Great check in and a nice room, which was spacious and very clean. The service generally is poor compared to all of our other stays in Dubai! There appeared a real lack of staff. The buggy service is great, if you can find someone to drive one.........Loads of free buggies parked up at the side of the hotel but no drivers. The main problem is the restaurants as the main buffet one is being renovated, which has a knock on effect to some of the others. We were aware of this closure but not the knock on effect. Pure Vida - nice for breakfast (good selection of hot and cold food) but expect a wait to be seated. Dinner is now a buffet (due to the renovations) which was poor. Not a great selection of Luke warm food. Expensive for what you get. One visit was enough for us. Al Maeda - we were really looking forward to this as we love Lebanese food. However now it’s also now a Buffet.....We had a look but didn’t stay to eat as it looked really unexciting. Spoke to the manager but he didn’t seam to care. XO Bar - Good service but a rather dingy bar and stinks of cigarette and cigar smoke. Piaceri da Gustare - the best of the bunch, with decent pizza and pasta. However a rather small menu. Sol Bar - Poor service with average food. The Sunset bar- definitely the best service at the hotel. The guys were great. The gym was well equipped and very clean. Thought we’d try somewhere different for a change but we definitely will not return. I would also think twice about vining another Hilton in the near future. Read less

As a solo traveller, this hotel was ideal. Food available at convenient times, consistently wonderful weather, considerate and caring and happy staff, beautiful pool and beach facilities. Perfect. And shuttle buses available to go to local shops and a bus twice a week to go to Dubai City.

We went from 17-18 March for one night at the resort after we went to the mountain Jebel Jais. The staff at the reception was very nice. Interesting is that there was no temperature or symptom check at arrival. Also no signs to respect social distance? We had a room with ocean view. It was a spacious room with nice balcony. Normal badroom with bath. Everything you need. No fancy design stuff but solid good. The room was may be a bit old fashion but that is taste. Coffee and thee facilities. Unfortunately no Nespresso. The pools and beach are nice to relax. Still open. We wanted to have diner but that was a bit difficult. There is one buffet restaurant with limited choice most local food. Then there is an Italian restaurant in the main entrance hall. Atmosphere bit boring. Absolutely no anti-corona social distances as it was less then 50% occupied and then they put every body next to each other instead of one table between. The breakfast was buffet. As the regular restaurant is under construction it was closer to the beach. Again absolutely now social distance or respect to keep a bit distance from most tourists (most German tourists still). The choice is ok but there could be more healthy options with nuts, berries, yoghurt etc . The place is very nice to escape the big city, close to the mountains. Nice to relax at beach and pool as long they keep it open. The service is not 5*****. Also the food is not. But price quality absolutely nothing to complain. Hygienic these day’s good be better.
