Amazing hotel and staff
This was our second visit and we'll be back again for sure. This hotel is slightly further from the corniche but the peace and tranquility you get with it is perfect. The centre hotels we visited when nearby for lunch etc and it was too busy for us with the hustle and bustle you would expect from centre hotel. Fairmont was perfect for us, out of the way but still within driving distance to all the attractions. The staff were amazing and we can't wait to return.
