May 2011 Archives

"We last stayed at the Movenpick in El Gouna two years ago, and chose to return to celebrate my husband's 40th birthday. We had a wonderful holiday in 2008, and our return trip did not disappoint.

I emailed the hotel prior to our holiday and asked for a birthday cake to be delivered to our room on arrival, and to have a room close to the main reception area. Both of these requests were accommodated by the Customer Services team.

There has been a significant programme of improvement works at the hotel, which is still ongoing, but is not at all intrusive. Most noticeably, the man Palavrion restaurant has been given a facelift. The breakfast buffet is excellent; a wonderful selection of breads, cakes and pastries, yoghurts and fruits, cheese and sliced meats, cooked breakfast items and a chef to prepare eggs any way you want them.

El Gouna Dive Center sm.jpgWe booked a dive package with Emperor Divers, who are based at the hotel. The dive centre used to be run by Dive Tribe, who were a great outfit. Most of the staff remain the same and the transition to Emperor has not changed the excellent service. There has clearly been some capital investment from Emperor. The staff are friendly and the boat crew are really good to the divers, helping them off with their scuba gear after a dive.

The resort was extremely quiet when we visited. It seems that the civil unrest in Cairo is keeping tourists away from the Red Sea resorts, but I can assure anyone who is unsure about travelling that El Gouna has been completely unaffected by the troubles in Cairo.

So, if you're looking for an incredibly relaxing holiday in the sun, I really can't recommend El Gouna or the Movenpick highly enough."

0511 joran.jpgRecently, 13 year old Joran Buwalda from the Netherlands qualified as Junior Master Scuba Diver with Emperor Divers Hurghada.

Two years ago Joran, with his father Mattijn as buddy, did his Open Water Course in Cairns Australia and got hooked on diving. Joran was then lucky enough to receive Advanced Open Water training from Mohammed Hashem at Emperor Hurghada who has a gift for teaching junior divers.
