Stayed one night on business. Asked for two twin beds (sharing with a mate) but were given a room with two singles attached to make a king... We had to separate these ourselves, despite the fact that I was on crutches and asked for help from the staff and ended up with a swollen and painful foot.
Very nice grounds, half decent buffet breakfast. Beer is VERY expensive (with tax about 5.5 riyals or roughly $15 a pint in the buffet restaurant). The bar is not a bar, but a side lounge off of the side of a swanky restaurant and was not at all inviting for a relaxing atmosphere... You need to be dressed up for that place.
