I only stayed here for one night but loved the hotel and it's lovely Moorish-Moroccan style and attentive service. My room faced the beach/pool/mosque so it was perfect for my visit as my purpose was to visit the Grand Mosque and just have a change from Dubai. The room was luxurious with a wonderful balcony to sit on(well after dark in June) with all the touches a super lux hotel should have though I think they could have done better than L'Occitane toiletries but that's my only real complaint and it's just a personal preference. I had the int'l buffet lunch and also breakfast in their main restaurant and room service for dinner. Service was excellent in all areas, inc. check in and out. The hotel reminds me of the Shangri-la in Muscat that I visited in 2010 in it's style and the feeling of being in such lux surroundings that you never want to leave. They offer a shuttle to the Grand Mosque, which is well worth visiting, and you can just catch a taxi when you want to return. I did use the beach area briefly too after my evening mosque tour, and they immediately set up a chair for me and brought over a cold bottle of water. I took a look at the spa but didn't have time for a treatment but it looked wonderful. They also have their own souk attached to the hotel. I can highly recommend this hotel, just wish I could have stayed longer.
