“***A good place to relax***”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014 via mobile

Its my first time to stay in this Hotel and booked only for one night and I extend for 2 more nights to enjoy my stay. Upon arrival I was warmly greeted by Ahmad of reception and I was upgraded to a nice room that makes my stay more comfortable with nice outside view and for my extension stay I was assisted by Jocelyn of reservation through telephone conversation with friendly manner. The restaurant called arabesque has a good selection of food and the staff are very friendly...For sure I will suggest your Hotel if anyone wants to spend their time to relax and enjoy the stay.

Stayed May 2014, travelled solo

Finding it was simple enough, just follow your satnav. My Fiancee and I was looking for a short break as I just moved back from Bahrain to the UAE.
From a friends advice we made bookings for 4 days, the price was very reasonable, and I was a bit "iffy" about it.
As we turned up, we found the really lovely, breath taking property. Greeted by the many bell men dressed in gold trimmed uniforms, we were quickly ushered to the reception desk, where we got checked in quite quickly.
The bell men then guided us to the elevator and we went up, our bags turning up separately.

The views from the room was amazing, with lush greeneries around, there were a kiddies water park, a big swimming pool and villas that could be seen from the balcony.
As we did our little tour we found several restaurants bars and pubs ( all together about 9 places of eatery and refreshments).
Notable places were the Luce an Italian themed restaurant, very ambient, lovely view and delicious food. The Arabeque was an experience, a must try restaurant.
For a game of pool a few nibbles and a few pints before starting off the evening, then SHOOTERS is the room to go- a pool hall with a bar and dart boards, with really cool staffs.

A few of our evenings were spent in the Horse and Jockey Pub, not just for the taste of a British environment, but the food was good and there was a resident band playing amazing music.
One could just relax by the pool sipping a few cocktails down just as well, from the very lovely Blue Oasis pool bar.

There is too many things about this place to write about, as it has meeting rooms and function halls as well. For us it was what we were hoping for from a weekend, relaxation, fun, good food and an amazing memory.
Thumbs up for this place, we will definitely be heading back soon.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the pool/ kiddies water park tends to be a little busy and carries a bit of noise, but...

Enjoyed a few days here, while working at the UAE University. It was a wonderful place to relax at the pool after work, or use the gym. The restaurants are rather limited, but food is well presented and tasty. I would stay here if I returned.

The hotel itself is very nice, with a fantastic pool and generally good facilities. The room we stayed in was massive and very nice albeit some furnishings are showing signs of wear. The wifi during our stay was terrible - they really need to upgrade the system.

Only complaint we had was on our first night we ate in the English pub and the food took forever (almost 2 hours) and when it did arrive my steak was bordering on burnt rather than medium/ well like I asked. I have some sympathy for them as the hotel was full due to the Manchester City game and with it being off peak they probably had reduced staff levels.... but that does not excuse them not telling us how long the wait would be when we ordered as if we had known we would have gone elsewhere .

Very friendly and welcoming staff. Upgraded to villa - clean and spacious but felt it had not been 'lived - in' in a while. Busy night to book a taxi as it had been promised but a busy function and football match that evening in 'sleepy' Al Ain. had a peaceful night, the pool was amazing - spacious and clean. Breakfast should be included as it is in many other hotels.
