I have been to Dawar el omda with my wife and friends. Very cosy. Small pool but it's heated which is a major plus if the weather is a bit cold. Walking distance from the center. Nice breakfast (try the waffles). Gouna is a great place in general.

It was our first experience of El Gouna, and Egypt in general. We'd chosen Dawar el Omda due to its value for money and location, both of which were excellent. The hotel itself felt really colourful and unique, and all the staff were fairly welcoming and provided a good service. The pool felt a bit on the small side, but... More

In ten years of visiting El Gouna, this is the first time my husband and I have stayed at Dawar El Omda and we are kicking ourselves that we haven't visited sooner! Dawar El Omda is extremely reasonably priced for El Gouna, but don't let that deceive you - the experience here far outstrips the modest room rates. The attention... More

Excellently located and one of the first hotels in El Gouna, now turned to adults only and partly all inclusive as well. Renovation is still going on in part of the rooms but for us there was no disturbance. Most of the guests were retired Germans. Our suite had only 18 degrees Celsius on arrival and it took three days... More

At least another 20 bars and restaurants within 5 minutes walk. Small reception come lounge, bar area close to swimming pool, bar serves on to patio which is... More

The Dawar is one of the older hotels in the 25 year old town of El Gouna. With this in mind I think that some of the bedrooms will soon be due for a refurbishment. However-my room served allmy needs--including comfortable bed, tea and coffee , cupboard space and a good shower. It was also cleaned excellently every day. The... More
