“Loved it!”
Reviewed 26 January 2014

We got back last Friday (24th Jan) after 2 weeks at this hotel. We loved it! The weather was great, clear blue skies with temperatures every day in the mid to high 20s and a light to moderate breeze.
We gave our travel agent instructions to find us a sun and golf holiday to get away from the British winter and this place was perfect. The hotel is 5* - those that criticise on this site obviously don't know that hotel star ratings are determined by the facilities on offer (check out any hotel rating guide - try superpages.com) not an individuals opinion of the quality of those facilities. Having said that, in my opinion the quality is good!
Our room was spacious and clean, with all the things we needed (there's never enough hangers, so I always bring lightweight cheap plastic ones), comfortable bed, shower room, tv, etc, etc and huge balcony with comfortable furniture.
The buffet restaurant was really nice, without that horrid 'canteen' atmosphere that we've found in other similar hotels. The breakfast menu was perfectly fine and just as expected. Dinner was excellent! We found a few quiet cosy and romantic tables for two looking out towards the pool most evenings for dinner. The 14 day rotating themed menu was the best we've come across. I recall delicious roast duck with orange sauce, fabulous roast lamb and lovely fish dishes. There's always plenty of fresh salads, mixed salads and fresh steamed vegetables. The dessert selections was also divine. The staff are friendly and helpful and it only takes a couple of days for them to remember what table you prefer and what wine you want with your dinner. We tried the Rotisserie Restaurant on evening. It's just across the lagoon, a 10 minute stroll or a few minutes on the shuttle boat. It was nice for a change of scene but so quiet it lacked any atmosphere and the food was just OK. We tried 'dine-around' one evening and went to a lovely restaurant at the marina. Because you have to book and get a voucher from the hotel, we hadn't seen the menu and with only 60 LE each that would only cover the cheapest item on the menu, we just went for it and had a very nice meal that cost us a lot more than expected. We'll know next time. We also went for a quiet lunchtime drink at Puddleduck, Downtown and a simple lunch at the marina just to check out all the fantastic boats!
My husband loved the golf! He'd booked only 3 rounds and was tempted to add an extra game. The course surrounds the hotel and is well kept. I'm told "it's not difficult, but it's long".
So, overall we thought this was one of our best holidays (see my other reviews if you want to know what I'm comparing it against). For a winter sun get-away it's perfect. Only 5 hours flight time from the UK and almost guaranteed weather. We're very seriously thinking about going same time next year.

I stayed with my family for 3 nights, all i can say it is an average hotel, the room finishing is standard, the breakfast beaufet is ok, but the restaurant staff is under-qualified, the beach is on the lagoon and isn't pleasant at all, but there is a beach on the sea but you have to go by shuttle bus which is every hour.
Overall, i would rate this hotel 7/10

We went there for New Year's (2012/2013). It was great! Great staff and a spacious Spa. Our room was utterly too far though so make sure you get a good room! Great breakfast as well. Will definitely be going there again.

I've been there in August with a group of my friends..... simply the worst hotel I've been to ever ... rooms had alot of broken things like the air conditioning , fridge the food is awful as we stopped going to the breakfast after our second day . Don't ever try that hotel as there are alot of hotels better than this one.

Small pool. Very small lobby
Not fancy by all means. Some buildings are renovated but not all...so some rooms still have old fashioned TVs (not LCDs) as an example.
If you decide to go, go for the building block # 5...i think it has teh best view over the lagoons.
Breakfast was not nice. Boring and never felt fresh
Always felt that employees give more attention and care to non-Egyptian customers...not a nice feeling at all.
Good value for money (versus other 5 star hotels in El Gouna).
Do rent a boat for diving/ snorkeling with Mahmoud...it is worth it.
No playground for kids. A very small place (at least versus that of Sheraton)

Room Tip: Building block # 5 (although i did not stay there) 2nd floor

Our recent visit, as an outside (Dine around) guest to this Hotel, was NOT what We expected from a 5 Star establishment. We have been there before (2 years ago) and had a very memorable experience, superb interiors, wonderful Pool, Great service & a VERY WARM WELCOME on that occassion..... But NOT this time around, the welcome was COLD, The service POOR.
When we arrived, the welcome was below average. I waited near to the bar for my wife to return from (powdering her nose) and was passed by on many occassions by the barman and the head waiter without any sign of a smile or a welcoming comment. We were told which was our table without being taken there and seat was NOT pulled out for the lady. The meal was a pleasent Buffet WITHOUT ANY OF THE SERVICE, Nor did the Head waiter approach us to see if we we ok, excess cutlery was Not cleared throughout our stay.... NOT 5 star treatment at all.
***** HOWEVER, the customer Relations manager was SUPERB at the end of our visit, he even offered to TAKE US HOME in his own car when our taxi was late, He deserves the 5 stars...
