Well, from early to check in to huge beds! We had an amazing stay. On arrival we were upgraded which was a lovely touch as we were celebrating our anniversary. Well it didn’t stop there, just check out the pictures! We were truly spoilt. The pool is amazing and the ceaser salad by the pool was 10/10! The only thing that I think would work really well would be an adult only section by the pool, that way you get a little bit of peace and quiet from the kids shouting etc. apart from that we will 100% be back!!

This was our first trip after covid and the hotel was extremely good at keeping things clean and had good protocols in place for all guests and staff. They do what they say.. The restaurants within the hotel are all to a very high standard. The only thing that could be improved if the evening food buffet, however the restaurants options are very good. Beach area was lovely with staff service being top quality. Hats off! Will definitely recommend Zabeel saray to all the friends and family. see you soon in September. Read less
