We stayed at the Traders hotel for my husbands birthday weekend and we had a lovely stay. We booked a club room and upon arrival we received an upgrade. Our room overlooked the beach : ) which we took advantage of. The beach is well kept and the attendants were happy to help you setup and get comfortable in the heat.
On our first night we took a shuttle to the Shangri-La hotel for drinks overlooking the Grand Mosque. When we arrived back to our room there was a birthday cake waiting for my husband. Before arriving at the hotel the concierge helped me arrange a day in the desert as a surprise.
The staff at the hotel were friendly and a special mention to the attendant in the lounge, Tuan. Tuan was beyond helpful with our many questions.
The only negative I could fine with this hotel was the patio dining. Both times we ate outside there were a lot of what appeared to be fruit flies? The server did mention this before we sat, but it didn't stop us.
Overall a great stay and value for the money.
