SUNRISE Select Royal Makadi Resort
Ranked #11 of 30 Hotels in Makadi Bay
Reviewed 20 March 2014

March 2014 - this second visit to the hotel for my wife and myself and was no less enjoyable than the first, last year. Having contacted the hotel in advance of travelling to request rooms on a ground floor and not too far from the beach, (for friends we persuaded to join us this year),we had a excellent rooms that we were very pleased with. During our 10 day stay the staff were very pleasant and nothing was too much trouble. The speciality restaurants were a particular favourite for my wife and myself and we visited five different ones during our stay - but the Asian has to be our number one favourite. The staff continually asked if we were enjoying ourselves and we had ample opportunity to state any problems/ issues we had to improve our stay. The animation team were excellent and their happy attitude was infectious and endearing - a great bunch of people. The sandy beach is one of the best we have visited with easy sloping access to the sea, safe for children. Although there are limited things to do outside of the hotel in this area of Hurghada we were happy to stay and enjoy the hotel facilities. Overall this hotel ticked all of our requirements - location, food and value for money.

Me and my wife ,have just returned from a week @ this hotel, this is our second time ,Well as usual we are not surprised,as the hotel runs a tight ship, staff/entertainment. I would recommend this hotel to anybody, Entertainment team come round everyday checking all is ok, made time to listen to you, big thanks to AKMED/NATALIE/JOHN ,too many to mention,sorry if missed you off, but they all do a great job.Food very good ,7 resturants and food hall, the barmen to all bars, where always on hand to serve you, cant praise the staff highly enough , one issue I had was the price of some tablets I required, left @ home, bought on site for £8 ,after bartering down from £24, but that was my own fault for forgetting them, will be back next year @ some point.Other tip would be to use the a la carte resturants, asain was our fave, but others just as good

It was a fantastic holiday. Great hotel with service at the highest level. Everything was an unqualified: area well maintained hotel, the rooms clean and spacious, the food (served in several restaurants) varied and delicious. That's what sets this hotel apart from others I've been to this great people of service: nice, friendly, smiling, they are not pushy. Well, the good spirit of the hotel - animation team. Superb. We not only provide great entertainment all day but you can always ask them if any doubt, ask for advice. Especially we thank Kareem, who willingly devote to us every moment , showed great patience in interesting discussions) and his positive energy encouraged us to many interesting entertainment.

My wife and myself travelled from Luxor to spend a weeks holiday at the SRM and it exceeded all our expectations, it was the most wonderful place we have ever been too. Everything about this resort is amazing, especially the helpfulness and cheeriness of the staff. The beach was always kept immaculately clean, the gardens are so beautifully designed and look gorgeous. We visited 5 of the a la carte restaurants, the food was fantastic, especially the Asian and the Dalliah although the food in the main restaurant was excellent too. We will definitely return to this hotel as it was just so relaxing and enjoyable, the staff were so helpful and cheery.

Room Tip: We stayed in Block 14 upper floor, it was close to the main amenities and Reception and was very qu...

This was the second visit and as with the first visit we had a very friendly welcome. Throughout the holiday all staff were very helpful, friendly and made our holiday so special, but an extra special mention is needed to be given to Hashem Lotfy front of house manager, Abdul Bassett in the bar, Ahmed in the Mexican Restaurant and Natalie on the animation team.
Hotel was clean and tidy, food was excellent, more choice than you could wish for in the main restaurant and the a la carte restaurants were all fantastic, especially the Asian, the Italian and the Daliah.
While we were there we had a huge storm. I can't believe how all the staff rallied together to get rid of all the water and feed us all without any electricity! By the next morning it was as if nothing had happened!
Looking forward to our visit again next year

We have just returned from our 2nd trip to the hotel. I think the hotel should be proud of the many staff who work so hard to make the customers happy, even when the weather means the power goes out because of a thunder and lightning storm the service remained amazing. The a la carte restaurants are all really good and our favourite is definately the Asian and if you get the chance book the Tepanyaki for a small surcharge (but well worth it) The animation team are fantastic especially Natalie, Coco, John, Karem Angelika and many many more. The rooms are nice with very large comfy beds the aircon works well, the showers are powerful and there was always hot water. The management are always walking round making sure that everything is the best it can be. You can walk along the footpath by the beach in the daytime which is really nice past the other Makadi hotels. The shops in the hotel are all really good fun, make sure you barter for the best price. We will definately return to this hotel it is so friendly, very large with plenty of different pools to sit around and the fact that you can use the 7 a la carte restaurants as many times as you like is a true bonus. Thank you Sunrise Royal Makadi see you all next year!!!

Room Tip: If you want a quiet room choose block 38. Blocks 14 -16 are close to the reception and main pools i...

we had a fantastic storm whilst we were there and all the staff managed to keep it all together and a special mention to the catering team who still managed to feed the nearly 2000 guest without power.

on a personal note I don't like my beer in plastic beakers but I understand for safety reasons why they use them
