We stayed there 3 days/2 nights. We arrived late in the night. The crew was very helpful and professional. The room was clean, well equipped. The room is dark a little, but it didn't disturbe us. The bathtub is huge, it's very good to have bath in. The size of the room is big enough, we liked this arabic style of the hotel. The hotel is like a labyrinth, for the first time it wasn't easy to get back to the room, but we enjoyed it because we can discover the whole hotel. There are a big choice of delicious food. The pool area is also very nice, but the temperature one of the swimming pools was cold for me. There are a lof of birds, but they also didn't disturbe us. It's very good to have a walk around the hotel in the desert. It was a good experience for us to meet the hungarian crew, it was a big suprise. We recommend this hotel. A big suprise for me was that we left the hotel on my birthday. On our last night (the day before my birthday) when we arrived back from dinner I found a little cake in the room with happy birthday sign. It was a really big suprise and it really touched me because it was the first hotel where they think of me because of my birthday.
Room was comfortable with necessary amenities. Spa facilities were closed, but arranged a room massage. Provided a treat for my wife's birthday.
The food at Al Forsan restaurant wasn't great (pizza base was hard, like it was frozen, breakfast pancakes were cold). The pool, spa and Hadheerah restaurant were closed (due to Covid, not their fault), but no proper compensation. Offered an upgrade however the room wasn't as good as what we actually booked.
Pool and Alhadherah
the pool and design of the room
everything else: mediocre quality of staff, food was not creative and tasty and far too expensive. no interesting things to do
I like everything about the hotel specially the friendly and very helpful staff, everything was great, the pool, the room, the spa and activities for kids, I think it is a very good place to relax for honeymooners and a very nice place to be with kids. It was just great.
When you stay at Bab Al Shams Desert Resort and Spa in Dubai, you'll be in the historical district and 8 minutes by car from Dubai International Endurance City. Featured amenities include a business center, limo/town car service, and complimentary newspapers in the lobby. A roundtrip airport shuttle is provided for a surcharge (available on request), and free valet parking is available onsite.
