We thought we would escape for a weekend away for some birthday celebrations and decided we would give Al Nahda a try. After looking at the website and the comments on trip advisor I thought it would be a nice family break. We spent two nights in a "Royal Villa" to accommodate our family of six. The villa was far...

This was my third stay at Al Nahda. First stay was super. Second time, the service was minimal, rooms and bathrooms were not maintained well, landscapes remained unattended. This time everything has changed. Service, rooms and landscape were improved very well. But bicycles are still the old ones (I guess) which needs to be replaced. Food, especially dinner was extremely...

Just dropped in there for a Spa and its was amazing. Refreshing and soothing in this summer heat. Beautiful pool with a pool side bar to chill. Situated a bit inside the city but not difficult to find out.

It's rather difficult to find your way to the hotel, but that's partely due to the road works in Barka. Enormous terrain with a fantastic pool and a modern gym! Rooms are big enough but aren't in top shape. But apart from details, this hotel is a nice place to stay!
