We had breakfast there in order to be able to see the hotel interior They do not allow you to go to the top floors. You can only see the lobby and outside pool area The breakfast quality is very good but does not deserve the price tag. You essentially pay for the ability to see the hotel interior. The... More

We've had many breakfasts at Bab Al Yam during our stay. The staff is very friendly and smiley. There is a wide choice at the buffet + crepe/pancake/waffle station and eggs station. You can either seat inside or outside and there are two terraces outside which is convenient if too windy or too sunny.

Nice self service restaurant, with excellent food quality and a beautiful landscape. Maybe better for informal lunches than evening occasions, very good cuisine, service and pro active management. They care and you feel it.

Went here for dinner whilst staying at BAA. The food was very good with excellent service but none of the food seemed particularly hot and was more warm. Fantastic selection of seafood and ice creams. Was very disappointed in the bread and butter pudding which was very cold. I probably would not return to this restaurant a it was not... More

Chef Suleyman, Satish, Robert and all the staff are amazing. This restaurant is also good for group of friends. They really attend to our needs and Chef Suleyman prepared mashed potatoes for us. Talk about luxury service.
