What Are The 3 Best Family-Friendly Resorts in Makadi Bay?

When you’re searching for luxurious accommodation in Makadi Bay, these 3 resorts check all the boxes. Whether you’re travelling to Egypt as a single-parent family or a whole group. 

  1. The Grand Makadi Hotel
  2. The Makadi Palace 
  3. Grand Waterworld Makadi Hotel

Before we go into each resort in more detail, we should tell you that they all share one great characteristic – they’re all around 20 miles from the airport. So, you don’t have to worry about pegging a super long transfer on to your flight. 

1. The Grand Makadi Hotel 

We’re kicking things off with one of the more family-friendly resorts in Makadi Bay. The Grand Makadi Hotel rests about 30 km south of Hurghada. Boasting 2 pools, 3 restaurants, 3 bars, a host of fun daily leisure activities and a gym, there’s everything you could want for a great time. 

But we promised family fun in the sun, so this five-star resort also offers a variety of amenities specially designed for the little ones. Let your tiny explorers get to grips with an adventure climbing castle, playground and dedicated kid’s club.

Plus, there’s also a mini disco, kids’ movie nights, a children’s swimming pool and even a buffet specially crafted for the kids. So you don’t have to worry about finding something to suit those pickier palates. 

Who’s It Perfect For?

Younger families or single-parent holidays. The kid’s activities are engaging for those smaller hands. But we think older children might get a little bored or put off by the offering. 

2. The Makadi Palace

From a grand hotel to a palace and, as you would expect from a regal setting, the choice of amenities goes through the roof. 

At Makadi Palace, you can make use of 5 pools, 6 restaurants, 4 bars, a fitness club and more leisure amenities. Each eatery focuses on a different international gastronomic scene from Thai to Mediterranean food. But, if that’s not enough choice, you could also take a wander to the nearby Makadi Mall where even more eateries await. 

In addition, The Makadi Palace is actually the sister resort of The Grand Makadi Hotel, so all-inclusive guests have the option of using the services of both resorts. While you’re out and about, you might also enjoy being just 25 km from the shops, bars, restaurants, cafes and all the best things for families to do in Hurghada

Who’s It Perfect For?

Older families. Located bang on the beach, The Makadi Palace also offers a good range of leisure options for kids who don’t want to lounge on the sand. The choice of 5 pools is great. But the inclusion of an Internet cafe, 5 floodlit tennis courts and a 5-a-side football pitch makes it more suited to the older ones. 

3. Grand Waterworld Makadi Hotel

Easily one of the best family-friendly all-inclusive resorts in Makadi Bay. Grand Waterworld Makadi Hotel has everything you could need for an unforgettable escape. As the name would suggest, this place is dripping in water-based shenanigans, but they’re not the only things that make it incredible. 

As well as all the aquatic delights, the resort boasts even more amenities than the others. With 7 restaurants, 9 bars, a fitness centre and a laundry list of leisure activities too. 

But let’s talk about the main event, the water park. In Grand Waterworld, you’ll have the freedom of 5 waterslides including a family slide, a wave pool, a waterfall, an interconnected pool and a winding lazy river. If all that’s not enough watery fun, you’re right on the beach so swimming, snorkelling and diving in the Red Sea are an option too. 

Who’s It Perfect For?

Large families or groups. If you have a larger family that you want to impress with an affordable family-friendly resort in Egypt, this one is for you. The breadth of activities, amenities and that beachfront position are super hard to top. 

Why Choose Makadi Bay

There are plenty of kid-friendly activities in Makadi Bay. With stunning beaches, incredible Red Sea diving opportunities and desert adventures on offer, there’s never a dull moment. 

Take the kids along and try all these awesome adventures: 

  • Snorkel or dive in the Red Sea
  • Relax on the pristine beaches and enjoy stunning views of the surrounding mountains.
  • Take a desert safari and experience the exhilarating adventure of riding camels or dune buggies through the scenic landscape.
  • Visit the nearby ancient city of Luxor: Discover the enchanting history, marvel at the iconic temples and tombs of the pharaohs.

Plus, if you fancy a day trip, you could always grab a change of scenery by heading over the Red Sea and checking out all the best things to do in Sharm El Sheikh.

Not only will they have the time of their lives, but they might also learn more about a new culture. Egypt’s scenery, nature and history are all fascinating and you could experience them first-hand.
