My family of four, 12 year old boy and 8 year old girl, will likely never celebrate another Christmas in such a beautiful place! We were amazed and floored by the hotel and the staff. This must be how Royalty live! Really incredible experience that we will never forget! The buffets met everyone's tastes, the activities (dune bashing, falconing, camel...

Loved every minute of my stay. Highlights were the extremely courteous and helpful resort staff, the evening views of the dunes, and the high quality of the sand. The food was wonderful, although certainly on the expensive side. The rooms have a stunning design. Hotel occupancy is under 300 for a site the size of a small city. The gym...
