We stayed 9 nights in the hotel end December, beginning of January. The room was ok,but if you compare the space to most hotels in Dubai, the room was quite small. Cleaning could have been better, dust on the small table, never been wiped in 10 days. The beach is wonderful, not crowded at all, so lots of space. The whole beach and pool area is beautiful, as you can see on the pictures that are used to promote the hotel. The sunloungers by the pool look very old and used, could use un update! Cleaning in the beach area can be better, small tables were not cleaned and sometimes really disgusting. One day we saw an empy spaghetti plate in the middle of the beach, it was there in the morning (clearly left the day before) and it was still there in the evening. Nobody cleaning whatsoever. We were there on a half board basis. Breakfast was crowded, but we managed to get a table outside (for breakfast and dinner) every day. You get a table quite quick, but then the waiting starts. Waiters running around everywhere, but it takes 20 minutes to get cutlery. When you manage to ask for coffee and juice, mostly the order isn't complete or wrong... some days juice in a Coca cola glass, some days coffee and/or juice in a paper cup. Never seen this before in a 5 star hotel, certainly not in a Hilton Hotel. In one of the photo's you can see the cheese that has not been stored correctly in the fridge...hard sides. Waiting staff is very friendly, but not efficient at all. Hot dishes on the buffet are cold (except for omelette that they cook freshly). Everything is cold. One night I had French Fries, someone served me (because of Covid restrictions), I said sorry but these are ice cold? "No problem, I can put them in the micro wave for you" French fries in the microwave? Wow...that is really what I expect from a five star hotel. Mac and cheese...no cheese in the sauce whatsoever. Variety can be much better, you better like chicken when going to this hotel. Food and beverage are not ok! When you complain that the food is cold or has no taste: they arrange a hot dish or a freshly cooked dish with more taste, but the next day the same problems all over again. NYE-buffet a large variety of food, but same problem. Warm dishes were mostly cold. Soft drinks were not chilled long enough and were warm, you had to add lots of ice to chill them. Because of Covid restrictions you had to make reservations for breakfast and dinner. Every day went to arrange. One day somebody was there to make a reservation for New Year's Eve. It took some time, which is normal, because the man wanted some information about the menu, seating, ... after 10 minutes I decide to go to the reception and explain that we have to go and I would like to make the reservation at the reception because the lady is busy with the gentleman. "oooh no, you have to make the reservation over there". "Ok, but I have been waiting for 10 minutes already, they are not finished yet and I need to go, can you just take note that room XXX would like to eat at 20h30 tonight?" "No, sorry". If you waited 20 minutes to get cutlery that morning, 10 more minutes to get the wrong coffee and have some cold and tasteless egg...I can tell you that is frustrating! After explaining that, the lady decided to help me anyway. When I made the reservation directly with the hotel I asked if the spa was open and what the restrictions were. "Spa is functioning normally" was responded. The Spa only allowed 1 person in the Sauna, 1 person in the Steambath and jaccuzi was closed due to Covid. In a hotel that has maybe 300 rooms or more? Come on... Add to that that the Spa is small and old. For a hotel that has "Resort and spa" in its name...disappointed. As a HH-member I can say this was by far my worst experience with Hilton.

It was my first time in this hotel but surely will return again. The hotel is very beautiful compare to the pictures online so you for sure will be very happy. The hotel has a huge private beach with a stunning Mountain View in the background. The breakfast is incredible. Suitable for couple, family and friends.

Look for place to come for holiday or just escape for staycation? Hilton is definitely place you should visit. You can choose if you would like to stay in private villa or in hotel it self. Pool is amazing, there is a lot of restaurants and beach bars around. Hotel also offers a lot of spot activities and amazing SPA.
