Egyptian Experience Resort Luxor
Ranked #15 of 39 Speciality Lodging in Luxor
Reviewed 10 June 2013

The temp was between 52 and 57, to hot to sunbathe. Of the 600 odd vessels on the Nile only around 60 odd are running due to the lack of tourists. Of the ships not running the engines are running to power the bilge pumps and these are 4 abreast pumping out diesel fumes, a permanent haze! If you go ashore you are pestered to buy this or that, ride a taxi or buggy and they will not take no for an answer. We got off the vessel in one instance and returned within 5 minutes, just could not take the pressure. We have cruised the red sea a couple of times with out a problem. Will we return? no! even if Luxor manages to survive. Tipping, is ridiculous, they want money for smiling. We were due to board the Nile Explorer, but due to lack of people we made up the numbers on the Legacy.

Room Tip: This was a cruise, The rooms on our vessel were spotless and comfortable, complete with hairdryer an...

Always Egypt - excellent services for the deaf people - please look up in Always Egypt and the holiday is breathtaking and very supportive for the deaf people with some excellent service. The Staff on the Boat were 1st class and very friendly, My advise to anyone going is to just go on the trips that go with the deal, we went to see the pyramids and had to wake at 3:3o am and coach to Luxor Airport , fly to Cairo then sit in traffic jams for hours only to be blinded by a sandstorm at the pyramids , we finally got back to the boat at 12:45 pm , a very long day away from a lovely boat...

The Nile river is the most famous river in the world. It was such a pleasure to stay at this hotel and see the river. The staff were super friendly and nice, rooms had great views and were very modern and comfortable!

First class, modern property in a quiet location overlooking the Nile. All staff were very helpful and friendly and arranged various trips out, taxis, etc. and made good recommendations for restaurants. The apartment was very clean, tidy and newly furnished. The pool is delightful but is unheated. Located out of town with a 15-20 minute taxi ride into Luxor but taxis are low cost and can be arranged through the resort. All in all very good value.

We were a little nervous about staying at an "apartment" in Egypt, but overall we're glad we did. The apartment was clean and nice to have all 5 of us in one place.
We booked an airport transfer through the resort and based on other reviews did not get the welcome pack but asked the driver to stop at a supermarket on the way in for 10 mins where we got cereal, milk, yogurt, water, etc. (I would recommend doing this as it worked out well).
We didn't use the pool as it was very cold, but it looked nice.
The staff were all very friendly and helpful.
We really didn’t want to do an internet bank transfer beforehand as we just were unsure of the security of the transaction, the owner agreed to let us pay in cash (brittish pounds) when we arrived. We stayed in a 2BR for 3 nights and the water & electricity bill ended up to be about 70 le (Egyptian pounds).
We never actually went inside any of the hotels in the main part of Luxor, but from the outside they didn’t look very spectacular. While we were a bit out of town, it was nice to be away from the chaos and only cost us 30le each way to get a driver (booked through the resort) into town.

We stayed here for 3 nights and really enjoyed it!! It was my husband and I with our two college-aged children. The facility was very clean and new. The pool was beautiful and overlooked the Nile. There was an additional charge fore tp, paper towels, etc... We did not purchase from resort but bought supplies in town. We also arranged our own taxi for a better price. Our train was late and in the end the office charged us an extra fee for waiting at the office for us to arrive since we arranged our own taxi--this seemed very unnecessary. Be aware, this resort is not in town, and requires a 12-15 minutes taxi ride to get there. We had to haggle a lot for the taxi price and finally found a great driver we used for the rest of our stay. It was quiet and peaceful at the resort. I would recommend it if you don't mind being out of town. The resort recommend a Chinese restaurant in town that was excellent! We even ate their twice.
