Pre arrival communication was excellent! The location was great for us. We were able to get to all attractions very easily. Everything was spotlessly clean and housekeeping was fabulous everyday! We had 2 junior suites and they were HUGE! The views were stunning and the rooms were very quiet and well appointed. My boys thought this was the best hotel they have ever stayed in. Plenty of room for luggage and the bathrooms were fantastic! Front desk staff and bell staff were great! The breakfast was excellent and the staff was wonderful. The pool area was beautiful and we had a lovely lunch out there one day. We used one of the hotel cars and drivers 2 days in a row and cannot recommend this service enough. Our driver was incredible and we saw so much more of the city with him than we would have on our own. We absolutely recommend staying here!

Nobu and Anjana from reception tried their best to make my stay very comfortable and like home. |The rest of the team in the Bull & Bear restaurant also great and very friendly specially Siham.
