I was staying for week on a course. I found the overall quality of staff to be very good, with many excellent. I was very impressed to see management engaged, and I even got a follow up email to my comments. Impressed.... I think the facilities are very good, the staff make it better. A good place for families it seemed, and also seemed like an excellent place to take a break from DXB or AUH. Taxis were not readily available at times, but the front desk could organise, and I had saved one man's number. One side of the hotel had no reception to DU (one of two local companies) so I recommend asking first if your foreign mobile is linked to them. If UAE resident, you must also select manual on network select, as the upper floors will connect to Oman telco's quite easily, leading to very expensive charges.
Overall, I think the facility is definitely 5 * and value for money if you are looking to be out of the city centre, this is a resort in all senses and meant to be enjoyed. I thought some of the negative comments previously made about the facilities being outdated were unwarrented. I look forward to returning. Regards,
