We had the pleasure of dinning at Al Qasr brunch. When arriving the que to seating seems long, but after just a few minutes we where seated and the good experience started.

Me and my family attended the Friday brunch at Al Qasr and requested to sit in the Arboretum Terrace. We were lucky to get seats in a shaded area as the sun does get extremely hot as the day goes on but I would definitely recommend sitting outside as the Terrace is beautiful. The brunch consisted of 4 and a... More

Initially I thought this was quite pricey, however this is the best value and one of the nicest brunches I have ever had. The sea food was excellent and although many other food stations were available we never moved from the vast array of lobster, prawns, and fresh sushi which was incredible. Every time we took a couple of sips... More

Huge variety of food and drink on offer, high quality and carefully prepared. My tip is not to hurry but use the full 4 hours and try a little of everything on offer. We were seated inside but explored the outside food stations and bars and stayed on to explore the complex afterwards. The staff throughout the hotel were very... More

We found the selection was superb in the Arboretum, nice service even though you only need it for drinks, high chair for the child and pleasant atmosphere - though make sure you are not seated too close to enormous tables with parties with many many children. I though the seafood selection on the Thursday buffet was excellent and well presented.
