“If all is well we will be booking again next year”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

We stayed her 8 nights, in the Captain's Suite. We booked the suite for the extra space and the marina facing balcony, though I would mention that if you are a light sleeper there is boomy dance music to be heard between about midnight & 3am (I woke up the 1st night & ignored it on other nights), so if you are sensitive about this kind of thing book a courtyard/back facing room.

Other than a bit of noise (comes from a bar/club across the marina), this is a great place to holiday; comfy beds, air con, satellite tv, lots of hot water and plenty of water pressure from the shower, clean, beach towels, access to beach club & pool, really nice staff. Last but not least a really good breakfast - my favourites where the really fresh croissant which were scoffed down with butter and apricot jam and pancakes with chocolate sauce and nuts - healthy food also freely available.

We arrived at the hotel frazzled and left relaxed, honestly, I don't think you can ask for more than that.

Room Tip: Laundry service is good value so pack with a view to wash and save dragging around heavy cases. My M...

Spent 4 days in the hotel during February, in which we enjoyed the vacation. The weather was really good as well. The rooms are comfortable however not all have sea view. You can enjoy breakfast at the Steakhouse right beside the marina. Hotel gives access to sister hotel's beach and pool, which is only a couple mins away (walking).
Rooms are not very large but comfortable and quiet with an LCD screen. Bathrooms are clean with a hair dryer and soap provided. Unfortunately, i saw one small cockroach on the the bathroom floor. However, it was just one and didn't catch it again as the overall look of the place looks very clean!
El gouna is a large resort with various restaurant, supermarket and libraries. You can go surfing, para sailing, Sahara safari or snorkeling. All activities can be arranged through the hotel's reception. You can also go Bike riding or go-karting in El gouna downtown.
Overall, it was a happy trip which all family members enjoyed, either relaxing on the beach or going out for all the different activities..

Room Tip: Ask for the sea view rooms. Other rooms over look the gardens and give less privacy if you want to l...

I was offered an upgrade for my room for being a regular this time. If You have any complaints while there the staff will handle it swiftly. Very convenient and decently priced. The bed was sooooo comfortable!

Room Tip: Pick a room with a king size bed. Stay on the first floor

Central location is very convenient though can bring some noise especially in high season when shows are put on in front of the hotel. Breakfast was good, room small but clean with satellite TV, mini-bar and tea making facilities.
Overall good value for money.

Not my first time in goua, but the first in captain's inn and definetely not the last.
Very good quality for money, excellent location. I was lucky to get a room with a big terrace overlooking the hotel yard. Breakfast was good dinner was very good, although bread basket was only served when requested (which is not normal in restaurants in el gouna), we had the surf and turf and the grilled salmon, both are amazing.
The staff very friendly and helpful.
Would definitely go there again.
