Overall:
The best looking hotel in kish, best resort space but few other hotels offer better service. Could be a great hotel with a more professional management.

Pros:
Great surrounding, resort and garden
Fine pool when it works
Good location
Great view

Mediocre service
3 star level rooms

For me it was the third time to make a trip to Kish island and the first time residing in Dariush Grand hotel.Let's go exactly to the points.Before arrival you are welcomed by a foul smelling odor of sewage refinary center. Quality of the rooms depend not only to their view (sea view more attractive than garden view ) but also to their floor ( the higher the better ) which is unfortunately ignored at the time of booking. Receptionists do not show full coordination to provide side to side rooms in the same floor ( if you've booked more than one room). Dariush hotel is not as old as it appears. Semi dark corridors show you the way to the room. The first thing that comes to the sight in your room is its view.Soooo AMAZING! Wonderful sea and the beach invite you to not waste the time! but when you try to get to the shore you'll find out that the beach in front of the hotel is surrounded by a wall providing a somehow private beach for men only! You have to walk for a while to get access to the beach where swimming is not allowed ! You can rent bikes from the hotel itself with lower quality and higher prices ! If you go to your third degree room for some rest you can see that the atmosphere is full of food odores and very loud sound of live music being played in th restaurant.Why? Because of the location of food court. Just in the middle of the hotel.Entrance of restaurant and women's toilet is side to side and needless to say anything about the outcome! It must not be ignored that hotel and its surroundings is full of sculptures trying to bring Perspolis in mind but they are not able to fully cover the negative points. It must be noted that room prices are equivalent to their quality so I think that the mistakenly given 5 stars is the main cause of mislead of tourists to choose this hotel. Wish you a good time in KISH island!

Room Tip: Choose rooms on sea view side and higher floors

It's a 5 star hotel with a beautiful garden , many columns and sculpture adapted from Perspolis ( Shiraz ) that you can imagine part of Great empire of Iran in Achamened period. The hotel has a great view to Persian Gulf . You can relax and enjoy your breakfast or dinner with a good sea view. Interior decoration and architecture is also magnificant. Outdor pool is for men and not women.
The rooms need some renewal.

Although it is the best hotel of Iran, but its service and rooms are far from 5 stars hotels in other countries. Sculptures and beautiful garden make it attractive. Its indoor pool was closed. Beds quality are not good. Some problems are related to Islamic rules in Iran. Its location is excellent near the Persian Gulf beach.

Good hotel, a few people of the staff can speak english, The rest of them only Persian.
The food the serve as a buffet in the morning and for lunch. For what the are making the quality is not bad. For the price compare to the value I think it is fare for Iran. The aircondition is a little bit old and noisy, so don't forget you're earplugs ( this is for all the hotels in Iran old and noisy). It is a beutiful hotel off the outside and the inside but it can use some improvements, It is getting older and it can use some new seats and tables.

the hotel is great from outside and the lobby is like a palace,i don't think even the president'palace in tehran be that majestic and well decorated.the restaurant inside that mostly is for breakfast is so nice and the hotel is close to the beach and the garden and the balcony have wonderful view,but when it comes to the rooms it's not as wonderful as the other hotels are.i think it's the best hotel in iran,specially with the unique persepolis like architecture.

Room Tip: rooms with sea views are better
