good facilities, good food, Room is a bit underlit at night. You have to keep the window curtains drawn to get more light in the room. else all was well in order. Room service does take some time, however its well met. a good stopover hotel.

A very spacious hotel with friendly personnel. The breakfast is good, a lot to choose from. The rooms are large and clean. The bed is a bit hard, but that's a personal opinion. I would recommend this hotel!

Good Hotel. I stayed at this hotel with my family for 6 days, the stay was good except few, like Long lines for buffet and little too noisy by our room. But overall its good for the value for your money. Staff was friendly.

The hotel is great for a solo of family setting. The service gives value for your money, the staff are quite assisting and check on you every now and then. The facilities are homely and warm. I have been to 3 Rotana hotels and they never disappoint. My number one choice in UAE.
