Prima Life Makadi
Ranked #19 of 30 Hotels in Makadi Bay
Reviewed 17 February 2012

This resort has a fantastic beach, swimming pools, landscape, friendly staff, all day food and drink. The rooms are spacy, well furnished and very clean, the buffet has a very good blend of food, there is a fantastic animation team that make you enjoy each moment if you like to share. The barmen are very good in making cocktails and you can have a nice snak at the beach. There is a night club with a DJ that knows how to choose the right music. In a nut shell its an all inclusive resort that you dont have to search for anything to find outside it?

After the mixed reviews and ok photos, we weren't expecting very much so we were pleasantly surprised. So it's not really 5* but you don't pay 5* prices either and for what you pay for I'll say price-quality wise I'll give it a 10! Food was delicious (and I come from a good food culture so I know what I'm talking about) and the rotating dinner themes (with different table cloth/settings and waiter's uniforms to match) meant you weren't bored. They do have 2 ala carte restaurants (as part of all-inclusive) but those had very limited choices that no one ate there in the week we were there. We had our baby with us so buffet-style was perfect. For those with babies, there is a microwave in the dinning hall so bring your baby food. Note that they are very prompt with their mealtime timings.
Rooms were big and some had sea views. We were given a standard pool view room and then we paid for an upgrade to a family suite which was well worth it! The family suite (Rm 9109) had the best views in the entire resort and sun throughout the day on the balcony.
Even though we saw people constantly upkeeping the grounds and rooms, we could see that the general construction and materials used were not 5* quality.
Tho' there was supposed to be one warmed pool, it was still too cold. NO ONE went into the pool all week. Beach was relatively small compared to the resorts to its left and right but it was still probably 100meters long, so it was enough. The reef right in front of hotel isn't great so go to the one next door. That was very good!
All in we had a fantastic holiday. It wasn't super lux 5* but for what we got, it was worth every cent and more!

Room Tip: Rooms at end of the hotel towards the beach are better. Rooms right at the end of the block are the...

Everything is all in, unless it tastes good, then it's EXTRA pay. Actually turned out that the most delicious drinks were to pay extra. Our room first 2 days no hot water. Will be fixed in 10 minutus. 10 minutes rule applies to everything what is going wrong or will be fixed.
Buffets are generally OK, except when you find in the pancakes at breakfast a piece of iron and iron filings. Things get worse when you hurt your mouth the next day. We found pieces of sharp glass in the jam. By verification of the jams there were still pieces of glass, but as the Chef said it was apparently not his responsibility, and was astonished we wanted to warn the other tourists. Food & Beverage Manager present, also the general manager present. Are "bought off" with a dinner in their exclusive a la carte restaurant (usually extra pay). Seems that al who were dining there where birded as hush hush money.

Room Tip: Go to the hotel next door. Makadi Palace of the Red sea hotels.
