Not overly impressed by the buffet food in the restuarant in the evening but was very impressed by the jewellers where my husband bought me a gorgeous diamond ring :-)

Historical Traveller Reviews of Sheraton Miramar Resort El Gouna Hotel

best holiday ever!

from luckie
We have just spent a week in paradise! Hotel and it's staff second to none. Our room was spacious, airy and spotless and the bathroom fabulous.The grounds and beach were sensational did not feel crowded at all and the breakfast was out of this world! Outside the Sheraton we only ate at La Scala, as the food was so good we tried to get through the whole menu! Because of this we are going back in Dec to try some of the other restaurants! The bus for £1 was very good value and had the ride of a lifetime on a tok tok.

excellent

from langerdan
Really enjoyed our week at the Mirimar. Location is stunning, Buildings are unique, Staff are top class and the food is wonderful and varied. I did not have one complaint with the Hotel and my only regret is that I had not taken a two week break. In my opinion, this is as good as it gets. I will be back.

OUR VIEW THE BEST HOTEL

from hamilton30
We have just returned from the Sheraton Miramar in El Gouna to us after looking at the other hotels while there was in our opinion the very best choice. The set up is so lovely and there are plenty of places that you can walk and even be on your own. which is very hard to do in any resort
All the staff are excellent and very helpful
The massage is a must there very good
We were on a Bed/Breakfast so we could explore the different resturants
well blui blui the chichen in rosemary was very good , tanoor indian very good masala, captains inn good steak, the hut good fish, china house the cheapest meal and drinks very good went there 3 times . kikis italion homemade lasana and lamb chops with mash very good mixed grill not bad
in most of these we also had tomato soup which was all very good. a 2 course meal with bottle of wine or 4 beers for 2 people can cost between £20 to £25 make sure thats egyptian wine imported wine is very expensive
The supermarkets in downtown have stella beers & wine very cheap if you want to drink on your balcony ciggerettes are the best buy rothmans or malbourough will cost you about between £7 to £8 for 200 so if you smoke
buy them when you get out there
The entertainment programme is very good for adults and children if you like to keep busy during the day & evening
4-00pm is also a must for cake tea & coffee see for youselves
shuttle bus ticket for week is £1 and a tok tok is 50pence brill !!!!!!!
Take the lagoon trip cost £3 to learn about el gouna around 45 minutes
lots to do or just chill out we enjoyed it so much we will be returning to the Sheraton miramar next year i could go on and on but see for yourselves
.

t think of anything bad to say about this hotel/resort !

from A TripAdvisor Member
Well! This resort is only 30 mins from Hurghada airport. It's a self-contained and secure complex - but it certainly doesn't feel like it. It is fantastic. There is a resort bus which collects you from your hotel and drops you off at either the marina or downtown. Both areas have a wide selection of bars and restaurants. We tried Blue blue - excellent, a pizza restaurant (pizzas were £2.50) and Tandor at the Marina. The Tandor indian was unbelievable good. At downtown we went in Kiki's - again v nice.

The hotel was very good. It's quite large but it doesnt seem busy and overcrowded. We had a 4000 room which was perfect for us - 2 mins walk from the dive centre and 2 mins walk to the hotel reception. The beach is a bit further but no problem.

Breakfast had a very wide range of breads/pastries (my favourite) with all the usual cooked items and fruit. We ate in the Orient 1001 restaurant which was very good - a lady bakes pitta bread outside - so its always warm and very fresh. It was more expensive than the marina/downtown restaurants - but worth trying.

Diving was very good - well organised and safely arranged - no problems at all.

Service at the hotel was very good - at lunch if you are on the beach a waiter just turns up with the menu and brings you lunch. Rooms very clean with air/con and your own balcony/terrace with loungers and TEA AND COFFEE MAKING facilities! Imagine !

We paid £250 each for the week b&b with Portland - fantastic holiday for the price.

Loved it!!!

from appleban
Our expectations were immediately exceeded the moment we stepped through the door of our room. We had been allocated a huge room with a king sized bed. The room had a domed ceiling which was about 18 ft high, so even though we had a very good air con unit, it was always comfortable in the room. We had our own terrace with sunbeds, overlooking the lagoon, which got the sun most of the day. The bathroom was a good size with a large shower. Our room was in a great position - close to the pool, the beach and the main hotel bar/restaurant, but far enough away not to be overlooked or to hear noise.

