El Gouna is a purpose built holiday resort which is sealed to the general Egyptian public. It is immaculately clean. The resort is quite large with numerous hotels villas many restaurants and bars and even a golf course.
The Arena Inn is a beautiful small hotel with a wonderful ambiance with its own pool and lagoon. The rooms are clean with comfy beds and a really nice shower room, just what you would want and expect from a 3* hotel. The reason sleep quality is only 3 is beacuse the air con was quite loud.
Breakfast was continental plus with pretty much everything you would want and was enjoyed overlooking the lagoon.
The location of the hotel is a dream with the beach and central food and drink area a short walk or even rope pulley bridge over lagoon away.
I will add it is worth taking the two day trip to Luxor which I must simply say is amazing to see the sights including the valleys of the Kings, Queens, temples etc a truly once in a lifetime experience.
This really is a hotel worth staying at.
Oh and always do the Dolphine tour with the charming gent by the pool!More
