    Exceptional 10.0
    luxurious stay
    The place is luxurious, relaxing and comfortable. The hotel bus takes you to the grand mall and to the corniche/muttrah souk. you need to book it in advance. The bedroom was huge with a balcony. The pillows and mattress was comfortable and there was a separate bath and walk in shower. There were 2 huge swimming pools, and loads of sun beds scattered all around. You can walk around the beach from one end to the other in about 15 minutes. There are no shops or restaurants outside the premises for miles.

    Fair 4.0
    Lovely location but seriously under quality for the price. With issues from check in to check out (who likes a fight to get your money back when leaving as 2 of our party had) we will not return.

    Stunning scenic hotel!
    Great family hotel with lots to do. Service and comfort was excellent as expected. Scenic location is brilliant. Only downside is the food is very expensive, especially the evening buffet!

    Very good 8.0
    Amazing and relaxing resort
    This is an amazing resort for a relaxing family holiday. Excellent pools, beaches, splash pod, lazy river and activities centre. The breakfast was also very good. However if you are allergic to wasps/ bees, make sure you carry your epi-pen with you as there are quite a few wasps/ hornets in the grounds of the resort.
