“Old hotel, good location, friendly staff.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

We were four couples, with about 10 kids with ages ranging from 4 to 19 year old. Everyone came back after a two day stay in hotel, happy and pleased with the 2 day weekend experience.

The first impression is not very impressive, as the hotel is quite old, however the warmth and friendliness of the staff, especially Rabiha and John in the front office and the very courteous porters.

We were very pleasantly surprised by the quality and variety of food offered for breakfast, which should cater to every taste. The breakfast was included in the price of the room.

The hotel's swimming pool is very big and very clean with plenty of sitting area for sun-bathers or for those who seek a shaded area, there is spacious area where you can enjoy a cold drink, or a light meal.

The hotel has its own private beach which is sandy and quite clean.

You can enjoy a game of cards with friends, as we did, in the cafe near the lobby, and the quality of service provided by the staff is to be complimented.

To sum up, it is a great hotel for the price we paid, but you should go there with an open mind and no great expectations, and maybe you will have as an enjoyable experience as we had there!

Room Tip: Although the hotel advertises "sea view rooms" however, the view is through a narrow windo...

I used to give nice comment to the place which I visited; but not for this hotel.
Let me start with the positive side:
- They have a nice private beach and garden area which you can relax. Also they have big swimming pool.
- Breakfast spread out quite good with many variety. The staff at breakfast area was friendly
The negative side:
- Reception cannot handle busy check in. We booked for 3 rooms and they are trying to downgraded the deluxe room which we booked for. Though nothing much different between the deluxe and standard room.
- Bed is very small. not even queen size for standard room.
- When you request something, they will always start with "We don't have", but when you really insisting or start to complain than the room instantly available.
- The lady supervisor/manager at the reception promising all the guest who request for sea view to come back at 5 o'clock. How if the guest turn up at 5 o'clock, what will she do?
- Beverage price is very expensive. AED 20 for bottle of water.
- Hotel is too old and also bed smell... all rooms smoking room... they don't have non smoking room.
- The room did not sound proof at all. our room was connected with another guest which very noisy at night.
- The need more than 8 hours to scan your ID/Passport. I was worry that they missed place my ID. After the third times back to reception, then only they found my ID which not yet scan.

Overall this hotel still far away from 4 star category.

Dear Gepurple,

Thank you for sharing your positive feedback regarding our beach, garden, breakfast and staff at our All day Dining restaurant AL RAHALA.
I have also taken a careful note of your comment regarding the bed smell, service at the reception and water bottle being expensive. We have spent a considerable amount of time and money continuously upgrading our facilities, the comfort of our guests is our sole focus. I regret they did not meet your expectation.
Should your travel bring you back to Ras Al Khaimah, I will be happy to show you around whatever things we have planned to change or may be changed by the time you will be here.
I apologize for any inconvenience.

Stayed in a standard room and rooms are very small and they were facing a road crowded with people and vehicles. Rooms and well as the equipment like TV, minibar seems to be old.
There was a power disruption of about 15 min in one section of the room and however technical guys fixed it on our notification.
Swimming pool and their aqua bar is good. They have a private beach as well and few water sports are also available like jet ski, kayaking.
Hotel has 3 night clubs and a sports bar. Night club called Amigo seems to be ok with a Filipino band and with good DJ music. Other two clubs are Indian and Bangali and seems to be funny and cheap.Hotel even has a liquor store where you can buy any brand of liquor unlike in most of the hotels in the UAE.
Our checkout was delayed as there were some additional charges in our bill. Apparently we were not the only people who had issues and therefore keeping track of your additional expenses are highly recommended.

Dear Mr. Gamage,

Thank you so much for your very kind feedback. We are truly grateful for the things you have said about our swimming pool, beach, water sports, aqua bar and amigos club.

I have discussed the matter with our chief engineer about your rooms’ power disruption and assure you that we will take utmost care so that this does not occur in future.
I have noted your feedback about the front desk services and rooms equipment s though our TV’s are all new. I regret they did not meet your expectation.

I have also taken careful note of your comment regarding the Indian and Bengali club (leased outlets). I have shared the feedback with the management of the club. They have assured the hotel that they will look into their standards and train their teams to deliver better. Thank you for bringing it to our notice.

I came with friends to enjoy the beach. The hotel is cheap for a reason. If you have any standards at all for a hotel do not stay there. I have no idea what these other reviews are talking about. This place was a dump. The food was garbage and we waited forever for it to come. The rooms need updating. All the furniture is old and outdated. I have nothing positive to say about this hotel besides the pool was nice.

Room Tip: Do not spend extra for a Deluxe room with higher floors and views. There arent any views not obstruc...

Location - 1.5 hour from dubai international airport. Taxi to dubai gold souk 60$ one way. To ferrari world (abu dhabi) - 100$ one way.
Food: A lot of cheap arabic/afganian/etc. restaurants near this hotel plus pizza hut and KFC. And Very good hotel breakfast, i loved it so much!
Sea and beach: clean, good for children!
Rooms: clean, big enough, renovated, but without balcony, and you cant open the window.
Temperature in february was +25, sea was a bit cold for me :)
So, i advice this hotel to the people, who want swimming, sunbathing and forget about the noise of the big city :)

Visited RAK and had to do a last minute booking. Paid AED600 for a triplet with breakfast. I didn't receive the reservation via e mail and had to call the hotel 6 times! I was surprised by seeing the standard of the room and the bathroom. I requested for a kingsize bed but they provuded twin beds.The worst was the A.C was not working. We called several times and informed but they couldn't fix it. We couldn't sleep in the night and requested for another room. When we check out they billed for something which wasn't in the room at the first place!

Room Tip: A.C is not working properly on the 4th floor. So try to avoid. There's no great view if you get...
