Desert Oasis

Staff performance, Activities, Restraunts
This was an amazing get away. A real oasis in the middle of the desert. Staff was there to happily cater to our every need. The room decor was arabian fort style. Definitely would recommend and we will be coming back soon.

pool the service and the food
We had a fabulous time. It was a bit further out than I thought but the experience of being in an ali baba type desert resort was just what I wanted. The food was fantastic thanks to Pascal, service by the pool with your staff was great. Would definitely come back to stay when next in Dubai

Great stay

Atmosphere, pool, outback location
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.
