I was in need of a escape to a place like this out of Dubai. Amazing resort, infinite pool with magical view which brought lots of fun during our cliche photo session. Basilico restaurant granted compliments to the chef, delicious food and they were really caring with my gluten free request and it's really hard to find good restaurants with gluten free options for celiacs. Cinnamon was not operational to try it. Good variety of things to do around, we did the banana boat and was awesome! Special tumbs up for taking care of the cats through feline cafe. Improvements to be done related to the buggy availability and response during holidays in the summer. We waited a long time and had to walk in the sun with bags to the reception for check out.

The hotel has a breath taking view to the gulf and a mother's nature scenery. Their infinity pool has exquisite view towards beach. Its nice place in UAE to breathe some fresh air. Definitely will come back soon and recommend to our friends, family and colleagues.

This is an amazing 'village' - beautifully designed. You can walk through green areas or along the gorgeous beach. Safe. Our villa with pool was very private as we wanted to fully relax. I think the building works were completed around 2008 so the hotel is now a little tired but still fully functioning. We had dinner every night at Basilico - the food was good and the staff were very helpful, knowledgeable and kind - nothing was too much trouble. The Breeze Bar serves fantastic Turkish coffee BTW. Obviously, with Covid-19 affecting nearly every aspect of life, hotels are no different but the hotel was very clean so we had no worries about anything in that respect. We had a little niggle with the door lock of the villa but the response was amazing....it took no more than 5 minutes for someone to appear and sort out the lock. When we asked for extra pool towels, they also arrived very very quickly. It's not a glitzy Dubai hotel - it's a laid back hotel with lots of character and 5 star service. Yes, of course, we'll return :) Read less
