Fantastic place with views that are a wow factor

  • 5 of 5

This is definitely a home from home and a fantastic place to stay.

I spent a week in this wonderful apartment with my 2 year old son. It was clean on arrival and there was even the basics to get you going like bottled water, tea and coffee.

It is very close to the pool and beach which is extremely clean and white sands.

I can't wait to go back.

Lovely position with beautiful sea views

  • 5 of 5

Super sea views with spacious balcony. Very nicely fitted bedrooms comfy beds and bedding and big bathrooms. Such a lovely flat with very communicative and highly efficient owners but marred by rather uncomfortable Arabic seating arrangements which would not appeal to all and nowhere to sit and eat at a table inside the flat. Kitchen very cramped and difficult to work in with no microwave or casserole dishes.

Television channels don’t work so need to rely on dvd’s.

Pick your month to go as the sun ☀️ does not reach the balcony all day in December /Jan .

Perfect beach front location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is very spacious and equipped to a high standard . The communal pool was lovely and the temperature great . The weather was fantastic too . There is a shopping mall close by with a food court and we used Nando's and Burger King etc . We had coffee and cake most days in the marina which was lovely . We hired a car at the airport so we're able to explore the area . Plenty of lovely hotels nearby with amazing restaraunts. I would def reccomend this apartment .

As they don't sell alcohol in local shops we purchased ours at Heathrow and carried it on board however there is shop in Dubai airport where you can purchase when you land .

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.

About Mark and Carmel

Mark and Carmel are a professional couple, with young children. We pride ourselves on the quality of the accommodation which is also our home abroad.

Mark is a company director, and Carmel has trained as an interior designer. This is reflected in the colours,fabrics and furnishings of the apartment which we feel are unique and unrivalled elsewhere.

Mark and Carmel purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Mark and Carmel chose Al Hamra Village

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!!

What makes this apartment unique

Convenience of being by the beach or poolside during the day and choice of eating in the apartment or at the many nearby restaurants/hotels. The apartment is a home from home and has a great feel to it. The Friday brunch at the Al Hamra Fort Hotel is quite an experience as well!

The centre of RAK is 10 mins away (approx £8 cost). It has a mix of shops, markets and a further 3 shopping malls, plus a number of nearby hotels. One of our favourites to visit is the Hilton Resort & Spa!
