    It's a perfect resort surrounded by animals. My son is only 17 months old and he enjoyed watching animals so much. There are various activities available and you will not get bored for sure.

    Resturents were not good, and very expensive. There were many security restrcitions. Beach was not nice since its on reclaimed land. Airplaine not avalible on daily basis, and the airtrip is limited only to Abu Dhabi Airport

    Very good

    The Animal watching experience was great Samak restaurant

    the amount you pay for the hotel stay is too much taking into consideration the hotel facilities and standards. for any activity you want to do from the activity list you have to pay extra.

    Hotel design, great staff, beautiful location

    Hard to get hold of guest services by phone on occasion. Tried from my room a couple of times and the phone just rang out with no answer.

    Very good

    I liked the privacy and atmosphere.

    Some of the staff were ignoring our request and some even avoiding comming to us espacially in the resturants (breakfast time and pool). Breakfast time if you come at 10:00 you are not taking care of and treated as not welcome. you need to keep calling staff to set the tables and get you your coffee. Room Service Calls at night were not available and calls were not picked up.

    Superb

    The hotel was of a high quality generally and staff were very attentive and friendly. The location was excellent offering poolside and beachside facilities. The range of activities offered a wide choice for all. Staff did attend to complaints quickly and reasonably.

    The Service from the poolside bar was very slow and their lack of understanding English was a problem at times and orders were not correct. The poolside restaurant food was not of a quality expected of the prices charged (steak returned as inedible). Our safari guide was late arriving and did not give us much time at the various places of interest. That said the overall stay was not spoiled by this.

    Friendly staff.

    Access to the beach is not close to the swimming pool with no umbrellas or sun chairs. No choice of food. The suite has a terrasse which is not private i.e. when sitting there, everyone around can see you. Poor design of rooms

    Superb

    the ambiance of the island is beautiful, location, horse back riding, the hotel is amazing

    the bath tub hot water handle was damaged, and the food was not that great.

    Exclusive

    Staff was very friendly, rooms were amzing. We went for the safari and really enjoyed ourselves. Unfortunately due to the low tide, we were not able to do Booked.neting. But this is nature. Early booking of all activities is mandatory as you might not get a free space. Next time we will stay longer to be able to use all facilities

    Unfortunately the beach directly behind the hotel is not to be used as there are huge concrete walls in the water. (Break-water). Further down, there was a space to swim, but the water was too shallow and stony.
