If anything this place is quiet, other than alcohol shoppers and waterpark goers there is nothing else in the area even the road outside isn't that busy. If anyone wants to have a shock they should open this location on google maps satellite and check the area.

It was a 2 day trip with family. A good place to relax, play and enjoy the sea breeze. The rooms were big and could accommodate 7-8 people. We had booked the rooms (the cabanas were not available due to the holiday season).

The place is good for weekend as the entire property is filled with families.. Great location on the beach- but the beach is not good as it is rough and not advisable to use it. the property is nicely spreaded with cottages - two bedroom and studio- the rooms are spacious and the service is outstanding. infact you have 24hrs...

Barracuda Beach Resort is my favourite getaway from the city. It is a 90 minute drive from the city. The beach is not very lively and never crowded. Though it is a very exotic place for a romantic evening with your special one. If you are looking for total privacy, you have it right here! The hotel has an activity... More

Its a pretty average place to stay.. an hour away from Dubai, though on the beach, very average food, rooms are very average, guess thats why it is priced accordingly, no housekeeping stuff such as towles, toileteries etc was provided.
