Fabulous 8.8 From 84 reviews

Poor 2.0
Terrible service for a Ritz Carlton
From misleading photos when we booked, to a pool that was 36 degrees, to repairs conducted for hours in our villa and many issues with housekeeping, this stay was terrible. When it was The Banyan tree it was great. We won’t stay here again.

Fles flies and flies
great hotel. when we arrived there were probably 1000 flies and we had to call front desk to exterminiate them. Second day we had about 1000 flies outside on pool area. Call before arriving to have flies eradicated, sadly.

It was good but the room was not clean and the rate was expensive for the service which I got it
Ali, ie2 night trip

a weekend stay in RAK
Was a nice stay however when we received a wrong letter (having the name of other hotel customers) from the management wishing us a great stay we complained to the hotel management and their action was to send someone to pick the letter up and not even send us a correct one or apologise, a day later the hotel called us to ask how is our stay and upon complaining about that issue they didn’t try to rectify it or even apologise, so what’s the point of trying to ask about someone’s experience when you can’t even do something about it? Other than that the service could be improved, that being said the rest of the stay was pleasant.

weekend getaway!
We loved everything about our stay! It was a night staycation, super recommended, great getaway for a family or a couple! The staff and team are great, the services and amenities are awesome. The only thing we didn't totally love is the food. Will go back for sure!
ie1 night trip
Good 6.0
Great location but activities felt simple and basic. Never really got the feeling of being in the desert, all close it in the property and always signs if civilization around. Honorable mention for the Kids Club: great organization, staff and quality. Not for the main pool that was so cold I didn’t see more than 2-3 people in it over 3 days stay (I went once... nearly froze to death). Pity as great setting and attentive staff, but broken thermometer for measuring water temperature 😬 Service is attentive but inconsistent; often not getting it right at the first shot but making up for it quickly and reactively. A nice property just not meeting my expectations for the Ritz brand and too pricey for the final product / experience.
