Location of the hotel and the views from lagoon villas toward the sea. Kitchen was not equiped.
Food was fantastic, beachside loungers were great and had a fantastic massage at the spa. Our room smelt very damp. The swimming pools are too cold.

The design or layout of the hotel, all rooms, apartments spread over the area as being in a Mediterranean village. Room suffered a bit from moisture smell due to the airco.
Warm and friendly staff,Excellent services,Good food,Wonderful thematic setting.
Nothing to like about this hotel as their management do not have any respect for customers any they only care about money................... The management of the Cove Rotana Resort rejected my confirmed booking during a Public Holiday, because a had a discount rate from my travel agency ................... The Hotel had increased their room rate during the Public Holiday and rejected my confirmed booking on a discount rate........., I made my booking before 5 days of my stay and at that time still there was a lot of rooms available, about the same time when the public holiday was announced. I made my booking through a travel agency and not through the hotel site for 3 nights ............. Before going to the hotel I contacted them for my booking, they adviced me that I don't have a booking and I should contact my travel agency. Without stating that the hotel rejected my confirmed reservation because of the discount rate I had. ............ When I contacted my travel agency, they assured me that my booking is confirmed and I don't have to worry. ........... When I arrived at the Hotel on my reserved day, the front disk had no respect for my confirmed reservation. They only answered me with "we rejected your reservation", after waiting in a long queue for my check-in ............ I asked to speak to their manager, waited for more time and asked for the Manager for few times before they show up. They simply answered "we are not responsible for your booking and your travel agency are responsible" ............. I tried to reach a solution with their managers, but they simply stated we are fully booked and can't offer you anything. What is worst, they had a booking for the second and and 3rd night of my booking, but they asked me to pay full rate and my reservation discount payment Is not accepted.
The Cove is beautifully designed and the facilities are excellent. Our room had a private pool and a great view. The service in the restaurants was great. The front desk service was very poor and the airport transfer we booked didn't turn up to pick us up from the airport! Also, the pools are still too cold and need to be heated up
Excellent location with stunning views from infinity pools. Great place to chill out and relax away from the hustle of city life in the Gulf. Fabulous summer prices! Highly recommend seaview room on level four if available. Alternatively, would be great to have 2-bedroom villa with own splash pool and sea view -- awesome! Sewer/water smell in room. Reported to reception. All complaints were acknowledged and dealt with professionally and satisfactorily.
the hotel setup being spead on the shore like a medeterainian village
Got checked in late and was upgraded to a villa with pool. Fantastic. Great location, beautiful area and beach. Lights in bedroom didn't work, restaurant selection is not that varied but overall I would return again for sure.
The location is good and it luxury hotel. The chekin to hotel are very late, also the chekout is vary slow.
Wonderful setting, great food, good facilities and rooms. lovely beach and good spa. Expensive for the standard and in comparision to other resorts. Rooms and in room amenities ok but not luxury for the price. Service a little slow at times - room service & housekeeping in particular. No choice of pillows in terms of softness/hardness.
The place was very nice also the view was amazing Nothing much but we ask for the room service for something it come late to us
Big rooms, very good food Timings for pool, beach and kids club only till sun down. Which is a pretty short because there is nothing else to do at the resort and with kids in tow nothing to keep them occupied either.
OVERALL A GOOD FAMILY ORIENTATED HOTEL INITIALLY GIVEN A ROOM WITH A LOT OF NOISE (APPARENTLY THE HOT WATER HATING SYSTEM WAS ABOVE THE ROOM)AFTER THREE COMPLAINTS TO MANAGEMENT I WAS MOVED TO ANOTHER ROOM NOT SATISFACTORY AS I BOOKED TWO SEA FACING ROOMS BUT WAS MOVED TO TWO ROOMS WITHOUT SEA FACING VIEWS
Everything was great
When i reached the hotel i realized that the hotel is offering a 30% discount for UAE nationals, which means at least 200 dollars on what i paid. this issue make think not to depend on booking.com to make reservations inside UAE because i may get better offers making booking by telephone . i hope in the future such information should be transparent and available for the costumer to help him make better decisions.
Quite, Relaxation , very nice view, staff are very kind. - I toke more than one hour to check out from the resort. - Some time workers are roaming in front of swimming pool and break your privecy. - Room service is bad and inadequate.
Simply Everything !!!
the villa was amazing very nice decoration,, the pool size is really good for two people,, quite relaxing place and open to the desert not crowded at all,, I did like the moon bar where u can have food, drinks and shisha,, there food prices was little bid high but for the drinks it is really cheap. lack o facilities,, there only two restaurants plus one bar and the resort is very big there should be more places to relax in they can place another bar,, the price some how is expensive 2600 ++ DHS for the normal villa I think it is over rated ,, the fair price should be around 1500 DHS.
