Wow, it really was as good as I hoped it would be.

We arrived back from a 10 day stay at the Arena Inn in El Gouna on Monday night.

What a holiday! I have officially fallen in love with El Gouna and cannot wait to go back.

Highlights of the holiday included:

- A day trip to Luxor (well worth the journey)

- Snorkelling

- Jeep safari

- Mini golf!

- Fantastic food in various different restaurants

- Amazing people

If anyone has any questions about my time I would be more than happy to answer them.

My review for the hotel is currently at the top of this page:

tripadvisor.co.uk/Hotel_Review-g297548-d6110…

We really liked the hotel, the staff were fantastic and it's in a great location to get around Downtown.

I miss it already :(

Going back to El Gouna next Friday for the 3rd time, missed going last year as we went to Florida and did the "Theme parks" - Never again.

I have 2 boys 14 and 11 and they are more exited about returning to El Gouna than they were about going to Florida.

Many years ago we decided that we would never go to the same place twice as the World is a big place.

How wrong were we

Already talking about going to El Gouna again maybe later in the year.

If you're there from 17/05/2013 I'll see you there.

We're also off on Friday 17th for our third visit! So looking forward to some R&R, the odd cocktail or two and maybe a bit of sunshine wouldn't go a miss :-)

Already have this year's "fix" sorted! However, can't resist checking what's available already for next year, and Thomas Cook are not showing anything for El Gouna at all??
