I had read mixed reviews of the Gaddis on this site, so was pleasantly surprised when I arrived for a week in August '11.
The entertainment appears to be geared towards the resident Brit ex-pats (i'm not a big fan of karaoke), but that's fine...i needed a cheap and clean room for my first trip to Egypt and this delivered the goods on both parts (it worked out at about 10 gbp per night at half board.
I arrived during Ramadan and the Mosque next door provided a nice 4am wake up call for myself. It was a little annoying at first but after the first night I took it as an opportunity to wake up early and enjoy more of the day.
As mentioned, the staff are friendly, and the cocktails are CHEAP!!! I recommend the one with 3 shots of ouzo and Gin inside. Plus you buy one and get one free. I only got drunk on my last night (as it was too hot to drink normally) with some Irish dude. The residents are friendly (if a little odd) but that's OK, it all adds to life's rich tapestry.
The breakfast is pretty awful, but the half board dinner menu is ok, especially for the price. Mostly I at out anyway. it only cost a couple of quid to goto Sofras in a taxi.
One thing I will say though....I wasn't prepared for the massive amount of hasstle as soon as I hit the street...it wore me out pretty quick so I spent 3 days at the red sea (Flamenco Resort in El Quesier) to unwind. That review can be found elsewhere.
In conclusion: Great value, friendly / quirky staff, and a nice atmosphere. And the view from the roof is nice too!
I would recommend this to anyone on a really tight budget, or just to anyone who fancies something a bit different.
