We stayed here for 7 nights in November 2015. This was the most beautiful hotel in every way. The rooms, decor, food, cleanliness, staff were second to none and cannot be faulted. Would definitely stay here again. If you want a 5* hotel with all the luxuries, this is it.

Staid overnight as friends where visiting and like how quite the hotel was. No q at breakfast and the beach all for us! They have a few dining options but the best was Marco's, but make sure to have some money budgeted for that. Nice wine list and cigar lounge just next door.

Perfectly located between city and airport. Awesome morning sunshine breakfast with the view of Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, one of the architectural elegance. Quiet and scenic. Excellent time to stay is between November & March.

Stayed there for 3 nights and apart from the pickup from the airport, all was excellent. Superb staff throughout, all of whom were very professional and attentive. I would recommend this for somewhere to stay when in AD
