We enjoyed our stay in Sol y Mar Clb Makadi very much from the first moment. The hotel, food, animation, beach and pool facilities were all better than expected, the service was attentive and excellent, and there is nothing we can complain about. The resort caters mainly to families with children.

This is a great place to stay if you have kids!! The convenience of the All Inclusive makes you feel very secured that your kids can practically eat or drink whenever they are hungry so no stress with your kids' diet! Even though the food variety is not fantastic (not quite 5 star) yet there is plenty of food and you can overall have a decent (not fantastic) meal. The fact that Makadi has a water park and it is included in your stay is super convenient and the kids just love it (actually not just the kids ;-)). You can have lots of fun with your kids at the water park, in the heated pool or over at the beach! At night you can enjoy the animation team performances and entertainment whether at the hotel or a 5min walk to the Teatro (theater). One last thing, because the water park is within Makadi city it is also part of the all inclusive deal so staying there you can have some snacks and soft drinks all day long!

Замечательный отель в районе Макади Бэй. По приезду в отель сразу обратил внимание на эффект де жавю - знакомый бассейн , ресепшен, территория и пляж. После вопроса продавцу в местном магазинчике: не в Макади Клуб я сейчас случайно нахожусь, он улыбнулся и ответил: да, два года назад это был Макади Клуб, в котором я, как оказалось, был двенадцать лет назад при моем первом посещении Египта. А это был мой второй визит в эту страну , в этот отель, но уже с другим названием :-). Но, не смотря на огромное количество отелей в Египте, я не пожалел , что оказался в том же отеле, но с другим названием - Jaz Makadina. Отель преобразился, стал зеленее, чище, номера свежие, хорошо убираются. Встреча на ресепшене и размещение прошла быстро и с хорошим внимание к нам и нашим пожеланиям. Кухня в основном ресторане очень вкусная и разнообразная, к качеству блюд нет никаких претензий. Команда аниматоров работала очень хорошо: пытались поднять для игр и развлечений даже самых ленивых отдыхающих. Нам все понравилось- отель преобразился, стал лучше, персонал- молодцы! В следующий раз не будем заниматься поисками, а поедем сюда.

"Great value!"
05/11/15 galadrielle09 Skopje, Republic of Macedonia
We chose this hotel for our honeymoon due its high ratings and very positive reviews. I am very happy to say that we weren't disappointed. I especially recommend this hotel for a romantic trip because it is a very calm hotel and it gives a sense of intimacy and privacy. The staff in the hotel is very nice and polite. They treat every guest as a VIP and try to accommodate all the clients’ demands. Whenever we needed something, they tried to provide it. They even arranged dinner in our room because we arrived after midnight. The hotel itself is great. There is everything one could need: enough bars for drinks and other activities, great pools and a wonderful beach. There are several bars to go to, so it never is boring and there are plenty of activities to do. Personally, my favorite was the small theater (shared from the other hotel) where there are regular shows. I wasn't impressed by the animation team- though it is a matter of personal opinion and they did try to organize a lot of things. The rooms are new and very well maintained. The cleanness is on a very high level and they and a special touch by making great figures from the towels. One should just be aware that the whole hotel is an entity of many smaller buildings, so most of the rooms are on the ground or first floor-therefore the see view is debatable. The food in the main restaurant is also excellent. It excels in quality and variety. There is food and drinks available no matter at what time of the day it is. And not only in the main restaurant, but also in the additional bars there are many options for snacks. We were there in winter, and we caught two holidays there: Christmas Eve and New Year’s. The staff and every one of the hotel really tried hard to make them special and to bring holiday spirit in the resort. So overall, we are very happy from the stay in this hotel. There was one negative point at the end of our stay: when we paid they overcharged us, probably due to a bad calculation of the dollar-euro rate. It wasn't for much, so we didn't want to make a big deal out of it, especially since the service is great, however be aware that it is possible to happen.

