    Excellent property with an amazing setting. Truly fairytale in its experience. Activity management lacked, with very minimal spots and most activities restricted or unavailable even though resort was not very busy.

    This is an amazing place! The customer service is the best part of this hotel! Check in was delightful thought it took a while. We were given stuffed camels and a date drink. To get back and forth around the property, you can call for carts which are quick to pick up. Room was beautiful, clean, and comfy. Food was decent--maybe a tad overpriced, but considering they have to haul everything to the desert, it makes sense. The buffet breakfast was amazing and my favorite part. Also, beautiful views! The pool area workers were okay, but again, everywhere else was fantastic.

    Great stay with great amenities. Some minor issues with the room, but they were resolved quickly. Given COVID-19 restrictions there were some minor delays with check-in and getting seating for breakfast but it did not bother us. We were pleased to see them complying with all the new regulations.
