“Reasons for coming back!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

Breakfast by the Nile, walking through beautiful, spacious gardens, sunbathing by the infinity pool and watching the world sail by on the Nile. Later, cocktails as the sun sets and then end the day by fine dining at 'La Fleur' where the staff are so pleasant, helpful and professional.
The location is excellent, the views across the Nile are timeless and there is no better place to relax.

Room Tip: The rooms are average, but the bungalows all have their own outside area with table, chairs and sun...

Dear Lorraine V from Brighton UK,

Thank you very much for your recent visit to the Maritim Jolie Ville Kings Island Luxor and for having taken the time to write a short review on Tripadvisor.

I could not agree more with you about the relaxing atmosphere and the timeless views across the Nile from any place in our Resort, it is indeed like from another world! We also very glad that you have enjoyed our services and the friendliness and professionalism of our team members. Thank you!

I hope we will have the opportunity to welcome you back home very soon again and wish you in the mean time all the very best. If you then try one of our Deluxe Rooms or even a Suite, I am positive you will like the size and arrangement very much.

With sunny regards from splendid Luxor

Wonderful setting on an island in the nile - slightly out of Luxor town centre. Beautiful grounds with lots of birds. 3 pools to choose from and a very good buffet selection at breakfast. Ordinary rooms are quite basic so it's worth upgrading if you can. Free shuttles into and out of town and fixed prices for the taxis that wait outside. Nice gym and friendly staff. Will definitely be returning to this hotel.

I am writing this review outside my room watching the sun go down on the Nile. We have been here a week and have another to go. What can I say, this is our 8th visit and we don't normally stay in the same place twice but the Jolie Ville is the first place we head for serious relaxation. The staff are exemplary, food fantastic and service second to none.our room is immaculate and is cleaned to a very high standard everyday.
For anyone worried about trouble in Egypt please be reassured Luxor has no trouble and is very safe, my husband and I walk around the streets quite happily at night, the locals are great people.
Lunchtime I would definitely recommend the restaurant at the infinity pool, today I had pan fried sea bass on wilted garlic spinach with vegetables for around £9, amazing! If you don't fancy anything on the menu the chefs are more than happy to cook up something you like.
We travel all over the world but this place really does it for me.

Room Tip: The new rooms are lovely but we always prefer to stay in the bungalows at the North end of the islan...

Dear Andrew S from London,

Thank you very much for having returned back for your 8th visit to the Maritim Jolie Ville Kings Island Luxor and for the very elaborate and nice comments posted on Tripadvisor.

We are very pleased to read that you have enjoyed your stay on our Island and that you were happy with the accommodation, the food quality and the services rendered. Comments like yours are always a great motivation for the entire team as it is our goal to provide utmost holiday enjoyment & relaxation to our esteemed patrons.

I would like to thank you as a "REGULAR" guest who are always supporing the hotel over the past 2 years. Thank you as well for mentioning how safe it is to travel to Luxor, the TV pictures (for making it more interesting/sellable) do not represent even 99,5% of the Egypt which is quiet, peaceful and awaiting so desperately the many visitors to come back and to help this peoples revolution to succeed!

Thanking you once again for your visit, we are looking very much forward to welcome you back home on Kings Island again in the not so far future.

I remain with,
Sunny regards from unique & spectacular Luxor.

After visiting the many temples, tombs, forts etc we ended our holiday with spending two nights at this magnificient resort in the middle of river Nile.
Excellent check-in with detailed explanation of the large grounds - you need a map to find your way around, but everybody is helpful. Even the gardenboys all great you!
The rooms are huge and so is the bathroom with all the amenieties you expect in a 5star hotel.
It is so peaceful to sit outside your room and just read a book or alternatively you can walk down to the river Nile and watch the birds or the occasional cruise ship going past. Don't miss the unforgettable sunset around 5pm.
Breakfast buffet is large and they even have fresh fruit and not tinned stuff as in many other hotels in Egypt.
We tried the Italian Restaurant which was very good.
And last but not least, the do have free and powerful WIFI which works in very corner of the hotel, Well done!
Overall a great place to relax from the hustle/bustle,

It is an resort built on wide area. It has been a woderful experience of last night in Egypt. It may be palnned to stay couple of more days stay in this hotel. It is built on a very very wide area. It has a small wonderful zoo, sunset point and so many wonderful excitements within the boundary. Rooms are very very spacious with a patio, in excellent condition. Room service or response to calling for cart for going from one place to another place is almost instant.

We stayed at this hotel earlier this month. Staff were extremely helpful and attentive. Anything requested appears very quickly. The gardens are gorgeous. I loved the infinity pool and the feeling of swimming in the Nile.We liked the Italian restaurant although by Luxor standards it is quite expensive. Tourists are in short supply in Luxor, however we felt very safe. Hotel is a great base for exploring the wonderful sights nearby.

Room Tip: We had a room near the Nile and the infinity poolwhich was great

Just returned from 7 nights at Jolie Ville and it was excellent. We were able to book two adjoining deluxe rooms which were very large and extremely comfortable. The hotel gardens and views are stunning and the staff were superb. A great place to stay and with three great pools, the 2 kid-friendly ones are large infinity pools with wet play areas. Sensible prices too - worth getting the dinner vouchers - La Fleur exceeded expectations and no request was too much. The buffets were sufficient but, if I had any criticism, perhaps lacked a bit of flair and creativity.

It's worth getting in to Luxor for a meal if you can too as it's very cheap to get there and back and takes about 15mins in a taxi of which there is a constant source at the hotel.

Also, I'd strongly suggest booking the early morning hot air ballooning through the contact in the hotel reception - we managed to bolt on a trip to the Valley of the Kings after landing and we were handled very well. Price for 2 adults and 2 kids (7&9) for the ballooning was £100, total. It costs more than that per person in the UK! All in all and excellent family resort hotel in a great position and with excellent staff.

Room Tip: Go for a deluxe in block 1 - easy to walk to everything and the gardens are more established.
