We stayed here for our 3rd wedding anniversary. To be honest it is not the sort of hotel you want to go to for a special occasion.
I am sure about 20 years ago it was amazing but it really is in need of a renovation. The only thing nice about this hotel is the lobby and the lower level area where you sign out equipment and they have a pool table and a little shop.
The rooms are tiny, the furniture is outdated. Laurence's bar is really outdated but has excellent staff. The shisha cafe is the same as a cheap shisha cafe in any arab town, except that the indoor seating is awkward and you end up facing other people. The only thing setting it apart is the outdoor seating area which has an amazing view of Al Ain city.
The mini-golf course is fun but again outdated, the pool area has slides which are fun but again it looks old. It does not feel luxurious at all. Lots of kids everywhere so if you have kids maybe they would have more fun there...
If you want to see Jebel Hafeet I suggest you stay at the Al Ain Rotana and then drive up to Jebel Hafeet. Maybe have a meal at this hotel or a drink at the shisha cafe to experience the view.
