We just returned from 4 days at the al Waha hotel with our two year old, and could not have asked for anything more!

If your looking for a friendly quiet relaxing holiday then look no further. Our room was simply amazing with direct access to the main swimming pool. We ate at different restaurants every day and all super delicious. Will definitely return and highly recommend.

Sprawling resort - good sized guest rooms albeit in need of a renovation - limited restaurant outlets. Be prepared for long walks wherever you want to go...... Check out heritage village especially if live local music is playing.
