“Excellent Hotel and exemplary Staff!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2013 via mobile

Although there wasn't many guests at this hotel, we had a great time and met with some lovely people. Our room was one of the largest and cleanest we have ever stayed in! The hotel and golf course staff were great and nothing was too much of a problem.
If you require to visit the main resort or the beach you can get free transport or walk if you feel energetic.
As for the golf, the course was challenging, especially the slow greens but with temperatures of 31oC and great company it very enjoyable!

Stayed October 2013, traveled as a couple

This was our first time to this hotel, but I wouldn't hesitate to return - the staff were excellent, always there to see to your every need, but they did it so well you hardly noticed them. The hotel only had a few guests but we enjoyed this as we were looking for a quiet break, the small number of guests did not make the standard of food or service any less.

We loved the position of the hotel away from other hotels, you could go down to the beach and other hotels, but we preferred the hotel so didn't venture down to Makadi Bay.

If you are looking for a good quality hotel away from it all go here it's a wonderful away from it all rest - an excellent restful break.

This was our second visit to the Makadi Bay and Golf Hotel. As on our first visit we were so impressed with the courtesy and friendless of all the staff. We have never stayed in a hotel as clean and so comfortable as this one. You don't need to be a Golfer or a fitness fanatic to enjoy a stay at this hotel, just lazing by the pool was enough for us. The political situation in Egypt meant that the hotel was very quiet but last year with more guests staying there was still so much attention given to everything which made it a completely relaxing holiday. Hopefully the brave Brits will continue to stay there during the political unrest in the major cities which did not affect our holiday at all. I hope that this hotel will continue to be supported by First Choice.

We have just returned from the Jaz Makadi Golf Hotel and cannot express how wonderful the experience was and cannot recommend a trip there highly enough. We went with friends and had emailed ahead and asked for Golf Views which we were given and what a view it was. Although due to incidents in Cairo and Alexandria the hotel was virtually empty which is a great shame for all the wonderful staff, there was certainly no signs of any unrest in the Makadi Bay area. Michael at the pool bar was unbelievably attentive and would bring my husband and our friends drinks without being asked, Mohammed in the main restaurant was also a credit to customer service. The suites are beautiful but to be honest the normal rooms take a lot of beating.
Gamal the Golf pro was also great but we felt for him as there were hardly any golfers playing the course, I would question the rates at the course and any decent management company would put on special offers to get people on the course rather than have it empty, we played and it is a cracking course but I have played better courses both in the UK and Overseas for a lot less than 85 euros! I know that the cliental is predominantly German and they are probably happy to pay that green fee, but they are not travelling there at the moment as there government do not deem it safe so accommodate the visitors that you do have. After all you can play the Belfry for £80!!!!
That said it really was a fantastic 10 days and I was very very disappointed to learn that First Choice/Thomsons have dropped it from there brochure they now only offer a two centre deal that incorporates this marvellous hotel, shame on you.
I do hope that things pick up for the resort it really is a shame that such a lovely place and lovely people are suffering needlessly.
PS massages are great too and boat trip/dolphin swim was great value.

Room Tip: Beach view rooms get the sun in the morning and Golf views in the afternoon

Just returned from restful week where everything is in place to ensure you are stress free! Hotel clean, decor very tasteful and calm. Rooms large and comfortable. Balcony has proper furniture, no plastic! Views either sea or golf course are lovely. All staff polite and attentive especially reception who very quickly sort out any questions. All inclusive is excellent value. Food always good in both main restaurant and pool bar. Definitely recommend this hotel who deserve their high ratings. General Manager always around and approachable.

Went here on 23rd September for a week with my wife ,we were at home from the second we arrived the room was splendid and staff were brilliant right from the manager to the cleaner. And all in between ,Michael at the pool bar was so attentive coffee arrived at your poolside chair without asking as regular as clockwork mid afternoon once he realized that is what we enjoyed .The manager was very polite and his my home is your home attitude is carried through wonderfully.food was always very good not the best ever 5star but very good and wine and drinks were never scarce.Our one littlie niggle was that as we arrived around 9.30 pm from Birmingham and the restaurant was closed we only got some bread ham and cheese in our room whereas if you arrive from Manchester mid afternoon you do not miss out on your first meal in the restaurant,not a major problem I know but maybe one that needs sorting.However all in all we would go back tomorrow.The hotel had no more than 20 guests at any time we were there which was not a problem and all staff seemed even more concerned with making you welcome .definitely a hotel for the buckdet list.Ps Thomson rep I think was named Mina was very good always had time to talk

Room Tip: We had a seaview which was lovely ,but ask to see the suites if you have the money they are wonderfu...
