“Weekend away.”
Reviewed 5 May 2013

The hotel was quite expensive.
It was almost entirely populated with Russian tourists.
There was a kettle and cups in the room but no tea or coffee or complementary water.
There were items missing from the mini bar, (told reception).
Staff were helpful.
Beach is very nice but 95% of beach chairs have towels left on to reserve them early.
The ambience is just slightly 'drab'.
Buffet breakfast was good as was diner.
There was a strange bedroom notice about the care of towels - not to be used for cleaning shoes, dying hair, fruit preparation etc?

Room Tip: There was some ongoing building work so we moved rooms.

Clean Hotel and helpful staf.
All the food is very good.
Bad choise of the and we don't like that the staff are taking away the plates just during your eating.
We never have a problem during our entire stay. Everything was well taken care off. we had a wonderful stay.
There were no free internet ( wi-fi ), it is too expencive to gen on.

I booked a last minute room for 1 night at the Sharjah grand hotel. The price was decent at $163. Plus it was on the beach and had a nice pool and large slide into the pool. I saw it wasnt in Dubai, but it wasnt that far from the airport. Well, after my flight landed i got a taxi to the hotel. It was around 7pm when we started, 1 1/2 hour later i arrived. The traffic is horrible going to Sharjah in the early evening and also going to Dubai in the morning. There is 1 main road that leads to Sharjah and it seems like everone who works in Dubai lives in Sharjah. So, i arrive, and it looks pretty nice, so i book in and go to my room...on the way im noticing alot of russian signs. I opened my door to my room and swear I thought i was in Russia about 30 years ago. The room i had was definately modeled or catered to Russians. I had to unplug the phone to get internet. It was so old school. Anyways, i wasnt that impressed but figured what the heck, only 1 night right! So i figured i would go for a drink at the bar. And then soon found out that Sharjah does not serve any Alcohol. I was really upset that i didnt know it didnt serve alcohol as i was reallyy looking forward to a nice cold beer.

In conclusion, if your from Russia or an Eastern European country that has a family, and does not drink Alcohol this is the place for you. For me, i will never go back to Sharjah again, too much traffic, outdated and no Alcohol.

This hotel was the mist favorite hotel for my family for many years. But the recent years we are getting more and more disappointed by the poor-rude service of reception and the poor choice of breakfast food. All the remaining is good-the beach, pool, rooms. But you are getting nervous every morning when having a breakfast, when the girls are taking away the plates just during your eating, and having almost no choice of food (every day the same food). And it is even offensive that the receptionists can be rude to You, even not thinking that it is their duty to answer questions and do their best to arrange a best stay for guests. I guess that this stay will be the last one in this hotel. I am very disappointed

The hotel is very clean and the staff is helpful. The swimming pool and the beach are the best in Sharjah. I live here and I often visit this hotel. By my opinion this is the best of all Sharjah Beach Hotels.
