“Overpriced”
Reviewed 1 April 2013

Overpriced. very bad facilities and amenities. unhelpful staff. The shower in the guest bathroom is a joke. You need to sit on the toilet to take a shower there.

The only good thing about this hotel was the location and still, we could've found a better hotel for that price in that area

Hotel was clean and service was good. enjoyed my stay, staff was help full and accommodating. stayed here with some body recommendation and it was great. Had a little baby and they really took care of my request of Baby cot, clean room when baby was awake, wash the dishes twice as food coked for my baby was three times a day as fresh cooking done.
we also had some issue with the Ac and the technician came at 2 am in morning and fixed the Ac well done and keep it up. they have opened a restaurant now so the breakfast was taken from them on very nominal charges and the choice of menu was good.
they have shuttle bus to take you too Malls and Beach but is has certain time and you have to book in advance. Room was big and clean, they have a laundry in basement where all the guest are washing the clothes it was free of charge so some times had to wait to use as all machines were occupied

Room Tip: take front rooms as they are big

I am currently at this property and looking for alternate accommodation. The place is crawling with cockroaches. My room has been fumigated 3 times and still there is bugs. I am completely disgusted. I have been in hotels all over the world 2 stars to 6 stars... never seen anything quite like this. I hope they get the problem fixed. Great location, good size accommodation, friendly staff... and a ton of cockroaches. Deal breaker!!!

Had two stays in one bedroomed apartments during January and February 2012 whilst visiting the Gulf on business.
Found the apartments to be quite spacious and clean, and absolutely perfect for what we were looking for.
There is no cafe or restaurant, and we found that the best option was to buy breakfast foods from one of the many nearby supermarkets.
One tip - some of the one bedroom apartments have a full open plan kitchen and some only a galley kitchenette - try to get the first option.

Reviewed 27 December 2011

Advertised as being suitable for a family of four, there was only one double bed. The settee could sleep a child but you have to pay the equivalent of 20 Euros per night to have an additional bed brought in. The kitchen is only equipped with two of everything and, even then, it was missing basic equipment such as a washing machine and a kettle. The apartment smelt, was dusty enough for me to write a message in the dust on the cupboards and was home to several cockroaches every night. The swimming pool on the roof only has sun on it until just after midday and so could not compensate for our experience. We have just arrived back home and have put all of our clothes in the washing machine because they smelt as musty as the hotel we just vacated.

Room Tip: Do not book a one bedroomed apartment for a family of four (in spite of guidelines saying that it is...

The Location was a bit of peroblem but when we called the hotel they guided us and we reached.
the staff was nice and the apartment given to us was clean and big, we went at the end of august and checkout in 01st september it was very expensive as some holidyas going on and we paid almost 800 dhs but the satff, the apartment and the services made it up for us. we left the hotel eary morning at 05 am and the satff took care of our transport needs and wakup call nice work keep it up
the pool is small and you can not dive but the gym and sauna jaquzzi facilities are nice as we were on holidays but enjoyed
they do not have any restraurant and we had to order from out side the reception was very help full for sending the menues to us for diffrent type of resturants.
the House keeping staff was nice they didnt know much english but were very helpfull.
well at the end we would say that we will go back and we like the palce and the staff and will tell our friends also to go.

Room Tip: ask for the front rooms

My wife,myself & our 2 boys ages 6 & 10.5 stayed here in Dec 10/Jan 11 for 16 nites in a 1 bed apt.There aren't enough praiseworthy words in the English Language for me to describe the quality of service we recieved at the Avari Hotel Apartments.
We were treated like royalty by the whole staff,be it the security guard holding the door for us,ruunning to the main road to catch us a cab,delivering our numerous shopping bags to our room or the housekeeping lads 'Asghar' & 'Taha' who kept our rooms tidy providing us with all the amenities promptly & efficiently whenever & as many times as we wanted,to the wonderful; lady at the front desk 'Shazia' whose infectious smile & bubbly personality made us feel at home on a daily basis & the maintainance guys 'Shabbir'; & 'Manjit' who seemed to outdo each other everytime we asked them to sort something out for us,to the Owner Mr Xerxes Avari who called us personally to check if everything was to our liking & if he could do anything more for us to make our stay even more comfortable than it already was.& Last but definately not the least the Manager Mr Harris Aftab who needs to be given an award for 'Hotel Apartment Manager of the Year'.
