From the airport greeter that met us as we stepped off of the plane and escorted us through immigration and customs to our check out we felt pampered and cared for by the staff. This hotel is absolutely beautiful and like a sparkling fantasy that could easily have been the setting for one of Scheherazade's tales.
We stayed in a Gulf Summer House Suite with a great view of the ocean. The bathroom was huge and beautiful as was the suite. Internet connection was complimentary, fast, and reliable. The canals and boats are a lovely way to get around the resort and the atmosphere is intoxicating. We felt it struck the perfect balance between a romantic resort and a family friendly resort. There are tons of things to do here. It is a huge complex though and while the Summer Houses are small and intimate the resort complex is enormous and it can be confusing at first.
Food is a bit hit or miss depending on the restaurant, and reservations are a must. We had difficulty getting reservations for some of the restaurants when we arrived so I would recommend planning ahead and booking before you leave home if you are visiting during the high season. Room service was quick and efficient. The breakfast buffet at the restaurant by the pool was average but the service was great.
Overall we thought it was a terrific choice and would recommend the resort without hesitation particularly to families traveling with children.
