“A perfect getaway.”
Reviewed June 17, 2012

I just love this place. Its small, but you dont feel cramped. Its well serviced, has excellent staff, and is very very clean and modern. Coming from Cairo for mini break weekends, we have now chosen this hotel 4 times. And it has never failed - in fact i would say it has gotten better every time. The pool area is beautiful, and you are minutes away from the marina, with may bars and restaurants. The breakfast is excellent with a wide vairerty of food, cold and hot, as is the lunch menu. The rooms are modern, with very tasteful decor and very clean. We have stayed here with a couple and with friends - good for all occassions. Most guests are European. There is excellent water sport facilities nearby (Kite Surfing), which the hotel can help you with. They can also provide help with getting to/from airport. Essentially faultless. Love it.

Room Tip: I like a room on the 3rd floor for the view, but there are only stairs, no elevator (that i have see...

Been in El Gouna seven times at different hotels. This is my second time staying at hotel Fanadir for two weeks, and this time my brother followed with me. It was his first time in Egypt and he really liked El Gouna and our hotel a lot! The location of the hotel is perfect. The beatutiful new marina just outside and near to the private beach.Very nice,fresh and charming room with so lovely view over the new marina and the beautiful Red Sea. Service and the kindness of the staff can´t be any better. Familiar atmosphere made us feel very comfortable and happy all our staying.

Room Tip: "Rooms with seaview on higher floor"

I have just came back from one of the best vacations i have spent, this time i was in El Gouna and i decided to go to fanadir hotel. I have heard about the nice boutique hotels at el gouna; so i decided to try it this time. I was comparing between almost 4 to 5 hotels at el gouna, all has the same style; however; by checking these hotels at the internet i choose Fanadir.
we were a couple, arrived around 13:00, the car road to the hotel was under maintenance works, but finally we reach the hotel. The lobby is very well designed and organized specially it is so small. The check in was easy and perfect (we have been welcomed by Medhat from the reception). The Manager of the hotel was there in the lobby during our arrival, we did not talk; however; he looks friendly.
We had a room over looking to the pool in the second floor; the room is simple, clean, well furnished and we love it. The hotel has only one restaurant where we can have our breakfast as well as a lobby bar and there was a bar in the swimming pool. The design and the furniture of the hotel is very stylish as well as the super location close to the marine. The breakfast was very good, specially the excellent service received by the restaurant staff. Sadly we have to leave but definitely we will be back.

Room Tip: Rooms over looking to the marine, higher floor

We have visited El Gouna frequently and usually stay in an apartment, however this time we decided to give one of the new hotels in the Marina a try. We got an excellent deal and upgraded to a Deluxe room overlooking the Marina. We were not disappointed by the Hotel which was all that it promised to be but...and its a big but...they totally let us down by forgetting to send our transport to the airport to pick us up.

I always book transport in advance as the taxi services at the airport are expensive and frankly quite daunting. This trip was no exception and I asked the hotel to arrange transport giving them my flight details at the time of booking, I even emailed them on the morning of our departure to remind them. We waited 45 minutes at the airport before phoning a contact who lives in El Gouna and asking him to contact the hotel on our behalf to find out what the situation was. The message came back that there was no transport on its way - they just hadn't bothered. We made our own way there arriving over two hours after we had landed expecting them to be at least apologetic - they just didn't seem to appreciate there was a problem making some excuse about fuel shortages - didn't really apologise or try to make amends. What a shame that this attitude spoiled an otherwise lovely holiday. We are seasoned travellers in Egypt and even we find Hurghada airport and the taxi situation daunting so just imagine if we had been first timers with a young family or elderly.

On the whole the rest of our experience was a good one and the majority of the staff were friendly and efficient but I am giving them a poor rating for service based on the issue over transport and the failure to make amends or apologise for their mistake.

As a part of our trip me and my wife stayed at Fanadir Hotel what i can say;
Very quiet location on Abu Tig Marina, The staff are very friendly and helpful. The breakfast buffet is amazing reasonable prices for the accommodation and food. El Gouna as a resort has all you need and more. Special thanks to Besho And of course all the other staff who helped us whit anything we needed we sure would like to go back.

Room Tip: You can stay on B&B and have a time to eat out as there are many nice restaurants around in El G...

My girlfriend and I stayed here for 2 weeks in March. I LOVE El Gouna--this was my third visit in 4 years-all in March-but the first to the Fanadir-a sparkling new hotel on the New Marina.
We enjoyed everything about this hotel--our room overloooked the marina-a fabulous view to wake up to every morning. However I would be more than happy with a pool view room too. We had a very comfortable Super King bed-and slept really well.
We sent most days by the pool-which is spotless and ideal for relaxing in the comfortable loungers.
We stayed on a bed and breakfast basis-I would always do this in El G-we ate at 13 different resaurants-Downtown and Marina -and every meal was top notch-with excellent service every time-and good value.
The hotel breakfast was all one could wish for-the pancakes and museli being our own favourites. After all the choices there was no need for lunch-making the holiday even better value.
All the staff are friendly and efficient-service with a smile. In particular I must mention Mina and Beshoy on Reception who were both exceptional-with answers to any questions we had.
The hotel is adults only and quite small-54 rooms-which is what we wanted. No blaring music or pool games-just peace and quiet with drinks brought to us by the pool when required.
Ignore any media scare stories about Egypt---Cairo might as well be on another planet to El Gouna-which is my favourite Sunshine destination. Plenty to see/do in the town--lovely to simply wander round or shop-and remember-El G is a NO HASSLE resort--so you can browse as much as you wish.The hotel is spotlessly clean-as is the town. Go there-for every tourist visiting one Egyptian job is created.
We booked independently with the Hotel and flew to Hurghada with Easyjet. The hotel organised an airport pick up for us for 150 Egyptian pounds.
We will certainly return to the Fanadir

We have just come back from a week here (2nd to 9th March) This was our fourth visit to El Gouna and the last time we were there they were just finishing off the new marina so this time we wanted to stay there. We always stay on a bed and breakfast basis as we like going to the restaurants around the Marina and downtown.
The room, the staff and the position suited us just fine.
The room we were in (215) had a lovely view over the new Marina. We hope to return to El Gouna again next year and will definately stay at this hotel.
