This was my 3rd visit to El Gouna, after staying in other 5 & 4 star hotels, Dawar El Omda was definitely my favorite on so many levels. The stay were genuinely nice and friendly and went out of their way to help us and give us everything we asked (and didn't ask) for. From room upgrade, to late checkout,... More

I went again to the wonderful hotel rooms feature elegant touches of oriental design, and have private balconies and satellite TV. Each room is equipped with a minibar and a stylish bathroom with amenities.

This is my second time at this boutique hotel. I love the downtown location. Rooms are spotless and housekeeping is excellent. Lovely pool (see picture) and a few mins ferry ride through the lakes to the Zeytouna beach. The only drawback we had was how LONG it took us to get checked in. We had a long drive from Cairo...

Pleasantly surprised with our stay. It had authentic Egyptian interior and a lovely outdoor area for relaxing. Breakfast is as expected. Rooms are spacious and beds very comfortable. Disappointed at check out. Printer was broke so we couldn't get an itemised bill. Then he didn't have change and we were told we should have paid the night before we were... More

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
