“Tarry beach resort”
Reviewed 6 May 2012

We had the most awful time at this place. We stayed at a 2 bedroom apartment that was horrid. The bathrooms smelled of sewage and were dirty, some of the bathroom shelves were stuck together with cellotape. When I saw the beach in the morning I decided to forget about the shoddy accommodation and enjoy the wonderful outdoors... only to end up covered in tar!! The whole beach is full of oil and rubbish!! We were meant to stay for 2 nights but ended up leaving as soon as possible. Our feet were black for days and I am just glad my baby did not swallow any of that stuff when we were in the water. The buffet breakfast and lunch is below average and the coffee comes from a coffee machine. Never again!!

AVOID, AVOID!!

Our room air conditioner did not work in our chalet which they charged 850aed a night for. The beach water was full of rubbish and oil, we could not swim. The staff responded with," no refund as we did not make you swim or put the rubbish or oil there". The food was uninspiring, facilities like the toilets unclean and overall a terrible hotel, and to think they call themselves a resort, I have stayed in better backpacker hostels. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone

After reading some of the earlier reviews, I was a little concerned about staying here - and was very pleasantly surprised. Agreed the self catering chalets are a little small for a family - but then again one goes to a beach side resort to be on the beach and in the water and not spend the day locked up in a hotel room! well maintained property, very helpful staff, well trained dive teams. Lifeguards could be a little more attentive. the Restaurants are nothing close to the competition in the area, so self catering is the best option. Room Services will deliver plates, cutlery, salt pepper etc on request and take it all away when asked to, so that's a bonus.
The Beach is brilliant, lots of well looked after kids play equipment, smooth sea surface so beginner snorkelers wont have any trouble.
One word of warning, the resort is over run by Russian tour groups from 11am to 4pm all wanting to pose and take photos everywhere.
We will be back - without a doubt

Room Tip: Go Self Catering - and request rooms away from Staff quarters

The place has; a diving center with cheap rental gear, canoe/kayak rentals, restaurant, swimming pool. While snorkeling we could see nice corals, small sharks, colorful fish and turtles.
Staff is polite and helpful.

Reception staff are friendly and efficient- check-in is fast in comparison to some 5-star hotels we've stayed at.
We stayed in a hotel room which was clean and spacious and had all we needed. Decor is a bit dated but that's not our top priorirty. Chalet's are small and cramped with very small bathrooms, and self catering chalets need better kitchen facilities. The gardens, beach and pool were lovely and not too crowded. Its great for families as play equipment is available for chilren. Breakfast buffet was a bit limited in variety but quality is acceptable and staff should offer tea/coffee/juice when showing you to your table.
Resort is good for an inexpensive quick break. I will return in the future.

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms are better especially when travelling with chilren
