Hilton Ras Al Khaimah
Travel Blogs from Ras Al Khaimah
Hey everyone! Today, a lovely girl called Alex came down to spend the day with me at the beach. She's the sister of a guy that's mum works with, and is on a stopover from New Zealand where she's lived for 4 years to England to visit her family. We went down to the beach about 11:30, met with Alex's cousin, her husband and their kids. The beach was …
Even though we arrived late, around 22:30 hrs, there were absolutely no problems with checking in. We'd taken the option of guaranteeing the room with the c/c and this worked fine. Our details were already registered and it was a simple matter of swiping the c/c and being given the key to the room. The hotel was up to the usual Hilton standards (photos to come later).
... myself to a Guinness and a burger. After the traveling I had just done, they hit the spot. It was quite late by the time we finished, so we said goodbye to the friend and headed back. The next morning, we had a breakfast of rice and eggs before heading to the beach. His apartment was within walking distance to one of the only public beaches in the area. Jumeirah 1 was the big white sandy beach's name, and it had volleyball courts, a walking/roller skating path, and lots ...
... put in my headphones and zoned out for an hour or so. There's not much to say after that. We got back to where my mum lives, unpacked, and went down to the supermarket across the road. One of my mum's friends invited us round for a take-away at theirs, so that's where we have spent the evening. The couple were lovely, I hope we can spend some more time with them while I'm here.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Ras Al Khaimah
We booked a stay in that hotel directly [--]
Upto 3 weeks before we travelled to UAE, we had planned to go to Mexico, sadly it was cancelled due tothe Hurricanes,after seeing on Teletext Value added Travel a good deal for Dubai at the Hilton in Ras al Khaimah we were curious having always wanted to go but a little wary we spoke to Bobby at Value Added Travel, he persuaded us as to where to go and about the Hotel, He was not Wrong, it was a wonderful location,friendly, polite helpful staff, clean and large room, and the food was excellent, and really good value for money, I would recommend this hotel to anyone,although there is a lot of building every where you turn it did not affect this location,
i stayed at this hotel over the summer holiday, and booked with a company named value added travel, great service from the tour oporator, gave me a holiday i will never forget. the hotel is excellent and i compare it to hotels on jumeriah beach like the royal meridien and the al qasr. the beach club was jsut excellent, pure relaxation for me and lots for the kids to do in the beach club.
I booked my holiday with VALUE ADDED TRAVEL. The hilton was excellent. Me and my partner went with an all inclusive basis which i can say i got for excellent value. Their private beach was only situated a few minutes away in which a mini bus is always there to take you back and forth from the hotel. The private beach was fantastic, can't wait to go back next year.
The hotel staff could not do enough to help, the food was good and not to badly priced. The wine is expensive and not very good quaility! we stayed B+B and found the local Manor Mall great for cheap, good quality food and only 5 dirhams in a taxi.
Stayed here for long weekend during tour of the Emirates which included Dubai and Abu Dhabi. Don't expect too much from Ras Al Khaimah when compared to Dubai, though there is the Shopping Mall, Ten pin bowling alley and new 18 hole floodlit golf course with 'state of the art' GPRS buggies!!
first time visit to RAK,as previously visited dubai.
for a peaceful and relaxing trip rather than the building works of dubai a
trip to RAK is well worth it.
the hilton was a excellant hotel although it looked a bit worn from the outside.
staff a credit to the hotel but the real bonus was the hilton beach club.a few minutes ride in the hotel shuttle bus led to this fantastic private beach club which also had 3 pools and 2 beach bars.
food here was excellant and again the staff were excellant.
we took the AI package and found it to be well worth the money.
would definately visit again.
Thank you to those members who gave me information prior to my trip on June 30th, 2005.
Just returned from a week All Inclusive at this hotel and couldn't fault it. Wouldn't say it was a 5 star but definitely a 4 star. Food was fantastic with lots of choices and people were extremely friendly and helpful. The hotel was spotless and towels/linen changed when you wanted it. Pool towels were supplied free next to the pool plus the beach club. The beach club was only 7 minutes away by free shuttle and well worth a visit. There are 2 swimming pools and a kiddies pool plus the long stretch of beach which had about a 150 sunloungers on it but only about 10 people - so you feel as if the beach is yours! Food here was first class and there is a bbq on Fridays. Beach has a bar which opened about 11am. Very disappointed that there was no snorkelling after everyone raved about it but we did see a turtle and there were a few blue jellyfish (not harmful). They offer a shuttle coach to Dubai which took 1.5 hours to get there but 3.5 to get back!! You did get 6 hours in Dubai - long day but for free couldn't complain. Use the hotel for trips as they were cheaper and better value than Holiday Rep - you could barter a bit with them aswell. They offered a discount if you booked 2 trips anyway.
We stayed at this hotel in November 2004. The hotel is more 4 star than 5. and once you shut your door you could be in any Hilton in the world. Dont expect any great views from the hotel. You can look out on the creek but get a Water works as well. We got a good deal on our holiday from The Travel Collection and the hotel was well worth the money we spent. We were all inclusive and the food was lovely, lots of selection each night. The bar was nice was a good live band each night and the staff in the bar were really nice. What makes this hotel worth a visit is the beach club. This is reached by a 5 minute bus ride from the hotel. We would get the 9.00 bus each morning and be the first on the beach whch was lovely as it is a private beach so no one else was there. The beachclub started to get busier between 11 and 12.00 but there are lots of sunbeds and umbrellas so you would always get one. The swimming pools are really nice and clean and the Rio cafe does nice food although the flies can be a pain. If you look at the internet pictures of this beach club they do not do it any justice. The beach has plenty of room and lots of water sports. The sea is warm and nice and calm. The hotel provide shuttle buses into Dubia. When we went there was lots of building work going on and the journey took 2 hours and we didnt think much of Dubia. Nearer the hotel (10 mins.walk)there is a small shopping centre worth a visit if you want to get cheap sports stuff . There isnt a lot to do/see but we hired a taxi for 3 hours one morning to take us on a tour.(hotel arranged this) He took us to the fishmarket, museum and then into the mountians. Nice trip and well worth the £15 taxi fare. All in all if you get a good deal on this hotel it is well worth it.
