Recenty had a weeks stay at the Maritim Jolie Ville. Had a fantastic week. Weather, rooms, communal areas were excellent. Stayed on a bed and breakfast basis and ate at the hotel on 4 out of the 7 nights. Food was good, but be sure to try all the eateries. The bar food at the Ascot bar is good value. Staff all very friendly and efficient...as long as they are adequetly tipped. take lots of £1 or £2 pound coins with you!!! Expect to be hassled when you go into Luxor town.
My wife and i upgraded to a superior room. This was an additional $40 a night. Having travelled extensively in the Far East and the Caribean I expected something a little special. Unfortunately, this wasnt to be. The room is simply an average 4 star room. The room was quite sizeable but nowhere near the 5 star standard expected.
A major problem also was that the hotel was practically empty and therefore lacked any atmosphere. I appreciate that confidence for travellers in any part of Egypt is low. All in all is was a very good holiday and would certainly return.
I cant help but feel that the hotel is expensive. the upgrade added approx £200 to the bill and simply not worth it. The drinks and food are not cheap also, but there are some deals to be had! Maybe, if they dropped their prices a little, they would get more visitors.
Give it it try though, all in all a fantastic, if expensive holiday
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Nestled upon the private "Kings Island" in the Nile that covers 660,000 sqm, the resort truly is an oasis of peace and tranquility. The idyllic, landscaped hotel grounds are expansive and home to the two main buildings, bungalows and three enticing swimming pool areas. The historic sights of Luxor, located only 4 kilometres from the hotel, can be easily reached by complimentary shuttle buses. The island is connected to the mainland only by a bridge and is virtually free of charge. This makes the resort an ideal location for families with children. The resort has been renovated in 2010 and extended by 320 rooms and suites in 10 elegant bungalows, new restaurants, a pool of 2,800 sqm in size and a SPA with fitness centre (from early-sommer 2011). ... more less
