First of all anyone giving this hotel a negative review seriously needs to get into perspective what is expected from a holiday at this resorts level and the price you pay for it……..IT WAS TRULY FANTASTIC!!.
Myself and my husband have just returned from the most relaxing and enjoyable honeymoon, the hotel itself is fantastic with all the modern luxuries of a 5* hotel. The rooms are a brilliant size with the biggest beds I have ever seen! The air con whilst being a little on the noisy side did a great job of keeping the rooms to a very welcoming cool level after basking in the wall to wall sunshine and 40◦ heat daily!! There are currently 5 restaurants in the hotel and after eating at all but 1(due to not eating fish) we could not say anything bad about the food or the quality of it AT ALL but I must say the steak and Asian were the most enjoyable for us. The staff were very friendly and attentive throughout the hotel especially the infinity pool bar boys and the Asian restaurant waiters (Ali does great tricks!!).Part of the hotel spa is still under construction but not at any time did this disrupt our holiday in anyway as the noise is kept to a minimum. The infinity pool was amazing – a little piece of heaven in the sunshine. The snorkelling is great and must be experienced but shoes are most needed .Clean beach towels are brought to your room every evening along with a plate of canapés. Tipping is NOT taken for granted by any of the staff we met, but we did tip the pool bar guys as they were so attentive at all times, and also our room guy who left us amazing towel sculptures, daily …. I’m sure they go to towel folding master classes!!!!! .
We will defiantly be returning to The Makadi Spa sooner rather than later and can’t wait to see the finished results. So if you are looking for a relaxing holiday, on which all you have to think about, is which cocktail to order next??…… then this is the place for you!

The hotel was exceptional, the service outstanding and the food delightful - little touches like afternoon canapes in the room, and the towel sculptures all went to making it a fabulous holiday, only problem was that it was too short. If and do hope when you go say Hi to Anthony who runs the pool bar - the happiest chap I have ever met!! - will be going back soon

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view on the 1st floor

We stayed at the Makadi Spa for one week early July. We arrived at night and the sight of the Makadi Spa complex is wonderful. Looking around during the day we were delighted to see that the resort is beautiful, clean and well attended by the staff. The junior suite is very stylish and immaculate and the air-con is fairly noisy, but works OK.
We overlooked the infinity pool/red sea. The little balcony is well furnished and it was a joy to look out and see the resort as the views were fabulous. The resort is children free and this is reflected in the peaceful and tranquil resort. No inflatables, loud music or entertainers trying to press gang you into doing something ‘fun’!
The hotel is new so is still a work in progress but DO NOT let that stop you from coming here. There is minimal/almost none-existent noise of any building work as they work on completing the International Buffet Restaurant, which will be a welcome addition. The food is outstanding in the restaurants, and in particular the Asian Restaurant. The staff excels at being attentive, both in the restaurants and in the pool bar. Nothing is too much trouble and they will go out of their way to make your stay special. There is no pressure to tip but we did as the service was without fault and well deserved. The only slightly negative points I could make is that in the lounge bar the drinks, especially the cocktails, are hit and miss. This is just exuberance from the bar staff to try and ‘spice up’ your drink and make it ‘special’ for you.
You must try snorkelling whilst you are here. Just walk down to the beach and into the sea. It is like being in a tropical fish tank. You must get some beach shoes as the coral is sharp and the beach is very hot to walk on. The coral reefs are roped off for protection.
If you are looking for sun, sea and relaxation then here is the place for you. We were so impressed we will be going back in December!

Hi i have just returned Saturday morning with my boyfriend after staying in the Makadi spa for a week..

one word WOW!!

on arrival they could not of been more attentive freezing cold flannels and orange juice while to our bags were escorted to our rooms and we were shown to our rooms.

the hotel its self is to a standard that is impeccable.

cleanliness is excellent and the the staff were so friendly and could not of bent over backwards enough, beach boys laid your towels out and carried them to your sun loungers also.

rooms cleaned daily and fresh towels also.

Breakfast was very basic , i thought was very German orientated but still very nice waiter were fantastic!

Thai restaurant was amazing we went 3 times.. steak one was good and fish also we tried to Mexican also 200metres from hotel and Thai which were also very nice indeed.

