We travelled with two children, aged 5 and 7. From booking to returning home the whole experience was a pleasure. With online check in question in UK airports were minimal and the process easy. We had preselected our seats at no extra cost and were sat together both ways. When we landed in Hurgarda there was a fee to get in ... It is MUCH cheaper if you py in sterling, around £18 each including kids. The good news is you don't pay on departure! Once you get through the transfer is pleasant and easy taking you right to the door. Makadi Bay itself is a resort made up of a few dozen hotels and shops which appears to be a gated complex where the bus is thoroughly checked by security on its way in and out. This made us feel safe!
Upon arrival at the hotel it is quite obvious that the decor is tasteful and elegant. We were welcomed with fresh juice and snacks and the had a lift right to our room. What a delight ... We had a self-catering style apartment even though we were all inclusive. We had a lounge, tv separate bedroom and bathroom etc. the whole apartment felt very clean and attractive.
We were impressed with the pool areas and the general feel of the resort and bar areas. Breakfast was lovely and a good variety that ou could choose different every day. There are 5 alacarte restaurants and all are unlimited all inclusive. The grill and the Chinese were the best in our opinion and we made a second visit to each. Centrally located close to evening entertainment sitting outside was lovely.
The temp in early May when we visited was between 33*c and 38*c. This is one of the main reasons we returned to Egypt. Sharm el Sheik where we previously stayed was lovely, but this place in Makadi Bay was so much more developed, so much more mature in greenery and just whole rounded a more superior holiday destination. Highly recommended on our list of places to return to!
