Three Corners Ocean View Hotel
Travel Blogs from El Gouna
Not much to blog today except that I managed to find the Singapore GP
on the TV. Unfortunately on a German station but at least I managed to
watch it at least.
Can't remember if I mentioned on the diving days I spotted an Osprey
nest on one of the marina entrance marker bouys. On the second day
both Ospreys were …
Our 20th wedding anniversary today which started with some shopping
and then the hotel offered us a free meal tonight mainly because of
the problems at dinner last night but also because of our anniversary.
Rest of the day is quiet with a relax by the pool this afternoon
because it is has been really hot today and it helped …
Meryl's Birthday and we spent the day on the dive clubs boat going out
to Dolphin Point to do snorkelling. It was pretty good to see the fish
again like yesterday plus we got to see a few dolphins as well.
Got back to the hotel around 5pm and guess what? Another cake has
arrived! Woo hoo!
Going for dinner tonight on the side of the marina with a show as well.
Wow and wow again, that diving lark was spectacular. I saw all sorts
of tropical fish including scorpian and lion, rays and moray eels, BIG
moray eels. Plus I got to swim with Nemo, a couple of clown fish came
up and said 'hi' it was truly amazing.
Had a Dutch instructor called Zietza who was just as crazy as his name
Diving in the pool this morning was fantastic. Although I was a little
paniky at first I managed to do the basic skills like clearing water
from the visor and taking the regulator out under water without too
much of a problem. Was well impressed by having 8 wieghts around me
cause I thought I was quite heavy enough on my own, my …

Historical Traveler Reviews Three Corners Ocean View Hotel El Gouna
Just returned from a two week stay at the Ocean View and have no complaints.
El Gouna is not a fair representation of the real Eygpt. Rep described El Gouna as living in a bubble. Very true!
Stayed at TTC Ocean View for 2 weeks and am already wondering when we can return. The overwhelming thing about this hotel is it's stunning location. With views over the Abu Tig Marina to the left, the Red sea and lagoons ahead and to the right, you could never get tired of looking. As with many hotels, Ocean View does not look that impressive from the outside but as soon as you step inside you realise that it has a lot to offer.
Just back from two weeks at the Ocean View and was really impressed by the quality of the hotel services and their excellent staff.
Ein qualitativ hochwertiges Hotel in recht windiger Lage. Das Hotel steht unter belgischer Führung. Das El Gouna ist ein durchkonzepiertes Ressort, mitten im Nichts errichtet, erwarten Sie also nicht in Gehweite der Stadt zu wohnen. Es gibt nämlich keine Stadt, nur einen kleinen Yachthafen mit Läden und kleinen Restaurants. El Gouna ist noch nicht fertiggestellt, allerdings gibt es keinerlei Bauarbeiten in der Nähe des Hotels. Das Hotel war außerordentlich sauber und man hatte einen tollen Ausblick über das Rote Meer und auf den Abu Tig Yachthafen. Manchmal war es etwas schwierig während der Mahlzeiten ein Getränk zu bekommen, obwohl wir AI gebucht hatten.In einem Speisesaal, in dem ungefähr 100 Menschen passen, gab es nur 12 Nichtraucherplätze, die auch noch nah an der Küche lagen. Das Essen war sehr gut und es gab eine gute Auswahl - und zwar jede Nacht - also erkennt man nach einiger Zeit, dass die Auswahl dann doch nicht so groß ist. Nicht für Kinder geeignet, da Sie nicht am Strand schwimmen können und der Pool viel zu tief ist. Die Pools waren sehr sauber mit ordentlichen Sonnenliegen etc. ausgestattet. Sehr gemischtes Klientel wie z. B Belgier, Deutsche, Schweden, Holländer und Engländer. Man kann einen Ein oder Zweitagesausflug vom Hotel aus nach Kairo buchen. Die Fahrt mit dem Bus ist zwar sehr anstrengend , aber trotzdem empfehlenswert
Man hatte mir den Urlaub im Three Corners Ocean View als Überraschung zum Geburtstag geschenkt. Die Angestellten haben mir dann noch an meinem Geburtstag einen Kuchen gebacken, Blumen und eine Karte auf mein Zimmer gebracht und für mich getanzt und Happy Birthday gesungen (damals war das etwas peinlich, aber ist trotzdem eine schöne Erinnerung!). Die Putzfrau hatte die Handtücher immer zu einem Krokodil gefaltet - das müssen Sie gesehen haben. Das Essen war gut und ich bin mir sicher, dass jeder etwas gefunden hatte, was er mag. Die Angestellten waren so freundlich und hilfsbereit und konnten sich nie genug um einen bemühen. Sie haben meinen Geburtstag wirklich zu etwas Besonderem gemacht und ich würde nicht zögern, wieder dorthin zu fahren oder es weiter zu empfehlen. Gehen Sie in Moods Bar am Ende des Yachthafens, was für ein toller Ort (und der Gintonic ist wirklich gut).
