A spacious room with a large bathroom, all furniture and sanitary ware OK (once a broken shower repaired immediately, before our return to the room from the dinner). In general, we tried to... More

The Grand has a pier down to the reef, at high tide you can snorkel straight off the lovely sandy beach. As the pool at the Grand was undergoing maintenance we used the massive pool at the adjoining Palace hotel where there we plenty of available sunbeds with efficient and friendly waiters who will bring you drinks for a small...

This was our fourth visit to the Grand Makadi. The reason we return to Egypt is the cloudless skies, value for money and friendly locals. It is such a shame therefore that we found that bookings for Egypt are down by two thirds. The good people who depend on tourism are really suffering and if this review can persuade anyone... More

If you want to have cheap trips go to Hurgada with free shuttle bus and reserve trip for half hotel price (recommend SHAHIN Tours, 90€ for 2 persons in Luxor... More

Overall is a massive complex with a lot to do and eat, very nice attentions and lovely staff always ready to help (for a tip of-course :) what i did not like was that a lot was for sell, in some restaurants even half of the menu was to pay. but beside that all was great!

We have holidayed here numerous times and always feel very welcome. The staff (including gardeners, maintenance, etc) are always so friendly and helpful. It is such a shame people are put off by adverse publicity re travel to Egypt. We always feel safe. Look at France, Belgium etc. You never know where trouble will strike.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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
