The less said about the coach journey the better!! Four hours at night on a remote (ish) Egyptian road is not for the faint hearted. Dodgy overtaking, driving on the wrong side of the road and that game where you try to get as close to the vehicle in front as possible at high speed, to name but a few. Oh, did I mention all our dive gear tied to the roof with a piece of string? Well, we and our kit got to our destination in one piece, although nerves a little bit ...
... and of course copious amounts of shisha pipes & tobacco. The market was lovely, probably one of our favorite markets, unfortunately the shopkeepers managed to take away some of our enjoyment. Every shopkeeper yelled at us that his store would be no hassle and on the rare occasion we did go into stores, prices were very, very inflated. With a lot of bargaining we could get close to local prices, but quite often ...
... the sun beating down but once in the shade the breeze was perfect. I made my way down to the Marriott - passed through security tighter than an airport and made my way to the beach - the water was absolutely stunning - and I can understand why so many tourists (mainly Europeans) would flock here for sun and relaxation. Noticing many dormant cranes and unfinished (yet clean looking) buildings/projects - I again ...
... complex chatting. These moments were much needed in Egypt to get our heads straight and absorb what we have seen in the last week. I have never seen so much sites and history in all my travel days as I have seen in the last week and you don't really have time to think about everything, but this kind of gave us some time to reflect on it and write about it. Hopefully the next stop in Sharm El Sheikh will be a lot better than here. ...
... than a little freaked out that when we would all swim off in different directions… after our "guided snorkel" we had a little free time, and the inner child in us had us jumping, bombing and flipping off the boat. In the afternoon we were back on the Bus, heading to Luxor for the night.

Historical Traveler Reviews Panorama Bungalows Resort El Gouna
This is such a nice place, it's a shame that it's let down by such silly little things! The accomodation was very basic, but clean, we had a lovely little bungalow overlooking the lagoon, and it was very reasonably priced. The food however, was not up to much at all, it was the same every night, and not too well cooked, me and my other half had bad stomachs quite a lot!
Just returned from a weeks last minute break to Panorama Bungalows.
This was the first time we have visited Egypt, we picked Pamorama , El Gouna as it looked a relativley peaceful resort.
We had a bungalow over the lagoon at this hotel. The room was quite OK, clean, tidy but not luxurious, but very acceptable. The other rooms are in the main, low building.
my husband and I stayed at this hotel for a fortnight with our 11month baby. initially we were placed in bungalow by the pool over the lagoon and facing downtown, which was noisy at night and were moved quite happily the next day into the water bungalows on the sea. WE stayed from 2nd dec until the 16th and it was not very busy but nice.
This is the best hotel I have stayed in, in Egypt (9 visits), but it is not all good.
We travelled as a family of 4 on all inclusive for one week at October half term and had a good time at this hotel. We were in the main hotel and had very spacious rooms with clean well kept furniture and furnishings and a very large balcony overlooking the lagoon. There was a fridge in the rooms but you had to pay for water and drinks if you wanted it filled - not worth it as you could cross the lagoon in the curtesy boat and buy everything you needed at the supermarket for a fraction of the price.
Having just returned from the Panorama Bungalow Resort in El Gouna I can honestly say I miss it! Despite the food being the same almost every night (monday- mexican chicken and mexican beef, tuesday- oriental chicken and oriental beef, wednesday- american chicken and american beef.. you get the picture) I cannot find fault in the hotel at all.
we have just returned from a holiday in the panorama bungalows resort el gouna. the hotel is clean and tidy and the rooms large, we had a few problems but the staff we quick to fix the problems. we were all inclusive the food was wlee cooked but there was no choice. every time time was the same the dish was the same with a different name. every meal time it was chicken, beef, potatoe in different forms, salad and the same cakes for sweet every day, we had to eat out. 99% of the staff were very nice and attentive but there was 1% who made it plain not enough tip or you were not quick enough with a tip and you were totally ignored. there is no bottled water in the rooms so you have to buy all water except with meals and in a glass from the bar. the only other thing was the amount of russians they over run the place and made other holiday makers very uneasy, the were rude abusive and antics in the pool was not accepable in a family hotel. my advise is to try and get a cheap deal to this hotel and accept you have to eat out 50% of the time. and yes i would go back but would be better prepared.
