I have stayed twice in this property and I like the rooms as it is neat and decent.
As you went up to the floors - to your rooms from the elevator you will be met by a 3-way alley which are all leading to the rooms. They have a garden view which actually has a direct view to the main road and facing KFC (Kentucky Fried Chicken). They have the ocean and mountain view which is superb, and looking below from these rooms is their almost-Olympic size swimming pool.
The rooms are cozy, dark colored wood frames and LED TV's. There are a few options in the minibar and the tea coffee facilities are complimentary which includes a couple of bottled water. The toilets are simple, decent, and comfortable to be in. All rooms are smoking, except the ground floor sections, which are all restaurant lounges, reception, and the lobby.
This hotel does not served alcohol since it is under the jurisdiction of the emirate of Sharjah which follows the policy of KSA (Kingdom of Saudi Arabia).
Since we only had breakfast, the breakfast menu is alright, except for the fruits being served. They could have served more seasonal fruits such as mangoes and watermelon, but instead they are serving pineapple which lacks sweetness and sliced bananas which are dipped in the water but it did not help maintain the original color of the bananas instead its blackish and unattractive. For all I know, bananas are served as whole and not sliced. Breakfast is served in their Al Murjan Restaurant which faces the Gulf of Oman, which makes a fascinating breakfast view along with the brewed coffee.
The swimming pool is temperature controlled, very well maintained. They have an all-day watching life guards in both swimming pools and the beach. They have towels and neat sun beds. Their recreational facilities are quite okay; they have floor chess board where if you wish to play, you have to carry the characters to make a move. The beach is not that enticing as it is not clear considering that it is across the free port area located almost across the resort, though the whole shoreline stretch is beige sand.
Overall service is friendly and friendly staff, can't complain I say, and besides I had no demands to be exact since I only stayed over the weekend with a group of friends.

Twice the fun and twice the sun. The first time visit to Fujeirah was an exciting and unexpected fun, but the second time was an escapade of adventure.
Twice we stayed at the Oceanic Hotel in Khorfakkan. Khorfakkan is in Fujeirah but it is under the ruling of the emirate of Sharjah. However, if you drive a few meters away, it is once again …
... see what all the commotion was. Less than ½ mile of the starboard was clearly visible the street lights of a coast road and more notably the lights of a small town. The rumours were flying around. ‘It looks like we’re back in Dubai’, I heard one passenger say with a voice of authority to his wife. ‘Do you think it was too dangerous to carry on after today’s activities?’ said another with a genuine air of concern in her voice.
... before we stopped for lunch at one of the resorts where we had the option to go for a swim in either the pool or the ocean. There were quite a few people in the ocean, but watching them leave the water to go back to their chairs was enough to keep me from even attempting to put my feet in the water. They ran as fast as they could to get off the burning sand. It was hotter than any sand I've ever felt, and I could only walk on the beach for a minute before I had to find some ...
Apparently it was colder than usual here today - an average of only 25C during the day, but it did feel a little cooler along the Corniche. The Corniche is basically a promenade that runs for about 5 miles or so alongside a man-made public beach, although that description doesn't really do it justice. The strip of land between the footpath and the beach is landscaped and there are strategically ...
... apart from a sinus infection I am in rude health. The service received was of the highest order, but so too was the bill! I struck a deal with the ship’s agent to pay him in Euros – 210 in fact and he would settle with the medical centre. Apparently it was the blood test that racked the cost up and that showed my blood/sugar, cholesterol and everything else were all fine – none of which I was concerned about! I just hope the ...
