SUNRISE Select Royal Makadi Resort
Ranked #11 of 30 Hotels in Makadi Bay
Reviewed 7 April 2012

We travel on several holidays a year but when we return to SRM its like returning to a very comfortable and friendly hotel. Mr Hashim guest relations and Barbara who answers the e-mail requests are dedicated to make our stay as comfortable as possible. We are 6 adults with no children and we sit at the V.I.P pool, a pool for adults only (families have 4 other large pools to use) Bassan the Bar Man looked after us what a gentleman. Mohammed we have known since our 1st visit to the hotel and he keeps that area immaculate again a very hard worker who has become a friend to all of us. As reported by so many the al a cartes are of high standard. Our favourite the Italian, Sayeed who is over the restaurant always has a smile and Khalid, Mohammed, Sayeed, make us so welcome and the food is in our opinion very good,the Asian comes a close 2nd and then the mediterranean Mexican and the fish, no complaints with any. Sad to say we didnt do the Steak House or the Bedouin this time as it was middle March and we found the evenings too cold to sit outside!! although we have heard that they intend to enclose the steak house, hope so. We like to play Boccio in the day and poor Midoooooo (very curly hair) tried sooo hard to get people to play, he always played in one of our teams so no rest for him, Mr Billy will be back in September Mido so be ready. We didnt watch the shows but used the very spacious lobby bar. One thing about this hotel, the staff WANT to serve you, they were around offering drinks all the time even when the Hotel was packed, I think a lot of the Russians were waiting to go home. All areas kept spotlessly clean including our room Block 14 bedding changed very regularly lovely fluffy towels( definate improvement on last time) They have started renovating the rooms, I believe block 18 is work in progress. For the amount of money we pay we get what it says on the packet, excellant service, good food, good hot weather, isnt that what holidays are all about, See everybody September. Thank you all. 5 stars given for all the above reasons

Room Tip: block 10 family pool. Block 14 15 16 near lobby.

Overall our holiday experience was very good especially the al a carte restaurants and the entertainment team were very friendly and professional with great entertainment during the day and shows in the evening.

The hotel is rated as 5 stars but our room standard was certainly not 5 stars but the al a carte restaurants, hotel facilities and staff made up for it.

I would have given this hotel a rating of excellent but on our last night the atmosphere in the Asian al a carte restaurant was spoiled due to the fact that there was an argument between the staff and a Russian family which ended up one of the waiters being pushed and breaking a wine bottle. The experience was very stressful especially for my 2 year old daughter. It was supposed to be a relaxing last night instead we had to watch this happen. This was a shame since until then our experience in all the other restaurants was excellent.

A bit of a tip which may help is try to avoid the main buffet restaurant as much as possible and try to use the smaller less busy Around the World Buffet restaurant for breakfast and lunch and the Al a Carte restaurants for dinner especially the Mexican, Italian, Bedouin, Steak Restaurants.

Overall very enjoyable family holiday with most of the staff at the hotel being extremely friendly and helpful.

The Sunrise Roayal Makadi Resort in Hurgada is a relaxing, chilled holiday. The accomodation is fantastic, bed really comfortable and big!!!
The restaurants there are fantastic, especially the steak house, the arab restaurant and the asian. All ala carte restaurants and with thomas cook are included in the all inclusive price.
The staff there cannot do enough for you and are a load of fun. I would definately go there again, and if anyone is looking for a relaxing chilled holiday, with great weather and people that want to do everything for you, then this is the resort.

I have not long returned from a week stay here. The hotel is beautiful, the staff are very friendly and happy to help. The rooms are clean and of a decent size however are not up to 5star standard.

Please note the Hotel is located in Makadi Bay - where there is noting. This area simply consists of a few hotels and the beach. Hurgarda town is a 20/30 min taxi ride away which costs around 200 Egyption dollas (£20 return).

The complex is perfect for a relaxing stay - there are several pools which are all a great size.
I wasn't impressed with the food in the main buffet hall - however i am extremely fussy. There are several other restaurants also in the complex, during our stay we managed to try the Italian, Asian, Arab and Steak all of which were lovely.

The hotel is located on the beech which is where we spent our time during the day, as its much more lively - suited us better.

Whilst on holiday i celebrated my birthday the staff brought me a cake and made a big deal singing happy birthday which i found quite embarrassing however :) it was a lovely gesture.
We plan on returning and would defiantly stay at this hotel again as the service itself is impossible to fault.

It appears from the previous reviews I've read that we all clearly have differing standards and expectations. Having been to different parts of Egypt I was under no illusion what to expect from a 5 star hotel.

The rooms were pleasant and clean with large bathrooms and white and blue decor. Ours had the same painting on adjacent walls!

The complex is huge and has a number of a la carte restaurants which are themed. These are well worth a visit and can easily be booked on a touch screen computer in reception. We particularly liked the Asian one. The main restaurant is as expected, large, busy and sometime you are having to bite your tongue at the rude Russians. The food is average but no worse than any other hotel I've stayed in Egypt or Turkey. They are catering for many nationalities so it's varied to say the least.

The beach area is small and there were a few jellyfish on the beach however these were quite harmless and disappeared when the tide went back out - not stingers!

There were plenty of sun loungers, no arguing over beds or towel. Just pretend you're asleep or reading when the tour salesmen come round - they can get really annoying!

The gym opens at 10am and has some really good equipment. Plenty of cardio and the selection of weights and strengthening machines were almost as good as any UK gym.

Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed the week away and particularly the adult only pool!

Just arrived back from this wonderful resort.Hotel perfect,weather perfect,beach perfect and very close by,pools are lovely although a little murky and very slippy to get into.....take care when taking children in as we did see a few slip and bang their heads.Main restaurant was manic with no organisastion however we decided to use the med restaurant for breakfast and lunch which was much quieter.I decided to have a manicure and pedicure whilst there,in the room their was a female doing my nails and a male doing my feet they asked me if i spoke any Arabic when i said no they started speaking it and laughing uncontrollaby i felt totally humiliated i was supposed to go back 4 days later for a second treatmement but decided against it,but that was the only real complaint.Will i go back there?for sure.

Room Tip: Not block 10 if you like a siesta
