Went to stay for two nights with family, but had to cut our stay for one night only. Rather disappointed with the poor maintenance of rooms. Bathroom supplies are bare minimum, two tiny towels and few soaps. No water, no complementary breakfast - even though the room charges are as high as five stars. The biggest disappointment is the swimming... More

Due to the fact that it's the only hotel in Durrat Alaroos, and the strategic location on the sea and next to the Durra famous Marine, the service is not appropriate at all, specially for a "4 star" hotel. Also, room furniture is realy old, and breakfast is very limited and small. Pool and beach are nice, clean, big. But,... More

The one and only fun place in saudi arabia. Nice hotel, villa, food, entertainment etc. Very good service, the marina is super loot of entertainment and food options. Do not ask for alcohol, you can get a non alcoholic beer thats about it.

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..

since i work in saudi and due to the closed atmosphere i usually go for week ends in this resort, its comfortable with good rooms, staff is not that much friendly, the place contains swimming pool, gym, restaurant, most of the rooms have good view i belief its good place for being in saudi arabia

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.
