    Very good

    The setting is amazing with sand dunes all round. The evening lighting highlighted the great location. The hotel has been built with a traditional touch and is different from most UAE hotels for charm. The food was very well prepared, however you pay a fairly high price for this. The fresh fruit at breakfast was very good with lots of choice. A nice hotel for a 1 or 2 night break away from the usual beach and city hotels. You are transported around the site on golf buggies which were great and very quick. Lovely pool area and helpful friendly staff.

    Check in took quite a long time. The room was well equipt with a huge bath but lacked the little extras you might expect from a hotel of this standard and price.

    it was great very relaxing and felt like we travelled outside abu dhabi the service was good and quick.

    i was disappointed that the web site said that there is an i pod dock in all rooms but there wasn't. they promised to delete this info from web site.

    Very beautiful location with the orange sanddunes and very quiet room. The service and meals around the pool were excellent.

    I like the room with its own terrace, as it gives us privacy and romantic setting. The area outside is amazing with the wonderful view of the desert. I enjoyed my staying but i think it will be more beautiful stay if it is during winter time. The location is very very far from the capital Abu Dhabi, but i think within few months, this area will be crowded with cities and other facilities.

    only the location is very far.. but the idea of building a such hotel is the desert is a genous.

    Fabulous

    We stayed for 3 nights at the Qasr al Sarab in a suite. The scenery was wonderfull. A truly unforgettable experience.The best activity was the walk/ trekking with a guide in the dunes by sunset. The colors were amazing. The camel riding was a bit disappointing. I would have liked to start the ride directly in the dunes, instead of spending time on the flat/ hard ground. Archery was great fun. I would suggest the hotel to start organising horse riding. there would surely be a great demand for this.

    On the - side, we ordered a cot bed for a 4-month toddler which never came (although ordered on booking 2 or 3 weeks before). Also, something on which the hotel has no control, but when the wind is blowing, the dust is unbearable. Just be warned. The path layout is a bit complex as well. The architects should have thought about parents with a pram/ push chair. Overall a great stay, despite a few teething problems with the staff. Some staff really great and professionals, some others clearly unexperienced.

    Fabulous

    Completely peaceful. A perfect retreat out of city life. Surrounded by clean untouched desert with the most beautiful sunsets. Staff were fantastic and friendly

    I found there were quite a lot of pigeons, and therefore quite a lot of bird feaces. I suggested that they get some falcons to fly around and limit the amount of pigeons in the area

    The service & the location. A breathtaking experience.

    The food wasn't that good & way overpriced. The temperature of the villa private pool was too cold, and could use more privacy.

    Superb

    The dunes the hotel is set in are beautiful, certainly a very different experiences for many.

    1) For a longer stay one has to be aware there is not much to do in the area. 2) the main pool might be quite crowded on fully booked winter days.

    No exaggeration, it was like setting foot in how I would imagine paradise.

    The breakfast buffet was not comparable in standards to the dinner buffet.

    The resort is amazing, the staff are fantastic, their customer service was first class, very friendly and attentive. Great for a relaxing weekend away. The rooms are lovely, and the bed - wow, so comfortable, a home from home! Would definitlwy want to re-visit.

    Wider range of activities would be good, especially if you plan on staying more than 2/3 nights. However, a major dissapoint after a fabulous weekend was the valet service, as I was checking out, my husband went outside to sort out the car and luggage, only to find the car (which is his pride and joy) had been parked by the valet with the exhausts resting on a ledge and the back wheels off the ground, and the front underside panel of the car falling off!! We were not impressed, the valets clearly do not understand that a sparts car is much lower than a 4x4!! All we got was a mumbled apology and the cheek to say it wasnt their fault!? My husband spoke to the gm the next day, who claimed an investigation had been conducted and cctv checked and there was no evidence to say it was the fault of the valet - even though we saw it with our own eyes!? We were also supposed to be sent a copy of this report, it is now nealry 1 week later and we still have not recived anything or any communication. After such an amazing weekend at a wonderful resort this was a truly dissapointing ending.

    i really love architecture and decoration

    i think there was not enough activities such as sport or leisure, and the ones proposed were too expensive and not worth it ( i did camel pictures and camel riding, very poor !!!)
