This is a resort as it is three hotels in the same seaside bay with a lot of shared facilities. We stayed in the Al Husn which is for adults, families stayed at the other two hotels. The Al Husn is a good five stars but I think the other two are more like 4#. We had a deluxe sea...

This was our 4th stay in a period spanning 6 years. It did not turn out to be the same as we had experienced on past visits. In comparison, we found less satisfaction in the areas of parking, amenities in room, displayed information, breakfast. It is pricey as before if customer comes on his/her own and not as a part...
