We stayed at the hotel for 2 nights with our 2 children as part of a trip to Abu Dhabi and Dubai for my husbands 40th birthday.
It was perfect for us and the staff were all incredibly helpful and friendly. The pool area is fantastic, we all made full use of it! The beach was slightly disappointing because it wasn't as wide as we had expected and there is some building work going on to one side of the beach area which was sectioned off. However it was very clean and highly enjoyable for swimming.
We made use of the jet skiing facilities which were fantastic and the coastal views when you go out on the water are spectacular! We even had dolphins come up within just a few feet of the jetski which was amazing!
Breakfast was a bit on the expensive side, just to be aware. Wifi was also very slow and is not complimentary.
One of the highlights during our stay was the surprise of birthday cake and sparkling date juice being left in our room for my hubby's birthday - a really nice touch and highly appreciated and enjoyed! Thank you!
Overall I highly recommend this hotel as we really enjoyed our stay. I would imagine it would suit any traveller and as we had young children with us, this is always a test! Would certainly go back again :0)
