Food was very good - buffet style with plenty of choices and hot food cooked fresh for you. Wifi free but poor coverage.

I stopped off for a night here.First impressions were a Dubai esque faux fort,but the interior had a little more authenticity. The room was excellent with a lobby and jacuzzi. All it needs for a top score is a kettle in the room.....It's a long trek to the bar.

Room was fine but it's a big hotel with lots of rooms and corridors, wifi worked ok but as with all top hotels it's usually slow. We used the pools and only stayed overnight as we were visiting a restaurant and did not want to drive home after drinking. Had a beer and a sandwich in the bar which I... More

We spent seven nights at this hotel at the end of September, using it as a base for our property search in the area.The room was very large, nicely furnished, but the bathroom is very tired. Breakfast was excellent and we tried the on-site Japanese restaurant, which was also very good. Lunch at the poolside restaurant was poor. The menu... More
