... br> I’m slowly starting to make friends, friends that don’t replace the ones back home, but their good people and I’ve been lucky enough to see Egypt through their eyes. There is one guy in particular that has been nothing but amazing to me. He’s taken me under his wing and become a better friend to me than people I have known for ...
... food, drinks or snacks. I highly recommend doing a half-day tour into the desert. A white jeep picked me up, like on a safari, and we drove 30 minutes out of town to a secluded area. I was lucky to have just the guide, a german and myself on the tour. We had a 5 minute tutorial on how to ride quad bikes, then we were off. I was well prepared, and bought jeans, ...
... it is so crowded with tourists and so walked further away from the crowd. It is so much better on the further end of the beach. After 1 hour and 30 minutes of free time on the beach, we returned to our boat for lunch. In the afternoon, we have snorkeling at another two sites. Comparing to the island we just went in Sabah, the red sea water is not as clear as there. Our tour finished at about 3p.m. Overall, we enjoy our day and the trip is a ...
... stage. The scenery today was different to the other days as we made our way over the mountains and very different to anything I have seen before, a great day in the end to add to the memory bank. Shona is still off the bike and probably for a few more days, I really feel for her, it is difficult to sit on the sidelines, but we all know her determination and she will be ...
... opportunity with the Collossi of Memnon, two gigantic statues that were moved to save them from the flooding when the Aswan Dam was built. They looked kind of lonely out in a field by themselves, but they are HUGE – to give you an idea of the scale, the fence in the background of the picture is about fifteen feet tall. I have another picture with a guy walking in front of it and the wall is about two and a half times as tall as he is. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Iberotel Makadi Oasis & Family Resort Makadi Bay
Réservez dans cet hôtel dès maintenant !! Il est fantastique.
Nous venons de rentrer d'un séjour d'une semaine dans cet hôtel et nous ne lui avons trouvé aucun défaut. Tout était fantastique.
Le service était excellent, le personnel incroyablement gentil mais sans exagération (ils adorent les Anglais car il n'y en a pas beaucoup dans l'hôtel). La cuisine était fantastique, différente chaque jour, offrant des plats de tous les pays du monde.
Nous avons fait une excursion d'une journée à Louxor, qui est vivement recommandée. Le guide était merveilleux, très instructif et il parlait un anglais excellent (merci Sammy !). Il faisait incroyablement chaud mais ça vaut la peine car l'on découvre plusieurs aspects de la vie en Egypte et de son histoire.
Il y a des animations chaque jour à l'hôtel mais ce n'est pas exagéré, juste ce qu'il faut pour des vacances relaxantes. Aucune obligation de participer si on ne le souhaite pas.
Vous ne serez pas déçu si vous réservez dans cet hôtel. Il vaut bien une visite.
Pas un nuage dans le ciel
Cet hôtel était aussi bon que tous les 5 étoiles où je suis allé dans les Caraïbes. La seule différence était qu'il était plus grand, et qu'il avait donc plus de clients, et que la nourriture et les boissons étaient plutôt en self service et non servis par le personnel du restaurant. Mais à part ça, les lieux, le confort et le service étaient aussi bons.
Le temps était superbe. Je n'ai pas vu un nuage de toute la semaine.
Vous devez visiter Mahmya Island pour y faire de la plongée avec tuba.
Book this hotel now!! - It's Fantastic
We have just come back from a week's stay at this hotel and we can't fault it - everything was fantastic.
The service was excellent, staff incredibly friendly but not over the top (they love the English as there isn't many at the hotel). Food was fantastic different every day and dishes from countries all over the world.
We went on the day trip to Luxor which is well recommended - Tour guide was brilliant really informative and spoke excellent English. (Thanks Sammy!) It was incredibly hot but worth it as you get to see many aspects of Egyptian life and history.
There is daily entertainment in the hotel, but its not over the top, just right for a relaxing holiday and no pressure to join in if you don't want to.
You won't be disappointed if you book this hotel, its well worth a visit.
Großartiges Hotel, wirklich all-inklusive
Dies ist ein ausgezeichnetes Hotel. Die Zimmer sind bequem und die Anlage ist super ausgelegt und die Landschaftsgestaltung machte es zu einem angehmen Aufenthaltsort. Das Essen ist sehr gut mit großer Auswahl, Buffetstyle. Das Beste daran ist, dass es wirklich all-inklusive it. Man kann hier ganz ohne Geld hinkommen und man würde nichts vermissen. Viele Sonnenliegen, man brauchte diese nicht zu reservieren.
Zwei große Pools.
Nur ein paar negative Sachen aber lassen Sie sich davon nicht beeinflussen ... Die Abendunterhaltung war sehr laut wenn mach direkt daran war (um den Pool herum). Nicht direkt am Strand gelegen und der Strand ist sehr voll and ich fand die Aussicht nicht so angehem, viele Gebäude entlang der Küste. Aber wenn Sie ein oder zwei entspannende und sorgenfreie Wochen mit viel zu essen und zu trinken in guter Umgebung geniessen wollen, dann ist das hier so gut wie sonstwo.
