The Makadi Palace is a salubrious resort situated on Makadi Bay in Egypt’s fabulous Red Sea area. Featuring a private beach and just 30 minutes in a free shuttle bus from the Grand Mall in Hurghada, it’s the perfect place to while away a few idyllic days with the family.
There are 475 rooms on 5 floors in the Makadi Palace and each room has a balcony from where guests can enjoy stunning views of the resort’s gardens, swimming pools or the Red Sea. It’s easy to see why the resort is often compared to a Moorish Palace. Air conditioning, satellite television, minibar and safety deposit box are all included in standard rooms.
There’s so much to do at the Makadi Palace it’s no surprise that some people barely leave the resort for the duration of their break. With 4 large swimming pools, 5 tennis courts and a football pitch, the opportunities for engaging in sport are immense here. Other activities offered include beach volleyball, water polo, aerobics and aqua-aerobics.
Apart from the feel good factor you get from all of the exercise, it’s a great way to meet and make friends with some of the other guests in the resort. And with a unique daily sports program, featuring lots of fun games and competitions, there’s really no excuse not to get involved.
However, if sport is too much like hard work to you, other ways you can spend your time at the Makadi Palace include getting a massage from one of the fully qualified masseuses working full time at the resort or enrolling in a free Arabic language course. The only stipulation for the language course is there must be enough demand from guests to run it.
Dining in the Makadi Palace is one of the highlights of a stay here. Guests have a wide range of options available for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The Dome and Melange restaurants offer breakfast including American, English and continental style selections and both also offer full lunch buffets. Another option for lunch includes the Sunset Grill which has a mouth-watering menu of grilled dishes.
For the main evening meal buffets are available from the Dome, Melange and Discovery restaurants. Aficionados of Thai food though will probably spend most of their time in the Thai Garden which serves delicious, authentic Thai dishes for lunch and dinner. And if you’re worried about what the kids will eat there’s no need to be, a children’s buffet is available daily from 10am to 5pm and includes all the snacks that kids love.
After the sun sets, the atmosphere at the Makadi Palace becomes more tranquil as guests enjoy a few drinks in the Piano Bar. Every night a different act performs live music and if you still feel like dancing after this, you can get your groove on in the resort’s nightclub, which is open until the early hours every night of the week.
The Makadi Palace also offers an extensive entertainment package for kids. There are various kids’ clubs run by the hotel, including one at Sunwing Waterworld. And if the little ones need to practice their swimming for this they have their own designated swimming pool at the Makadi Palace. Selections of children’s movies are also shown throughout the day and an evening disco completes the entertainment package.
