Tia Heights Makadi Bay
Ranked #23 of 30 Hotels in Makadi Bay
Reviewed 10 July 2012

We stayed at the hotel from 15.06.12 - 25.06.12. Had a promo room which was large, quiet and had a nice view. There were only 6 brits there at the time.

The hotel is geared food wise to the Russians and Eygptians but you should be able to find something good to eat.

We met Mike Booker, the General Manager, who is excellent at his job. He introduced us to the Chef Abel Elsatar who was excellent and made sure we had fish or chicken most days. If you do have any problems then I recommend you speak to him as he was so helpful. Also Gaber the head waiter was brilliant and made us feel like special guests.
The barman (with the glasses) in the main bar in the hotel does a brilliant gin and tonic and again is happy and excellent at his job.

Unfortunately Mike has now left the hotel and we wish him every success in his new venture. Thanks for making our holiday so good Mike.

I would definitely go back to this hotel and it would be good to have more Brits there, although this was not a problem for us. If you are all inclusive and like water parks, there is an enormous one in the hotel grounds which is free.

Room Tip: We asked for a high, quiet room

The rooms here we're beautiful, clean and well equiped. Staff fantatic, and facilities good. Sadly ALL the travellers we we're with, and who we spoke to we're sick, violent vomiting, cramps, & runs. Everyone bar, none suffered the same fate...........doctor was extreamly busy and doing a huge trade!!
But having said that, if you can cope its ok. Makadi Bay is beautiful, the locals are too, very welcoming.
And its hot, hot, hot ;) Pool was FREEZING!!

Room Tip: Dune rooms/pool rooms good

My and my boyfriend decided to go to Egypt this year from 22.6.-29.6.2012. And i must say, i most certanly wasn't dissapointed! The hotel Tia Heights was beautiful, we spent a lot of time in Aquapark. The staff is very nice and always ready to help. We loved the food, we also had a VIP dinner in the fish restaurant, and it was delicious! The rooms are nice and clean every day. We will go there next year also!

Room Tip: Aqua Rooms are near the Aquapark.

A large hotel on the coast of the Red sea.
Perfect for a romantic holiday because it has large territory, many pools and bars.
Hotel has a medium size reef in the sea next to its territory, which makes possible to snorkel and dive within hotel's borders.

Room Tip: spend some time in Pool Bar

My husband and I have just returned from a 7 night stay at this wonderful hotel from June 9th to June 16th. We have stayed at Tia Heights for many years and keep returning as it is such a wonderful place to chill, relax and recharge the batteries before returning to Luxor to run our Holiday apartment rental business.
We had rooms in the main building overlooking the pool and sea in the distance and it is worth paying the extra to be in the main block.Many thanks to Michael, the General Manager who sorted out a booking problem with Travel Republic on arrival. Room was always clean with plenty of bottled water and soft drinks provided as well as kettle/tea/coffee. If this is not in your room you only have to ask and it will be brought for you.
Beach is wonderful with lots of sun beds. Pool is huge and very clean and we preferred the quiet pool in front of the far wing of hotel away from the crowds and children.
Food was good and plentiful so also thanks to Chief chef Hasheem and all the other chefs and the many kichen and serving staff.Nothing was too much trouble for them. We tried 2 of the speciality restaurants--- fish and steak and both were exceptional.
All the staff--management,reception, room,pool,restaurant,bar and animation are an asset to this hotel and they will do everything they can to make your stay special.
We would recomment Tia Heights to anyone with no hesitation.

Tia Heights, Makadi Bay is an absolutely wonderful resort. It is very well managed by the Manager, Mike Booker, whom catered for our every need, he was always on hand if we needed him and very accomodating. The hotel was clean, spacious, air-conditioned and not over-crowded. All the staff were friendly, welcoming and would do everything for you. The staff go above and beyond thier call of duty, to give you the best possible experience whilst you stay. The chefs are on hand to advise on the menu, whilst you take time to decide on what you will choose. There is so much choice, a diverse menu, all freshly cooked, good ingredience.

The pool area is clean, and well kept. Everyday, the pool attendants would be cleaning the huge pool. You never felt claustrophobic, as the pool and lounge/sunbed area is huge, so you could sunbathe in peace. The amenities with the entertainment team are also very good (night and day), so you can get involved if you feel the need, or they cater extremely well for familes with children. There is a pool bar and also a restaurant at the pool, so you don't need to go up to the hotel for lunch if you so desire. You can walk along manicured lawns, along well set out paths to the beach which is attached directly to the front of the property, easy reach, clean, great sunbeds with shade, plenty of them, for the hotel only. The sea is wonderful, warm, clean, soft sand, and there is a coral area quite close to the shore, so you don't need to be an expert diver or snorkeller to see the most beautiful coral fish, great experience!!

The evening is catered for with the entertainment team, but you can also just sit out looking at the stars, with a drink and a shisha pipe, very relaxing. There are small restaurants over looking the beach, if you fancy a change ffrom the main restaurants.

I would thoroughly recommend this hotel to friends, couples, families. Its a wonderful experience, well situated, clean, accomodating. I would definately re-visit Tia Heights, Makadi Bay
Kind Regards

Dear Clare and Will sincere thanks for taking the time to write about your positive stay with us at tia Heights. It was great to welcome you both as I enjoyed your company a great deal-my inspection trips around the pool are not the same now - I miss Will's sense of humour and Clare's dress sense and therefore hope to see you again in the not too distant future.

Myself and my partner stayed at the Tia Heights from the 30th May 2012 for one week. The hotel is impressive. The common parts are kept very clean. We had a room in the main building overlooking the pool which was very nice. The general manager is a Mr Michael Booker who runs a very efficient ship. All the staff are very eager to please and do everything they can to make your stay great. We had already spent a week on a Nile cruise, but when we do Egypt again we will return to the Tia Heights for at least 2 weeks. The hotel has two resturants in the main building, if you want a quieter meal experience use the Safaga resturant as the main resturant can get very busy. There are other resturants on site. We ate at the Steakhouse which was excellent. The chinese looked good and the italian was also good. You never have to fight for a sunbed on the beach as there are hundreds. We would recommend the Tia Heights to anyone.

Room Tip: Request a room in the main building as these are more convenient for the resturants and bars.
