This was our 8th stay at the Dar Al Masyaf and our recollection of the comfort, cleanliness, high level of service and excellent facilities did not let us down. We would particularly like to thank two of the butlers - Faridah and Mulu - for their attentiveness and help. We would highly recommend the Dar Al Masyaf as the best place to stay in… Read more

The exclusiveness has been taken away, you are felt like just a number in the system and no personalisation. Over due a facelift in the villas and if you still continue with the Butler please makesure one is available as ours was non-existent.

Picked up at the airport in a Lincoln Navigator which was lovely. We decided to take our boys with us this year and as usual we booked a suite to ensure we had sufficient room. We had an ocean suite which was huge and well appointed. Received a warm welcome and an acknowledgment of us being return guests which is always a nice touch. Location was villa 6 which was an excellent location and meant we could walk to Al Qasr, this was quicker than waiting for buggies etc. When we did book buggies and Abras the wait was 5 mins generally, so no hardship. We ate breakfast in Khaymat Al Bahar as Arboretum was busy. No issues with getting sun beds, even at 9 o’clock. We used the premium leisure club which was very good, although, it is not very big and gets busy. They really need to consider providing a bigger lounge as this now caters for both adults from the 5th floor lounge (now closed) and families. There are changes being made, especially with the butlers, we found the Butler not as present/available as previous visits. Still enjoyed it but the changes are starting to show and maybe not for better. Read less
