Did not expect this resort to be outstanding. From the moment we arrived we were continuously looked after. The staff were not intrusive but yet they were there when you needed something doing. The Arabian court has 6 restaurants but we only tried 3 of them (The Rotisserie, Eauzone and Nina's). Breakfast at the Rotisserie though nothing special, had a good selection of food from Arabic to English and sometimes the odd Asian was thrown in. Dinner at the Rotisserie was very good. The choice was great and if there was something special you wanted to eat, just speak to the chef Mr Najim and he will oblige. A pleasure meeting his acquaintance. The tenderloins and lamb were by no means of measly portions. When there, you must try the Arabic dishes. Had lunch at the Eauzone by the pool and the portions was huge. Our stay included a credit of 180Dhs pppn and this can be used (but not for drinks) at Nina's (an Indian restaurant and the Eauzone). The décor at Nina's was simply out of this world and the food was divine. There was 3 of us so we had 540 Dhs and we only spent 480Dhs. Again, big portions - so tip is share your meal. Shame the credits cannot go towards alcoholic drink. Beware, alcohol is expensive - beer is around £10 per bottle. You are allowed to use the other restaurants in the Palace hotel. We had breakfast at the Olives and personally I liked the setting there as it was more airy and brighter The 180Dhs credit can also be used in the Beach/Bar grill, Celebrities and Tagine restuarants. Unfortunately, we did not get a chance to try these restaurants. Tip - find out each night what the theme is for the restaurants as we missed out on an Italian at the Olives.
Rooms were clean, spacious and décor was well presented. Fruits were served daily. Only one pool each at the Arabian and Palace but they are big pools. Staff were attentive and they even let us have our own cabana though I suspect it was because we were in the low season. Even had chap cleaning our sunglasses each day. Nice touch.
In all honesty, this resort has got to be in my top 3 and I cannot fault what they have to offer (well apart from re-considering allowing us to use the credits on alcoholic drinks). There is a shuttle bus that takes you to the Palace hotel if you don't feel like walking and also a shuttle bus that takes you to the Aquaventure at the Atlantis. Find out from the concierge if your package includes a free entry to the water park. Well worth the visit.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Arabian Court is crafted in the spirit of the orient with dramatic architecture creating symmetry, amidst a landscape of fountains, walkways and lush gardens. The subtly angled entrance leads to the impressive grand gallery, the vertebrae of the hotel that links the two wings of the property and guides guests towards the 162 charismatic guest rooms and 10 elaborately styled suites, all of which are facing the sea, with private balcony or garden patio. The three restaurants and their lounges thrive on individuality. These include a journey from the grand kitchens of the past, to a modern voyage through the eclectics and vibrancy of the Near East and beyond. ... more less
