Well……disappointed is all I can say…..was so excited to stay here as we have been to Dubai a number of times and not really ever done a resort hotel…had assumed good things due to the name and the cost,,,,let’s just say it doesn’t live up to the hype. … We arrived in the early hours and checked in….all good to start with…nice chilled drink and off to the room….well it went down hill from there. Humming noise in the room all night and the bed was soooo uncomfortable. Once daylight came we say the plant room and then also the disappointment of the room, everything so old fashioned and nowhere near the photos on the website. We went to reception and raised our concerns and were offered a new room. We were out for brunch so packed up and came back to our new room. The bed was definitely better and the noise gone but the room still feels old and tired. Items are not restocked and there is no special turn down service - would expect little gifts at night time in this level of hotel but nothing. As for food…..if you are vegetarian then good luck…I don’t expect to need to meet the chief in this day and age to get good vegetarian food…they attempted a burger and it was disgusting- there are such good alternatives now days there is no excuse. The pool area is lovely but they allow beds to be held all day which limits where you can go and the shade is at a premium. No mugs/cups in the room for tea to be made in (there is a kettle) and when used coffee they kept replacing with decaf 🤦‍♀️ No iron in the room And when requested had to wait three hours to get one!! Limited bars for the evening if you want a cocktail after 8pm this is not the place for you. No speaker in room which is the norm everywhere else. Good things….nice To get water at the pool (but everywhere does this now), everyone is very keen to make things better but at this price it should be awesome anyway…..omelette at breakfast is nice…..better buffet at Arabian Court hotel….nice to get glasses cleaned by the pool…..shower gel has a lovely smell… staff are all lovely and only doing what management has told them…. We have stayed in good hotels around the world and have been incredibly disappointed by this one……up your game one and only….dont let the pictures deceive you…there are better places to stay Read less

Excellent location and exceptional food. The rooms are very well decorated and equipped. The gardens are well maintained, along with the Pool Area, which is peaceful and nestled within the Garden. The Staff are outstanding at all levels: Front of House, Restaurant, Poolside and Housekeeping are first class and a credit to the O&O Management.
