stayed at Arena during December . Its about 22 degrees during the day, but down to 12 in evening. This is obviously not Arenas fault but the bar is wide open to the outside at night . Every one huddled around in coats trying to look like they are enjoying themself.
The place is run down and grubby but not dirty!!
Lots of mozzys about and with bad fitting windows, drain vents and not so good AC
it was a real problem
The staff are mostly very friendly and helpful.
Will I come back .? In summer (march to October)maybe but price would have top be very keen.
There are lots of better places at similar prices

- Arena Inn Hotel is a convivial mid-sized El Gouna hotel offering all the amenities expected of a Red Sea holiday resort. Built along the saltwater lagoon that separates the island of Kafr El Gouna from the Downtown mainland area, the hotel offers a peaceful waterfront setting a few steps from all the facilities and services of the fully integrated resort town of El Gouna. Cafés, restaurants, supermarkets, shopping galleries, and evening entertainment venues with live music and shows are all within walking distance. The hotel's infinity pool overlooks a swimming lagoon bordered by a small sandy beach. Arena Inn guests also have access to the hotel's sea beach on nearby Zeytouna Island, reached by shuttle boat or bus, where some of the best snorkeling in El Gouna can be found. Arena Inn's main restaurant, Laguna, is built to resemble a wooden ship's interior. It boasts splendid views over the turquoise lagoon from its panoramic wooden deck. The Arena Inn counts 144 hotel rooms in three main buildings facing the lagoon on one side and the golf course on the other. This Red Sea hotel is family friendly, offering entertainment opportunities, a kids playground, as well as connecting rooms for added convenience. It also welcomes couples and groups of friends.
