We have just got back from a week at the Al Bandar. We wanted a week's peace and quiet after our daughter's wedding and this is exactly what we got. The location couldn't be better - on a beautiful stretch of beach. The hotel has great facilities - several pools and lots of restaurants. I am not a great fan of buffet style eating but the food was always excellent at both the Al Tanoor and the Samba. There was always a good selection and plenty on offer (even when lobster was on the menu). We had half-board but you can eat in any of the restaurants and pay the difference between that and the bufffet rate.The staff were great - very friendly and attentive. The Piano Bar offers great cocktails which are especially good value during Happy Hour. We spent five days diving at the Extra Divers facility there which was well run by Esther and enjoyed that too.
From the UK, this is a very attractive alternative to the Red Sea - 7 hours flight and 3 hours time difference.
