“Fab hotel”
Reviewed 15 March 2009

The hotel was wonderful, the location lovely and all local attraction close by, either by bus or Tok Tok. Food was wonderful no problems with illness. We were at the quieter side on the hotel and had the quieter pool which was wonderful. A little spoilt by many German hogging the sunbeds!!!! I would recommend hiring the Pedalo and going round the lagoon. The Golf and spa were really wonderful too. The only downside and it's not the hotel's fault at all, but i think the country. Young women get stared at everywhere they go. Which i found rather uncomfortable, and we did have on incident that one of the members of security staff got fair to friendly with myself when my boyfriend was walking with me, the gentleman decided he was going to kiss me even though i made it clear that i was not happy with his advances. But as i say it's not the hotels fault at all. I would recommend this hotel to anyone but just be a little careful with the locals.

My Boyfriend and I stayed at the Steienberger for 2 weeks. We stayed in a room which felt like it was a villa, very private, and alot of room, our patio looked onto the small river running along side the land, it was a perfect location. The Bathroom was huge! a walk in shower, large mirror.
The bedroom its self was big, alot of wardrobe space, the bed was Queen size. Yet we still had plenty of room to get ready even excersise!.
The food was fantasic. The breakfast buffett could feed you all day, ive never seen so much choice and quality food. The evening meal was also fantatic, chefs cook infront of you, the italian nights were especially nice.
The staff were very helpfull, very polite, yet not intrusive. They wait on you hand and foot.
A really fantastic hotel. El Gouna has 2 main towns, which the hotel staff will tell you about. Both 5-7mins in a(cheap) taxi. The docks are just stunning, yots and ferraris every where. Queit and romantic, very nice choice of bars and resturants, still busy yet relaxing atmosphere. The other town is also nice, more "euroepean" with resturants as in any euroepean country, busier, family friendly, entertainment in the square, although if you go over a little bridge there are some nice bars, with cushoins on the floor facing the water, a real eygytion feel with lanterns and friut pipes avaliable, which although i dont smoke enjoyed very much!!!
A lovely destintation for a romantic break, group holiday, family.

Just returned from a week at Steigenberger Hotel. The main reason for our trip was Golf. The course was in superb condition the service from the staff was first class. The hotel was excellent, staff very helpful, room spotless and contrary to some reports we found plenty of variety in the food on offer. The private beach was a 10 minute bus ride (free) the beach loungers and towels were also free. The Lagoon at the hotel also had free loungers and towels and while perfect for adult swimming it would not be suitable for children. It was our first time in Egypt and would highly recommend this 5 star resort

great hotel with big room great pool, over looking the lake, good food and drink, the only draw back that the sea shore is far away, you have to take a golf cart or a car.

I am writing as Group Leader of 55 persons who stayed there for 4 nights. Although this is a golfer's paradise NONE of us played golf. The hotel rooms are spacious and very nicely appointed. The pool area is splendid, the local beach is on the lagoon and not on the Red Sea itself (this is not clearly stated on their web site), yet a free hotel bus (10-minute ride) can take you to a private beach on the Red Sea each half hour. The beach is very shallow for at least 150 meters and then you can dive. Plenty of Red Sea excursions from the hotel. The comments of all 55 people: "we wish we had a longer stay", or "we will be coming back here". The breakfast buffet is amazing and so is the dinner buffet.

Upon leaving, we requested to meet the Hotel Manager to let him know how we appreciated the standards he has imposed at this hotel.

the hotel is not a 5 star so don't pay the 5 star price's find somewhere else. 2 adults and 2 kids a 9 year old and a 19 month old. the hotel reception is nice looking till they have trouble understanding you that is not a problem as they always get someone how can they will inform you long trouser are to be worn at the buffet and like me you will probably be the only one ha ha, the buffet is not worth the money you can get a lovely meal at the arena or downtown for cheaper even with the kids eating free (meal out £25 all in) they do a free shuttle to mangroovy beach between 9-5 every 30 mins on average that beach is very shallow for about 100 foot so good for toddlers free sunbeds and towels.the hotel has 3 pools of which 1 is a children's pool and a man made lagoon which is always empty. the room i was in was a family room nice and roomy with a fridge (with an mini bar do not use much cheaper to use the supermarket downtown) not to sure about having a glass coffee table which brings me onto el gouna hospital they were fantastic after the little one toppled over the fine chairs they have 14 stitches and an overnight stay in the hospital so no worries there. the local taxi's are 1.50le anyway in el gouna but you can walk to downtown through the golf course nice walk at night and as for the spa fantastic sauna, gym, steam room, hot baths are all free and the massage was very relaxing which was £18 plus tip.

Well, where to start. This hotel was a huge dissapointment. We arrived very late in the day and were shown to our room. We asked for a family room and actually e-mailed the hotel approx. 2 months ago wishing for a quiet location which they did resopnd to. What we were intially given was a family room overlooking the main pool and building work. There was no bed made up for my daughter and as it was 11:30 at night they seemed really put out to find her a bed. We couldnt even get a drink of water form the mini bar.. there was no bar by the time my partner had arrived with water form the bar it was getting on to near 1:00 before my daughter had a bed to stay in and a drink.
New day new room. Nice view but the cleanliness was dreadful. The coffee table had various bit of grunge and fluff grained in. This room (not saying all rooms were the same as the shower room we were given for an hour at the end of the holiday was spotless) was very far from being a 5 star. The hotel was 100% full, so maybe this could be a factor in some of the bad service we experienced. Food was OK, but I will not be recommending this hotel to anyone. Oh and my daughter slept on the sofa and we used a beach towel as under bedding for her to sleep on for the two weeks as a base sheet was not forthcoming! We didnt complain at the time to reception as they just seemed to be not interested and we didnt want to be labelled as whingers. I really hope that some one from the reputable steigenberger chain reads this.
