We book an all inclusive package and upon arrival we were informed that room will be ready in 30 min and we will receive a call. After more than 1 hour of waiting, we went back to the reception to find out our room was ready, but no one has informed us. The check in process was quite slow as both the receptionists were tarinees and the hotel was busy. As we arrived in the room, we headed to the beach (4 pm) to find out that beach towels are no longer available as the hotel “run out of towels”. All inclusive package had 3 buffet meals, however the food was not very tasty. Only 1 type of beer and wine were included, quite basic for a 5 star resort. Our room was on ground floor (008) and it was located near a bar which had extremely loud music until 1 am - I felt like I had a concert in my room and couldn’t sleep. After all this, we requested a late check out, which of course was not possible. While giving my feedback at the time of check out all I got was “we are very sorry”. Very poor service for a well known brand as Hilton is. Read less

We spent 4 days here and really enjoyed it. We had booked half board which gives you breakfast and dinner buffet at the al maarid restaurant where they have different theme nights. It was off season so it was always zu to get a table and lines were not long at all at the different food stations. There’s 7 different pools and lots of deck chairs to use. There’s also a long sandy beach area. The gym has everything you need and is open 24/7. Service was always spot on! We checked on early at around 8am and staff got us a room with an upgrade so we wouldn’t have to wait until check in time at 3pm. Also on the check out day we were allowed to use all facilities until we left in the evening. Can highly recommend for a short trip! Read less

This is a fantastic hotel situated in Ras al Khaimah. The resort is situated in its own cove with a private beach. All the rooms are set in modern chalets along the shore front and are air conditioned, have private terrace, sliding doors, separate shower cubicle, mini bar in room safe etc. The views and amenities in all rooms were fantastic. If you don't like beach there are also 3 other pools available. The staff from reception to pool side to beach side to water center to bar to restaurants were also very professional. The city center is 10-15 minutes by car and there are local shops nearby. This hotel offers a lot more in terms of facilities, location and activities in and around the hotel compared to other hotels I have stayed in previously in the same area. I was on a solo trip and stayed here 5 nights and found this hotel to be really good. When I first arrived I was a little overwhelmed at the size of the hotel and the number of options available which I was informed about during check in. However a very friendly lady from Guest Relations called Fatima really helped me out. She walked me around the ground floor of the hotel for a while; pointing out different facilities and explaining what the hotel could offer me in terms of activities, different restaurants available and things I could do to ensure I made use of my time whilst at the Hilton resort. This is a great hotel to stay whether you’re alone or with family and I really recommend this hotel. And thank you to the lovely Fatima for being so friendly throughout and making my experience unique, including the fruit and chocolate platter which was delivered to my room on my last night! I will return to this hotel in the near future. Read less

Room, no matter that it is advertised as "family villa" is more of a standard one bedroom suite with lots of furniture. It had a nice balcony, but using it during evening was impossible because of mosquitoes (it is the same on the open air that time of the year). Beach...people that rate it high probably never seen good one. We were lucky to be there when water was full of jellyfish. Brazilian restaurant is nice, but cook clearly did not mastered different level of "doneness", as medium looked exactly the same as well done. A la carte dishes ordered were so plain that none of sauces saved the situation. Very nice service personnel and chefs that cook safe to eat, but boring food. Read less
