                        This time I was alone and I really enjoyed it. Definitely I will come again but with company to share the ultimate relaxation.

                        The place is very peaceful and quite .. Staff were extremely professional and helpful

                        When we ordered food from in room dining they brought a completely different dish .. Considering the prices the food should also be up to standard

                        7.0

                        Virtually easy check-in and check-out process, done in 5 minutes! This is a wonderful hotel for a relaxing weekend or romantic get away. Couples will enjoy a romantic night swim or option of seeking a romantic little spot (which were many) throughout the resort. The resort has a very peaceful atmosphere for someone who desires to get away from stress for a weekend. The rooms are tastefully decorated in Arabic decor. I was there as part of a birthday celebration. The resort provided a very tasty cake! The staff are very pleasant. We were given a bottle of cold water to go and noticed our car washed of sand. Nice!

                        The food and drinks were very expensive! We only ate the tasty cake and snacks we brought along with us. The bathroom could have been cleaner. The tub was dirty. Room service was slow. We had to call them 3 times for same service. The beds were mediocre comfort. The mattress was typical as well as pillows.

                        A Luxury stay in the mid desert, very relaxing , an excellent welcoming staff especially AlFursan Restaurant.Amazing decor and ambience The small details in the room itself, the antique touch in the doors, windows, curtians, even mini bar without fridge looks more natural , all simple with amazing touch , even the ligth switch , the traditional soap in the bathroom, all these details remind with my village in Syria, the air condition hole looks natural and cooling with complete silence as if the room not provided with a cnetral a/c system, amazing work. Also we should never forget swimming in the big pool with your family and you are almost touching the desert by hand with perfect cleaniness. The whole design of the Resort is amazing.a great job.

                        Too far from Dubai and no sorounding activities since you are 40 km in the desert,especially for my 3 kids.

                        It was hard to found location of hotel , I think hotels staff needs to give much more clear info about location of the hotel or at least in his website make a little more clear to be easy for his guest to find location of the hotel .thanx

                        Excellent service and friendly, courteous staff.

                        Expensive, considering we booked during an off-peak period.

                        From the time we checked in till the time we left it was fantastic. Staff were really friendly and helpful. You feel like you are really in the desert away from all the hussle and bussle of the city even though you aren't really that far from it. It was peaceful and the setting is really beautiful.
