“Lovely clean hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

I really liked this hotel location and stuff. I planned to stay 6 night but I extended it because I loved it. I really recommend it for other people. everything was great from value for money, stuff and location. the breakfast was nice.

What I didn't like are 1- the shower room curtain; really annoying. 2- No swimming pool in this hotel. 3- No dedicated beach for it. you should use Moods beach with it's high prices for drinks.

In total: you will never regret spending time in this hotel.

Captain's Inn is a favourite among regulars for its cozziness, average price, and being in a central location. The rooms are relatively small but well equiped and clean, there is no pool but you can use Ali Pacha's (a sister hotel). The view from our window was simply the entrance composed of a few palm trees and an metal detector. The reastaurant has a nice view to the Marina, and breakfast had a lot of varieties. Overall a good experience if you dont want to spend much and know your way around El Gouna.

perfect location in the middle of all attractions, cozy, clean, and comfortable, very polite, friendly and proactive staff, rooms with marina view are spectacular, give you free access to moods beach which is very nice with very active and polite staff, nice music, tasty food, and relaxation atmosphere as almost all places in El Gouna.
for sure we will back.

It's our second stay in captain's inn we just love it. Great great location, value for money and very cozy rooms. Gives you free access to the moods beach, the best beach located in marina. Quick check in service. Breakfast and hotel restaurant on the marina shores which allows you to enjoy the sunny morning breakfast and the fresh breeze at night. Gouna is the place to be.

My husband and I spent 3 nights in Captain's Inn; we chose the hotel because we wanted a Marina hotel. The hotel location is in the middle of everything! You have restaurants, a supermarket, the beach (you get free access to Moods beach which was very pleasant) and the Pool (you either use Three Corners Ocean View or Ali Pasha's pools) all around you.

Check in was fast, we booked a room with the back view. The room had a nice balcony overlooking the small backyard. We checked a Marina View room and a Suite, if you are booking a Marina View, ask for one with a Balcony because the ones with windows didn't make sense because you need to open them in order to see the Marina. The suite had a huge terrace that overlooked the Marina; also it accommodates 3 people (one double bed and one single bed). The only fault with the suite was that it had the same bathroom size as the rest of the rooms which is pretty small.

Our room was small, everything was compact but we didn't mind because we were not planning on spending much time in it anyway. The breakfast was surprisingly good, there was an omelet station and a pancake maker. You can either sit inside or outside right on the Marina with all the lovely views.

Overall it was a nice hotel in the middle of everything and I am sure we will stay there again soon!
