  • Nice place to spend time with family. Good place for family/friends gathering. No supermarkets, restaurant near by. So better go with enough stuff like water, juice, snacks, cards etc.
  • Great park for families, for jogging. Lots of space and usually not too crowded.
  • Nice place for outdoor. Would have been much better if BBQ was allowed. U can do jogging, running and other sports here ...
  • Very quiet place to relax after a long day work
  • Quiet place for a family day.

Where to stay in Al Ain

While Al Ain doesn't offer much in the way of true budget accommodations, many of its mid-range and luxury hotels are surprisingly good value. You'll find most hotels in the narrow streets of the old town, as well as some larger resorts around the fringes. Several of the city's hotels have swimming pools, which could provide welcome relief from the blistering heat. You can buy alcohol--heavily restricted throughout the U.A.E--at a few of the large hotels in Al Ain, including the Hilton and the Mercure Grand.
