                      Lovely villa, great location

                      5 of 5
                      We stayed at this villa for two nights and loved it. The villa was well equipped with everything you needed. Added bonus was the private pool and bbq. Great view of the lagoon and close to hotel's main pool and pool bar. DVD player in every room with a good collection of DVDs. beds were comfy and rooms were spacious. Very helpful staff who came to greet us. Would recommend and will definitely stay again. Thank you!!

                      A Fantastic Holiday

                      5 of 5
                      This is the second time that my friends and I have visited RAK and spent time in this wonderful apartment . And I have just booked to go back in June. The complex is secure and safe with all the amenities you would need nearby, the adjacent marina is a great place to go both during the day and for a lovely dinner in the evening. The staff in both the complex and marina are helpful friendly and welcoming. The apartment itself is perfect, beautifully decorated, very well appointed with everything you need and the balcony especially in the evening is a joy, watching the sunset over the sea with a G&T in hand - what could be better. Mark and Carmel have left lots of information in the apartment which is really helpful and the process of receiving and returning keys is simple and efficient. Overall a fantastic place with wonderful accommodation and great amenities. That's why I am going back 🤗

                      Excellent

                      5 of 5
                      Really glad we used this town house. Everything advertised was available, the house was very clean and had all we needed. The pool which was just outside was heaven for my two kids who enjoyed it very much. Communication with the owner and appointed care taker was excellent. Directions and instruction was also very good. The close proximity to the shops and mall we found very useful, just a short walk from the town house. When I compare staying in a hotel room with having a whole house to yourself, its a no brainier. I would most definitely recommend this town house and really cannot wait to have to change to use it again. As the Germans would say "Ausgezeichnet"
