Moevenpick Resort & Spa El Gouna
Travel Blogs from El Gouna
Winter in the UK is by and large a pretty desolate mess - cold and miserable without even the joy of crispy snow to break the monotony. Unless it's February, in which case we'll have blizzard conditions that defeat the best Highway Department planners and leave the roads, railways and airports in chaos in less than 24 hours. This grey and damp …
... formed lake formed by the dam. The Philae temple is a standard freestanding temple, while Abu Simbel is a monolithic temple carved out of a mountain, making the move much harder. It is pretty unbelievable when you are standing in these temples that they had been moved!
In the city of Aswan itself, we enjoyed our first Egyptian souk (market). The souk was full of scarves, clothing, spices, fruits and ...
Hurghada was on the way to Sharm El Sheikh from Luxor. It is supposed to be some nice resort town that actually turned out a bit disastrous. We wanted to come here and get away from the Egyptian people and to relax on a beach. Today, Hurghada seem to be one big building site. There are many new hotels going up. Many of them looked abandoned and there were not many people in them. We had a hotel that probably would have fit ...
We had the option of happy hour extending far in to the wee hours of the morning or getting up early to go snorkelling in the Red Sea. We chose the latter, and it was AMAZING! The water was crystal clear… we had a guide take us and three awesome Aussies out for a look around… The ...
We departed Luxor in our mini van for our longest car journey - 5 hours - to the resort town of Hurghada. Dan and I spent out time watching the final episodes of The Killing II least not to prevent me from watching the terrifying driving. I figured it was better to go into that head-on collision with blissful ignorance. We stopped at an Egyptian equivalent of Welcome Break but much smaller. When buying some coffee, the shopkeeper took a shine to me offering me free ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Moevenpick Resort & Spa El Gouna
We did a lot of research before we chose Movenpick hotel in El Gouna and it exceeded our expectations.
My Partner and I stayed at the Movenpick at the end of November to begining of December and had a lovely time.
More like a little city than a hotel
It was mid november 2005 and we were on an Egyptian sightseeing tour, the pyramids, nile, lots of amazingly old temples, then we were put on a bus to Hurghada for a three night stay at a movenpick resort in a new development called El Gouna, about 30 mins north of Hurghada on the red sea.
Well what a breath of fresh air! the whole place is brand new and luxury plus. there's 4 pools, restaurants all over and all water sports even glass bottomed boats to view the coral. Five minutes away is a little village with shops, cafes, bars and a casino. Also a golf course nearby.Inside the hotel also has a nightly live show in it's outdoor stage theatre set in a courtyard. A great place to take a break from all the hustle and bustle of city life
Just stayed at the Movenpick for a week whilst we were diving with Dive Connection(top dive company) in El Gouna. We had the basic level room which was faultless, great view of the lagoon, beautiful gardens and sea view too !
My partner (21 years old) and I (18 years old) went to the Movenpick in July, it has to be said it is the most fantastic hotel I have ever stayed in.
Hi we have just returned yesterday from staying in El Gouna at the Moevenpick. I have 3 children 10 8 and 6 and stayed in a superior room which was fantastic. My Husband and I shared the double bed and the children shared the other bed and a camp bed. The hotel is situated on a beach surrounded by water inlets. The Kids club was great suitable for my kids they did a show disco most nights camel rides lots of art and crafts etc and all free.DO NOT have Dinner there only Breakfast as it is very expensive for the meals .You must eat out we spent about £40.00 in total each night which includes a bottle of wine £12.00 and soft drinks 3 adults and 3 children.
I've never posted on trip adviser before, but have now used it to select my last two accomodations/ Both choices have proved so good that I feel it only fair to give some feedback.
The people who reviewed this hotel badly are unjust to do so. Yes its a big place and thats why you have to walk a little further to get places but the scenery is beautiful so if you cant enjoy that when your walking around, maybe you should try bognor next time!!!
Just returned from movenpick, with my wife and we were very dissapointed with the Hotel, we would give it a rating of 3star+. great friendly service- some daytime activities-but if you like evening entertainment "go elsewhere" it took us 7 mins to get to reception, ...
Where can I start? I'm a manager in a 4* hotel in England so I'm not surprisingly very difficult to please, but I really couldn't fault the Moevenpick. My boyfriend and I stayed for a week early July and had the most relaxing holiday ever! The hotel appeared deserted as it is so large and spread out, even when full it never feels over crowded. No matter what time you crawl out of bed there was always a deserted stretch of the beach and sun loungers galore to choose from. Even at midday on the beach it felt like your own desert island. The sea is perfect for children as it is shallow for miles and beautifully warm. There were four pools, the main one used mostly by children with football and netball posts. There are swim up bars in each pool. The hotel even has a health spa. Definately venture out to the spa which is right at one end of the resort. It's about a ten minute walk but definately worth it as their pool was deserted, not a soul in sight! All of the restaurants were fantastic. At breakfast you're spoilt for choice with a huge buffet that keeps you going until evening! Make sure you try the Thai and Seafood restaurants, and the pizzas at the main pool bar are to die for. One not to miss is their own ice cream shop, open until 11pm and surprisingly reasonable for gourmet swiss ice-cream. Each evening the hotel puts on entertainment, dancers and singers at the main Piazza, and even a nightly children's disco, all free of charge.
