I stayed here with my two adult children for 4 days in a twin room plus a rollaway bed. The room was perfectly big enough to accommodate the additional bed and although it was nowhere near as comfortable as a normal bed, it was good enough and avoided my having to pay for an additional room.
The pool and beach facilities were excellent which was the main reason I chose the hotel. All staff were extremely helpful and thoroughly efficient.
The only thing that let the hotel down for me was the absence of a free wifi facility. The Khalidiya really need to sort this out if they are to compare favourably with their competitors.
Oh, one more thing to be aware of if alcohol is a deal-breaker for you; this is a DRY hotel. This wasn't a problem for me and they are fairly up front and proud of their alcohol-free status but if you simply can't do without it then you may want to look elsewhere.
