This is arguably one of the best hotels I've ever stayed at! The location of the hotel and scenery was just amazing and so beautiful. The hotel area was big enough to be able to walk around and even go for a job. The beach was really great, very nice gym, and the pool area amazing.The rooms were nice and spacious. We had a nice balcony with wonderful sea view. I also loved the bathroom, which was nice and spacious (but what's up with bathroom and sliding doors???)
We were also happy about the nice selection of restaurants, nothing overwhelming but everything was good and reasonably priced. The Piano Bar was really nice, with a really great and serious bartender making nice and innovative cocktails - highly appreciated. The breakfast was pretty amazing too. One thing that made the stay extra nice was the great service. Everyone was so nice, friendly and helpful. One thing that made the stay extra nice was the great service.

The hotel is divided in three different hotels. We stayed at the Al-Bandar which is located in the middle. I would recommend this to anyone who doesn't have children, al-Waha seemed more like the family hotel. We didn't see the al-Husn from inside but it looked pretty amazing too from the outside.
The only minus was the check-in experience was not very good, a bit impersonal and we didn't even find our room first. It was also a bit annoying that one of the days there was some kind of event on the lawn in front of our room with a group of 50 people playing loud games...
We also highly recommend the diving center - we went for a dolphin watching trip which was amazing! Staff were super friendly and it seemed like a very serious place!
