Recent guest reviews

We enjoyed our Eid Holidays this time at Liwa Hotel. We were a large group and all of them enjoyed it thoroughly. The rooms are huge, very good facilities. We only missed to utilize the massage room facilities. Good breakfast, excellent dinner, very friendly and helpful staff. The latter helped sort out a reservation too. Special thanks to F&B Manager (Mr. Angelo) for his personal efforts. This made us to have a relaxing and memorable stay. Briefly, we love it and we love to stay again at Liwa Hotel.

I have visited the Liwa Hotel now four times since relocating to the UAE, and it is undoubtedly my favorite location and resort. This resort in the desert with fantastic scenery is a gem. It is priced nicely, very comfortable and clean, staff are professional and friendly, always helpful, and the amenities are excellent. The atmosphere and pool area are relaxing and the facilities for entertainment and sport are just what one needs to create a sense of relaxation and renewal. I really enjoy this hotel and location and will make it my home away from home! The food in the restaurant is excellent and the service is top notch! These people are here to serve and support their customers. Thank you to the Liwa Hotel and staff for giving me a great place to call home. Oh yes, and a visit to the local sites and dunes, to the souks and to the Liwa Date Factory is unforgettable.

Stayed at hotel on 7th April 2017 with family. Property is located on top of hill / plateau. Well directed along the route, smooth check in, served with welcome drink but was disappointed as adjacent rooms were not made available inspite of reserving in advance. Pools were well attended but was not clean (sand on pool floor). Minor maintenance works were being carried out along walk way. Food selection was limited for vegetarians, but the manager took personal attention by serving off menu options like samosa, spring roll, dal fry...😊 The property (being on top of hill) does not have desert view as there are bushes, trees, debris around the periphery. The fountain water is not maintained, you could see foam in water trough. Play area is rusted & not maintained. Little maintenance & minor changes can change things around.

Liwa Hotel is located on a high hill amid the picturesque dunes of Liwa desert. Although this property is pretty aged, its appearance is generally good. The lobby and breakfast restaurant on the ground floor are spacious and well-kept. The rooms are large and so are the balconies. Some renovation works are required though: shower head in our bathroom kept falling down due to improper fixtures, some electrical sockets did not work, etc. The breakfast was very good, especially beef sausages and bacon, and dishes made of beans. Al Fresco seating is also available which is nice indeed. The hotel’s swimming pool was under partial renovation during our stay. There are some birds available on hotel grounds, like albino peacock and geese. One can also walk straight to those wonderful Liwa dunes from the back of the hotel. Plenty of parking is available near the entrance.

The hotel staff were lovely and helpful, food and drinks were reasonable price. The hotel was a little run down, but clean. We went to see the beautiful sand dunes of Tal Mor'eb and they didn't disappoint.

We wanted to book hotel as close to empty quarter as possible and Liwa hotel proved to be a good choice as the largest sand desert in the world begins just after the hotel. Hotels on a hilltop of its own. The hotel property is little dated however well maintained, room was especially clean and spacious with every little facility built-in. The staff are exceptionally well trained and well behaved. Restaurant server Vijith took exceptionally good care of us. Restaurant offers good food and drink options. Many recreational options however little pricey for buggy/quad bikes.

visited this hotel few times. Rooms are neat and clean, Swimming pool and restaurant are nice, especially Bar is Very calm and silent. Happy hours offer available for limited items. Staff are very friendly. Decent hotel in remote place.

This hotel gives you excellent value for the money. Not fancy but clean and nice. Friendly service but front desk needs improvement. Great dinner and breakfast included in our price. Indoor excellent conditions. But outdoors pretty rundown and needs serious update.

Staff are very friendly throughout the hotel. Lovely little get away a 5 year old. He loved the Chess set, trampoline and Sand Surfing. The pool was clean and the drink selection offered on the All inclusive package was more than substantial. The hotel was well sign posted and the email directions were clear enough. We would definitely be back again. Thank you

Relaxing and comfortable - well priced and and clean. Good selection of food for middle of desert. Satisfying breakfast. Excellent and attentive staff, informative and polite. Weather was to cold but great pool facilities. Be ready for an adventure, sand dunes, camels and the locals. Highly recommend a trip to Liwa
