Rain in the desert - never! WRONG!!! Rained on and off all weekend and on the way back to Abu Dhabi - torrential rain.
However, in the middle of this (apparently) unusual weather there was indeed an Oasis of brightness - the Danat Al Ain Resort. Decor maybe a little tired in places, not shabby by any means, just showing its age a bit in places. But, comfortable? Oh yes - very!
Stayed in a one bedroom apartment which was just home from home, spacious, comfortable, well equipped and had a choice of two small balconies from which to enjoy the rain. We ate in a couple of the restaurants and were very taken with the quality, quantity and variety of the food, breakfast was an absolute feast. Now we come to the real highlight of our stay, the staff at the Danat. They could not have been more helpful of attentive. From check in to check out we were looked after like royalty. Little lady in the restaurant by the name of Risa is an absolute treasure. She is the kind of person who will bring people back to the Danat - take note Mr Manager!
All in all, we could not reasonably find fault with the Danat, thoroughly enjoyed our stay there, despite the weather.
