortnight for us. can't wait to go back.”

“Hotel staff in Egypt always react well if you are friendly and polite towards them. If they find your manner to be rude or not very friendly they will only give basic service rather than go the 'extra mile' to give you a more personal service.”

“Check your room over and request a different one if you're not happy, everyone else seemed to do this but we were too British!”
