What is at Souk Makadi 'shopping centre' in Makadi Bay?

Hi there, travelling for the first time to Makadi Bay with a young family, what shops are there at the Souk Makadi? Is it the usual souvenirs or is there a supermarket which has things I can buy for an infant - nappies and glass jars of food? Anyone know if there is a laundrette or do I need to use hotel laundry service? I read there was also a bank - does it have an ATM machine or just a counter with exchange service? Anyone ever had to visit a doctor while in Makadi Bay - good or bad experiences? Thanks to all for the answers and any tips....

The chemist is also very good in Tia heights for the old Pharoahs revenge. Don't muck about with anything from the UK. Just go see him and for abouut £8 you will be right as rain in 12 hours Its not the food or anything like that, the change of enviroment and very cold drinks being poured into a hot body does it for most people.

Makadi bay is lovely, we are on our way back to sunrise this friday. Can't wait!!!!!

There is a small supermarket on the road outside the main Souk which stocks various items that Europeans may be looking for. Prices are fixed here, unlike the shops in the Souk where you are expected to haggle- also, as you might expect, the prices are on the expensive side. Further along the same road towards the golf course you will find a bank with an ATM.

My wife and I are making our tenth visit to the Makadi Marine on November 27th. Have a good holiday!
