“Cove Rotana Resort Review - Short Staycation”
Very nice and amazing hotel. Clean and relaxing place. If you want to relax and have a peace of mind, this is the place to visit. We felt we are in a different place. Check in and check out was quick. Special thanks to Alma and Elizabeth from Cinnamon restaurant, they are outstanding on their job. Always happy and smiling when accommodating guest.
We enjoyed both the infinity pools, so huge and nice. the beach was clean and amazing, the sand was smooth. The view was nice. The swing on the beach was number 1. Life guards are always watching and their eyes are always on the guest. The room cleaners are also quick and they followed our request for room compliments. Overall service was excellent.
When it comes to price, we had a good offer from Dnata so we managed to get good price with Half Board. Otherwise, if it's in weekend and holiday don't expect for a cheaper price. Good planning is required.
Slight things to improve. The guest reception should have known the timing's for the dinner in Cinnamon restaurant, as we know we have a meeting at night, We have asked the timing for dinner, she told us it was till 10:30pm, we reached the restaurant at 10pm, unfortunately, Mr. Ahsan told us it was close. Mr. Ahsan could have said that he could arrange food for us instead of offering "lunch" for the next day. He did his best, he took some food from the kitchen and served us. Although we felt ashamed on that situation.

Though only for a night we had an excellent stay. A crowded weekend leaded us to upgraded rooms and after a late check-in we were graciously extended a late checkout. The property is huge and all measures are being well taken for Covid protection. We were on the all inclusive offer - wouldn't say that the food (lunch n dinner) was extremely good as have enjoyed better, but the breakfast was superb. But apart from having a huge crowd the staff did nothing less to accommodate our needs. Thank you Cove for our much needed break - have spread the word to colleagues....do hope to visit for a longer stay.

“Taking a day off”
We had 3 days of complete relax in a structure which gave us the chance to do water sport activities being pampered by very kind staff.
Even on this COVID emergency the hotel follows the requested standard precaution reducing at minimum the queue inconvenient at the restaurant.
We will back soon ;_)

We booked four rooms. We were a group of 8 adults and 2 kids and we all had a great time!! The service, the safety guidelines, Covid awareness was to the point. The team is super nice and would love to visit again soon. Keep it up!!

“Best resort in UAE”
This place is a paradise during this pandemic giving respite to UAE residents stuck in-house due to travel restrictions. This place gives a rejuvenating experience with natural detoxification. I admire how beautifully the resort was built giving attention to beauty, comfort, nature all in together. By far the best staycation ever. Will come back soon !!

“A pleasant setting an unpleasant breakfast queuing”
The hotel lies in a very pleasant setting. Only the long queues to be seated for breakfast and served at the buffet stations was a long and uncomfortable wait. More staff or making more space in other restaurant locations would help. Furthermore the pool washroom facilities were not clean and all the distancing at the check in counters was in vain, looking at the pool facilities. Instead of 3 life guards 2 cleaners would be more suitable. And why closing the middle pool ladder with a red and white tape? It only causes congestion at the one ladder remaining at the far end. Some Covid-rules are put in place without making any sense.
