We booked a very last minute deal to Sofitel Karnak in Luxor to stay for one week.
On arrival we were very impressed with the hotel reception and received welcome drinks. A porter then took us/ our bags to our room. We had a Nile view and would definitely recommend this.
The hotel/ pool area was very clean and the range of food under the all inclusive board basis was fantastic.
I did not enjoy the entertainment in the evening - in Carters bar there was a singer from 20.00 - 23.00 most nights singing the same songs and taking a 30 minute break every hour and caught him eating at the restaurant a few times during this break by the end of the holiday it became a bit of a joke between customers as everyone knew he was going on another break to eat yet again haha! And during this break a pre recorded DVD was played - this included songs from last christmas including a Justin Beiber christmas track - hardly appropriate!
Hotel: If I can give you any advice please change this entertainment!
Would like to make a special announcement to Terry (one of the waiters at the poolside bar) for being an exceptional member of staff. He was very friendly, always happy to help, very efficient and constantly had a smile on his face and we gave him a nice tip when we left : )
Overall we were extremely happy with our stay however we were woken up from 3am - 7am about 4 of the nights due to the mosque and a dog nearby constantly barking this was a real shame as the beds were extremely comfortable.
All in all a great hotel and great staff just stay in the quiet section in the hotel away from the mosque and hopefully the evening entertainment will be reviewed.
