Even many tour search systems do not distinguish between Makadi Bay and Hurghada, considering them as one single resort. This is another inconvenience that arises in the process of choosing a voucher. Specify the location of the hotel before buying a tour to get to Makadi Bay, or try not to get here as you like.
Hotel staff at Makadi Bay knows Russian. Of course, this is not Sharm and not Hurghada, where all the hotel staff speak Russian, here in our language they say "through one." This is a very big plus, since in small resorts such a situation is a rarity. Recently, we talked about the resorts of El-Gouna and El-Kusair , where the Russian language is almost unknown , and this is becoming a serious obstacle for our travelers.
The English word "bay" ("bay") is translated as "bay", and the resort of Makadi is named so for a reason. It really is a bay with magnificent beaches and coral reefs. The sea is the advantage of Makadi Bay number one.
Local beaches are praised by all tourists. A small depth makes the water very warm and pleasant. Beaches are sandy, although corals are still found in them, and you can not do without special shoes.
Rich coral reefs make the trip into the water interesting, as if swimming in an aquarium with tropical fish. These reefs do not allow the formation of large waves, and children can splash in the water with pleasure, and you do not have to worry about them.
However, some beaches are too shallow, which irritates tourists. But even in this case, do not be discouraged, because no one forbids to go swimming to a nearby beach, it is not forbidden, although it is not welcomed by the hotel staff.
Hotels and Rates
At the time of this page of our website, there are 22 hotels in Makadi Bay. A dozen more are under construction, we can not predict their number at the time of your reading of this article.
Of these 22 hotels there is not one "treshki", only 5 "fours", and all the other 17 are classified as 5 stars.
If you read reviews of tourists on the Internet about the hotels Makadi Bay, you will find many interesting details. The conclusion will be obvious - these hotels do not "pull" on their five stars. Meals are meager, mediocre service, here and there tourists steal things and money and many other shortcomings.
There is a feeling that the hotels have agreed among themselves, went to the Egyptian Ministry of Tourism and bought themselves starlets in bulk. Given the rather high level of corruption in Egypt, no one will be surprised at this story. By the way, Egypt is considered a less corrupt country than Russia. In the last ranking of the most decent countries of 2014 they have 94th place out of 174, and we have 136th.
