Positives: The rooms are lovely and are more of a 5 star standard as opposed to 4. Check-in/out process was quick and efficient.
Negatives: We went hoping for a romantic getaway but that wasn't really the case - there were screaming children everywhere! We were woken up at 7.30am because of noisy children in the corridor. We could also clearly hear the children playing in the room next door.
My main issue however was with the food quality. There is one buffet restaurant and one bar/lounge but the food quality in general was pretty appalling. Food on the buffet was cold and tasteless, and the range offered was not very extensive.
They also seem to have a problem with flies - I don't know how they get in as no doors are left open but they really make eating quite uncomfortable.
I probably would not return - there are many other more outstanding resorts in the UAE to visit.
