Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Stayed a night at this place en route from Doha to Dubai. I don't want to drive at a stretch, so my son and I decided to take a break half way, and this place was perfect. It's like a 15km detour and is located beachside. We got a great price through Agoda. There is a pool, private parking, beach access, a restaurant bar, etc. The staff is very polite and professional buffet dinner cost AED 60 if paid at the reception and 90 for restart billing. The food was OK at dinner, I didn't enjoy the taste that much, but it's worth trying. The breakfast spread was good and included in our room rate. The room is small but delicate enough. Clean and cozy. The only issue we faced was with the split aircon. It directly hit on our face while sleeping, and turning it off was feeling hot inside. Hence I had to wake up in between to turn off and on. Nevertheless, we were relaxed and enjoyed our one day and night stay. Will stay again on our next road trip to Dubai. Two small free water bottle, offer/tea maker, digital safe and towels available. Free wifi was good.

One of few pet-friendly hotels in the UAE, Dhafra Beach Hotel is our favourite place to staycay with our dog because it has everything we could possibly want from a doggy-family holiday. The beach is gorgeous with shallow water that stretches out for a long way making splashing around with our dog fun and a great place for our dog to learn to swim and enjoy the water. The beach is quiet and secluded and it is a great place to relax and enjoy the sunset. Our dog is also allowed to join us for breakfast and dinner (in our own area away from other diners) which makes Dhafra Beach Hotel unique as a pet-friendly hotel. I don't know another hotel that offers this. Housekeeping will clean up the room from sand and Labrador glitter (hair!) every day and many of the staff also love animals so it was a very welcoming and friendly experience for us. We have already returned to the hotel and we plan to holiday there a lot! The food is very good and the swimming pool is large and great for laps. Another hotel next door offers more restaurant options and a gym for guests to use.

It is an older hotel, with two floors, but recently refurbished to the latest hospitality standards.
As facilities there is a restaurant and a bar, a very beautiful garden, an outdoor swimming pool and access to the sea with a very beautiful beach.
Very good breakfast available from early morning an very good coffee (for the coffee lovers).
The bar have every day Happy Hours with à la carte menu.
The entire personnel is very kind and professional, from the receptionists, to serving personnel at restaurant and bar to the cleaning and laundry personnel who are doing a very good job every day.

ZERO cold water made it impossible to take a shower because the water was burning hot. Front desk didn’t care when told and the man was just laying back in his chair texting on his phone while I tried to explain the problem. The same man told me that the pet charge was a “pet deposit” when I checked in and when I checked out found out it was a charge which almost doubled the price of the room.

This is one of the best place to escape the rush and hectic schedule in Abu Dhabi. Totally peaceful and 100% quality time well spent with wife. Rooms look small on the corridor but was huge when we enter. Interior is quiet despite the many rooms. We enjoy a much needed rest and good sleep at night. Room service is superb and food is excellent. Will surely comeback again in the future! Buffet breakfast is great that started early which gives time to enjoy the beach thereafter. Sunset is mesmerizing and enchanting at the time we are here. Thank you for the very accommodating staff and well keep rooms!

Super hôtel with very helpful and pleasant staff. The room was modern and comfortable with good beds. There is nothing around the hotel really. We stayed here to go to Danna Island which was a big mistake as there is really nothing there and it is a big disorganization with the ferry service. No proper information for the return trip and they nearly did not let us get back in the ferry. Anyway this is not the hotels fault and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Thank you very much!

Very convenient hotel for an overnight stopover on the way to Dubai from Saudi by car. Big, clean rooms, extremely comfortable beds, excellent location on the beach, decent room service and good value for money. The staff were extremely friendly and welcoming.

Breakfast was a little crowded and the range of items was adequate (the hash browns were delicious) and seemed to be geared towards the mainly Indian guests at the hotel.

All in all highly recommended for an overnight or short stay.

You never get such a low prize half board packages in beach sides in Abudhabi. Really enjoyed beach activities and you can also enjoy all common amenities from Danat beach resort .
Tips : Book for Half board pkg 15 days in advance and you will get amazing discount.
Stay with family is very nice without any disturbance.
