All Inclusive with Thomson Holidays through First Choice.
This was our second stay at Iberotel, Luxor.
Our first stay was back in 1997, when it was Novotel, Luxor.
Due to health reasons, we had been unable to travel abroad for four years and after years of bad weather in the UK, we desperately needed some guaranteed sun, so where else could we choose to go in January, but Luxor.
Always had good memories of this Hotel and our second visit did not disappoint.
Iberotel, Luxor is without doubt, situated in the best position in Luxor, being close to all amenities and of course, being right alongside the glorious River Nile.
Not being a large Hotel, the wonderful Staff all get to know you and all go out of their way to make your stay a memorable one.
Iberotel is a beautiful, clean, homely Hotel with a relaxed, friendly atmosphere.
The rooms are spacious and spotlessly clean.
Our room benefitted from a fabulous Nile view, overlooking the West Bank, including the Valleys of the Kings / Queens, which are all lit up at night in spectacular fashion.
There are beautiful gardens leading from the Hotel Bar and Restaurant down to the side of the Nile where the pool area is situated on a floating raft, right on the Nile - a fabulous position !!!
As we have mentioned, the staff cannot do enough to make your stay a memorable one and we feel as though we should thank by name, a few of those lovely people:
Front Office Manager - Mr. Mahmoud.
Reception - Mohamed.
Restaurant - Ahmed and Hafez.
Pool Area - Hagag and Adel.
Bar Area - Mohamed and Mahmoud.
It has to be said, Mahmoud in the bar is without doubt, the shining star in Iberotel, Luxor.
Mahmoud goes way above the call of his duty to make your stay a memorable one.
He is always pleasant, friendly, smiling and happy, nothing is too much trouble for him.
Having seen all the sights of this area in previous years and having done the length of The Nile on a cruise four years ago, we were just looking for a relaxing break, doing nothing but chilling out for two weeks.
Iberotel, Luxor was the ideal choice for this holiday as, being centrally situated, we could easily walk into Town and have a good look around the market area, five minutes away.
One highlight of our holiday, was a hot air balloon flight with "Dream Balloons" over on the West Bank, where we flew over the Valleys for almost an hour - a fabulous experience that we would certainly recommend.
Thank you Iberotel, Luxor !!!
