Having stayed at the mina a Salam prior to having children, we returned again staying at the Dar Al Maysaf with our 6 and 3 year old boys. On arrival there was a mess up with our rooms (travelled with in-laws) and our agent had only book 1 room, this was rectified by the hotel although it seemed to take ages after a long journey. The room was amazing and the butlers were all so helpful, we were in villa 27 which is quite far away from everything but the free golf buggies and abras mean that it doesn't matter where you are. Although at night we could hear some road noise. We had a half board deal which was amazing, some fab restaurants although book a day in advance if you can as the more popular ones get booked quickly. (pad Thai).
Our only moan is not about the hotel but we landed at 7am on Friday morning and queued for 1.5 hrs in passport control, not sure if it was because of the time and day, but was very frustrating.
We had a worry that our 2 busy boys would be too wild for such a nice hotel, but the hotel is very child friendly and the kids club amazing, they didn't want to leave.
The hotel offers a happy hour with complimentary drinks usually between 6-8pm, which is great to have on an evening served by the butler in the court yard, we can't wait to go back.
A huge shout out to Lydia and Wendy who were amazing butlers :-)
