It was a great weekend stay to relax. The rooms are well designed. The staff was really helpful and friendly. The food was also good especially the breakfast. I can really recommend this hotel. But be aware that it is far out of the city and there is nothing around the hotel except sand.

an ok stay. not up to our expectation

We arrived on a Friday, not sure if that's the reason, the staff at the lobby were not attentive at all. First, the reception staff who assisted us was impatient and a bit rude. We didn't know that the hotel accepts only passport or Emirates ID for check in. It was not stated in the confirmation letter from agoda and we only had the foreign ID with us which was refused by the hotel. I wish when I booked with agoda I was informed of this, as it was a hassle driving back to get our passports. Secondly, we booked a superior king room, but was given a room with 2 twin beds combined. And the staff didn't even bother to ask if we were ok with that. We only found out when we were in the room but by then we were just too tired and too disappointed to call the front desk again. First impression was totally ruined. Thankfully other than that, all other staff are nice. Especially the awesome guys working at the pool, and the valet. Our car was cleaned when we picked it up. It was a pleasant surprise. We have nothing to say about the room and the facilities, everything was what we have expected but not wow. We were just really disappointed by the attitude of the front desk, because for a 5 star hotel, it was not acceptable.

Beautiful and unforgettable experience

The pool, the lounging area, the bed

I stayed at Bab Al Shams alone, which was a great experience to relax away from the city and life's concerns. If you are taking a taxi, I learnt from the staff that the best places to take a taxi to and from is from Internet City Station or Mall of the Emerates. The resort has wonderful places to relax: the gigantic pool, the lounging areas, the beautifully decorated rooms and large bath, or on top of the building to watch sunset on the desert sand.
