Great place for a family holiday. Beautiful, tranquil and comfortable. The rooms are well proportioned and the service was excellent. There is a wide selection to choose from for breakfast. Pool side meals and room service can get expensive as is expected at such resorts. The food was very good though. For dinner it was cheaper to take a taxi to nearby Yas mall than eat at the hotel. There is a laundry service, supermarket and pharmacy at the residences adjacent to the hotel. Laundry was cheaper than at the hotel itself. The beach and pools are very beautiful. There is also a kids pool area however it is is charged separately which I did not know about. Overall an amazing resort. Read less
