We "me and my wife" visited the resort in April, even though is was the middle of the week, there was so many kids running all over the place, all the swimming pools were filled with families dipping in water fully clothed while their kids annoy others, there is no "relaxation" to have in Danat Al Ain, the noise reach to your room even if you close your windows.
If you have booked through a website or using a voucher, you will receive less favorable treatment than other customers, all above being very bored with the empty nightclub at "LUCE", the whole place practically shut off at 10 pm, because the kids are asleep early to wake you up at 8 in the morning

I had an opportunity to stay at the Danat Al Ain, due to a business trip a few days back. It is a large property, plenty of walking possible. Three pools including child friendly versions, so can be quite relaxing. It is 'positioned' as a resort, but let us face it - in the middle of a desert, only so much human intervention can achieve. So do not expect lush waterfalls and grand views on the horizon.

Thursday and Friday nights can get terribly busy, as the Italian restaurant changes into a discotheque at 11 pm. This brings in droves of regular and some 'working' folks in. So, if having a drink and a dance is your fancy, it is available right where you stay. Sound proofing of the rooms is really good, as no sounds from the dance floor reached the room where I stayed, which was just 1 floor above.

The breakfast is a very hearty affair and has a wide spectrum of choices available, including pork for the non-Muslims. Omar, the main chef is well spoken, affable and tends to be around to oversee and ensure quality is maintained. They also have good restaurants which serve Indian & Arabic food choices.

The rooms are very comfortable, with sit outs on the balcony, though as I mentioned previously, there is not much to view. If you need the mini-bar to be stocked, you will have to inform the hotel staff in advance.

Plenty of parking, if you are willing to walk a little. The shaded parking which is closer proximity to the entrance is always full and valet parking is probably a better choice, if you want to avoid the hassle of trying to find an unoccupied space for your car.

Both check in and check out were smooth processes in my case.

Room Tip: The resort tends to get full on the weekends (Friday/Saturday), so make your bookings in advance if you want to avoid a disappointment.

The Al Danat is an extremely welcoming and comfortable hotel. The staff are very helpful, warm and welcoming. Parking is plentiful as are the taxis if you do not wish to drive. The grounds of the resort are well cared for, the swimming pools cater for all levels of swimmers including the kids. The waterfall by the pool bar is a really nice attraction and good for immediate cool down when it gets too hot in the sun. The rooms are well appointed, and have their own balcony, size of which is dependent on room type. Rooms are modestly furnished, my one fault was that there was only one easy chair in the room, not ideal when there is two people. But that was only a minor fault. The bed is luxurious, no bad backs getting out of this bed, very comfortable.
The hotel has numerous restaurants, ranging from traditional Arabic food, Italian, Sea food, and Indian as well as pub grub in the Horse and Jockey. They also gave a spa, gymnasium and beauty parlour. The foyer has a small range of shops and a coffee lounge. If you don't fancy eating out then room service is available 24/7.
This is an excellent hotel as per a couple, do not know as regards amenities for families.
Nice comfortable friendly hotel in the Garden City.

Room Tip: Garden rooms have access to the garden, ideal if you have kids Book rooms away from the restaurant area as the Italian restaurant Luce, becomes a night club around 11 or 12 and can be quite noisy.

We stayed there for a day at the hotel. The distinguishing part of the hotel is the service. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Truly a family hotel with a very nice Olympic size pool. The breakfast is good as well with good choice of restaurants, specially Tanjore. Recommend the hotel for a stay action or otherwise.

DANAT hotel in Al Ain was awful. The room was old and dingy. The curtains would not open. The bathroom was clean but ver out dated. I do not know why they call it a resort. It did not any of the amenities that you expect from a resort. The shower was a great hazard. The water would turn to scalding hot or ice cold without you touching anything. The restaurants were too mediocre and way too expensive. I will never ever go back. The only good thing was the young man who cleaned out room. He was super polite and respectful.

Room Tip: Do not go to this hotel.
