... with the usual bunch of insomnia masochists. We attended 3 lectures this morning. The first was by the aviation lecturer Ian Smith on Aden and South Arabia. He had worked in the area as a flight engineer in the years preceding the British withdrawal in 1967 and was able to show us photographs taken at that time of some of the places we had visited. Of particular interest was Dubai where 40 years ago there was very little. The British left Aden after what some describe as the ...
... shirt and a bandana to put over my face with sunglasses and shoes. Particles from the desert go everywhere, and it can be a real mess. It was very scenic riding around the area. The tour headed for a local village, which was an extended 30 minutes from our base. The village can only be reached via quad bikes, motorcycles and animals. Their is no road leading to ...
... we spent the whole day sun-bathing at Zeytuna beach which is only 15 minutes walk or free shuttle bus from the hotel. It is an amazing beach with soft sand and crystal waters knee deep out for 500 meters or more. Though the temperature is too cold to swim, the walk around the beach area is fantastic.
You could travel around the town by tuk tuk which costs only 5LE/trip. During the night, we could ...
Our snorkeling tour started at 8:15a.m., we were transferred to the port for the our big boat. After collecting our masks and fins, we joined our group size of about 20. Most of the tourists can speak Arabic. Only 4 of us, two Chinese, 1 UK, 1 German speak English. Our tour guide is very professional which he made sure everyone is happy with the tour. First, we landed on the Giftun / paradise Island, beautiful crystal water and golden sand. ...
... I like to cook and so we went in an Egyptian spice shop. The shop keeper is so enthusiastic in explaining every spice in his shop. He also told us the recent politics issue they had in their country and the reason why they don’t like America. They wanted to control their own country by themselves. The tourism industry is getting worse by the news. It is safe to travel ...

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.
