Wonderful
Surpassed my expectations, across 750+ hotel nights around the globe (400+ of them within Marriott Group), I have enjoyed one of our best stays ever. Despite it was a one-night stay, celebrating a family occasion, we needed it to be perfect and memorable, and it was, Thanks to the diligence, enthusiasm, and exceptional teamwork of the entire resort team, I witnessed a fantastic team spirit to make us feel comfortable and well cared for, it was exceeding the highest hospitality & quality standards I have experienced before

This is the second time I've stayed here, but before that, I had gone for the day to use the pool a handful of times. This is a great weekend escape from Abu Dhabi, the service and amenities are wonderful, and its proximity to Abu Dhabi is much closer then some of the other resorts way out in the middle of nowhere. I always love my time here.

8/10 Very good

Lovely location, choice of activities from the premises, room very good, pool and surrounding vicinity also very good, reception could be warmer for this quality of hotel. A bit out of the regular tourist route but worth the short drive from Abu Dhabi (45 -50 minutes)
