                                                Quiet and relaxing location with a great pool.

                                                5 of 5
                                                Family of five (2 x adults, 1 x 15, 1 x 14, 1 x 12). Perfect for reading by and playing in the pool with easy access by taxi or Tuk Tuk to the Marina or Downtown. Pool cleaned and maintained every day, plenty of shade and air conditioning for a good sleep. Weekly change of towels and bed sheets. Transfers were in a mini bus and faultless. Wifi good. Temp was always around 40 but with a breeze majority of the time. My two sons achieved PADI Open Water through Emperor/Blue Brothers Diving (two companies, same building). Good communication with the owners. No security concerns within resort or airport. We had a great family holiday.

                                                Nice location

                                                5 of 5
                                                Villa Saluma is as nice as the pictures depict. We had a wonderful holiday from the moment we arrived to the time we left. We arranged transfers through the villa owner Ed and were met at the airport with no problem. We have visited El Gouna many times, staying in various villas in both West Golf and South Marina, and villa Saluma is right up there with the best. West Golf and South Marina both have plusses and minuses. South Marina is well placed for walking to both downtown and the marina, but has no views, and most villas are overlooked by apartments. West Golf is a little further out and outside of walking distance to downtown and the marina for us. Villa Saluma makes up for this with lagoons front and rear and a beautidul view over the golf course. The fact it is a little further out really isn't a problem as it is very easy to phone either a taxi or tuk-tuk from the vilaa. Just a point of note for parties of four (as we were). With the recent rise in the fare for tuk-tuks it is now half the price for 4 people by taxi (20LE) as opposed to 40LE for two tuk-tuks. The villa is well appointed with all you need to make your stay relaxing. The pool is excellent, clean and well maintained, something that has sometimes been a problem at some villas we have stayed at. Our favourite spot, especially in the evenings, was the thatched pergola by the pool. After dining we would return to villa, grab drinks, and chill under the pergola. We spent some very late nights under there, including sitting up to watch the sunrise. Ed (and Luke) corresponded with us very well and frequently, from our initial enquiry through to booking and departure. The local agent Nasser (and Emad) are excellent and can't do enough for you. We had an issue with the telephone and wifi during the first week but this was quickly resolved by Emad. If it's your first visit to El Gouna you will find lots of nice restaurants both downtown and at the marina. Two that we particularly enjoyed on this visit were The Orient in lower downtown, and Breeze in the marina. If you go to Breeze on a Sunday it is best to phone and reserve a table as it is Karaoke night and can get busy, but it's great fun. I perhaps shouldn't say this in case Ed reads it, but Villa Saluma is excellent value for money given the pricing. We would certainly book again.

                                                Lovely holiday

                                                5 of 5
                                                Stayed in Oceana for 2 weeks and found it to be a very enjoyable holiday. The property is in a very nice , quiet area and is fully equipped and very comfortable . The outside area is particularly nice, overlooking the marina. It is very easy to get around , with access to a phone in the apartment so you can book a taxi or tuk tuk to Downtown where there are many nice restaurants. Abu Tig Marina is a 10 minute walk and also has many nice restaurants and bars. Hope to be back soon to El Gouna and this lovely apartment.
