We did had a wonderful time with excellent service overall. The room reserved for us has a breathtaking view with Emirates Palace and other palaces nearby. The dinner was fantastic but we enjoyed the sumptuous breakfast as well after our swimming! It’s highly recommended for family trip!

We enjoyed staying in this hotel: nice room, beautiful pool and private beach as well good buffet options in restaurant. Unfortunately there were constructions ongoing in the neighbourhoods and was very loud (tons of sand were delivered by big vessels just next to hotel). But overall we enjoyed our stay very much.

Overall it was a really good vacation. There are some minor details that you could change but nothing that reduce the overall rating. The service is still exceptional and the food is really great! As soon as the buffet will work as normal as without the COVID restrictions it would be back to perfect again. I can fully recommend the hotel.

It was a horrible experience. Flooding bathroom on the 1st night! We called maintenance, but he said he will come back the next day but did not. Housekeeping came to clean up the overflowing pool of water on the bathroom floor. Disgusting. We asked for tech support for TV and mobile connection From reservation staff and telephone operator, very discourteous, unempathetic, too slow to comprehend simple requests, the list goes on..... At one time my kids were told by another guest that my children are not allowed to swim in a certain area just because they are using that spot. I mean.....???? My kids were 10 and 7 years old and they can swim just fine and that pool area isn't even deep enough. The pool attendants didn't care. Sorry not going back ever. That experience was horrible to think that they have 5 stars. I have been to 2 and 3 stars hotel and the treatment i have been given were much better!