Makadi spa hotel is to be the Jewel of the resort and my god is it not!!

i could not fault anything, i did get a dhia. and sickness while i was there but it did not spoil our holiday, i would go back tomorrow and do it all again.

we did the Badawaya and catamaran excursions i would recommend HIGHLY.

the weather was HOT HOT HOT... i took factor six silly mistake i burnt and blistered factor 30.

rock shoes is a must you can get your snorkels there free of charge.

night time entertainment was rubbish but we went for a romantic holiday and didn't need anyone else's company but our own.

We are planning to go back there next year as it was the best place we have both ever been.
i hope you have a fantasic holiday and please bring back the sun!!!

i am very jealous of you all :) x

Don't pay attention to any of the bad reviews about this hotel,God knows what is wrong with some people! As a couple who are seasoned travellers worldwide,we can honestly say that we have never stayed in a hotel of such quality.There was a couple of teething problems as staff are still in training and it is a new hotel after all,but nothing drastic to complain about.
The hotel is beautiful,despite not being fully finished.It was only the spa and buffet restaurant that wasn't finished.Next to no building work noise,so don't be worried about that.You are spoilt for choice with being able to use all the other sister hotels facilities,so much so that in a week we still didn't find everything.The Asian restaurant in the Spa comes highly recommend,never had such beautiful food ever.We would also recommend the Thai restaurant.
It was my Husband's Birthday whilst we were there.He recieved a cake and Happy Birthday letter from management,then that evening we went to the Thai restaurant where we were seated at a decorated table,then given a lovely meal on par or even better than what we ate whilst in Thailand,then all the staff surrounded our table and sang Happy Birthday in English,then Arabic;then to top it all off another cake with candles appeared for us.How many people have been on holiday whilst it is there Birthday and been treeted like this by the hotel they are staying in?Definetly won't forget.
If you have never been snorkling before you must try it whilst here.Just purely off the beach it is like being in a tropical fish tank,it is beautiful.Buy beach shoes because of the coral sand.,it is sharp and also very hot to walk on.Was nice to see the coral reefs roped off to protect them.if you want sun,sea and relaxation here is the place for you.

Room Tip: Junior suites overlooking the swimming pool are out of this world,sheer luxury and huge.Only one sli...

Ignore any negative comments about this hotel - they must be from pedants. This was our 8th Red Sea trip and this hotel is head and shoulders above any other that we have stayed - it is on a par with the Sonesta St George in Luxor. Our room was huge and had a great view. Plus points for us:- no children, no loud music, no "forced" entertainment, no constant visits from masseurs/sellers/trips out, waiter service not buffet, a la carte food of high standard, mini bar restocked daily at no extra charge, own beach/pool towels and carry bag, towels changed daily by room service accompanied by snacks, lovely afternoon cakes from the lobby bar, very friendly staff who enjoy a good laugh. There is some small ongoing building work, it is not intrusive at all. Our only criticism is the lack of tip boxes for staff - it's not easy to be fair as all the staff are brilliant and go the extra mile for you. A further benefit is the use of all the facilities of 3 adjacent hotels at no extra charge, but they can't use the Makadi Spa. When you return from a meal or drink there (some of their restaurants are excellent - Thai for example) you will appreciate how good the Makadi Spa is. Enjoy!

The Makadi Spa is billed as a 5 star hotel , butin reality is a little closer to 4 stars I think.
During our stay , the hotel was only 20% full , and as a consequence the Hotel Staff we extremely attantive, and provided a friendly warm service.
Hotel does not allow Children , which was an added bonus. The rooms are spacious , and very well appointed , and air conditioning very effective.
Outside pool areas were outstanding, with the infinity pool overlooking the Red Sea giving great views , and cold enough to be refreshing.

Onsite restaraunts were superb, with the Sea Food Restaraunt overlooking the sea , probably taking first place.

Small annoyance was the building work ongoing. Hotel is only 50 % completed , and while noise etc were kept to an absolute minimum , the completion ofthe new International restaraunt , providing may different cuisines , will add a much needed variety of palces to get Lunch.
