What a delightful little hotel! Little being the operative word here. If you are the type that loves a massive resort with loads of restaurants to choose from, 10 different pools and hundreds of bars this hotel isn't for you. However, if you are looking for a peaceful and relaxing holiday this one is most definitely for you.
The hotel is done in the quaint 'Gouna' style and is beautiful with quirky little passageways and greenery all over the shop, which is kept clean and trimmed. The staff are polite and welcoming and even remembered me from my first trip :). There is one restaurant and the food is amazing, best all inclusive i have ever sampled! The main pool bar uses REAL glasses (i know this really bothers some people) and the booze measures are fabulous *slur*. The pool and pool area is small but i visited this hotel twice, both times whilst the kids were on school holidays, and not once did i have an issue with over crowding. You do have access to Zeytouna beach via a little boat ride (which runs to time every 15 minutes) but i don't recommend the beach. Its all a bit man made and the access to the sea is rubbish. This isn't just for this hotel, due to the fact i live in Hurghada and visit Gouna regularly i know for a fact most beaches in Gouna are the same. So essentially if you are a big beach/sea person its probably not the resort for you! Only other grumble i have for this hotel are the beds aren't very comfortable, well for me as i am a squidgy bed sort of person and the beds were very firm. Rooms were BEAUTIFUL though and nicely appointed.
Highly recommend this hotel for a relaxing trip for families, business or couples. I'll definitely be visiting again when i need a couple of peaceful and relaxing days away from the craziness of Hurghada!
