We stayed in the Al Bander hotel and got a good room with balcony overlooking the pool and sea. Breakfast is great, Enjoyed the beach and our favorite was the Lazy river. But the room was located very far from the elevator.

After trekking up Jebel Shams, camping under the stars and wadi bashing the Shangri-la was was a welcome retreat. The resort has all you could ever ask for - 5 star rooms, many restaurants and bars, white sandy beach, multiple pools, a lazy river to cruise and a luxurious health spa. All this set against the dramatic rocks and mountains...

It was a very pleasant stay! The hotel is huge and you will find everything in the hotel you need. It is perfect for families, couples and business! Breakfast is great! Only criticism would be for the ridiculously long corridors in the Al Bandar complex.
