“One bedroom suite with one light switch!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2014

Excellent hotel, very good service, nice amenities. Only negative was that in our suite, there is only one light switch that controls both the living room and the bedroom area. Weird! If you are in the bedroom and want to switch off the ceiling lights, then the same switch will turn off all lights within the suite. People sitting in the living area are in darkness. We had to move a desk lamp from the bedroom into the living area to be able to see during the late evening!

We went for one night weekend stay at this five star property.The resort is beautiful with lovely rooms facing sea view and pool side..The view of beach and swimming pool is eye catchy.The staff is very courteous.Only drawback is for vegetarians,There are very few options for vegetarian..The buffet breakfast was very good with Indian vegetarian dishes..In all loved our stay here.

Stayed there for few days with my family during Easter week ...
They provided us with transport from Dubai with car seats for kids, which was a great relief for us!
It is a great hotel for holidays and for weekends! We enjoyed very much the pool, the beach, the kids club, the beach volleyball, ... etc. I will post some photos!
The breakfast was excellent & the dinner too, specially the Dinner at the “Brasserie” Restaurant was supper!
Staff is very helpful & friendly ...
That’s what I call a real family holiday ... will be back for sure :)

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms at the villas area are the best!

We just came back from a fantastic weekend at the Double Tree by Hilton Resort @Spa Marjan Island. The hotel is just 50 minutes from Dubai and the perfect spot for a family break in the UAE. The hotel has several pools (have a look at the pictures we took with our toy helicopter) and a great "bouncy sea castle" that kept the kids busy for most of the day.

We tried the french brasserie for dinner and the quality of the food and service of the staff was top class (you have to try the steak tartare and the coq au vin) but we missed the escargots on the menu.

The hotel is brand new, the rooms are spacious and our bathroom had spa-like proportions!

We would highly recommand this hotel and are looking forward to our next stay.

Marco, Esther & Mac Faassen

Room Tip: We really enjoyed the ground floor Chalet with direct access to the beach and the pool.

We stayed in this hotel the beginning of April for 8 days and had a great time. When we arrived at the reception to check in we were taken aside, the check in went very smooth, quick and efficient. We were driven by buggy to our villa by the bellboy and the guest relations agent Maria. When we arrived at the villa we were shown around the room and everything was explained to us efficiently and we were told who to contact and were to call if we needed anything during our stay, the welcome was fantastic.
The room and bathroom was a real "wow" feeling, they was very spacious and well equipped, the balcony had a great view over the resort and sea. The room was very quiet, the beds one of the best, really comfy.
During our stay there were 3 restaurants open, the food and service in all restaurants was very good, we really enjoyed the food and the ambiance of the brasserie restaurant as this was a lot quieter than the Marjan restaurant (personnel choice).
The next coming weeks they are scheduled to open the Italian restaurant and the pub, which will really make it complete.
The roof top bar in the main building was very relaxing and had great cocktails, shisha's and snacks, the views were also super, the service was excellent.
Being a Hilton Diamond member we had the luxury of our sun beds being reserved and set up for us on a daily basis by Said at our preferred place by the fantastic pool. Even though there never seemed to be a shortage of sun beds either by the pool or on the beach we found this a very luxurious and super service.
All staff were really great and helpful there were a few that always went that extra step to make us feel very special, Prakash, Sushil, Kaycee, Saurabh, Said, Roshan, Viktoria. A big thank you to all for making our stay a memorable one, we enjoyed it so much that we have booked to come back again in November to this fantastic well managed Doubletree resort.

Lovely place. helpful staff, experienced management team and great service. it is the best family resort I stayed in, large food selection for kids at well competitive pricing and variety of water activities to enjoy. I went for a boat trip with my little ones and they enjoyed it, I also had a parasailing ride which was memorable. I will definitely visit this hotel again

Friendly staff, easy and smooth check in. Excellent value for money. Two comments:
- if you prefer the beach over the pool then this is not the hotel in RAK to go to
- very limited choice of food , it's a new hotel and we have been told that restaurants are yet to open so there was only one and relatively far from the our room / the pool where we were hanging out, not convenient w kids
The AC is very loud in the room but it's not a big deal If you are going in winter

Villas are nice and close by the beach and the pool which was really good, the restaurant staff was really friendly and they prepared 2 different dishes which were not on the menu for my 4 years old daughter

Room Tip: The villas are really nice, I stayed in 21003 and it was excellent