"The most honest review you'll ever read"
05/03/15 Mostafa O
I'm not sure where to start from, but first i need to mention that i have chosen this hotel based on the good reviews i have read here. Well, most of it are true. However, there're some disappointing points that have to be mentioned. Reception: Although i have sent an email to the hotel management to state how important this visit is to me, as it is my 2nd anniversary and a celebration of my newly born son, i was amazed of how rude the receptionist was during my check-in. Actually, i was about to change my plans and transfer my stay to another hotel the moment i dealt with that arrogant receptionist. Room/services: Despite that fact that it was beside the staff building, the room itself was nice and comfy. It was a pool view in the 2nd floor. Room services was perfect and room is cleaned in a daily basis. Be aware, whenever you ask for a bottle of water, it comes warm not cold, ask them to change it, they will, after some hassle. Restaurants: Worst to best .. El Obba: The worst services i have ever experienced in my entire life. It doesn't matter which bartender serves you, they all are in the same level of Rudeness. Every time i ask for a bottle of water, the water is always warm, as cold water is only served for foreigners or by tips to the bartender. Once, i asked for a bottle of water, and as always it came warm claiming that he doesn't have any cold bottles, when i insisted to have another cold one and threaten to meet the manager, Wooops the cold water appears with a fake smile. There are many other incidents, but enough said, this is the worst restaurant ever. El Masryeen: A good restaurant, not a fabulous one. It can secure your basic needs, no more, no less. What is really really perfect about this restaurant, is Chef Muhammad who was responsible of grilled food located in a separate corner inside the restaurant, like Shawerma, Iskandarani Lever and so, he really is a talented Chef. Actually, every night we had our dinner from his corner as there was not much to eat in other departments. El Sakkala: Again, Chef Muhammad is the key. He was responsible of making Pizza, Fried potatoes and Donuts. Try his food, you won't regret that. Other than that, not recommended. Aqua: Only drinks, so not much to say about it. Beach: A very nice beach. Services are great too, thanks to Sayed who took good care of us during our stay. Animation team: Well, do you even have an animation team? All what i'm sure of is that there are some people dressed the same yellow t-shirts walking around the hotel and get paid by end of month. Other than that, i'm sorry to tell you that you might have a team, but it is not about animation services !!! Mr. Wessam, i know you're reading this and i hope that my comments that i have left in the room have found its way to you. It is not professional to depend on some certain persons in your hotel to secure the guests' requirements, it has to be the whole team. For example, i used to have snacks of pizza and donuts that is made by Chef Muhammad at El Sakkala daily, when Muhammad went on vacation and replaced by someone else, the snacks became awful, the service is bad and the attitude of the other chef is rude and lack the hospitality. That's only one example, i can give you more if you're interested. Bottom line, those good persons, Muhammad the Chef, Sayed from beach services and Muhamamd from room services, who made my stay more acceptable might leave anytime, you need to focus more on the team in each restaurant and follow up closely.

"Fantastic 10 days"
04/30/15 Heathereallen Sheffield, United Kingdom
Hotel and its staff were absolutely lovely, and all members of staff tried very hard to make me and my husband very welcome. I have food allergies and would like to give a big thanks to head chef Mohammed, and to his staff in the main restaurant, and especially Mohamed the pizza chef and the crepe chef who all went out of their way to accommodate my allergies. The Aqua bar staff were warm and friendly and also accommodate my allergies. A big thanks to the amintation team for their warm, friendly manner they had. Really enjoyed the fitness sessions in the morning by the beach. From the reception staff, bar staff, beach staff and the cleaners the welcome they gave me and my husband was fanstatic, so much so that we are hoping to go back in September. I've not written a review before but felt I had too. Although the other hotel guests were German and Russian this didn't bother us. To make the hotel better, my only wish is that the gym could be updated, with more updated equipment, doesn't match the rest of the beautiful hotel and more free wifi dated allowance

Very good hotel, special families with kids. Good location, great landscape full of colorful and nice smelling flowers. Spacious rooms with two sofa-beds, well trained staffs and helpful. Good variety of foods and tasty. Swimming pool well maintained and clean. Beach is a bit small but sufficient space for sea lovers. Red Sea water is amazing. One of best hotels in Hurghada.

