2/10 Poor

Property by itself is huge area, and its not in general all bad, what is bad is the fact that once you book for the complex they automatically resend your reservation to the Al Waha Hotel which is the third in line of ShangriLa and far away from 5 star lux hotel complex, the facility needs some urgent renovations and the gas smell inside and outside the resort is far from eco-friendly. Food was disaster (Samba bar is lacking in cleanliness and quality). People working there however were nice and pleasant. Room is far away from “lux and 5 star classification “
