I have recently returned from a 7 night stay at the Makadi Spa, from the 19th to the 26th October 2012 as a single traveller. The Reception area was elegant and cool with water features and nice décor, a great entrance to the hotel. My room, 6355, a Junior Suite, was great with a pool and sea view and large balcony. The suite was large with a king size bed, lounge area with L shape sofa and plasma TV and a massive bathroom. The pool area was spacious with lots empty sun beds so no need to be up at 6.00am, the infinity pool was lovely if not a little cold when you first got in, the main pool appeared slightly warmer but the infinity pool had great views to the Red Sea. Beach towels are provided in your room upon arrival. Breakfast was very good; a great range in a lovely setting at the Cove Restaurant, best time to go is 7.30am, early I know but a lovely part of the day not to be missed. The hotel had plenty of Restaurants which you booked in Reception from 3.00pm, I always got the Restaurant I requested, the Steak and Seafood Restaurants are nice as you can sit outside but you have to eat at 7.30pm, the Asian Restaurant was good too, there are also restaurants in the Makadi Mall, worth a try. At lunch time The View, Tapas Restaurant and the Pool Bar are good places to eat depending what you want but you can use the restaurants at the Palace or Grand next door. The guys in the main bar are great and made me feel really welcome; the pool bar was good too with service to your sunbed. Overall a lovely hotel, well worth 5 star rating, will recommend to anyone so much so my sister fly’s out on Friday 2nd November, wish I was going back.
