Take the road whenever you are in Al Ain City. The long snakelike- road is incredible. There are a couple of Views-points at various levels. The best time to drive up the is at sunset - an unbelievable view on a clear day.

if you want to have nice day with family or friends or for couples you most have grill plan to enjoy more activities, the weather on top is much more colder than what we have down... so you should be carful not to visit on winter, best time in a day early morning or late afternoon

Never ever miss going to the top of Jebel Hafeet while visiting Al Ain, UAE. The long winding ( snake- like) road to the top is amazing. The view along the way is something too as you drive close alongside the mountain. There are View- points at different levels. At the top is the very nice Mercure Hotel. The best... More

This is a great place in the mountains, but I don't want kids splashing around in the bar area and taking over the adult pool. There's a kids pool, but not enforced. Also, the hotel could use a bit of updating. Staff is great though; food is good. I'd come back, but maybe during a school day. 😉

Jebel Hafeet should be considered one of the Wonders of the World. The drive to the top offers breathtaking views of Al Ain and Oman. Once at the top, stop by the Mercure Hotel for shisha and coffee and stare out over the vista. Everyone traveling to Abu Dhabi or Dubai should see it.

Driving to Jebel Hafeet is very amazing experience for car enthusiasts. The mountain road is very smooth and good with several twists and turns. The mountain lies both in UAE and Oman. It is one of the best and popular peaks in the region. View points are available on the road with some regular intervals of distance. Jebel Hafeet is... More

It was a romantic drive and view from top was amazing. We went at night and view was mesmerizing, with sutle wind. Been there 2-3 times but every visit is still astonishing.
