We have visited El Gouna 7 times but this was the first time at the Dawar and we loved it - it's comfortable and friendly and the staff we were all lovely. We stayed B & B and the breakfast buffet had a good variety and also offered omelettes, pancakes and waffles cooked to order. We only ate dinner in one evening, a Lebanese buffet, great value at about £11. The Dawar is an easy walk to all the restaurants in downtown El Gouna and to the bus stop for the making the short trip to the marina for more dining choices (unlimited bus trips cost approx. £2 for the week)
The pool is quite small but was heated in March when we were there. It's also pleasant swimming in the lagoon.
I totally agree with Maxwell324 and think Mohammed N must have stayed in a different hotel!
