We spent here five nights and we were satisfied. The rooms are clean with good services. The breakfast was great with large selection of food...especially fruit! I love it. The pools are heated so you can enjoy it also in windy and colder days when the sea is cold. The dinner is expensive, you can select from various restaurants but...

We went for a weekend get away celebrating our anniversary. It was a great place. So many activities for us and the kids to do, perfect premises, friendly and professional staff and the quality of food and beverage was amazing. They managed to get us a baby sitter although we only asked for her 3 hours in advance and she...

We had a fantastic holiday here. We have a 21 month old and he loved it. The lazy river and kids slash pool were great. The buffet food, spa and scuba diving were all excellent. Our room was comfortable, kept clean and the staff were very good. Most of all it is a beautiful setting. A must.

There are three distinct hotels in the complex. We stayed in The Al-Waha. We really enjoyed it and you had the freedom to use the facilities of The Al-Bandaranaike which was next door. This made for a good experience and meant a wider choice of restaurants. Probably best to use the a la carte restaurants rather than the buffet restaurants...

We stayed at the Al Waha one of the 3 different resorts which make up the Shangrila Barr Al Jissah. The setting is amazing , between rocky bare mountains and a white sandy beach. The hotel was fully booked while we were there so service was a little slower than one would normally expect from the concierge, housekeeping etc but...

Negatives: can feel a bit trapped as isolated. Room service disappointing. Housekeeping not to 5 star standards. We would return but it's a bit too pricey for service and food levels. It's location is...
