The selection is huge, the quality of food is great and the service is very friendly. It isn't cheap but worth it!! Despite the crowd everything goes smoothly and the buffet is always full of food. Great band was playing during our brunch.

We ate dinner twice at Arboretum during our stay at Dar al Masyaf villas. It was one of the included restaurants in the free halfboard summer offer, so I'm not sure how much the buffet would cost. The buffet is very nicely presented, on different buffet islands there are sushis and salads, arabian appetizers, meat carving station, different hot food... More

Our recent visit was not as good as it used to be. There was a different band - music was too loud and the prosecco was sweet and unpleasant. Think it's better to go in the winter months when the set up is outside.

What a fantastic array of choice, great atmosphere, but above all such great service. The word "No" does not exist in this hotel, and more so the restaurant - with kids and difficult food requirements, Rory Murphy, amazing host and manager played an impressive part in ensuring no meal went unsatisfied - if there was something you fancied that was...

During our stay at Al Qasr we visited for breakfast every day and for the Friday brunch. Each time we couldn't get over the quality and variety of food available in the buffet. It's definitely the best breakfast buffet we've encountered (and we've encountered a few)! So much available and little touches like a different smoothie being handed to you... More
