Huge big area-partly freshly renovated room service cleanliness oK-procedure in the 'all inclusive' area totally complicated (which is in the package included/not!?!)- very small all inclusive Choice (only 3 pub alcohol. Drinks!). It is very annoying, for each consumed detail ( ice, water...) to sign a receipt, which you have to wait 10 minutes again! guests mostly Europe westl (Frankr., Belgium, Holland, Switzerland) and many Egyptians. …  read hotel review

We had initially hard to find in the large resort along. Also it has surprised us, that a room change was not possible in the same category, standard. The change from our ground floor room in a higher room 270 Euro cost. The decor was the same, clearly the views better. We found a bit much money. The food was very good. In the fish restaurant was excellent. As well as the service! The pool and the sea had a lot of variety. Wind, sun, shade, peace, sport, something for everyone. read hotel review

The hotel is located directly on the red sea and on beautiful lagoons, has about 550 rooms and was to our time from different nationalities. The area was very large and well-kept with lots of flowers and palm trees. There were different pool areas and restaurants. Internet via wlan in the hotel was unfortunately very expensive one hour 6 Euro). read hotel review
  • Room
    6.0

    The rooms (we had room 7324 in cluster 7) was beautiful and large. A huge bed with thick and very comfortable mattress is in the middle of the room and the bed from a great view of the lagoon. Behind the bed is a kind of work desk, and minibar (drinks are included with all inclusive). In a corner is a sofa with 3 tables. There is also still another table as well as a large ausschwenkbaren flat screen tv with 3 or 4 german transmitters. The bathroom is also very large. In the entrance to the bathroom is located right of a large closet with built-in safe. To the left is also a closet with water heater and cups and glasses. Including are still drawers. A vanity area is also in the room with additional drawers. A mirror and a hair dryer. In the bathroom (which was in the room is, there is a large shower (with unfortunately a little too little counter space) and a large sink with lots of counter space and a large mirror and a cosmetic mirror. In the corner was the toilet. The room was very good and functional. Only a bedside table (possibly with a drawer) beside the beds we would have found better, than the strange 'stool'. On the balcony there were two rattan armchairs and a table. But all in all the room was super nice and it was also cleaned daily.

    The staff was always very friendly and some waiters and the staff at the reception could also speak german. The room cleaning was good. We had no complaints. At our request, we were on the first evening immediately but still coat-hangers were brought.

  • Gastronomy
    5.0

    There was the main restaurant with buffet and three à-la-carte restaurants: an italian restaurant, a thai restaurant and a seafood restaurant. Also there was the possibility to Dine around other hotels in El Gouna. This had one at the reception. The service by us however was not used. We were once in the restaurant limone (italienisch-mediterran) and loved it. The atmosphere was also in the main restaurant was good. In our 2. week was a large arab group at the hotel and it was in the food always very loud and a bit uncomfortable. The choice of the dishes was large (too big to go through everything) and us everything tasted good. Who at this selection didn't find anything there, your own fault. Super great, also, that the waiters always again coffee refill. Great service, in Spain for example, already long not more. A shame! To complain about is the somewhat dirty chairs in the dining room. These could be cleaned.

    We stayed at the cluster 7 in addition to the heated lagoon pool and were with the beach chairs at the pool (thick cushions), and the towel service were very content. The friendly staff put a, if you wanted, even the towels on the beach chairs. Unfortunately, it was also on the otherwise quiet pool in the 2. week because of the large group a bit busy.

  • Location
    6.0

    The hotel is located, as mentioned above, right on the beach. To the airport it was about 40 kilometer and the city center of El Gouna (Hotel Downtown) about 800 to 1000 meters. There are many restaurants and shops and snack bar, the free wi-fi access. You can in about 10 to 15 minutes to foot run. But there is a great shuttle service (every half an hour for a small fee) or you can go with the funny tuc tacs (1 Euro for 2 people).

We were to 4 time, of which the 3 time over christmas at the Mövenpick. Basically we think it is a good, the hotel not bargained away is, however, we do expect, the quality is also upheld. This was unfortunately in this year not the case. Who among many arab extended with plenty of, libertarian erzogener group of kids comfortable, experienced a dream holiday. If you not to the meals directly to the opening of the main restaurant auflief, experienced about 1.5 hours after a trauma! The buffets were spoiled (much they did not put more refilled, shush. Photos) ... and runny. The chairs in the restaurant, you had to before check, whether the stains were fresh or already dried up, in order to decide, if you can, without the clothes too dirty (shush. Photo). Furthermore, both the selection and quality of the food worsened. We regret this, as the area remains very nice and well maintained, but under these circumstances, as we are now in this year experienced, we do not come again. read hotel review
