    Awesome!

    It was amazing! Five star all round. Perfect for a short relaxing stay! Staff were friendly and couldn’t do enough for us. They met our every need. The only exception was the pool bar staff who didn’t seem to know what they were doing.

    Exceptional Experience

    This was our second stay at Qasr Al Sarab and we upgraded from a garden deluxe to a one bed villa with a pool. Everything in the villa was outstanding, space, facilities, finishings. You will certainly not be disappointed. Due to the heat, the breakfast was delivered to the room and you could order as much as you like, we literally did not leave our villa the whole time we stayed. Anything we required more of was delivered to us very promptly and all staff were super friendly and professional at all times. Olga took special care of us as it was our anniversary and we were repeat customers. Thank you Olga and your team. We look forward to another visit soon. Tayyba and Tariq

  • 8,0.Very good

    Gorgeous place, gorgeous hotel. Management should be on top of few things though. There were some deficiencies in the service that reflects poor oversight: 1. Room was not very clear. Hair on floor and in sink. 2. After the room was serviced; toiletry (shampoo, etc.. ) were not refilled and placed back in an orderly way; they kept them the way we left them. 3. Only one capsule of caffeinated coffee for a room of 2 and one decaf. 4. Toiletry (cream, shampoo etc..) were not of expected quality; the ones used in their gym/spa are much better than the ones in the room. 5. They say they have a soap menu; but we had to order the soap. But otherwise an amazing place; surreal. Should be on every tourist's short list of things to do.

    Stunning Desert Resort

    The resort is just beautiful, almost magical! The staff is extremely attentive and friendly. We went on the sunset camel ride, which turned into a private one with the most knowledgeable guide. We can’t wait to go back!!

    Rude and inconsiderate management.

    The property is beautiful. Communication with Management before and on arrival at the hotel was extremely disappointing. Guest relations manager Edwina was rude and condescending. We booked a suite and were informed before hand that it sleeps 3 adults. There was 1 king bed (for 2 adults) and 1 fold away children's metal spring bed for the 3rd adult. This was unacceptable and management were not willing to change in any way shape or form at the hotel because we had booked through hotel.com and not directly with them. Instead the Manager Raphaelo asked me to check-in to another room for 2 nights at an additional expense. I was not willing to do this as the website states the suite sleeps 3 adults and therefore as the hotel did not have the facilities for this, the management tried to pressure me into paying for another room or sleep on the child's foldable bed which was extremely uncomfortable and painful for the back for 2 nights.
