I stay for 2 night with my wife and two daughters and 3 more family's.. I booked by phone and the hotel staff give us a very good rate with breakfast and dinner..

My family and other friend arrived a little bit late but the staff just make everything easy for us to check in.

When i get into the room, it was spacious and very clean even though the hotel are quite old. Overall the room and all the facilities in the hotel are superb for a 3 stars hotel.

For the food, we had a buffet dinner and the food was fantastic.

We stayed for 2 nights at the LIWA Hotel, from 1st to 3rd September 2017. We booked 7 rooms since we had 6 families and they were kind enough to accommodate us at a very convenient location and the rooms were provided close to each other. We checked in late (because we traveled from Sharjah) and also got an approval to check out late, which was really a nice gesture.

The rooms are very spacious and clean with AC and hot water facilities. There is a large private balcony area with each room and it's a nice place to have an outdoor chat provided the weather is good.

They have plenty of indoor and outdoor recreation facilities, such as a fully equipped gym (separate for ladies and gents), table tennis, sauna, swimming pool, tennis court, basket ball, football, a walking track etc., Most of these facilities are open from 10 am to 10 pm, but they are flexible on the timings except for the pool facility.

There is a good spread for breakfast and dinner (did not have lunch in the hotel) and could even order your food to the room. If you are intending to buy food from outside, there are no restaurants nearby or anything decent in the city.

The Mureeb Dunes are approximately 45 minutes away from the hotel and the drive is really nice a couple of hours before sun set. During the season, the Mureeb dunes have many activities which can be an eventful experience.

The hotel staff were very friendly and always ready to help with whatever you need.

Room Tip: There are no restaurants close to the hotel if you decide to eat from outside.

Went to Liwa for a quiet weekend to celebrate my birthday. The housekeeping staff on learning it was my birthday decorated the room with balloons and rose petals and room service delivered a beautiful cake complete with candles. We ate our meals in the restaurant and the food was delicious, I enjoyed a rare steak, that was rare and my husband enjoyed the tastiest paella he said he had ever tasted. It was made especially for him from scratch. The cost for meals was a lot less than many restaurants and hotel restaurants we frequent in Abu Dhabi but their flavours were far superior. The pool is large and divided into shallow and deep by floats and there is a kiddies pool for the tots. There is also a fitness centre and spa which we did not get to try this time, saving for next visit. We took a drive around the oasis area saw the tall dunes, learned about a fish farm of all things hidden away in the oasis and saw the many date farms. The whole region has a beauty and grace all its own. The hotel does everything to ensure a pleasant stay for guests, while upholding traditional UAE hospitality.

We enjoyed our Eid Holidays this time at Liwa Hotel. We were a large group and all of them enjoyed it thoroughly. The rooms are huge, very good facilities. We only missed to utilize the massage room facilities.

Good breakfast, excellent dinner, very friendly and helpful staff. The latter helped sort out a reservation too. Special thanks to F&B Manager (Mr. Angelo) for his personal efforts. This made us to have a relaxing and memorable stay. Briefly, we love it and we love to stay again at Liwa Hotel.
