Hurghada was a disappointment. Just an ugly place, facing the sea. But what a sea! The hotel Movenpick, at Gouna, about 30 km north, was perfect.
So much perfect, that we couldn’t forget how artificial everything was.
Unique Qualities: Artificial lakes and channels create a pleasant oasis in the desert landscape. An artificial “natural lagoon” stands between the pool and the sea, where we have a wide, quiet and shallow beach, so shallow that getting to the water is almost jogging.
