We celebrated our wedding anniversary in this wonderful hotel and I owe this review to every person who made our stay in this property a memorable one, especially, the front office team.
The check in was very smooth and the front office manager Ibtissam personally greeted us upon arrival and escorted us to our apartment while explaining the hotel facilities.
The front office staff were very helpful and very professional, Rabie and Steven from the concierge were very helpful and they showed a great can do attitude.
The hotel facilities are fantastic ( great gym, superb pool and jacuzzi, clean beach with relaxing beds...) the food was delicious and excellent variety, we had the chance to try both Momo ( all dining restaurant ) and the Italian restaurant, the dinner was served by Mayla, she was outstanding.
Overall, excellent hotel in a great location in Fujairah, the view from the apartment is breathtaking.
Again, thank you so much everybody for making our stay a very memorable one, We definitely recommend your hotel for everyone who wish to stay in fujairah.

A perfectly reasonable hotel, well maintained and very clean. Nice private beach and large pool which are well supervised by the lifeguard team. Good quality breakfast buffet. The staff were very attentive in all areas of the hotel, in particular the housekeeping who seem to work very hard.

One of our worst experience
Although they have a good facility, nice swimming pool and attractive beach. But staff are really rude and don’t know how to communicate. Swimming pool heater didn’t work and water was cold. Access to the beach is only until 6:00 pm and pool is until 7:00 pm. We can understand this but can’t at all understand that we should leave the entire area and go to reception or room. The whole area is closed from 7-8 and after 11 P.M. no facility to be used. No complimentary red tea bags at room, when we asked they told us we should pay.
Fruits for kids (Apple) at the swimming pool area was not allowed.
Many many other incidents during our stay.
My advice, it will be excellent to go as business trip not for family vacation.

Diabolical from start to finish….although the best bit was getting in the car and driving back to Abu Dhabi.

Positive:
1) hotel is nice, rooms are decent and good sized

Negatives:
1) front desk staff rude and incompetent
2) didn’t mention anything about breakfast which we had pre-booked
3) all breakfast staff are rude and looks like they’ve been told off by their mum or dad! Maybe management gives them a slapped bottom before their shift!
4) hallways smell of strong toilet cleaner
5) coffee was like brown water rather than coffee itself BUT was offered some other coffee at cost. You must know the coffee is rubbish then to offer something for a price?

Besides the negatives there is at least one positive (silver lining)

100% a 4 star hotel if staff are replaced

This is our second stay in this hotel, and my main concern is the access to the pool from the hotel/apartment rooms. There is now no access directly from the lobby to the pool area unless you find a security guard who will let you out. We were told that we had to take the elevator to the basement and then walk along the underground corridor and up a rather treacherous, winding staircase. My son is special needs (autism), and those stairs are not safe. It’s obvious that this set up is an afterthought. You stay in a hotel to relax and enjoy - not to be scurrying through the bowels of a hotel. Plus, if a security guard does let you out to the pool area from the lobby, you have to go down to the basement to get the towels! The pool lifeguards are now running from the pool to the basement and back to bring towels for the hotel guests.

We booked 11 rooms for 2 nights to spend the weekend. The hotel is clean, the rooms are nice and spacious, the breakfast was good, the swimming pool is good and the beach was wonderful. We had a good time and everyone enjoyed their stay. We had a couple of down fall points, we spent around 45 minutes to check in, and I mean literally 45 minutes. Other check in desks we moving fast but ours was very slow. We also requested that all 11 rooms to be next to each other, but we were thrown all over the place, in different floors and away from each other. We complained to the manager who was unresponsive and uncooperative and said sorry for the inconvenience but we can not help the situation. The second point was at breakfast, coz of the covid-19 situation they canceled the buffet concept and applied the set menu concept which basically means they will serve you basic dishes like fruit, bread, jam and honey, cheese and vegetables, and they will take your order if you want eggs. Obviously some of the basic dishes were served on some tables not others and I had to ask for things every time. I really don't know what went wrong but it was annoying to keep asking for things whereas it should be served at the first place. I spoke to the Indian manager who was understanding and cooperative.
Apart from these two incidents every thing was fine.
Will I come back again?
I don't know, but I will have second thoughts.

Booked a room for 2 adults and 1 child. It should be made clear when booking that children are not included when you book a room to include children. Was made to pay 150dhs extra for an extra bed. What was even worse was somebody came to the room with a credit card machine and made me pay before the bed was delivered. Then I had to sit waiting for the bed to arrive even after I paid. Will never go back.

Al Bahar Hotel
Amazing place for family
I spent a wonderful stay with family and friends in Al Baher Hotel that will never be forgotten.
The hotel was amazing in location, landscape and hospitality.
I approached front office for check in I met Hajer, she is a wonderful lady, professional approach very helpful, welcomming and knoledgeable with smile on face, she finished check-in procedure in very short time and made me feel home.
The room is clean, nice, specious, comfortable with balcony facing sea-side .
They have many resturents I tried two of them Momo they serve buffet and Aretusa , an Arabic resturent service delicious affordable dishes, facing the swimming pool, they have shisha also, there you can meet Mr Islam, he is wonderful, helpful you will feel as if you met him before, professional approach with smile on face.
Swimming pool is huge clean crystal like, temperature controlled and big jacuzzi, I love the atmosphere there and walking at the beach side which is so clean.
I wished babyfoot and table tennis and other entertainment games to be free, it would be amazing
You can do self parking out the hotel or the basement.
Final I would like to thank Al Bahar management for having such wonderful and friendly staff, and making the hotel the right place for relaxing and having memorable moments.

I am somewhat confused why this resort has so many 5 star reviews, because if you compare it to the other beach hotels in Fujairah (such as the Intercontinental, Rotana and Le Meridien), it falls well short and is around the same room rate.

First the positives, the pool and beach area is nice and well maintained. Reception staff are friendly, if a little slow. Rooms are a decent size and clean.

The biggest issue I had was the lack of hot water in the room. In both the evening and morning it was impossible to get hot water for a shower. When I called maintenance, he had to leave all taps running for minimum 10 minutes for the hot water to come. Unacceptable in a so called 5 star hotel.

For quite a large hotel, there is a lack of food and beverage options, no alcohol is served and access to the pool and beach is closed off quite early in the evening. When there are other much nicer resorts in the area, its hard to recommend Al Bahar.
