We stayed at Dar Al Masyaf for our 10 year anniversary. We got upgraded to a full sea view beach villa, without even asking. This was so nice. The staff is so amazing and friendly, they made our stay unforgettable. We had a wonderful time also with our butler Mr. Gomes (at villa 2) who perfectly took care of us and fulfilled all our wishes.

We stayed at Dar Al Masyaf for our 10 year anniversary. We got upgraded to a full sea view beach villa, without even asking. This was so nice. The staff is so amazing and friendly, they made our stay unforgettable. We had a wonderful time also with our butler Mr. Gomes (at villa 2) who perfectly took care of us and fulfilled all our wishes. I want to mention Mr. Isaar who first took care of us at the reception and also Mr. Rubens at check in and Mr. Rabindra at room service and many others. They were incredible. Unfortunately I am not good at remembering names, but again the staff is at highest standards in the world. Just excellent. The hotel and everything about it deserves 10 stars!!! We were overwhelmed by the architecture and how perfectly in shape and maintained the whole resort ist. If you are guest at Dar Al Masyaf, you can visit any other part of the resort and the other hotels as well. There are so many high level restaurants inside the resorts and around the souk madinat. Anything you wish for you can find there. They even offer buggy and boat service to bring you anywhere you lile. The breakfest was incredible, we had everything we could imagine. I am trying very hard to describe it on words, just amazing! Read less

The quality of food is very high and service levels are superb. The staff cannot do enough for you. Great gym facilities and rooms right on the beach. Would strongly recommend this location. We love the boat trips and buggies that run for guests between buildings. This is an excellent resort.

This place is unique in its Design and everything is managed in perfection. We loved to walk along the parkside, the beach or take a short trip with one of the boats. Although traveling with a toddler is not comparable to traveling as a couple, we enjoyed so much quality time at this place and it everyone was so kids-friendly and lovely. We took a suite with ocean view which we liked a lot. However, we feel that you can‘t make a wrong choice here. All the other houses we‘ve seen, seemed to be wonderful as well. What we also enjoyed were breakfast and dinners (with a great variation of different international food Styles), walking and playing at the beach. What makes this place so special, are all the little things in between: the outstanding friendly and polite staff, the welcoming basket with a great choice of pralines and exotic fruits, cooling bags with water bottles at the Pool and Beach, free ice cream at the pool and the list goes on… At the end - and I‘ve said this before about any other place - this vacation was far beyond what we expected. Thank you for this experience! Read less

There are plenty of restaurants of all kinds and getting around the resort by boat, buggy or walking is easy and enjoyable. There are plenty of spaces to relax on the beach and by the various pools Even now, during COVID, things are very well managed, it was good to experience something much more close to 'Normal" than we could have done in Europe. A great decision to come here for a while Read less

Had the absolute best time with our 4 & 2 yr olds. The pool was perfect, breakfast was amazing and the service was out of this world. Getting around on an abra was so much fun and the daily access to the wild wadi water park was brilliant.
