Every hotel in that dimension has a mixed blessings. First at all i want to say grateful thanks to the hole concierge team, especially Danilo and Rughbir (the other names i unfortunately cannot remember), they do a wonderful and hard job especially with the buggy service. The food is very good, although it is quite noisy in the main restaurant but that what it is in a buffet restaurant. Around the pool and the beach there could be a little bit more attention on cleanliness but in total it is very clean. The beach lounger and all wooden elements would be benefit if they get frequently (1 time a year??) a bucket of paint, but i also understand that it is not easy to organize the whole maintenance service especially in the hot season with more than 40 degrees. A big problem are the birds in the part where the villas an the roofed kids pool is situated. The balcony, lamps and furniture is full of the excrementals and it is not really inviting to sit outside. Please find a way to deal with that situation. In total it was a great pleasure to stay at your hotel and we enjoyed our holidays! Read less

We stayed here in June 2019 for our family holiday. We booked the beach access villa with the dine around all inclusive. First of all the room was perfect. Especially with our daughter who is nearly 2, it allowed us to put her to sleep at night and have a separate living space to be in ourselves and when she napped in the day we could sit out the front and relax/sunbathe out in our private front overlooking the beach. We had an issue with our room when we arrived as it smelt of smoke, it was late when we arrived so we put up with it but we were immediately moved to another room when we spoke to someone about it the following day. Food was good. I was glad we went for the dine around all inclusive as I would have found it a bit dull going to the same buffet every night. The quality of food was good. Breakfast was nice, normally had a light lunch from the beach bars which was always pleasant, the evening meal was always very nice wherever we dined. Specific shout outs to the Italian, Brazilian and the Al Maeda restaurants which were all excellent. Facilities around the hotel were great. Lots of lovely pools and the beach was beautiful. The kids pools were spot on and has sun shades over them which were absolutely necessary in the heat. The thing that made the trip for us was the staff. Everyone in the hotel from the lobby, to the house keeping, buggy drivers, restaurant staff and lifeguards were so friendly and accommodating it was amazing. They were also great with our daughter too which was lovely. This was really impressive. We were very happy to have 10 days of doing not a lot at all. We had one day in Dubai which is quite a trek (about an hour and a half each way) but other than that didn’t leave the hotel. This suited us for what we wanted and the quality of the hotel, room and staff made this really nice. However I would say if you like a holiday where you get out and about and want to see and do lots of things, then maybe this isn’t the location for you. Overall a really great stay at a lovely hotel. Thank you to all the staff for making it so memorable. Read less

The beach access rooms are the hidden gems of the city! Incredible proximity to the beach which is cleaned daily. I had a wonderful experience with some friends but I’m sure it would be equally fun and private enough for families/couples. Highly recommend to try their chalets. Worth every penny!
