The Dubai Carnival is on in Q1 and what a great racecourse - more important is to go there with a group and hire a box so that you have your won private area with drinks and food served throughout the evening. With all the change sin the past few years Meydan is very easy to drive into - just... More

Wonderful evening at the races in the Tiered Restaurant. Well looked after and excellent VFM. Two comments for future visitors to note: 1. Dress code says ladies should wear hats - no one else did apart from our table! 2. Availability of taxis at the end was very poor and the queue was long. So either pre nook a taxi... More

If you do make it to Meydan to experience a race make sure to book a room at the hotel for the full experience. Meydan racecourse is located deep inside the desert so consider planning your accommodation and transportation.

The staff is very supportive and every details is arranged to perfection, from the snacks to the technical support. Finally the buffet dinner has a very wide choice from Iranian to middle eastern and be sure... More

Before heading to the racetrack to watch the horse races, we asked around to get an idea of what to expect... Unfortunately nobody seemed to have been to the racetrack or know anything about it. They are missing out! Make sure you get the premium seating, it is definitely worth it. The place is amazing, really clean, great food and... More
