Take a look at the best beach hotels in Makadi Bay.
This 641-room all-inclusive-optional resort has a picturesque beachfront location plus a wide range of family activities in a pleasant three-and-a-half-pearl package. The huge aqua park is a hit with kids, and there are five outdoor pools. The 10 restaurants and bars serve diverse cuisines (but receive mixed reviews) and a free breakfast buffet is provided daily. There's a full-service spa, fitness center, kids' club, and nightly entertainment. The hotel's private beach has water sports and diving, and outdoor activities include tennis, basketball, and volleyball. Guest rooms are classic and spacious, each with balconies, air-conditioning, and electric kettles. Wi-Fi is free throughout, but can be spotty. This is a family-friendly spot, for sure, and travelers looking for more romance should consider the adult-only Iberotel Coraya Beach Resort, which adds excellent restaurants.
The four-pearl Cleopatra Makadi Bay is an affordable all-inclusive resort with a family-friendly vibe. It’s popular with Germans families drawn to the diverse amenities like eight pools, six restaurants and bars, a kids’ club, private beach, and spa. A free breakfast buffet is appreciated by guests, though paying for in-room Wi-Fi is a bit of a drawback. Most guests here spend the majority of their day at the beach or by the pools, and then gather for evening entertainment. The 448 rooms are contemporary, though far from upscale in design, they have flat-screen TVs, kettles, and lightly stocked mini-fridges. For a hotel that has a quieter vibe and all-inclusive rates, check out the adult-only Steigenberger Makadi Hotel.
The four-pearl Fort Arabesque Resort, Spa & Villas has a scenic but isolated beachfront perch on Makadi Bay, away from tourist attractions. Mostly generic room decor and several common areas show the property’s age, while extra fees apply for Wi-Fi and the gym. There are also limited time windows for all-inclusive coverage at the five restaurants and four bars. However, the grounds are stunning, with walking paths in the garden, a long private beach, and five pools (three are heated.) Most of the 444 rooms need an update, but all have balconies or terraces with sea views. Live performances, a great spa, and activities like windsurfing and aqua aerobics round out the amenities. As an alternative, the Sunrise Select Royal Makadi Bay Resort offers higher-quality amenities and better all-inclusive value.
