Just back from a 1 week stay at Makadi Palace. Rooms tired but clean. Staff were always pleasant and very helpful. Pools were all unheated even the one so called heated pool at the Grand Makadi was cold, we had 3 teenage boys who were not happy with that. My husband was disappointed he had to pay for the gym so he didn't bother with it. There were a lot of eating places. We found the dome a bit of a canteen and had problems finding a table and getting cutlery. You could easily be charged at the other restaurants if you were not careful, the Indian should be avoided as the portions are small and you have to pay for any good curries which can come without sauce.
Overall we all enjoyed ourselves.

Stayed: February 2014, traveled with family

Had to pay extra for lots of things, the gym, tennis, billiards, drinks if you're sat in certain areas, some things on the menus, mainly the fish and meat items. Tips are expected by staff all the time, and apart from a few members of staff most aren't very friendly and some are ignorant. Food isn't great, tasteless and most items have run out before the end of the meal session. The pools are freezing, not suitable for children and we had to pay extra to visit the sun wing water park next door or go to the makadi grand to use the heated pool, we couldn't get drinks or food there so not the best day out. All in all the Egyptians seem to be penny pinchers and we won't be returning ;-( we'll stick to the Caribbean all inclusive as they seem to know what they're doing!

Just returned from a great holiday at the makadi palace at makadi bay Egypt and we will certainly be returning. A lovely hotel with helpful staff ,beautiful well kept gardens and lovely clean pools,all five of them. The restaurants and food choices were excellent with plenty of variety to choose from.and attentive staff with an emphasive on cleanliness and hygiene.Nothing was too much trouble. The Managers special meal was a great success and was something I haven't come across before in a hotel.. They were very interested to hear how we were enjoying our holiday and if we had any concerns that they could act upon. The only one really was that no pools were heated and in the winter season that would have been an added bonus. The makadi bay area is lovely and is a great place to unwind .We will be back.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the pools and gardens ar just divine

This is a great all-inclusive hotel on the wonderful Red Sea. The rooms are large with sitting areas and balconies overlooking fabulous gardens. There is a range of restaurants to choose from, including those of the neighbouring Makadi Grand and Makadi Mall. The buffet restaurants are excellent, as are the hotel restaurants. The Makadi Mall restaurants are less good, with unenthusiastic staff and food that seemed to have been prepared much earlier. The two Mall restaurants we visited both said they could not serve coffee. This seemed to be due to laziness as the machine in the Chinese restaurant was working. The hotel restaurants were very different. Food was good, freshly prepared and the waiters were excellent. There are lots of reasonably priced excursions and water sports on-site. Beaches are very clean and the sea crystal clear. Overall, we had a really great stay, marred only by the poor service in the Makadi Mall restaurants. Recommended.
