Dear Sherief_Bdr

We were delighted to read that you had very much enjoyed your honeymoon at our resort and that you think our Hotel is definitely the best in El Gouna.

We have already passed on your thanks to our team members and they all join us in hoping that it will not be too long before we can welcome you back again - perhaps for your 1st Wedding Anniversary and a romantic dinner at El Sayadin Restaurant overlooking the sea.

The hotel has a very nice position in El Gouna means, that has acces direct to the Red Sea, The accomodation was nice, but realy is not a 5 star hotel, may be 4*. The room was ok, but the furniture is old and has to be changed.
The food was excelent. Services good enough.
it is a place for the people want to relax, if you want night life things like this don't go.

Dear Candin
Thank you for having taken the time and trouble to give us your impressions and we were pleased to read that you had very much enjoyed our food and services.

We were sorry to read that you had booked one of our rooms that has not yet been renovated - so far we have renovated 365 rooms as part of our 3 year renovations programme and the remaining rooms are scheduled to be completed by the 2nd half of 2012.

All our team hope that we can welcome you back again in the not too distant future and, once you have made your reservation in the normal way, please write to us so that we can be sure to arrange for you to have a renovated Leisure room.

Once again thank you for your feedback as this is much appreciated.

The hotel is completely low level spread out over a vast area which is inter-connected by lush gardens and well lit pathways. Although sometimes the directions are not completely and obviously visible, it's virtually impossible to get lost.

The hygiene standards are extremely high which is a must for Egypt and someone is either cleaning the public areas, or tending the gardens to ensure the hotel always looks pristine and there is no rubbish littering the place. Nothing is ever too much trouble for most members of staff in any area of this hotel, they are courteous and friendly, but without being over the top. I rarely had a feeling that they were being especially nice to receive a tip!

Both the Spa and Lagoon pool bars are little areas of paradise with well managed staff and plenty to offer. The Il Limone restaurant offers a comprehensive lunchtime snack menu and an exciting a la carte menu in the evening. Likewise, the El Sayaden restaurant provides not only fish on their menu, but probably one of the best steaks I have ever tasted. I have a gluten intolerance and once I had advised this I was amazed to find my own bread served at all meals with the option to ask for pancakes, waffles and muffins at breakfast!

The room I stayed in had been recently refurbished to a very high standard. It was pleasing to receive fruit and biscuit plate from the guest relations department. The view from the terrace over the Oasis pool and the sea was spectacular. It was good to sit and watch the guys going about their business of cleaning the pool area every morning and evening and watching the kite surfers in the sea. There was a large flat screen TV in the room and according to the information provided, a comprehensive list of channels to watch. I however, don't go on holiday to watch TV!

I am completely biased towards this hotel and all it has to offer. I have been a regular visitor to Egypt for the last 12 years; I have stayed in some hotels that look spectacular from the outside, but once inside you become trapped in a parallel universe that neither cares nor accepts responsibility for its inefficiencies, lack of hygiene and employs anyone remotely capable of pouring a drink. The Moevenpick is not one of these! The management here have obviously got it right, they work together as a team to ensure the highest of standards in all areas of the hotel. I can't wait to go back again!

We stayed for a week at the movenpick in May 2011 and booked through Thomas Cook - I have to praise our rep at the hotel (LYNN- so lovely, helpful) It was just my husband and myself for a a very rare weeks holiday without the children as it was our 10 years wedding anniversary. Firstly, and most importataly, I must stress that Egypt (El Gouna in particular) there is not problems/trouble etc.. following the uprise back at the start of the year. We actually felt safer there than here in the uk and often strolled back from Downtown at 11.30pm at night following a great evening at the fantastic restaurants, bars and shows that were on there. We also used the tuk-tuk's (or took-took's) to go to the marina which again is a fab evening out.

The Hotel was everything we expected. We were in room 6204 which was gorgeous (mood lighting, fab sea view) It was one of the refurbished rooms which we paid a very small suplement for and was well worth it (I advise to email the hotel a couple of days before you go to secure one if you require) The bed was one of the most comfortable beds I have ever stayed in (wanted to bring it home with me)

The hotel staff could not do enough for you and were so so friendly and helpful (the most smiley, happiest, nicest people you could meet) In the day we loved the spa pool more than the main pool as we just wanted to completely chill out and that is exactly what we did. The main pool is great too if you prefer it a little more lively. We enjoyed watching the kite boarding which looked a real laugh but as my husband has a bad back we didnt do. We were on a B&B board basis and it suited us as we like to venture out and about and there are some fab restaurants. Downtown - upstairs, downs stairs, The White Elephant (thai) and also down at The Marina - The Captains Inn was our favourite. I have to say those people we spoke to on an all inclusive basis loved the hotel resaurants too.

