This marked the 3rd time we stayed at Prima Life. Unfortunately we will be looking elsewhere next year. We really liked Prima Life in the past but it seems something has changed since our last visit. Here are the changes 1. You can longer book on booking.com we use booking for most of our travels. They are trusted, give good value and ratings are generally on point. I think this will be a mistake for Prima Life. 2. Food. The quality does not seem the same Generally bland and not fresh tasting 3. Room decor is starting to look a bit tired 4. A few of the wait staff were a bit too pushy and felt like they were aggressively wanting a tip. 5. Animation Team. Don't remember the animation team in the past being so obnoxious. The democratic is mostly older couples or working age couple just wanting sun and peace. Maybe save the animation team for May- August. They truly turned me off on wanting to come back. Not sure that is really what managdment wants them to be doing. I would probably get rid of them--- sorry as they are mostly just kids, but the hotel needs to understand their demographic. I question who is managing them?!? We really liked Prima Life in the past. Love the shore snorkeling, big pool area, love the fresh pizza at the beach bar. Love the front staff, love the price point. It seems like there has been a change of heart and they have become less customer focused and more cost cutting focus. Sorry to say, we will likely not be returning for a 4th year in a row.

One of the best experience in a resort abroad. Outstanding service, polite, friendly and most helpful staff. The location of the hotel it’s amazing. Our view from the room was impressive. Beach facilities were great. Two bars on the beach with amazing drinks and snack. We went on a few trips facilitated by the hotel and we had the best of time, affordable prices. As it was all inclusive, the culinary experience was top notch. There were themed nights, food was really good with variety. We felt like royalties as the servers knew us and as soon as they saw us our drinks were sent to our table. Desert buffet was my personal favorite. We felt like home, the staff were the friendliest and most polite ones, happy to assist with any request. I would definitely recommend the resort. Being winter it wasn’t too crowded which suited us best. Ideal for a couple or family holiday, who are looking for a wind down time. Safe and secure hotel.

Let me tell you the many reasons why Prima Life Makadi is a resort I would never spend money at again. Laundry service fiasco: We have used laundry services in resorts and hotels countless times. Never have I had the staff bring back bags of laundry then ask us to check whether it is actually all ours or not. Here I am, at the beach with three kids when my husband FaceTimes me from our room with the staff member and shows me pieces of clothes asking if they belong to me or our kids. Eventually the gentleman admits that they accidentally mixed our laundry with another room’s. Unacceptable. Room cleanliness: We repeatedly noticed that the floors were not being cleaned. The housekeeping crew did the bare minimum. Noise levels: Every night the resort had entertainment in the reception. That is fine and nice. Except they routinely had the staff play their entertainment at harmful noise levels. They market themselves as a family friendly resort yet not once did they heed our feedback that the noise level was excessive and harmful to sensitive folks in my family. On new year’s eve, the management took the ‘wise’ decision to not only trap everyone in a ‘reception’ at that noise level for 90 mins before dinner, but also to have no other option for dinner except that reception/party and room service (which is not included if you have a meal plan ). The noise level was so horrible the staff at the front desk could not even hear the phones ringing. I know because my daughter who was sick and could not attend the party, wanted to order room service and I had to go to the front desk for mer The food was barely ok. Most of it catering to the Eastern European clientele and served in poorly lit buffets. The crowd in the resort routinely acted like they’ve never seen food before and the lines were horrible. The beach is great but all beaches on the Red Sea are beautiful. I wish the management would play Egyptian music and show some more pride in their culture instead of overplayed DJ tracks and latin hits. All in all I do not recommend this resort.

I just fell in love with everything and everyone at Prima Life Makadi! It's pretty small and cheerful so everyone will know your name and facts about yourself which makes it very personal. Everyone has been working so hard and made me feel included, important and always greeted with a genuine smile. Special thanks to the flexible reception team, Abdul at the beach bar and Mohamed at L'Azurre, housekeeper Ali & the team, Gaber, the chefs and the flatbread lady at the restaurant, the whole team at the beach and of course the fantastic young animation team!! I wish I could name everyone who has been so attentive. I can highly recommend the Wellness centre and their massages (lovely Hend was absolutely amazing!) and the Diving Ocean diving centre (Monica, Fox & Adam). The resort has only a small beach but with the best access to coral reefs with an impressive variety of fish; I even saw an octopus while snorkeling! It suits people who want some animation and peace at the same time. I wasn't expecting the choices like food to be top class (for example, vegetarian/vegan options were limited) but they're great and it's the best value for the price!! Prima Life Makadi and the team made me feel more positive and confident again. Thank you everyone so much for always taking your time and smiling! I wish to return and out of all hotels I've seen around Makadi bay, I'd definitely choose Prima Life Makadi!! ❤️
