Tripadvisor gives a Travelers’ Choice award to accommodations, attractions and restaurants that consistently earn great reviews from travelers and are ranked within the top 10% of properties on Tripadvisor.
Fanadir Hotel offers modern comfort and blissful quietude in El Gouna on the Red Sea coast. Opened in 2010 as part of Abu Tig Marina's latest development, it overlooks the North Basin and its luxury yachts. Ideal to escape the crowds, this serene setting is merely a few steps away from the main attractions of the marina's South Basin, including cafes and restaurants, bars and nightclubs, and a wide array of boutiques and souvenir shops. The Fanadir Hotel's ideal location, combined with Egypt's mild climate, makes it a perfect choice for holidaymakers seeking active seaside vacations, and in particular for kitesurfers. Within walking distance, Mangroovy Beach has shallow waters and consistent winds; it is home to three kitesurfing stations offering beginner classes, private tuition, and supervised freeriding areas.

This was our 10th visit to the hotel. For obvious reasons we haven’t been able to go for the last couple of years. We were lucky enough to get our favourite room. The hotel is ideal for couples, its quiet, a little bit off the beaten track but only a 10 minute walk to the Marina and restaurants. We used Moods beach everyday, it’s free to guests of the Fanadir.
The room was clean and tidy and we were given a litre of bottled water every day which we put in the mini bar for cold drinks or for tea. All the staff are polite and friendly but I would particularly mention Mahmoud from House keeping and Elia from reception at the Mosaique.
Thanks again for a wonderful holiday.
Regards Paul and Ann
p.s could you change the breakfasts back to what they were

Had an excellent time at the Fanadir, we felt very welcomed back. Reception and Cleaner (sorry can't remember names) were very helpful and efficient.

I was worried about the breakfast choices but I didn't have to worry. You have a choice of a Continental at the Mosaique or you can go over to The Steakhouse in the marina for an excellent Oriental breakfast. The hotel provide a golf buggy but it is only a short walk.
My only one negative is that the sunbeds are soooooo uncomfortable.

No-go: roomboy let the terrace open EVERYTIME!. Basically the bathroom construction is stupid. The hanger is right above the toilet! Apart from that on the hanger only 1 towel fits (hanger-with to small). If you come every second day you need to put 1 extra toilet paper roll in the room! 1 lamp didnt work (room 105) Fanadir

Very nice hotel with peaceful atmosphere, amazing location near all good beaches & Abu tig bars & restaurants. Room service is perfect.
Breakfast was super, pool is nice but not heated, so if weather is a bit cold you couldn’t use the pool as it will be cold.

The hotel is well situated. It's a 15min walk to KBC kitesurf beach or 5min by tuktuk. The hotel in itself is fine, everyone is very friendly. The room has a great size (we had a view on the pool). As usual, if you look closely you can see that some works need to be done, especially the bathroom. For this price, it's totally ok and breakfast is fine too. Restaurants are close by the marina (5min walk) or you take a tuktuk for 35EP.

Hotel is great and staff are friendly and helpful but breakfast experience is really bad. Restaurant rules won't allow us to have breakfast inside in the AC unless we pay for our breakfast which we already paid for in the hotel.

Also one more point which is there is no service around the pool

Average 4 stars hotel with no restaurant at sight and no independent reception but wouldn'trate it more than 3 stars, we checked in at Next door Mosaique hotel where we used their restaurant for dinner and breakfast, it's a lebanese restaurant serving very good food and service at the restaurant is very good as well.
Friendly few staff managing the hotel. Room is just ok, clean with few pillows and we have to ask for extra pillows, few amenities in the bathroom, only liquid soap, shower gel and shampoo.
Design, decoration and colours of exterior and interior are not nice.

I went to Gouna with my small family and my first choice was fanadir but I decided it’s going to be my favourite place to stay in during my coming visits to Gouna . The front office staff was very supportive and we checked in in less than 5 minutes 😊. The staff were very cheerful , friendly and helpful especially the housekeeping staff . They make you feel as if you are home enjoying your stay . The location is great for us because we could move easily to all areas around . Thank you all Fanadir staff for your nice welcoming environment and service you offer to your guests .

Hi Sarah There is a really nice beach within a short walk - the hotel has views of the yacht marina. There is no entertainment in the hotel it animation - fir that you would need to go to the larger resorts like Mövenpick - I've stated in both and prefer this adults only, quiet hotel. Have a wonderful trip !

Hi Catherine I always take breakfast only deal in the hotel as I like to dine around at different restaurants in El Gouna - marina as well as downtown - there are so many good ones ! And they are nice and varied and prices extremely reasonable given the exchange rate. Main courses are around 100 150 LB - Egyptian pounds. I'm on the dive boat must days and have lunch on board - also excellent. Hope this helps !
