    Movenpick Hotel

    El Gouna, Red Sea

    "Dear Simon

    You may recall that we had a one week break at the Movenpick, El Gouna in February. Just a quick email to advise that the trip from start to finish was excellent.

    Your resort rep, Mark (although based in Hurghada) was attentive and always ready and able to talk via mobile when required.

    As for the Diving, the dive centre team were excellent. The atmosphere was extremely friendly with all trips being fun filled while attending to all the necessary technical aspects. I would particularly like to mention Sahid (the Dive Master), Horace (always happy and smiling), Dolphin (who took us out on at least 4 occasions, in my opinion a really good instructor and guide); together with Renatta and Ahmed (Will Smith look alike). Although conditions at times on the surface were challenging arising from the strong North wind, all the crew made this for us a really excellent and enjoyable experience.

    The Movenpick Hotel as you had previously stated was great. The thing that stood out throughout was the friendliness of the locals, be they Hotel or Dive boat based.

    Nothing was too much trouble and all were always at pains to see that their guests had what they needed.

    We enjoyed the trip so much that we are now looking at the possibility of going again.

    Kind Regards

    "Hi Michaela,

    I wanted to let you know that we had an absolutely fantastic time in El Gouna. The hotel was great and the staff were fantastic; it didn’t matter that there were only 2 other Brits whilst we were there as we had a great time with the staff (and many of the German guests!).

    As for the diving, Natasha and I found the staff at Emperor Divers so helpful,supportive and encouraging; we couldn’t have asked for a better group of people to learn to dive with. Terry was a great instructor and we really felt part of the ‘dive family’ straight away – I would highly recommend them for people who want to learn
    to dive.

    We are now thinking about what to do diving wise and where to go next! We will be booking with you again!

    Many thanks for all the help and advice from everyone in the office which allowed me to organise this holiday in the first place.
