Would have definitely given this beautiful hotel 5 stars if not for the disappointing arrival. We booked the room for 5 nights through Virgin Holidays and chose a 'deluxe plus' room as we particularly wanted good views and this room was described as 'with panoramic views of the creek'. We specially requested a high floor (not guaranteed) but on arrival were offered only a second floor room (out of 14 floors) and this wouldn't have had the 'panoramic views' described as it was too low down. It also would have been much closer to the main road and noisy. We then had to pay for an upgrade (about £42 a night) for an executive room which was on the llth floor. This huge room was exceptional and beautifully appointed. It had floor to ceiling glass on two sides looking out onto the creek and working dhow harbour. It was spotlessly clean with an enormous and very comfortable bed. Every extra was provided and a free large bottle of mineral water was left every night which was a nice touch. By upgrading we had the use of the executive lounge in which internet was free. Internet access in the room was terribly expensive per day - almost £20 which we regarded as a real rip off. Note that internet access, even in the executive lounge, was very slow. Everyone in the hotel was delightful and couldn't have been more charming or helpful, they really went out of their way. The hotel is very modern and interesting with lots of steel and glass. It is well situated (we didn't want a beach resort) and taxis are cheap. As the hotel isn't too large it was more personal and the staff even remembered your name. The hotel restaurant served very nice quality food and there is a new restaurant in the hotel called 'Table 9 by Nick and Scott' which had very good reviews and was outstanding, well worth trying. We highly recommend this hotel and would certainly stay again. One word of caution DON'T us Golden Sands Travel desk situated in the lobby of the hotel. We wanted to book a tour and were told we could either book it with the concierge or the at Golden Sands. We went to Golden Sands travel desk as the concierge was busy. After making a few telephone calls the man told us that the tour we wanted was fully booked. He then tried to sell us one of his tours which he said was the same (but was nothing like it) We went to the concierge at the front desk who booked the tour we wanted straight away, it clearly was not fully booked!!!
