Once again, I hate England. Cold rainy morning - weather forecast for strong storms and flooding. The temperature is about 63 degrees. It's June. I'd kill myself if I had to live here. So off to the airport and of course our flight is delayed 2 hours. This is the only plane problem we've had on the trip (I think). Figures it's in the West. We're on …
... is significantly larger. They are interpreted as one because they were made from one block of one stone.
After the second gate of Karnak there was the hall of columns, 134 in total. The size and amount of columns was really impressive. The columns represented the garden of creation and was built in 1,300 BC during the rein of Ramses II. We saw two obelisks at this temple that were 29 meters high and weighed 323 tons and was made from granite from ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Maritim Jolie Ville Kings Island Luxor
Stayed in the Movenpick the second week in June with my boyfriend and had a wonderful time. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful and the hotel itself is spotless.
I am just back from Egypt after spending two weeks there. I really loved the country and the people, who i found to be very friendly and outgoing.
We have been 3 years running... have had the same lovely room twice. Going back AGAIN next Easter (be warned this hotel is addictive..!).. Must go back to try out the Infinity Pool that wasn't quite finished when we were there..thats our excuse...!! Photo of pool attached..
Best hotel resort in luxor
All i can really say is it really is the best hotel in Luxor. We are both glad that we chose this hotel over the Senesta St george as it was great. We did pop into the other hotels in town and although they were all nice the Movenpick just seemed to be right in every way. Quiet on its own island, Really friendly people, Lots of activities going on and tranquil. We are going back asap (3 months) hopefully as we made loads of friends there. Dont worry about the resort being a little way out of Luxor its really not far 10 minute taxi ride and you wont get any problems. Oh yes the taxi ride only costs £1 so no breaking the bank there but there is also a free bus and water shuttle if you dont want to pay. No problems with food or anything. Excellent in every way.
We had a great time in Luxor and a nice stay at the Movenpick. We liked especially its location, the garden, the staff and the food. The garden is an oasis of peace and allows you to relax after all the visiting. The staff is extremely friendly and always very keen to do its best and to help. It is a fact that the food is more expensive than in other comparable hotels (Sofitel Karnak,...) but it is worth it. Every day there is a theme (seafood, international, oriental,...) so there is a good variation and you always find something that you like. The chefs do everything to please and are great fun.
No Great chandeliers greet you in the foyer, but the bedrooms are Large and spotlessly clean, we had our 11 year old son with us in our room on a single bed and there was still loads of room.
Excellent all the way
First time in Egypt and really impressive hotel. Set on its own island, beautiful place. Staff were very good and very helpful. Rooms were outstanding. Quality and choice of evening meals was impressive. Good choices at breakfast. Quiet, despite some building work. Going again this year.
This hotel is wonderful. There was building work going on here when we visited but it made no difference to us what so ever. When the building is finished it will be wonderful. The hotel is restful away from the centre of Luxor on an island in the Nile. The views are stunning and there is ample space and oportunity to watch the spectacular sunsets There is a free shuttle bus and boat to and from Luxor and reception will get a taxi for you in a few moments. The food is very good and all the staff are helpful and friendly. There is a banking service for exchanging forign currency and a cash machine in reception. There is plenty of activities arranged if you want to be more enegetic but if all you want is peace then its yours. The room is comfortable and spotless as is the whole hotel. All the rooms are in groups set in lush gardens that are well tended and all have a terrace where you can just sit and relax. This is the best hotel in Luxor and you must try it.
Second visit to Jolie ville
We came here before on a tour and liked it so much we brought our friends separately. There were lots of repeat visitors so others feel the same. It is accessible for the town but very restful too.
The only fault was the building relating to the additional pool and new reception. When this is finished, the place will be superb.
One real complaint, the buffet dinner is grossly overpriced but it is easy to eat elsewhere.
Excellent hotel. We really couldn't fault it. We had an excellent time here. All standards were extremely high and the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. Beautiful setting and with a free shuttle bus running into Luxor town we were really glad we chose this. On its own island away from the town, it gives you chance to get away from the friendly, but persistent! street vendors. If you get the opportunity go here!
