I stayed at the Sultan Bay hotel for a one week. Enviroment was very peaceful and nice at those days. I recommend El Gouna if you are looking for peaceful child-friendly holiday. El Gouna is also good place if you want to relax without noise and young partypeople. Zeytona beach is also free for Sultan Bay customers and it is a nice place to spend day in the sun. You get there by boat, from SB hotel's poolarea.
The staff in the hotel is very friendly. There is also so many policemen that you never have to be a scared of anything. Rooms are very nice and tidy. The restaurant is nice too and food was good. In the hotel, there is a one souveniershop and if you go there, tell Maged that finnish girl, name Satu recommended his shop. I really do, he is nice man and gives good prices.
If you travel alone as a woman, beware a bit too excited service. I travelled alone as a woman and were bit scary how men would treat me there. Beacuse it's a muslim country. I can say fine. Few men were a little bit too helpful or they would have liked to be. You just have to be straight with them if you don't want to play around. I was left alone when I told that I am just in the hotel having vacation, not some holidayromance or something like that. Men there are very interested women from Europe. If you smile to them they take that as a opening conversation. And they want to know everything about you.
Anyway I liked the place and learned so much about the culture and how people act there. Few times we got cheated. So don't pay from anything you don't get right away. And when you give 50 LE for example to the taxidriver, make sure that you and the driver both see the bill at the same time. Sometimes they show you 50 piaster bill and say that this is the one that you gave me not 50 LE bill. They had changed the bill so quickly that you don't even realize that. Prepare also that not every trip go as planned.
