“A bit of history...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

In a lush garden you find those little chalets, side by side, as they where built in the 70th. A little terrasse and the facilities you need. It might be e bit "worn out".... But, really, I loved to stay here! The breakfast was absolutely satisfying, even the coffee was good! The beach of the hotel is big and nice; all in all you will be happy to stay at this hotel - which is, btw, "all inclusive" clientele is European, lots of Germans, mostly elderly people, which might guarantee a calm holiday.

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

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.

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.
