This was our 6th trip for new year and found the usual high standard of staff, grounds and service. The grounds are a haven from the hustle and bustle of Luxor, an oasis of calm, a fabulous place to relax from the slog of all those tombs and temples.
The new year's eve meal was made by the enthusiasm of the staff and the whole ste up was beautiful.
We want to give special thanks to Mr Obady on reception, and the waiting team headed up by Said and special thanks to Rashidi and Mohammed Ramadan.
Good tips are if you can't stand the hassle out the front though a resolute no and walking with purpose works in minutes, go our the back where the staff go in and out. Yes there are mossies but buy some spray in one of the local shops and spray room before you go out for the evening - works a treat. If you don't wish to be woken by the call to pray at 5 in morning don't go to muslim country!
It sad at the moment because people think there are the same problems here as in Cario - there are not, don't be frightened, come here when all is quiet from the normal large crowds.
Oh and great location 2 mins from Luxor Temple and 10 mins from a great range of restaurants
