Great facilities-pool,sauna and gym. Very friendly and professional staff. There are about ten themed restaurants in the hotel and several bars. We liked The Typhoon Bar serving Cocktails near the Pool. The Sherlock Holmes Bar is a themed English bar which also served great food. All in all a sumptuous experience!

What a wonderful hotel! I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here. The rooms are big, clean, and quite comfortable. The service from every staff member was superb. The buffet in the Al Waha restaurant in the lobby is incredible. The quality of food is far better than I would expect from a hotel buffet. I will certainly be back the next...

I suggest the staying in this hotel: it is really beautiful, elegant with a magnificent entry. Well furnished and accessorized rooms. Unfortunately I cannot give comments about dining/breakfast because of my very short stay. Next time I will.

We stayed here in March 2017 for a friend's 40th birthday celebration. We found the staff to be very friendly, very easy check-in where we were upgraded to a luxury room. Free WiFi. Breakfast was really good, with lots of choice. The one downside was that the breakfast buffet area was far too cold to be comfortable. I had a...
