Food both in the morning and evening are delicious! Especially we’d like to emphasize the good service of Ajmal and Chamod. Fast & very friendly! A small downside is part of the reception personnel and that hotel prices for drinks, food, etc. are way too high. Read less

You would think that buying an ultra all inclusive package would be without any restriction but this is just a marketing ploy at this resort. You are put up in the village which is at best a 3 star facility. Extremely limited selection of alcohol which is restricted to cheap brands which you definitely have not heard of. No access to the best pool… Read more
You would think that buying an ultra all inclusive package would be without any restriction but this is just a marketing ploy at this resort. You are put up in the village which is at best a 3 star facility. Extremely limited selection of alcohol which is restricted to cheap brands which you definitely have not heard of. No access to the best pool which is the sunset pool. How strange! The property is great but all inclusive is seriously a big joke here and thoroughly misleading. Read less

We took the all inclusive stay at The Village in Cove Rotana through Cobone. The staff at reception were very friendly helpful and accomodating to our request as we were 3 families and wanted the rooms closeby to each other. Thank you Makhbula (hope I slept your name correct). The rooms at the Village were very spacious neat and clean. The beds extra pillows blankets all are well thought of for family of 3. The pools are great and enjoyed throughly. Only disappointing was the slides we're not functional due to maintenance issue. The bars were great. Kids enjoyed the lollies and adults cocktails. Thank you Louie and Rimon at the village pool bar. We dinned at Cinnamon and Verandah restaurant. Food at Cinnamon was great with plenty of choices and good taste. Kids enjoyed the food at kids corner. Choices at Verandah were less compared to Cinnamon and also taste wise it was ok. The pacakage called for Verandah dinning but the hotel was generous to allow us to dine at Cinnamon. The location of the resort and beach access was amazing. The beach is clean and well maintained. during our stay we didn't feel we were in the UAE such was the built of the resort. Thank you Village and Cove Rotana for such a wonderful experience. The hospitality and generosity was awesome as compared to quite some staycation in UAE Read less

I celebrated my birthday in this 5star hotel and i am so grateful for the experience..though, we would love to swim in the beach but big blue jellyfish are visible..hoping that you could put a net baricade around the shoreline so that we can swim safely. Thankyou. hoping that we can visit the hotel again next time