"Really good value for money if you choose the “All inclusive” accommodation but it could turn out to be an expensive hol"
04/08/15 Norman C Wuppertal, Germany
We have stayed at several resorts on the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aqaba over the last 5 years, but the JAZ Makadina located on Makadi Bay south of Hurghada probably offers the best value for money now-a-days. The complex had been taken over by Iberotels a couple of years ago and at least the JAZ has been well modernized. The rooms are situated in one of ten separate 3 storied houses grouped around the garden or the pool (Fig 1), the rooms being large, quiet and comfortable with a small attached lounge area with coffee table between the bedroom part and the balcony, (Fig 2). Note that very few rooms even on the ground floor have direct access to the lawn area from their balcony. The bathrooms were recently modernized and the traditional bath replaced by a large shower area with a modern hand shower, (but no overhead shower). The exhaust van is coupled to the light which sometimes is a bit disturbing, as can be the evening dance band and singers, (so if you want a quiet evening then ask for a room in Houses 5 to 8). The room boys are very well trained and not only kept all the three rooms we had well cleaned but almost every day came up with a new creation on the bed, (see Fig 3 and 4). Breakfast, lunch and dinner are all taken in the main restaurant, buffet style and at all three meals there is a large selection of starters and salads, (Fig 5) various main dishes in warming pans or freshly carved meat (the lamb was excellent) or fish, (the baked fish too). For those who love desserts the selection is almost overwhelming, (Fig 6 and 7). One can sit inside, but the outside dinning area near the pool, protected at breakfast and lunch by large sunshades on wheeled bases (Fig 8), which can be easily moved to take account of the position of the sun, is much more enjoyable for those who have fled the snows of Western Europe; in the evening the sunshades are folded away, (Fig 9). One can also “eat around” there being a number of individual restaurants in the centre of the complex. One pays € 12,-- per person for this privilege, but gets a good choice of individually cooked dishes for this price, (the “Grill” restaurant - just across the road from the rear exit from the hotel complex - has two very good steak dishes, either sirloin or filet, and the meat quality is so good that one can order “Medium-rare” with no qualms – we went there twice. On A.I. in the hotel complex all drinks are served by the glass, the local white wine, (acceptable), rosé (a little tasteless) and red wine (so-so) or local beer, (a light pils type and quite tasty and better than the beer in the minibar) being the general drinks with lunch and dinner, or one can also take a variety of soft drinks by the glass. Wine by the bottle is extra (some imported) and for the quality is expensive (approx € 30 per bottle). Local spirits – gin, brandy, or rum etc. – are included in the A.I. tariff and thus can also be order by the glass – the G & T is made with local “S…’s Indian Tonic Water” and is quite acceptable. However unlike other holiday areas on the Red Sea one cannot buy any alcohol in the supermarket outside the hotel grounds nor any other drinks which are not offered by the hotel – we missed sparkling water – and one feels this is more a policy decision by Iberotels to maintain their monopoly of drinks in the hotels and not just out of respect for the local muslim population, (who have no access to the complex anyway). The hotel is directly on the beach so not only can you find a place under a permanent palm-leafed shade but most such sunshades (Fig 10) also have a wattle wind break, very useful when the cool north west winds blow between November and March. Access to the water is directly from the somewhat coarse sandy beach, but for those who go snorkeling or diving the is a 100 yd jetty out into Makardi Bay so access to the three coral reefs close to the coast is very easy. At this time of the year the water is still a little cool (21°C) for long snorkeling, but one can rent a wet suit at € 6,-- a day at the diving centre, and if you are a keen snorkeler and want to go in every day it worth spending this extra to stay in the water for an hour or more. Unlike a Swiss hotel we stayed at near El Quseir it was not forbidden to go snorkeling or swimming even when the red flag was flying – you just did it at your own risk instead of having to sit for 7 days out of 8 behind your wind break! In the evening after dinner there is often entertainment, a band or singers being located close to the bar area but the noise does not penetrate as far as the rear houses (6, to 8) however we did find the daytime animation on the lawns close to the beach a little disturbing – why is it that the animation staff need to turn up the load speakers to semi-full volume? Such entertainment seems to be highly appreciated by the Russian guests - about 60% when we were there mostly with young children between 2 and 10 – the other guests being mainly German couples without children – it was not the time of the school holidays in Germany. As a West European guest one needs a little time to get used to the different levels of politeness of the Eastern Europeans guests. Are there things which need to be improved? Yes. but perhaps because they are or could be dangerous. In the middle of the walkway between the sun-beds and the rim of the pool is a large rock, no doubt placed there for decoration, (See Fig 11). In the daytime one can easily see this (and avoid it), but at night it is not illuminated and so my handicapped brother tripped over it in the dark, broke his walking stick – which was repaired by the hotel- and severely bruised his ribs – which needed medical attention. A latent danger, so take care. Similarly in the bathroom the rubber door stopper is absolutely in the middle and 15 cm from the shower step. One must always make a conscious effort to step over this otherwise one will easy stub ones toe – do small children, of which there were very many, realize this, or do they hurt themselves? (The door stopper needs to be moved very close to the shower step and shifted to one side. Are there items other items which could be improve? Very few. The rooms are of good size, are very well cleaned and maintained, the buffets have an excellent selection and on A.I. one can eat or drink when ever one wants. Would we go back again? Yes, the whole resort is kept very clean and is good value for money. Would we recommend the hotel? Also Yes – the staff were helpful and only once did we have to complain after one of the evening staff insisted on switching off the outside flood light at 9.15 pm although we were still sitting outside with our brandies.

