It's nice to go there for 3 nights and enjoy the activities. The Safari, was nice but not impressive. The most thing I've loved is the calmness, far away from the bustle of the city. restaurants were good. we tried Samak for seafood and it was Yummi !
the operator and room service don't answer your calls from the first time ! not even third !
I like the island
Excellent resort for the whole family. All the staff were very friendly and professional. Loved the safari drive.
Nothing, everything was excellent.
Would have been useful to have more vegetarian options and a kids activity area.
Safari tour was AWESOME! Our tour guide was superb! The ocean is gorgeous and there is a PADI diving site right there on the island!
Price was a bit high for the new year's eve gala but even that wasn't bad!!!
The activities, the food choice, the flexibility of using the facilities between the hotels, the transfer, the staff.
I would like to find a non-alcoholic beer available in the hotel :)
Location fantastic.... Good concept....kids friendly... Lots of thinge to do.... Activity team
Not much options for vegetarians & only 3 restaurants... Food is a big issue.... No food for kids
Courteous staff, quick check in, warm welcome, great tastefully done up rooms, great location.
Would like to have some check out counters. Waited 20 minutes to pay bill and check out.
we enjoyed the activities such as archery and the safari drive and many more. The breakfast buffet was excellent.
The smell of the towels was very strong, intoxicating almost.
Going to Sir Bani Yas is like traveling to heaven. In December, the weather is amazing for all the activities offered there. We visited all the hotels there, and we found that Desert Islands is the best when it comes to accommodating a family of small kids. Garden delux room is great for kids to play in the greenery outside while parents can watch them from inside the room. Kids enjoyed playing in the kids and teens club. The wildlife tour was exquisite ! The room was clean and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The whole journey reminded us of our honeymoon in Mauritius .. Yes the place was that special! Thank you
ability to travel between hotels
high prices for short exercusions
Desert Islands Resort exceeded all expectations. The quality and cleanliness of rooms, attention to detail and the location were A+. The staff member from Desert Islands Resort named Denise who greeted us and gave a tour of the resort really made us feel welcome and instantly at ease. Her high standard, friendliness and professionalism set the stage for a wonderful trip.
Very Slow room service
I loved the safari tour. Great exprience.
Activities are too expensive. I remember the safari used to cost around 100 dirhams per person. Now it is 245 dirhams. I was told the price will go even higher 45%!
Breakfast spread, the staff friendliness, the decor of the hotel and generally relaxing ambience, the view, free wi-fi, the wildlife safari, greenery, the boat ride.. Could go on!!
Menu at the Samak restaurant was very limited, the shower wasn't working well(no hot water and wasn't fixed even when we asked so) , the beach isn't really for swimming.
We thoroughly enjoyed the 3 day break spent with you ... your staff are superb, especially Maria who couldn't do enough for us - she's a STAR! Our room was MAGNIFICENT and the food was delicious ... thank you for everything :):):)
The long drive down from Dubai!
we liked everything, very special thank to Mehreen at the reception. Wishes: add free windsurfing (often windy) supermarket - .... Gala and Alex
My baby girl enjoyed the wildlife safari and also was very comfortable at the resort. Loved the pool and ambience.
The location is very far from Dubai. The beach in front of the hotel is very rocky.
I loved the flower drink upon arrival The hotel in general was very nice Loved seeing the falcon in reception The safari was good and staff too Olio food and staff was excellent
Too much noise from other rooms and the music in the corridors Operator was virtually unavailable most of the time that I called The food at Samak was poor to the say the least. The quality of breakfast at Palm restaurant was average
The nature and surroundings
We loved that it feels like you're a million miles away from home and busy city life. The island is so peaceful, the activities on offer kept us busy but there was still plenty of time to relax poolside. The staff were all very helpful and we had a brilliant weekend.
We were upgraded to a one bedroom villa, since our room wasn't ready in time and the AC wasn't working. Safari was amazing.
It's a very long drive. Better to take a plane.
power outages, moldy rooms
