Stayed here for a week after a week cruising the Nile.

We chose a 'Superior' room with Nile view. The room was nice and large, with good drawer and wardrobe space, and a well fitted bathroom. The sliding doors opened onto a nice terrace overlooking the Nile, but I wasn't too keen on the fact that only the first 4m or so were private, and beyond it was a shared area - i.e. nothing to stop people walking across it and peering into our room!

The grounds are quite well kept, and the view over the Nile is wonderful. The hotel lies on the inside of a bend in the river, so the view is quite extensive.

Service was generally good, and sometimes very good. Staff were friendly, helpful and courteous.

Breakfasts in the main restaurant were generally good, but for my preference they would have benefited form more choice of healthy cereals, and more fresh fruit.

Lunches on the terrace (e.g. Chicken Caesar Salad, Steak Sandwich Nefertari) were really excellent.

Dinners in the main restaurant (buffet style) were OK but tended to lack variety.

We had one dinner in the 'La Mama' Italian Restaurant which is part of the hotel. This was very good, but a bit pricy by Egyptian standards.

The bar was a bit lacking in atmosphere, and seemed to be dominated by multiple TV screens.

It's worth noting that you can have free internet access for up to 45 minutes per day in the Business Centre in the lobby.

Hotel is in a beautiful location, with space around it unlike some of the slightly more central hotels, and it was lovely having the choice of pools. Rooms were comfortable and really clean - recommend superior nile view for space and the view. Service was good epecialIy in the front pool area. I agree with previous comments that some of the areas are rather tired.
Drinks and food are expensive compared to out of the hotel. The small shop by the front entrance is very good for basics. The hotel will arrange taxis / trips etc but recommend you contact Hazel ( Spirit of the Nile web site) for really good service and the chance to do something slightly different.

Room Tip: Superior Nile view for extra space and great view

We went to Egypt in December. We are platinum with Starwood so we chose to stay at the Sheraton Luxor Resort. We were given a beautiful suite with double door entry, 1.5 baths and nice lounge area and breakfast area. The bedroom was well sized and the bathroom was really nicely done with marble inlay etc. I have to say that the toilet was the best I have ever seen (or been on!) LOL. It had all these options for heated seat, duvet settings, blow dryer, massage etc. The view was amazing...We were on the Nile River and at sunrise you could watch the balloons over the West Bank. There is a club lounge with a few western style appetizers which was nice and they also had alcohol as well (not easy to find in Egypt)....The only drawback was that the hotel in a bit off the beaten path and not in the center of town, but we had our own driver so we could go wherever we wanted whenever we wanted. If you want to walk around Luxor Temple at night time then back to your hotel, then this isn't the hotel for you. Although it appeared to me that it was fairly industrial in the area by Luxor Temple so I'm not sure you'd find a 5 star hotel there anyways...something would have to give...either the hotel location or the hotel quality. By the way, Luxor is not a huge city. We were at the Temple in 5 min by car... I enjoyed this hotel. It was my favorite room in all of Egypt...very luxurious and comfy.... :)

Great room with a beautiful view of the Nile. Club lounge is modest, but very nice. Only real complaint is that they don't have a gym. Nevertheless, the hotel is a great value.

As other people have said, this resort hotel is located on the outskirts of Luxor but that was not a problem for us as we were able to make use of the free shuttle bus. The rooms are well proportioned and decorated to a good standard. The bed was a bit hard for my liking, but was able to sleep.

The food was a bit run of the mill, and if I never see beef bacon again it will be too soon! But the waiting staff were excellent - most of them seemed to be comedians...

The views over the river were stunning. I'd certainly recommend a river view room.

Would I go again? Well, no. The Valley of the Kings was a bit of a let down (it's so commercial and you are hurried through the tombs) and everyone is after baksheesh and it gets a bit tiring after a while.

Room Tip: Book a river view room. You won't regret it!
