What do you expect in the middle of the middle of the desert? A three hour bus ride from Aswan to suddenly find yourself in a thriving township in the middle of the desert yet on the shores of the beautiful sparkling Lake Nasser. the resort was much more than we expected. Sure the rooms may not be perfect in... More

We stayed at the place for 1 night, just for Abu Simbel and I wasn't sure what to expect. It's such a sweet hotel with gorgeous Nile view and swimming pool. The room is minimal but does the job but it probably needs some update. The food was actually nice too.

The good: stunning views of Lake Nasser, easy access to the temples of Abu Simbel, beautifully located and large pools with a pool bar/snacks easily available. The bad: rooms falling apart/windows not fitting, rotting wood in bathrooms, pool water cloudy, breakfast uninspired, poor maintenance throughout. Given the location - ie desert - none of the bad points would really bother... More

Beautifully located and landscaped, an oasis of peace & quiet. Staff went out of its way to accommodate, especially Ashraf at the poolbar. Absence of wi-fi and internet (only one old little terminal in lobby) forced me to unwind and I loved it ! Rooms are a bit stuffy, but they have a terrace right on the lake, and even... More

This hotel is magnificent, with beautiful views of Lake Nasser and serene and beautiful grounds. It's certainly quaint and the rooms don't have the most modern, up to date furnishings, but I loved them. They all have large, domed white ceilings (presumably to collect the stifling heat!) and effective air conditioning, and we had a little deck overlooking bougainvilleas and... More

There is not much to choose in Abu Simbel. this hotel is overpriced even though I negotiated on the spot, $161 on a DBB basis for 1 adult and 1 child. It should be half that price. The rooms are quite basic and the a/c very noisy, bathroom very tired. Food is forgettable. But the 2 pools are fantastic. So... More

So, you want to go to Abu Simbel but don't want to be limited by 2 hours at the temples? Or, you want to see the Sound and Light Show, but don't want to be in a boat? Then staying here is your best option. Brother and I shared a room in Dec 2011. The rooms are exactly how they... More

Felt like a celebrity renting out the whole property as the resort is so large and spread out. Saw a few people only although on the reservation list at the front desk it stated that there were 17 people booked in for the night. Very easy to access the hotel by the Egyptair shuttle bus that heads to the temples... More

We are in our 60s and retired. When we travel we enjoy comfort and upscale hotels. This hotel did not disappoint us. We stay here for 1 night on May 23, 2011. A short flight from Aswan-about 30 minutes-and we're here. As we get ready to land the plane flies over the Sun Temple of Ramses II and we get... More

We booked our stay through Orbitz (via the TA site) and pre-paid our one nite stay for $246. A few days before arriving I received my reminder confirmation e-mail from Orbitz, which I printed out. When we arrived my wife waited in the taxi with our luggage while I went into register. It turned out we were the only guests... More
