The al hamra is on the outside of rak - about 15 minutes drive from the city.

Dubai is about 50 minutes drive from the al hamra - depending on the time of day. Its possible to get there handily enough in a taxi - the hotel will probably run day trips. If you want to be in dubai you wont be.

July will be pretty hot - in the 40's - so you will need to stay close to a pool to cool down or else be indoors.

Rak in July might be a bit quiet. Its too hot to do too much out doors during the daytime other than hop in and out of a pool.

Manar mall in RAK is fine - not vast but pretty good for shopping.

Going to dubai all the malls are fine for wandering around as they are cool.
