  • Family with children

    Excellent services. Very good and friendly staff with a quick response to your needs and demands. We experienced one of the best bed mattresses among all the hotels all around the world we have visited.

    The standerded of the services.

  • Single
    7.4

    Great service. Nature reserve. The room was beautiful. Lots of great activities - Booked.neting, cycling, hikes. Drive into nature reserve was good, very knowledgeable guides.

    Food was so-so, bit not good enough for this level of hotel. Very limited room service menu. Beach is reclaimed land, and is not great. The schedule of boat jetty's is limited, and you need to pay extra if you don't get there before 5:45pm. Overall, this property and services did not live up to the price. What is good s very good, but a lot could be made better.

  • Family with children
    9.2

    Relaxing location - excellent service. All staff were welcoming and generous with time and attention. Truly indulgent but worth it.

  • Family with children

    Very Romantic Get away.. Very friendly staff.. Very good room service.. Food ordered in room is cheaper than the restaurants below in the lobby.

    The desert activities cant be booked online and when we reached there all the activities were sold out(all activities are charged). The Swimming Pool was closed.

    The quite place and relaxing during the day. Its good for honey moon and make our special dinner in the beach.

    The tax fees was quite high for us as a local.

  • Family with children
    9.2

    A nice quiet 'getaway from it all' resort. From Dubai it takes about 4 hours, and you need to time your arrival at the ferry terminal in time for the ferry - as there is only one per hour. Then it's another 20 mins bus ride. But once you are there, you can just relax and sit back. The resort is 'boutique' which is perfect for those who don't want to have to fight for deckchairs around the pool. Staff is attentive and helpful, the restaurants are good and relaxed. It is better to plan a long weekend rather then a one night stay as with the drive, it was too short a time for us to stay.

    ++ on all your food and beverage - so all your bills had an added 16% fees on top. I also didn't like the fact that if you wanted an extra bed in your (large) room for a child, you would have to pay extra charge. I found this very disconcerning as most hotels will offer this FOC.

  • Older travelers

    Great service and amazing location. Flamingo's stand almost in front of the hotel and gazelle's walking through the garden, never experienced this before. Wonderful swimming pool.

    Internet in the room not good, many times no connection or long waiting.

  • Family with children

  • Older travelers

    I would recommend this holiday the hotel is fantastic the staff make you feel special they give 200% outstanding and the food was excellent I cannot fault this in any way and will be definitely be going back

  • Family with children
    8.8

    It's a great place to stay for a weekend; the activities (safari, wadi walk, nature walk, Booked.neting, etc.) which are well organised (but not free) add a plus to the stay.

  • Family with children
    9.6

    The perfect place to rest after a long work period away from city noise and to get in touch with nature.

    Every thing is perfect except for one thing, I love food but some of the food wasn't fresh made, like the indian Burata was already made and it's been reheated, and some cooked Vegetables are tastless when it combined with other dishes.

  • Group of friends
    9.6

    The activities are fantastic. We did the kyaking and mountain biking. Both totally worthwhile. The sea view room was spectacular.

  • Family with children
    9.2

    Very nice activities , nice and peaceful

    Didn't like the food greasy and potatoes not cooked throughly

  • Family with children
    9.2

    It was a unique place that offered a safe and comfortable facilities.

    It would be good if there was a supermarket and a pharmacy.

  • Family with children
    10.0

    We liked being able to be active - we walked, Booked.neted, played tennis, cycled and of course swam. As the children get older swimming and the beach is not enough. The staff on these activities were knowledgeable and enthusiastic and made it fun. It is expensive but well worth it for the location and the feeling of being away in a special place.
