We stayed here after a long trip from Chicago. So needed heat, relaxation and to seriously kick back! Well it was perfect for that.
Normally my partner and I always place important emphasis on location, being able to to walk to restaurants and bars. Well we decided this time to do the opposite and that to stay in the middle of the desert surely would make us relax. There's nothing around you, so less choices sometimes is relaxing. Either eat in the hotel restaurant at night, or cook in the apartment. We did both. The restaurant was reasonably good, not expensive. The night we cooked was just lovely too. We sat on our ground floor terrace overlooking the beautiful desert, golf course and twinkling stars. What could be nicer!
The accommodation was lovely and great value for money. It seemed all very brand new and tasteless decorated. There was a dining room and kitchen with everything you need, inc dishwasher and washing machine/dryer. So overall everything was very convenient.
We stayed on block 5 which was nice as it had great views over the desert and golf course. I loved the scenery. Next to our room were barbecue facilities, and also table tennis table and a pool table.
As the resort was spread out, and although walkable to each part of the hotel, there is a cart facility which picks you up and takes you everywhere. As it was soooo hot, 104 degrees, we called for the cart as everyone seemed to do. They come straight away.
Overall, great for total relaxation, great desert scenery and heat.
