I should really keep this a secret but the Fanadir is a truly great place to stay in El Gouna. The rooms are superb, the food good and the location great. It's ideal for kite-surfers being a pleasant walk from the Mangroovy kite centres. I'm sure we will be back again next year.

Hotel Fanadir is extremely relaxing place, not accepting guests below 18 y.o. which makes it perfect place for those who are looking for real relax with the book by the pool! Great Caipirinha and clean, comfy room is everything you really need to enjoy your holiday! Ohhh!!! We appreciated also discreet jazz music by pool

Staff was friendly, honest, and always ready to help. This was a refreshing respite from the hustle of Hurghada. While El Gouna is about 30-40minutes from El Gouna, it feels so much further away. No need to negotiate your taxi rides because there's a set tuksi rate. Fanadir was a gem tucked away from the craziness that can he Egypt.... More

It's not my first time in this hotel, I always come back to this chilled very relaxing hotel with a friendly staff and good service, also the location is great not in center of the marina but close to walk, if Ure planing to chill and have a cosy room then fanadir it is.

We had a Junior Suite marina view. Nice sized room , decent shower although no bath. Usual for Egypt though. The breakfast buffet was very similar to most hotels we've stayed at in El Gouna, good selection with a chef to cook eggs etc to your liking. We were on half board which includes the dine around program. So ate... More

El Gouna, mid January, is very quiet which suited us perfectly. The weather was great and the Fanadir Hotel gave us all we needed. I'm not sure of hotel star ratings in Egypt but I think this would class nearer to 3 stars but with 5 star service. Nothing was too much trouble and all the staff were friendly and... More

We stayed there for 3 nights in a deluxe room with marina view. The hotel itself is nice and relaxing. The room didn't have an unobstructed view, though. If you are paying for a delxue room, make sure you have the view u paid for. The rooms are basic but clean, not top. Few options in minibar. Staff are very... More
