“Decent Place”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2014 via mobile

It is a decent place for a weekend get away. Staff are really cooperative and helpful. If you are traveling in a group of families or friends this is a perfect place and there are no restrictions to barbecue. This place is very close to dreamland aqua park.
We stayed in a deluxe studio room and these are very ordinary and not that well maintained. Rooms need a lot of housekeeping.
You must visit their huge liquor shop which is specially known for their collection of wines.

Stayed January 2014, traveled as a couple

Checked in on 31st Dec'13 to celebrate New Year, away from the hustle and bustle of Dubai. Excellent place. We booked 2 two bedroom Chalets with two toilet/bathrooms in each. Had a problem with the toilet flush in both rooms, but managed with one bathroom per chalet. Overall a nice clean place. Needs a little silicone change around the bathtubs and sinks. Little overpriced but then it's New Year and everyone overcharges. Friendly and helpful staff. Great for weekends.

Room Tip: Ground level two bedroom chalets

Excellent arrangement for a nice night out with friends and families. Good for weekends and short stays. Nothing to do - expect a nice BBQ, Chill & sleep. Pool is there but but temp controlled!

Drinks are arms away - Enjoy in your way!

Room Tip: Cabana rooms are Good - BBQ can be arranged. Others are also Good!

The resort is set in a good location. Nice scenery and quiet place. Pool is ok.
We stayed in a 1 bedroom cottage. The cottages are of 3 star quality only. Spacious but not well furnished. Pantry/ kitchenette was there but there were no utensils and fridge was empty.
Get your own towels as the ones provided were not clean.
Booze lovers will enjoy the booze supermarket, Its huge,well stocked and cheaper than outside or duty-free.
The weather was pleasant and cool.
We enjoyed as we went as a big group and had some barbecue and games.

Room Tip: Choose cottages facing the sea or pool

Away from the hustle and bustle of Dubai city this was the perfect place to spend the weekend. Sudden rains and thunders at night dropped the temperatures and became very pleasant in morning.The rooms were quite spacious,clean and comfortable. However the interiors were very ordinary and looked quite old. There was no wi-fi but internet cable was provided which would not be of use for Apple MacAir. The view was good and service was very prompt. Staff was friendly and helpful. It is good place for groups to stay together on weekends for fun and frolic. Cheap liquor attracts huge number of people in bar but doesn't bother people who stay. There are individual chalets with own private gardens ideal for Bonfire and BBQ's.
