... it is in the middle of the desert. The people are friendly, and have a small zoo with snakes and other small animals. Their are camels everywhere. I had a 15 minute ride on a camel. It really gives you the opportunity to see how other people around the world live. I mean, these people definitely do not have fridges, cars, built brick houses or supermarkets.
... allowed to get in without covering your head. Then we shop around in New Marina. There are more shops and better restaurants or bars than the old town. On returning to the hotel, we tried our first time taking the micro-bus. We asked a local people about how it works. It costs only 1 Egyptian pound for anywhere you go. Get on the bus and paid 1 Egyptian pound and then called to stop when you have arrived your hotel. Enjoy Hurgahda!
... as the revolution is only about their own local people. They would not hurt anyone not from their country. We also booked our snorkeling tour next day but found out later another travel agent quoted us half of the price we paid. It all depends on your bargain skills. The price could vary from just 7 Euro to 20 Euro. Anyway, always get a few more quotations before making ...
... thin shawl which is also worn in a way that will cover their face. We were shown their huts, the well where they got their water, the "kitchen" where they cooked, the Mosque for their prayers, and a hut where weaving was done. It was quite interesting. We finalized our visit with a camel ride - another first!! Getting on was not bad but getting off was a challenge --- you have to lean waaaaaaaaay back as the camel goes down on ...
134.72km, ave 32.4km/h, total ride time 4:09, total time 4:54 I started off the day with the racers and stuck with them to the lunch stop, my legs were feeling a bit tender thereafter and I took it easy form there and took a break at the coke stop. When I arrived at the finish the tour director Sharita (1 of 3 South Africans on the TDA staff) came to me with some bad ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Serenity Makadi Heights Makadi Bay
Dans l'ensemble, c'est un très bon hôtel : les chambres, le domaine, le personnel, la cuisine étaient excellents. Mais l'accès à la mer est le seul côté décevant.
A well presented hotel set in the desert with luxury gardens. The hotel is very clean and the locals are lovely, very respectful and always polite, so make sure you always say hello to all of them, from the pot boys to cleaners to the waiters, they all have time for you.
Amazing, amazing, amazing !!!
Where do I start?! What an amzingly beautiful hotel, everything so spacious and clean.
The rooms are big with sat tv, hairdryer, phone, air-con, mini fridge, safe and an iron/ironing board (requested from reception). All balconys overlooking wonderful views. All in all there are 6 pools, three with a swim up bar.
Restaurants are lovely, variety of food and waiters cannot do enough for you, look out for Tariq in the main restaurant who is a real star, make friends with him, he will look out for you during your trip. Also, Hasheam in the swim up bar, very very friendly.
I would definately go back to this hotel, I was gutted when we left! 10 out of 10. Amazing!
Well as you can see from my intro - we liked this place.
We have just returned from just one week stay in this hotel. The hotel is magnificent and we have never experienced such incredible service before. It was so lovely that it was hard to come back home! Food was fantastic, perfectly served and staff as always friendly and helpful. Four well maintained swimming pools (including one heated). Hotel was quite empty as it is just few months old, it was opened in October last year so you can imagine everything was new, clean and shiny. Not too many people - so there was plenty of space on the beach in restaurants and in a pub. Good entertainment in just one resort pub in the evening, but you need to expect a lot of Russian people but i promise they love to party as well. For families with children as far as we know there is a kids disco and kids club close to the main pool. Regarding excursions - we took only two, but we strongly recommend them. One was the Mega Safari: jeep, camel, and quad bikes all together plus lunch and dinner in Bedoiuns Camp and reptiles museum and star watching - brilliant!!!!
Firstly I have to say the pictures I found on the net before I arrived at this hotel certainly don't do it any justice, it is extremely well presented and a lot larger than it looks!
without wishing to repeat previous reviews by Carol and Jane which we found most helpful heres a bit of straight talk !
I have just returned from a weeks stay at carols on the 16th march with my mom.
Overall a very good hotel - rooms, grounds, staff and food excellent. The one disappointing aspect is the access to the sea. The beach itself is fine but swimming in the sea is a bit dangerous. For around 100 feet the sea is ankle deep and then it drops suddenly over a coral reef which has now become completely damaged due to guests having to walk over it to get into the sea. They were meant to have built a jetty so you can walk out on that straight into the sea but they still have not received planning permission to do this. So if you want to swim you will need rubber shoes and be prepared for a few scratches and bruises as you get into and out of the water. However once in there the snorkelling is very good - lots of fish (a few jellyfish too unfortunately) and beautiful coral a bit further along where it hasn't been damaged. Not a good place to stay if you want to be able to relax swimming in the sea.
