We had booked four rooms at Tilal Liwa on October 25-26 for me and my family to celebrate my husband’s birthday. Dealing with the hotel was never tricky, all my inquiries (communicated by email) from the time I asked about the rooms availability till the finalization of the reservations had been very promptly and professionally handled by Tilal Liwa, I wish to thank Selimkhan for that.
We got a call from the hotel (Selim) a couple of days before our arrival informing the possibility of getting the rooms later than the check in time - @2pm (they had accomodated big groups the night before our visit) and to compensate, they offered us to have late checkouts. I appreciate the hotel effort as this could had been a major disappointment if we only found it out on the day of our visit.
We had the rooms which have direct access to the pool. The rooms are well laid out, clean, have comfortable bed, acceptable furnishings and a mini fridge. The rooms and the facilities are generally good for a 4-star hotel, though it could have been better if they will put some lighting inside the cupboards and could be more generous in providing the room amenities and toiletries.
Tilal Liwa is 2 hours’ drive from Abu Dhabi City, but I can say that the long drive is indeed all worth it. In fact it is a good place to spend the weekend with the family and hibernate from the city. Having said that, Tilal Liwa is catered for adults and kids alike.
We had fun swimming in their nice infinity pool, had marvelous quad bike experience in the sand dunes, my elder kids did enjoy flying kite and my little one had a good time at their Kid’s Corner.
We had breakfast and dinner at their main restaurant, I could say that the food choices and quality are satisfactory. And during the dinner, the hotel arranged a complimentary birthday cake for my husband.
Well, as for me, I am now missing the hammock and the sun beds right in front of the rooms we stayed in at Tilal Liwa.
