Everything was perfect: hotel, beach, restaurant, friendliness of the employees. Wonderful surrounding, quiet, respect of nature. Room was wonderful, very clean. Breakfast was perfect with local fruits.

We never saw our children while we stayed at the hotel! Between the pool, lazy river, putt-putt course, and indoor trampoline park, our kids were never bored. They didn't even need to play tennis (they have rackets for you to borrow). The gym is also a nice gym to work out in if you want to exercise. The hotel has...

My wife and I have a policy of not going back to hotels and destinations we have visited as there are too many others still on our bucket list. However, we broke this rule to return to the Al Bander and are already thinking of returning again. We first stayed at Shangri La, Al Bandar, in October 2015, when it...

This hotel is a five star experience. The rooms are spacious, especially the bathroom which is on the luxurious side. We only ate at the Al Tanoor buffet restaurant which was of the highest order with a great variety of excellent dishes- terrific breakfast and lunch. The beach front is in an outstanding location and is very suitable for young...

An outstanding resort far from the crowds. A great little beach and plenty of pools to use and relax by. We went for the half board option and were pleasantly surprised by the variety and choice at the dinner buffet. Room was very good and nice and quiet despite the hotels being pretty full.
