We arrived at the hotel midnight, and left at 8am. The passport and immigration through airport with a British passport at this time of night was swift and painless. As our transit was for less than 12hrs with Etihad, there was no need to collect cases. Getting a taxi outside airport was easy as there were plenty of them. The taxi ride from airport to hotel took 10mins and cost 25 dirhams. Checking at the hotel was quick and efficient. Staff are very welcoming and extremely polite. We got to our room on the 8th (top) floor within 10mins of arriving. We had a very spacious well equipped room poolside of hotel. The room was spotlessly clean and luxuriously comfortable, with a large bed with high quality bedding. The bathroom, again spacious, was perfect, with large fluffy towels and bathrobes. The only problem we had was we could not connect to the wifi. We were to tired to be bothered and just wanted to sleep in the fabulous bed. We had a 6:30 alarm call, as we did not trust setting the alarm clock in room, to catch our connecting flight. We stepped out onto the spacious balcony to a stunning outlook over golf coarse and water. The bathroom was a pleasure to use with shower over large bath, with good pressured hot water. There are plenty of high quality toiletries supplied, which is what you need when you don't have your luggage. There was a large range of complementary hot drinks in room with kettle and coffee machine which was perfect with no time for breakfast. Also one large and two small bottles of water were provided. Only having 5.5hrs sleep we left room totally refreshed for our onward journey. Checkout was also swift. Taxi was immediately brought to the hotel, doors opened for us, and we were on our way back to the airport. The taxi ride back to airport took 15mins and cost 20 dirhams.
