We had stayed the previous night at their sister hotel- Al Raha beach so were expecting good service. But actually it was better- the staff seemed to be not only very attentive but friendly and keen to please. It is a reasonably small hotel and they were good at communicating to us and between themselves. My wife was working while... More

The absolute highlight here is how they have constructed the swimming pool - one end looks straight out into the desert - it's fantastic. The hotel offers quad biking. We were lucky enough to be the only ones going out at that time and the guide took us on a private - and crazy - tour. WOW!!!! Utterly brilliant -... More

Service poor, food below expectations and you get free twigs in your food as bay leaves! Staff very unfriendly and over a week and no contact regarding an email sent. Breakfast was enjoyable and views stunning

We stayed 2 nights from 12. - 14.03.14 (half board) in Tilal Liwa Hotel and it was perfect. We did not book in advance but walked in, had a look at the room, loved it and decided to stay. The staff was very attentive and helpful. We had problems with a flight we booked and the front desk staff made... More

Quite good overall: rooms are comfortable and big enough and bathrooms were well appointed--no complaints. We were on the back; our room opened onto an empty interlocking brick patio that had no decor and was dusted with sand. Suggestion to management: do something with these desolate empty spaces. Rooms opening onto the pool area seem nicer with a patio and... More

Beautiful set up, rooms are nice. You can have a pool or desert view doesnt make that much difference because you will spend most of your time in the pool area which is relaxing. We preferred desert view room, amazing sun rise and sun rise which i believe is what you need for desert experience. Reception service can be a... More

Last week I stayed in Tilal Liwa with my family for one night and the good feeling still remains afresh. After cruising some distance through the 'literally' deserted by- road, we get a glimpse of it from far way. The little fortress sorrounded by a patch of green in the backdrop of vastly stretched out sand is an everlasting image.Inside... More

Its location is as unlikely as its quality. You drive for miles through sand dunes when suddenly you see this fort like structure on the horizon. It would not surprise you to see the French Foreign Legion riding out of its huge portals. Its history, we were told, includes the fact that it was built on instructions from the President... More
