A picture of me on the third floor. I had to wear a rugby shirt (long sleeves) as the weather was surprisingly chilly.

Another picture taken on a northeasterly direction approximately 6.30 am in the morning.

Below is a picture that I took on the top floor of the Safa-Marwah Corridor looking East just after dawn with the sun just about to show itself. The people at the railing are looking down at the Kaabah. You would also note the number of cranes on the right of the picture. There is a major construction project going on that will enlarge the Grand Mosque to be even bigger.

Another angle of the same scene. These pictures were taken approximately 7:00 am in the morning.

This is what a million plus people looks like on 3 levels surrounding the Kaabah. It was an experience like no other. It was quiet as everyone focus inwards in prayer.

This picture (bottom) was taken on the first floor. A sea of people.

The view from your window is breathtaking. Do bring a camera to capture the outdoor scenes especially in the morning and during sunset.

It is not a big resort and it would be advisable to book in advance due to the limited number of rooms available. To maintain the rustic charm, all modern conveniences that we would take for granted as being standard in hotel rooms such as television is not provided.

The Old Smokehouse in Cameroon Highland is a unique Tudor design building with period artifacts and other antiques. The garden is exquisite and coupled with the cold hill station weather; you could easily imagine yourself to be in England during early spring.The Old Smokehouse in Cameroon Highland is a unique Tudor design building with period artifacts and other antiques.

On the right of the hotel foyer is the main entrance of the Hard Rock Cafe. Here, the statue is marble and fashioned after Abraham Lincoln's statue in Washington. However, it is the King of Pop, Michael Jackson that is sitting.

Behind the car foyer is a huge bronze guitar and logo.

The car park foyer. Small, just enough to handle one car at a time.

At the entrance, a very nice electric guitar post box.

At the center of the pool complex is the bar and on the bar's roof are bronze statues of the Beatles - life size!

Nice and empty beach.

The beach. Relatively clean but not so the waters. Also, need to be careful as activities such as ATV riding as well as parachute towing is common in the area. You can just see a few jet skis waiting for customers.

A large tree pot with the Hard Rock logo on it.

The left wing of the hotel is more secluded.

I took these few pictures from the roof of the Kids Activity Centre and the gym. Nice open space with deck chairs. From here you can see the beach.

The pool that fronts the hotel covers the whole length of the hotel. There are deep end, shallow ends, water slides for kids, some parts have sandy bottoms while others have tiled bottoms. There is a place for every one from oldies, kids, teenager and honeymooners.

From the beach front, you can see the signage of the Hard Rock Hotel. Note the hotel is low rise, only 6 floors high. The best rooms are on the ground floor as you have direct access to the pool from your individual balconies.
