I was little bit worried, when I made the booking in Hayat Plaza. as I had read the review made by guest who had stayed there in November 2009. I find the views expressed there are exagareted. I had been given a room in the Corinche side and I was astonished with the view thru the window, a blend of both water and the mountains which gives a good picturesque of Ras Al Khaimah. Eventhough the hotel doesn't gives an impression from outside the interiors are well furnished and lighted. We had food from both the restaurants in the hotel. The food were good in both but a little bit expensvie with the thai restaurant. During our stay we had requested for another room for one of my business collegue but was not available as the hotel was fully occupied. From my stay and experience in the hotel made me to understand and conclude that this hotel is priced average and gives value for your money.
