Reviews Summary
This summary was created by AI, based on recent reviews.
Powered by AI
Labranda Royal Makadi often garners praise for its pristine cleanliness, particularly in the rooms, pools, and public areas, although a few guests have suggested there's room for improvement. While the hotel's rooms are recognized for their tidiness, calls for modernization are common. Despite the hotel's stunning gardens, beach, and location near prime snorkeling spots, the value for money is questioned by guests who point out extra costs and underwhelming amenities. The staff's friendliness is frequently commended, but some visitors have encountered slow service and seek a more peaceful atmosphere away from the lively entertainment.

Italian restaurant on the promenade at LABRANDA royal Makaki. Really good food with huge portions. Excellent service with friendly attentive staff. You get to eat here as part of the all inclusive package which is great value. Wine served with the meal and replenished throughout. Definitely worth a visit.

The quality of the hotel did not impact the holiday, but it is not the standard I would have expected of a 5* resort. The alcohol on offer was of a very poor standard, with no alternative premium drinks to the standard all inclusive drinks being offered or available. The spirits appeared to be watered down. There were ‘premium’ cocktails on offer at the ‘premium’ bar however these were pretty standard and what most other resorts would have included in the all inclusive package. The wifi is of a very poor standard and connectivity is poor at best. Do not rely on this and buy an Egyptian sim card for your phone. The food is often very repetitive day to day, while most of it is very tasty, variety would be nice. The cakes on offer at the buffets are largely the same. These could use some variety as it is all the same sponge and they do not taste any different. The ala carte restaurants are largely pointless as the food on offer at them is on offer at the main buffet at times and further at the weekly ‘white party’. On the topic of the ‘white party’, it is given the feel that it is an exclusive food festival, but it is run once a week with the same theme and food as the week before, hardly the culinary festival it is hyped up to be. The forced praise of the staff at the end is also very awkward and the ‘MC’ is terrible, shouting the same phrase every 30 seconds. The ‘entertainment team’ leave alot to be desired. It appears they are far more interested in flaunting about the resort attempting to be celebrities than running a decent stream of events. They rinse and repeat each day in a groundhog day manner which is tediously boring. While staying on the resort two of the members of the team were very rude to my partner and I, one instructing us “smile you’re on holiday” and the other standing over us while we read until we put our books down to see what they wanted. Chris was helpful on a couple of occasions and nice to talk to. The club dance is woeful to say the least. Having to watch it three or four times a day should be considered a crime against entertainment. In our 10 day stay, there were two entertainment nights worth watching, the egyptian dance and the fire eaters. One of the entertainment team took to instructing the audience to clap during every event, however clapping does not cover up for sub-par entertainment and is usually reserved as praise for something good. The music selection by the pool day in day out is depressing at best. Upbeat music appears to be frowned upon. If this was my hotel, I’d be looking for someone to redo the entertainment programme before the summer season begins, as the current one is terrible and lacks variety. 90% of the male staff were completely disrespectful and inappropriate, waiting until my partner was alone before making comments to her about her looks. There isn’t much to do in the evening and the bars lack any atmosphere, serving as a tap only. Getting peace and quiet by the pool can be hard to come by as the local businesses flood the area to try get buyers each day. To list some positives, the pools and beach are nice to relax by boasting plenty loungers to lie on (however the sand is pretty rough). The dive centre are fantastic and super helpful. Hussein is a great teacher and is very patient. The quad safari is a pretty good half day out too. One member of staff who deserves praise is Mo who usually works on the pool bar, always delivering excellent service with a smile. He is an incredible asset to this hotel. The staff all appear hard working, striving to give the best possible service they can. The gardens of the hotel were stunning, the groundskeepers deserve a raise and then some! The Gelateria and the member of staff who works there were both fantastic. The gelato was top quality as was his service. All in all, the quality of the hotel did not impact the holiday as the company I had was fantastic but it is a far cry from a 5* hotel.

