“Perfect for divers”
Reviewed 5 November 2013 via mobile

The hotel has all you need for a dive holiday. Rooms are clean, bed and pillows are comfortable. The hotel has the perfect location if you dive with Orca Dive. Breakfast is served at Captain's Inn and has choices for everyone's taste. There are plenty of restaurants at walking distance, otherwise with a Tok Tok downtown El Gouna is just a 5 minute drive. The only thing to improve is the shower, it is only a 60x60 cm so the cold shower curtain is always sticking to you which is annoying. A glass door would be more comfortable and would give you more space in the shower.

Actually this is my second time in this Hotel, I loved it from first sight! Rooms are very clean, a bit small but it doesn't matter as it is so clean well equipped and I used it for a relaxing cozy sleep at night. Staff is very helpful. The location is perfect on Abu Tig Marina. You are just couple of minutes away from a variety of restaurants and bars serving different sorts of international cuisines. I definitely recommend this Hotel for a nice relaxing vacation on the Red Sea.

If you are looking for a great LLovation, relaxation , and don't bother with the facilities in the hotel, just a clean room and staff do his work without any extras but you go to everywhere every day it's very easy .

When I planned our stay in El Gouna I was looking for a hotel, which was not far away from the kite spots up north. I convinced my wife in diving, so a dive station must be around the corner of the hotel. So I discovered this hotel, which fulfilled both requirements. The kite spots are 15min away by walking, but it is no problem to call a Tuk Tuk at the reception by request.
The hotel is clean and modern. The rooms are a little bit small and I wish that we have had a balcony. The athmosphere was very pleasant. The service at the receiption is very good.
Breakfast will be served in a neighbour hotel, the Captains Inn. There is a breakfast buffet, where you could have a rich breakfast.
Pool could be used at Captains Inn and one at a bigger hotel.
The only thing which I was not so lucky about was the bathroom. The shower was tiny, it was nearly an acrobatic act to turn around and the drain of the shower spread an unpleasant smell into the bathroom.

The location is amazing ! it is in the most beautiful area of El Gouna .. the view infront of the hotel is breath taking for hanging out at night

The restaurant for breakfast was very good

The hotel gives you free access to the best beach in el gouna (the moods) which was the highlight of the trip

The reception service is very friendly and helpful

The rooms are a bit tight (but you aren't really checking in a 5 star hotel to expect spacious rooms and bathrooms) ..

Overall I would definitly stay in here again on my next visit (If you are mostly outside the hotel and need it for sleeping that is definitly the place for you .. if you are intending to spend most of your time in the hotel room, that might not really be the place for you)
