My family and I visited the UAE for the first time from the US, and this resort was a great way to spend 5 days on the beach. We had intended on staying in Dubai, but this resort was a great alternative. It was away from the crowds of the big city, and very relaxing. We had a Jr. Suite with 2 sliding glass doorways to a large patio that was next to the pool. This resort is adjacent to the Al Hamra Palace Beach Resort. It is still under construction, but a 1/4 of it is open. We had access to the beach and all facilities at the Beach Resort. If you don’t want to walk the 200 yards to the Beach Resort they have a van that runs all day and night to drive you between.
The Staff was AWESOME! They were very friendly, and accommodating. The only issue we had with the room was no hot water the first morning, but they quickly resolved the problem, and compensated us for the inconvenience.
There is an English Pub on the property for the evenings with Guinness, Stella and many others on tap. Also 2 Beach bars. One on the upper pool deck and one on the beach.
We seemed to be the only tourist there from the US. Most were from Russia and Germany.
The beach was very nice, very clean and plenty of chairs and beds to go around.
We arranged transportation to and from the airport in Dubai ahead of time. The driver was waiting for us a the airport when we arrived. I would recommend this option.
Al Hamra Mall is very close, an easy walk, or a 5 Dirham taxi ride each way. The Hotel also offers a free shuttle in the evenings. There is a grocery store, and many other stores for you to shop. Bottled water in the room was complimentary, but sodas were very expensive 18 Dirhams per can ( $5 US.) You can get a 6 pack of soda at the grocery store for 9 Dirhams, and put them in the refrigerator in the room. A much less expensive option.
We went on a Desert Safari that was set up by the hotel for us. What an great experience! It was $1000 Dirhams ($275 US) for our family of 4, and worth every Dirham. They picked us up and dropped us off at the hotel.
We will definitely return.
