“Great Service, Great Location and a wonderfully relaxing holiday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2010

Good stuff
The hotel is wonderful, staff cannot do enough to help you, so many pools you could sit by a different one each day, right on the beach so you can so beach-pool-beach as often a toddler changes their mind. Bars right by the beach too to help parental sand castle building. A great variety of food in the main restaurants for breakfast and dinner, lunch less so - but there are lots of other lunch restaurant options.
Could do better
Kids Club is rubbish at the moment (a converted hotel room where the main activities seem to be TV watching and playstation) but a new one due to open in the next few months.
The Virgin Rep unfortunately had their day off the day before our flight and the Virgin check in website went down the same day - bit of a shame they couldnt arrange 7 day cover.
We were there the weekend of the RAK marathan and it was so jammed on the Fri and Sat the perfect service definately slipped but there was still loads of food and spare sun loungers!
TOP TIP
We'll be going back and booking a beachfront villa next time! Feels like we've discovered a hidden gem.

i stayed in this beautiful resort with my wife, it is an excellent beach resort but if you want professional approach then sorry this place is isn't for you, I been to many hotels in world but this Hilton stands out ,as overall hotel is very good, staff is good but staff needs training in basics I can say that because i worked in hotels and bars initially in my career and good ones.I went to lobby bar staff were ok but they lack in training, other bar at lobby level is fantastic but again staff their need training and down their is another bar or disco whatever you want to tell is pathetic staff there don't know what they are doing they are clearly disgrace to bar business that's why no wonder the bar was empty. Rest food and beverage outlets were alright nothing special just these outlets got nice locations especially beach bars the beach bar was nice but again staff needs some serious trainig. overall i just want to sat that order straight drinks only cocktails here no body knows even simple cocktails they don't know how to make which is not acceptable at all in five star hotel. my check in and check out were ok .rooms were clean just there are too many kids around in main restaurant.on end note i want to say that if you want peaceful environment outside the city nice beach then this place is great but if you want overall five star experience then I wouldn't recommend it.

A scary entrance into ras al Khaimah, it looked like a building site, thought i'd be divorced on the spot as I'd booked the holiday. Once in the hotel complex, paradise, staff were brilliant, friendly and helpful. Cleanliness 5 *, staff wonderful, and never looked for tips ( have stayed in Egypt staff always looking for tips). Lots of space, lots of beach beds, pools clean and well qualified staff, kid rescued from pool whilst we were there. Close your door when the muslims worship, as my year old said ' that noise is freaking me out'. Took one tirp to the shopping centre, waste of time, others said go to the souk. Went to the resort with hubby and four kids, 16-7 years. Had a brill time, all inclusive package. would recommend it if you after a restful week. Food of a hight standard, inclusive wines and beers, and cocktails, even the non alcoholic ones lovely. Great entertainment in the bars at night. Would return in the morning!

A wonderful resort hotel with excellent access to pools, gardens and beach. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful and 'hosts' circulate to chat and make sure you're well-looked after.
One suggestion would be for them to have somewhere with 'baby-changing' (nappy-variety!) facilities in the public areas or restrooms.
beautiful grounds and plenty of sunbeds in either shade or on the beach.
It IS possible to drive to Dubai (90-100 minutes) but, why bother if you want to escape and enjoy this haven.

Such a beautiful location, great staff and food.
Would recommend highly to anyone, especially good if you have children.
The beach villas are excellent with a small luxurious lawn out front - then direct acess to the beach.
Try the Italian restuarant, the open ravioli was perfect.
This is a real gem in RAK!!

As a well travelled couple I would give 4 star.The beach is perfectect and very clean.We stayed in the chalets wich are directly on the beach, the layout of the chalet is good but in my opinion they require some TLC regarding the decore , they would be much improved with comfortable furniture on the patio.Guests that we spoke to confirmed the rooms in the new main building were beautiful, to put everyones minds at rest the resort is now complete.The food was very good as was the service.For anyone who has concerns about taking someone to this resort with mobility problems dont ,it is very flat,good access and a buggy service should you need assistance.The only down side to this hotel is the journey from the airport which takes a good hour by car a little longer by coach,and the area of Ras Al Khaimah is a little off putting but their alway has to be a compromise. It is well worth it. We will be rturning next year.

I stayed here the weekend of the RAK half marathon (for two nights) so it was fully booked but still they managed to cope very well. No queues for check in...I ordered a breakfast to my room for 5.45 am as I was doing the run...it was 10 minutes late and because of that it was complimentary!! Gorgeous breakfast including freshly squeezed apple juice. Chalets are beautiful. Ours was right at the edge of a beautiful pool which was really quiet. Breakfast were great as was the buffet in the same restaurant in the evening. (And it has vouchers in the Entertainer for 'Buy One Buffet Get One Free' which we availed of. Great selection of restaurants and bars and the pools are beautiful...huge and so clean. Beach was gorgeous. Staff were so friendly and helpful. Honestly, the whole experience was like a fabulous honeymonn. If you stay here please book a chalet or villa as opposed to staying in the main hotel. They are just beautiful. We paid 1470 dhs for 2 nights bed and breakfast for two. I've paid far more for hotels which were not in the same league as this one. Great for kids too with lots of kiddie pools and even a kiddie buffet at breakfast and dinner! Stay here for a fabulous time-will be back as soon as we can!!!