This hotel was amazing you knew you were going to have a good time from the moment you walk through the front door. The greeting was warm and welcoming, and even though it was our first visit, you felt like you had come home beautiful comfy environment, welcoming reception, and a great lobby bar offering a great choice of beverages, and even afternoon tea, a nice sports area where you could play billiards and pool and plenty of places to sit and read and generally chill The animation team had so much energy every day plenty to do from aqua aerobics dance lessons darts beach volleyball you name it. They did it with style and Grace each member of the animation team were so lovely even encouraging the worst person who wouldn’t want to do it found when they did they had the best time, a special thanks was to Chris lag His energy was amazing. He always spent time to talk and to listen. Even when you just wanted to lie by the pool we thoroughly enjoyed the aquarobics each day and the stretching and yoga classes, even for novices like us. The animation team were also responsible for the shows in the theatre. The dance routines were amazing each night had a different offering. Then Chris and the team would be at Coco Loco, the nightclub dancing with guest and ensuring that you left with a smile on the face. You truly loved the amount of energy they put into each performance. Every day was different. Can’t thank them enough.Chris tour a star you truly made our holiday he would make sure we always had fun and a smile to die for we always had a sun lounger and a space by the pool the atmosphere was so good around the beautiful pools and manicured gardens so many great photo opportunities we never felt the need to co to the beach chris and the team made it so much fun regardless if we took part or watched it was always so much fun Thank you Chris we cant wait to come again we loved you your an amazing ambassador for lebranda Also a big thank you for Tarak pool attendant we loved your fun chats and the smiles and the telephone calls to the heavens to bring the sunshine to us each day he was a joy The food and beverage team works tirelessly day and night to ensure that we had the great experience with a fabulous offering of food each day a fabulous breakfast to start your day with plenty of choice. Lunchtime was always different with plenty of fresh food and snacks and always served with a smile. You are welcomed into each of the restaurants. All the waiting staff were there to assist you with a welcome. Nothing was ever too much trouble and they go the distance to ensure that you thoroughly enjoyed yourself. Especially to Sayed your team are amazing You also had the speciality area where they offered Indian Chinese sushi, Italian Greek and ice cream parlour. these were speciality dining areas, so if you didn’t fancy anything on the themed buffet, you could always book a meal in any of these, but by far the best for me, was the seafood restaurant, which had an ambience to die for on the water, looking out to the sea, you really felt you were in the top class restaurant and the seafood was amazing. We also had dinner in the Winehouse another wow experience quality food, fabulous Location it was a dining experience you wont forget in a hurty head chef. Mohammed Libby should be very proud of his catering team, they went always above and beyond to ensure that you were happy, and if you weren’t, they were willing to put it right but this was never the case it was always right we had the pleasure of attending a white night gala. What a feast that was every single member of catering waiters cleaners. Dancers the entertainment team were all welcomed and praised for the effort that they put in you don’t often see what goes on behind-the-scenes and it was a pleasure of being part of the celebration of thanks the open barbecue and buffet was amazing. Every member of staff was dressed in white and what a party we had. I have been some white parties in many places but by far this was the best it is so embracing to see that the CEO and the general managers appreciate their staff , hence why each and every member of staff works hard and diligently you can see it’s a well lead team from the top of the tree to the bottom you could approach any member regardless of status you didn’t feel like a guest, you felt like family i for one will definitely return again There are so many staff members that will hold a special place in my heart, a handful I’d like to mention, would be Mohammed Ali, beverage manager, Chris laj entertainment coordinator Yousef in the outside bar area. He was just as delight Amir, who ran the juice bar and the cocktails we would look forward to seeing them both every day, such a warm and welcoming people always smiling Thank you .. to Mohammad bar manager and his team and every waiting member of staff that waited on the tables in both the restaurants i thank you all its an experience i will never forget you touched my heart in so many ways by far the best vibe of any hotel i have stayed in in Hurghada I've been in a few some areas need a wee tweak but for ambiance fun and that fuzzy feeling this is the place to be you will return time and time again it was amazing Lastly, I’d like to pay thanks to the beauty and hairdressing salon team. I had the best experience an amazing haircut and the most fabulous facial special. Thanks to Habad to Safia Bakar and Basaima You made me feel 10 years younger,belive me that is a task such talent. The salon is definitely a place to visit and it is a fun vibe fabulous stylus and lastly two the massage team. My daily massages were fabulous.safia i love you such a beautiful girl To summit all up in all a good clean fabulous hotel you’ll come home and be sad because you would like to do it all again. Thank you to everyone at-the Lebranda Royal Makadi see you all soon x

First day home after leaving England, got holiday blues already. Just wanted to say thank you to all the staff there for looking after us through out are stay in Egypt. The holiday was amazing and the hotel resort was fantastic. Thank you to Osama on the bar for always having a smile and looking after us and making sure our glasses are never empty 😂 the young lad at the coffee hut next to the pool for making us delicious coffees every morning. The massages were brilliant and we felt brand new every time we came out of the spa. The a la carte food was a chefs kiss. Lastly thank you to the animations crew especially Chris for making us feel at home and providing smiles on everyones faces in the evening. Overall our stay was 10/10 and I would highly recommend staying there 😎

Had the best time here. from the stunning views from our room to the ambience of the place. All the staff go above and beyond to accommodate you. FromThe animation team with Lovely Chris Laj88 everyday trying his hardest to get us to join in with Gym etc always smiling and stopping by for a chat. Really felt at home here and safe. I also want to do a special thank you to Mohammed and Yousef at the pool bar. These 2 are amazing. They work so hard and nothing is too much trouble. My only down with this hotel is the lack of WIFI but even that is not really a problem. Woukd even consider coming back here alone as a single woman as I know I woukd be well looked after. Please all management recognise the work the staff do here They are making this a great hotel to stay.

