Great views, friendly staff and very clean room although on the older side. I took my family from Australia there to show them the dessert and was recommended to stay here. It was very nice for a short stay.

Jabal Hafeet is highest mountain in UAE. It is nice to go once up there, but actually there is nothing much to see. There road up to the mountain is very nice and smooth. so don't worry about claiming up the mountain. There is one small restaurant/ cafeteria at the top where you can purchase some refreshments and snacks. I... More

Breath taking view.. But its empty.. Your feeling when your on your is excitement but when your up there you'll be asking for more.. Because what is there is just parking area and cafeteria.

What a view, especially on a clear day. the road is also a highlight, as it pretty windy during the climb to the top. Highly recommend.

I love the view from the hill top and is perfect if you wish to escape from stress. A perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of city life. Would love to go back again someday.

The drive from Dubai to Al Ain is a very pleasant one. Not much traffic on this route. The road leading to the top has 2-3 motor halts for viewing the landscape. For those interested in picnicking, there are barbecue stands and shaded seating arrangements too. The feeling at the top is mesmerizing. A must visit during the Dubai sojourn.

The drive from Dubai to Jabel Hafeet is beautiful and it is the perfect distance. I would highly recommend to drive into Al Ain late morning so as to not miss other attractions, and go up to Jabel Hafeet later in the evening.

So the drive upto jabal hafeet in Al Ain is the main attraction, and not the final destination as much. the drive from abu dhabi actually reminds u that u are actually in a desert! miles of sand dunes are a treat to the eye and provide good photo opportunities. the final mountain or jabal hafeet is a rocky dry...
