We loved our stay at Bab Al Shams. The staff was so kind and helpful. They anticipated our every need and they addressed us by name. I was most impressed. The food was delicious. The breakfast buffet gave us a chance to try Emirati dishes and we all loved the smoothies. The Indian restaurant was our favorite! The extra activities let us experience the desert. We did the desert drive, camel riding and falconry. The guides made the experiences even more memorable. he rooftop bar, the shisha, the service, the man playing out in the sunset, the food, the dining area under the stars - Everything gave an amazing feeling. It is almost an hour drive from Dubai and it's quite expensive, but it's absolutely worth going there.
