Stayed here for 1 night during a Contiki program, and we all wished we had an extra night as we didn't really have the time to enjoy the resort. Nice rooms, spacious comfortable and clean. The pool looked really nice although I didn't have time to swim, plenty of food and beverage options also. The resort has a good level... More

We stayed at the Safir Hotel for 1 night with Contiki and was impressed with the hotel. We stayed at some shocker hotels in Egypt while on tour and this one was the best. The hotel has everything you need so you don't have to leave the resort. we had breakfast included with a selection that was amazing. Anything you... More

Overall impressions of the hotel are very good. Of course, the number of stars of hotel does not mean the same in Europe and in Africa, but we are pleased to stay there. Hotel is on half way between new and old town of Hurgada. It has its own private beach including sun beds and parasols. The pool and the... More

So pleased to say ..... Overall first experience of this hotel and Egypt last week was very pleasurable. We had all read recent reviews of this property before we left to stay there. Reviews such as rooms not so good,dirty bathroom, not for the British, and do not stay here rung in our ears as we packed. We hadnt had... More

We stayed in an outside room in June 2012. The lobby and pools were quite impressive and we thought we were in for a 5 star stay. We were wrong. The bathroom was really dirty with stained toilet and shower. I wouldn't stay here again but do go to hurghada - the snorkeling is amazing !

I have just come back from this hotel and would not recommend that English visitors go there. Since I last visited in March 2012 it has new owners and Russian holidaymakers have been encouraged to go there. It has been renamed the Sea Shell, has been made all inclusive, and whilst most of the old staff have been retained, the... More

The rooms, pool area and restaurant were filthy and I mean filthy. There is no choice for meals, every night is the same chicken, beef and fish. The chicken is so dry and none of the food seasoned. There is no fruit or cold meats(no five a day here). The drinks are served in small plastic cups (even the Lager)... More

This hotel needs some changing of management, and a quick one! First of all, the hotel's location is bad. You literally don't have anything around it, to get a bottle of water you have to walk 15 minutes one way (on that heat!). Another thing is the food. Not much choice, pretty poor actually, and a lot of national cuisine,... More

I was here with Contiki in August 2011. This was a last minute switch. The room was an average size for a hotel in the USA so that meant it was larger than an international one. Most of the rooms had a beautiful view. AC worked well, the bed was comfy, and there was a fridge. It was very quiet.... More
