“Vacation is not a vaction if not in Giftun Hurghada”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

Hotel is old which brings very nice memories as for the past 20 years this was the only place for summer vacation, rooms are cozy, just fitting in space and clean.
Amazing beach at all day times, beautiful and sunny in the morning, relaxing with amazing sky at night.

Staff are friendly and food is OK.

Whenever I go there, no need to go out of the hotel if your stay is for 2-3 days

Stayed November 2012, traveled with family

Giftun is the best place i have ever been. And i have spent time in more than 500 different hotels all over the World.
Everything is absolutely top.
Food, drinks, shows , super staff, beach, rooms.
Christmas evening in Giftun... never seen nothing like it.. its a must do.
You cant spent money and noone is begging inside the hotel.
My biggest yes ever to Giftun.

Old and worn, but cozy and definitely not without charm. Located at what must be, one of the best, beaches in Hurghada. Shopping and restaurants are just outside the hotel entrance. All inclusive, and food varied in quality. Mostly on the downside unfortunately. Service however was very good, staff friendly and helpful. Spoke more German than English.

Weather was excellent,(May 2010) hotel only ok. Food made me a little ill, and one day had pigeons on the buffee which put me off. Same type of pastrys for lunch, dinner, breakfast and snacks and all a little dry. Room was ok and clean but all a little old now as this hotel is getting on. 80 % germans staying there. Mini bar in the room was 2 bottles of water, 2 cokes, 1 sprite and no more.Although refilled daily. Evening entertainment was a joke really bad quality, miming to grease songs...no thanks. Walking distance to Mc D and KFC which was good for me. As a postcard that the hotel have up from 1994 this hotel was one of the first around now there are better. Thing to think of is that they are building like there is no tomorrow lots and I mean lots of hotels going up half finished every where... Egypt shop owners very pushy also a pain after a while haggle for even a mars bar outside the hotel. Sad but true.
Too far from the sites (Caro, Luxor)
Nice plus very near to airport.

Me and my husband both decided to go for short holiday before X-mas anywhere and take any last minute as it was not standard holiday action only "just go for some sun". We went to TUI agent and decided to take the cheapest option but in middle standard. The lady promissed that this hotel will be just perfect for such last minute trip. We decided in 10 minutes and paid for the trip really small money. Our holiday was just perfect, well organized and worth each euro we paid. Not only that for really small money you get sun few hours flight from home but also hotel itself was perfect for thed money we paid. The truth is that rooms in bungalows are old and old-fashioned- but honestly- you only sleep there. Rooms were big enough, comfortable, SAT TV, absolutely clean and had everything you needed. Eeach has nice kind of vernada what is also very nice.
STAFF- very friendly, nice people, be prepared to tip them but the were never asking themselves! All was in polite way! Always smiling, greeting you.
Food and ALL INCLUSIVE- we had full tables everyday, whatever you want...that was fantastic. Also on the beach they have few restaurants/bars all tasty and prepared for Europeans.
In the hotel there are also "rooms" not bungalows- I heard they are better- but did not see them.
They have beautifull garden, few restaurants, bars, beach bars full of everything.
Beach is v. nice- you do not need anything else for this money.
It is better to go before breakfast and book a bed on the beach- sad but true- otherwise you will not get good place. Do not take last beds as it is too loud there!
All was perfect for the price we paid and I recommend this place for every budget trip!
