With a spectacular private bay on the north tip of the Arabian Peninsula, you’ll be overlooking the stunning, sandy beach and calm clear waters that are ideal for a splash about in.

The restaurant has a ‘canteen’ feeling which is a bit disappointing and the menu was very limited as it was the same every day. But we had nice food prepared by Chef Suneel and great service by our waiter Bittu.

Beautiful surroundings, best pool in the UAE, friendly and competent staff. We had a very pleasant stay. The rooms are starting to be dated, a refresh would be welcome. All in all, excellent value for money, with some effort could be a leading destination in the UAE. Special thanks to our waiter Basile for his kindness and attention

We booked into the hotel and had a note with our reservation for an upgrade and late check-out. The girl that booked us in put us in the worst room in the hotel (we had booked a garden view but were given no upgrade and a view of a cement wall), this was despite the fact that our friends had booked and checked in at the same time as us with someone else and were given both an upgrade and a late-checkout without asking. The girl that booked us in had an attitude and wasnt very nice to deal with. After going to the reception again, a lovely girl named Lory rectified the situation. She was AMAZING! Had it not been for Lory, we would never come to the hotel again. Thank you Lory for being such a pleasure to deal with, and for making our stay an enjoyable one. No thank you to the other girl, who I prefer not to name. You could have caused the hotel a guest for life and should probably reconsider your role in customer service. Read less

The staff were very accommodating, Theo especially was polite and hospitable. The breakfast had a good choice and everything was fresh! Sitting outside was very relaxing next to the water feature. The staff even provide you with a coffee to go to set you on your way!
