Hilton Ras Al Khaimah.....All inclusive or Half board

I am intending to go to Hilton Ras Al Khaimah at the end of November with my 2 kids (age 5 & 10yrs) with Virgin Holidays.

I would appreciate any advice on whether to book All Inclusive or Half Board.The difference between these two is around £700 so wondered if going All inclusive is well worth it??? or just Half board will be ok.

Also does this hotel do daily complimentary shuttle to any of the Malls.

thank you

In the whole of Ras Al Khaimah there is maybe 2 resturants that tourists would want to eat at - outside the big hotels. There is no tourist promenade with bars, no plaza de resturants, no toursit scene whatsoever - its just an ethnic Arabic working city - the Hilton is as good as it gets so go all inclusive.

I'm with Harrypic on this one. Also if you go half board it means you will have to pay for your drinks including water and soft drinks. A 1.5 ltr of water will cost you 20dhm and a small can of coke/sprite the same. Don't even think about a bottle of wine!!!!!!

Yes, they run a shuttle bus to Manar Mall. There are 2 other malls in Ras al Khaimah but Manar Mall is about as good as it gets (for Ras al Khaimah)!

Haunted House: to find it go right at KFC r/a in RAK with KFC on your right. Continue on this road until you see the Emirates petrol station on your right.

We have just returned and would advise you to go all inclusive as the drinks are really expensive (I think it was aprox £5.00 for a pint of beer and £3.00 for a can of coke)

It was a godsend to us, not to worry about how much it was going to cost each time we wanted to have a drink and as you have children, the cost can soon add up.

Hope this helps.
