Nice hotel in nice area with very good pool area and food. Travelled on business and stayed in one of the residential apartments, which was very comfortable and spacious. Ate in the pool bar a few times and the Italian restaurant once, both were excellent, as was breakfast. No problems or complaints at any time during my four day stay.

Stayed over for business (AAOIFI conf), so far found the hotel decent for staying over for business/official trip. The room was neatly presented and equipped with usual facilities as expected from a 4 star hotel though there are signs of some ageing / wear and tear. Based on this, in terms of value the hotel seems to be quite pricey... More
