Fujairah Rotana Resort & Spa - Al Aqah Beach
Ranked #4 of 5 Hotels in Al Aqah
Reviewed 1 October 2012

I have just returned from 8 nights at the Fujairah Rotana Resort and Spa.

Rooms - we had a premier balcony room and found the bed to be very comfortable. The walk in shower was absolute bliss. The room was adequate size and we were very pleased.

Staff - second to none and an absolute credit to the hotel. We found all staff to be very courteous, friendly and happy.

Bars - there was a lovely beach bar called Sharkeys with lovely rattan furniture on the beach. There was another bar called Tropicana and this was open until 1am. There could have been more entertainment in this bar as it seemed to have the same band each evening followed by a DJ and on one night a week a belly dancer.

Food - the breakfast was a good selection and catered for all nationalities but no bacon for the British (unlike Le Meridien next door)! We were all inclusive but didn't eat during the day so cannot comment on the lunches. The food in the evenings was nice but very repetitive. They could perhaps introduce a Barbeque night one night for a change.

Location - we have been to Fujairah before so know that there isn't really anything to do outside the hotel and you are 2 hours from Dubai itself so quite a distance for a day trip. The hotel itself is located right on the beach, which has a variety of water sports and diving facilities.

Pool - fantastic pool, which was chilled in the evenings and ideal for the high temperatures of the days. The pool had a swim up bar and a separate area for children with a slide.

Overall, we were very happy with the hotel and were sad to come home. We had one issue and when raising with the hotel manager, Hossam, he acted very professionally and efficiently and resolved our issue. There is a wonderful spa within the grounds and I had a fantastic aromatherapy massage one evening. The hotel stands in immaculate grounds and these are constantly maintained by a group of gardeners. The hotel is spotlessly clean.

Negatives : Not having milkshakes as part of the all inclusive package like Le Meridien and also the all inclusive package ending at 11pm in the Tropicana bar instead of 1am when it closes.

Also free wifi would have been nice. Le Meridien next door has an area in their reception where guests can use computers to log onto internet or their emails but Rotana charged £2 for 15 mins or £6 for an hour.

We would definitely return to this hotel and would recommend anyone to visit for a lovely relaxing break.

Room Tip: Premier rooms are excellent and the sea view rooms on the beach look lovely - we would perhaps try t...

Excellent hotel right on the beach. Great room, fabulous food at the Beach Bar and Waves. Mosaic Restaurant leaves a lot to be desired - far, far too busy with a buffet style. Save yourself the hassle of the breakfast bun fight and have breakfast Room Service! Amazing spa, good pool and long beach (full of oil though in February from strong tides and winds).

A birthday treat was a stay at the Fujairah, and from the moment we arrived to when we left we were treated as valued guests, our ocean view room was upgraded to a ocean view suiet just a couple of steps from the beach, very nice. We were on the A/I plan, really the only plan to have, as the drinks and food could have racked up a fair size bill in the 10 days that we stayed, All meals were taken in the main restaurant which had a very good selection for most tastes, coupled with the theme nights that had cooking stations prepareing your choice fresh for you, the drinks were promtly brought to your table for you and used plates were collected regulary, but it is a buffet only retaurant, waves on the beach was available at extra cost with a little discount from the A/I price. There were three bars to use, a sit up pool bar, sometimes very busy, and our favorite the beach bar with cool breezes of the sea, much quieter, after dinner the Tabu bar with some live entertainment was our usual spot, and maybe to call into the beach bar on the way to the room. All of the staff had a smile for you be it early morning or late at night, they were amazing, nothing was too much trouble,one luch time there was only chicken thighs on offer, l prefer the breast, no problem the kitchen was insructed to prepare grilled breast and shortly was brought to my table. l think that George the catering Director has his finger on the button at the hotel and runs a very tight ship, as well as being very charmiming
our thanks go out to him. A little downside was that there was very few british guests, so dont expect to mingle with them, but there were a lot of east europeans who are not allways the most polite people with faces as long as a fiddle most of the time, having said that it did not distract from the fabulous time that we were given. The 1 hour 45 min journey from Dubai is best forgotten bland and boring, do check the temprtures af the month you want to stay in as our September visit was up and maybe above 40 degrees. All in all a great time.

Room Tip: The two wings on the beach best ground floor a few steps from a sunbead.

This Hotel is cosy, comfortable and very nice modern bathrooms. Nice balconies on all rooms and a great pool/beach area. The staff was very welcoming and helpful with a smile. Unlike its modernistic neighbour it has a village style outlay which I loved. Pool and Beach are very nice and the opportunity to visit the neighbouring Hotel and restaurants is tempting. Lots of watersport options available. I am already planning the next trip over!

The Good -staff at this hotel were very good,The Bad-The smoking policy!!!! the only area where there was no smoking was the dining room,not enough relaxing seating indoors & nothing in the local area other than the hotel next door !!!& no evening entertainment other than a belly dancer who was ther every friday! The Ugly- Transportation to and from the airport to the hotel is a nightmere!! poor quality, dangerous transport, which goes to Dubai City Centre on a mon & Wednesday and local taxi's will "rip you off"!

Room Tip: Go to the Rotana in Dubai City instead
