A real oasis, would definitely recommend this place for stunning desert scenery - well worth the long drive for a couple of days here. It is a huge resort, but fortunately not that crowded when we were there. Big room with an amazing bathtub. Large terrace off our room was great for lazing around in the shade from the midday sun. The buffets for breakfast and dinner were excellent, and we enjoyed star gazing with the telescope outside the bar. Camel ride and dune drive were enjoyable. The Spa was very good, with lovely views from the treatment rooms, and excellent Thai therapists. The only down side was the large number of rather arrogant Emirati men staying - if you haven't seen what they can be like then beware - they think that they are superior to every other race (and obviously gender), and were extremely rude and disrespectful to the staff, particularly in the spa.
