Cons: Far too expensive for what it was. Need to work on some of the meals, especially breakfast. If they charge as much as they do , then they really need to be using produce of the equivalent standard in their meals.
Pros: Great location, nice events (e.g. sunset on top of the dunes, barbecue), friendly staff
Cons: Value for money was not fully satisfying though. Price was extremely high - even when compared to other luxury resorts. For a 5* resort, even in the desert, hygiene level should be higher (e.g. bathroom, particularly toilet was not cleaned at arrival, and this did not improve for the second night). Would recommend this hotel for a one-night-stay to get the "desert experience" but not for a longer stay.
