Quiet setting, close to the airport and a 5 minute drive to the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. We arrived early and were informed our rooms weren't ready yet. Famished from a day of traveling I retreated to the pool to relax and grab some lunch. However, neither the restaurant or pool were serving food for another hour. Unfortunately, the quiet setting also means there is nothing you can access without a bit of a taxi ride. The infinity pool was quite relaxing though with great views and a hot tub close by. Once I was able to order food it took an extremely long time to get it but was tasty. That night I ordered room service and it was quite the opposite, fast but not very tasty. I found poolside service to be slow the rest of the stay as well. Even a simple glass of wine took 20 minutes.
The rooms themselves are very nice. Spacious, comfortable, large bathroom, office area and couch. I slept comfortably and enjoyed my view from the balcony. The staff was very helpful and warm. I enjoyed my stay minus the quirks.
