Very nice, clean and well-kept, hillside hotel. We had a deluxe room with a view of the sea and booked all inclusive, the high drink prices to escape, since it was very hot at this time and drink sufficiently should. The food was good and sometimes really good, especially from thursday night, as the friday is for the somewhat upscale locals population of the' sunday' and they leave it with their women and children in the hotel complex go well.

The Hotel was very nice! We had issues with check-in because the room was not ready when we arrived. We had to wait for an hour to get a room. The staff did offer some juices and coffee but i would have prefered checking in on time. Great break! We had the feeling that we travelled although we live in the UAE. Food was great. read hotel review

Fabulous stay in a very good hotel!

  • April 2014
My Boyfriend and I stayed in here for 2 nights to celebrate my 32nd Birthday and it was fabulous. From check in we were treated to luxuary The room was gorgeous with a lovely bathroom and a good shower. The breakfast was amazing, with everything what you can imagine ! Eggs, pancakes, fruits, yoghurts, cereals, pastries The location of this hotel is lovely, it offers a nice view and a quieter experience away from the tourist district ! All of the staff were fantastic, and nothing was ever too much trouble. In the evening you can eat in the Italian ... restaurant of the hotel or take a taxi to the Waldorf Astoria where you can enjoy UMI (Japanese restaurant). Also near Al Hamra golf, there are several good restaurants like the Belgian Beer Café. These restaurants you find only 10 minutes away from the Rotana Cove I would highly reccomend it for a couple or friends looking for a quiet hotel to relax and to get away from the busy life. One negative point is that you have to pay for wifi in the hotel. This should be included in the price. read hotel review

The area was very nicely arranged. Due to the many small villas, which spread out on the hillside and the lagoon were built, you can tell the size. It is very well maintained and clean. The guest structure was international at the average age at this time rather 50 plus. read hotel review
  • Gastronomy

    The food is varied and tasted. We had half board. At the dinner, then have a soft drinks and a bottle of water. A large beer costs about 7 Euro. In the main restaurant the staff of their depthwhen confronted with the onrush. Often the neighbor table of dishes and the drinks only after a long wait.

    There are 2 pools, the pool chairs were also always available on the beach. Every pool chair which has a pillow and a towel. The condition of the beach chairs was very good. Umbrellas are also available.

    A rental car was available for a week already for about 100 Euro, once fully refuel costs about 10-15 Euro, also taxi is cheap. There are several malls in the area, to foot is rather nothing except the own beach. The beach is ok.

  • Room
    3.0

    We had a deluxe room for 3 people. The check-in we were very arrogant treatment, because we with 3 people booked no mansion had. The deluxe rooms are very small, the extra bed is a cheap bed with almost no mattress. Our request, whether at least one 2. mattress for the rollaway to get is, was ignored - we would finally only a deluxe room... In the room there was only a small cabinet, which for 2 people too small to be might. The bathroom is ok, as well as the cleaning.

  • Service
    2.0

    With english everything worked very well. The friendliness of front desk and gastronomy staff seemed fake. The cleaning staff and the caddy driver however, are really friendly. Complaints were ignored (see observation to the room).
