    Great resort but cleanliness requires attention

    Our room smelt of cigarettes, especially in the toilet. There was a lot of dust in our room and I believe a deep clean of all rooms is required. The Italian Riva restaurant was amazing, the food and service was exceptional. However, the Nahham Arabic restaurant require a lot more outdoor heaters, but the food and service is good.

    Beautiful Getaway

    The hotel is beautiful and the staff are very welcomin and friendly. The activities are all excellent and make for a good overall experience. The breakfast and dinner buffet restaurants are both excellent with fantastic range. The rooms were beautiful, but there was quite a lot of dust on the decor.

    Amazing island, friendly staff and lots to do. Downside, accessible only by boat which takes approx 25 minutes. If you are travelling around Doha city add another 30 minutes for travel meaning it will take atleast 1 hour to arrive back to your room. If you dont get stuck in traffic and miss your boat that is. Oh and a plus note they provide unlimited free laundry for children under 2 years

    Best hotel/spa resort to date!

    My husband and I chose this hotel based on their recent award for best spa hotel in Qatar. We stayed here for one week to celebrate both our birthdays and the entire team went over and beyond to make our birthdays memorable. We selected a premier sea view room which was beautiful and very spacious. Breakfast was amazing and the hotel were able to meet our vegetarian/vegan dietary requirements in every way. Thank you for making our stay so memorable and we definitely will be going back :)

    Amazing experience, loved every minute of the holiday. Only one problem when getting to the reception area and out Aswell there is no one to open the door, and the doors are not automatic so when you have loads of baggage and a baby to carry it is very hard to get through the heavy doors. Other then that the holiday was pretty much how I want it to be.