The hotel itself is run so efficently. It is kept spotless, and the staff are the most polite, friendly people that I have ever met whilst on holiday. For the waiters at breakfast, the pool entertainment staff, the gardeners, the maintenance people, the reception staff etc, I have nothing but praise.

We booked on a bed and breakfast basis and were happy with our choice, as the restaurants at the marina were of a very high standard, particularly La Scala, Le Deauville (both have European chefs) and Bleu Bleu. The marina was, in my opinion, a more upmarket place to eat than the downtown area, though I can recommend Jobo's in the Tamr Henna area of downtown for a good meal on a budget. A meal at one of the nicer restauarants (eg Le Deauville) would cost about £6 pounds for a fillet steak. Please note that the Egyptian wines are quite raw, and though I am not a wine snob (I do like Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay and Shiraz and do not usually pay more than a fiver for a bottle over here or £10/£12 in a restaurant) I found them quite undrinkable. The Egyptian bottled beer (Stella - not the European Stella!! - and Sakara is quite nice though. The only restaurant that I would not recommend is the Steakhouse - awful!


My partner and I came here to enjoy a relaxing holiday where he could do some diving and I could top up my tan and maybe get a bit of culture.

He rated the PADI diving centre at the hotel very highly. He completed his Open Water, Advanced Open Water and Nitrox courses here at approx 60% of the price in the UK. He swam with dolphins, dived two wrecks and raved about the fish and coral.

I went out with him on a dive boat and discovered snorkelling while he dived (I am talking about me who doesn't even like getting my face wet and has a morbid fear of getting water up my nose). Thanks to the boats captain who insisted I go and see his Red Sea and held onto me for 40 minutes, while he showed me the some of the most amazing sights I have ever seen. When I got back to the hotel, I went to the shop and bough a snorkel and mask, practiced in the pool and a couple of days later went out on a snorkelling trip. The guide said that it was the first time he had ever seen anyone go snorkelling holding a big yellow lilo, but hey..I snorkelled!!!!

Did the trip to Luxor on a coach, well worth getting up early morning for......can't describe it, you need to see it for yourself.

I could go on and on....

We came back, after 14 days had flown by, on the 22/4/05 and within 5 days we have booked to go back again next year for another two weeks, this time to see Cairo and do more snorkelling.

I did speak to a friend who went to Sharm at the same time as us, with a view to going there next year. She said it was like Blackpool and she would only stay for a week if she went again, so we're sticking to what we liked.

If you have any doubts about this hotel, please read all the excellent reviews and go and see for yourself. I found the reviews on here very helpful before I went.

If you have any questions on the hotel or the resort, I will be very happy to answer them if I can.

Fantastic oasis in the dessert

from A TripAdvisor Member
What a fantastic place to go for a week if you are looking to relax in the sun, go snorkelling, diving, kitesurfing or just swim! We have just returned and are missing it.
We stayed at the Sheraton Miramar and think we picked the best one in El Gouna. Service is superb, we had a room close to the main hotel complex and the pool. Rooms are very clean and housekeeping is great. The pool is well laid out and clean and you are not allowed to reserve sun beds until 9am. This was nice as it meant you did not have to get up at the crack of dawn. We went on B&B basis and felt this was the best way. Breakfast at the hotel is very good with a huge selection of hot and cold food.
At night we ventured out using the shuttle bus (£1 for the whole week from reception) to Downtown and Abu Tig Marina but do try a Tok Tok, they are great fun.
Abu Tig Friday night has a street party with lots of atmosphere. We ate at The Tandoori - excellent!!!!!!!!, Captains Inn - good for steak and chips, La Scala - Italian. All the food we ate was very good but be careful with the spirits as they can charge up to £4 for a vodka, whiskey & Bacardi.
Downtown on a Satuday night is open air music next to the Sandbar. This was very enjoyable. We ate at Kiki's - excellent roof top views and the gearlic bread is a must and Le Tabasco - great terrace views and the veal is good.
We found El Gouna to be lacking in only one thing - a Nightclub! However the night before we left a disco called Mirage was opening so we will have to check it out when we go next time. Try the Mangroovy Beach Party on Sun/ Wed night but don't get caught out by the Rihanna beach club which is before if you are walking along the path.
The wind can be a bit sharp at night and I was glad I took a wrap for my shoulders especially when you go on the open air shuttle busses but it is still a very comfortable temperature at night. We cannot fault the weather, the sun was hot and the breeze made it comfortable.
One last thing - Go snorkelling. The variety of fish is amazing and the 2 hour boat trips are well worth the 14 Euros but also walk along the pier at Zeytuna beach and enjoy part of the mangrove wildlife for an hour or so!

