Travelled March 2016, first time in Egypt and we were pleasantly surprised. The hotel has so much choice for a la carte due to hotel sharing with sister properties and the Makadi Mall. Staff were very friendly and polite. The room was clean and spacious, we had a junior suite by the pool. Decent TV channels for that after sun/before...

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
