I am reading the reviews thinking i must have gone to the wrong place. Then, i saw the pictures. I am sorry but i just don't get it. It is concrete shaded walkways that seem to go on forever through area after area that looks the exact same. We weren't even sure if we were allowed to walk through the... More

Wow, I wouldn't have thought that the Oasis is this impressive. Driving through it you almost forget that you're right in the desert (I mean, right, that's the sense of an oasis ...) and every corner reveals something interesting to gaze at.

Antique Arabia. We went here during Ramadan which was probably why it was deserted. We also went in a side (?) entrance and there was no info available about the oasis. The oasis itself is a date farm and it is beautiful. It is a complete contrast to everywhere else we have seen in the UAE. Lovely cool walkways beneath... More

Absolutely something special in UAE, the Oasis, and how are they maintained (so clean and so natural). Don't miss the visit, particularly in winter is a very nice walk

Lovely, peaceful walk. Al Ain is muc quieter than the city, so this is a tranquil place. Lots of trees allow a good shade, even in the heat.

The oasis is a pleasant respite during the heat of day. The paths are shaded from the many palm trees in the oasis so it remains nice and cool inside. The channels of running water help to provide a peaceful atmosphere as well. There is a small amount of trash littered throughout the oasis which seems so out of place... More

I enjoy nature so visiting the only oasis of the region was a refreshing change from the desert. I appreciated the greenery and vast land of palms. There was a cold filtered water at the entrance and helped ease the day's heat. Then there was nothing else to do. 3 stars.

The oasis is lovely and we enjoyed seeing the canals and it provides a nice shade in the hot weather but with a number of meandering paths it is easy to get confused. With some difficulty we managed to find an exit so yes definitely needs better signage within the place.
