Turtle’s Inn is a small hotel located in the heart of Abu Tig Marina in El Gouna, one of the most sought-after destinations on the Red Sea coast of Egypt. Looking out onto the marina’s South Basin and its luxury yachts, Turtle’s Inn is in the midst of cafes and bars, specialty restaurants, trendy boutiques, and hip nightlife hotspots; it also benefits from the facilities shared by other small El Gouna hotels in close vicinity. In this diving hotel, scuba divers will find Orca Divers, the on-site dive center offering introductions to the sport, diving holiday packages to explore the underwater wonders of the Red Sea, and snorkeling trips.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Nicely situated in the centre of Marina with easy access to the restaurants bars and beaches. A few English movie channels. 3 minute walk to a sister hotel where you can use the pool with pool bar. Local beach is free to use for guests but all food and drink must be purchased from the local bars. No local coral but many boat trips, dive schools and kite surfing, Shop (for water) duty free (we bought local cigs American Eagle 100 for 5USD!!) and tuktuk Taxi within 1 min from hotel. 25Egp will take up to 3 people any where in ElGouna including Downtown where there are many bars restaurants and shops.

I spent a few nights here at the end of my trip. My stay was a welcome respite from 'real' Egypt.

It was slightly annoying that reception is not located at the hotel. This was not made clear on the booking site.

Room (one of those two pictured on the first floor overlooking the bay) was ok. Quite small but adequate for just me. Wifi sucked, they don't have their own. Just generic El Gouna wifi. Wifi sucked everywhere in Egypt. Room was quite cold. This was January I might add. Everything was modern and there was original artwork painted on the wall. The floor was not clean (sandy mostly.) They needed to actually mopp it, instead of whatever they were doing.

Reception staff (at Captain's Inn) were friendly and helpful. Though the level of English spoken was surprisingly bad. A simple point like 'Can someone empty the bin in my room' was hard to get across (they don't clean every day due to covid.) Another time I tried to reconfirm my airport taxi and the guy could not grasp what I was saying. There was one guy who spoke pretty well.

I wasn't clear over the fact that the swimming pool is located at another hotel, a few mins walk away. Good Indian food at that other hotel. Real Indian in the kitchen.

Breakfast (also not served at Turtle's Inn) was pretty good and varied. Breakfast staff were friendly and helpful.

I came to El Gouna for the diving mostly. Turtle's Inn served it's purpose. Should I return, I may well stay here again.

One of my favorite Gouna hotels so far. The rooms were recently renovated and feels very cozy. The ground floor rooms are open to an inside court, so it allows the sunlight inside the room the whole day which is perfect for me. The location is great as well, in the middle of the Marina.

In general the hotel was not as expected. The pictures were much nicer and much more exciting than the reality of it. It wasn't a terrible experience but I certainly wouldn't be too eager to repeat it again unless I have to. It was adequate but it can be much MUCH better with a few simple changes. I will try to break it down as much as possible.

What works?

1. The location is really great, very close to a lot of shops, restaurant and cafes. A bit noisy especially near the weekends (if there are parties nearby) but if you close the window it's not too much of a problem

2. The staff in general are very friendly, professional and helpful.

3. Check in and checkout processes were quick and easy. No fuss.

4. The restaurant staff were very accommodating, we were late for breakfast several times and they always tried their best to help us out and serve us whatever they can. Very kind and friendly.

What didn't work so well...

1. We stayed in one of the red rooms which did not look very good and didn't feel very calm and welcoming. The rooms are not very well designed, some things inside the room do not function as well as they should. There is also lot of unused space/ space used unwisely in the rooms. The storage space (especially in the bathroom) was close to non existent which was very problematic for a 6 night stay in a double room with girls (things got messy)

2. The ventilation of the room was really bad. At night, we weren't able to sleep with the window open as insects would enter the room (there are no shutters) and the AC was directed at the beds which made it way too cold even when set on 27 degrees and with two covers. This really disrupted our sleep. We were either suffocating or freezing.

3. Some of the pools we had access to were not very well kept and maintained. They seemed old and unclean. In desperate need of a renovation. They were also unserviced. We had to deliver food from a nearby restaurant because we wanted some snacks.

4. The breakfast buffet has scarce variety. We stayed for 6 days, we ate the same things for 6 days in a row, There is absolutely no variety. We also found out about the omelettes and crepes by chance because we asked. There was no indication that they exist otherwise.

The room is fitted with all you need. Small fridge, hair dryer, soap, shampoo, hand lotion....
There´s also an electric kettle, coffee, tea and a bottle of water will be provided daily.
Room is kept clean very properly. The security staffs are all very friendly and helpful.
Location of the Hotel is top and the breakfast, which is provided in the Captain´s Inn is absolutely fantastic and tasty.

This was a very pleasant and comfortable experience. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The rooms are occupied with basic needs and if there is anything more you need the staff is happy to help. The facilities are scattered across different locations, however all in the same area-less than a minute walking distance.

My son and I absolutely love going to El Gouna. We used to drive there from Cairo when we lived there, and now we have been on two holidays in 4 months and have stayed at Turtles Inn. The staff at Captain's Inn (where you check in and collect beach towels and have breakfast) are like our second family. We are always warmly welcomed and feel happy and contented throughout our stays. This trip was no different - in fact, we loved it even more as we had the pool at Mosaique Hotel pretty much to ourselves all week and we had our favourite room at Turtle's Inn. The room was kept spotlessly clean and the beds were really comfortable. Breakfasts were superb and we always enjoy the pancakes and this time, fresh Egyptian strawberries. Thank you to all for an amazing stay. We will be back again during Ramadan 2024.

It is a very nice hotel. Whilst it is right at Abu Tig marina. We had no noice in our room even with a window open. The staff and service are amazing! Breakfast is also really good. A lot of choices and al the food is of high quality. When you leave the hotel you are right at the marina and you will find a lot of amazing restaurants and bars. When you arrive you check in at a different hotel (captain’s inn) but the hotel is a 30 second walk. Towels and breakfast are also at captain’s inn. Staff at the hotel will take care of all luggage for you. Off course there are always small things I can find for improvement. The bathroom was clean and in good condition but after a shower the floor would be wet. But other than that it is a really relaxed and quiet hotel.

Great spot to stay to kitesurfing at Makani beach club which is only 5 minutes tuktuk ride away. Nice breakfast by the marina and great selection of restaurants for dinner. Tandoor, an Indian, had a great choice of dishes and chilled ambience!
