A Fantastic Holiday

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time that my friends and I have visited RAK and spent time in this wonderful apartment .

And I have just booked to go back in June.

The complex is secure and safe with all the amenities you would need nearby, the adjacent marina is a great place to go both during the day and for a lovely dinner in the evening. The staff in both the complex and marina are helpful friendly and welcoming.

The apartment itself is perfect, beautifully decorated, very well appointed with everything you need and the balcony especially in the evening is a joy, watching the sunset over the sea with a G&T in hand - what could be better.

Mark and Carmel have left lots of information in the apartment which is really helpful and the process of receiving and returning keys is simple and efficient.

Overall a fantastic place with wonderful accommodation and great amenities.

That's why I am going back 🤗

Perfect for a chill out

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place for a chill out with guaranteed winter sunshine. The apartment was a great location, spacious, nicely furnished, well equipped, in good condition and clean. Although north west facing, the balcony was overlooking the beach and was a great location for shade during the daytime and for watching the sunset in the evening.

The pool was very close & the beach just a short walk across the marina road. The nearby marina was a great place for breakfast and dinner, or just for drinks and watching sky sports. The nearby 'Waitrose' supermarket sold everything you needed, with lovely meat & fish if you fancied cooking your own meals.

Mark provided lots of helpful information before we even left the UK.

Would definitely recommend for a relaxing time providing you don't expect any hectic evening entertainment.

Owner's Response: Thanks Linda sounds like you had a great time and we are always pleased when guests enjoy the apartment. November is always a good time to go to RAK. Trust me NW facing is good as you avoid the full sun in the daytime but enjoy the late sun and sunsets. Perfect on the balcony! Mark.

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

Myself,wife and our two teenage daughters have just returned from two amazing weeks in this magnificent luxurious apartment. The setting is truly stunning as are all the fixtures and fittings and yes the views and especially the sunsets from the fantastic balcony are spectacular. The marina complex is also very impressive with excellent security. Quite often we had the large pool, beach and beautiful Arabian Sea to ourselves. There are several restaurants on the marina to try. The staff are all very welcoming and the food excellent. Next door to the apartment is a convenience store that we used everyday. The fresh bread was lovely. They also do delivery. There are lots of places to visit in RAK we went on a desert safari, mountain safari, shopping, Iceland water park, Dubai, and visited RAK aviation centre where we all flew over RAK. Taxis are very cheap and it is easy to get around. We must also thank Mark and Carmel who have been extremely helpful with all our questions before our holiday and provided us with lots of information about the area and apartment which all helped to make our holiday unforgettable. We cannot wait to return and would recommend this apartment to anyone.

Location

From the Owner

The apartment is in a great location directly facing the beach, the warm sea for swimming and the resort is quality and in a superb location. It is also quiet, secure, no evidence of crime and the weather is fantastic! You have access to a number of swimming pools the Marina Bar & Restaurant. You also have a floodlight Golf Course all part of the Resort which makes for a great holiday! We have travelled to Dubai many times, first in 2002, when this was like a desert. Today Dubai is very busy and with many high rise buildings and a fast pace of life. RAK by contrast is 45 mins away. It is much quieter, not as busy and not as many high rise buildings. Indeed this is regulated. Many people from Dubai now come to RAK for a holiday! Our view is that RAK has become the new Marbella!!
