Please build a high wall! It is not really relaxing to spend holidays with travic noises day and night! The services were great at the reception and in the restaurant. The service People were friendly and did their best.

Beautiful resort, with a huge potential and areas for development. First impression was a disappointment. The access card did not unlock our villa. They needed half an hour to figure out the problem and moving us to another villa. The resort needs a bigger spa with more rooms and a ladies-only pool (just like Rixos Bab Al Bahar) Super slow house-keeping service. Took them more than an hour to provide us with an extra bed. The transportation by cars or buggy is one of their strengths. Very quick service. Food is average. Shisha is not recommended. Overall, I would give it 6.5/10

We went on a Ultra all inclusive deal to the Village which is part of the Cove Rotana. The rooms are lovely and spacious and the pools are great with a separate kids pool and pool with slides. The problem is with the word “ultra”as you think this means the top of all inclusive but unfortunately it isn’t in this case it just means you get branded drinks. Wine is served in a carafe. There’s always plenty of water but if you want sparkling water you get a can of soda water. When you eat at the Beach House on the beach you only have a limited menu. And can only choose 1 item. If however you are a paying guest not all inclusive staying at the Cove you have a different menu with bottles of sparkling water. They let you have one meal per stay in the a la carte restaurant, there again a very limited menu with cans of soda & house wine. All inclusive guests are not allowed to use the pool, bar & lounge of the Cove. Water sports were not included either. Also, the food was a bit repetitive. The staff were excellent though and good service. In conclusion we felt like 2nd class citizens being all inclusive. However we did have a good time. I think guests should be aware what the hotel means by ultra all inclusive, it’s not what you think!

Very lovely and cozy place. Some villas have their own swimming pool (not heated though :(). Quick service, nice food, holiday mood - all what is needed for a nice break! Staff was very helpful and friendly.

I was using Cobone for the stay. During check in I had paid for my dinner in advance. Despite making the payment in advance, I had to face the following issues at the Restaurant (Cinnamon Rest.): 1. Ordered Juices, the restaurant staff took order and after 5 mins come back and said, ‘you are not covered under your package’; moreover, they also said I will have to pay for the water as well. We were ok with that as I was not sure of the moneys paid in advance at the time of check-in. 2. While leaving the restaurant, I was STOPPED by, to sign or pay the dinner bill. Very disgusting, despite me telling the staff, I have already paid for the dinner, he was reluctant to check the computer system; however, following an argument he then called the reception and he said its alright. No courtesy to acknowledge the error on resort All I have to say, having done 10 things right, one incident had impacted my opinion on the Resort! Secondly, with reference to the overall condition of bathroom where I was staying, We had experienced foul stink coming from bathroom!

Great time with my family! New hotel, fresh and clean room. Weather is also great! Service was very professional and nice. All the problems we have was solved by the hotel staff. The are really kind..

excellent service, high standard, top food, all perfectly clean and helpful staff. our past experience has confirmed to us that you are a top network of hotel facilities. we will surely visit you all over the world.

Over all my visit was good i think it would be more fun if during our arrival someone could offer us to view the whole property first and then could take us to room because we missed on so many funs.. Even on first day we have no clue pool will be close so fast..

The beach is a bit disappointing. Just a narrow strip of brown sandy beach, plastic sun beds just spread out without any order. The staff at the beach bar is extremely slow and incompetent. The Hotel facility is dispersive, long distance between the rooms and the beach. You have to take golf cars all the time or be prepared for a uphill walk. No entertainment at all, soon after dinner it's bed time.

It was a great stay for 1 nights. We were 2 couples and we had a great time. the hotel has its own identity and makes you feel like you travelled outside UAE thanking everyone at Cove Rotana. Will definitely come back.
