My family and I stayed for two nights at the khalidiya palace rayhaan by rotana - as soon as we arrived the service from guest service but also the rest of the staff was perfect. We were given a room with a balcony overlooking the presidential palace, the rooms are spacious and very clean. We appreciated the huge pool and private beach which enabled us to enjoy the facilities that were not crowded and were calm. Staff was very attentive to details, giving us water since it was hot and complimentary treats during the afternoon. Finally, the hotel is safe regarding covid-19 - everything is sanitized and everybody respects wearing of masks, hand gel … Special thanks to the general manager who has been more thank kind to us as he helped with our Covid 19 green pass registration and went the extra mile by resolving a slight issue we had with TV Great location, service, food and room Many thanks

Had a very relaxing and enjoyable stay. The rooms were fine, albeit a little old fashioned. Service and customer attentiveness was first class! Aseel, who oversaw the pool area introduced himself and greeted us everyday by name. Michael at the front desk was also extremely helpful and friendly. Pool does get noisier in the late afternoons as children of local members arrive. But, overall, enjoyed our stay very much.
