  • 8.0.Very good

    Overall good but bit overpriced

    Overall a good option for a Dubai short break. For the price however, I would expect better facilities & a nicer pool area with a more luxury design. The villa felt a bit dated & the outdoor was a little small again relative to the price & some of their competitors. Activities were great but I would have like to do some mountain biking. The walking paths inside the hotel are a bit too narrow so often we had to stand on the sand to allow the vehicles to pass. In the restaurant many sections say 'healthy' but that food is NOT healthy...it's high in sugar...dates+mango+other sweet things is not healthy...a lot of sugar in everything (especially salad) is not good for you. I think a better idea would be some low carbohydrate or even keto meals.

    To have a Bedouin Suite with private pool in the middle of the desert is amazing. Seeing animals in the wild as you sit around the pool or waiting around the conservation.

    Al Maha is Always a Great stay. Wonderful place with fantastic crew. I only could suggest that the food serving in the room needs to be improved. It is tasty but it reaches all together and gets cold or icecream melting

    This is a super special place, service is the one of the best we have experinced and we have stayed at amazing places, food was excellent and super relaxing and desert is beautiful. Sadly we only stayed 1 night, at the time there was only one room available for 1 night. I would recommend staying at least 2 night. a really special experience

    It's certainly a getaway hotel. The staff were very nice. Kevin was our activities manager who was professional and knowledgeable about wildlife and nature. The complimentary activities were superb and well arranged. Gazelles were just everywhere. Camel ride was fun. The dining experience in the restaurant was great and the food there were delicious. Must tried the 4-course dinner in the restaurant. Recommended to stay at least 2 night in the hotel if who loves nature. The pitfall was super expensive but it's understandable because of the setting and limited rooms in the hotel. We had a great and memorable experience
