I stayed at the Al Ain resort and hotel for over three months.  I found the experience one of the most luxurious and peaceful I have had.  The rooms are of the highest standards and the cleaners do a fantastic job with close care taken to lay out the room to your personal taste.  The bars and restaurants fulfilled my...

Having had a bad experience with brunch the first time here, it was a while since we went back again. We were always told the food was good but in this instance it was very basic. We went to the horse and jockey, a bar inside the danat, the venue is really dark and has a 1980's style pub decor,... More

I recently visited the Oasis Cafe at the Danat Resort in Al Ain - and was delighted with the prompt service, DELICIOUS food, and viewings of the World Cup!!

The Danat Al Ain Resort is a great place to stay on business or on holiday. The rooms are a good size, ask for a high floor to get the best views and be as far as possible from the lively night club and pub. Balconies are small but ok for a couple of chairs. The pool area is superb... More

We stayed there for one night. Arrived late at night and left early in the morning. Felt like a nice place but we didn't have the time to explore it. There is valet parking, service is really good, free wifi. The room was very spacious and interior is beautiful.

Staying for one night in June 2014. In a deluxe connecting room. 3 adults and 4kids. Everything was going fine until 1030pm. When a restaurant/cafe in the garden by the swimming pool decided to open a disco right in the middle with music blaring. Despite complaining twice to the front desk there has been no change in the noise level.... More

Have been saying here over the Intercontinental management as well as the recent Danat management. Under the Intercontinental brand the hotel was becoming decidedly 'tired' and my understanding is that they baulked at the potential cost of full refurbishment. Danat, I presume, have been responsible for the refurbished foyer area and new carpets but the place is now in need... More
