Needs a new lease of life, the F/B used to be world class The course was always in excellent condition whilst the greens have always been on slower side depending on the time of year. No more challenge tour but still holds a mena event With a concession on the green fee with a coat of lokking at

Firstly, the staff and facilities are fantastic. From the moment the limousine drop you at the door the staff look after you. They take your clubs and put on the buggy, provide water with a cool box and place outside ready for your tee time. A challenging course with plenty of water so you need your A game to avoid...

We had "mango cremeux mille feuilles" for 30 aed/dish. It was the most dissappointing dessert from all aspects. The ingredients used are probably the cheapest, cream and compound (fats) being the entire dish. Simply put, they serve you a lot of air, and more air... Even their servers are laughing at the dish... Their deserts are a no-no ! Be... More

Beautiful landscape, surrounded by water. Exquisite setup for a perfect wedding. Absolutely gorgeous. One Downside: At midnite music had to be lower to 40 decibels. That's crazy. Wedding venue and you cannot dance after midnight? Hmmm. Doesn't make sense. There are no homes in the close proximity.

Went as a Family to enjoy the Brunch Package. Lots of other Families there too - with plenty of entertainment laid on for children of all ages. Great selection of meat, fish and salads - as much as you can eat. Similarly the drinks packages encouraged you to imbibe as much as you wanted. Service was excellent - both friendly... More
