The hotel is around half an hour - 45 minutes from the airport. Quite a drive but my partner and I were so excited to be in Egypt that it didn't matter. We arrived at the reception, was told to take a seat until someone was ready to meet and greet. We were immediately told we had been upgraded, we...

I won't go into massive amounts of detail as I usually do on my reviews, as I travelled with my mum who is the review from 17th October. She says most of it. We stayed from 30th September for 7 nights. I had emailed red sea holidays and the hotel directly to arrange a surprise (I always do this and...

WE had a lovely holiday in the Grand Makadi in September despite my husband feeling ill from getting off the Tompson flight (which he blames for the chest infection he developed- but who knows?)

this certainly isn't a five star hotel, but we booked late and for the cheap price it wasn't a total disaster. The reef is good for snorkelling, though you will need beach shoes to wade out as it is very rocky The hotel and its grounds are attractive and the main pool area very pleasant with a huge, refreshingly cool...

I've just come back from a fab holiday at the Grand Makadi. The bath was old and you would not have a bath in it! We had a nice room and a massive balcony. You are requested not to hang bath towels, swimwear over the balconies to dry, which is a bit of a pain. We just hung our swimwear...

This hotel is run by Red Sea Resorts and they’re not the most accommodating bunch I’ve ever encountered. Regardless of who you get your bargain holiday deal through, you’ll almost certainly end up on a cramped 757 and then get bussed to the Makadi by a Red Sea coach. First impressions are good, the lobby is palatial and very clean....

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
