I did not get as far as check-in 😬 I booked a total of 4 nights there for an upcoming public holiday in the UAE end of November. We had stayed there before so I was looking forward to it. I could not book the entire stay for points, as some of the stay was only available for cash. So I booked the first night for points and the remaining 3 nights for (a lot of) cash. Understandably, the points booking was for a slightly lower category of villa than the cash booking. As a Marriott Bonvoy Ambassador Elite, I was going we could get the same villa for the entire stay, given that the 3 days for cash cost 8 000 USD. They called me before the stay, to “check” whether I was aware that the 2 back to back bookings were for different categories of villas, and that they will insist we move after the first night. After a short chat, where I was told they “never upgrade” and that there is nothing they can do for us on that first night, I thanked them and cancelled both bookings. Bye bye Ritz Carlton Al Hamra 👋🏻😀 Read less

The food at the restaurant was nice, I enjoyed the mushroom truffle risotto and the eggs Benedict at breakfast. Read less
