The hotels slogan is "welcome home" and oh how true that is we have just returned last night from our 10th visit to this hotel and can only say that our expectations (which are very high) were exceed yet again, I will not repeat what I have said in all of my previous review for this hotel as you can read my thoughts in the links below, But rest assured that following the recent revolution in Egypt there has been no impact on quality or service provided at this hotel, The Management and staff go out of there way to make your holiday one to remember and it was great to see the occupancy levels rising steadily quit a feat in the current climate as many hotels in Hurghada are still closed.
I would recommend Makadi bay to anyone wanting an Egyptian Holiday and for the bestt hotel you need look no further than Sunrise select royal makadi resort and spa.
My only wish is that we did not have to wait a full eight weeks before we return.

Why the birds,
Around the world restraunt was overrun with the things for the first three days of our holiday but on the fourth day the main restraunt opened and all was well OK. We did not use the Around the world restraunt except for breakfast and used the 3 a la carte for our main meals for those 3 days and the food was very good although it seems from other holiday makers the quality in all 3 was a bit hit and miss at times. The room ( 18105 ) was nice if a bit boxy but a very comfy bed over rules any negatives and an excellent cleaner did his job well ( shame the hotel only seems to pay low level staff £30 a MONTH as they earn it, and any tip is well accepted). This room is adjacent to the Adult only pool and sunbathing VIP area, very nice situation next to the beach with comfy beds. Entertainment we did not need or use as we are self sufficient ( thanks to Eric and Maureen ) and the lobby bar. Most of the staff are excellent but one or two could do with more training as they let the side down especially around the pool bars as they would just stand around talking amongst themselves while you helped yourself to drinks and ice creams. The towel station lads were really on top of the game ( book libraries were to be found at these point also, free) and a good laugh anytime. The main restraunt decore is a bit drab to english tastes i feel and could do with brightening up a lot. The food in here was never a dissapointment and the selection was good on all meals for all inclusive. Hand a few £1 coins out from time to time and service level goes up. Would i go again, for the £612 each we paid for 14 nights it would be hard to pass on really. Any questions just ask, i will try to help

The hotel is also fine. The a la carte resaturants are wonderfull especially Asian.
During our stay were lots of people from Ukraine, as well as one guy from Lithuania with his family. This Lithuanian guy was always proud of himself and always telling how much money he has despite the fact that he was dresssed awfull :)) hahaha

I am a British Travel Agent and booked this as a last minute deal as the price was too good to resist!!
On arrival my partner and I were amazed at how big the resort was and it was very well presented!! We was welcomed with a glass of apple juice and a staff member gave us our room keys, towel cards and discount cards for the spa.
We was all shown to our rooms, luckily we had one of the best rooms possible as we couldnt be closer to the pool and restaurants! If anyone had walking difficulties and was far out then they had small golf car type vehicles to take people to there rooms. We arrived when it was getting dark and the hotel was all light up and was very pretty!
Was very impressed with the room! Huge bed, massive bathroom and walk in shower, mini bar was restocked everyday with bottled water a pop. Bed changed everyday and fresh towels everyday unless you are willing to use them everyday. Little things such as having a plug near a mirror is a big help when us women are trying to get ready!!

Only downfall was the main restaurant was closed for the 1st 3 days we were there meaning they was using the international restaurant as the main restaurant. Food in the main restaurant was brilliant alot of variety, tables were cleared straight away or if you sat at a table the staff were there straight away with new knifes and forks and napkins. We used all A la Carte restaurants which were also very good. The hotel were very good in we asked them on the day if they could fit us in for that night and they went out of there way to do so which we really did appreciate. Pool snack bar was also good with handmade pizzas, burgers, chips etc.. sometimes there was a queue for the pizzas but this couldnt be helped as they were fresh!

Staff very friendly... sometimes a little to friendly towards me. But I felt ok as i was with my partner who they loved as they called him "egyptian man" even though hes jamaican/english which we found amusing. They also told him to keep in touch with email adresses etc...

main big pool was too cold to go in but could imagine in the heat in July/Aug would be a gods-sent!! sports pool was heated!

LOVED the hot chocolate machine and the shisha cafe!!

I was very very impressed with this hotel and as a Travel Agent I would definately push this hotel where ever I can as i definately think it is worth a visit!

We had booked to go to Sunrise Holiday resort in Hurghada but on arrival at the airport we were told that the hotel had staffing problems,they were on strike, this was confirmed to us later in the week.We were redirected to the Sunrise Makadi Bay resort.We were allocated a room on the periphery of the resort. The next morning we attended the rep meeting and were informed that we could go back to the the Sunrise Holiday hotel but in the light of day we were more than happy to stay. We were transferred to a room nearer the centre of the resort and settled down for our holiday.The rooms are clean bright and airy with air conditioning, safe, fridge which is replenished when required, tv with BBC world news channel all free to use. the bathroom was large with a walk in shower with plenty of hot water at all times.
We used all of the restaraunts and were not disappointed we had no problems with birds or any other creatures interfering with our food. the waiters and bar staff were all very attentive and were pleasant and polite at all times.There was never a problem finding sunbeds either at the beach or at any of the five pools and the towel service is excellent, fresh laundered towels every time you need one for the pool or beach!

We went on a boat trip which was organised by the guys at the beach jetty attached to the hotel, this was excellent value (cheaper and easier than the Thomas Cook tour) we were out all day, visited a beautiful beach and three snorkelling sites with the help of the boat guides.
food and drink were provided.
The Lobby bar is open 24 hours (20 serving alcohol ).
As we were with friends we did not use the entertainment but it was available throughout the day and in the evening, we did sit at the outside bar and listen to the singers a couple of times this was very pleasant.

Considering this was not the holiday we had booked we were very pleased and would return here again for a perfect winter sun holiday.Thanks to Colin and Gillian for excellent companionship.
