Been there for a celebration. Buffet a bit disappointing (usual buffet stuff, dessert were very untasteful) but overall was nice. Environment and atmosphere were good and relaxing, staff friendly. Looks like a countryside (horses and greenery) which is pleasant for a resort in UAE where usually all is about desert and luxury.
