4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2011

The staff are very friendly but a bit slow in providing their services.
The resort has villas and hotel rooms, we rented a room, and it was good and had a lot of space. Although the bed sheet had what seemed like an unremovable stain everything else was clean and neat.
The villa have view over the beach, while the rooms have view over the swimming pools.
The beach wasn't the cleanest, a lot of empty water bottles and empty potato chip bags are all over the place. While the swimming pool was very clean and neat. mostly occupied by children with a life guard on constant watch. I saw a young girl being rescued there.
The location is good for people wanting to be away from the city but not completely isolated. Nearby sand dunes used by younglings for sand dune climbing competition with 4 wheel drive cars, fun to watch.
The buffet was good, but the room service food was far inferior.
Loved the location, food, and comfort of the room. Hated the slowness of the services.

Room Tip: All rooms view the swimming pools, Villas have direct view on the beach

Twenty years ago this location was great for a secluded swim and an occasional jet ski ! The same beautiful location is now serviced by this quality hotel , with unsurpassed food , service , friendliness making it a must stay when in the Eastern Province or indeed the Kingdom ! Of course a different "Flavour" to the Emirates hotels , but just like Saudi - SPECIAL !

Room Tip: I think you must have a room facing the Sea -
