Three Corners Rihana Resort
Travel Blogs from El Gouna
Today I travelled from Luxor for a three night stay at the beautiful Three Corners Rihans Resort on the coast of the Red Sea in a place called El Gouna which is about 30 km from Hurghada, the larger city. Both have recently seen a lot of expensive buildings go up, many owned by rich Europeans as it is cheaper to vacation or retire here than in …
... our first overlanding experience and can’t recommend it highly enough to anyone considering Africa as their next vacation. Next we are off to spend some time diving and relaxing at the Red Sea town of Dahab before continuing on with our travels. In three weeks you’ll be able to see us at Petra, hanging out with the Bedouins, and floating in the Dead Sea, stay tuned.

... in it when fully occupied and there were no more than 50 people when we were here. I have been in Egypt for over a week now and I have learned not to expect much from accommodation. I was happy just to get
away from the people. We were hoping for a bit more as far food, accommodation and service, but the current Egypt hospitality standards and attitude are not good enough. We had the opportunity here to do some ...
... 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.

The next morning we were heading out for a snorkelling expedition. With us were Tony, Matthew and Javier, from our tour group, who were doing diving. Tony and Matthew can't swim but seemed extremely optimistic about diving. Dan was braced to do some life-saving should it be required. We were driven out to the tourist area and ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Three Corners Rihana Resort El Gouna
I went to El Gouna for a package holiday with my best friend. I had never been to Egypt before but was eagerly waiting to see a glimpse of Egypt's history and enjoy a lots of sunsine and good arabic food. And that's what we got!
My fiance and I have just returned from a two week stay at the rihana inn, having never been to egypt before or been all inclusive before we really had no expectations of either,but after the holiday we decided we would definatley be returning to egypt. We booked through direct holidays two weeks before departure.
Bon hôtel, super service
Moi, mon compagnon et 3 enfants revenons à peine du 3 Corners Rihana Resort à El Gouna. Nous y étions quand il y a eu les attentats à Sharm El Sheik.
L'hôtel est adorable, le personnel est super. La nourriture est à peu près correcte. Le temps était magnifique. Mais ce n'est pas un endroit où aller si vous ne parlez pas allemand couramment. Toutes les activités, de jour comme de nuit, s'adressaient clairement aux Allemands.
just returned on Friday from a week at the Rihanna Inn. it was a last minute booking, we were going to go with Airtours who use the main hotel described as 4 star, however we went with Direct Holidays who used the Inn and describe it as 3 star, so saved £100 per person yet still had the all inclusive deal, had use of all the resort facilities and ate in the same restaurants.
Nice place, great staff
Myself, partner and 3 kids have just returned from the 3 Corner Resort, Rihana, El Gouna. We were there when the bombs went off in Sharm El Sheik. the hotel is lovely, the staff are fantastic. the food is okayish. the weather was terrific. Not the sort of place to go unless you speak fluent German. All day and night time activities were definitley geared towards the Germans.
Awfull food, very loud during the day
The weather was nice. The all-included was horrible, the first night we arrived at 9.00 and the only thing we could get was a dry sandwich with a warm coke. It was not possible to get a glass of wine or a regular meal. The salades that were served during the lunch, were the same we got in the evening AND the day after, we also could not indentifie the meat. The noise at the pool was very irritating, animation 24-7
We returned yesterday (28/5/05) after a wonderful 2 weeks in El Gouna, 2 weeks of cloudless skies and burning sun. we stayed at the Three Corners Ryhana Resort which was spotlessly clean, service was excellent, food was various with many choices for the fussy, Hotel was as stated in the brochure and staff were very friendly to the English. There were a lot of Germans but on the whole they were no problem the towel brigade is not allowed here and sunbeds were never full. the 3 pools and beach spread people out so it is not too crowded. The town has had many improvements from last year and the building sites do not detract from it's beauty. The facilities including the golf course are on a par with any where on the continent and is only another 2 hours flight to guaranteed wall to wall sunshine. We look forward to returning there in the future.
Stay at El Gouna, rather than Hurghada
We are just back from our 5th visit to El Gouna and stayed at the Three Corners Rihana Resort hotel every time.
El Gouna is wonderful, safe, clean, and great diving.
It is an artificial village but the setting is 100% Egypt with wonderfull views to the mountains, great hotels and peacefull beaches.
Rihana Resort offers a very good value for money and quiet setting. Food is very good and changes every day. You can eat the salads without getting sick as they use only bottled water in their kitchens.
The weather is always great : sun sun & sun. In January you will have more wind and at night it cools down a bit.
We just returned from a week at the Rihana Inn/Resort and in general had a good time. The staff is very friendly, helpful and cheerful. The beach is beautiful and quiet. The mealtimes are busy at the restaurant where the All Inclusive meals are served, but most of the time the lines were for fries and spaghetti. The pools were very nice except for one very big problem-the constant noise and activity. There is a lot of screaming and activity in German. I tried the " quiet pool " on day, and apparently loud aerobics in German is considered part of the quiet atmosphere. A german group called "1 , 2 FLY" is constantly busy with extremely loud "animation" in the form of excited screaming in German and extremely loud music that is played until they go home. I complained about this to the management a number of days in a row and was told that it was for my own entertainment. I do not speak German or enjoy very loud music, but if you do, this is certainly the place to be.
