Iberotel Miramar Al Aqah Beach Resort fujairah Reviews
Beach side Eid al Fitr Break Aug 01, 2014
The Eid al Fitr break was upon us and my wife's new company surprisingly gave her the whole week off. Many of the hotels in the UAE were fully booked for the days we wanted to be away but we found a deal on Booking.com at the Iberotel Miramar Al Aqah.
On the East Coast of the UAE and part of the Emirate of Fujairah the hotel is one of a number of resorts that have sprung up on this stretch of beach over the last few years with more under construction. The Miramar is a low rise building of Moroccan style supposedly. The main lobby was very busy when we arrived but a side lobby had been opened to speed up the process and despite the amount of people checkin went smoothly. Our room was not yet ready as we were a little early so we had lunch at the poolside restaurant. Despite a minor complaint over a chipped glass lunch was very good. A phone call as we were finishing announced the room was ready so up we went to check it out.
Nice room on the top of three floors with a sea view of nearby Snoopy Island. After a quick change it was down to the beach. The beach here is quite steeply shoved and as the sea was quite rough care would have to be taken if you had kids with you. With Temps in the mid 40's oC an occasional dip was essential. The usual waterspouts activities are on offer and the area has a good rep as a scuba destination.
After showering and chill out time in the room it was time for dinner.A small problem with the A/C seemingly stuck on Arctic setting was soon fixed. The main Restaurant is buffet style and very busy so we opted for the quieter poolside restaurant that we had used for lunch. An Italian menu in the evenings which was very nice and reasonably priced.It is as always in this country the alcohol that bumps up the cost.
Our next two days followed the same pattern but by the lovely pool instead of the beach. All too soon it was time to leave and head back to Dubai. The hotel is well worth a look and prices are much cheaper when it's not peak holiday season.
