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 …
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 ...
... 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 ...
... side resort of Hurghada. I felt as though I had entered another country - the wide paved streets were immaculate - flowers and palm trees were everywhere shops, restaurants and large seaside resorts were all in a row as far as one could see. I walked around - tried to sneak past the street vendors - was cornered by one - Mohammed - and promised him that I would return in a few hours to look in his shop. It was very ...
... the Red Sea, but decided not to. We wanted to relax a bit. The
beach here was not located near the hotel, so that was a shame. It has been warm every day since we arrive in Egypt, but our day off to relax was a bit moody and there were clouds out. These days in Hurghada were a bit of a shame in terms of both in and out of the hotel. We had some quiet moments sitting by the cold pool while listening to music and walking ...

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.
