    I tried many hotels but Anantara is different and from now on it will be my preferred hotel wherever I go :)

    The room service takes long.

    It´s my hobby to find in hotels things that could be made/organized better :) In this place everything was excellent. Very welcoming staff, stylish facilities, wonderful breakfast. The trip with water taxi was smooth and lasted around 30 minutes. It was free of charge. The nature and animal tour (1,5h) was lovely. We saw the giraffes :) that was our goal. The fee for the tour was (2 adults one child) a bit over 600 Dirhams. The value for money was good.

    The display of AC regulationsystem in our room was not good readable on daylight.

    The location and property is pretty good. Check in process was fast and we got our rooms as requested.

    Very few options for eating considering that guest rely on choices on their property. No prior notice is given to us that restuarants require reservation so when we approach we come to know its fully booked. The staff is polite but very disorganized and unprofessional. We faced few inconvenineces during our stay and were totally relying on the island staff as you don't have other options. Activities are quite ok and over priced. Booked Kayaking only to know last minute got cancelled due to bad weather. If we were told in advance that can get cancelled we would book some other activity which would not get cancelled. Overall the place is good for its location but they need to improve on their service.

    Amazing staff and location, the boat experience is an added value to our vacation. The mountain bike (advanced track was excellent).

    We were around 80 guests leaving the island in the same time but the boat capacity was only 60. There was another boat but the captain was not available. We waited around an hour and a half to solve this issue. A bit of miss organization on the transportation level.

    Food, setting, facilities, room, staff, transfers, all excellent, as were the activities we tried (nature drive & horse riding).

    Amwaj restaurant having a staff meeting whilst we were dining. Plus, 3 mains on menu not available on one occasion. Some of the sun longer mattresses by the main pool were threadbare and split, not very becoming of a 5 star hotel.

    The Activities, the friendliness of the staff, the atmosphere, the island overall!

    The choices for dinner were limited for a longer stay, the quality (Amwaj) and variation (the dinner buffet of The Palm) below expectation sometimes. All in all not at the same level as Qasr Al Sarab e.g. The hotel beach itself was unfinished/under construction?

    We had a most wonderful visit, whilst a long way from Australia, it was well worth it. Celebrating my wife's birthday was made even more special, with a surprise birthday cake. Thank you to all the staff for your attention to detail, and quality service from the front desk team, to the restaurants and pool staff. Will definitely be recommending to our fellow travel friends. Flying over is also the most convenient mode of transport. Also a pleasure to meet the General Manager, fellow Australian!

    It was a bit overpriced especially with the taxes on everything.
