“Beautiful property, exellent service, great value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

I spent a week on a quiet vacation at the Movenpick in El Gouna. The weather in late February was almost perfect and the resort was an almost perfect setting. My room was spacious , comfortable and nicely situated. The included breakfast was extensive my only suggestion is that the hotel provide real newly pressed orange juice.

I was not on a all-inclusive plan but tried most of the restaurants. Exellent food especially the seafood buffet with lobster at the seafood restaurant. The Thai restaurant was less successfull in creating the real thing. I had a good experience at the italian restaurant il Limone. Lunch at the Oasis pool was just fine. Friendly and competent service at all venues.

One downside to the resort is the very shallow water at the beaches, swimming is better experienced in pools ( some heated in February). Another alternative is joining the many outings by boat, I was pleased with Colona Divers.

Lastly I would like to compliment the reception staff for compentent friendly service and great language skills

We are still staying at the hotel and loving it.
I came here with my 5 year old daughter to take 1 weeks chill out time and enjoy the beautiful weather of Egypt v's Sweden at this time of year.
The hotel itself is spread out over a vast area and at first this was quite overwhelming but after 3 days felt spacious and lets you feel like you have the peace and calm that i was after.
The staff are ABOVE EXCELLENT, so nice, wam and friendly. I do have to say though that there is an obvious lack of female staff - only 1 on duty at breakfast - so i am not sure what the reasons are - odd but true. Food is excellent considering the potential amount of guests they serve.
The one thing that is overwhelmingly frustrating is the OASIS pool.
The pool is set in the most beautiful location in front of the sea and beach area. However its not heated - -whilst this might seem an of statement to make as i am sure the pool is wonderful in late April - September time; however in March the pool is not freezing but its not enjoyable - ESPECIALLY for kids.
So this means every day we have had to leave our room and walk all the way over to the Lagoon pool - this is a little annoying as we got a great room in Cluster 6 which we upgraded to for 50Euros a night just so we can see the sea and be close to the pool.
Lagoon pool lovely but its not the OASIS pool.
Dissapointed with the Hotel in this one count as there seems to be no statement on their website.
Would we come back - defiantely but not in the Winter and Spring months unless the OASIS pool is heated.
In all i say that the best part of the hotel are the staff and this is why people quite rightly return.

Room Tip: Cluster 6 with great sea views - we have room 6206 which has an adjoining door so you could be a fam...

Dear Guest.
Thank you for your visit. We are happy to know, that you and your family enjoyed your stay. At the same time, we are sorry, that you were disappointed, that Oasis Pool is not heated. As a matter of fact, this is the only pool, that we can not heat, due to technical reasons. Lagoon Pool and Spa Pool, both even bigger than Oasis Pool, can be heated in the winter month, in addition to the Health Club Pool. We thank you for your review and hope to be able to welcome you back for another visit at Moevenpick Resort & Spa El Gouna.

Best regards

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.

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.

Hoping to be able to welcome you back soon.

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.
