I stayed in this hotel for one night; It was very clean, but very dated. Tacky cabaret (think Spanish costas of the late 70's). Pool area quite big, but signs with "guests are only allowed 1 towel per day" shows how stuck in the days this place is. The area round the pool is complimented by not-so-attractive fake grass.
The building next door hosts 4 nightclubs, 3 of them Indian, and can only be described as "horrific". Filthy. It caters more for the Indian popluation of RAK who seemed to love it, but as a westerner I found the place very unattractive, and just plain weird..
The hotel is right next door to a mosque and the call to prayer is unbelievably loud. I was woken up twice with it around 5am. Think "very loud" and double it.
The rooms were clean, but again very very dated.
I tried to get a taxi to go to the nearby Rotana for drinks (lovely hotel and not that much more to stay there I later found out), and the reception said they cannot order taxis, you have to hail on the main road. What?!?
Anyway, to sum up, I'd never stay again, but it did make me chuckle and smile that a hotel like this proudly calls itself 4 star!
