We've just come back to London from a lovely break at the Al Bandar hotel. Having had lots of recommendations from friends about the resort we had high expectations and although the sunshine, dolphin trip, stunning coast line, food, room, cleanliness & facilities for the kids were all excellent...unfortunately the service and lack of communication really lets the hotel down....

I am not sure what is wrong with Shangri-La hotels located abroad.They are not up to the standards of a luxury hotel! Anyways, it was a very disappointing experience. First, we asked the hotel to give us two connecting or next to each other rooms when we booked. We have three kids of 2, 5 and 7 yo. Each time...

We found our whole experience most enjoyable. We had opted for the adult hotel, Al Husn, and it was coming to the end of their season, so it wasn't at all crowded and there were always sunloungers, parasols, etc. available either on the beach or round the pool. We had an amazing view from our huge room overlooking the beach....
