"All Inclusive + Water Park == Perfect for Families"
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!

"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!

"Fabulous hotel especially the staff"
We have been to that lovely hotel for short vacation and we were very happy, the staff are highly social with lovely smile and high sense of humor. They are really great. The cleanliness of the hotel as whole (pool, rooms,restaurants,bars,....) Is excellent , they pay attention for tiny details. Food is good with wide variety and good taste and my mum had some special needs as she is vegetarian, her needs was faced by acceptance and wide smile and all her dreams came true. The snacks between meals can stand alone as a meal not only a snack. The kids were really happy by the animation team and the kids club . The entertainment as a whole was fabulous. We didn't feel the time passing. I will definitely revisit this hotel and i will definitely recommend it to others At last thx for all the staff especially Mr. Ali (asst. manager food and beverage) without all of you ,the place will be as any other place. Really thx.
"Staying with a toddler. In winter. Horse riding tip!"
02/02/15 Dafne07 Vienna, Austria
We just returned from our 10 day holidays in this resort. It was our first time in Egypt and first time in all inclusive resort. We are very spoiled travelers that are very particular about food so we spend lot of time searching for the right place to stay. And I must say we weren't disappointed. It was great value for money. Here is a short summary of our comments: Room> we booked the family room. We stayed in block 9 which is next to the pool and our room was overviewing the pool. The family room has massive double bed (two beds pushed together) and kind of separate sofa room between bedroom and terrace that can be separated by a curtain so that's where our 2yo slept. it just gave us enough privacy. The bathroom is nice with huge shower. No bathtubs.The rooms are super clean. Overall, the cleanlines of this resort is seriously impressive. TV has 3 English movie channels and some german and russian channels. The beds are comfy. You can ask for a cot for your baby but it is really prehistoric bed that is rather small and has few dangerous elements. At the end we used it but tried to wrapped all the sharp corners and rough wood with towels. However, every time our daughter turned she was banging on the sides and it kept us awake. Sleep quality> this is a tricky part. If you are a light sleeper, don't expect to sleep well. The music from evening entertainment can last till midnight and carries across the resort, if people are coming late into their rooms the banging of the door is really loud. And at 6am sharp is the staff starting the new date / so the cleaners start draging their trolleys, around the pool rearenging the deck hairs etc. WIFI> access is for free but the amount of data is limited. It was just enough for us to read emails and post few pictures. The connection in the rooms is rather bad, so the best option is to go to the lobby area. CLEANLENES> amazing. You see people cleaning the place 24/7. Our daughter decided to crawl and slide on their marble floor in her white dress and it wasn't dirty!! If you want to take your still crawling toddler into a resort in Egypt, this would be the place. POOL> nice pool. The larger part was ice cold but the smaller part is heated and it was on some of the hot days as coffee. Very nice and must to have in winter! BEACH> great. 5 mins away from the pool. Very clean and the reef is just few meters away and full of fish. There is also a pier nearby where you can walk and watch the fish from there. We even saw octopus and squids from the pier!. Our daughter loved it and it became routine going there for a walk before the sun set. ANIMATION> fantastic! We were worried we will be bored. I didn't even open one of my three books! The day is filled with different activities that usually take about half an hour. You can choose between the fun stuff (like darts or bocchi) or sport (aerobics, stretching, belly dancing etc). most activities take about 30 mins. Don't worry about bringing trainers and fitness clothes - all sport is done in swimsuit barefoot on very soft grass. Oh, forget the fitness center. It is a sad place with 2 cardio machines and few weight lifting options. KIDS ANIMATION> this is a weak point. There is some, but not overly inspiring and aimed for the older kids. The kids club is a sad place. I expected room full of toys that could be used in cold weather or just to fill in some time.... no, this doesn't exist. Which is very surprising considering at least half of the guests were with kids. But, every evening at 8pm was a kids disco for half an hour which was great fun and hour daughter loved it! FOOD> now, this is where we have the weak link. But, as mentioned at the beginning, we are very particular about our food. The buffet is really big with lot of choices. So if you are after quantity rather than quality you will love it. Breakfast is the same every day. So after few days we lost inspiration. Lunches and dinners have some different elements. The best option was always the freshly made stuff on one of the grills or the freshly made pasta. There were good days where we loved the food and bad days where all we chose tasted the same. The BBQ guy at the dinners should be changed because 90% of the meat and fish came out bone dry. STAFF> very friendly and great with kids. After few days they remember the kids names. There was couple of grumpy waiters that lost interest when we didn't give them tip on the first or second day but most of them are great. Tip helps though :-) Overall great holiday and we wouldn't mind coming back if the opportunity presents itself. TIP> near the resort are stables. It is actually more like a small farm with different animals including camels, monkeys, cats, dogs, geese etc. You can book ride with the camel guy that is every day on the beach. 2hrs ride cost 35 EUR and it includes pick up and guide. The horses are great, well kept and the guide Omar is amazing. We had fantastic time, galloping on the beach and through the dessert.

I booked a room with a sea view no.107 was in the first floor . The room and bathroom was super clean and very relaxing. The hotel was very nice the employees helpful and the animation team very kind . About the food they have a big variety but most of the food is tasteless they need to upgrade the quality of food and to hire a professional chef with more experience in International guests and healthy cooking. I spent 4 days at the hotel and i went around the other hotels in the area and for me the " jaz makadina" is the best designed . I recommend if you go to makadi bay choose first the jaz makadina hotel second option the sensymar hotel . If i ever go back to this area for sure i will go to the same hotel but in different month cause in January the sea is a cold for me.

Stayed on this hotel with my boyfriend in January. Overall a great hotel, which surprised us in a very positive way. First of all, our room was very big and clean. The whole hotel looked amazing, and was also very clean and with a big park in the middle. It was just a few steps from the ocean, and had an amazing beach with god sun chairs. The pool was very cold, so we did not use it. The staff was very friendly and we loved Hani, our housekeeper. The food on Jaz Makadina, was also amazing - i have stayed All Inc, in Egypt before, and the food has not been that great. There was cooking stations where you could choose what you wanted in your pasta, omelet etc. The salad was good, the bread fresh and a lot to choose from. We also loved the cakes, they were so good. If you want to go snorkelling, Makadi Bay is okay, but it is nothing like the reefs you can find i Sharm el Sheikh. My advise is to snorkel in the ocean, on the left side of the bridge by the sea. There are a lot of good spots with some beautiful coral reef, we even saw a ray one day. Overall this hotel is a very great place to stay. It is not an european 5-star, but it is the best hotel i have ever stayed on in Egypt and i would recommend it. I do not think i will return to Hurghada if i go to Egypt again, because i like Sharm el Sheikh better - i just wished that this hotel was located there instead of in Makadi Bay.

"Disastrous vacation!!!! Horrible!!!"
01/17/15 Emanuela L Geneva, Switzerland
This hotel does not deserve the fabulous note on booking and any other website. I cant believe that I picked this hotel for the good review they had. I learned to never trust this ratings. The sea view room I have booked was a room with the pool view and a line of sea faraway. They only have 8 rooms sea view yet they were fully booked. The room card wasn’t working, the toilets not functioning, the shower wouldn't run. All this every day which made the vacation a nightmare. The staff was hypocrite, smiling all the time and saying they will fix things, which they didn't. The food was every day the same, no variety… Thanks God that the animation team was sweet and always ready to make us forget the troubles with the hotel management.
