We went on this holiday over christmas with family(7 of us) sharing one 1 bedroom villa and one 2 bedroom villa,Rooms are huge and well equipped however shower did flood the bathrooms often.,the spare bed is disapointing(pop up bed bunged in the middle of the living room)Prices were outrageous in some cases e.g a can of pepsi was 16 dirham(3 pound) and they charged you 5 pounds for ice .........do not buy chips they are cold and horrid,overall the food was dissapointing.unless you are a arctic diver then it takes a lot of nerve to brave the pool it is freezing even dipping your hands into the water... come morning or night. Quite far from local p.o.i and shops etc although setting was beautiful.The hotel was vertically in the middle of nowhere which is very hard to find for local cabbies.The hotel taxi staff are very friendly but dont be taken by them saying 'yes we know where that is' because they dont have a clue,we told the cab driver for that day that we wanted to go to wadi adventure(a local water adventure 9ark on the al ain mountain(jabal hafeet) and he said "u no worry i take you there i know where it is" well he didnt it took us 2 hours minimum to get there there stopping at 5+ locations with him saying this is it(i suggest you visit)long journies were not a problem in the luxurious s class mercedes that the hotel owns as a cab.the sports club(Billiards,pool,computers,table tennis) is excellent however when we 1st arrived there a security guard said that we had to pay 7 pound(40 dirham) per person per hour--for our family 40 dirhams pp 2 hours=80 dirham for 7 nights for 7 people 80×7=560=7880 dirham(1500 pound) sure theres a maths error there but very tired but this is still exstautionate ..after friendlishly complaining they allowed us to gain entry to the club for free.There was Very little opperating staff.the water fountain was mouldy,smelly and had litter and spray cans in...there was many negatives but this was a good holiday overall !
