We stayed at the Doubletree for just one night; the hotel opened in 2011, and so everything was very clean. While the interior is nice, the surroundings are a bit drab, with the hotel right in the middle of a sandy area without any surrounding landscaping. However the RAK Exhibition centre is 500 yards away so it would be a good location for anyone attending any event there.
The rooms are very elegantly furnished, and you had that "new furniture smell" . One complaint we had was that we did not find toothbrushes/pastes, and even after telling the reception, they did not send it to us after saying they would do so.
Breakfast was the usual hotel stuff, although i felt it was oriented towards the continental (particularly Russian) palate.
Guests here can use the Hilton Resort's beach, however it proved a bit inconvenient as you had to walk through the reception there and through a restaurant to access the beach.
And now the best part of our stay; the cookies! This was the first time i tasted a Doubletree Cookie and it was possibly one of the best cookies i have ever had.More
