Movenpick Resort & Spa El Gouna
Ranked #2 of 18 Hotels in El Gouna
Reviewed 31 August 2011

Just wanted to update a previous review about the Moevenpick. We decided last year that, while we love the place, we probably wouldn't go back for a while as that was our third visit in 24 months. However, when starting to discuss ideas for winter sun holiday this year we looked at other options (Maldives, Seychelles etc) but kept coming back, in our thinking, to El Gouna and, specifically, Moevenpick.
So yes you can argue the "is it 5 star or good 4 star" till the cows come home, but the bottom line is this: we have had three stays here in a short period. Any issues we have had are dealt with quickly and efficiently. The staff are, without doubt, it's greatest asset, and the rooms are large, confortable, and kept very clean. Couple that with the choice of pools, beaches and restaurants and its easy access to downtown El Gouna, which I love, and it's a no brainer as to where we're now off for our winter break. It's familiar, we're probably not being adventurous, but we know we will have a lovely, relaxed, and very comfortable time and frankly, I can't wait to get back there. I've never been anywhere four times in less than three years, but with El Gouna Moevenpick it's a bit like going home.
If only a decent airline flew to Hurghada, I don't think I'd go anywhere else!

We have really enjoyed our stays here. The reef is out a bit, but it's very shallow all the way. The reef has damage, but appears to be recovering. Nice, easy snorkeling. Pools are nice too. Restaurants are all excellent and the breakfast has a great variety. Great place.

This is my second time in this wonderful hotel....Well, everything is amazing there. The best of all is the hotel manager...He is really a perfect one. Once he knew that we were a second time guests, he send us a fruit basket with a very nice welcoming letter. This made my family happy coz they felt they are being remembered and welcomed. The hotel is very clean. The staff is friendly. The food is very good.
I would like to thank all of them and the best way is through this valuable trusted site.
Thank you very much. You really renew my life. I returned back to work full of happiness and comfort.
I honestly advice all to go there and see what words don't really express.
Good luck

The hotel is excellent. The rooms are clean, spacious, modern, comfortable, everything you wish for! What you expect from 5 star, because most 5 star hotels in Egypt are just 4 or less.
The food was fantastic. No worries about food poisoning. The sea is great but not so many fish to see. But furthermore we had a great time!

We have been to Egypt/Red Sea many times but this last trip to Mövenpick Resort was the best by far. The service is perfect and so were the rooms. The brekfast/dinnerbuffe was delicius and the staff so nice. The kids loved it as well with a lot of fun with animationteam. We also used the Emperor divecenter on the resort and were very pleased with them and we got to swim with dolphins :)

As I was traveling on my own just a few weeks after the Egyptian uprising, I was concerned about my safety but also to find myself very isolated in a big resort. Hence, I contacted the hotel for information and support prior to my departure.
I was extremely impressed by the service I received: useful guidance with regards to best possible room location to suit my needs (i.e. positioned inbetween the diving centre and the main body of the hotel) and even a free room upgrade.
Once at the resort, the good feeling continued and I was able to enjoy a great diving holiday with a standard of accomodation / food / service which fully met my expectations.

I'm a big fan of Moevenpick... and once again it delivered!

PS: I'm planning to go back in September or October...

Room Tip: Group 3 or 5 if you are a diver and wish to stay in the middle between the reception/restaurant and...