Every thing was so nice about this Hotel
The villa , swimming pool, amenities in the villa,staff of the hotel, the whole atmosphere of luxury and relaxation. The food in Al Waha and Saffron is very expensive and average quality.The water rotation in the swimming pool makes very unpleasant suction noise so we did not stay on the terrace in the evening because of that althought the weather was very pleasant.
Rengøringen var virkelig I top og receptionisterne meget venlige Alt på hotellet er meget dyrt. Dårlig roomservice.
Dejligt værelse, søde og høflige ansatte,god service, pænt rent.Dejlige fredelige omgivelser, flot have. Nej.
Dejligt nyt hotel med gode store værelser. Rigtig god morgenbuffet. Serviceminded hotelpersonale. Hotellet ligger ude midt i et industriområde med langt til butikker og seværdigheder, så der er ikke mulighed for at gå en tur.Langt til stranden. Hotellet var ikke helt færdig, da vi boede der, så der var larm fra håndværkerne.
a lot of activities, and the Chalet was very comfortable and service was fast and he food was very testy hoel staff was very friendly and experianced. nothing
This is a nice resort,room was good nice location as well,it was good to have the buffet by the pool on friday night need to review the breakfast buffet menu and give bit more seaction(bread was not so good)
The view was nice The pool closed to early , should at least stay open until 11 pm.
Swimming pool, lifesaver did his best to control usage (but not his job), room size, terrace. Poor recreational facilities (only game table soccer and was broken), banana ride and donut "broken", having to pay for tennis court, food was horrible, poor restaurant organisation (buffet) , dirty beach at low tide (sand is black from oil deposits), too few TV channels
Massage center and the dinner. Staff was not friendly.
Though my room is up graded without any extra payment, which I appreciate but frankly there is a lot to be desired in the hotel to be- For me- a 4 Star resort.
We enjoyed as a family walking along the beach and the family environment it offers; in addition to the quiet ambiance at night on one side and the outdoor music played on the other side which give you the option to enjoy the evening the way you like. Kids enjoyed the beach and pool during the day, and the playground in the evening. To have more varieties in the buffet selection for breakfast and lunch, in addition to increasing the number of lifeguards at the pools and the beach.
the beach was soo nice and quite. the surrounding gardens are tranquil. the veranda at night was very nice and quite. during public holidays the swimming pool was very noisy until late timing
beach is not clean, even due to break water is smelly, very poor beach
location , quiet & calm ness of resort it wasn't worth the 4* star rating , it was ok to spend a night..... shouls be much better
I liked the location of the hotel and the swimming pool& beech. The hotel is basically for Europeans,according to my experiance.I went with my kinds ans selected the hotel based on my requirement of having a good kids paly area,which was inforemd in your website but actually it is not there.The facilities are less.I suggest show in the website what is actually there.
swimming pool but its too cold no heating system . at early morning the water at the garden its very bad smile. (and also at night ) .the gym equipment its old &poor also its rusty.the bathroom its smile bad .the staff don't know about city as asked about the cinema he said only India cinema ??!! but I found Arabic cinema at caarfour . they need training.
the restaurant we had breakfast in was very dirty
beachside. lunch buffet menu.
Breakfast meal was marvelous. Filipino staffs are really kind, even bell boys, and cooks. Did not like that towels are not available anytime, aside that is limited per day, the staff assigned there is not giving the right number of towels to right number of guests.
the beach the elevator is awful. my hand got stuck between the elevator's door. it is not safe at all. to go to the beach you have to go through stairs which is not good for old people.
The staff was super friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and comfortable - not super fancy, but perfect for getting a good night sleep. There are a lot of beautiful plants and flowers outside. Having the beach less than a hundred meters away is great! The weight room needed more AC units - it had two, but they just couldn't keep up! Along the walkway in between the hotel and the beach at night there is a disgusting scent... It's only in a couple of small areas, and I'm not sure if it's a stagnant pool of water, animal feces, or something else.
there is no taxi , every time waiting in hot weather for taxi go to near street
it's one of the best trips we had on a tight budget,very relaxing and breathtaking view. honestly,none.I want to go back.
the beach and the swiming pool areas are the best
We enjoyed the beach and the pool.
It was close to the Marathon venue The furniture of the room, the bed cover, etc.
Staff very helpful No major faults
The service of the restaurant staff was very good at breakfast. Parking was insufficient.
The staff people were good. Its not bad, but doesn't worth that much, the place is very poor, no swimming pool.
Stayed 2 nights with family of 2 older kids. A bit pricey compared to other city hotels but conveniently located hotel. Could not hear any music at nights as some guests mentioned in their review. The carpet was a bit dirty but we did not complain as it was manageable since we came to the room only at nights.
I didn't find something that attracted me.
Good buffet breakfast No swimming pool, no gym facilities
The Staff were very friendly and helpful There was no hot water only warm
A comfortable and relaxing weekend within a clean and friendly atmosphere Too short a stay to make any adverse comments. I enjoyed my stay and did so on the advice of others.
