                                                      This was our 3rd trip to El Gouna but the first time in a villa and what an enjoyable experience we had! Our family loved this beautiful villa, having breakfast and lunch in the sunshine on the patio by the pool and chilled evenings under the pergola with a shisha. The airport pick up arranged through Ed went smoothly and we had a great welcome from Nasser upon arrival at the spacious and well equipped villa. The pool was a lovely temperature and well attended as were the grounds. We walked into downtown on the first night (about 20 minutes) but then made full use of the tuk tuk service (a bargain at 40LE for the 5 of us) and visited several restaurants and bars around downtown and the marina. With 2 days of boat diving and 4 days of relaxation our week went by far too quick so we look forward to making a return visit in the not too distant future. Thank you Ed and Nasser!
