Ras Al Khaimah Hotel
Ranked #20 of 27 Hotels in Ras Al Khaimah
Reviewed April 5, 2014

Party of four on all inclusive package

Great time and will return

Downside
Virgin rep about as useful as a chocolate teapot
Be careful of accepting what some front reception staff say, as found out out they can speak with forked tongue

No other bad points
Room great, comfortable beds well appointed

The hotel is good and clean and I can honestly say that the general staff provide service with a smile. The restaurants have something for everyone. The beach is clean and sun beds aplenty with staff to provide sun shades

Overall a fantastic holiday, we will be back

Room Tip: Sea view room. All inclusive

The hotel is nothing special and value for money. I stayed only one night with my family and my first time but I was very well serviced by all of the staff, the room was very comfortable and quite reasonably priced.
10 minutes from beach and biggest shopping mall. Rooms are good and tidy. You can have pool or town/seaview.

one lovely night at this hotel. ambience is ok. the staff is neat and welcoming. even the room service was good. tried only the breakfast since it was with the deal, but next visit will not miss on the dinner part.

Room Tip: Should not refrain from trying out the meals here. They are really good.

I spent two nights at Ras Al Khaimah Hotel. The staff are helpful and welcoming and the atmosphere is relaxing.Nevertheless, it should be rated as a three-star hotel than than a four-star. The rooms are small and the furniture is old. Additionally,the food should be more varied so as to cater for most tastes. I would recommend this hotel for families as it is a family-oriented hotel.

The rooms are not very huge, but clean and neat. The hotel is quite old already and will have hard time to survive with so many other new hotels in Rak. If you look for luxury you should avoid it. But if you just need a clean place to stay then Rak hotel is a great deal. It has restaurants and room service, a pool and great food. Hair dryer and hoteleries in the bathroom.

Me together with my family (2 kids) stayed in this hotel last weekend. Availed their promo in cobone for 299 aed only with free breakfast and dinner and 2 dreamland tickets (so good to be true). The promo sounds really good and value for money. If you don't have budget and wants to go somewhere over the weekends, then this hotel is good for you.

These are the reasons why we had a terrible stay there:

- the room is very old, very dark, curtain and bedsheets makes the room darker and scary.
- I am not comfortable on the bed and being alone. I feel someone is with us on that room. The ambiance doesn't feel very welcoming.
- toilet is so ordinary, we didn't even take a bath there coz we are not really comfortable.
- bedsheets are smelly, smell like old people. funny but this is really true. i don't think they are using detergent soap??
- We didn't enjoy our free dinner buffet because food are only few mostly Indian food
- swimming pool looks old and small. I don't think it can accommodate all their guests to fit on their pool
- Dreamland promotion - the hotel is very far to dreamland. Location wise, not ideal to stay. 30 minutes ride going to dreamland from the hotel.
- Their waiting are or lobby is a smoking area too. they should have a separate room.
- Wifi in the room is not free
- Service was very slow. 30 minutes before they will give your request.

Good points, staffs are friendly.

I am not here just to say bad things about this hotel. I am writing this so it will give attention to their management on what are the experiences of their guests during their stay. I do believe that this hotel have potential, just need to improve the quality of some areas like the color of their curtains, the lighting so the ambiance will change and guests will feel more relax. It seems that they just had a good edits on their pictures over the net which helps the guests to attract more and try their hotel.

But for me, I'd better pay 700aed to 1,000 aed to a hotel and get a good, comfortable stay which we can relax then paying 299 aed (+100 aed charge for weekends) and always feel disappointment. I am not expecting too much since this is only a 3 star hotel. But the only way that your guests will have a satisfaction is the food and the ambiance of the room.

We actually stayed in this hotel because of the Groupon deal we bought. It's a one night stay with free two admission tickets from Dreamland Aquapark. But spending the weekend in the aquapark is what we really bought. We spent the whole day in Dreamland and check in late night just to consumed our 1 night stay.
We are a big group consist of my husband, my two babies, nanny and group of my friends, total of 12 persons; six (6) rooms booked.
Service was average I must say. Staff are serious, not rude but nor friendly. Lobby smells smoke and cigarettes with a very small and old elevator. Location is far and hard to find; thanks to my GPS. No amenities except to the very old swimming pool.

Buffet dinner and breakfast just ok, nothing special.

Room are small and old. very very dark (dark ambiance, dark curtains and bed sheet etc.) and smell funny. We felt very uncomfortable the moment we step in. Toilet is poor, the tub is small and very old. There a hole in the toilet near the tub so you feel uncomfortable when taking bath.

Overall, this hotel needs renovation big time.
We will not comeback again.
