Steigenberger Golf Resort
Ranked #11 of 18 Hotels in El Gouna
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 19 February 2014

Again not too much to add to previous reviews. 3rd time in Steigenberger.
Service improved again compared to previous years. Rooms are now equipped with tea-coffee making facilities and old TV's replaced by flat screens.The dutch-Flemish TV channel BVN is available which is a plus for us.
Food is great from breakfast over luch and dinner, and so is the service not only by waiters but by every member of the staff ( from front office to cleaing to poolattendances to Senior Management).
In Belgium there is a saying " the less one is used at home, the more one is demanding from others". this applies to these guest who give negative comments about the food I guess.
When we were staying at the hotel it was holiday period in Egypt, and because of the missing European clients (political situation in Egypt) there were more Egyptian guests than we are used to.
Children are rather loud at the pool and in the restaurants which is somewhat annoying for European guests. but at night silence rules again at Steigenberger.
The missing European guests should come back to enjoy the good food, the excellent service, quiet noghts and the water and green of Steigenberger golf.
Hope to be back in 2015

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.