A fab trip to go on is the day trip to Mahmya which is truly out of this world (when, and if I go to heaven then that is the kind of place I hope to go to Hee hee) it was a great day out on a boat over to the island where we were lucky enough to see dolphines on the way. Once there we relaxed and explored the island for an hour or so before going back on the boat out to the reef to snorkle (which is optional, you can stay on the island and relax if you prefer) Snorkling was so much fun !! Once back on the island we had a delicous lunch and had a couple more hours to snorkel, sunbath or explore - well worth a vist. We would most certainly vist El Gouna again and stay at the Movenpick !!! - Thankyou.

Dear freyaowen,

We were delighted to read that you had very much enjoyed your week's stay with us during May and that you really liked our newly 'reinvented' rooms with our Moevenpick bed in the middle.

Thank you for pointing out to Trip Advisor readers that El Gouna is extremely safe and secure as it seems many persons thinking of coming for the first time are under the impression that there is a lack of security which, as you so rightly wrote, is not the case at all.

Thank you for having chosen our resort for your 10th Wedding Anniversary celebrations and, in closing, all our team join us in hoping that it will not be too long before we can welcome you back again - perhaps with your children as well.

I can only recommend the Moevenpick Resort & Spa El Gouna...
Their professionalism, attention to details, care, and excellent service is way above any other hotels in the region.
Everything was perfect, including the weather...
We feel secure both in the resort and in the outskirts where the customers is put at ease and the tourist is taken care off.
Thank you, we shall return !

June 2010. Annual 10 days break which I was hoping to be relaxing and enjoyable.

The plans were simple: stay in Switzerland and enjoy the sunny weather we had had for the past 2 months, travel around and visit Switzerland and neighbouring France with the family visiting us from overseas. And celebrate my birthday.

Unfortunately, weather in Europe is always unpredictable. My 10 days off became a daily weather check with a simple outcome: rain every day...
We decided not to continue 'suffering' from the bad weather, brainstormed about locations to go... Egypt seems to be an interesting spot, maybe a bit hot and dangerous?
We called our Egyptian colleagues, highly recommending their country and who knew THE best spots for us to enjoy our holiday...

And here we go! Movenpick El Gouna! THE place to make your dreams come true: a great and well organized resort, like in the magazines pictures.

Here are the 10 reasons why I highly recommend you to Movenpick El Gouna!

ABOUT EL GOUNA
1. GREAT LOCATION FOR TOURISTS - village created a few years ago for tourism 'a la Disneyland' close to Hurghada. An easy way, safe and comfortable way to visit Egypt and feel at home. Much better than Hurghada.
2. QUIET VILLAGE - Few tourists, no need to queue or wait, always space available for last minute decisions. Great for families, guess singles will prefer to go to Sharm for a better nightlife.
3. GREAT TAXI SERVICE - a fixed price list shows you the prices for the most popular locations. NO need to go through the hassle of negotiating deals and feel scammed.

ABOUT THE MOVENPICK HOTEL (where shall I start???)
4. WEATHER- Get a great suntan and enjoy the temperature. Think that the 38 degrees forecasted will make it unbearable to stay outside? WRONG! Get yourself a long chair on the beach front and enjoy the wind and the sea temperature, making it sometimes even a bit chilly - can you believe it?
5. BEACH FRONT - Relax your mind and enjoy the magnificient views of the sea (my husband is from the carribean and acknowledged the breathtaking view), the kitesurfers surfing on the sea, the waiters bringing you food and drinks, etc
5. SPA - Relax your body with their spa facilities and special discounts in low season!
6. EXCELLENT SERVICE - Relax yourself and let the staff take care of you anytime you need. Room service, restaurant, swimming pool, beach front, spa. Tell them what you need and they will deliver.
7. ROOM - Make yourself comfortable in their new rooms! The hotel upgraded us to their renovated rooms with big bathrooms, seaview from the bed, sofa and terrace. A pure pleasure!
8. BREAKFAST - Enjoy great food from the beginning of the day. Local delicatessen, warm, cold, pastries, yoghurts, fresh fruits, warm eggs, help yourself and get ready for a great day!
9. OVERALL RESORT - Enjoy the resort discovery. From the Buddha Bar music in the entrance hall through the amazing view as you get out of there, get to know the resort. Want fun around the swimming pool - go to the one with activities. Want quietness aroudn the swimming pool - go to the ones devoted to relaxing yourself. Many restaurants, evening activities, excursions, spa, health club, etc etc etc.
10. BIRTHDAY - The cherry on the cake ;-) To show how much attention hotel management puts on service, their delivered a card with a birthday cake to my room on my birthday. Just because I identified my birthday on the inscription card on the 1st day. Isn't this amazing?

In a nutshell, if you're looking for relaxing holiday where you feel pampered and want to enjoy the sunny side of life, Movenpick El Gouna is your place!
