Historical Traveller Reviews of Maritim Jolie Ville Golf and Resort Hotel

Great hotel, great staff

from BorgeM
We had a great week in Sharm, much due to the people at Jolie Ville, the wonderful service, great rooms and super food. Lots of great activities.

Golf Resort

from golfpronot
Great get away place in january - hotel was okay, room, food, entertainment, setting, etc. We came here for the golf - which beats pushing snow in Sweden!! Actually the course is okay, but the way it is managed, from the ckeck in experience to the way the course marshals keep play moving is first class. yes its slightly expensive, but you don't mind as you can see the precence of the staff and especially the management and Mr Dominik keeping play moving and providing a refreshment cart at every other hole! after 4 beers the novalty wore off but we will always tremember the smiley face of mohamed, but that may of been the beer!!! the food in the club house is good and the price of the shirts in the shop is good. I bought a nice Egyption cotton shirt for less than $30, be warned golf balls are expensive, i believe beacause they are imported, but anything made in egypt is good value!! cant wait to go back in september when the weather is really hot and snorkel off the house reef!!!

This hotel is absolutely fabulous! I cannot fault it on any level.
The staff are great, very helpful and always smiling, they remember you and make you feel like that you are very special. The resort feels cared for and is immaculate, we were blown away with all of it!
We stayed in the royal wing and this was amazing. The room was huge, the bed was huge and the bath was huge! Very clean and lots of storage space. We had fresh flowers and fruit in the room when we arrived and these were replaced from time to time! I thought that this was wonderful - such a lovely personal touch and really made a difference.
The pool in the royal wing is huge and very well kept - even on cold days it was lovely and warm! Even the guy who hands you your towels was so nice - remembered everything you said and made a point of making you feel like you were the only guests! All of the staff just couldn't do enough for you.
The beach is amazing and the snorkelling is out of this world!
The food is great, we visited the buffet restaurant, the Chinese, the beach bar and the Bistro and service and quality at each of them was second to none.
We played golf one day and that was brilliant - a great course and the staff are fabulous! Dominik was absolutely brilliant - very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. He even arranged a buggy ride around the golf course before we played. You can tell that he (and all the other staff) genuinely love their jobs and this makes all the difference!
If you are after a nice relaxing break with everything at hand, this hotel is the answer! Jolie Ville Golf has definitely got the 'Wow factor' in our opinion!
We weren't sure about visiting Egypt before we stayed here, but would definitely go back to this hotel. we highly recommend this fabulous resort!!

Loved Hotel in Sharm

from fayegrafton
Me and my partner stayed at the Movenpick Jolie Ville for a Week in November 2007.

The weather was lovely around 34c everyday but it started to get dark early around 4pm- which was fine as it is there winter.

The room in the hotel was very clean and very spacious, huge double bed which was very comfy and clean. Mini bar in room changed everyday and prices reasonable as you need to drink plenty of bottled water and pop.

Hotel had around 6 large swimming pools and we went down about 9 everyday and seemed to get sunbeds very easily. there is a large pool area with disco, games and entertainment during the day which is great for families, and the other pools are much quieter joined together by a lazy river which goes around the complex. There is a more luxury swimming pool seperate from them all at the rear, which had a lovely pool bar, much quieter which we found on the second to last day and i would reccomend that one if you want to relax. There is a beach area ajoined to the hotel which is a 5minute walk, over man made wooden bridges which looks like something out of disney!!! There is plenty of areas to sunbathe, have massage, three pool bars and eating areas, the only down side is that you cant walk into the sea because of the protected coral. There is three man made jetty's that you have to walk along and then go into the sea. We usually went there about 4pm for a drink and watched the sun go down. The hotel really does have beautiful grounds.

The restaurants in the hotel: -

There is the main buffet type restaurant where you have breakfast which is very good, fresh area where food is cooked for you omeletes, pancakes, waffles, fresh eggs, think i had omelette nearly everyday which were goregous! have wide choice of fruit and cereals, toast etc.

Evening time - the main restaurant we ate there a few times, my parnter enjoyed the food, but i prefered the other restaurants. Wide choice of salads, starters (but I wanted to avoid them as people say its the water they are washed in can make you ill), tables of different breads, every night is themed night so they will be lots of different dishes, chinese,mexican, italian etc. There is a fresh area again that makes about three different dishes fresh in front of you so you can choose ingreidents. They have entertainment which is russian singers and dancers and this restaurant which are awful but a good laugh as they are that bad at trying to sing english songs.

