First of all it has the longest and most amazing driveway - seems to wind on forever through the amazing sand dunes - with impressive doorways along the way (just so you know you are going the right way!). Then you get to the entrance and its all just fabulous really! Great check in and service to your room. All the rooms have views over the sand dunes and we had a terrace room with a fantastic outdoor area. As some of the other reviews have stated we could have quite easily have just stayed in our room...beautiful decor and very big. My parents had a balcony room next door and that was just as nice inside.
We had dinner in the restaurant by the pool and it was really nice, the breakfast was good too. The only thing I would say is that something didn't agree with some of the party - we narrowed it down to either the camel milk/date drink or pina colada (just the one!).
The hotel is just very beautiful, the lobby, library, stairwells and corridors, pool - all of it....lots of thought has been put into each object or design. Then there is the view - well, its simply magical!
I can't wait to go again - just need to take out a small loan first haha!
