We always return to the Movenpick in Aswan :)
The hotel is lovely, Aswan itself is stunning.
Hotel: Attractive, Good location (boat into Aswan every 10 mins). Beautiful surroundings. Wildlife etc...
Pool: Cool, clean. The pool staff members are so helpful and good at what they do (best in Egypt). Pool bar menu has lots of choice and tastes fantastic.
Rooms: Large, Spacious, Welcoming, Fantastic views, Very clean, very 5*. Complementary drinks and cakes were a lovely touch.
Staff: Lovely and honest. Ali the porter always looks after us. Mary on guest relations is also an absolute gem - she will help you out with most things. It’s also cheaper to book tours through the hotel than to go with an agency such as Memphis (whose service this year was not acceptable - review to follow). Unfortunately though the most amazing hotel manager left this hotel a couple of months before we arrived...this was a shame and he made the hotel extra special. This is reflected as some silly 'rules' have now been applied by new management and they niggled me a bit. E.g, weren’t allowed to buy a bottle of wine and take it up to the room?? Something we always did on previous visits...shame. Though they do still have happy hour 9-10pm where everything is 1/2 price :)
We look forward to returning :)More