Chinese restaurant - which was very good we ate there twice - would recommend a visit to this one.

American style diner which serves pizza, burgers, grilled meats etc, we didnt eat there but people recommended it when we were there.

Lebonese - This is just in the VIP area over the road a 5minute walk and this was also very excellent

You get a 50LE discount if you are half board from any of the speciality restaurants.

There is also and english style bar, a luna disco (which was quiet until late) and a newly open shisha bar which is outside has floor cushions etc, very relaxed has a big screen with sport etc on, and we spent the end of most evenings there.

We stayed in the hotel for all of our stay as we were told you got hasselled if you went into the town to buy things, but we only wanted to relax and the hotel was that nice we didnt want to spoil it. The hotel has a limo that will take you to the town for about £5 or £8 return which i think sounds very reasonable as it is about 10-15min drive. There is nothing outside the hotel, if you wanted to do anywhere you would have to get a taxi, but the grounds in the hotel are big enough to go for a walk.

We went for a look around the golf course and it looked a very good standard, my partner was recovering from a broken bone so couldnt play but they happily drove us round in a golf buggy to let us look round, just to let him know what he was missing!

We found the prices reasonable in the hotel, but we have read people complaining saying its expensive to the rest of egypt. It is a 5star hotel and you are getting 5 star serivce and food, for example a litre bottle of water is £1 but in the town you could probably get it for 50p. Three course meal for two in one of the good restaurants with a drinks each around £35 in hotel.

Nether of us suffered from the egyptian tummy which I was really worried about as i normally always get ill, we were just careful not to have ice, and i avoided salads but my partner ate them.

I did get really bad insect bites, so would reccomend taking insect spray, i think it was wearing a skirt in the evenings. They have a doctor and a nurse on call in the hotel 24hours which is great so I got some cream off them.

We booked this as a last minute holiday but we really had a fantastic time and the standard of the hotel far exceeded our expections. The hotel has been taken over by maritim hotel chain and they have a website so you can look at the hotel etc.

We had a fantastic time and would say it would be somewhere we would return to again.

Maritim Jolie in Sharm - fantastic. Great for kids.

from LondonDooley
Just got back from Sharm and had an amazing time and wish I was still there. Went with my husband and two kids aged 3 and 1 and it was great. The hotel was fantastic - lovely big room with a super king bed then also a single for 3 year old and cot for 1 year old. We had two balconies and were put on ground floor as requested. There is a big pool and a small one for kids (both heated) which even my 1 year old could stand up in. Our room was a minute walk from pool, 2 min to restaurant and 3 to beach. All staff really helpful and friendly especially as we learnt a few words of Arabic (just from our guide book but they really appreciated the effort).
Breakfast restaurant had a kids area with play stuff so we could eat in peace which was great. Never used kids club but it looked good and they did stuff on beach etc so weren't stuck in a room all day.
Glass bottom boat was great for kids and you could see loads of stuff. Cleopark not brilliant - a few slides closed and ones that were open had freezing water so kids screamed when we landed but baby bit and pool were warm. Also we met a couple with a 6 year old who had an amazing time so maybe it was because ours were too young.
Only ate in hotel for breakfast as so many good restaurants and all really cheap and lovely. Food at breakfast was good though and loads of choice.
We nearly booked to stay in sports area (annexe) but found room in main area at last minute and have to say am really glad we did - the main road looked scary and a lot further away from beach and pool.
Would reccommmend this place to anyone - really brilliant.

