That's the reason it's so cheap, they are the only 2 people there.

The UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office have an advisory out for Egypt and that has frightened a lot of folk from visiting anywhere in Egypt. Details can be found here

I stayed at this hotel last may, and it was fantastic, and that was not long after the protests broke out. There was no trouble and the hotel was packed with uk, american and German tourists. It's far away from those places considered a threat. Just check out its reviews on trip advisor. There is no threat to this hotel or its surroundings. http://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Hotel_Review-g297549-d602139-Reviews-The_Grand_Makadi-Hurghada_Red_Sea_and_Sinai.html

Oh, I do agree but my point was that a lot of people are scared off by the unrest in the country, as "Savo" suggests, and so I still suggest that this level of discount would not be available if they did not need to fill empty rooms.

Nonsense - sea temp is higher now than at any time of the year in the med (21C)

Avg land temps around 25C

Mind you, we went in November and played spot the tourist. It was a ghost town with more street cleaners on the streets than tourists.

Just got back from Hurgada, stayed at the Royal Makadi Beach (5* ?). Very disappointed. Drive from airport was like being in a war zone. Half completed hotels everywhere, no one working on them. Weather okay but quite windy most days. Big issues with sun loungers, no not towels put on them just disappear at night to be brought back in the morning. To be fair, not the Germans this time but some other nation pretty close. Buffet style meals were more like canteen meals. Even at this price, wouldn't tempt me back - ever.

Let's not try to confuse onlookers here. Different hotel you're reviewing. The half finished hotels are in the center of Hurghada and not nearby to the Grand Makadi. Miles away. The food at the hotel offered here is fantastic. Ive even got photos I took of the presentation they put into making it all look nice ( as well as taste )

Hey! I'm not trying to confuse anybody, just giving my opinion of a holiday in the same bay and star rating. If it worked for you fine. But in all honesty, after two days I couldn't wait to get home.

when getting weather stats please try using real time data and not stats from holiday brochures who often deliberatley 'calibrate' the weather to sell more holidays!

deary me! you do realise weather changes by the day so useless as a guide to average weather conditions.

you compounded it with giving a bbc 'current' weather forecast. BBC are always useless at real time forecasting for 5 days. many a time I have been on hol and BBC state rain / 23C etc for the next week and its 35C+ and sunny all week.

Also, I didnt use a brochure!

But if you stayed at The Grand Makadi like fluidz did, you might have had a different opinion ''but you didn't'' anyone know the price of potatoes, coz it's relevant?

Friends at work just came back from Egypt - was meant to be away from all the troubles but they said it was their worst holiday ever. Not trying to scare people off but I would strongly think against this as there is a reason it is this cheap to go to Egypt at the moment!!
#25
Great deal. Love Makadi bay & been there three times now. Hurghada itself is horrible but this is no where near Hurghada. If I wasn't tied to school hols I'd take up this deal in a heartbeat.
#26
I have every reason to believe the resort itself is safe but my concern would be day trips etc. As nice as the hotel may be we like to explore under our own steam and sometimes we may not always want to used guided tours as we may just want to take a ramble. On that basis I would not feel safe booking this holiday as I would feel confined to the hotel.

Been like that in Egypt for years .... never mind since the recent uprisings.

Friends of mine went there years ago and they had an armed escort when they took a day trip to the pyramids. They were in Cairo and the tourist hotel area was ring fenced by armed guards. I imagine you'd still get heckled constantly by the locals as well .... lol.

It's somewhere I'd love to visit myself, but I like to explore on holiday - as you say - and I doubt I could be bothered with the hassle in Egypt at the moment.

If you just want to park yourself on a sun lounger by the pool and not leave the hotel for a week though, I'd imagine this is a good deal. Resort is likely to be fine trouble-wise. Only way you're likely to hit problems as a tourist is if it happens to kick off big style while you're there and the airport is affected as far as flights out go.

Each and everyone to their own I guess but this does not seem to be for the ramblers like us, although we have had some close shaves rambling in Mexico, New Orleans and The Ukraine. The thing is I have been to morocco before and that takes pestering to a whole new level as they will physically grab you. I get a slight impression Egypt may be like that which is why a lot of people recommend guided tours in both countries. I don't mind a guided tour now and then but not every time I step outside the hotel.

Yes we had armed guards in the Ukraine also many years ago, Felt kinda cool going to nightclub with your own armed militia.

I can also vouch for this place. I took my kids a few months after the riots and there was no sign of any trouble. The hotel is truely 5*. Food is great and also are the facilities.

Indeed. I refer to breaks like this as "compound holidays". :p

Not my cup of tea at all (last holiday for me was a jaunt round the Czech Republic last autumn ... loved it) but as you say, each to their own. Plenty of my friends love this sort of holiday.

I stayed here for two weeks last year for £500. Seems a good deal. The place is OK. The rooms were large and there was decent (if fairly bland) range of food. Hopefully they have sorted out the AI drinks as when I was there they were only just starting AI and it was a joke. There were times when you have to wait 30 minutes to get served (assuming they had glasses) and then you only got half pint glasses. Also the beach is in another hotel.

Read the reviews on Trip Advisor to make up your mind. You get what you pay for just remember you are only paying £300!

Been to Egypt 3 times, got the trots every time!
Last time, went to the 3rd to top hotel in Hurghada (based on trip advisor) the Steigenberger Al Dau Beach Hotel (£900pp). Nice hotel, bad food based on the need of the Russians that are all over Egypt.
Local gangs of lads are abusive and Hurghada itself is a building site, such a dreadful place. Reminded me of the film 'Blade Runner'. Also shop keepers can get nasty if you don't buy there crappy fake watches. Beware!
#39
Ive stayed here 4 times over the last 6 years. Its attached to the Grand Makhadi and let me tell you its 5 star all the way. Restaurant quality is top notch and the whole complex is absolutey first class. if you're uming and ahing....dont!!! as Mr Nike said 'just do it'
.
#40
ok so this is cheap but thats becuase you have to go tomorrow!!!
lol I think the point that its only good for people who don't have jobs is a bigger factor then the unrest in the country (not resort) or the fact that at the moment the weather is a bit cooler with the current breeze and chilly nights ;)
