I have previously attended this Hotel for work and was once again visiting to work with a client but was fortunate enough to be asked to stay for 3 nights at this wonderful Hotel. The setting is beautiful, with lovely outdoor areas, including the beach facilities. It also has a wonderful view of the Sheikh Zayed Mosque.
