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

t think of anything bad to say about this hotel/resort !from A TripAdvisor Member
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
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 dessertfrom A TripAdvisor Member
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 Standardfrom A TripAdvisor Member

Disney Paradisefrom NvD
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.

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.
