It was my first stay in Abou Tig Marina and I'm very glad I chose Captain's Inn, Staff were so friendly made me feel welcome and were so helpful in everything I felt like home, They gave me free access to moods beach and that was reallly amazing. My room was clean and very comfortable and AC works well. Food was good with amazing view over the marina. The fact that hotel is in the heart of Marina is amazing it's near everything and has a beautiful charming views of Abou Tig Marina. It's good value for money and I enjoyed my stay at Captain's Inn and absolutely I would come again.

Room Tip: If you are staying on half board basics take advantage of the dinning around option. Dinning around...

I can't review the hotel as I haven't stayed there.

However I can review the restaurant as I have eaten there a few times over the years.

The location is probably one of the best in El Gouna. Right at the heart of the marina.
You can sit out nearly at the waters edge if it isn't too busy.

However the food is wonderful. I have tried different foods there but the Hot Plate Steak is to die for.
My favourite Steak.

Great place for a romantic meal.

See you soon

I stayed for two nights, it was a great experience. The staff is really helpful and decent. The fact that the hotel gives you free access to Moods beach is really awesome.
I tried their massage and it was an ultimate relaxation. After all, I enjoyed my stay and it was worth it to stay in captain's inn for its great location too.

For a first timer in EL-Gouna, this was a good experience starter for me, and the recommendation by the friend who organized the trip was right on the spot, as we were a large group, and some wanted the marina view and others didn’t bother for it (the marina view is obviously a little costlier but it is understandable)
Being at the head of the marina, it’s a central place for every where you want to go, and the upside is that it has beach privileges.
The front desk guy was helpful, as soon as we arrived he checked us in, he explained the breakfast timing and gave us the beach towel card and the entrance to the moods beach club card.
It’s a big hotel, although it doesn’t show from outside, so mind to know where your room is, though they are efficient for posting the room numbers direction all over the place so you won’t get lost. The breakfast time is admirably extended as it is from 7 to 11 AM, so you can get an early breakfast if you’re going out early or if you’re a late bloomer you can still catch it.
The breakfast is an open buffet, standard intercontinental and Egyptian, and you can have it either indoor or outside on the marina if you like the sun and having breakfast with a view.
The rooms are clean and spacious, for the money value they are quiet good, with a spacious bed (for the single that I had), and the bathroom comes with a pre-installed hair dryer although the bathtub (not quite a tub!!) is a small one.
The best thing is you can have a late checkout till 6:30 PM (normal check out is at 12:00 PM, but mind that you must tell them in advanced) with a small charge, as it would be considered as a day use, so you can still go to the beach till noon and have lunch before leaving Gouna.
All in all, an excellent hotel for all its value and I would recommend it whether you’re traveling as a couple or a group.

Nice and cozy hotel situated in an excellent location, bang in the middle of all the restaurants and bars in the Marina area, and a few meters away from the beach; it is also very reasonably priced, and hotel staff are very professional, responsive and fast. I would go back there any day.
