We touched down in Luxor on May 30 and were immediately struck by the extreme poverty as we drove through town on the airline coach.
The hotel was a welcome oasis in the middle of the busling city centre.
It was a fantastic and comfortable stay with our two boys. Many activities on offer and cou
dnt do it all justice.
Spent almost all afternoons and mornings in the pool. The staff were at hand to help with just about every request we had.
Near the end of our stay I asked the concierge to point me in the direction of fresh dates and not only did he provide directions,but also produced the dates at the hotel the very next morning.
Thank you Mostafa Salem ,you are a star!
Another highlight was the towel animals found on our bed one morning as we returned to our two interleading bedrooms. So amusing to find a flowery crane and an elephant !
The location of the hotel is very good as it is within easy reach of LUxor temple,Luxor Museum and also Karnak Temple.
We thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast ,and the setting was quite opulant in the Opet restaurant.
As we admired the gardens and the beautiful view of the mighty Nile daily,it reminded me of a walk through Agatha Christie's novels.
A big thanks goes to smiling Mahmoud who took us to Luxor city centre by water shuttle. Lovely views of banana island and the east bank.
We stayed on till 6 june and enjoyed the valleys of Kings and Queens as well as the temples Karnak and Luxor.
Undoubtedly a fantastic hotel with plenty of amenities and smiling faces. We will definitely recommend it to family and friends.
We appreciated our wake up calls in the morning,in particular to get ready for our sunrise hot air balloon trip.
Hope to return soon again.
