How would you rate the rooms? Exactly what is included in half board?
Only ever stayed in a Gold view room which are quite large. Worth the access to the lounge for breakfast, afternoon tea with small sandwiches, scones etc & a hot evening buffet with free alcoholic drinks from 5-7pm. We have managed on this option alone once without half board. Half board gives you breakfast in Cuisine plus lunch OR dinner there. Or an allowance towards Marco Pierre Whites or Frankie's (can't remember how much but it really is superb in either).
HI the rooms are great, a very good size, beds are so comfy, room is well equipped. Mosque and creek view rooms are the best. I think on the half board basis u get breakfast and dinner in the buffet restaurant.\ maybe you get credit towards the a la carte restaurants but you would have to check with the hotel
The rooms are modern. Love the shower area as well. Spacious. I've only stayed in a standard room (as that's comfortable enough for me). Unfortunately I have not tried heir half board package but I don't see any harm as you will have many dining options.
The rooms of the hotel are very impressive especially the view of the Grand Mosque, where the rooms are wonderful and the rooms are very impressive. The bathroom is gorgeous and the atmosphere creates an atmosphere of luxury and pleasure for me.
