“Still the best in this paradise resort.”
Reviewed November 22, 2013 via mobile

The friendly efficient staff all seem to have been there forever and on this our 5th visit all knew us!!! We always ask for area 7 because there one can find rooms with baths. The main dining room offers different themes each night of excellent 4* rating buffet meals. If one has the slightest complaint they will cook to order what you want. The Thai restaurant was disappointing, cheap rice undercooked veg. and poor quality beef.
Poolside service impeccable as ever.

We spent 5 days in this hotel during our honeymoon. It was very nice and cozy. Our room overlooked the sea, the lagoon and the swimming beautiful. It was very clean and it had a fresh modern design. The breakfast was full of varieties and the staff were very friendly.
I would love to go there again someday.

Room Tip: Deluxe rooms that overlook the sea are nice.

I stayed with my husband and friends in early October this year. This hotel is enormous and involves loads of walking to get from one area to another. Not good if you are a bad walker like my husband. Although it does sit on the beach as advertised the water is so shallow that it is impossible to swim and entry is over small rocky bits. We felt the whole place was very tired and well worn. Very noisy around the pool area as there were loads of children. However, the restaurants that needed booking, Italian, Thai and Fish, were excellent. The best food I have had in Egypt. There is a small premium to pay at the fish restaurant, but so worth it. The golf at the nearby golf course was lovely. Very long if you are thinking of walking it. However, the shuttle to pick you up after golf can be a bit hit and miss. Don't miss the shuttle boat that takes you around the Lagoon. It is lovely to see all the incredibly beautiful houses. No shortage of money in this area!

Dear Susan,

thank you for your review here on Tripadvisor, we were glad to welcome you at our resort and we are concerned finding you disappointed.
Yes the resort is quite huge and normally we are trying to allocate guests not very well in walking closer to all amenities.
Maybe we will be able to welcome you another time, and please feel free in this case to contact us in advance to arrange all facilities according to your needs.
Sunny greetings

I stayed at Movenpick for two weeks and had a great time. The room was nice and the staff were extremely helpful and polite. The food at the buffet is varied every day and was always very good. We ate at the il Limone restaurant most days and the food was always excellent, especially the steak. Downtown is a very short drive away and there are lots of bars and restaurants there.

The hotel is very large with lots of different beach areas and pools so there was always space to relax and enjoy yourself.

I would definitely recommend learning Arabic with Adham from the animation team as it was a lot of fun and being able to speak a bit of Arabic made the holiday a lot more interesting. All of the animation team were great and there were plenty of activities to do during the day.

In the evening we would sit in the piazza and watch the entertainment or go to Downtown. On the weekend there was an oriental show and a fakir show which were both great and definitely worth watching! I was involved in the Fakir show and it was really entertaining.

Overall the hotel itself is great with lots of helpful staff, very nice food and amazing views. Special thanks to the animation team who really made our holiday great.

Stayed september 2013 Not upto a 5 Star
Have stayed at various hotels in El guona but this one was by far the worst.
The room was good and the setting, then down hill from there the food bland, dirty gym, dirty, stained chairs in the main restaurant, ripped, heavily stained sun loungers at the lagoon pool,
menu at the lagoon bar very limited, reserved seating for eygptians at the pool bar people told to move. Overall a very bad experience people who had been to this hotel for years were horrified how it had gone down.
