It's our second stay in captain's inn we just love it. Great great location, value for money and very cozy rooms. Gives you free access to the moods beach, the best beach located in marina. Quick check in service. Breakfast and hotel restaurant on the marina shores which allows you to enjoy the sunny morning breakfast and the fresh breeze at night. Gouna is the place to be.

My husband and I spent 3 nights in Captain's Inn; we chose the hotel because we wanted a Marina hotel. The hotel location is in the middle of everything! You have restaurants, a supermarket, the beach (you get free access to Moods beach which was very pleasant) and the Pool (you either use Three Corners Ocean View or Ali Pasha's pools) all around you.

Check in was fast, we booked a room with the back view. The room had a nice balcony overlooking the small backyard. We checked a Marina View room and a Suite, if you are booking a Marina View, ask for one with a Balcony because the ones with windows didn't make sense because you need to open them in order to see the Marina. The suite had a huge terrace that overlooked the Marina; also it accommodates 3 people (one double bed and one single bed). The only fault with the suite was that it had the same bathroom size as the rest of the rooms which is pretty small.

Our room was small, everything was compact but we didn't mind because we were not planning on spending much time in it anyway. The breakfast was surprisingly good, there was an omelet station and a pancake maker. You can either sit inside or outside right on the Marina with all the lovely views.

Overall it was a nice hotel in the middle of everything and I am sure we will stay there again soon!

We have just come back from a 10 night stay at the Captains Inn and from the reviews I have read on Trip Advisor I had to wonder if we were talking about the same hotel. I certainly would not call it excellent or even good. The room we had was tiny and we had to move the bed to get into the wardrobe. The safe was a joke - it was portable- we could have picked it up and walked out with it!!! The stairwells and corridors were dark and gloomy and the whole place just looked tired.
The one and only reason I gave this an "average" rating was the breakfast - they were excellent. In fact the best bit about the hotel. The only other redeeming feature was the afternoon waiter who looked after us brilliantly, always warm and welcoming delivering coffee and cold beer with a smile. The reception staff failed to pass on a message about our transfer back to the airport, but were good at calling the taxi that we had to pay for to get to the airport to catch our flight.
Don't get me wrong, if you want budget then this is the place for you but for this to be ranked above the Movenpick........come on! Who are they trying to kid!

Dear Ms. Gill,

I would like to thank you for your comment and apologize if we did not succeed to satisfy you during your stay. I am sorry that we were not successful to make your stay as enjoyable as we succeeded with so many of our dear customers.

I would also like to thank you for your nice comments about the restaurant and the staff of the service.

May you allow me to give you my direct contact to be able to change that negative opinion you have of us and try to make if you wish, a second stay memorable on all levels.

I would hate to see you stay with this idea of us, i truly believe i can make it for you and enjoyable stay and you would find the reason why we are liked by so many of our customers.

my mail is jeanphilippe.ferrini@marina-elgouna.com

Please think about it, and if you decide to give us a second chance, i promise you you won't regret it.

Hoping to hear from you soon.

Thank you
