We stood in the hotel for 2 weeks and we were both very happy. The hotel is nice, clean, well kept and provides everything one can hope for: close to the beach, pool, safe, water boiler, minibar, etc. Even the mattress was reasonable good. But the best thing about the hotel were the staff. The staff was extremely nice, friendly, good mooded and helpful.
The only thing that didn't life up the general standard was the room service food. We ordered twice from the room service and the food was bad both times. But that could have been from the fact that many people from the staff were on Christmas holidays themselves.
El Gouna itself is a paradise for tourists. I was a bit concerned about safety in Egypt but within El Gouna we never felt unsafe. It is a place were only rich Egyptians live - and tourists. The whole town is owned by a single person that seems to understand what tourists are looking for. One of his rules is that restaurants and shops don't approach you to come in. So, you can actually walk along downtown without being approached all the time.