Having been to the labranda royal makadi around 5 times before, we knew that things were slowly changing at the hotel, every year the all inclusive concept scaled back a little every year. We came this time knowing this, so I'm not going to go too much into a comparison, as that won't help anyone looking to book this for the first time. The rooms are clean, but a bit dated, the food in both the main and beach restaurant is ok, it's hot, and there's a good variety, always a pasta station, pizza, chips, stews, chicken, kebabs , and always plenty of salad and fruit available. The alacartes, we only used the Italian Indian and French. French was decent, Indian didn't taste remotely like any Indian I've ever tried, and Italian tastes good, but we both spent 2 days throwing up and on toilet for 2 days after the Italian. Hard to pinpoint what the actual problem was, but we suspected the Italian, but 2 days later we were both back enjoying ourselves. Drinks are ok, beers fine, spirits are as you expect for local spirits. Cocktails ain't the best, everything's made with sugary coloured syrup and juice, so we couldn't get the Pina coladas we used to get the previous times. We had access to VIP lounge as returning guests, drinks were all the same as other bars, but you got a nice buffet laid on for a couple hours early evening, however almost everyone we spoke to said it was there first time there and they just walked in. Looked at coco loco bar, couldn't understand what you got and for how much, apparently you pay to get in, then pay for your drinks once in, but others said it's free to get in, and others say you pay to get in then free drinks once in, we never went in other than during the day to snap a picture of the eye watering price list. We also asked about the VIP upgrade, so you could use the clubs restaurants as well, and get premium drinks included, was around £30 per day per couple, asked reception what premium drinks we could get and where, he just laughed and shrugged his shoulders and said nothing, so obviously we didn't buy that waste of money. An annoyance we noticed, lots of people around our pool, in restaurants, bars, beach with the sister hotel lemon and soul hotel wristbands on, id assumed they have a deal there where they pay extra for use of the royals facilities, however we got talking to some at the pool bar, and no, they were told to come use the facilities by their hotel, and no one at royal seemed to care. Given that our holiday was £500 more than the same holiday in the lemon and soul, I wasn't at all happy, making it even worse, the lemon and soul have a segregated part on the royals beach, with their own bar and snack bar that I was refused service at. Really not on to be charging us for apparently better facilities while allowing other hotels to use them for free, felt ripped off. The beach is nice, amazing sunrises, plenty of sunbed in both the pool and beach, get to sunbed by 8 you'll get front row, later than that, you'll be further back, but you will get a bed. Animation team were all friendly, did their couple of 20 mins spots round the pool twice a day then left, perfect for me as I want to relax round the pool. All the staff were friendly and helpful, with the exception of reception, they are always uninterested and miserable. In fact the only things I remember being the same in the 7 or so years since I first went to this hotel was both the friendly, helpful towel/pool attendant round the main heated pool, and the miserable unhelpful reception staff. It's actually an ok hotel, lovely location, right on the beach, heated pool, ok food, ok drinks, but for us, the price they are charging is a fair bit more than in the past, that's to be expected I know, however the facilities, services and quality and range of food and drinks has gone down to a level that now makes this hotel, just another basic all inclusive , whereas before it was premium experience. Anyway, if you can get a good deal, book it, but don't overpay.

I love the fact that You can do everything you can imagine for a hotel in this one place, yet every single activity and facility is top notch. You have a tennis court, squash etc... Great pools as well as private Beach Activities and Animations driven by the best animation Crew Ever It was also a great asset to have a private hotel guest only club "COCO LOCO" on the premises, far enough not to hear it in the rooms at night. Food was as You can expect a great expirience, as there is a large spectrum of things to choose from meat and fish pasta (with pasta station where you can ask a cook to make any pasta you want) a lot of bread forms to choose from cheeses desserts in the form of cakes as well as cookies puddings etc. and a lot more The rooms where clean, and a cleaning crew very nice to us if we needed anything. They also build us a towel swan and AN ELEPHANT. I LOVED THE ELEPHANT. MY MAN, THANK YOU AGAIN overall a great expirience especially for this price. 10/10