Not 5 Star Standard

from A TripAdvisor Member
After reading rave reviews about this hotel we were really looking forward to it but we didn't find it to be the 5star standard it maintains it is. The bedroom were big and spacey, however the furniture was old, the bed and pillows very uncomfortable as they were so hard, there was no bath only a very small shower cubicle. If you are going to eat in the hotel I suggest you try the Oriental or Italian restaurant, the buffet style restaurant is not great. You can have some lovely meals outside the hotel which I recommend in either El Gouna village or at the Marina. If someone would ask me if I would go again the answer would be no.

great not in egypt

from wwhassouna
my experience with sheraton miramr started in 2001 and eversince i pay t least one yearly visit to elgouna nad if i am luckyi can still some find some good rates in sheraton . el gouna itself is amazing and beautiful and miramar is on the top although movenpick has been more popular but i dont think it deserves it . The hotel staff and their GM alexander are great and helpful the hotel is where u feel at home food is excellent try to be in clusters that view the klagoon or pool as they are closer also use dine around option

this hotel is a gr8 paradise in egypt best location for leisure el gouna

Disney Paradise

from NvD
This is absolutely ideal for families with small kids like ours (2 and 4). Great big rooms with a connecting door (they call it 'family room'), balconies with magnificent view, beach in front of the rooms. Beautiful gardens. It is a huge hotel which means that the restaurants are meant for thousands of people. Nevertheless, the food was good. The only thing is that there is nothing else: El Gouna is a quiet artificial place, in the middle of the desert.

During our stay, it was very windy and therefore quite cold. That was a pity, because we really came to relax and sit on the beach. But our children loved it, and so did we.

Friendly and helpful staff. We'd like to come back.

Lovely Jubbly

from A TripAdvisor Member
Have just returned from a week at the Sheraton and loved it. The hotel was spacious and well kept and the staff attentive and friendly and the weather beautiful. El Gouna is laid back and has some nice restaurants around the marina and some good bars downtown (even karaoke!!). We booked Thomas Cook bed and breakfast and this as great value as it so cheap to eat out. Trips wise Luxor you get picked up at 4.45 AM 5hrs there and 5hrs back, but I would recommend Mahmya island, its absoloute paradise and well worth the trip which includes snorkelling and BBQ. If you're reading this looking for inspiration for your holiday this is a lovely resort and place and I thoroughly recommend it, and if you're reading this having booked you lucky thing you will love it!! N.b. Watch out for the mosquitos and sand flies. Also take a Tok Tok great fun!!

Top Local Tips for El Gouna

where to shop loads cheaper to go to the small supermarkets than buy from the on site shops in the hotel complex

Hurghada Airport is a nightmare! Hurghada Aiport was a nightmare with people pushing and locals trying to get tips off you! No organisation what so ever, queue jumping by locals pushing people's cases and demanding money!Hold onto your cases and be firm that you don't want any help! We got charged £10 stg each for entrance stamp, but this seems to vary from person to person! There are shops, like a bazaar market type units at the airport on departure for getting any souvenirs.

Best time to visit We were advised by the local staff and other holiday makers that the best time to visit for great weather and not too hot/cold is March, April and September. In January it was about 20-22o C, but there was a stiff breeze most days. The sun was setting about 5pm and the evenings were cold, however for some winter sun it was better than previous experiences in the Canary Islands, we had clear blue sky and sunshine all week and came home with a slight tan.
