Resorts in Saudi Arabia are surprising. Despite the conservativeness of the country, locals still like to go to the beach and beach resorts, although the behaviour on display is different to that in resorts in other parts of the world. The Durrah offers decent accommodation, although it is not world class. The rooms are a good size, the beds acceptable,... More

Positives: really excellent food, and very helpful staff. But the place has clearly seen better days. Feels like there has been no refurbishment since it was originally built (1980s?), Wi-Fi varies between slow and non-existent, half the gym equipment doesn't work, bedroom could do with a fresh coat of paint, patio furniture grubby and scratched, etc..

Very good place to spend week. About 40 minutes north of the airport, and rather secluded. Steps from the red sea, there is a marina as well. Only a few restaurants and activities. Great place to let the kiddies splash in the sea.

Hotel condition and cleanliness not to bad. Hotel staff polite but not very forthcoming with information. Service was very slow with Saudi's regularly being served in front of you. When we arrived it was the school holidays and the hotel was full to bursting. The noise in and out of the hotel went on all night till 3 and 4... More

Stayed here in Feb-March 2011. The place is deserted Saturday to Wednesday, and packed on Thursday and Friday. About 40 minutes north of the airport, and rather secluded. Steps from the red sea, there is a marina as well. Only a few restaurants and activities. Great place to let the kiddies splash in the sea.

if you want to have fun and swim in or out in the sea you can go to the Durrah but you have to check if it was new villa or not 'cause the new villas are the cleanest.

I use Trip Advisor often when I travel and wasn't expecting much after I read the reviews for this hotel. As soon as I arrived I was pleasently surprised. I don't think some people have seen soviet or communist architecture because this place is not in that category. More European colonial I would say. The first and most important point... More

I wrote an earlier - since removed - scathing review based on first impressions, but subsequently warmed a little to the place. it does have a very forbidding eastern-europe-in-the-1950s aspect to it. But given it's in Saudi Arabia, what more can we expect? They don't do seaside in the middle east, so i suppose this is as good as it... More
