This time around, we got 3 villas for my Mom’s Birthday celebration and it was a very “suite stay” 😊 The villas are beachfront and worth the additional $$$. Jerry, the butler/buggy driver was very corteous and helpful all throughout our stay! For dinner, Pura Vida is a must try for meat lovers! Will definitely come back!

Value for money and good ambience. Liked the hospitality, good hygiene arrangements and cleanliness across the facility. Good and clean pool, nice food and drinks variety across all the bars at the location.

Wonderful experience at this lovely hotel. We had the sea view king room for five nights. Apart from a bumpy check in, the rest of the experience was great. We had booked through hotels.com, even though my confirmation email clearly stated breakfast was included, the gentleman at check in said it was not included based on their records. As a customer, I expect it to be checked and the booking I have should be honored. Sometimes miscommunication occurs so I would understand if this was the case, but the approach of the gentleman checking us in was very dismissive and rude. In the end breakfast was included but the check in experience was extremely unpleasant. I had requested for a quiet room, instead we were given a room right by the kids swimming pool. Again not ideal. We managed to change rooms, Omar at the check in counter was helpful in finding us a quieter room. Apart from the above unpleasantness, the rest of the stay was great. The hotel is huge with two main stretches of beach, great for long walks watching the sunset. The water was clear, we saw a turtle swim up pretty close to us one of the days which was incredible. There’s a saltwater swimming pool which was interesting. Rooms felt luxurious, bed was comfy, loved the bathroom which had a window to the main room next to the bath tub. Breakfast was also good with lots of options and good service. There were a lot of crows at breakfast which preyed on unattended tables. Not sure if this is seasonal but it was quite alarming at times. We had room service 2 of the nights we were there, it was pretty good. There isn’t much variety or options in terms of restaurants though, my boyfriend is dairy and gluten free so options were limited. We ended up at sol most often, which was the best restaurant there with a great vibe. Perfect for sunset drinks and dinner. Overall the service was great, setting is beautiful with mountains in the background. I would happily return given the chance. Keep up the great work Hilton beach resort rak! Read less

Very good location if you are in to sun bathing and pool/beaches. Cleaniness of the beach could have been better (plastic "comes" up from the sand). Breakfast was ok but limited selection. If you look for Muesli for example...they dont have it. They will offer you pancakes or waffles instead. This hotels offers all inclusive so the bars are packed… Read more

We recently enjoyed a lovely 3-night 'staycation', which was our second trip to Hilton Ras Al Khaimah... and we were blown away. We had a villa overlooking the sea, with a nice seating/dining area, a good size bathroom and beautiful outdoor garden and pool. The hotel and the villas spread along an extensive stretch of sandy beach, which is carefully cleaned and maintained by the staff. Friendly facilities, with areas for families with kids and teens, and spaces where adults can enjoy some quiet and bask in the sun. The 7 pools are excellent, specially the salt water pool was great. The resort grounds are so extensive, that it never feels crowded. Safety measures are in place and followed by all staff. The gardens are mature and very well maintained. We were very impressed with the service provided by the staff, there are team members working around-the-clock, even in the lower season; whether is maintenance, gardeners, pool and beach or food and beverage staff, there is always somebody working and keeping an eye to make sure the areas are spotless and facilities are ready for guests to enjoy. Our compliments to the housekeeping staff, who keeps all areas and guests rooms of this massive resort clean and takes the time to make nice fluffy towel amenities for guests in the rooms. Equally, the colleagues in the restaurants, where we savoured delicious, freshly prepared meals. You can see the management team has done a wonderful job training and empowering their staff; colleagues like Pratap, Moshi, Ines and their teammates always welcomed us with lovely smiles, every meal was lit by their happy, friendly faces and their professionalism. They are all keen to assist and make your stay a memorable one. The restaurant variety is very good; breakfast in the all-day-dining is efficient, varied and abundant. We tried the delicious Brazilian grill; fresh and yummy Poke bowls in Sol bar by the pool and we had our last evening at the Italian Piacere di Gustare... what a dinner, deliciously rich flavous and good portions, the seafood pasta was absolutely beautiful - praise to the Chef and his team. In short, the Hilton RAK is a total keeper, can compete without doubt against any 5-star hotel in the area. The only downside is that we couldn't stay longer, but we will definitely keep coming back!! Read less
