Just returned from a fantastic two week holiday at Sunrise Royal Makadi. What a holiday, if you are looking for sunshine, good food, relaxation, fun and more then you will not be disappointed.
We arrived in half term which was busy but never caused us a problem, only downside was having to get up early to reserve a sunbed as it did get busy, but second week was really quiet. We spent most of our time around family pool 2 which is the quieter pool, suited us great. Our two children (6 & 4) loved spending their days swimming making friends and loved playing with MoMo (animation team member will come back to him later). We ate every morning in the Mexican which was much quieter then main restaurant, fresh food every day, great pancakes, eggs, pastries etc. We preferred the a la carte restaurants to the main one but it was fine for a few nights and worked well if you wanted a quick bite to eat rather then a sit down relaxing meal. Our favourite restaurants were the Asian, Italian & T-bones but all were good. Only complaint would be that it was very difficult to get into these restaurants and every time we went there were many empty tables, I think management should try monitor the bookings more.
We had a family room with two bedrooms in block 36 great room, cleaned well every day and lovely towel art left.
Went snorkelling a few times off next doors beach which was fantastic.
Thomas Cook kids club was great Ryan & Rhianna were amazing with our two and they asked several times to go. They run three sessions a day each for two hours, was great to get the children out of the sun for a couple of hours.
We had all our laundry done day before we came home fantastic service def recommend.
Now onto the animation team they were Fantastic and a complete credit to the hotel. I would go as far to say they make this hotel what it is and the place would not be the same without their hard work and dedication. Nothing is to much trouble for them and they do everything they can to make your holiday what you want it to be. You can relax or join in activities but never felt pressured into joining in. Evening entertainment was better when the animation team did it, the outside acts were good but it was nice to see the team do there thing. One comment would be that it was very hard to understand the entertainment manager when he was announcing what was happening, I am aware he had to do these in several languages but a bit slower would have been good.
I have to make a very special mention about MoMo what a complete star, we all loved him and he is a fantastic asset to the team. Made my children feel very special so thank you to him. Also want to thank Natalie for all her help, Advice & chats.
If you get a chance to go here you will not be disappointed.
