Sunrise Royal Makadi Bay Resort....Excellent
And excellent holiday. The resort was clean and tiday and well maintained.
7 A La Carte restaurants were exceptional all offering something different.
The rooms were cleaned every day and on the one day we did not want ours cleaned or made up we got a phone call to check it was not a mistake.
The pools were vast and it did not seem like there were another 2000 guests and there was always a sunbed at the pool or the beach.
Staff were very pleasant and attentive and more than happy to help. With questions of any queries you may have, not that we had any.
Can't wait to return only for longer next time :-)

Fantastic Hotel, with briliant Animation team
This hotel is a real 5 start in Makadi Bay. The facilities are clean and plentiful. The rooms are based in blocks situated around the main building. Everything is within easy reach. The restaurants are very good, standards are high and food good. The staff were brilliant, helpful and friendly, especially the Animation Team who went out of their way to ensure that everyone was enjoying their holiday, and putting on great shows in the evenings and events during the day.
The beach is very nice and sandy, and snorkelling good.
Would love to return to this hotel.

Relaxing and Good Value
We enjoyed a relaxing week prior to Christmas. The hotel was everything we expected it to be having stayed in Sunrise hotels in Egypt a number of times before.
Excellent beach and pools, great service and high standards of cleanliness

Sunrise Royal Makadi Resort is Superb, outstanding & wonderful!!!
Firstly this is an amazing hotel & all the staff go out of their way to help.
So I give praise to the entire hotel from the management team down to the fantastic room cleaning guys.
The food was superb & with an amazing variety for even the fussiest eater.
The bar staff where superb they remember your drink & always have a smile.
Then we have the absolutely amazing animation team who are undoubtably the STARS of the hotel, a wonderful group of extremely talented young guys & girls who between them speak all the languages known to man!!! They entertained us all day with shuffleboard, archery, aquarobics, Zumba and many many more activities & at night with spectacular dance shows which are superb & of course the funniest multi national karaoke a definate must see!! I can't wait to go back again & really can't praise this hotel high enough, well done & thank you all xx

We had a great time, relaxing and generally chilling out. There was plenty of choices when it came to meal times, I'm sure no-one would be disappointed. The À la carte restaurants were generally OK, our favourite was Asian, however we were a bit surprised that T-Bones didn't have t-bone steaks on the menu! The Mexican restaurant was ideal for breakfast as it was just near our room (in Block 33), shame it closed after only 3 breakfasts, understandable though as there were too few people using it. The lobby bar staff were very efficient and friendly and you never had to wait too long for your first drink, or a top up. The Animation team, Natalie, 'Bob' Marley, 'Bingo' John, Karem, et al were great and always kept us informed about what was going on and inviting us to join in. Archery was great, Marley is too good though!! Our room attendant Mustafa (apologies if the spelling is wrong) deserves a special mention, he was so friendly, kept our room tidy each day, and his towel art was fantastic, we were surprised each day we returned to our room. Snorkelling off the beach was incredible, a coral reef is not too far out and the fish to be seen were amazing, just like swimming in a tropical aquarium. All in all a great trip and highly recommended.

Holiday in general was good, drinks were dia
Sunrise royal, food in the some of the restaurants was average quality but ok, some very poor (mederteranian is a no no). The drinks were poor for all inclusive, we had to buy vodka because the one they offer is like poison and that's putting it mildly, if you drink beer then you will be ok.
Entertainment staff are excellent but that doesn't make your holiday good value for money.
I know we were in Egypt but the Egyptians were holidaying at this hotel and are rude, dirty and have no concept of others being around and the staff allow this to go on, eating in pools and pushing in front of the English.
The catermeran trip is a must.
Although the hotel is defiantly not a five star, I'd put it a three at most, my children met friends and had a great holiday as did we, I just felt let down by the below average cleanliness and the lack of alcoholic drinks available. How can you make a piña colada if you don't do Malibu!!!!!!!
If your after a holiday here I would recommend it for the sun not for the great food or drinks. Had the pools been clean the actual hotel would have been ok, it needs a really good scrubbing everywhere.
Thomas cook need to review what they think is five star!!!!!

great staff, shame about food
just got back from 2 week stay, dissappointed with thomas cook who claim this to be 5 star it is not, i've stayed in better 3 star for food and rooms, kids club was a pack of felt tips, even though the dutch,german and russian kids clubs were out and about everyday, poor thomas cook kids were stuck in doors!!!
all 3 of us have diarrohea and sickness, and i met several other families who were the same.
hurghada airport is a nightmare! and i do mean a actual nightmare, the cuban airport run by military with ak's was less scary!
oh and make sure you take lots of pound coins or your bags wont be going on or coming off your transfer coach!
