We stayed here for 5 nights as a relaxing break in the sun and this hotel delivered most of what we wished for. The hotel is luxurious, very clean, spacious and catered for all your needs. There is a beautifull swimming pool and gardens and the beach staff were very helpful and attentive, as soon as they see you they would come over take the towels from you and then make up your lounger and parasol, which let me tell you is definately needed in August, wow was it hot!!!! 45c + and with temperatures of 30c+ at night, thank god for the brilliant efficent and quiet air conditioning in your rooms and hotel as a whole.
We visited this hotel during the Ramadan month so the hotel was not fully open, the pool bar area was closed and so was some of the restaurants. During this time you are not permitted to eat, drink or smoke out side. No alcohol is served but smoking is permitted in the hotel and at dinner in certain areas. This did not spoil our enjoyment as we are not big drinkers but if you are i certainly would avoid this time of year.
The only negative comment that i would say about this choice of hotel for a holiday is that do not go if you are a great beach lover, the beach is very small, the sand is un-inviting and there is only a view of the Al Raha Beach Development to look at.
