I had an icecream there and...

Four hour flight, no jet lag and guaranteed sun. This alone makes Egypt the best bet from Europe. I was pleasantly surprised with the Makadi for my first trip to Egypt. Normally I would not stay at large resorts, but smaller boutique hotels. The facilities were excellent, service very friendly and the resort is probably the best bet in the...

My sister in law and I are never disappointed with the Grand Makadi. All the staff we come in contact with are helpful and friendly. Special mention to Jessica, Customer Relations, and Mustafa on reception who sorted out a few minor problems we had very quickly and efficiently.

Our family stayed one week at Grand Makadi in April. We come here several times a year, because it is such a beautiful place to relax. The hotel offers a wide range of nice food and the staff is always kind. And even in winter/spring, you can enjoy the sunny weather at beach or go swimming/ snorkeling at the house...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Grand Makadi Hotel is a lively destination with the needs of younger families firmly at its heart. There is a large sweeping beach, and a jetty that takes guests directly to the house reef where they can enjoy snorkelling in the crystal clear Red Sea waters. The large swimming pool and sun terrace offer plenty of space for sunbathing, and the children’s club and sporting activities keep the children occupied. Add a diverse choice of restaurants and it really is an ideal base for enjoying all the Red Sea has to offer. ... more   less
