If you expect to find a luxurious hotel, big rooms and big pool, then your visit disappointing, but if you expect a clean, perfect location 3 stars hotel, Captain's inn will be a perfect choice Breakfast was good, but I recommend to take a marina view room, and better to take the one with balcony, as the sun hardly visits...

Best location and value for money, very helpful and friendly staff i will definitely go back soon. Rooms are a bit small but beds are so comfortable. The variety of food in the breakfast is limited but the quality is perfect and for healthy food freaks u'll find what u want. I have no concerns whatsoever.

The location is AMAZING! The hotel looks out onto the marina, close to all the restaurants. If you can pay a little extra, get a marina view room. Worth every penny. The staff are incredibly friendly. The first room we got was very dingy and we asked for another one and they cooperated in a swift manner, giving us an... More

I've been to El gouna enough times, and i always find Captain's Inn the Heart of the Marina as its location is quite amazing and their service is descent. Their rooms are renovated and well equipped. I have to admit Mr. John Gamil working there made a difference with his hospitality. Moreover, free access to MOODS which is a great... More

Great hotel in the very best location. The breakfast is great value for money with lots of variety. The staff are very helpful, so why only 4 stars? Wi-Fi is chargeable which I would have expected to be free. Would also have expected free tea/coffee making facilities but again it was chargeable. Finally, we reserved two marine view suites at...

I can't review the hotel as I haven't stayed there. However I can review the restaurant as I have eaten there a few times over the years. The location is probably one of the best in El Gouna. Right at the heart of the marina. You can sit out nearly at the waters edge if it isn't too busy. However... More

I stayed for two nights, it was a great experience. The staff is really helpful and decent. The fact that the hotel gives you free access to Moods beach is really awesome. I tried their massage and it was an ultimate relaxation. After all, I enjoyed my stay and it was worth it to stay in captain's inn for its... More

For a first timer in EL-Gouna, this was a good experience starter for me, and the recommendation by the friend who organized the trip was right on the spot, as we were a large group, and some wanted the marina view and others didn’t bother for it (the marina view is obviously a little costlier but it is understandable) Being...
