The best place to enjoy the holiday
Reviewed 6 days ago

So stunning and beautiful place to have memorable moments. From the very beginning we were welcomed by kind and very friendly FO staff of the hotel. Check in was fast and they upgraded our room. We were really satisfied.Room is really nice allocated and the most wonderful view to the Grand Zayed Mosque. There are several pools and nice beach area. We enjoy the sunny day and on the evening had a very tasty dinner in the main restaurant. We were welcomed my Executive Chef Kenan. Really want to let know that he is so attentive to the guests and very professional! He is the real treasure for the hotel. There is a big variety of different dishes. All of them are so delicious and really good quality! We will come again there for sure especially for Kenan and his kind care of the guests.
We advise to visit the hotel and had a very delicious dinner.
Our best wishes to the hotel and looking forward to come back in a very short time ...

Fabulous stay .... Again

Our second stay in 5 months and this one as good, possibly even better - if that's possible, than the last. Can't wait for the next one because we will be back soon. Everyone here is so helpful and courteous and friendly and the property delivers everything to a very high degree of quality. The pool guys, the wonderful pool bar staff and especially the Horizon floor team. Prescilla Jane and Deirdre wonderful hosts. We just can't say enough about this hotel.

Best when it comes to Quality, Price and Service

The hotel might not be the newest but the Service is outstanding and you get a lot for your money. You have a great choice of restaurants and recration facilities within the hotel. As well as a nice Souk with several restaurants, coffee shops and a small supermarket in walking distance. Try to use the healthclub or Spa as both of them are to reccomend.

Pool day pass

We had a wonderful time.

Thank you especially to Oliver who helped us immensely when we had troubles using our online pass. The pool and view are quite something.

The poolside menu is perfect as were the iced coffees!

Thanks again.
