“Great deal, great service!”
Reviewed 22 December 2013

My boyfriend and I are currently on holiday in the UAE and originally made accomodations in Dubai in order to be closer to all of the tourist attractions. Word of mouth from friends made us realize an opportunity to spend some time in Oman's Musandam Peninsula but hotels were already booked in the area for the holiday. The closest option with availability at the time was Ras al-Khaimah's Hilton - the only problem is that there is currently no wi-fi in the rooms there, only in the lobby. We are both students and have schoolwork to do before our residency, so this was out of the question. The Hilton management was nice enough to switch us to the newer, more modern DoubleTree by Hilton right across the way - they realized that the lack of wi-fi in the rooms is not obvious when booking so they were very accomodating.

The front desk clerk at the DoubleTree was very pleasant and helpful, even presenting us with warm walnut chocolate chip cookies. Since the Hilton took care of the transfer, we had no paper work to do and everything was relatively seamless with the switch. The DoubleTree benefits from more modern finishes than the Hilton across the way and also has various spa treatment services on the top floor. There is also a decent swimming pool, bar and lounge on the top foor with nice views of the city. When going to Ras al-Khaimah, understand that you will get relatively less glitz and glamour offered in Abu Dhabi and Dubai but there are deals to be had here - for instance, our original hotel booking in Dubai at the Marriott offered decent room rates but they doubled over the holidays. Not so in Ras al-Khaimah, making it more economical (and less of a tourist trap, I guess).

Once we checked into our room, we settled in but realized that the room had no table at which we could share a meal in case we ordered room serivce. I called to front desk to see if we could have a table and chairs brought to our room the next day as many of the advert photos showed the rooms nicely furnished with side chairs and tables. Instead, the clerk offered us a free room upgrade based on what was available. He sent someone up to show us a room right next door - it had two double beds instead of the king we had, but we were still very pleased with the larger bathroom, additional space, lovely mountain views and...a small table with two chairs for light dining.

At first I was worried about being further away from Dubai and Abu Dhabi but I am so far very pleased with our decision to not only opt for Ras al-Khaimah, but with the DoubleTree! The staff here is thus far very helpful, accomodating and willing to make our stay stress free and enjoyable. While we are only on day two of a 12 day holiday in the UAE, I think we are very fortunate to have found accomodations that are still pleasant, modern, clean and inexpensive (less than 600 AED per night) in a country known for opulence and luxury. We are yet to visit Musandam but we are really looking forward to it! Updates to follow!!!

Room Tip: Ask if the corner rooms are available with the mountain views. These rooms have windows on two walls...

We arrived weary as it was around 2am, and we were greeted at reception by Omar. He upgraded us to a junior suite, for which was so wonderful and unexpected. We were given all information, and a warm cookie to enjoy.
Breakfast was superb, the variety, freshness, and the wonderful friendly service was so professional. All our needs were catered for, thus making this such a pleasurable relaxing start to each morning.
There is a free bus service that will take you to the beach, but you can easily get a taxi, as it will only cost around 10, UED.(£2.00) They also have a free bus to Dubai Mall, which is a must to visit, book this on arrival as it is really popular..
There is shops that you can easily locate, and walk to including a mall. The roads are fast moving so be careful how you cross over.
This hotel is so warm and friendly, and they try so hard to please you, and to make sure your stay is memorable. The cleanliness, is supberb, and I cannot rate this any higher, I look forward in returning.
Thank- you to all the staff, and for making our stay feel like home from home.

Room Tip: Simply ask to be on the 13th F[oor, the views are truly unique, especially at sunset.

I have stayed at this hotel 3 times and each stay it got worse. The last time we stayed the complimentary cookie that's the signature of Doubletree was hard and stale. The bathroom fixtures did not work properly. Worst of all was the fact extensive renovations were going on throughout several floors with no notice upon booking, check in or in the room. Deafening construction began by 8 am and despite repeated complaints was not stopped. After a late night (it was Ramadan) we literally got only 2 hours sleep. Worst of all, the front desk tried to say there was no construction! When I went to check it out there were entire floors (right next to ours) undergoing work. Breakfast is poor. So called spa is a joke. Will never go back and don't recommend it to others. Go to the Mangrove Hotel instead.

Thank you for everything!! We did not event think that this hotel would be such a great experiance and therefore we are even more happy that we visited Doubletree RAK and not the HILTON SPA & RESORT which was not even close as good as "Doubletree". Furher, the employees in Hilton Spa & Resort were rude, unfriendly and tried a few times to cheat on us with the change and everything.
