“March 2013 stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Had a fabulous week at the Moevenpick Hotel. Room was gorgeous, as was the hotel and facilities. The food excellent. The staff genuinely friendly and helpful. Would recommend to anybody. I went with my daughter and we felt safe the whole time. El Gouna was lovely and didn't get hassled. Took 2 trips out to sea and my daughter swam with dolphins. (32 of them!!)

Room Tip: We stayed in room with sea view in Clusuter 4 and we were very happy with it.

Thank you for your visit. We are delighted, that you had a nice stay and felt safe with us in El Gouna and that the room, the quality of food and the service received by our employees were up to your expectations.

Just spent two weeks at the Movenpick & had a fantastic time.
We requested the same room we had on a previous visit & the management duly obliged and this time the room had been refurbished to a very high standard.
The highlight of our stay was at Il Limone restaurant where our friend celebrated her birthday.The whole staff made it a most memorable night treating us like VIP,s & singing "Happy Birthday" in both English & Arabic.
A special mention has to be given to the animation team Abd, Adham & Elena, they where a fantastic bunch of young people greeting us with enthusiasm, so positive & full of energy, they made us feel years younger

Room Tip: We had a room in cluster 7 overlooking one of the lagoons & close to the lagoon pool, perfect

We spent two nights in this resort .It is located on a vast area and resembeles ( Brouge city-
Belgium)with its lakes and canals.My room(cluster *8) was footstep from one of the canals.
Beeches are well serviced. Staff were friendly and cooperative Food quality is good with food and beverage manager was supervising all major meals .Unfortunately room quality was a different story where the furniture needs repair,TV an outdated non-flat screen one,bathroom was not adequate and needs updating.Meeting facilitieies were below average ,since during our activity there were frequent interruptions because of mic malfunction. I think with more attention to room quality this resort becomes a supreme resort.

Dear Hussein
thank you for your visit. We are happy to know, that you've enjoyed your stay, especially the nice experiences in our Food & Beverage. At the same time, we regret that the room was not up to your expectations. As a matter of fact, a part of the hotel rooms have not been renovated yet, and are therefore sold at lower rate, category 'Economy' room.s All standard rooms though have been renovated. Please do not hesitate to contact us for your next stay in advance, in order to arrange a nice room at your preferred location.
Hoping to be able to welcome you back soon.

With best regards

we are a group of doctors who attend a medical confers for a weekend in this huge hotel which we can not finish enjoying every part of it in only three days ,so we are planning to come back again.it is prestigious hotel with amazing views,many pools and nice lagoon,beach and many activities to share.at night you can enjoy the parties they do and you can go downtown or to the marina.the food was good,gala dinner was fantastic over the pool.rooms are clean and their is many views varieties for all taste the only drawback was the personal who needs more training on how to treat the gusts with a smile.otherwise it is a relaxing place.

We loved this hotel, beautiful room, friendly staff and service, amazing gardens and views, good choice of food, pools and restaurants We were there for my birthday, they made me a cake and the waiters at the Oasis poolside restaurant sang "happy Birthday" in English and in Arabic. The whole area had a power cut one evening (candle thoughtfully provided in room) and the view of the stars from our balcony was mind boggling. Cerainly one of the highlights which I shall never forget. Definitely go back if only Thos.Cook didn't pack travellers into planes like sardines.

Room Tip: Some rooms are a long walk from the central reception and restaurant. If this is a problem ask for a...

We have a daughter that is disabled and in a wheelchair. We asked in advance if it was accessible for wheelchairs and were told there would be no problem. They were more than true to their word.There is about 2 steps in the whole resort, which we her chair up....they had 2 lifts and everywhere else had either flat paths or slopes. They gave us an adapted room so we could shower her with ease. They were also outstanding when it came to liquidizing her food. The staff bent over backwards to make our stay as easy as possible despite our little ones complex needs.We can not thank them enough for everything, and we would defiantly go back again. We spoke with may people there who all said the same, infact we meet 3 couples that DO go back every year.....Highly recommend this hotel to all...So thank you movenpick and staff for everything from the Memory clan, Nicky told everyone about the holiday and how much fun she had.

Room Tip: Our favorite pool was the Lagoon pool and the rooms there were great
