I had a fantastic time at makadi saraya, it definatley fufilled all of my expectations and made my visit to egypt not just a good one but a fantastic one. The Staff were brilliant, the reception, bar staff, poolside staff, cleaners all of them were excellent, my personal favourites were the animation team, they were so friendly and they kept me busy with loads of different acitivites and games, football, water polo, limbo etc during my stay. when you get to the hotel be sure to look out for a member of the animation team called adam, this man made my holiday one of the best ive ever had he made me laugh so much, he was more than helpful n had a great personality.

The food at saraya wasn't the best cuisine ive come across whilst abroad but i wudn't say it was terrible it just wasn't fantastic but the staff were more than happy to listen to your opinions and they made an effort to cater to your requests, the deserts were always nice though :) The beach is only five minutes away from the hotel n the sea is amazin, definatley buy a snorkel and check out the sea life there because its beautiful ive never been anywhere like it before its really something else. The nightlife isn't all that great in the resort but theres several bars to check out and theres the sheisha bar where the animation team put on a show every night to go to. The Shop keepers are a bit persistent in the resort but you learn how to handle them after a couple of days, there really friendly just a bit full on, you just have to accept there way of doing buisness.

I really enjoyed my stay at makadai saraya, 100% i would suggest it to a friend and would love to go back. it was definatley a holiday to remember, i really didnt want to come home.

Stayed here for one week only as i came to dive. The overall experience was ok for Egypt but the hotel could do better. The room, of average size for Egypt, was cleaned everyday - and the bathroom was spotless, however the rugs, table surfaces, light switches, tv, remote, etc were all dirty - not good in a hot country in which contagious stomach upsets are rampant. I did feel sick all week, however it was mild. I brought spray disinfectant with me, so it could have been worse. The food was good, varied, and healthy. The beach was a 10 min walk away and the beach was lovely but the snorkelling was the poorest Ive seen in Egypt (I go 3 times a year to dive, and go to different hotels each time), due to the coral being damaged, although it is recovering. For beginner snorkellers it would be enough, but if you've been elsewhere in the Red Sea you would notice the difference.
Overall I would say that the holiday was fine and the hotel was ok, but other hotels (such as the Iberotel Coraya in Marsa Alam) make much more effort, with tea/coffee in the room for no charge, laundry no charge, slippers and robe etc, all for a comparative price. And the snorkelling there is MUCH better, ditto anywhere else in Sharm, Dahab, or Nuweiba. You did get hassle from the local shopkeepers, and every second man wants to know if you are married. Its tedious, and Ive stayed in other places where this kind of low level harassment is less noticeable, such as Taba, Marsa Alam, Dahab. But the diving here is pretty good, and if you come for that you wont be disappointed. I dived with Sub Aqua Divers, a German owned company in the north of the bay who picked me up every morning. I would highly recommend them, they were warm and professional and I would go back there definitely.

The hotel is wonderful-except for one thing. I was saddened by the manner in which Iberotel is able to take advantage of Egyptian workers. I saw the same workers-working in the early morning and again late at night. The hotel is full of very poorly paid Egyptians who can not complain about their working conditions or they will be easily replaced. We were able to talk with the workers in Arabic and I felt very badly for them. How is it that Egypt has sold its best beaches to foreign countries and then closed them to the public? Why is it that Iberotel can not pay their Egyptian employees a decent wage when the hotel is packed with Germans and Russians. This hotel is a great bargain for Europeans and someone is getting rich in the process.

My partner and I stayed here for a week. Dont listen to people who moan about lack of brits etc - go to Benidorm if you want that! This hotel is fantastic. The pools, restuarants, bars, beach etc are all 10 out of 10. I make a point of never going back to the same place but I would definately go back here at the drop of a hat. You will not be disappointed.