Loved it!

from Bopeep1947
I have just returned from 2 weeks stay in the Maritim Jolie Ville Golf
Hotel which I thoroughly enjoyed. My room (which was booked for a period when single room supplements were not payable), was large, quiet (overlooking an tranquil courtyard) and well equipped. Bedding and towels were changed every day and the room was kept spotless by an excellent room cleaning team. The grounds of the hotel and the lazy river are a real delight. I ate in all the restaurants and, with only one reservation, enjoyed the food immensely. (My one reservation concerns an attack of Egyptian Belly, which may have come about from eating in the hotel's Chinese the night before or may have come from elsewhere). The hotel, which is out of town, offers a free courtesy bus to reach Nama Bay, but is only a £3 taxi ride from where the action is anyway! This was my first trip to Egypt (but not my last) and I was delighted by the people who are, in the main very helpful, friendly and charming. The hotel staff were exceptional. My experiences led me to ponder, on my reluctant trip home, when we lost our grip on our city centres at night - I felt totally safe, even in the back streets of Egypt ian towns at night, which is more than I can say about any UK city!


from GSkipper
We came to Sharm from Cairo by plane, arranged by Servo, a travel agent, following an International Conference in Cairo. My daughter, who'd been on the Sinai, suggested we'd be better off in Dahab but the conference suggested Sharm, and the hotel. We were disappointed! There are two Movenpick Jolie Ville Hotels in Sharm. The one is the golf resort (where we stayed), which is newer, and there's one on the bay downtown in Sharm. First of all, the location of the resort, near the airport, and about 5-10 ride to downtown, is not really very good, if you want to stroll along the boardwalk, shop, etc.. It's very isolated. We stayed in a superior room, 200yds from the main hotel, opening onto a lawn area with its own pool. The pool was nice, but very cold water (October). Nothing very special about the grounds near our room. The grounds immediately behind the main hotel were more ornate, lots of greenery, etc, with lots of areas for children. Also a disco, that young people travelling with friends of ours, said was "dead" at night. One of the restaurants had a "floor show" with russion girls dancing around, but it was tacky, at best. The food was surprisingly terrible. Breakfast was a huge buffet but it was chaotic, lots of children, people shuffling around, and the quality of the food was just gross (pancakes stale and hard, fruit not ripe, cereal stale, milk warm, pastries stale, etc, etc.. The movenpick is famous for ice cream, and it was very good, but one scoop was about $5 US, which is crazy for Egypt. The cost of everything at this hotel is very high. You must barter hard with cabs to get to town for less than $10 equivalent and it's only 5-10 miles away. There is essentially no beach at this resort, but rather after walking about a mile through the resort and going down lots of stairs you come to piers out over the bluest water you've ever seen. The Red Sea is awesome. I've heard the coral near the hotel is mostly dead but we didn't snorkle there.
All-in-all I'd definitely avoid this hotel. If I went back to Sharm I'd stay along the bay. Maybe I'd try the Novotel or one of the many nice hotels along the boardwalk. The Jolie Ville Golf is very overpriced, bad food, too far from town, no beach, and no experience of the Sinai Peninsula. I'd go to Dahab next time.

Service? What service? 5 star hotel? 2 star service (if that)

from MarkBlackman
Im a seasoned traveller and I now live in Canada where service is number 1. I have never had reason to complain to this extent before and I feel that as a tourist, its right that the general public get to know.

From the front, it looks great. From the inside and around the back, it looks grand. The rooms were ok but lacked the requested sea view we asked for. A wall and a view of other peoples rooms wasnt what we had in mind or what we booked 4 months prior.

When we arrived we were given two rooms approximately 600 metres away from each other and the other room (which they kindly informed us of 'coming back tomorrow for') was non existent until 'the Manager' word was mentioned and suddenly we had our three rooms.

Food. Terrible. Even in Naama Bay. When eating at breakfast tou must be careful that they do not take your plate away whilst you are still eating. You may find that a spoon or fork may be deemed too dirty at the point of time when the waiter comes round 'to clear tables' and he will promptly wip it out your hand before you finished your mouhful.

None existent eye contact when paying bills or ordering food. We found that no one paid any particular attention to personal needs and most waiters and staff prefered to speak to their co workers than oneself, the customer.

Information in brochures is false to the point of lying. Newspaper service: a local chap gets them off the planes and sells them on to the hotel concierge who sells it on to you at a premium. Jacuzzis: a bath tub for one person with chlorine added. Taxi Service: A bunch of lads driving the company vehicles at high speed, making gestures to customers that they are busy by reving the engine when getting off, with little concern for passengers wellbeing. 'Variety of restaurants'? Pull the other one. Different dining rooms, same awful menu, no atmosphere or eating experience

Taking children is not advisable. I took my 4 year old nephew to the 'beach' (advertised) to find about 10 foot of sand. Accesing this area is NO GOOD for elderley people or children. The steps are far too steep and splinters from this wood made area were far too frequent.

