You don't have to be a Horse Racing Buff to enjoy the spectacle here - admittedly we came to watch the Dubai world Cup - but the whole splendour & orginisation of this place puts most other racecourse (& sports arenas) to shame - 1 mile ... yes 1 mile of Grandstands - seating for 70,000 spectators - lush green...

Horse racing aficionados, we were delighted with the excitement and glamour of this race day, particularly for the beauty and power of the horses. Veteran people watchers, got a lot of enjoyment at seeing the 'passing show', particularly the wonderful hats worn for the occasion.

Went to the Dubai World Cup and thoroughly recommend a visit if you are in Dubai. Excellent value, shame you can't have a bet.

We went to the World Cup Horse racing event and BEWARE of the type ticket that you purchase for this event. We purchased "general admission" which was a significant amount less than the "Apron View" ticket. The views were the same, however it was less crowded on the Apron view side and there was significantly more "Westerners." We sat with... More

Enjoyed the Friday Brunch at Farriers. A massive selection of good quality food, everything from seafood, salad bar, oriental, an outdoor BBQ where food was cooked to order and my favourite part, the cocktail station!!! There was a also a decent live band on which made for a really enjoyable afternoon. Good value!

We booked to go to the races while in England and picked up out tickets at the races on the day. We payed 75 quid per person to go into the Silks restaurant, this included superb complimentary food and drinks. Well worth the money whilst in Dubai as the prices of the drinks are very high. The view of the... More

Had a fabulous day at the World Cup Races, as with everything in Dubai the facilities are superb. Drinks not overly expensive, good selection of food. We had been worried about the heat - but when the racing started at 4pm the sun had moved behind the stadium. It ended with one of the best firework displays I have seen... More

Race course and facilities are superb - puts many UK race courses to shame. The World Cup ended with a fantastic fireworks display - nothing like we have ever seen before. Toilets/Catering facilities clean and no lengthy queues.

This Hotel is slightly far from the city => Less Crowded => Unique Restaurent => If you are a tourist try to avoid this as you taxi bill will come a lot => You can go there and enjoy there meals.
