Booked there on a business trip. Great room, on the top floor. Very good breakfast and lunch area. Restaurants for evening occasions were very good. Understated bar area, which was just right.

View across the creek, towards the mosque was ever-changing, thanks to the light.

Stayed: December 2012

I love the shower in the rooms - lots if space and ease of entry. The international cuisine restaurant is very inviting. The staff from front to banquet are all professional and accomplished. I met the GM and no wonder it works so well - he is a born leader and focused on quality standards.

My partner can not say how much we enjoyed our 6 night stay at this fabulous hotel. We arrived at 10am after a overnight flight from England.We were allowed to check in straight away. The staff were all happy to serve and talk to the both of us. Nothing seemed too much for the hotel staff to do.
The room was superb(124) the food was very enjoyable,the beach staff brilliant,It was our best holiday of our lives, We can not thank the hotel and all the staff for making our all to short holiday(6 nights) truely memorable. Thank you to all the staff.

We stayed here for 3 nights during Xmas & even had the cuisine monumental brunch. Room was great (view of mosque), brunch was superb though dessert could've been better (compared to the other courses on offer). Staff were ever so polite. It's also relatively new compared to the hotels in the city so the facilities are very good. We loved the pool and the little 'beach'. It's about 20-25 mins away from the city but worth the distance. We had a great time and being away from the noisy city only added to the feeling of being away from it all.

Room Tip: View of mosque

Very nice hotel, elegant, luxurious. Room overlooking the water are breath taking. Definitely a recommended property to stay in. Their pool is nice and it is a great place for the families as well. The sun down from the room is breathtaking. I would strongly recommend it.

Room Tip: Facing the water is the best room. No need to upgrade to the premium room , they are just the same with more sapce
