    Good luck, half board drinks/water expensive at Hilton RAK


    1. It’s 15 Dirhams plus tax for a 1.5L water bottle, more than enough for a family of 4 at dinner,.so reasonable value and way cheaper than going all inclusive (we stayed half board, breakfast/dinner)


  4. Rocking Dubai, I luv it xxx

    Looks too much like a package holiday, will be interested to hear about the desert places to visit around the resort.