Nicht eine Wolke am Himmel
Dieses Hotel war so gut wie ein 5-Sterne Hotel. Ich war in der Vergangenheit schon oft in der Karibik und der einzige Unterschied war, dass es hier größer war, somit mehr Gäste und Essen und Getränke waren mehr Selbstbedienung im Gegensatz zur Bedienung durch Kellner. Aber die Umgebung, der Komfort und Service waren so gut wie anderswo.
Das Wetter war fantastisch - habe die ganze Woche über keine Wolke gesehen.
Ein Muss für einen Besuch - Mahmya um zu schnorcheln.
My little girl got Ecoli on this holiday
This hotel was beautiful. You did not have to rush for a sun bed. Most guests German, hardly any English.
Food catered for Germans. Monotonous. Cocktails limited. Entertainment poor.
For a relaxing holiday round the pool this hotel was perfect. The rooms were nice and comfortable.
However, what concerned me was that whilst we had Egyptian tummy when out there, which did not prevent us from our normal activities, we were not ill in bed as some people are on holiday. Howwever, when we returned home my little girl had diarrhoea and sickness for 10 days. Our Gp put it down to foreign travel and so did a doctor in Casualty after she fainted when visiting me(I work in a hospital). She was a horrible colour and very pale. Again he put it down to foreign travel and that it should settle. However by day 12 i was very concerned and as I work for a Surgeon he actually saw her, got her seen by Paediatricians and to my horror she had e-coli which had resulted in a low haemoglobin of 4 and rapidly deteriorating renal function. Urgent transfer to another hospital was arranged and she had a blood transfusion. She had haemolytic uraemic syndrome, a result of e-coli. Luckily it was a very mild case of H U S and she appears to be recovering. I think this is something a lot of people are unaware of but a lot of people are admitted with this after foreign travel. Please remember this if you have these symptoms. Most symptoms appear in either young children or older adults.
I am in process of seeking legal advice as investigations have pin pointed this to our Egyptian holiday.
we have just got back from egypt and we stopped at this hotel for 11 days, what can i say about this place other than it was the best holiday that we have had. we have been to a lot of places including jamaica and This was just as good if not better. We took our 12 year old daughter and she loved it. If you go you must go to see the pyramids we went on the coach which was a long trip but well worth it. We left the hotel at 1.00am got to cairo about 9.00am had a great day left cairo about 5.00pm and got back to the hotel at 11.15pm.
The cost was £60 each it also cost this for our daughter. There is the option to fly but this was £174.00 each.
Overall this was a great place, great food, great people great holiday. GO!!!!!!!
What can I say... a very plesent hotel set in beautiful surroundings. If you want a relaxing holiday then this would be ideal.
Makadi is one large resort which only consists of only Iberotel Hotels, probably about 7 or 8 all in all over a 5km radius.
Food was good probably way above average than most, breakfast the best meal of the day. Make use of the dine around option, the Italian and Oriental come highly reccommened, you get a voucher and can expect to pay around £5 extra so very reasonalble.
The day/evening entertainment is mainly for the Germans, infact is all for the Germans! The evening shows are sung in English but spoken in German! Can be a bit loud round the theatre area but does't last that long.
Hotel rooms were bright and spacious, cleaned daily. The resort is maintained to very high standards. All staff are friendly and willing to help at any time.
The only down side was the beach just across the road, was quite busy most of the time so stick to the pool for peace and quiet!
I and many others did find the resort a bit isolating, you can't really get out and about so to speak so really you are confined to the resort.
Still it was a wonderful relaxing 2 weeks, would reccommed this resort to anyone and will certainly go back in a few years to see how it will develop. Would say the trips offered with Thomson are good value for money and would say everyone has to go to Cairo and pay the extra and fly, wish I had as apparently you get to see more than by coach. Luxor was also a good trip seeing the Valley of the Kings. Definatly an experiance.
Guaranteed wonderful holiday!!!
Great hotel, totally all inclusive
This is a superb hotel. Rooms are comfortable and the layout of the complex and the landscaping make it a very pleasant place to stay. The food is good with plenty of choice, buffet style. The best thing about it is that it really is totally all inclusive. You could go with no money at all and you wouldnt want for a thing. Plenty of sunloungers, no need to reserve.
Two large pools
Just a few negatives, but dont let them have undue influence.
. Evening entertainment could be a bit loud if you are nearby (round the pool)
. Not directly on the beach and the beach a bit crowded, and I thought not very pleasant views, lots of building along the coast.
But if you want a relaxing week or two away with no worries and plenty to eat and drink,in good surroundings, this is as good as anywhere.
Not a cloud in the sky
The hotel was as good as 5* AI I have had in the Caribbean in the past the only differences being that it was bigger so more guests and the food and drink were more self service as opposed to waiter service but the surroundings comfort and service were otherwise as good as.
Weather fantastic - didn't see a cloud all week
Must visit - Mahmya Island for the snorkelling