"OK, but English a bit of a struggle"
04/05/15 HelzBelz Norwich UK
Echoing some of the other comments, the hotel was lovely, spacious clean rooms, nice pool area (heated pool was a bonus) and friendly staff. However we were the only English family for most of the holiday, which was fine, but sometimes challenging. Also some of the reception staff clealy had no idea what we were saying half the time. Mishaps including having to hunt down our cases after they had supposedly collected them (they had left them outside but couldn't explain that) and them sending us to the water park without entry tickets. Food nice, waiting staff and chefs really helpful. Water park fantastic, beach lovely, reef has plenty of fish.

this was my second time to stay at makadina and again everything was great :) the water heater was not working and in ten minutes it was replaced with a new one ... they really care to make you happy . again special thanks to petra a great person and the amazing joker :) who is really a joker doing everything and being everywhere my only concern this time was about the activities and the Olympic day which was not organized well and the spirit was not like before . frankly speaking some people at the animation team are not doing a great job like others and this is very obvious regarding the volleyball time .. jaz makadina staff i know you r reading my review and i would like to thank you again and wish to see u again soon :)

"Great place for all types of visits"
03/13/15 Dina E
The hotel is a part of Makadi city "Madinat Makadi " in which you find a number of marvelous hotels, with many facilities and services. It's a very nice hotel that suits all types of trips. A relaxing place for couples, yet, families with kids will definitely enjoy the activities available in the hotel. Me and my husband went for three days, inclusive reservation in a room with a sea view, and here's the feed back for every thing: Hospitality: excellent, we were given some offers and gifts through the stay. Room: excellent, room is very clean, and full of all needs. Only comment is that tv channels are limited, but this was not an issue for us. Service: excellent, staff is very helpful, welcoming, and friendly. Activities: excellent. A diving center is available at the hotel for all sea activities, like diving, snorkeling, parasailing, donuts riding...etc. That's in addition to the morning aerobic and sport activities at the pool and at the beach, as well as horse and camel riding. Restaurants: the main restaurant "El Masry" is very good and variable in all buffet to cover all tastes. Unfortunately, we didn't try any other restaurants to judge, but they all look nice. Only note that they need 24 hours early reservation. Facilities: there's a Spa, tiatro, theatre, Laloca disco, shisha cafe, in addition to the city market "Makadi souq" Most positive note to be taken that when we made the reservation online, something was wrong with the visa. Yet,they didn't cancel the booking and they called us to confirm the reservation, just through the word of mouth. Long story short, it was a pleasant experience!
