Could not fault the hotel, and the Staff, rooms clean and spacious, great shower, and as requested had lovely view over the pool. Breakfast good choice and again excellent service. Perfect location, near marina with the restaurants, and an added bonus of free entry to Moods Beach. Stayed 8 nights but could easily have stayed longer, very relaxing and will... More

Just back from 7 nights at the Fanadir. This was our 5th visit and it was as enjoyable as ever. We always manage to stay in the same room overlooking the pool. The hotel is small with friendly and helpful staff. There have been a couple of upgrades from last year - free wi fi throughout the public areas (I... More

Enjoyed our 10 nights B&B at the Fanadir hotel very much. I agree with most reviewers that the hotel is probably 3 star, but with 5 star staff. Good breakfast. Large sized rooms with marina or pool views. Pool is usually quiet and sheltered when windy, + it isn't very deep. Our bathroom was good sized with a superb shower,... More

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.
