    the staff were very friendly and accomodating, but since first time we came there, we almost lost coz there is no light in signboard of hotel in main entrance.the hotel little old specially bathroom but hotel location was marvelous coz near to nature .

    th bathroom where we stay little old.

    the place is nice, the staff friendly, the snorkeling condition excellent

    The pool is to small and dirty

  • Older travelers

    we booked a deluxe double room,which was large but plain,good sized fridge,lovely terrace and great view of Snoopy rock,direct access onto the beach.Good snorkelling.Bar and restaurants laid back,not the Dubai tacky OTT 5 star that we dislike.Having read previous variable reviews about we were undecided about booking but happy we did.We were in block C

    Building noise at seafood restaurant which we wernt warned about prior.No breakfast included so a bit overpriced,probably they can get away with it as I personally feel the location beats all the other hotels on this coast.Very quiet on weekdays but going out of season now.Decor in room odd.No tea and coffee included in room.

  • Older travelers

    Relaxing and close to the beach. Staff were very friendly. I liked the barbecue idea.

    Quests stealing coral. There will be even fewer fish to see if this continues.

  • Couple
    6.6

    Nice to get out of Dubai for a weekend break. Very relaxing feeling at the hotel and laid back people. The hotel fish restaurant was very good.The dive club is fine but the dives are not super interesting. We enjoyed norkeling around snoopy island.

    The hotel needs a renovation.

    Room close to the beach. Walk off the balcony straight onto the beach.

  • Group of friends
    6.6

    The veiw is stunning and the room system is very gd , but chose either delux rooms or chaleh . I stayed in the cheapest room :) since I only cared about diving .

    The food quality is bad , and water pressure to the bathroom in fair

  • Older travelers

    The quite ... i like it very much.

    1- the price should be less cause there is a lot of hotels in this area. 2- check in time should change. 3- more training for the stuff specially the receptionists

  • Family with children
    6.6

    I like the resort location, atmosphere, food (although of few variety)

    The hotel is lacking fitness center.

  • Family with children
    7.8

    Great place for the family to relax a weekend. Nice beach with lots of fish to watch around Snoopy Island just opposite the beach. We will come back!

  • Group of friends
    7.8

    It has a nice homely/family environment. Nothing extravagant and well priced. The staff are also friendly and helpful

  • Couple
    8.2

    It was very down to earth, rooms were a bit shabby but clean and totally functional. The breakfast was very good. Beach was clean and small, never crowded! And the snorkeling was the best part - the Snoopy Rock is just a few minute swim off the beach. You can rent all the snorkel equipment right there.

    Maybe the rates are a bit high for the condition of the rooms. We saw similar rates to what we paid at some of the five star properties nearby.

  • Family with children
    7.8

    The beach and the gardens are excellent.

    Installations a bit old, and food not so great.

  • Group of friends
    6.2

    nice access to beach and good for snorkling

    Rooms are spacious but standard

  • Older travelers
    5.0

    Ideal to get away from the usual crowded and overequipped resorts. Basic and straight forward bed, beach & sea arrangement. Perfect to just relax !

    Food options are basic and likewise overpriced, breakfast buffet choice is poor.
