The resort itself is stunning and both the villa and the resort have fantastic facilities. A real chilled out place to relax in! Will definitely recommend to everyone and will revisit! I felt like I was in Spain!

                                                                                                      4 of 5
                                                                                                      Studio spacieux plutôt confortable avec une bonne literie. Les fenêtres sont en revanche mal isolées d'autant plus qu'en face des travaux d'un immeuble en construction pouvait parfois être bruyant même à une heure du matin. Les chantiers à Dubaï fonctionnent en effet 24h sur 24. J'ai parfois été également gênée par l'odeur de la peinture faite dans un appartement à côté même le soir très tard. L'accueil à l'hôtel reste très professionnel avec un remerciement particulier à Houda (possédant une certaine maitrise du français ce qui est appréciable). L'hôtel est plutôt bien équipé avec une piscine sur le toit, un petit hammam, sauna et salle de sport ainsi que d'un parking. En matière de restauration, vous avez la possibilité de commander à la carte des plats mais je n'ai pas fait appel à ce service. Le petit déjeuner reste simple. Disposer d'une cuisine reste donc pratique à condition de penser à prévoir une cafetière. Vous pouvez trouver à proximité des petits supermarchés qui pour certains sont ouverts 24h sur 24. En marchant une quinzaine de minutes, vous trouverez des restaurants. L'hôtel est situé à 15-20 mn à pied de 2 stations de métro (Oud Metha et dubai healthcare city). Près de la 1ère station, vous avez plusieurs restaurants et la seconde station se situe près d'un grand centre commercial Wafi Mall. Je recommande cet appart-hôtel qui présente un bon rapport qualité prix.
