This hotel was truly amazing. We travelled as 2 couples and a 6 month old baby. We were situated in block 14 which was very central and room very spacious. The resort itself was spotless. Due to the crisis in Cairo a lot of nationalities had stopped travelling so the hotel had a less than 50% capacity which meant a lot of empty sunbeds and and more room to move about freely.

This meant the animation team had to work extra hard to fulfil their activities and to ensure all guests were having a relaxing stay.

I don't normally socialise with anybody else on holiday but the animation team made that impossible due to their extreme friendliness and shining personalities.

These guys (and girls) work so hard and go right out of their way to ensure you are having the holiday you deserve.

Marley, Karem and the rest of team work so hard and made our holiday extra special. We thank you soooo much.

The A-La carte restaurants add an extra touch to your holiday too. It was so nice to have the option of eating in 1 of the many a-la carte restaurants every night instead of in the main buffet restaurant. The choice of having a set meal instead of buffet made our holiday better as the quality of meals in the a-la carte restaurants was truly tasty.

Overall this hotel was one of the nicest hotels we have stayed in and would definitely be back in the future.

Room Tip: Blocks 14-16 are very central next to main pool. Asian restaurant is by far the best and the tepanya...

not really sure where to start other than saying we had an amazing holiday!!
me and my partner took our 2 year old daughter here for 7 nights and honestly wish it had of been longer!
it was our first trip abroad as a family and after living in Tenerife for 2 years we wanted something different and seeing so many good reviews and recommendations for this place this is where we chose to go, from start to finish we loved every minute,
theres always pros and cons of anywhere you go but for the people throwing out complaints its not even worth mentioning! yes there was a lot of egyption families there (it is Egypt after all) but anything they did like letting their children go to the toilet in the swimming pool isn't down to the hotel or the staff, they were immediately asked to leave and the pool was closed, cleaned and then re opened when it was ok again! (the egyption families in general were polite and very friendly) that's the only thing we witnessed as unacceptable but not down to the hotel or the staff and shouldn't defer from how good this place is! asked if I would recommend or go here again my answer is quite simply YES!!
the staff work extremely hard especially the animation team who went out of their way to make sure you were having a good holiday, they made us feel like we had known them for a lot longer than a few days, they went out of their way to talk to us and spend time with us especially our little girl Emily, I have to say marley, boca and kareem we struck a good friendship with them, all brilliant guys and we will never forget them! they work all hours from 9am to 12/1 am with only one day off, nothing is too much trouble for these guys, they were even there on arrival introducing themselves and when we left at the end of our holiday waving us goodbye which by the way made me into an emotional wreck! thanks ;)
bar staff, waiters, chefs, bell boys and so on were all great, polite and again work very hard
we were in block 15 which was probably one of the best blocks to be in as its central to everything on the complex, there is 7 a la carte restaurants but the best one is definitely the Asian, and you can even book in for the teppanyaki at an extra cost but you only have to pay for your main, the starter, desserts and drinks are free, its well worth it as the food was absolutely amazing! for 2 adults and a child it was only £20
the pools and beach were great especially the water slides, think we enjoyed them more than our daughter ;) theres swim up bars in every pool, your towels are provided by the hotel free of charge, theres always plenty to do with the animation team or day trips, we did the scuba diving boat trip which was from 8.30 am to 3.30 pm, it was £60 for 2 adults and a toddler that included scuba diving for one and snorkelling with food and drinks provided, that was an experience in itself definitely not to be missed!
theres also shops on the complex, the guys who work and own the shops were all great but do be careful as they will try to charge you over the amount they will accept, barter with them and only offer to pay a third of their starting price! Mustafa who owns the bracelet and sand stall was a lovely guy his stall is definitely worth a visit don't miss the beach party/pool party on a sunday night, they alternate each week, loved it!
overall our holiday was brilliant and would definitely go back and for those worrying about the "upset" in Egypt at the minute theres no need, hurghada is 6 hours away and from we heard from families that live in cairo themselves it really isn't as bad as the news reports, you wouldn't even know anything was going on!
lastly when you get to the airport you will have to pay for your visa entry into the country, pay at the bank which is on the left as you walk into the airport it should only be £10, if you pay with your tour operator it will be more

I have just returned from my first trip to Egypt. My mum and I had a unforgettable week at Sunrise Royal makadi. Hotel staff and animation team were helpful and professional. As two females travelling alone we felt safe and secure. Don't be put off by what has happened recently in Cairo , you would never know there was a situation.

Room Tip: Blocks by the main pool have a great view and are nice and quiet.

my mother and I stayed here for 1 week and had a lovely time.

On arrival there was a bit of a wait to check in as there was around 60 people also checking in at the same time. so was very busy. however we was shown to our room and the service was good.

The complex is huge and the swimming pools are great, loads to choose from. directly on the beack which is nice.

The complex was very busy, and im guessing most if not all of the rooms were taken.

I found the sun loungers were reserved by people at silly o'clock in the moring which was very annoying as they didnt seem to return to the loungers until afternoon, which is very selfish, also the same with the beach people reserving the beds with the towles but not even there.

The buffet food was ok, but gets boring after a few days, which is good as they have 4 restaurants in the complex which you have to book for which we did for 3 nights, but sadly my mother and I become very ill on or 6th Day, and was seen by the doctor there who advised it is very common for people to get ill in Egypt. but apart from that the holiday was great.

One strange thing about the complex they make up their own time, which meant we was i think an hour infront of the rest of egypt. the hotel staff said its been like that for some time, and they do it so you get more sun time. some would say its a good thing, but for me i found odd.

The rooms were very big and clean.

Would return
