We love El Gouna. Is like a little gem hidden in the desert. This resort is not like any other in Egypt as you are not hassled and left to enjoy all that it offers. Downtown has many shops, bars and restaurants. The Abu Tig marina is also worth a visit to see the yachts while dining. Getting around is easy by local bus or tuk tuk.

El Gouna is a quiet resort. Nothing like Benidorm. Plenty of eating places both in marina and downtown area. Not a lot for children in El Gouna. There is a beach and it's free. You can use Moods bar beach as well. There are snorkel trips and desert quad bikes. There's a slider cable and go carts. Finally in El Gouna the shops, bars and restaurant staff are not allowed to pester you and hassle you to enter their premises. Bliss. Take note other resorts in other countries can be a nuisance. At the moment El Gouna does seem a little quiet for British guests, I think Hurghada is more for All Inclusive; our Thomas Cook flight was full both ways. There are trips to Cairo and you can fly if you wish. El Gouna is a very safe resort.

Great resort! Masses to do watersport wise and not too touristy. Marina for bars and restaurants. Sliders for cable wakeboarding, Habib horseriding for sunrise/sunset beach rides, swimming with horses. I was in a group of 2. Me and my husband. Brand new squash courts. Polo field and club house being built. Great snorkelling. Great dolphin watching. (51 one day) Great kite-surfing, windsurfing) with several kite schools catering from beginners to advanced. Elements being awesome. So a lot of older active people. Less suitable for young families outside the hotel. This is in the middle of the desert. Can also do desert buggy rides - we didn't!

Only ever been in the winter months when it's a lot quieter than the summer, I'm told. There is a street festival every Friday from April to October. Plenty of bars and restaurants. The shops are not too expensive but you never find out a price 'til you go in and haggle. The resort has two very large marinas which are packed with some extremely expansive yachts. If you want more traditional Egyptian shops, bars and restaurants then go to Downtown. There are golf courses and a water park on the outskirts. Hire a Tut - Tut for a few hours, cost very little and the driver will show you the sights.

The shops are quite cheap in town. You should try the Greek restaurant and JoBo if you want a nice drink and meal also on Monday night live music and you can watch all sports, really friendly staff. If you want to go to marina, get a tuk tuk only cost about 50 pence each.
