Once you get past the tired rooms and the poor wi-fi this hotel really is great value for your money. The pool is enormous and they're are plenty of sun loungers, the service from the lads around the pool is great and you are regularly brought drinks without having to constantly trying to attract someone's attention.

When arriving at Hurghada, make sure you branch off to the right going towards the agents, go to the bank for your Visa. All the agents are still overcharging for visa applications. Now its £5 extra per person, go to the Bank. Grand Mackardi hotel is a bit tired due to lack of visitors, however, the staff are very friendly... More

Headed to hotel with great anticipation and looking forward to standards previously experienced over my last 8 visits to Egypt. Unfortunately it was not delivered. I cannot agree with the reviewer who said not to go by official rating because it's Egypt as I have always booked 5* and it has been delivered every time until now. Bathrooms are a... More

My first time at the Grand Makadi Hotel exceeded my expectations. The room was clean, quiet and spacious.

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
