Firstly I love trip advisor and would not stay anywhere without checking it out on here first so thought it only fair to share my lastest Trip.
Mina a salam was an amazing hotel, as others have mentioned your credit card details are taken by reception on check-in and a tab of AED 3,000 is opened, but my tip would be to pay off the bill at the end of each day (pay in cash) otherwise you may get a nasty suprise at the end of your holiday as drinks are not cheap but are essential esp around the pool! first day spent nearly £100! on some bottles of water, two sangrias and light snack at the pool! also that way you will not get charged from your card issuer either.
On reading others reviews I was aware that some had been given views of scrubland from the deluxe rooms, so in advance I contacted the hotel directly to ask if at all possible that we were NOT given a room with this view and was told they would make a note of it and do their best. Sadly upon arrival to our room discovered we had been given a scrubland room! now I know you don't really spend much time in your room but I did request a better view and the hotel was not full and just disapointed with the hotel on this one point.
Went mid june, very hot but bearable, ALWAYS a lounger by the pool & beach which never seemed crowded which is great considering the size of the complex.
Hotel and complex very tidy and ALL staff were amazing! lovely people. We pre-booked afternoon tea at the Burj Al arab direct with the hotel (AED 425 which is same as al Muna brunch!) golf buggy from Mina took us there and well worth the trip to the Skybar.
Amazing hotel and would love to return when my baby is a little older as the hotel seemed great for families and couples. Can't wait to go back! keep up the good work
