HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 13 March 2017

The staff are charming, and the rooms - or at least mine, a junior suite - boast views across the gardens and beach to...

Good facilities but below average service. You don't feel you're in a 5 stars hotel. The scenery is nothing fancy. Tends to cater for older average age (40-50+). No bars in the evening. We had a suite that cost us AED 3,500 per night and no special treatment offered. E.g., it takes no less than 10 min to check in....
