Thought I did enough research before choosing Makadi Spa; the food is very good compared to where we usually stay in Egypt and yes the rooms are wonderful however both myself and my husband have had the dreaded stomach trouble...we have never experienced this before where we usually stay so something is not being prepared here correctly. The pools look wonderful too however you have to be up very early to get a decent quiet spot...most of the pool area seems like you are ontop of each other ( this is even worse on the beach where beds are lined up in regimented rows ...again not giving you much privacy). I had read that reserving beds was not allowed...this seems to have slipped again, no one enforces this so beds are reserved for a lot of the time with no occupants . Staff are ok nothing wonderful and once again compared to where we usually stay well below the standard we have come to expect . Small details are annoying...only white sugar offered with tea and coffee again would expect more from 5*, took three days of asking before we managed to get milk for our tea in the room. No water on fridge when we arrived in evening only fizzy drinks...could not make a tea or coffee as we had no milk or water. So as for our next holiday I think we shall be returning to our usual Miramar/Hyatt in Taba Heights...to be honest it is getting past it's best in the way of rooms..ye old large tv! However it has lots of space , beautiful gardens wonderful staff ; can't wait to get back there!! Just remembered :hotel does not reply to any emails from yourself or from company you book with so should you have any questions or requests you have no idea if anyone has received them ...bad manners!
