“excellent family place”
Reviewed 19 April 2013

A really good place to stay with a family (or not!) After a day of hot sight-seeing and tout-fighting, its a wonderful place to get back to. The rooms are very comfortable and the food is fine, but what makes this a special place are the fabulous pools, friendliness of staff and position slap bang in the middle of the Nile. There are birds everywhere and you can rent a felucca out to sail down the Nile to get a closer look - my son especially liked the egret hoovering up breakfast remains and the hoopoes pecking away at the lawn. There are lots of reliable taxis waiting outside to take you on trips and the fares are set, so you don't need to haggle. All in all, a reasonably priced, immaculately run resort, although if I have a complaint, its that the food was a bit hit and miss and over-priced, but everything else was lovely

I stayed here with my partner and 10 members of my immediate family. It is a great resort for a family holiday. The children (8 - 3 years old) thoroughly enjoyed the pools, the kids club, the hotel boat and so on. The three pools meant that there is always somewhere to relax depending on the feel of the day and that as a couple on holiday we could avoid the children areas if we wished.
The size of the resort also meant that although myself and my partner were part of a group of 12 we also had plenty of time as a couple - sometimes we couldn't find the family even when we were looking.
Four of us used the spa, I had two massages, both were brilliant. My mum, sister and nephew also had massages - no complaints!
My partner and I ate at the Italian restaurant twice which we enjoyed, it has a lovely location by the Nile. We also hired the hotel falucka, which was very nice.
We used the hotel shuttle into Luxor almost daily - very handy. It is very easy to get a taxi in the morning, we didn't need to pre-book, which gave us more flexibility with trips to the Valley of Kings etc.
Breakfast and pool lunches were yummy and never left us hungry - the only holiday we've been on where we haven't lost weight! There are some fab restaurants in Luxor.
A great hotel for a family holiday and/or for a romantic break with a partner.
We were in the bungalows and my family were in the apartments.

Room Tip: Some of the bungalows have a Nile view, other don't. You might request your preference. Also, so...

Once again its that time to return to Kings Island, its our chill holiday im like a dog with two tails, its not as exspensive as you may think so take a look, with the lack of tourist police in Luxor stepping out of a hotel in town is a hassle waiting to happen, the Jolie Ville on the other hand is a brilliant retreat after a venture into Luxor with huge gardens lovely pools and the staff could not be more helpfull, Safe and secure in these uncertain times its ideal if its your first eygptian holiday, see you by the infinity pool i may even be awake.

The staff are friendly and efficient, the breakfast is extensive, the rooms are clean and comfortable, there is free wifi, the kids club is free and the kids can't wait to go each day- there is nothing to fault! We loved it. We are not the types to return somewhere, the world is too big for that, but we were amazed by the numbers who did, they got a very warm welcome from staff and we could easily see why they would keep coming back. We were there for 10 nights and did alternate busy days and sightseeing days. That was perfect as the heat and hassle is exhausting when you leave the hotel complex and it was good to do it all at a slow pace. Would certainly recommend highly.

Dear Catherine C from Paphos in Cyprus,

Thank you very much for having stayed with your family at the Maritim Jolie Ville Kings Island Luxor this April and for sharing your holiday experience with the WW Tripadvisor community.

I am very happy to learn that you have spent an overall fine time on Kings Island and that your children liked our kids club and the offered activities. Thank you as well for recommending our Resort to other families.

Even you are in general not returning to the same destination twice, we might be among the fortunate and see back on Kings Island one fine day in distant future.

Sunny regards from unique & spectacular Luxor.

We stayed with our family of 4 (kids aged 6 and 9, plus 2 adults) for 10 days in the beginning of April, it was our first stay in this hotel. We decided to stay in a double deluxe room and were very happy with that choice. The biggest hotel room we have stayed so far. With two extra beds for the children it was still spacious enough.
The children were very excited about the swimming pools which were great. They spent a lot of time having fun! Kids club was great - many different activities to keep them entertained. Trips to the zoo, art, crafts, papyrus drawing, treasure hunts and just playing with other children.
We loved everything about the hotel - the beautiful gardens, peacefulness, the sounds of nature - a very relaxing atmosphere.
The service was second to none - everybody was so helpful and friendly and efficient.
Check-In was the fastest one we have yet experienced in Egypt.
Breakfast was absolutely amazing - plenty to choose from. The waiters were quick to serve tea/coffee and very friendly.
We loved the buffet dinners int he main restaurant. The food was excellent, very tasty and plenty of choice. The team of waiters working in the evening deserves a medal!
The rooms were cleaned daily and to a very good standard - brilliant housekeeping team!

I have been coming to Egypt at least once a year for over 10 years and stayed in many hotels, but this has been the best experience so far.

I would and already have recommended this hotel to everybody ever thinking to visit Luxor. We just left yesterday and are already thinking about coming back again.

We stayed for a week in March, our second visit to the Jolie Ville hotel. Its is a haven of peace and tranquility. The gardens are beautifully maintained and room immaculate. Food choices were excellent and generous quantities.
Our special thanks to the friendly and helpful staff, especially at the Infinity Pool, the Nakheel Terrace, the Scherazade Terrace and the Ascot Bar.
Luxor itself is calm and not affected by the troubles in Cairo, Alexandria and Port Said.

We stayed at Hotel Maritim Jollie Ville 1-8 Apr 13 in one of the older bungalows. Although the room did need updating we found the bungalow well-equipped including air-con, a selection of pillows and a good bed also the place was immaculately cleaned each day. We stayed in block 'T' which was at the rear of the hotel facing the garden not the Nile but it was perfect for cool evenings sat outside and perfectly quiet away from the kids areas.

The resort itself was well-equipped for families and couples with separate pools. 2 infinity pools with great kids areas ensured the adults only pool was quiet and plenty of beds. There was even a running route and a small but well quipped gym for adults and zoo with rides for the kids.

Food was of a high standard. The buffet breakfast was open from 5 - 10 am with buckets of choice. The italian restaurant was reasonably priced and had a simple selection of pizza and pasta dishes. The 'La Fleur' restaurant had special daily menus that cost about £19 for a superb 3 course meal. The wine ranged from £17 for local Omar Khayyam or £26 Jardin which were both good up to £50 for imported wines. We wouldn't recommend full board unless you have kids as it restricts you to the buffet restaurant only. The room service prices were very reasonable and matched the restaurant prices. Also, there was a lovely lady at breakfast called Eiman who baked fresh bread every morning - you MUST try this!

All the staff from cleaners, gardeners through to waiters and managers were cheerful and helpful especially if you learn a couple of basic words in Arabic such as 'Shukran-thank you' and Sabah al-khair--good morning'.

Transfer too and from the hotel should cost LE 50 if pre-booked. We used a taxi and tour guide called Hassany Morressy (email address - hassany488@hotmail.com) who took us everywhere we wanted to go to all week and provided guides as required for a very reasonable price. He even took us to a lovely Egyptian cafe for coffee and out to lunch to check we were happy with the service he provided.

All in all a beautiful, spacious and quiet hotel where you don't get hassled and where you are definitely looked after. We are booking again for next year!

Room Tip: Block T - room 17 for sun in the morning, quiet and not overlooked.
