It is a nice hotel, the rooms were very clean and staff were friendly but wouldn't say it is 5 star. The major disappointment is the pool area, which only gets the sun for a few hours in the afternoon and even then there is only about 20 sunbeds which are actually positioned in the sun. The beach is nice. The sports bar had a good atmosphere.

We have stayed here for a weeks holiday and had a lovely stay, our first impression was it was not 5star that Dubai hotels offer, very clean but it was a little shabby in places and the evening meal felt you were eating in a cafe, can’t fault the food but the drinks we had to pay for at evening meal were so expensive £14 for two orange juices yet you could have as much as you want for breakfast! The sun doesn’t reach the pool so we had to use the public beach which was not the best, you are provided with a bag with a big beech mat and towels in and can also have a umbrella, they offer a free shuttle to there private beech, which is lovely we can recommend.All the staff were lovely especially merry and Noel they went above and beyond for us, thank you, the hotel is in a good place to reach buses taxis,trams and metro, we would stay again at this hotel as it was good value for what we needed.😊 Read less

Try and have as high a room as possible. If you can afford to do so pay for Club Lounge access as you will obtain most of the extra cost back from the savings on breakfast,afternoon tea ,drinks and cheese /meat platter in evening with wifi and 3pieces of laundry a day.

No choice of cocktails in the drinks package and only 2 gin selections Mostly one member of staff serving and often had to request drinks. Poor pool very little sun and beds. no private beach with sun beds Have a beach bag with mats towels and parasol which is good but expected more having experienced other hotels. Should probably have researched more prior to booking as pictures can be very deceiving. Must stress cannot fault the staff. Read less