My advise, along with 7 other family members: Dont go here!

Sorry Movenpick, but maybe you should stick to selling ice creams!

Upgrade if you can to the pool view rooms.

from jandiorbabe
You will have to pay $30 extra a night for the pool view rooms unless you want a concrete courtyard view opposite other guests, its cheaper to upgrade before you get there. The grounds are like the garden of eden, with full-time gardeners. The bridge that links the resort to the beach and the beach/cliffside area should win an award for its stunning Robinson Crusoe design (did Disney design this?). It really is outstandingly beautiful, especially when the sun goes down and the whole area is lit up with different coloured lights. Dont miss the treasure cove bar with its wonderful views over the sea and the ladies toilets next to it with full glass front so that you can look out at the red sea while you sit (dont worry, its a one-way mirror). I visited a lot of hotels in Sharm while I was there and thought this was one of the best. Happy hour twice a day, cocktails only £2.50, Ascot Bar 9-10pm. Funky little nightclub tucked away in the centre of the pools, designed like the inside of a cave with boulders and waterfalls, a bit of a minefield if you were drunk! Lots of private areas to sunbathe in the grounds and by the sea. There is some building work going on at left side of resort and above but you can escape as the grounds are extensive. The pool and lazy river are amazing and heated, unlike many hotel pools in Egypt. We loved it, my husband enjoyed the Golf course, it has bermuda grass, a lot of lakes and wildlife. Bathroom a little tired but fantastic power shower. Great breakfast. Tip the waiter 10LE's every morning (£1) and you will get treated like royalty. Would go back, but only off-peak when its quiet.

Nice hotel, but not really on a 5 star level

from oller
All in all we enjoyed our stay at this hotel and were quite satisfied. But after all the enthusiastic ratings, we were slightly disappointed in some points.

Rooms: We booked a standart room. It is spacious, comfortable, with all the facilities you need. The furniture is solid, but unspectacular. Bathroom also large, but looked a bit tired. Beside of the size I would rate the room rather 4 star than 5 star as it doesn't give you the feeling of luxury and there are no such extras like fresh flowers, fruit basket on arrival or marble in the bathroom. As far as I know there are 3 different categories of rooms: Standart rooms are located around inner courtyards - except of the room on the opposite side you don't see anything else from your room. Not much privacy if you like to sit on your large balcony! Mountain view rooms have a nice view of the Sinai mountains. The most expensive rooms are with pool/seaview. But don't expect too much, you will just see some sea far away on the horizon! I guess the latter category is also even larger. For the next stay I would probably choose the mountain view rooms.

Restaurants: For dinner we have eaten only one time at the hotel, at the Chinese restaurant. On that evening they had a chinese and sushi buffet which was excellent. During the day the poolside restaurant is convenient for a light lunch. There are a few other restaurants which we didn't try. Breakfast Buffet was just great: huge choice and some changes everyday. Prices are cheap compared to ours, but if you eat in a restaurant at Naama Bay it will be even a lot cheaper. For instance: Bottle of mineral water 1,5 liter costs at Moevenpick EGP 12, at a restaurant outside the hotel about EGP 6, in stores EGP 1.50 - 2.00. Big differences if you regard the amount of water you have to consume with this climate!

Pool/Garden: Just amazing! Palmtrees, lots of other exotic plants and flowers wherever you look. A lazy river of about 350m which takes you on a roundtrip through the whole garden. Really beautifully designed and probably the strongest point of this hotel!

Beach: It's all man made, but they did it in a good way with many terraces - some bigger and some just for a couple of deck chairs to give you some privacy. Snorkelling just off the shore was great with lots of fishes and clear view. Relaxing beach bar with good music.

Service: Everybody is very friendly (as almost everywhery in Egypt!) and they try their best. But not always up to a 5star level. For instance there was no second room service in the evenings.

The hotel was not even half full at the time we were there. So our stay was very quiet and relaxing. But I guess even if it is full there is plenty of space around pools and beach and also in the restaurants. Most of the guests were Russian, but they didn't bother us. Be aware that outside of the hotel there is nothing to do (this might change in the future as they are building a shopping center close by). You have to order a taxi or take the free shuttle bus into naama bay if you want to go out or do some shopping.
