Cove Rotana Resort Ras Al Khaimah

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 February 2012

We spent 2 weeks, jan 17-jan 31, at Cove Rotana and enjoyed our stay very much. We needed a nice place with a seaview for relaxation, and that is what we found. The hotel, with rooms and villas, is built like a village with small houses spread out on a large area facing the sea. The service was sometimes very good and sometimes not. You would get different information in the reception depending who you asked. We first stayed in a room close to Cinnamon restaurant with a nice seaview, but unfortunately due to a heavy rain fall, water came pouring through the ceiling. We complained to the reception, and the manager was very serviceminded and arranged new accomodation in one of the villas close to the sea. It was beautiful with a kitchen/living room, big bedroom, walk in closet and a big nice terass with a pool. We were fully compensated. The food in bars and restaurants is nice, breakfast is wonderful with lots of fresh fruits and all the bread, eggs, pancakes you need. The Laguna pool (not temp) is quiet with no music, while the Sunset pool (25-30 C) is more lively with aquagym and music. The latter has a wonderful view of the lagoon and the sea. We would consider coming back.

This is a lovely resort in the UAE, located just off the main road after the Emirates Road highway exit. It's a hidden treasure - the property is massive once you enter it. An enternity swimming pool (temp controlled!), a beautiful stretch of a beach, and a nice Italian restaurant - key facets of this resort I'd think. The rooms although not that grand, are comfortable with basic amenities. We thoroughly enjoyed the walks since the property is big with different elevation levels. The resort also added a special touch with complimentary cake as we celebrated our anniversary.

Spend 2 days and one night at the resort. The property is awesome with good service. Choice of ood is however limited

Room Tip: Try the one close to the reception area as it is a vast property. Being close to the reception area...

The hotel is too far away from Dubai (1 hour by taxi=180 dhr one way) and there is nothing to see or do in Ras Al Kaimah. If you only want to be on the beach or by the pool, the place is perfect. But the whole place should need a hugh makeover. And there is no free internet service. 45 dhr for one hour in the reception area. The dining area is big, loud and people smoke in the bar and in the pool area. A good advice...stay in Dubai, Jumeira beach instead. This place is NOT worth the money.

Dear Markusochmax,

Thank you very much for taking the time to share your feedback about your recent stay at our resort.
We sincerely regret that you did not enjoy your visit entirely for which we apologize. Our all day dining restaurant is the most frequented one, therefore usually busy. Alternatively, our Mediterranean restaurant Basilico, being an a la carte venue, offers a more peaceful and relaxing atmosphere. We regret if this was not mentioned to you upon check-in. Your comments in regards to our bars and internet services are noted and will be assessed.

Again, thank you very much for your valuable comments.

Kind regards,

We were here for a weekend getaway..from Dubai. The property is beautiful, clean and serene. It seemed much more beautiful than their website. A huge property overlooking the sea..lovely looking villas and rooms and quite a few restaurants.
A walk through the hotel felt like we were in a tropical paradise
The room and food was average.
Good service and would definitely go there again for the ambience/location.
