“Great holidays!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

The hotel is very nice and especially recommendable for families with small children. The rooms are big and nicely furnished. The service is very good, especially in the main restaurant and the Mai Tai bar (only the service in the beach restaurant as well as the restaurant itself could be improved). The garden and the beach are wonderfull, the sea is carebean like. We would love to come back!

Room Tip: The superior rooms in the garden, especially at the beach are great. The "corner rooms" ar...

Stayed here with the family for a week in december. Place fulfilled most our expectations and overall we were pleased and consider coming again.

First the location: This is one hour drive from Dubai. Hotel offers minbus to Emirates Mall at 70 aed if you do not have rental car. I would suggest getting one as rental is really affordable. Traffic is fluent with occasional speeding lunatics, so keep alert. Near hotel is Al Hamra shopping mall with foodcourt, supermarket..and yes: liquer store. The distance from hotel to shopping mall is couple kilometers, but walking is hell during daytime, so ask hotel shuttle.

Why is the mall good: Eating at Hilton is expensive compared at what you pay eating at the mall. We only had braekfast, so picknick lunch saved a bunch.

Hotel has two smallish pools but is right at the beach which we found to be much nicer. Sunchairs were plentiful.

Rooms were really spacious and clean in the villas. Rooms in the Hotel complex I did not see but are smaller.

Food is plentiful if you take fullboard. Arabic dishes in the buffet were nice but might be problem with little kids not used to it.

Hotel has free for guests tenniscourts and gym wich was quite good, smallish but modern equipment. Take your own tennis raquets and book time after 5pm and you are ok.

After we arrived home we got but bites in shins mostly, our youngest kid had really nasty symptoms. We did not see any bugs, but suspect the sand at the beach..

Weather was: Sunny. Really dependable.

Near the Hotel are several waterparks. We visited Iceland waterpark that is nearesr, just 10 min drive. Big and nice, definately good day out. In addition to us we counted 10 other people visiting the park...really not parks fault.

Overall, recommended.

We spent two weeks here in November and December. The hotel area have lots of buildings with rooms and a nice garden with lots of flowers. The beach is just 50 m from the hotel.
The room was big with two king size beds. All the personal are very helpful and professional. The breakfast and dinner was plentiful and varied. There is a shopping malls within walking distance from the hotel. I can highly recommend this hotel.

We spent a week here in November. We had a garden room which was lovely 2 king size beds huge bathroom, lots of wardrobe space. We were bed and breakfast which suited us. Breakfast was plentiful and varied ( loved the flavoured water). We had a round of golf, we spent an afternoon on the beach and watched the sunset,
On the down side the noise from the hotel next door was annoying, and also the sheets were not changed once in the week we were there, I was a little perturbed too as when the sheets were pulled back there was an old blood stain on the bottom sheet, which should have been noticed when the sheet was put on the bed in the first place.
All the staff were very friendly and polite and helpful. Free wifi in the rooms would have been a bonus as the cost was very high to have this in the room. It was free in the lobby and restaurant but that meant having to spend breakfast on the iPad!
On the whole it would be somewhere we would consider staying again in the future.

Except for the problem of changing the original room i booked which it is handled by high professionalism. This is an excellent hotel with all its services and facilities.
I recommend front beach rooms on half board basis.

Beach front rooms will allow you to easily access the beach and you can find in your room all required facilities and amenities.
The building is just a few meters from the beach, but you enjoys beautiful sea views.
Excellent and rich meals and satisfy all.

Room Tip: Beach front half board

There are 6 Hilton properties in RAK, and I decided on this one because it offered direct access to the beach and a better rate than the resort in downtown RAK and quite obviously the WA next door.
I do not think I regretted it except for the first hour when we got a run down room.
Our initial room was a Garden view Villa room and the main thing that struck me was how dark the room was with only 2 dim light sources). We were told by the reservations dept that all rooms in the main building and the villas were renovated around the same time, but that cannot be true as the villa room, particularly the bathroom fittings were very dated.
If you decide on a villa room, the ones that are worth it are the ones directly on the beach, ours was a good 2-3 minutes walk away.

Anyways, while our initial impression was not good, Ms Rupal, the FD Asst Manager came to the rescue and gave us a room in the main building which was absolutely stunning in every aspect. It felt and smelt new, was spacious and well furnished, and had a great view of the lagoon. Ms Rupal was extremely efficient throughout our stay and is definitely an asset to the hotel.
The hotel has a lot of things going for it; the beach is natural and extensive, the common areas (both indoors and outdoors) are relaxing and well kept. There is a mall 15 minutes walk away, and the breakfast/dinner buffets were both very good.

While villa rooms on the beach seem to offer the most wow factor, the ones in the main building
are good in every other way; offering proximity to facilities and feeling newer. Villas far from the beach offer the worst of both worlds. The only possible downside to some rooms in the Main Building would be the ones directly on top of the bar.
One disappointment, which unfortunately Hilton Inc. properties in the UAE continues to insist on, is the extremely expensive wifi charges. 80 dhs/~$22 for 24 hrs of browsing is a shame. We stayed for 2 nights, but for someone staying a few more, spending so much on wifi is money down a drain
Checkout was hassle free thanks to Ms Alison, and the Hilton Hamra is IMO one of the best value 5* beachside resorts in the UAE

Room Tip: Don't choose Villa Garden view rooms unless the rate is very very good. Rooms in the main buildi...
