Booked 02 rooms at this property and was amazed with the "over the top" customer service skills that were offered to us. It felt like that was the Management led standards that each of these below mentioned Super Stars offered us and kudos not just to them but directives that come from the top..... We were not treated differently, but we understood that " this service delivery" was something that Staff at this property were made off... The standards of Safety and Covid protocols were well maintained. These Legends need to be commended for exemplary customer service skills displayed with Hospitality Language - Joanna - Customer Service Bella - Front Desk Sammi - Room Service Beverly, Jennifer , Mary, Chef Murugan,Chef Mithun ,Chef Ibrahim - Horizon Restaurant Thank you teams and Management at Khalidya Rotana for a fun filled safe and great time.

It was good to be back after 8 years. We've stayed here before when my kids were still small, and we can still sleep in one big bed. This time around, we spent a night at their Family room. And it was perfect. My kids had their own twin beds, while my husband and I had the king bed all to ourselves. Aside from the comfy beds and large space, I love that the room has a balcony, where we got to enjoy the majestic views of the Presidential Palace. After resting for an hour, we headed to the swimming pool to take a plunge. It was good that they were serving food at the poolside even during Ramadan. The only downside was that it took us an hour to wait for the staff to get our orders then wait for more than an hour to have our food served. In spite of that, we had a relaxing and fun time at the swimming pool. When we went back to our room, we were surprised to see a fruit platter on the table. It was such a sweet welcome gift. The next day, we woke up to the beautiful views and a hearty breakfast served in our room. We savored the moment. We still wanted to stay, but weekend is almost over. We look forward to our next Weekend Escape at Khalidiyah Palace Rayhaan by Rotana. Thank you for an amazing experience.