got back on the 20th of may and can i say wot a fantastic hoilday. the thomas cook rep was brill. The hotel three corners was lovely the place was spotless and the staff worked really hard, the cleaners did a wonderfull job, the marine is a lovely place and there is some out of this world boats that you wouldnt see in england, i have read a review which didnt rate this holiday i strongly disagree! down town is a lovely place to go too, the bus ride is a bit bumpy but so are the speed bumps in england, the weather was hot but windy which was a blessing some days, we meet some lovely people, if you like snorkeling i advise you to go on a trip from the beach not the hotel its cheaper, if you are all inclusive you can eat out at two diffrent hotels for a small charge, if you go to the beach bar beware you have to pay for your beer alot of people complained about this, in the bar at the hotel you can only get halves, a bottle of beer on the marina it costs 2 english pounds, the beely dancing around the pool is funny they try to get up as many people to do as they can i didnt do it to busy sunbathing. If you want a quiet relaxing holiday this is the place for you.
High quality hotel in a very windy location. The hotel is owned and run by Belgians. El Gouna is a concept resort built in the middle of nowhere, so don't expect to walk into town - there is no town just a small marina with shops and decent resturants. El Gouna is unfinished but there are no building works near this hotel and nowhere to start any. The hotel was exceptionally clean. Lovely view out over the Red Sea and into the Abu Tig marina. It was sometimes difficult to get a drink at mealtimes despite being "all-inclusive". In a dining room that seats over 100 there are only 12 seats that are non-smoking and these are close to where food is served. Good quality food and lots of choice - every night - so you end up feeling as though the choice is more limted than it is. Not a good hotel for children as the beach is unsuitable and the pools are far too deep. Clean pools with well maintained sunbeds etc. Very mixed residents including Belgian, German, French, Dutch, Swedish, English (south and north!). You can take a one or two day trip to Cairo from this hotel which is a long overnight journey by coach, quite an adventure but very worthwhile.
I was taken to Three Corners Ocean View as a surprise birthday present and had a fantastic time. The staff there made my actual birthday really special by making me a birthday cake, putting flowers and a card in the room, singing happy birthday and dancing (embarassing at the time, but a great memory!) plus the 'maid' making an alligator out of towels - you had to see it. The hotel itself was basic but really clean and in a fantastic location. The food was good and I am sure everybody could find something they liked. The staff were something else, they were really helpful and friendly and could not do enough for us. They certainly helped to make my birthday really special and I would not hesitate to go back there or recommend it.
I stayed at the Ocean View in August 2005 for a week. The hotel is located in the most beautiful spot in Gouna with both views out to the open sea, the man made lagoons and the Abu Tig Marina. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were very neat and spacious and had all the basics plus a nice balcony. Although we had a half board arrangement we only took breakfast at the hotel and chose to have lunch and dinner at other restaurants around Gouna (there are some great ones on the Marina and in the downtown area). The breakfasts were nice and had a large selection but not much variety from day to day. The pool and spa in the new extension are very nice and I heard that the massages were really good. The location of this hotel and its views are what make it stand out- other than that it is a very bsaic 4 star hotel. I recommend it if you are not looking for luxury.
