Just returned from Stella Makadi, 18-25 Oct. Had a very nice week here, very nice hotel lovely and clean, gardens kept immaculate, weather perfect 30's with a nice breeze. Staff work really hard and are very friendly, stayed in block 7000 very quiet, lovely views of the garden.Nice room we had a triple room 2 twins pushed together which made a huge 7' bed very comfy ,son had a proper single bed. Food was excellent a different theme every night hubby is a fussy eater and even he was impressed with selections, beach bar great for lunches freshly cooked snacks. Spent most of the time on the beach made friends with the guys selling trips. Highly recommend the 4 island trip booked with the Dolphin House Aqua Centre on the beach (Hi Moses) great day, lots of snorkeling in gorgeous seas with lunch on board,Paradise Beach with its turquoise waters stunning, life jackets were provided for those who are'nt strong swimmers and as a first time snorkeler like me it was great seeing the different corals and the fish , and the high light of the trip was seeing Dolphins on the way back they can't guarantee this so we felt priviliged to have seen them swimming beside the boat, and jumping in the waves. We also did Horse riding in the desert with the Seahorse riding centre also on the beach ( Hi Abdul and Casenova), very safe horses , hats and chaps provided if you want them horses to suit different abilities , galloping in the desert is truly amazing and the sunset was stunning! Quad biking in the desert also with the guys on the beach , again great bunch of guys we had such a laugh. Its definately worth haggling to get the prices down as with most of the trips. Cons weak alcohol, you certainly wont get drunk. Brits in the minority mainly German. Thought pools could have been a bit warmer.
I'd say its a very nice 4* good value for money.
