We just returned from a week's stay at Captain's Inn. We are a family with 2 teenagers and reserved 2 marina view rooms (122+124) with balconies which were great - lots of fun to watch what was happening outside and the view is beautiful morning and night.
All the staff at the hotel were WONDERFUL - every single person was extremely friendly and helpful to us with every request! This was really appreciated - thank you!!
The hotel itself is nice and in a great location - close to everything you need.
Breakfasts were incredible and the restaurant offers a great menu. (the steaks were to die for!)
We enjoyed coming back to our rooms to find on our beds towels shaped as swans, scarves as flowers, etc. This personal touch was nice and the creative cleaner was a happy, friendly face to see every day.
The only negative thing was the NOISE, although it was not the hotel's fault. New Year's week is a major Egyptian holiday period so El Gouna was packed with Egyptians. While it was nice to feel we were not in a totally "artificial" resort, the outdoor terrace of the nightclub just across the water from the hotel partied HARD EVERY NIGHT from 12-3 AM! The music was so loud that the windows of our rooms vibrated and needless to say made it difficult to sleep.
However, after explaining to reception they offered to switch one of our rooms to a garden view asap (we chose to keep the other room), a solution with which we were satisfied. They explained that most guests at the hotel are returning Egyptians and know what goes along with Marina View Rooms during this time... I would suggest that the hotel warns "other"customers when bookings are made for these rooms during this busy party period.
On a smaller detail, the shower in the garden view room (109) was very small!
Outside of this, I would definitely recommend this hotel.
Thank you for a wonderful stay!!
