Lovely hotel with wonderfully welcoming and friendly staff, a beautiful pool and amazing food...especially the curry! Great park area for kids to play. Only one hour drive from Dubai and a very convenient location for Dreamland AquaPark. We had a lovely room overlooking the pool and beach with a fantastic view of the sunset!

While some guests came from Germany, I opted to stay in this hotel. The hotel is not far from Dubai so it was easy to commute with family. I had heard about this hotel with good words and experienced the same during my stay. The service was good
