Which of these three 5* All-inclusive hotels for Christmas?

All are a comporable price (Maritim JV is cheaper for the basic courtyard room and slightly more epxensive for a garden view):

- Maritim Jolie Ville Golf Resort

- Hilton Sharm Waterfalls

- Xperience Sea Breeze

I'm erring towards the Martin Jolie because the pools look nice and the main one appears to be heated, but I'm slightly concerned why it has so few reviews on TA compared to the other hotels.

Our criteria: we are in our late 20s, want to relax, swim (so ideally heated pools), attractive grounds, decent snorkelling, somewhere quiet and not too many noisy children and being able to drink white wine peacefully.

We stay in the Martim Jolie Ville Resort & Casino in Naama Bay - REALLY nice - huge lovely pool..... and brilliant white sandy CLEAN beach for the hotel guests. Have you taken a look at that at all?

Xperience Sea Breeze as you won't get any kids there as adult only! Three of their pools are heated in the winter too.

I've stayed at the Hilton Waterfalls and the JV Golf and they are both very nice hotels, though I only stay B&B so can't comment on the wine!

The Golf is very spacious so you can easily find a quiet spot by the pool or the beach area. The Waterfalls has an adults only pool so you have at least one peaceful pool?

When are you thinking of booking as this will affect how busy the hotels are?

All three hotels you mention get great reviews so don't think you can go wrong with any of them really?

I've stayed at the first two, both about 10 times and have to say I much prefer the Golf - pics of both under my profile. Like Mutley, I only stay b & b. But do eat at the restaurants regularly, the food is super and the wine is good. The Golf has much bigger, beautifully kept grounds, for walking around. The pools are heated and there is one smaller seawater pool which is lovely.

Plenty of places for peace, quiet and privacy and excellent snorkelling, the sea will be warm enough. If if gets windy, there are plenty of sheltered areas and when the sun goes down you can still get the last of the rays at the Royal Wing pool, also see fabulous sun sets. I'll be there again in Dec myself

Any more info you need, let me know

Regards

We've booked the Golf for a week from 28th Dec. Looking forward to it, I just hope it's warm enough!

Hi

We are going to the Maritim Jolie Ville resort and casino this week. Can you tell me if there are tea/coffee making facilities in the room please.

Thanks Mandy

Mandy, yes, we've had them in the JV. Love it & have stayed 8 times.

Londonflare- we've been day guests at the Golf & thoroughly enjoyed it so our vote is for that out of the 3 you listed.

Regards

Wow, you do get about Barbarah!

We went snorkelling from the JV Golf, loved the platforms & loved the snorkelling :-)

Enjoy the rest of your holiday :-)
