El gouna is a weird artificial compound in the desert, but after the initial shock wears off its a nice break from Cairo. Dawar el omda is very relaxing and has excellent service, especially from Andrew at the pool bar.

We had a few days in El Gouna to relax and chill and this hotel was just perfect as the location of the hotel too (nearby you can find the best restaurant ever: PUDDLEDUCK). We booked a standard room, but we got a de luxe one, which was very clean and comfortable. Although they promised luxurious bathroom accessories, we only... More

This hotel may have once been a 4 star boutique hotel, but that was some years ago. I found it tired, unloved and uncared for. I expect a boutique hotel to be 'high end', with exceptional standards of decor, furnishings, cleanliness and service and this was not the case with the Dawar El Omda. There are clearly maintenance and cleanliness... More

Just back from a 7 day break,can not speak too highly of all the staff,all friendly and helpful.The hotel is not large and that is what makes it different because the staff and guests mix together.Nothing we would complain about, but do not expect super modernised sterile rooms since this is not the atmosphere and style of the hotel.A really...

Lovely hotel, even had a lovely smell! Helpful and speedy staff, but unobtrusive when not needed. The gardens were pretty and the room had a wonderful view of the infinity pool and straight down the lagoon to the sea. Very near the main down town square, so a great place for an evening walk. Short boat trip to the beach,... More
