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

... for an hour or so then get our snorkel equipment and head back to the boat for a short 15 minute ride to the coral reef where we will snorkel, This is my 5th or 6th time snorkeling and it is something I have really come to enjoy doing on vacation. The reef is beautiful and calm but we do not see a whole bunch of fish, none the less it is very enjoyable. As I ...

The Christians painted icons over the pagan art and used the temple as a church and then in the 13th century a Muslim mosque was built on the then buried temple. The mosque is still used today although with a new entrance! Although Amunhotep built the temple proper much of the rest of the temple was built by Ramses II and there are several statues of him here, there is ...

The group had a few more dance parties so of course we went too. One was a party on the open deck 11 and it was called White Nights. Everyone came in white clothes (except those of us who did not have white!). It was a beautiful evening and a lot of fun. They were a great coup of people and I will remember my times with them very fondly! I hope our promises to keep in touch work ...

Did I achieve anything by doing this, probably not but for a brief moment I snapped, anyway it made me feel like I got one back on these buggers.

Cruise ships are not generally targeted due to their high speed and
height of the open decks, making it difficult to for pirates to
board. However extra security measures were put in place. The outside
decks were patrolled 24/7 by several security staff, peering through
binoculars, on alert for craft entering our security zone. High
