“Hey Hey Hey, it's a sunny holiday! The animation team where fantastic!!”
Reviewed 27 July 2009

We booked this hotel on the internet so we did not no what to expect. When we arrived we were put into the Rhinna INN which is not very nice rooms, the grounds and pool in the Inn are lovely but the room as small, dark and badly air conditioned. We complained and got moved straight away to the rhinna resort the main part of the hotel where everything happens. our rooms was lovely and spacious and ideal location right by the main pool so we could pop in and out all the time. The food was great freshly made pancakes, crepes and omlettes in the morning!!!

But what really made our holiday was the animation Team. They were fantastic with activites everyday for all to join in on and a different type of entertainment every night. They put on the best entertainment we have seen in any other hotel before. they are very friendly, down to earth and fun for every age. IIyes the chief animator really puts in 100% and is so enuthiastic. Chiko and azzez where alot of fun and everyone seemes to love them too. They were all a great laugh and really made our holiday alot of fun!!!

Hotel
Modern with spacious bedrooms at the "resort" but heard that the bedrooms at the "Inn" were very small. The eating areas were slightly cafeteria type, but no real problems in this respect - just the ambiance.
The grounds, swimming pools and facilities are excellent and the animation team were above average.
There were no problems with the reserving of sunbeds - I think because there was a lack of the usual suspects.
I would say that 40% of the guests were Egyptian; 40% Flemish speaking Belgian, and the other 20% were a mix of Dutch, French, British etc. I must say that it did not seem fair to us that some of the female guests wore burquas and full body swimsuits, whereas the husbands wore ordinary swimming shorts.....but who am I to criticise a local culture - just didn't seem fair.

Surrounding area
The local lagoon was nice....with beautiful villas on the shore, and great for a morning stroll. The sea beach is well worth a visit - very shallow and then coral reefs with beautiful fish.
Abu Tig Marina is just a £1 Tuk Tuk ride away, and is fantastic.....beautiful boats, street parties, shops, restaurants, pubs, and prices a fraction of Sharm.

Food
The food at the hotel was really very good at all meals - something for everyone, hot, varied, large selection and tasty. The local beer and red wine were very good and The two "pay extra" restaurants on site were excellent and reasonable. Best fillet steak I ever had.
Drink at the Abu Tig Marina was about the same as the UK and a main course was about £8 to £12. The wine was however overpriced

Weather
Everyone quotes the temperature in the shade. This was about 38c every day, but in the full sun, it was 51c to 57c every day....great if you like it. It was not oppressive, with a light breeze. There is no rain out here, so it's a year round place.

Overall
I'll be back. We all loved it. If you want a snorkling trip, go with the on site "Easy Dive" - half price of the other advertised boat trips.

Gripes
None really....just my own opinion that parents who take balling babies and very young infants to this type of heat should reconsider.....yes, I'm being polite.

Stayed at rihanna in march and june 09 with large family and then just me and the wife.
good location near downtown and lovely weather, staff very friendly and always very polite. We found the food better than a lot of hotels with plenty of variety. Peanuts bar at the back was a good haunt but need a better music selection. Lagoon beach was a perfect chillout, the rooms cleaned nicely and reception staff were very helpful. Try to learn a few basic arabic words, the staff appreciate it. I can recommend the little cafe just
past jobos bar on the left for coffee in downtown and a good beer in Boxers bar. Have been to the rihanna twice this year and will definitly go back.

Do not believe previous negative reviews of this hotel.Myself and my wife,both in our 40's have visited Egypt twice before,Taba and Sharm.This hotel and resort was the best so far.The hotel although large is spacious.The room was large and airey with a double and a single bed.[One of the most comfortable beds of any hotel we have stayed!]The room was spotless and the air con excellent.
A choice of three pools,all very clean and well maintained.The animation team work hard to please and entertain the guests and their evening shows are really worth seeing.
THE FOOD...EXCELLENT!!We cannot believe how anyone can complain about it.Have stayed at several all inclusive 4 & 5 * and the food at the Rihana was comparable to any of these,if not better than most.A wide choice with themed nights and BBQ along with friendly service.
Lovely resort and easy to get about on the local bus service or tuk tuks.Both very cheap.
Hourly shuttle bus to the beach,10 mins drive away.This was the only disappointment,not at all attractive and basically a building site.Definatley not the Red Sea as at Taba or Sharm - but El Gouna is a man made resort on several lagoons and is still a work in progress!
Weather as usual was fantastic.Never a cloud seen and hot!Hotel staff all very pleasant.Peanuts bar was fun but for a quieter atmosphere and pleasant gardens go to the Sunset lounge - brilliant service!bBarman works so hard to please and always smiling and ready to refresh your glass.
All in all a fantastic hotel and resort,combined with friendly staff.Would definately return.

Just back from a weeks stay and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Weather was fab,very very hot,three pools @ the hotel,also a lagoon beach and a sea beach (approx 5 mins away,free shuttle bus evey hour or tuk-tuk approx 50p each). Food was varied,2 restaurants,the one we preferred was the Plaza,which was smaller and more intimate,but both seemed to serve the same food. Hotel is in a great location,2 mins walk away from Downtown with many shops/bars and restaurants. The Marina is a 5 min ride away,again tuk-tuks cost 50p each or buy a bus ticket for the week for approx £2,use as often as you like,takes you all around El Gouna,Downtown,The Marina and stops off at most of the hotels,great value for money. Eating out - there are many places to chose from,food/meals are cheap but expect to pay around the same as the UK for alcohol. The weather is very hot and getting hotter by the day,be sure to take high sunscreen and mosquito repelant for nights. The rooms are basic but clean and the air-con was great. We've been to may other places in Egpyt including - Sharm,Taba,Hurghada,Luxor..and can honestly say that ElGouna is now our favourite,without a doubt. Our only grumble would be that there were only 2 bars open @ the hotel in the eveining/night,the rest closed @ 5.30pm,we feel that the beach/pool bars need to stay open longer. Our next trip to Egypt will definately be back to El Gouna - we loved it. Hope you enjoy as much as we did.
