    Food is of an excellent standard. Fresh pizzas cooked to request at lunch time. Fresh eggs cooked to request at breakfast. Chefs work very hard to provide a variety of food. Always easy to find something to eat. With 6 other resturants you can book for evening you never even have to enter main one. Best evening restaurant is the Asian. Chefs willing to make something extra for those who are awkward like my daughter without not fuss which was greatly appreciated.

This resort is absolutely great! We were there eight times, we really feel there like in our second home. No matter if you stay there with your family, or friends and even though the hotel is full it don't feel too busy as its very spacious. All of the staff took good care of us, as they always do. Food overall was good especially in ala carte resturants. Beach and sea - can't even explain how we love it there. We almost haven't used pools - there's plenty of them, but in fact you don't need them. At least me ... and my family prefer sea. And finally the animation team, what a gorgeous bunch of happy-go-lucky people! Always so cheerful and lovely! All in all a highly recommendable hotel!!)) read hotel review

Excellent Hotel

We stayed a week at this Hotel. FOOD: Many choices of places to eat. Multiple restaurants for breakfast & lunch plus numerous a la' carte restaurants for evening meals. The Mexican restaurant also serves breakfast, which is less busy than the main buffet restaurant. (The omelette's are amazing!) At lunch time, there is two buffet restaurants. The second smaller one is less busy, but is very geared towards the Russians! The other restaurant is massive, but is very chaotic, and staff seem to struggle at peak times to keep on top of clearing & resetting tables. This is no disrespect ... to the staff, and to be honest, its the guests that make it chaotic; dashing, diving about, pushing, shoving, grabbing etc. A couple of days out of the seven, (three i think) they put on a BBQ for lunch. The lamb kebabs are AMAZING! There is also a pool bar which serves snacks & pizzas. The buffet restaurant in the evening is a lot quieter & less stressful than lunch time! We ate the majority of evening at the various a la' carte restaurants. On the whole, they where excellent, the Mexican & T-bones being the exceptions. They are both very rushed, and have the feel of a fast food restaurant. Literally, once you order, your food is with you within like 2 mins! We also tried the Asian, Italian & Bedouin - these are totally different to the mexican & t-bones. Very relaxed, not rushed in the slightest & the food is amazing, just how it should be! ROOMS: Our room was lovely. Air con which was a welcome bonus! Massive bathroom & separate shower, balcony with seating area. The beds & pillows were very comfy. Rooms were cleaned daily, bedding seemed to be every other day. Towels changed daily. The accommodation is set over the whole hotel complex. At first we thought we where miles away from everything (we arrived late at night). The following day we soon realized nothing was more than a 4-5min walk. POOLS/BEACH: The swimming pools were lovely! Nice & clean. Plenty of sun beds, no need to reserve with towels. Towards the end of the week, the pool seemed to get a lot busier, this was due to a pool being closed at the later end of our holiday. That said though, we still had no problems getting a sun bed. Towels are available from the towel huts. I would highly recommend asking for a "red flag" to stop getting pestered. Numerous people come to talk to you from the Spa, Diving school etc, which gets a bit much sometimes when you just want to relax, however the red flags stop all that. ENTERTAINMENT: There is bags of things to do at this hotel! They have an action packed activity schedule during the day to keep you busy if you get bored! This ranges from water polo to aqua gym from yoga to learning a new language! We only did aqua gym, which was great & i really enjoyed it! The animation team are the back bone of this hotel & work so hard. They always have got time to chat to you. They make sure they ask all guests every day if everything is ok with the food, rooms etc which is really nice. They are very enthusiastic and love a bit of banter & a chat. There is no pressure from the to join in any activities which again is nice. Overall, we had an excellent holiday at this hotel. read hotel review

We stayed at the sunrise makadi bay for two weeks in August with family and friends. We all agreed this was the best holiday we have been on!! The staff were incredible, the food and a la carte restaurants delicious and the animation team were the friendliest, most helpful and no hassle team we have ever come across! They made our holiday. Kareem is an absolute star and would do anything for you. Other stuff including gazal, yana, brown, moris, jamaica etc are all fantastic at what they do too! They always have a smile on their faces. The hotel ... is big however it was always so quiet strangely as there are many pools and restaurants to chose from. There was never a problem getting a sunbed. The men in the little shops are also great. Eric and Gerges were very friendly and we bought some gorgeous bags without being pestered. If you love a boat trip we definitely recommend ABDUL from blue waves on the beach. We wanted to bring him home with us! Such an amazing man. We had a great trip with them and it was definitely the best trip we have ever been on. And we've been on many. read hotel review
