Our check in was bumpy due to our provider not telling the KP of our booking!! We had to wait over an hour for it to be sorted but Esteban who was dealing with us was great.

An exceptional hotel and an exceptional resort. Amazing pool which my kids (and me) loved. The pool at the hotel is better than the pool at the Dubai Jumeirah beach hotel which I have also stayed at. Lovely rooms at the KP, with a great pool view - if you book the sea facing rooms. Check-in was efficient, and I... More
